    Arrrgh!! 11 minatures, 14 hours! How would you fare?

    Damn tournament is tomorrow, and here I am with 11 things left to paint, and 14 hours in which to do it.

    There will be some time sacrificed for sleep, so drop that to about 6 hours.

    ARRGH!!

    8 servitors, 1 techpriest, and two heavy weapon teams.

    Guess I'd better get painting!


    As an aside, well, actually the real reason as to why i'm posting this procrastinating time-waster thread, I'm kinda curious as to how other people out there have fared in similar situations?

    Whats the worst/most amount of painting you have had to do in how much time before a deadline, eg tournament, and how did you fare?

    I've found that I personally work best under such pressure, yet there is only so much time. Only so much time!!!

    (And if such a thread as this has been posted before, please forgive me: i'm just looking for a way to waste time!)

    I painted a Necron army in about 15 hours. A whole army deal plus an extra box of warriors. They're in the gallery, too, so you can check the quality. It was necrons though and they're pretty easy.

    If I'm pushed I can usually paint 1 figure per hour, less for similar figures, more variation.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!

    Have you tried speed painting?

    Painting one colour to all models then the highlights to that colour to all models and so on... You sacrifice a little quality for time! But after the tourny you can get back to those models and give them the more attention you want!

    I had painted a force of about 1000 pts in 3 days for a tourny this way! Then, after the tourny, I got back to that force and got into detailing and all!

    This almost feels like cheating, but why don't you just not finish painting all the details a such, just paint enough of your scheme onto the models to meet the tournament requirements (i.e. "two colours" or whatever) and then finish them after the tournament.

    My friend once white primer/pink poka-dotted his Leman Russ. (it was red, but he did one watered down drop on the white primer so it came out pink) That was good times.

    If you've got 14 straight hours, with no interruptions, then I'd say piece of cake!
    Otherwise, hard.

    Anyway, good luck!

    Good luck man, heaven knows I can't paint a model without getting distracted, coming back, deciding to get a snack, bathroom break, get distracted again, another snack, and the say "screw it, I'll finish tomorrow".

    Have fun

    lets see, I painted up a whole unit of wildriders/ 10 eternal guard on the day before the tourny....I was painting from 40pm. to 100 in the morning, with a 4-5 hour nap in between. they actually came out alright, but after i finished the battles, i broke out the paintbrush and fixed them up....(the super fine highlights, blending etc.)

    Aether-Moose I do that too... sometimes not all! It is kind of distracting to have other people in the appartment! But I can't get separated by my fiance for the minis :cry: !!!

    This is why I dip my models in Minwax. No shading or highlighting required. Just paint, dip, done.
    If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
