    The latest preview from C7:

    WFRP Preview

    Looks a lot like 2E with a lot of options for play preference.

    Darn. Sorry to hear that, UH. You do such fabulous work! I suppose I shall undertake the project myself then, and I will share it here if you’ll allow it.

    Sorry for your luck, Bremic. You definitely got some bad paint that must have been on the store shelf a very long time. Fortunately, you can paint right over it!

    I truly enjoy Descent. Great game. The dice mechanics are genius.

    However, if there was one thing I would change about it, it would be the way each scenario adds a multitude of strategic special rules that make the game more about achieving the objectives than a true fight-your-way-out dungeon crawl. In fact, I have considered writing up a new set of rules for that. A simplified version of D&D 4E, if you will.

    …This Star Wars game may actually quench my thirst. I shall, of course, be removing the shrink wrap from my copy as soon as I can get my hands on it.

    Don’t give up, Bremic!

    My guess is that your paints are a bit thin. What paint are you using? Acrylics are the best for miniatures, for several reasons. First, they can be thinned with just water (it’s a water based paint, unlike enamel.) Second, acrylics dry quickly so you can add layers without having to wait hours between. Finally, and most importantly for you, they stick to primed surfaces very nicely! Not all acrylics are created equal. I learned that the hard way.

    The way a paint behaves has several factors:

    1. Thinness (too thick and it gets “gloppy” and hides detail…too thin and it doesn’t cover well and runs into the cracks–like you are experiencing.)
    2. Fineness of the pigment (you need a finely ground pigment for minis)
    3. Concentration of the pigment (high concentration equals better coverage and opacity of the paint…less layers to get the color you want.)

    Brands that I think are good:
    Citadel – my favorite, but also the most expensive
    Vallejo – nice, but not as consistent in coverage and viscosity as Citadel

    I’m no expert by any means, but I hope that this helps.
