  1. new painter, starting on the Kick Off! Masons

    Ended my Masons with Marbles, so I figured I'd start the Brewers with Scum today. Will need a bit of touch up still.
  2. Is primer required and/or recommended on plastic figures

    Yes, acrylic paints won't cling to the plastic. The first few I primed with a spray can that had a bad cap, so I left a lot of gaps rather than end up with too thick of a primer coat. The difference between where the primer was and wasn't was extremely noticeable. I tried a general Krylon (not specifically for plastics) and then a Rust-Oleum (that was labeled as OK for plastics too). Both worked well when applied correctly. I've also heard that Krylon fusion paints that bond to plastics can be used as a spray primer and base coat, and that the ultra matte camouflage colors work well for that.
  3. Masons / Brewers reboxing?

    I'd like to see boxes with the other half of the lineups for these at least. Looks like some teams are getting those in September.

    Finished team shot, not the best focus. Even took them out to play last night.
  5. new painter, starting on the Kick Off! Masons

    I knew something wasn't right with the way the Krylon primer I had was spraying, but went ahead and did these three anyway. I just primed the rest of the team with a new can of Rust-Oleum, and they look so much better.

    Mallet and Flint. I miss Brick's big ham hands. Photos really show off the mistakes, but I think they'll look good on the table. Planing on finishing with dullcote, but I fear for the shiny.

    Thanks. What I have going for me is I'm good at following directions, and patient. So I watched a bunch of YouTube videos before feeling up to this, and then spent 3 nights just working on this one mini. Planning to keep going slow and see how thing progress with the rest of the bunch.
  8. I just finished painting my first mini, Brick from the Kick Off box. I'm pretty OK with it, I'll get to the base once I've got more of his teammates ready.
