Heya. Well, I'm guessing you should bring a good day's worth of models to paint, as you'll probably be there several hours just painting and hanging around with other hobbyists, and you don't want to take all of your models to a painting lesson to find out you can't paint them all in a day. 'Bout 5-6 models is around average in a devoted afternoon. Bring the paints you want your models to have on them, and your own brush. Napkins, and water are things that the store will provide for you, as it'd be a pretty weird place that didn't have water, and expected you to bring a big fat cup of it with you in the car.

Painting lessons are awesome, as they allow you to meet up with fellow hobbyists in your area, talk about the games you play, paint together, and you'll get tips from guys that have been painting models for a long time, and know just how to get all of the right colour tints.

Have fun!

Usually better to assemble, then paint. Painting first doesn't really give as much quality to the models, as you have to hold the bare pieces when painting and that can smudge details and thin the paint. And if you use a tactic like one-side drying (where you paint one side at a time so that your fingers don't mess up any wet paint), it takes too long. So glue them together and base 'em. Saves time, and in my opinion comes out much better, as you're touching the base when painting.

Plus, even if you don't get all of your models painted, they'll be assembled, which allows you to still play games with them.

don't say that!

Your not annoying. Where here to answer questions. You'd be annoying if you spammed

Now back to the topic at hand.

I would still glue the arms together. If your having trouble painting the chest, then theres a gun inthe way! And nobodies going to look at the model in such minute detail.

Still glue it on. It's much easier to paint, as arms are usually very small, and would be a pain if not stationed on the model's torso. And don't worry about not being able to paint the chest, if there's a gun in the way, then there's a gun in the way. No one'll see the chest.

Hey man, it's really no problem. This website is dedicated not only to hobbyists for them to communicate, and talk about their experiences with Warhammer 40,000, but to help those that need it. If you've got a question, it'd be our pleasure to answer it for you.

I don't have much else to add here. I prefer to glue my models together before painting for mental reasons as well - this may sound weird, but it gives me an inspiration when seeing the whole model glued together, an inspiration to try my best to paint it nicely...and it works (at least, for me)
The only others things I would add have already been said, and I won't bother repeating them

Happy painting!

Another good reason to glue before painting is because you may smudge gluue onto the mini, ruining the paint.

And if you prime them before gluing the pieces don't stick together as good.
