So for painting methods, do you do the assembly line style? I'm very prone to going through the tedious process of painting them one color at a time. Note, this is faster, but also mundane when you pick out all of one color on a set of troops and then move onto the next color.
well, yes and no. since I'm using the sons of malice paint scheme I have to start with the white coat of base paint, then set up the black arm, half of the chest, and leg, and then going for the gold trim. but I when it comes to the gold part I'm hardly mechanistic about it. I tend to notice something and try to fix it. maybe I am and maybe I'm not.
I still have 6 unpainted marines, since I'm giving them bolters and a meltagun I'm trying to get the empty arm that holds the gun on their torso first. I hate painting these guys with lots of obstructions in the way (that huge melta gun carried over the chest would be a bitch)
