    Your worst painted models... the models you wish you could forget about!

    Post pics of those models you painted that you really don't like, or models that you painted years ago and have improved upon since...

    Here are 2 of mine i photographed with you guys. Comments and crits are welcome but remember this is to lighten the mood of the forum.



    The gretchen/grot was painted in 1994, the ganger i think late 1995/6

    When i First started, I ended up totally wrecking a tac squad of marines, I painted them all with thick black gloss paint. Totally, all over. Including the head of the sgt. Im shocked to think I did it now, but back at the time I thought it was great.

    Gareth, i wouldnt worry about the quality of those two models, your ones now more than make up for it (and those look very similar to my standard of painting now!)

    I'm betting most people would claim their first figures but I'm still pretty proud of mine. Covered in thick enamel testors paint, he's a bit of a mess but you can't forget your roots.
    Mine would be a metal termie captain basicly painted in flat grey with every bit of detail picked out but no highlighting or anything. Right at that amatuer crossover period when my mates noticed I might have some potential as a painter. I've been trying to strip it for years but no one will let me.

    I think I still have a shouilderpad left somewhere from my all-time worst. It was newyearseve and all the rest of my family was sick, so I sat in the sofa with my first CSM-boxed set and some newly bought paints and some wine. Firecrackers lighthening up the sky.
    Since the paint was brandnew and all I ever used before that was really really old paints heavily watered down do abstract some sort of pigments, I felt like in heaven. Didn't bother to use water other then to clean my brush...
    When I had basecoated it I remember thinking...hey, where did all them fancy details go?
    The next day I had a headache...

    I thought all colours was highlighted with white (looked like it then), so that's what I did with my first army of lizardmen. Alot of white stripes on a lot of green lizards looked a lot like crap. Don't have any pics of them though .. would probably ruin the lens of the camera if I tried .. :x
