All of my BA vehicles can seek a damn cliff. The reds look awesome after I get there....but damn. No paint brush is large enough, nor spray can fast enough. My one painted Stormraven has I think 7 coats of reds on it. It sure looks nice, but that was a lot of damn paint. Next one is gunna be Death Company I think....

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I too hate painting Chaos armor trim. And also wonder why I don't just regular marines. But they just look so badass and good.

I hate doing my traitor guardsmen, There are so bloody many(approximately 350 at last count) i hate them. But, when you can put down 350 painted and based infantry ready to go, it does make the effort worth while.

Resin Bases. Always start off not knowing what I want to do with it, how I should approach it and it's almost a complete "let 's just see how this goes!" but end up being really impressed with the result.

Rocks, flock and grass were so much easier... :-/

I will join the ranks of "Chaos Space Marine armor rims? FUUUUUUU!".

Additionally I think that tanks and big machines in general are more boring to paint, than small models. I had to paint 2 Rhinos and a defiler in a row, after which i felt like having my face meet a blender.

Either re painting my 8000 point ork army (not top bad because it wasn't full horde) or specifically re-painting the new ork deff dreads. So many bits, so little space....

Da Golden Waaagh!
