You can find a whole section of acrylic paint in Walmart.  The base coat for the BARCs is Folk Art brand 467 "Italian Sage" and the splashes of camo are 927 "Old Ivy".  I finished up with a clear coat.

I'm still at zero.  I found one at Target but can't justify spending $13 for a figure these days...

2 loose 1 carded. I had wanted to get more, but at $10-$12 each I may wait for a sale.

I'm at 4 so far.  I lucked into one of those Wal-Mart endcaps awhile back, and picked up three then (and they were all gone later that day).  I have since picked up one additional one at Target, although the $12 pricepoint stung a bit.  I initially set out to get 4, or maybe 5, so I'm happy - but there is a part of me that wants to pick one up each time I see one at retail.  I think I've actually seen them on four or five different occasions, at WM, Target, and TRU - much better than the one single VOTC Stormtrooper I ever saw.

Also, real nice custom BARC troopers there.  If I had that type of skill, I might attempt it myself.  I hope that Hasbro utilizes the Scout mold and does that for us themselves.  It would be great to get a figure of that trooper.

I'm at 18, mostly bought overseas simply out of a desire to keep my sanity.

I've seen two at retail...  I've got a couple more coming and hope to pick up some more from out of the country here next month to get me to my minimum.  At that point I'll pick up if I can afford them and find them readily.

In my area VTSC hasn't even shown up at WM yet that I'm aware so I'm hoping a big deluge of them comes at some point.  I'd love to walk in and see peg upon peg of VTSC...  Especially for $9.99.  TRU's only gotten a case here and there, nothing major...  Target is our only steady keeper of these it seems.  WM's so out of the game it's not even funny.

I am at 9 and counting.  This figure's sculpt is clearly one of the best I have seen.   Hats off to hasbro on this one.  The downside to this figure is that it is starting to become like a expensive crack habit. :P

I have a total of 1 carded and 12 loose. I think that will be my stopping point.

I've found a few of these, but I still just have my two. I can't justify $10 or more a piece for these. I wanted a decent number of Stormtroopers, so I bought a bunch of those, but I'm just not that inclined to get a bunch of these Scouts. I have a bunch from the POTJ line and I still think those are pretty good.

If I had mad camo-painting skillZ, I'd get a couple more to paint up in that Kashyyyk paint scheme, but since I don't, meh.
