Well, it's pretty simple really. I've been painting minis on and off for near enough 10 years now and realise that my hands will never manage to capture the image of what I see in my mind. I have very little patience (for anything, never mind painting) so it would seem that the solution is simple.
- prime black, base coats and drown the bastarding thing in brown ink. (or Devlan Mud these days).
It's not gonna produce any Golden Daemon results, but, from 4ft away, it doesn't look too shabby, and that's all that really matters, as that's kinda the standard depth of a gaming table.
Of course, not everything gets just the one coat. I'll invest some extra time into characters, but, as any self-respecting gamer knows, the more attention you lavish on a model, the higher the chances of it being mangled in any game you use it...
Still, I'm going to use this as a log of my painting exploits, and no doubt, all sorts of profanity laced discourse on minis and gaming in general.
That's it for now. I have some Crypt Ghouls in need of some brown lovin'...
