Blackadder's Instant Paint Job:

So I'm watching these Youtube videos how to paint Skitarii and they are quite involved what with the spray painting with grey primer and then gunmetal silver and washes etc. A marvel of tenacity and patience........

and I look at my Warlord and Thunderhawk and to my unpracticed eye I see very little difference between all that work and the relatively simple Flat Black Primer and rubbed in Graphite powder.

So I'm going to share my simple yet effective and cost effect method of acheiving the same effect with a tenth the effort.

First I spray paint all the figures with ElCheapo Walmart brand $0.99 cents a can Flat Black Primer.

Just one light coat and inspect out of doors in bright sunlight to make sure all the areas are covered.

And let dry overnight.
