Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm hoping to get my first set of WarHammer 40k stuff around Christmas and I was wondering.... Could anyone show me a picture of a standard SM next to a quarter or other house-hold object? I've been painting army-men for practice, but I don't know how big the actual miniatures are. :unsure:
The standard minis are 28mm (just over 1 inch high), I am sure if you scan throug hthe gallery you will find some pictured next to other objects
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I believe the GW miniatures are 30mm.
No, they are 28mm.
Rackham and those are 30mm and above.
You gotta be freakin' kidding me! How do people get that much detail on stuff that tiny! Now I'm afraid to paint them.:cry:
It isn't that hard, just need some patience and steady hands.
And SM have a lot of flat surfaces and not many small details so it shouln't be so hard.
Just remember to keep your paint thin and you will be fine. Oh yeah and use the appropriate sized brush - not to big and not too small. 0 or 1 is about good for most details. 000 for the really tiny details.
not to mention the number of tutorials there are out there for painting all of the armies out there. so painting them shouldn't be a problem.

Don't shoot for the moon right off the bat, man. Everybody's got a few "Oh god, what was I thinking?" memories from their early attempts, you just get better as you go.Originally Posted by BigButt4
A lot of the details are built right into the models, so it's mostly like a coloring book - paint that grenade, but don't go "over the lines" and onto the armor. Once you get the hang of the basics, then you can move on to things like highlighting, blending, etc.
And definitely don't place too much stock in 'Eavy Metal or Golden Demon paintjobs. The stuff those folks turn out can often amaze the best of us, and they got that good with lots of practice and patience. Don't hold yourself up to that sort of standard just yet.
