One of the greates satisfactions in painting lately was walking past a beautiful girl one day on the way home from work, finding a mini that was dressed like her, and copying her look.
That may be the best definition of a wargamer geek that I have ever heard!
Well heavily dependant on taste, isn't it?
The short answer is: Shop around. Look at sites like coolminiornot, or one of the excellent painter blogs out there; find inspiration, and make some grey boring metal beautiful!
I entirely agree. Not only is it heavily dependant on taste, but also my current mood, which is one reason why I am monumentally bad at actually finishing anything. I also find it really difficult to paint anything for fun. I am a very slow (and bad) painter, and I do feel that time spent painting something that isn't going to be used in an army is a 'waste', as I am primarily a gamer. But, of course, that makes it more difficult to enjoy and finish anything.
Right now, I am leaning towards the Eldar Phantom, the Tau Barracudas, and the FW Warhounds for Epic. Since the Phantom is probably the lowest on the list (and most expensive!) I think that a small FW order is on the cards!
