I would like to know if i am a fast painter or not, it takes me about 10-15 minutes to paint an ork at above gaming standard
also it would be interessting to know how fast other people paint their models.
feedback would be much apreiciated thanks:yes:
anyone can be a fast painter it depends on the quality. if you really want feedback take some pics of your 10-15 minute minis for us
What you are we once were. What we are you will become!!!
do you have pics, or a link? i would like to see the quality of them. if you do paint fast, and didn't fake that the whole speed painting thing, you didn't just use a tank brush. did you use a tank brush!?!?!?!? JK
sorry guys im not sure how to put pics on a thread
you can see my space wolf scout on page 3 or 4 of the space marine gallery
no sorry its on page 2
LOL. You may be a fast painter but I'd slow down a little if I were you because that's not what I'd call 'above gaming standard'.
Safe as Clarts.
by gaming standards i mean at least 3 colours and no highlights
Ah, i see. I'm used to ebay with the 'pro-painted' models (which rarely are).Originally Posted by boltgunner
Those 2 space wolves look quite sloppy though & I'm sure if you slowed down a bit you still be able to paint thme wuick but to a higher standard.

Keep in mind the following; fast painters don't move quickly. They aren't like "The Flash" and move at superhuman speeds. Their hands don't move more quickly than yours or mine.
Rather, faster painters are simply more efficient painters. They don't waste time painting, they don't repaint things again and again, and they rarely totally mess something up to start again.
That being said, you should concentrate on becoming a better painter. Learn techniques that increase your efficiency, establish a routine that reduces errors and decreases the amount of "repainting" the same pieces over and over again. Speed will come with time.
Oh, and you probably may need to redefine "better than TT standard" if that wolf scout is any indication. It seems VERY TT standard to me. Of course, I will admit that at most of the gaming places I've been, TT standard is defined as 'mostly assembled with possibly some primer', but they are wrong, too.
Just my 2 cents

Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
As sad that space wolf is ok for gaming. I donâ€™t think you are extremely fast for that painting standard. Still I donâ€™t think I can paint like that in 10-15 min (I use 10-15 min for my base coat...)
I usually spend 8-10+ hours on my TT standard models and 15-30 hours on my characters.
