Ok so I seriously need some help painting finecast.
Does anyone know any way to stop the paint simply flaking off the damn things after they have been painted for about a couple of hours?
Ive got an ogre tyrant and a wood elf spellweaver who I am still in the process of painting, ive only done the skin and armour for the tyrant and the spellweaver just needs some finishing off.
Unfortunately im having to retouch them constantly as im painting new parts because paint keeps flaking off the model after it has been standing still for a while, but ive kept them out of the sun and out of too much heat and there are several layers of paint on them, yet it still just comes off so im left with these annoying patches of white finecast showing through.
Yes I have undercoated them, ogre sprayed black, wood elf sprayed white, but this flaking is actually ruining my models, especially my spellweaver who was originally going to be one of the best models ive ever painted, (although that isnt saying much), and now looks like blobby **** because of all the paint I have to keep putting back on. The ogre's skin looks awful in places where ive had to constantly layer it on. I havn't even been using them in any games, nor have I been touching the models themselves, I pick them up by the base.
Obviously varnish is out of the question because they arent finished yet, besides gloss is too shiney and matt is too dull.
Anyone know any tips? Are GW's own paints just not good enough for their own finecast models?
