Its not easy being green.. dodgy ebay sellers and new paints

He came out ok i think...  
So there is a little bit of a story with this mini.

I bought this mini on ebay about 6 months ago.i was really excited about getting this guy and the price was amazing. under $5. Holy Shit!!!! well a few weeks later it arrived. oh happy happy joy joy!!

well on opening up the package i find a smashed mini cast from a crap cheep plastic.... rage kicked in!! after a few more weeks the seller was taken down and i felt a little better. i put the bag with smashed mini with my other unpainted stuff and forgot about it..

Time passes....

Last week i revived my first minitaire paints. i have wanted to get my hands on these paints for so long but never really had the cash to drop on them. well the wait is over!! i really wanted to get a full set but cant find any here in Australia so i ordered  what i could from my fav aussie online store and payed for express postage so i could get my hands on these badboys sooner! oh the greens,browns and earth tones. i lost my shit! i love these paints.

now to tie in the new paints and the piece of shit knock off and very broken mini.....

well once i got the new paints i needed something to pint to try these out on! cue the forgotten about renegade. he was in so many bits..   head off, arms in 2 to 3 bits, legs snapped.. i did what i could, basecoated him and went to town with the new paints. i started to really enjoy painting it. i couldn't stop. there were so many issues with the mini that i had to try and hide some and fix others but it just added to the fun and the look of the mini. Happy Happy Happy!

Thanks everyone
stay tuned for more updates!
