But what I will do, is talk about what I'm working on this week!
At this point I've just finished priming the models and putting a base coat on the the bases. I always like doing the bases first, helps keep me motivated.
This prevents you from touching the model (messing up or transferring paint), and reduces fatigue. (it's a lot easier to hold!)
I've seen a number of people use this technique, so don't know the origin of it. I think I first saw Kris Belleau use it. So whoever originally came up with this idea. Thanks!
I should have been doing this from the beginning!
Well now I think I have an answer to that. All pots/bottles are not made the same.
Here we have two imperial primer pots. I got a pot of primer a few months ago, and was extremely unhappy with it. It never seemed to do anything or work properly.
Saw someone review a pot on a blog...it didn't look anything like mine.
Picked up a new pot...wow what a difference.
Original pot is on the left, new pot is on the right. It's entirely two different products.
I don't know what happened to my original pot, but it's trash.
Make sure to verify the reason you hate a paint isn't because it was a bad batch!
You get great coverage, and you can apply just the right amount to prevent detail loss. I really like it! Wish I had the good pot from the beginning!
These releases have also shown me how full of hate the internet is towards games workshop. It doesn't matter if its a good release or not...people complain continuously, sometimes without reason. It's really exposed the % of the population who doesn't even play an army. It's really easy to tell ork players from other 40k players (we are a bit nuts), and I haven't heard anywhere near the complaints from them that I have from people who don't even play the army. It's really eye opening!
I should be getting my ork kits soon, and will show you when they're built up! Have a great week everyone!
