See if you can find a can of Krylon H2O spray paint. It does not eat styrofoam and covers pretty well. I find it at Michael's as well as hardware stores.

Thanks for the tip Blue!

So lately I've been working on some Dwarf miners ( a unit of five at the moment). But I've been kinda bummed out for hobby stuff. I can't afford to buy anything in June for the hobby because money that isn't going to bills etc is going to clothes, because its either that, or I look like a hobo. Not a good thing.

I'm so glad i only have a few more things to pick up for my vampire counts. 3 skeleton boxes, 2 grave guard, and 2 Vargheist boxes. Now it comes out to around $240. But its worth it.

And then there my Battlefleet Gothic stuff. Maybe $80 more and I'll be finished.

I've been buying stuff for only 3 years. But the amount of money I've spent is stupid. I could have a nice car, or just a whole lot of money. Instead I bought 9 plastic armies...

Oh well, its still a whole lot of fun! :mrgreen:

But with all the money I will have after I'm finished, I might buy some cool stuff like Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Have you tried those? They are amazing!

Thanks! In other good news I think I *may* ( big may here) be able to squeak in a Circe of Orboros starter pack this month. WEE!



Also in other news my brain has decided to chew on the idea of re painting my Bretonnian once I've switched mostly over to Reaper paints... Part of me thinks its good idea for at least part of the army, so when I add more Men@Arms they all look coherent... but part of me thinks this may be a practice in pain.

*Finally* finished base painting the miners. Sometimes I forget that some metallic paints are a paint to work with.
