    Recently I finished painting my Crimson Tears and decided to take them to a gaming shop to play a bit. When I got there, I was appalled to find that my army was the only one with any significant amount of paint. I think that painting the armies and fielding a good-looking army is one of the joys of 40K. I mean, when your just passing by a table doesn't a fully painted army just grab your attention? Part of the reason I got into 40K in the first place was because of awesome painted models I saw. Now I'm no master painter, but I do put effort into painting up my models so they at least look decent. The real point I'm trying to get to is, does playing against unpainted models just bother anyone else? I know it bugs the crap outta me!

    My chaos army was like 50% unpainted, and there were a couple models that weren't even put together (ie, dreadnought, and autocannon guys). But my Tau army is getting the royal treatment, painting wise.

    I&#39;ve had my Crimson Tears for almost a year now (although they stayed tiny for a long time). They were half finished until a few weeks ago, but at least they had some paint on them. Finally finished my Guard as well, and they look even better than my Marines. I&#39;m in the process of painting my new Sisters now..

    Personally, I never field a mini that isn&#39;t painted.

    Same here, I refuse to field an unpainted mini. I do field minis that aren&#39;t properly based though :o .

    Buy based I assume you mean the models base. That I don&#39;t really care about, although I do think my models look better with the bases painted green instead of black. I don&#39;t really do any flocking or anything.

    Some people just like to play and dont give a fig about painting. I have a friend thats like that, a undercoat base is all he needs. I love to paint and field a nice looking army at least to myself. Ill never be as good as some of other people out there.
