i just throw my photos up on an old busted up photobucket account and link to them from there. it's a bit of a hassle, but it works.

We're doing Dreadfleet by committee. I'm not sure I'd want to tackle the whole game. Those ships are amazingly detailed.

EDIT: Also, your paint jobs look sharp to me...

One thing you do want to be careful of when spray painting is the humidity. I've got a bunch of stuff I need to work on but it is WAY to humid here to spray anything.

I love you guys but jesus, the only thing more boring than listening to dudes talk about board games is listening to dudes talk about painting miniatures for board games.

Ha ha! That slick Ultramarines hoopty isn't mine...someone has stolen my name. This is like that time I was fined for having "Robofox" out at the video store, there was someone else named Michael Barnes.

I hear you Dave...I normally wouldn't post painting stuff in the weekly column, but...I didn't really have anything else this week! Maybe I'll talk more about Zimby Mojo next week...it's REALLY good.

On the humidity thing (sorry Dave)- yeah, I think that's what happened. GA humidity is about equivalent to Vietnam. I kind of wonder if it is the Army Painter rattle can too. I've had nothing but great results with P3 black spray (which has a different nozzle and a completely different coverage). The AP red and blue were both really good. But this white always seems problematic. I bought some (shh) white Painter's Touch and it did fine.

I actually prefer brush-on primer, which is not something I ever thought I would be saying. The little Vedros paint kit had a 3ml pot of Imperial Black primer and I _loved_ it. But then I bought a full-size pot and it wasn't nearly as good. That little pot went on like melted butter, it was crazy. I've been using a couple of Vallejo brush-ons too and having pretty good results with those as well.

Had a bad experience with Army Painter primer before as well.

I tend to go cheap-o and prime everything with the cheapest black spray paint I can find. Never had a problem with chipping or uneven results.

I've purchased 18 cans of Army Painter primer since 2011.
I like 'em, but with exceptions.
PRO: 100% color match with AP paints. That is awesome and time saving and cannot be stressed enough.
CONS: Pricey. Small nozzle. Imported. 4 of my cans have had nozzles bust, and paint flew everywhere.

Context: Unless it's a colored primer for a large troop, I'm using WHITE primer. No black for me.

Man the metamorphosis (dare I say apotheosis?) from ERP to mini painter over the last few years has been very intriguing to observe. More so when paired with my decline in involvement with the hobby over that time-frame, mostly due to more limited time to allot not waning interest.

Back on topic: I have been only using Gesso primer for like 4 years now, and I don't see any reason to go back. However I am pretty much never painting a large block of similar troops, if I was I guess there may still be a case for spray primer.

I use Vallejo Polyurethane Surface Primer for priming, hand-primed. If you have an airbrush it's also great to work with.
