Default Stupidest thing

What is the stupidest thing you've ever done concerning warhammer modelling and/or painting?

Just an hour ago, I got out some blood red paint out of the pot to do some purity seals and put it on the table. I placed the pot down and watered down the paint......I picked up the paint pot again and was dumbstruck. I thought that this was my Justicar but I couldn't see any purity seals. I was sure a justicar had loads of them. I, for the life of me could not figure out what was wrong.
I put the pot down and closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I opened them and went on painting my justicar as normal.


Weird huh?

I spilled paint thinner on about 8 finished models that weren't covered in "Dull Coat!" Not that it would have mattered anyway, the thinnier was so storng it partially melted the plastic models I'm more mad about the time and effort wasted building/painting the models then actually having to buy new ones.

I had all my finished models on a small shelf, I sold a handful on ebay so I had to pack them, I ended up dropping one in my dirty water cup. I pulled out the model it looked like it had been covered in brown ink. I had to rehighlight before packaging.

I glued a Commissar's arm on upside down recently...

I don't know if that's what you're talking about, I've not really been doing this long enough to have any really good stories.

I'm always to be found with something to drink near at hand. always.

Once, long ago, I was painting some stuff for a freind of mine in one long, marathon session, and without really looking up, or being completely clear-headed, reached out for my drink, and took a sip from the cup of dirty, yucky water I'd been rinsing my brushes in since the last time I had changed it (which was like three hours beforehand)...

Ever since then, I pretty much stick to bottled or canned beverages when painting.

'At two minutes to eleven, opposite the South African Brigade, at the eastern-most point reached by the British armies, a German machine-gunner, after firing off a belt without pause, was seen to stand up beside his weapon, take off his helmet, bow, and then slowly walk to the rear.' -John Buchan

Hell I paint in front of my computer and I managed to spill my dirty water on my wireless brand new keyboard

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Not shaking a can of varnish before spraying it on my concept model for the Grey Knights. It looked as if it had walked through a snow storm. Was not pleased in the slighest. Kinda didn't pick up a paint brush in about 6 months after that.
