Getting heaps of painting done - and are turning out great.
Getting some painting done - turning out pretty well.
Getting a small amout of painting done - turning out ok
Getting barely any time for painting - turning out poor.
Little to none time for painting - models turning out poorly.
They'lle be lucky if they reach the painting table.
Basically at the moment Im barely getting any painting done. But with the school holidays coming up things should turn around.
For me I usually lose enthusiasm when things start to go bad and models start to turn out the wrong way.
So I was wondering about what you get done [just answer the poll].
For me Im getting 1 model a week done, but lately with my Spearmen things have done ugly. I accidently filed away ones shoulderpad and another has 2 curved file holes in his arm guard.
I have some 40 Bretonnian knights to work on, I am just working on the steeds at the moment and am trying to get the bases done (dipping in brown paint mixed with black and a lot of water), then I am going to work on the leathers, the pastels (I have the darkest coats for my dark and middle coloured models), the metals, and the horses themselves. Then I am going to work on the second coatings hopefully next week, then third, then I am going to do some washes, and then a couple sets of highlights.
Gotta love that mass production.

I am a quite slow painter (and I am more a painter than a gamer).
I usually paint one-two hours a day, I don't like to rush my paintjobs and I tend to work carefully.
Moreover, I usually don't paint anything from Friday to Sunday.
I usually don't lose enthusiasm... but sometimes I slow down more than a little when I am bored of a project.
The overall results are quite good IMO, but I don't push my skills to the limit in order to paint models in a reasonable amount of time (I usually save the more time-consuming techniques for showcase models).
I usually manage to paint a unit/large vehicle each month.
I painted 3500 points of Saim-Hann Eldar in (more or less) two years.
I was going strong for a long time and painted about 50 marines in a few weeks.
Now after the change in the hour for Daylight Savings Time, my son goes to bed very late so there is no time to paint.
In the last 3 or 4 weeks I've managed to sit down to paint once, and only got a little bit done
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
I too have problems trying to find time to paint between working, taking care of kids, and getting ready to go to school. Eventually I will get some painting done I have about 20 tactical marines, a rhino, command squad, Marneus and honor guard, 5 scouts and 10 assault marines so I need to get on the ball!
i did not vote as there was no option that fit. I paint when i feel like it or when i have a bit of free time, itake my time to make things look good (for me). I am usually pleased with my results, if not they take a bath and i start over again.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
Always a challenge for me. If I'm lucky (not always the case) I get three one-hour sessions a week (just before I sit down to write for the evening), and a session or two on the weekends.
But that's ideal. Often I get much less. Makes me mad sometimes at how painfully slow the progress is.
I find it really hard to get me some painting time; I have a few reports due every friday, and it's quite annoying. When I do paint, however, I spend a lot of time on the mini, so I would say that they turn out pretty good ^^.
