PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

If you dont paint them I shal most definitly kill you.
*note, I will not do this.*
.........but its motovation though right?
Try to get by with quick paint styels. Say a flat color and then shading by inks, and then highlghts the way you like.
P.S. work on the spelling
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
Otherwise you may just end up with a big pile of unpainted and unwanted minis.
It's something i see at the local gaming club alot, people like to brag that they have 4 or 5 armies, but when questioned none are painted or only painted at best, lists are written on a bac of a fag packet and they have to borrow a codex for games.
It's not their fault really, people are just like that nowdays. But i find that if i stick to one army and only that army then i can get it done pretty quick and even a few hours per week will add up to a lovely looking army.
I AM BOOMER!
two things i do when i have a load of painting on my plate (like right now!)
Pick one model you really want to paint.. thats your reward.. thats the one you want to take your time over.. Do something 'mundane' and then treat yourself.
Set up the models into groups and batch paint them. Often I will have 3 or 4 various projects on the go at any one time.. I find that having different things to paint will allow me to not get frustrated..
Get a good workspace.. comfortable chair and some good tunes.. and then in the timeless words of Monty Python..
GET ON WITH IT!!
