Paint a squad at a time, or like colored groups at a time,

Look at what paints you use, less coats faster results (what I mean is higher pigment colors vs standard GW paint).

If you find yourself redoing certain pieces alot, maybe they should be painted last if possible.

Invest in a cheap airbrush for basing non standard colors, if you do enough of this it will pay off for itself (180ish with compressor for a good one for what we use)

Or simply always give yourself extra time, if they want you to paint it for them an extra few days will not matter, I would rather have you tell me 2 weeks and I get them back in 10 days then you telling me a week and get them back in 10 days.

With a 1 needle you can detail decently. I can pull up the exact specs but once you practice you can do some neat things with a fine tip. If you want to go all out and get the equivilant of a 0/30 brush the airbrush will cost you 450ish. With a 1 needle and practice you could probably do plates easy enough once you figure out paint consistancy.

Also one things that can help you out is if you can keep the arms off of models like SMs or simular items off of the other model ranges, it allows you to get chest details ect much easier also speeding your paining up. Get some blue tack poster tack, it is like GS but does not harden to cover up the glue points on the model so you keep that bare plastic for when it is ready to finally glue the arms and weapons on.
