How long does it take you to paint your armies or models.
I consider myself a slow painter, it usually takes me about 4-5 days just to get a couple of models down, but I usually only spend maybe an 1-2 hours painting at a time.
I think its very boring to paint many models, so I try to paint one each day and uses about 1-1,5 hour on a normal plastic mini

For me it takes about 2 to 3 hours on a basic Space marine. I am a perfectionist when it comes to detail. Even if you cant even see it! For vehicles it takes me about 7 to 8 hours but like most, I paint my miniatures in 2 hour sessions per day.
Well then I must be the slowest painter on this site then...
i have had an army for 1,5 years, it consists of around 40-50 models, I have just painted half of them... just recently...
It's all a matter what you feel like doing, painting isn't always very fun you know...
Depending on what race and size... Sometimes it varies.... a land raider took me about 4 hours, while a Eldar Guardian took me 2 hours in the beginning, and a orc from fantasy about 3 hours... IT's all about technique and how well u wanna paint it... just don't spoil them...
NB: In the beginning, b4 I found the sprays, I dopped them in the Chaos black color for a undercoat...
Depending how I feel depends how long I spend painting my latest space marine army takes me about 3hours per plastic mini but I spend about 15 - 20 hours on my metal mini just because I want my HQ and Elites to look realy nice
For me it depends very much on the mini.
I love painting and I think it should be done well.
If I have a tactical squad of ten marines I paint them all in one go using one colour at a time on all the minis.
It will take me about 8-9 hours to piant a squad of ten men.
As for my characters... I've got an Epistolary Librarian that took me 3 days to paint, using about 5 hours each day. He is also my coolest mini...
Still, I don't paint all the time.. I sometimes can go for a week without so much as looking at a paintbrush... On the other hand I sometimes paint every day of the week if I feel like it and have time.
It takes me about 5 hours for a basic marine, 3 hours for a tyranid gaunt. My marines paint up slowly because the color progression for the armor is 9 stages! I know, I'm nuts! :twisted:
Yeah sure you are! I mean it!.
For me it mostly depends on mood, right now I just found out that some old friends of mine still play 40k, so now I am starting to paint again....
The time it takes depends on how detailed I want to make them, maybe it takes around 2 hours to paint a marine...
Not really sure, depends on what mini it is. I can tell you I don't like to rush them though.
I also can't sit and paint a squad of 10 marines in one go, I get board of using the same old paints lol so after say three or four, I go and do a bike or just something different....or better still, I take a break for 20 minutes or so.
Sometimes I'll just spend an hour on my painting, other times, I can go a whole day o.O
