A Preview of Doom

Well, I screwed up my Deathwing. Just when I thought I had done the most damage to them possible by free-hand painting the Deathwing broken swords with wings on their shoulders, I decided to varnish them.

Now, I live very near to Washington, D.C. and they had a big ice storm last night. I, in my infinite wisdom, did not check the humidity before applying a nice coat of Krylon Matte Finish to protect my "works of art" from the rigors of gameplay.
Now, to be fair to myself, I had gone back and highlighted all the sharpest edges on all the models before befouling them with my freehand chapter logos, so they had that much going for them.


Now every white bit on my Terminators has at least one little crinkeley (I cannot come up with a better word) bit on them. The tops of their armor, their arms, even the doors of my Drop Pods are all messed up.

Needless to say, I'm not pleased with this.

I know I owe you pictures of my Dark Eldar BFG fleet, but I think I'll start with this disaster. A whole army ruined in a few minutes. I'm so very disappointed with my carelessnes.

Now, I know I could strip them and start all over, but I just don't have it in me to start from square one.

Total bummer, man.

  1. Wow. That's a kick in the junk. Did you leave them outside after you sprayed them? I know it's been humid today, especially since the sun went down, but I've been spraying in everything short of a monsoon of late and it's been working fine. Of course I'm bringing the stuff inside and letting it dry in the bathroom, but I thought you did the same. I guess it's a learning opportunity, but a big price to pay for it.
