Priming the Riders

I stumbled across a fairly easy way to prime the Knights of Minas Tirith. Part of the problem with painting mount and rider separately is that you don't have an easy handle to hold the rider with when you paint it. I happened to have a package of cheap ball point pens lying around for another project (some are destined to become part of flying stands for my Eldar Wave Serpents), and it turns out that they are the perfect size to mount a Knight on. A little bit of double sided tape and they fit perfectly for priming. I'm not going to try to paint them this way, but it makes it a lot easier to prime. I do recommend wearing some disposable gloves if you don't want to spraypaint your hand though.
