I'm one of those guys for which painting minis is a huge obstacle to getting into miniature wargaming. I'd tried 40K in the past, and was just overwhelmed. One of the things that I like about Warmachine/Hordes is that you don't have to have dozens of models to play. But I'm still having a heck of a time getting over the painting hump.
I know that it takes practice, and I know that I can't expect my results to look like the professional work shown in the books. But every time I sit down to paint, I have such a hard time just trying to get paint into hard-to-reach places (like under arms or between legs), or painting "inside the lines" without accidentally painting over another color, that I have to just walk away before I chuck a heavy jack through a wall.
So, I'm wondering, has anyone out there been where I am, and if so, how did you get past that stage? I really want to play the game, but I want my minis to at least look decent. I don't want to cop out and use unpainted, or single-color figures.
