I like wine. I like coffee. I like Warhammer. I like complicated sentences. I figure I should combine my loves and make a Queen Latifah made out of Huntsman cheese. Oh wait, wrong two loves... I mean, I should combine my loves and make 40k dudes painted with coffee and wine.
Or at least, in my mind, it's a really great idea. Like, nobel-prize winning. Already I'm imaging my Eldar Rangers wearing cloaks hued in the earth tones of gray paint blended with 100% pure Arabica beans. My warp spiders are bathed in a simple red mixed with the complex burgundies of cianti.
And NO, I'm not doing this so I can lick my armies mid-battle to get trashed and/or buzzed. Shut up!
Anyway... so uh... has anyone tried anything like this? While wine and coffee stain everything you don't want it to stain, something tells me they won't bond to primer very well... so I'm figuring it'll require some sort of mixing with paints or whatnot...
So if any thoughts on my idea (aside from 'get help') let me know... I'm thinking aboutu trying this in a couple weekends but I figured I'd ask first and see if anyone else has tried this before and has harrowing tales of sorrow with which to stray from a path that can end only in bitter tears.
Uh... Methinks this probably won't work. The only way to get them to adhere would be to mix with paint, but because they're so watery they'll be like an ink wash... Besides, do you want your entire army to have the unsavory odor of combined coffee and wine?
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
Now that I'm thinking of it now... If you mil, you know make a dust, the coffee you can use it to drybrush some areas! For the wine unfortunately it won't work as it is too watery to stay on the model!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I'm thinking that you have maybe had a little too much wine this evening.
Put the cork back in the bottle, and get a nice brew going.
Imbibe liberally of the holy coffee bean and forget painting with these two substances.
At least on models.
If you were going to paint on paper or canvas, I'd say go for it.
So maybe you could use wine & coffee to paint up some banners, but thats about it.
