Aye aye sir! ;)
So tonight I only got the purple areas based tonight. Was hoping to do more but now I have a headache that is making focusing on painting difficult. Maybe if the Advil kicks in before bed time.

On a random note. Months ago I mentioned that there needs to be a mini a month club that sends you a random mini. I recently discovered that there aa webstore doing a loot crate like thing for min wargaming. The webstore is called Dice Head. I haven't looked too much into it, but you can pick between sci Fi or fantasy, and its a.mix of model kits and hobby supplies. I will probably look into it more thoroughly when my fincial state is a bit more stable.

Alright so.. Finally painted a bit Sunday and Monday night. I have a good reason for not painting for awhile. I wasn't happy with the results of my old brush cleaning method but I couldn't get Masters brush cleaner right away. I am much happier with how clean my brushes are getting... Although I think I may be pressing too hard. Light touches are difficult for me.

Are you getting bent bristles? Just use the Masters, and shape it by gently twisting the bristles into form.

Yeah, I tried that last that last night. Works amazing. I meant more when I use Masters itself... Instead of a lather I get more of a scraping

I noticed it'll get hard and cake soemtimes if it's older

I add water directly now to my cake because, well, I'm lazy :P it lathers better and faster, but you'll go through more of it

Just some touch ups tonight. It's only a base coat but I believe that if you start well you end well... That and I am a *leetle* OCD when it comes to this stuff. I tried to paint on paper awhile back and my teacher remarked he could tell I painted models because how focused on little details I was.

Base coat done ,unless I see any more spots I missed. Now I just have to deal with the fact am now leaning toward making Khador my main Warmachine army... This is becoming a trend with me I think.

Leaving Trollbloods for Khador??? Blasphemy! hehehe. Mine were/are Trollbloods and Menoth. I've yet to paint the Harbinger, but she's calling my name...

Oh no! When I started I told myself I would focus on one Hordes faction and one Warmachine. With Hordes started with Circle switched to Trollbloods. Now I was planning to focus on Menoth but feel myself.being pulled by Khador. I will.probably play more Hordes than Warmachine... But just so I don't get sick of painting one thing.

Got the gold done last night. Not.happy with it are though, just too bright.

Also decided instead of painting a lot of different factions in one game systems I am going to branch out to other mini ranges. Going to try to focus more animal ones me thinks.
