Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, how do you paint your models? Do you paint one model at a time, or one color at a time for the entire unit you are painting? I cannot rally think of any other ways of painting them so I'll throw up the option of neither. For me, I paint 1 color at a time for the entire unit. I'll dry brush genestealers mecherite red then accent their chitin and teeth with hawk turquoise and bleached bone. So, how do you paint your models?

When in doubt, use more genestealers!
One colour at a time for the whole unit, true production line style.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
I couldn't see myself doing all of one model at a time for a whole squad without going crazy. I'd like to hear if anyone does this and how it came about.
Did i mention a single model takes me 6-8 hours(depending on the detailing)plus a couple for the touch ups?
Yeah you can kill me now.
EDIT:The only models i did en mass where the deathwing terminators since i used a brand bone white sprayer for the base colour.But the detailing came individually again.

This question is very interesting for me. It really depends what I'm doing. When I do my own personal stuff, I usually divide the units in half, and do the same color on the halves. That way I can balance speed and quality. However, I play CSM, so my units are no bigger than ten, ever.
However, when it comes to ICs, like Deamon Princes or characters, I do all of it at one time, in one sitting.
I also paint my commissions like that. One model at a time; insuring maximum quality and "WOW" factor. So it really depends. I have used a ton of different methods, and find that these help make my painting more enjoyable, and yields better results.
Don't I owe you a tutorial?
I try to do mine in batches, depending on how much time I have. So if I know I have four days, I'll work on two or three models production style (one colour at a time). Even when I do IC's or other large focus models, I try to do the main colours along with others. Ie: I'll prime my HQ at the same time I prime a 10-man squad, same with basing. I also try to have about three different phases going on at once. So while I'm waiting for a primer to dry on one batch, for example, I might go over and apply a wash to a separate batch. I generally won't do batches of more than five of any one thing, though, as it starts getting too repetitive.
Plus dont i owe you some pics?
Klajorne, i am not a golden deamon painter really but i get some results.I would describe my painting as 'above tabletop quality'.
Compared to things i have seen here and there that is.But by no means its awestruck.
Anyways,the fact that i dont want to see imperfections combined with my shaky hands drives me crazy to the point were i stand staring the miniature to find the slightest spot.
But thats just my character,you cant take a quirk and apply it as a general rule really.
EDIT:At least there are four of us out there.

Yeah, I paint one model at a time...and I am mad...
It produces really good looking models, but at the expense of not sleeping the week before a tournament.
