Shaking these paints is a test of patience, it seems. And physical endurance. They require so much shaking due to the pigments settling easily. When I think I am done shaking, I realize I have to shake some more. And even then, a little bit more does not seem to be enough.
As a result, I've taken to more aggressive methods of shaking these paints. I think about how five Deathwing Terminators, under the leadership of my younger sister who wanted a try at commanding Space Marines, routed thirty angry cultists in two turns. I think about the 2+ armour saves where I rolled 1's. I think about The End Times, and how a lovely world I was just beginning to know about came to an end.
As I reflect on these things, and sense the frustration growing, I shake vigorously and thoroughly.
I have to find something I can use as an agitator for these paints. Glass beads or something of that sort would probably do, but where in this country do I find those?
