Hey all, I just started painting again about a month ago. When I was in highschool and a bit younger (too long ago) I tried a little bit - I MAY have primed, and MAY have used more than 1 colour paint... but I'm not sure. I found out about the second kickstarter, and figured I should get some practice in before that. I have the first Learn to Paint kit, and a few mega minis that I grabbed before they closed. There was a lot I found frustrating, and a lot that I picked up along the way. 1) I'm never doing eyes last again. Ever. (They still kill me, even though I've read and watched a lot of tutorials, and I can do it on paper). 2) Taking pictures is a good way to see what you've missed... like painting the pants up under the tunic -whoops -especially when it's not visible unless you look. 3) I noticed mold lines after I started. Some of it I couldn't conceive of removing without damaging the mini. They aren't so visible in person. 4) Some of my paints are waaaaaay runnier than others. I managed to cover up some minor issues but it was a huge hassle 5) I learned when to walk away. I'm doing these for gaming, so they don't need to be perfect. 6) These are much shinier than in person, due to needing flash. Here's a group shot, I took quickly with my phone (all pics with the phone for now) There's something I like about all of these... so I guess that's a success. Now updated with LTPK 1 pics and 02303 Mason Rowan pics When I was painting Rowan, I had planned out a tartan on the kilt. The blue paint ran over everything. I managed to clean it off, but I no longer had any interest in going through my complicated plan. I did a quick fake by just doing a few regularly spaced lines of different colours. It does the job. I had to redo the socks as well, and no matter what I did, I couldn't get rid of the grass stain on his knee.
