Painting Tip - To help weather the storm
To some of you this might be something you already do, to others you may find it useless. However, maybe to a few more, this will help you out with your painting... Or lack of painting.
The following tip I use to help get me through squads.
Now, I know when I pick up a new unit, I am super pumped to get painting on them and get them on the table... However, by the final couple of guys, I am so loathed to even touch them, let alone finish painting them. So, I developed this little trick to help me get through squads.
First, I'll take the models and I'll paint something specific on them.. say all the straps. Then, I'll paint up one model completely. My next painting session, I'll paint up all the say weapons. Then, I'll paint another model completely. My next session I'll paint all the boots followed by a complete model. I'll keep doing this every session so that by the last couple , I've got most of the stuff done, IE straps, weapons, boots, etc etc so that the model is pretty much done and requires little effort. For me personally, this really helps getting those last few out, knowing that they are partially done and will take significantly less time. For me, I really hate doing hair, so when I first open the box, I make sure to get all the hair out of the way, etc etc.
Anyways, it may be old news but I hope it helps some people out with their painting.
