Default Whats the fastest you've painted a unit?

Exactly what the title says, whats the quickest you've painted a unit? Are you a generally fast painter, or do you take your time?

About an hour each Necron. I'm definitely a terribly slow painter but don't spend a lot of time on detail at all.

I could dry brush them boltgun in probably 5-10 minutes each but it's done too often so I went with a different approach.

Mephiston ... done him in one 8 hour setting, this was after I had him put together and primed. That was the fastest paint job I have ever done and I think he turned out rather nice.

a ten man Fire Warrior squad with pulse rifles in about 2 hours.

I'm a fast painter. Pretty sloppy though tbh.

Peace through superior firepower

Fastest I've ever painted a model? When I first started playing I just used a black primed army. Took me about 1 hour to paint and let dry 2000 points.

Now that I've added color and detail to my models it takes me a little longer.

Fastest? Well, considering that I started my Eldar army 3.5 years ago, and haven't actually finished painting any of it....

I take my time. I dont think I've ever completed a unit very fast at all just because I tend to switch from one type of model to the next or I feel too repetitive. Fastest was probably my first 5 assault marines.

You can never be prepared for the unexpected
