Recently been painting up Forest Dragon's Warmaster miniatures scaled to 15mm for custom scaled Frostgrave and Oathmark, and wanted to try out Army Painter's new 2.0 speedpaints, and I've been pleasantly surprised by the results! They dry a bit faster than I'd like, to the point of drying on-brush, but other than that, no complaints.
Still needs basing!

> This mollusc monster is a lot bigger than what I usually paint, and it took me forever to finish it. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Would love to hear what you think.
Hey, painters! I'm in a bit of a dilemma and could really use your advice. I've been thinking about getting into the miniature painting hobby, but I can't decide between the Gamemaster Character Paint Set and the Reaper Miniatures Learn to Paint Kit. My main goal is to explore this hobby and determine whether it's something I enjoy and want to continue investing my time and money in.
So I'm about to begin painting for the first time, but I'm not sure what colors to buy. I play Star Wars Legion so I'll be painting a bunch of stormtroopers, death troopers, and other very monocolor minis. Should I use black and white primers for them? Or do neutral grey and paint the colors?
Bonus points if anyone can tell me if wildspire minis are good for a first time project.

> I printed and painting this Roper and the rocks for DnD night with my buds.
> I was inspired by Conkers Bad Fur Day for the color scheme of the Roper.
> Image Description: Pictured is a group of 4 printed and painted cone shaped rocks with a cone shaped creature in the middle that's brown with one red eye and yellow teeth. The color scheme is inspired by a boss called the Great and Mighty Poo (a giant pile of poop) from Conkers Bad Fur Day.
Made a lot of mistakes such as magnetizing all arms and choosing a bone white colour scheme for the weapons which shows tiny errors immeadiately. All in all I like how they look from far away. Just don't pick up any for inspection.

So I'm getting ready to dive into the world of finally painting my Star Wars Legion minis. I'm planning on getting an Army Painter speedpaint 2.0 set to start. Should I also buy the wash set? I'm not sure if it would improve my results as a beginner, though I imagine I will want them if I keep up with painting. I'm intending to start by getting this Army Painter's stuff:
Speedpaint most wanted 2.0 set
Most wanted brush set
Matte white primer
Project paint Station
Okay, so this isn't painting, but I figured someone would know something about this. What kind of material us the Tamiya extra thin brush made of? I tried to use some cheap synthetic paint brushes with it, but they hardened and broke apart. Anyone have any luck finding a decent brush to use when applying extra thin for assembly?

I've painted a couple of figures over the past year or two but this is my first army having tried to get into it a lot more these past few weeks.
I did them all one by one going one colour at a time. Printed on my 3d printer, comments and suggestions are very welcome. I would love to get a lot better!
The other day I posted some goblins I made and painted, this weekend I painted the guards that I made for my upcoming campaign. The painting is getting a lot better and I am very proud of these ones.
