On most smaller models like troops, there are tight spots where I can't paint correctly in, such as where the arm is pressed against the chest. How would you reccomend painting these tight spots? Do you paint on the sprue? I tried to just basecoat it and leave it that way, but it didn't look good.
when i know i am going to have little tight spots like that on my mini's, what i usually do is either paint that part (oh lets say its an arm) on the sprue and then glue it on. Butr sometimes i dont like this because those spots can pose as good shadowing sometimes. So what i try to do first is just try my best at it, but if its a spot (unless your painting a mini for some award) taht some people just find hard to see, then just try your best at it. But to get used to doing it maybe try not working on the detail too much, just get the basic part of whatever your finding hard too reach. Hope that helps

This is generally the benefit of priming black. If you prime white I might suggest at least inking the joints with black ink. Also depending on how you hold your miniatures while painting sometimes I find it helpful to hold the figure upside down or sideways to get better access to various tight spots on the figure.

After you spray your black undercoat grab a brush and dip it in some watered down paint. Dab it into all the little cracks and crevices until no grey shows.
Or you could undercoat the body and then glue on the arms with you've undercoated seperatly.
Don't paint on the sprue - you'll find when you clip the pieces out and shave off the excess crap you'll just trash your paint job.
If you don't know what you want you end up with a lot of stuff you don't.
Yeah, I now paint all my models and arms seperately, then glue them together, and it works perfectly.
If your have a problem with this tryed painting the modle peice seperatly. Like take the modle glue it together (spray it) but leave the arm off and do the arm seperatly and use primer it on the sprue along with other bits to hard to paint. Than after glue the peice on but be warry of the white spots OF DOOOM that are left on by the ripping of the sprue!!!!! AHHHHHHHH
EDIT: I like space wolf modles... I like chaos... I cant reach spots. EVIL BLACK LEGION SPACE WOLVES! Go black primer for the lazy man!
