One can rarely get bored painting Eldar: it can provide a challenge. What with all the aspects, vehicles, characters etc-compared to painting space marines, its much more interesting.
For instance, Tyranids offer a pretty unique style of painting (and modeling) because they're completely organic, no armor plates, insignias or circuitry. Instead, you get to perfect the art of making dripping drool/poison, brains, guts and glands, and all sorts of biological freaky stuff.
Space Marines (and others) have tons of fluff and models, so there's endless possibilities - going way beyond painting legions of marines. Servitors, tanks, bionics, camo painting, worn-out tanks with rusted, battered armor plates, and of course, skin and eyes (which i find very hard).
Even Necrons, which don't have much diversity as far as army options go, have a lot to offer if you're looking for circuits, metallics, and wierd glowing effects, bringing metals to life in ways other races can't.
Orks have the whole rusted, ramshackle equipment thing going on, which is great for modelers, tank-builders, etc... I could keep going on, the point is that the most important thing is that you personally are interested in the whole feel of a certain army and going from there.
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts

Dire avengers sure are fun to paint.
Yeah. I really enjoyed painting my thirty Avengers.
Plus those forty guardians, great.
Love painting rank and file.
getting close to the standard seen on the box set covers at the moment.
Those mohawks are quite attractive.
What do you say about fire dragons: bright orange color scheme as in the codex, or a darker red color like the molten plates of the Avatar.
