I still run into trouble when I forget that what looks great in reality – chocolate-brown glossy chitin on slender insectoid legs, f'rinstance – just looks like shiny mud on a figure.
Contrast, contrast, contrast…

POLL DESCRIPTION

quidveritas Inactive Member wonders...

Most if not all of us have painted wargame figures, wargame terrain, and other wargame-related stuff that, frankly, looked awful when it was finished. (I don't want to hear about painting your garage, underpass, or pets here.)

What was it that caused this particular item or unit to look so bad?
