With the clock ticking down to Historicon, I'm still working on figures to finish off a non-medieval army to use in the Doubles. I'm part way through the huge pile of Germans & Gauls and have just started to consider changing my mind and wrapping up enough Romans to go with them instead.
Part of it is that the Romans will be easier to paint, and that I won't get to all the little details on the "barbarians" like patterns on the clothing, shield designs, etc.
The other half if it is something I bitched about on Warseer -- just to let off some steam because I was so pissed. I recently switched to Armory primer. All went well for the first two cans, then part way into the third can I get the wookie fur coated army. The worst were some figures I'm doing on commission, which were immediately stripped.
However, many of my Germans & Gauls got a lesser degree of "fuzzy primer." I thought I would just live with it, but as I'm painting them it's really bugging me. However, stripping, reassembling (as required), repriming andrebasing a good 70 figures will just be time consuming and annoy me further. It's days later and I'm still serously on fire over this.
So tonight I have some time for painting. I need to decide whether to continue or make the switch. :/
