As I go through the RP blogs out there I’ve noticed one thing. Very few sites have anything at all to do with painting your miniatures. You’ll get the odd one or two but for anything decent you have to start frequenting wargaming websites for your hints and tips.
I’m no Picasso but over the years I’ve managed to produce a few half decent painted minis but I’m always wanting to go that step further and learn a little more. I very rarely use minis in my games though but with D&D 4e gaining more and more ground people who would never think of using minis in game are doing so.
So whats your thoughts on the current crop of minis out there. Is there a wide enough range so that there is something for everyone or do you shy away from them because there isn’t a big enough choice to stop players ending up with the same figures game after game?
If you buy unpainted minis to you care how well you paint them or are you happy to slap on a few colours and hope for the best?
It’s only a short one but I’m curious as to how other roleplayers feel about painting minis as I’m hopefully going to get some free time soon where I can get back into the art.
