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. :shok:
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!" :angry: Not that it would have mattered anyway, the thinnier was so storng it partially melted the plastic models :ireful2: 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.

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.

Toss up between the time I superglued my Chaos Terminator lord to my index finger or almost cut pinky finger off (well 8 stitches worth of cut into it) in a hurry to finish up a conversion. Showes me not to break my own rules when it comes to hobby knives.

Lol. drinking while painting. Sucks don't it? I once washed out my brush 3 times without realising it IN MY COKE!
Oh, I've pulled that one off, once or twice, too!

Actually I remember a worse one for me which tops Sinkoran.

Getting a dremmell stuck in my hair when drilling out gun barrells because I wasn't looking where I was putting it and ended up holding it too close to my head.

Go on beat that!

Look and marvel at how I made it to be 19 years of age.

Its like a small drill which goes very very fast. The one I use was bought by my father to take rock samples - hes an engineer specialising in testing materials for hardness so goes kinda fast lol.

Damn Jacobite, you made me remember this one. Wasn't paying attention to where I put the dremel down (was using a sanding bit to clean up mould lines on metal models, yes I am lazy) and bam dwarf lord goes flying across the room to embed in wall.

That's happened to me, but with SM and CSM. Airborne!

I think mine would be when I was finishing my table, a buddy and me were putting the finishing touches on (highlights on a wrecked CSM Landraider), and finished. We looked at each other, looked at the table, and I promptly spilled a half-can of Mountain Dew on it.

Or the time I glued bitz to my hand to keep them from being lost and couldn't get them off.

Or the time I drank paint water, and/or the time I washed off my brush in my coffee.

Or the time that I tried to cut my nails with the hobby clippers and took a chunk out of my finger.

Or most certainly the time I had with me trying to paint a BFG Nurgle Plaguefleet in a week. Too many nooks! Too many crannies! Too many ships! Ahhh!!! Greenstuff! I forgot to buy the Greenstuff!!
