Quick preamble: I can’t paint well. Don’t take this blog as advice on painting, but just as a record of what happens when someone who can’t paint well tries regardless. If nothing else, it helps me remember my colour schemes.
Painting the Arcanist
Having bought the Ret army box, I guess I’d better get back on the painting wagon and start with the Arcanist (not so much of the white on it as most models, which gives me a chance to practice on a less hostile canvas after my Kaelyssa disaster). Before starting, I put it onto a nice base, and primed it with the same gesso/white/water mix I used on Kaelyssa. I’m likely to regret this, as I’ve never had much success using this on metals, but it was dark and wet outside so I couldn’t use a spray.
