It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve done one of these. Work and life has been getting crazy busy of late and I honestly felt like I was losing control of everything. This Monday I found myself at home with a sick child and used the time to take stock.
I’m busy painting the models from DOOM the Board game and I thought “why not write up how I’m going through the process”. Now; I’ve already painted the Imps and I’ve started with the Marines so I don’t remember exactly which colours were used. I’ll do my best to describe the colours that I have used in these guides. For the future guides (the rest of the models) I’ll make notes so that you can have a better idea of what I’ve done.
It’s been a while since I’ve had time for one of these in fact I think it’s my first this year! I have been busy, at least it feels this way, so let’s see what I have been up too.
I’m sure I’m not the only person who has a few hundred models that need paint slapped on them. It’s also safe to say that there are others like me who have a few hundred models on order too. It’s especially easy to have that happen with so many Kickstarter projects that just churn out the models. This year I’m expecting Massmorra, Dark Souls, Mythic Battles, Kingdom Death, among others. So with time at a premium I need to find a way to get the bulk (rank and file) models painted up to a decent table top standard fairly quickly or I’ll never get anything done.
Enter Army Painter…
So I’ve had this piece of foam core sitting in my study for almost a year. I bought it with the intention on making custom inserts for the games I have that really need them. I’m looking at you FFG. However most of the foam core ended up being used on school projects for the kids. It is very easy to work with and you can make some really cool stuff with it.
Then I got Food Chain Magnate. It cost me R 2,250. There are over 300 cards in the box and it has no insert at all….
