Whilst I will eventually get round to painting a couple...

So, the original plan was to have this article go out around the same time as the Warcry release, and with the recent birth of my son you've probably all now figured out how well that panned out. Yep.

Man, do I ever agree with you on how garish and silly the default stormcast look to match them up with the ultramarines. I just feel the bright stuff is a better fit for 40k marines.

Edit: I find your *very* exact details extremely helpful, I know they are tedious to write up. For example, how many coats.

And that's it. All you need is a steady hand and a good eye.


Ugh. YOU MAKE IT SOUND SO EASY.

Thanks for writing that up. That was a really interesting read, and the mini looks fantastic. I just started painting minis in the past year, and I'm hopelessly addicted now. I went to the board game store this weekend, and I barely even looked at board games. Instead, I spent my time gazing at Reaper Bones and paint colors. I can't believe how excited I get to shop for freaking PAINT. Oooh, do I have this shade of purple?!?

Thank you. :) I'm aware that there a lot of painting guides out there that I think that I as a beginner wouldn't find quite comprehensive enough. I see people asking questions like "How do I stop my hand shaking?" and "How many coats should I use with this paint?" so I'm trying to approach the tutorial thing from a slightly different angle.

Basically, I think that everybody should have miniatures painted to a standard that they're happy with, and I think that is achievable with the right information. At the very least I think everybody can get some sort of catharsis from it if it's taught right.

Ha ha! I'm glad you're enjoying it so much. And that line was supposed to be encouraging - apologies if it wasn't! My feeling is that there is quite a bit of misinformation about painting certain colours out there (white, black, yellow and flesh tones in particular) and I want to try and take the apprehension out of painting those colours as much as possible. They're colours that turn up a lot so there should be efficient ways to paint them!
