I've just been given an old Warhammer miniature kit and decided to have a go at building it and painting it to see if I enjoy it.
I've been down to my local Games Workshop to get a couple of brushes and some paints - the guy was very helpful in terms of getting everything I'll need to assemble and paint it - I've got some black primer, two brushes (standard and fine detail) and half a dozen little Citadel paint pots (plus things like superglue and a pair of cutters to put it together in the first place).
He also gave me a small plastic archer model to practice painting on just in case it all went terribly wrong the first time I tried and said not to worry too much, because it's more about technique than anything. I've done that and it doesn't look too terrible, but I don't really know what kind of technique I'm aiming for.
I've looked around online to see if I can find anything to actually learn how I'm meant to go about painting the mini, but haven't really managed to find anything.
Does anyone have any advice for starting out painting minis?
Edit: To clarify, I don't actually intend to play tabletop wargames with the minis once they're painted; I'm more interested in learning how to paint them properly.
