Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

I'd like some of these as well. I think 10 squads will work.

Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

Does anybody know how to make paint stick to these guys? I just can't see spending four or five times as much money on Dungeoncrawler miniatures for the red ants, if there's a way to repaint the black ones.

I suggest washing them with warm water and soap before painting. It helps to get rid of any paint-resistant oils that may be preventing your paint from sticking.

Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

To be clear, I'm not asking for general advice on properly cleaning miniatures before painting them. I am asking about the specific circumstances of the ants reportedly being of such a rubbery nature that they do not take paint in general.

Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

I have not tired to paint them yet...but if I have to...I'll but some spray pint to give them a coat first. Just a Bill, have you had an issue painting them yourself?

No, I have just read here in the forums that they are rubbery and not likely to take paint well. I thought it was in this thread, but maybe it was a different one.

Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

I just received an order of the Safari Glow in the Dark Good Luck Ants. I sprayed 2 sets of 4 with Krylon Fusion Spray Paint and it seems to be adhering quite well. I did 4 with a satin Terra Cotta and 4 with a satin Burgandy. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to put a wash on them tomorrow and post some pics.

Re: C3V Ant Sale!!

Repainted Glow-In-The-Dark Safari Good Luck Ants. Results should be similar with the Black Ants. I like the look of the Terracotta, but they don't necessarily look like red ants. The Burgundy are a little dark. I'm going to look for another shade of the Fusion paint.
