Okay, so im going to start my basecoating my army really soon, but it's winter here in Canada. I live in an apartment building and only have a balcony, so I'm wondering where I should be spray painting the models. Any suggestions?
From another frozen Canadian... If you absolutly can't spray in the apartment, then wait for a dry day, make sure you mini and primer spray are at room temperature. Dash onto the balcony, give it a spray and dash back in to dry. Make sure the next mini is warm and the the primer can is room temperature again before you do it again.
This may take you some time
You might also look into using a "brush on" primer during the winter months. Reaper sells a version with it's Master Series Paints.

See if a friend will let you use their basement?
both great options thanks. Now all i gotta do is wait for this dam snow to stop....snowing...
Im not aloud to spray indoors, the other half goes mad at me when I do, but ive got two ways of cheating and getting my spraying done without her ever knowing!
The first is risky, it requires her to be at work for at least 4 hours. I simply spray in the kitchen with the extractor fan on, and leave the mini's on the kitchen counter to dry. The extractor gets rid of the smell and fumes, and if there is a little bit left over when she returns... 'It must be the models love, I brought them inside to dry'
Second way is alot safer. Do it in the bathroom with the door tightly shut, then turn on the shower full heat, wait for steam, and open the window. The steam and the fumes mix and get sucked outside for a lovely smell free room!
Im so bad lol.
oh you canadians and your snow....um what was i saying uh i dont realy know how add more to this but i say do the "friends basement" thing, if you cant spray in your house that is
good luck buddy
I agree, the air needs to be as dry as possible or you get a weird effect when the paint dries. First reply was right - with your minis at room temperature, rush outside, spray fast, rush back in.
Do it this way and give it three or four light coats, better that than risking one heavier coat but it bubbling due to the humidity.

well s for myself (another canuck) I place my models on a board 9usuallt an old pizza box or somthing of the like. and run outside, quickly spray a unit and then run inside and set the box ontop of the closed seated toilet with the fan on in the bathroom. after an hour or so I check the dryness of the models and then flip and repeat. the girlfriend and children get the warning that fumes are in use!..if possible I wait until everyone is asleep at school and work ect. and then have the bathroom free to dry the models.
I think the big thing is be patiet, I spray one day to expect to paint the next day. SO if my unit is almost done I'll prime the next one that day so that tommorrow I can finish one unit and start on the other.
