I'm currently in the process of repainting 4000points worth of lizardmen models :eek: because of the horrible paint jobs and just not having a coherent colour scheme. For about 3 months now the project has been somewhat rejectedly been sitting on the shelf . I already have figured out colour schemes and whatnot but I have been wondering if there is an easy way doing this, or am I just insane for ever taking on such a task. I am currently siding on the fact I'm just insane, but please anyone tell me that I'm wrong and that there is an easy way it would be a nice releif, though that means i wouldn't get to go to the bouncey room . So yeah everyone please send me your tips or you can just call me insane and be done with it. :lol:
I would suggest painting a regiment at a time. Believe me I know how daunting of a task it can be to see a whole sea of figures that need to be painted. Breaking it down into smaller "bite" sized chunks can make it go much smoother. You can also alternate a regiment with another type so you aren't continuously painting the same thing. If that gets old throw in a single character figure.
Also painting them "assembly line" will speed things up. Paint like 10 at a time - painting the same parts on each... If you work out a formula - write it down. This will help make the whole army look the same or coherant.

I paint 5 or so of a regimental group, then reward myself by painting a conversion or a standout mini like a champion. I tend to convert 1 out of every 5 minis so this works out well...
This is kind of silly but this is how I do it. I have 1850 points of Space Marines (I know not near 4000 but bear with me.) that I didn't do a great job of painting a long time ago. I stripped all of the paint off, converted most of them and then based them with Chaos Black. Then I put them in three different boxes filled with shredded paper. Now when I have time to paint I reach into one of those boxes and pull out a hand full of figs and paint them and don't get out anymore until the ones I pulled out are done. It seems to work for me.

Well do you think it would be the same if i did like a chameleon skink, terradon or other such model instead of a conversion because i really dont convert many models, it is basically the same idea.I paint 5 or so of a regimental group, then reward myself by painting a conversion or a standout mini like a champion. I tend to convert 1 out of every 5 minis so this works out well...I like that idea, I dont think I ever would have thought of something like that. It would definately solve my problem of taking like 10-15 minutes to pick what I'm gonna paint when I sit down.Then I put them in three different boxes filled with shredded paper.
