    How do you do it. I find it extremely hard. My scouts look like the were painted balck, then green, then had snakebite leather dumped on their heads and left to dribble down, until they were covered. I need your help desperately.

    Ta!

    use thinner coats, two thin coats give a better result then one thick one.

    also try to use only two or maybe three colours, and within these three colours make sure they arent radically different, try to keep it consistent and look like the surroundings its going to be in, my scouts are codex grey, fortress grey and black, as mine are cityfight scouts, also, use long, diagonal lines that curve gently instead of harsh zig zags unless it is city orientated....cheers

    Yeah, thin paints make your models sooooo much better. Also, those things they always tell you to do in the books (ie drybrushing and inking) can make your models look incredibly good, and are not hard to do.

    Why not? They're reallllllly easy, and can give a great look to your models.

    That doesn't make sense, you start a thread in a painting forum but " can't be bothered " doing the little easy things to make your minis look good.

    GW minis aren't cheap and what's more are of a fantastic quality, they really do deserved to be painted well.

    If you take the time and do the little things like inking and drybrushing, your model can look awesome.
