Yeah, when you have 100+ paints several do tend to be forgotten.  :rolleyes:

 

I have the same problem on occasion, and I only have 75 so far.  I bet it will be even more pronounced once I double such...

I have unopened paint I haven't even seen in almost 15 years.

Oh, one more thing to add!

 

You ever see the (spoiler alert for 25 year old show, I guess) the episode of DS9 where O'Brien goes to virtual jail, and because of food shortages there when he comes back out and he's eating dinner with Keiko he starts taking food off his plate to save for later as a hedge against starvation?  Even though the replicator will provide all he could want?

 

I'm like that with brushes.  The absolute horror of running out at the worst time in 2016/2017 over the holidays and waiting forever for new arrivals, forced to work with my tattered and miserable poofy weasels, has made me completely paranoid about brushes.  So even though my new Ro & Co are magnificent and long-lived, I'm afraid to use them in case I run out.  So what I'm doing is riding brushes out until the most bitter end, even when a fresh brush is what I need to do the job. 

 

So I ordered a fresh supply, which is large enough that it should make me less scared of using them.  I literally ordered double what I thought I needed so I can carve off some to store away like squirrel nuts.  You know, in case I get sent back to virtual brush jail.

Yup, I rotate my brush usage.  And have live 5-6 R&Co, 2-3 Raphael, 2-3 W&N just so I won't run out.  I dip the end in primer so I know which is being relegated to primer duty so I don't accidentally use primer on my current good brush.

Thanks, guys! ^_^

I’m a lot happier with him now that I’m not painting him anymore. My brain just was not cooperating with me. 

I don’t think the shield would have turned out as well as it did had you not put in my head that the blank quarters could be boring, @Chaoswolf and who would've thought that even my cynical statements forcing myself to think positively would actually work out? :lol:

      I never know when my minis are done but here are the two fighters from the Dungeon Dwellers line, painted as a pair. Am using more and more Scale 75 paints, most of these colours are from their fantasy line with Army Painter washes.

      Hello all,this is the last mini I've painted. Very nice sculpt, every single detail is there, even if my poor, old, eyes can't reconize it 
      Trying to achieve a realistic look, she came out a little meh! IMO; it lack contrast, probably cause too brownish, but I was aiming a natural appereance, and choose to don't add too many colors.
      Anyway i'm happy the way she came out in the end. Hope you'll like her too 



       
      Thank you for reading :)

      The first painted mini of the year! I really love this sculpt. My favorite part by far is the comb over :D I did a poor job of cleaning the miniature before priming and starting to paint it (like always), so there's a bit of grain on the axe and other irregularities. But nothing to harmful.

      Enjoyed painting the single DD orc and brought two more. They are a bit bigger but very much in the same style.
       
      Applied the same colour scheme. Am looking out for the remaining two but think they may be limited edition.

      Hello everyone, finally i can post a mini I've finished to paint: during the holidays I was very busy at work and at home and had no time to paint :(

      Soooo here we have Borin Ironbrow, I was really inspired by the pose, the quality of the sculpt and the three weapon to choice: I've opted for the warhammer, cause a dwarf have to break rocks and skulls 
      Classic red beard, and red robe to make contrast with the green cloak, natural leather and METALS!
      Woooo! I got a bunch of new metals from  Vallejo Metal Colors for the holidays and had to try it and I have to say this are THE BEST metal i've ever used, so smooth application, superb metallic finish: the pictures can't capture the real effect, but believe me, those metals are just incredible! 
      Tried to make a Ancient gold finish for the armor and the hammer head, using steel, silver and washing it with some Sepia. It came out more Brass looking, happy of it hanyway!
      For the shield, helm and hammer handle I've opted for steel finish: for it i've used steel, dark grey wash and aluminium highlight.

      Ok enough bla bla... here we go:



      Thank you for reading, hope you'll like it!
