My friends call devlan mud "Skill in a can".

Anyway, since I'm out of pictures, I guess I'll provide some reading material, seeing as my hobby place is full of painters who can't seem to get it right.

I used to be pretty bad myself, I would paint urak-hai with codex gray armour and all that, but I've come a far way from it, here's some of my work (I fixed these guys up since then, since I've noticed some hilarious mistakes.)

Now, we have one guy who used to go to my hobby shop who doesn't go anymore, and we called him 'shit eating grin', I did a early morning huge story thing on him because I could, but he's notorious for bad painting.

His firewarriors were painted a solid colour, baby barf yellow. It was embarrassing to look at, since the paint dried (Or too much paint was used) before it settled, causing them to look like horribly mutated freaks.

I just noticed I need to use less gold and more silver.

Now, he had no painting ability whatsoever and I wish I had some of his models to prove it. He would paint his tau tanks random colours, seriously. His idea of camouflage was painting said tank a solid green, blue, or red. Then adding polka dots of another colour everywhere, we called them the circus tent tanks which he hated with a passion.

He also painted a baneblade baby barf yellow and fluffed it as a fixer-upper the tau stole and started using in their own army because they could.

His battlesuits also came in random solid blobby colours: Silver, red, green, brown, or baby barf yellow.

His kroot came in one colour: Brown, just poop brown.

To be honest, I miss fighting against his armies because his drones were either on the base, half on the base, or off the base or somewhere in the general vicinity of the base, it was fun.

Also, just noticed I missed his skull backpack, thankfully when I went over these guys, I fixed that.

And I also painted that scroll thing on his leg gold, what the hell was I smoking?

Anyway. We also had a player who played salamanders, he was only a wee lad but would never accept any of our painting tips, which sucked because he bought FUCK TONNES of models and would always paint them in heinous ways.

Dreadnoughts of solid green and marines with blobby black shoulderpads, vulkan h'stan (Or whatever his name is) was a random assortment of flakes of paint and showing metal. His little banner thing was nowhere to be found.

Back to blobby-tau guy, he also played dwarves for warhammer fantasy. He painted his dwarves only silver or gold, including that anvil lord guy. All of his cannons? Silver or gold. The skin? Mostly silver, dabs of gold.

I honestly had no idea what the fuck he was trying to paint, but then again he painted circus tent tanks so these sort of things weren't beyond him. He liked to tell me about how he was painting all of his dwarves and was quick to tell me that he was going to add red in soon.

After seeing his space marines (Which were spraypainted base and all a solid gold colour, then a roller brush dipped in blood red was used to paint the eyes), I was afraid of seeing red.

We also had another painter, he was fairly decent when I first started, but then he seemed to get worse and worse. He would constantly criticize our paint-jobs, pointing out every conceivable mistake and heckling us for said things.

If you happen to point out any of his, he will simply state that 'it adds character' and that it isn't truly a mistake. He also regularly cheats in his games, tells us about his rape fantasies and that he's always off his meds, and will rage HARD when he loses games.
