This is false. Everyone knows that painted minis fight harder on the table top. (Exception: during the first battle a newly painted model or unit will always perform badly.) It's also a known fact that if you finish painting all of your minis you'll die.

Painting your miniatures doesn’t make you a flufffag, and painting the overpriced plastic you buy doesn’t validate your purchase.

Back to the main point however people have different skill levels at different tasks.

I have been TOO productive. I actually have some packages on the way just to rebuild a small but varied backlog. Samurai from Bushido, a vampire counts starter and some Pathfinder druids.

It's a legitimately weird feeling. Until 3 years ago I'd paint 2 models a YEAR and hate it. Then I started hating the game and loving the brush, almost overnight.

Sounds like you need a 3d printer. You'll never run out of models to print again.

I have been thinking about an elegoo mars desu, considering all the good coverage from channels like goobertown, and it's not that expensive. I'm just worried as I don't have much space and I'm a bit of a luddite. I heard you need to fuck around aligning struts and stuff. I just want a 100% retard-proof process where I pour resin, press a button and after a few hours I'll have a perfect mini to paint.

It's real tempting for all the unique models you can think of, and there's a lot of cool designs you just can't buy due to IP laws. You can't officially buy like... Vagrant Story minis f.ex but if you have the ZBrush skill and a good printer, world's your oyster.

you're right. and in order to fix this issue i believe that some type of Style Points system should become integral to the game

You know what I don't get about greytide-fags? Why would they pay money for unpainted models when you can get tabletop simulator for $20?
>The virtual models are painted
>It's far cheaper
>They still play the game that they exclusively care about.

If greytiders only care about the game why do they not only pay for just the game? Why blow money on personalized stuff you aren't going to personalize? It's almost like they want to exclusively go to somewhere to ruin their opponent's gaming time. It's not enough to be lazy, you have to make others suffer for your laziness.

You know what would really piss them off? Hire a competitor. Because a sample size of one is not even a pattern , much less the average.
