No worries, Dead. ::slapping the TV set to get it to tune in to the right channel:: ha ha...

On the note of the Armorcast stuff--I didn't get to paint up my church pews in time for the game that I just ran this past Saturday. Major bummer. I had this evil temple in a sub-terranean environment that I needed the pews for. I had to make do with some tavern benches instead. I'll try to post some pics later this week of the table setup!

I have only mannaged to get 3 of my 8 pews painted, but i got all of my other crypt stuff done.... and After er... 6 months i finally started painting some Void figures. Got about 6 of the 18 or so done... Gosh i hate painting, i wasted loads of time getting these painted up.

Huhm... now i am wondering where those other 2 pews went...

How difficult are those church pews to paint? They look fairly straight-forward, as it seems that one color should suffice. However, I really haven't tried painting any of these mini accessories, so I'm wondering what I might be getting myself into if I pick up a set.

oh they aren't hard, i'm doing two colors, a grey for stone, and brown for leather seats. It's just i hate painting, and find it a chore so it takes me a long time. And i didn't get all of them primed at once, (too many things to prime, all those Daleks :) )

zoonat, as with most hobby enthusiasts, it's not how long it takes to paint the 1-single piece, it's the pile of unpainted projects blocking up the workbench that you have to contend with before you can get to that newest, best thing in the world that you just have to paint! ;-}~

The pews in and of themselves are not difficult to paint. They do need a bit of cleaning up however. There are some pieces of flash (spare resin) that need to be cut off or filed down. Then they should be cleaned in mild soapy water to remove any traces of mold release left on in the casting process.

After they've thoroughly dried, hit them with some primer (white or black, or even gray--whatever your preference is).

Since I like to give my wood bits a nice, rustic red oak look, I use a leather type color for the base. After a few coats of that (apply thin coats--not thick coats), I do a wash of Chestnut ink (GW) or a wash of Terracotta (GW). Depending on how the piece looks once it's dry, I may do another wash or two.

After the washes are dry, I do a dark wash using Scorched Earth (can't remember if that's the correct name or not) GW paint, or a dark wash using Vallejo Smoke.

Spray it with a matte sealer (dull coat) after everything is THOROUGHLY dry and that's it.
