    IMO buying the painting guide would be a good purchase. Don't know if you have the 4th edition rulebook or not but there's an example of painting 'nids that is simple yet effective. PM ('cuz we're getting a little off-topic here) me a list of paints you currently have & then I'll let you know what I would do with what you got. I've never "layered" before so I can't help you there. Mold lines & sprue marks can easily be taken off with a well placed x-acto knife and/or fine file. Since you primed your 'nids with white primer (I do as well) I'm thinkin' you want to paint 'em in more lighter instead of darker colors...am I right?

    sounds like spraypaint trouble, if the spots humid, your gonna have spraypaint trouble, coupla tips

    1. allways start the spray of the can away from the model then pass the spray across the model like a drive-by.
    2 shake the can for 2 minutes. shake inbetween sprays too.
    3. get at the model from all angles but keep it thin, don't spray an area unless the paint from the last spray is dry.

    white primer seems thinner than black, more watery so it'll be more important for the primer to dry before spraying again or else it'll just collect in the crevesses ruining detail.
    Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
