I Got some shiny gold paint and colored all the plated sections which really seems to add *a lot* of epic-ness to my little army that was missing before. Not sure how well that comes across because of my very red side table, but it at least puts my army back on par with Alex’s and the rest of everyone else’s.
I think I secretly feel the need to prove myself with my army, because I’m an artist and the majority of the paints I’m using are my own artist-grade paints that I’ve accumulated for my work. I feel like I need to really bring everything I have to the table with these and make them badass (and pink, which is remarkably difficult) and perfect which is hard for someone who’s not a perfectionist with things she does for herself.
I guess I want people to feel the same way about the paint job on my army as I do about theirs. I love them, and I think the amount of thought and artistry and work they put into it is amazing and their armies are just so interesting to look at. I want to feel that way about my army, and I want people to think that too. I think with the metal element I’m getting there, and I think by the time they’re all washed and sealed I’ll be pretty close.
