What just drives you crazy while painting and modeling?

Is it spilling that pot of paint, slicing your finger with an exacto knife, dropping that freshly painted model on the floor?

Mine is when I'm down to my last fine detail brush and i go to wipe it off and a bunch of the hairs come out...especially if it's the brush I need to finish the models I'm working on. Just drives me nuts!

Fucking metal models that won't stick with parts too small to pin. Sexy style demonettes, aaaarrrrrrgh. The bloody arms never stick. And Obliterator claws/weapons.
Extreme anger generators.
The cutting yourself bit happens all the time. Doesn't bother me too much. At one stage i cut my thumb so badly i was bleeding everywhere. I had a Kharn on the desk ready to base. I almost decided to base him in a pool of real human blood, i had so much to spare apparently. Hygene issues got the better of me though.

You should try putting a penitent engine together.

Pinning is the answer to that.

Yea, it's super glue for me as well..well more to do with the fact that 'this' brand adheres quicker/slower to 'that' brand, irregardless of price paid for it.

Or sticking an arm to a model takes 30 secs for one and the next arm takes 30 bloody minutes.

Drives me :crazy:

The best super glue I've found is Zap A Gap..works brilliant on Resin.

METAL MODELS specifially Hydras that are not properly scaled, never fit right into the holes, etc.

Looks at his disassambled Penitent Engine and the 2 wasted tubes of super glue :headbutt: Yeah, I know the feeling.


What really drives me crazy is looking at a model I thought I had finished and noticing unpainted details. Extra points if I notice it while deploying them during a game!

Green Stuff! Ha Ha

But in all seriousness I hate HATE super glue, I got stuck to my Painting desk too! I was putting together my Obliterators and got stuck becasue I used to much.

The one thing that makes it the worst is not blending colors right the second time around. Running out of custom Blue, or Red and then having to make more and not getting it right so the models look different UGH :headbutt:

the custom colours thing is part of the reason I never use a true mixed colour for my armies unless its for special characters.

to avoid the army looking off from the paints not mixing the same way, unless its intended.

Super Glue, and painting a small detail, and my hand trembles, getting a smal dot of red on the white armor of the model.
but i try to avoid metal models if at all possible.

defiantly metal models and the pricking the finger with an exacto knife, super glue is the stuff of the devil causing me to glue a daemonette arm to a glass table and obamas face (from a news paper) to my elbow

What's get under my skin the most is sharp pointy metal models and my model knife. Other than that the unopredictability of super glues adhesive effectiveness on metal models especially when it's GW super glue!

I've only just started but the thing I hate the most is not knowing what colours to do. I just sit and stare at pots of paint for 30 minutes, give up and look at ones on the internet.

Once I know what colours I'm doing its pretty good so far. I say so far because I've only done 6 miniatures in total!!
