I remember when i first started(havnt played for bout 9 years). i got necrons too. Now i was about 14. My painting was so bad that you couldnt tell they had eyes. I put sooo much paint on the brush. Im yet to see if ive learnt my lesson 9 years later but i hope so!!!!

Washed them all with diluted black! It worked for my unbasecoated Imperial Guard that looked shitty, now they have squiting eyes and cloth wrinkles!

just take your time mate. its sounds cliche' but its soo true. if i rush i end up fucking everything up, just sit down listen to some music, chill and let it flow. and remember, you will think your painting is worse than it really is!! and do certain stages on separate days, dont try get everything done at once. whoever takes the piss out of your painting are idiots, its your models so no one can scrutinise you for it. and even if they did, who cares lol, like you want to compete for manhood in painting techniques!! haha

I'm with LRL. Don't rush. I painted all my blood angels red with a quick coat of spray so they'd look red instead of gray. Now I'll paint two or three guys a week, listening to music and imagining what its like to have two hearts, reinforced bones, and an unquenchable thirst for blood. And they don't turn out that well, but their guns are black and they have green eyes. Enjoy it!

I still have this 'Oh shit, so much to do, so much to do,'-feeling. Quite annoying, as even if i try, I simply can't get myself to paint quickly. It is the curse of those who bought too much warhammer in too short a while and never got to paint any finished... sigh...

94% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 6% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.
95% of teens would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this if you are part of the 5% that would yell "DO A FLIP!!!"
