Welcome to Librarium Online!
hello i was yust painting and after i painted my 15gount i was like ... dam this gets old fast.
So wat do you guys do when painting and its geting stail i want every 1 of my moddels to look good so i stop when i lose the the fealing to paint wat do you guys do to keep spirits up?
I usually focus on getting the unit in a playable state and focus on quality later. It gives you a chance to test out strats and make changes if needed.
Playable for me means: basecoated with the first coats of paint down.
This lets you get in the game faster rather than stressing over how stuff looks.
Another thing I do is set micro goals. Do smaller batches at a time so you feel a sense of accomplishment. Doing too much at once gets old and feels a lot more like work.
Well, for things like my 100's of annoying gaunts or my ork boyz, I throw on a disc of my favourite tv shows, namely the office for me. I'll paint semi-casually for as long as there are episodes, so like 2.5 hours, and its not as tedious because the episode is like a familiar background noise. Also when your eyes are strained or you wanna rest your hand you can just watch for a couple minutes.
A movie I find isnt as good cuz it has a consistent 2 hours story, with 30 minute episodes it keeps things fresh. Then take a break and throw on another disc. Just make sure you love what you put on.... so the show AND the painting dont get old.
Its always worked for me, and in the end you actually have alot of models done, or at least notable progress.
Thats how I do it, good luck!
Hey, that's exactly what I do!
Ah, the precious hours watching Scrubs seasons 1-7 over and over while working on my Orkses and Tyranids...
my solution: music. When things get though, you can just drift away on the music for a bit, and get going again!
And I also have quite a simple painting scheme to begin with. Learn to use drybrushing to your advantace (or washing for that matter), and you'll see it goes a lot faster! And keeping your batches small keeps for enough diversity. Most of the time, this means finishing 8 gaunts totally, and then start with 8 new unpainted ones.

i want all my models to look awsome i'll post hou i painted them later (with pictures) but i have a short atension span so i'm like ooooo shiny .... and i wacht television so i yusaly paint 3 models go play some pc game and at some point ..o ye i was painting and go back 2 painting ..not very fast do liek 6-8 moddles a day... i have like 130+ models in my 1500 game list need 2 do 101 more models
haha i'll be done by whne it is the yeal 40000
yeah exactly, i just go through back to back entire seasons of whatever tv series i can find. usually comedy - or sci fi to go with the 40k sci fi stuff.
but i usually i find i get so bored of painting the same model over and over. and just do one model from one unit, and one from another, then maybe i'll do a model from another army i have. so its not like 80 gaunts in a row.
also that way all of my armies get painted at the same rate. instead of having one fully painted army and then one that is completely grey plastics.
Try to paint your models in moderation as lots of people decide to paint all sixty of their Guants and Hormagaunts at once and lose the will to paint/live. Paint some Gaunts and then paint a larger model or a more interesting brood. I find I like to paint a brood of Gaunts and then move on to something like broods of Tyranid warriors or Genestealers. Then I can paint a Hive tyrant or a Carnifex. By spacing out your models the Gaunts will seem to be fresh. Also things like the Carnifexes will be more of a fun thing to do as you won't finish one big critter and instantly have to start another. Ther are also things like Lictors, Zoanthropes and Biovores. These models can be done one at a time between whatever broods you like, this adds more variety.
I like playing dvd movies but having the commentary tracks playing while I paint. That way I can listen to them talk about the film (yeah, I'm a movie nerd, shoot me) and I don't get distracted by what's on the screen.
