Hey Kris...
What do you think are the top 3 things that new painters need to STOP DOING in order to have better looking armies? I find that a lot of new painters make the same mistakes due to lack of know how, your videos can stop the madness!

My hands aren't very steady and i find painting detail difficult. Do you have any advise?

You should do a whole Airbrush series from the different types of airbrush systems, techniques, thinning paints, etc.

ps. How are the Mercs coming? Would love to see you get those buggers on the table

Hey Kris,
you are a Native American. How important is the native culture to you? Is being a Native a big part of your identity? I am asking this, because I am Latvian and things like that are often important to us, so I was curious.

Hey Kris! A video about the salamanders stormtalon would be awsume! As i dont know what paints to use since the new paints are out!
Thanks again,

Kris, obviously all questions or requests generally feel important but... I think this is quite important in particular.

Obviously as you know for a lot of Warmachine/Hordes and a few GW miniatures these days the paint chips off them very easily.

What kind of varnishes would you recommend?

For example, Krylon crystal clear or their high gloss version, Testers dullcote, etc.

In the video with the addadon painted by Worthy painting, you mentioned a 000 brush. You said it was from windsor and newton. What brush exactly were you talking about because there are a lot of different types of brushes labeled 000. Another question, what brushes are good for moderate painters from windsor and newton.

Hey Kris!

Two things:
First: Could you do the epic "Ohh Yeaahh!" again?
Second: Who is the luckiest dice roller you know? Is it Dave?

Keep up the good work!

Hi Kris!
I have a terrain question.
How would you do the pavement?
I'm making a city fight table and I wanted to add some pavement around the buildings but I have no idea how to make a good looking pavement.
I'd love to hear your opinion on this matter.

hey would you ever do a video tutorial on that hairspray technique? and i also vote for that freehand video

rkempston (Over a year ago): - delete
@Pyrotechnics45: I'm not a professional painter myself but i know Kris has said in previous videos that he bases all models at once or does one piece of all models at a time that way he has a "I already started it" mentality.

Hey Kris. I'm an Imperial Guard player and I often find myself staring at my sea of unpainted plastic guardsmen and feeling a bit disheartened. Do you have an advice for how to stay motivated when painting large numbers of models? On that note, what do you find is the best way to go about painting large numbers of models?

Hi! I'm a Space Wolves player and I'm a very slow painter. So being a slow painter yourself, how do you get yourself to sit down and paint your way through an entire army?

Decals... Deckles. Ha! My Canadian friend pronounces them the same way. Love your videos Kris!!

I think that a freehand tutorial would b awesome also could you do a tau tutorial in the T'au Sept colours then you would b a boss!

Hi Kris, I'd like to see a video on how to use weathering powders. Keep up the great work

I second Xloiero95X's comment, I'd love to see a tutorial on how to use an airbrush, as I've got absolutely no clue how to work one and would love to try one some day.

Hey Kris, thanks for answering my question, I'll keep my eyes pealed for that video down the road Had one more question for you. I've heard a lot of people talk about how to clean up Finecast figures, and how to fix all the small miscasts and bubbles, but have not yet seen a video on it. I was wondering if you could do a tutorial specifically on this process, as it looks like I'll have no choice but to buy finecast if I'm to stay in 40K. Thanks again Kris, and keep up the good work!
