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...
- 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.
- There will always be a piece of flash that's invisible until you prime...then it's enormous.
- 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?
