    First thing, what colour scheme are you wanting to paint your SC box?

    Check for virsus before you link to this but should be fine

    Have you painted anything before? What paints do you have? What paints would you like to have? What is your budget? How good do you want it to look? Do you have any skills?

    Watch all of the videos put out by Duncan on Warhammer TV on YouTube, even if they're not relevant to what you're painting, you will always learn something.

    Also look around on here... many blogs from talented people, who were first time painters and are now quite excellent painters... also good for inspiration... feel free to ask how people did 'this and that' and how to achieve certain effects on the model...

    And don't be shy to post pictures of your models... it's quite helpful when people see what you've done and give tips what you can improve or how to proceed from where you are...

    @tom ndege blog is a good example, he came with no knowledge and now he can wield a brush and is not scared of experimenting which is a great asset to have in this hobby.

    What the guys said.
    If you learn the techniques (pure knowledge, not much skill required) you can get decent results pretty quickly. I only started painting in October (last year) and was shocked how quickly I could reach a level that I consider "OK". And even if you think you paint like crap: Don't be shy, post your pics and the community will try to give you tipps on how to improve. :)

    Drybrushing. The easiest way to get definition.

    This really is one of the best sites for getting constructive feedback on your models. People here are nice and will do their best to leave comments! Glad you're here by the way! :)
