    Finding time for Painting!

    Hey Guys.

    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.


    Help my dragon grow! pfft dont bother anymore he died since he didnt get enough clicks >:(

    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 hardly ever get any time for painting but when I do, I tend to set aside enough time to do models in batches. I would rather paint very few models well than many models not so well.

    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

    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'm not sure of the options in this poll.
    I get hardly any time to paint or build stuff, (working 12 hour days +family time) but the little I manage to paint turn out rather good I'd say. So, a few hours a week and a good result.
    Oh, back to work with me now!

    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 ^^.
