    Aye. I agree with Kasrkin Man. Camoflague takes less tim to paint, and still looks effective. Maybe not as good as my origional method, but still pretty damn good.

    using darker colours will help you get away with more mistakes because it can be harder to differentiate the colours, hence less time spent fixing up any thing wrong, which means less time spent painting a single mini.

    btw you do do a production line don't you?

    btw....means by the way...he's saying that it goes MUCH faster to do a production line. Undercoat all your guys, then do one color to ALL your guys, then do the next step to all the guys...and so on and so forth.

    i dont usually undercoat mine. i just paint straight onto the model. this gets me the effect i want and i do you a producion line, i do all of the shoulder pads, helmets and base first. then my friend does all of the trousers space wolf grey and then he does the top armour shdow grey. then the deail is done.

    he prefers painting tan gaming so he is happy to do his and i pay him and this way both are happy - i get nicely painted models whils he gets money.

    Win-win situation...I guess. I would rather paint my models entirely on my own...it's kind of an ego thing between me and my buds...but whatever suits ya!

    You really should undercoat your models. It helps the paint adhere to the model, and will help stop any rouge blotchyness.

    ok i might do that.

    how do people undercoat their models?.

    do you use a brush and pot of paint or do you spray paint them?.
