indeed, I have had a similar experience.Back in my teens I had more time than money, and I just did very basic paint schemes, so I finished painting every single model I had. Since restarting a couple of years ago I have more money than time and I spend a lot longer on each model
it's all practise, for years mine were oki"sh", ok, not bad, nice, etceven when i take my time painting my models there still only mediocre at most, i spend like a week on a 5 man squad
Hey now, I help build some of those lists, at least for the wolf lists, and I don't play like a twat..... I play like an American. Iow, "if you ain't first, you're last."you'd never know, you've never played me, and although I'm not the best since I don't copy paste lists off forums and play like a twat, I'm not terrible.
I will mind battle you for those Space Orks!I've just remembered that amongst the many unpainted figures I've got hanging around, I've still got some Space Orks from my first boxed set with just an undercoat. And they're twenty-odd years old from when they first came out! HA HA HA HA HA...
