I painted some minis over the weekend. These have been wallowing in the "to-do" list for a while to get finished painted. These are by no means finished yet, but works in progress. And I don't profess to be an great mini painter either. There is a reason why have a prediliction to purchasing pre-painted plastic minis after all.
But, I'm willing to try my (unsteady) hand at it and I thoroughly respect those people who can paint their minis to look like works of art.
