Getting Started: Starting Out with Colors

If you have been keeping up, you should now have or be ready to purchase brushes, a palette, and know which vendor(s) paints you want to go with. The next thing to find intimidating is the number of colors in that paint rack. Most manufacturers churn out 40, 50, 60 or more colors and picking which colors you want to get started at a few US dollars for each pot or dropper bottle can stretch your initial hobby funds pretty thin.

In this article, I will go over some strategies you can use in deciding what colors you want to pick up first as you start to put the finishing touches on your starting paint kit. It shouldn’t take a ton of colors to be able to get started with painting. Down the road, as you expand your collection of paints or perfect your abilities to mix the colors you need to help with your growing and continued painting hobby.

Episode 55: Firing Up the Hobby

Episode 55

In this episode, our hosts are joined by local Madison Warhammer new guy Eric the StoneMonk. In the main topic, the hosts explore getting motivated to work on hobby stuff. After all, this is the first step to actually getting models on the table and being played with! Several thoughts are discussed on how to change up what your doing to get that paint brush or hobby knife and glue going and get back to work on your models.

Also recapped is the WWHFB Tournament of Champions which was held at Pegasus games. This was a great, small and friendly tournament that has been done for the second time. Listen to see how the games went and who the winners were.
