A Matter of Opinion: To Thin, or Not to Thin Your Paints

After some emails I've received, it appears that the following statement from my last article wasn't exactly agreed on...even if all the comments say otherwise.

"What I won't be debating is whether or not we should be thinning our paints. This is already widely accepted as a need."

Seems some folks really did want me to debate the virtues of thinning your paints, versus painting straight from the pot. Oookay, let's debate it!

A Matter of Opinion: How To Thin Paints

Considering my most recent experiments with painting the Tohaa figure from the Infinity range, I thought it appropriate to bring up a topic that has been debated in the past. Specifically, what to use when thinning out your paints.

I've heard many different options, from Flow Aid to dish soap, acrylic thinner to the official Lahmian Medium now put out by GW. I also don't want to forget the tried and true water option as well, though people differ on whether or not tap water is good enough, or is distilled water the way to go.

But what should we use? Does it even matter?

Infinity: Hatail Spec-Ops Finished!

Rather than braving the mad dash at the stores during pre-Black Friday sales, Grey Thursday (what else are you supposed to call stores starting Black Friday shopping at 6pm on Thursday?), and the hellish Black Friday cacophony of madness itself last week, I enjoyed some time at home with family, a paint brush and my hobby.

In other words, I finished the Hatail Spec-Ops figure!
