I am geek, hear me roar

This weekend my love for shiny objects got the better of me and as I'd been considering, I took the plunge and bought miniatures, paints, brushes, and primer. Shiny figures!! Pretty colors!! Insert squeeing fangirliness here.

The only problem? My characters may have a high Dex, but I do not. I trip over my own feet on a regular basis. What made me think I could successfully paint tiny little details on tiny little pewter figurines without constantly getting paint where it's not supposed to go? Your guess is as good as mine. At least the figures I've been practicing on are smaller than the ones I really want to do a nice job on. I know, I know, gotta walk before you can run, but no one ever accused me of being patient...

Any more tips, or can people recommend some good painting guides (preferably online)?
