Mini Painters' Corollaries to Murphy's Law

Today I finally had the time and the climate to lay down a coat of primer and begin painting a set of eight Spartan Hoplites I'd assembled months ago, before the arctic came to visit for six months.  And I began to remember some things about miniature painting...

  1. There will always be one color that you just can't get good coverage with...until you accidentally get some on part of the figure you didn't want it on.
  2. There will always be a piece of flash that's invisible until you prime...then it's enormous.  
  3. A hair will inevitably fall on to wet paint.  Even if you're entirely bald, a hair will materialize from somewhere.  
Anyone else have any good ones?
