Lately, I've taken on the mantle of amateur painter for-hire. However, I've found that lately, I'm spending too much time on commissions, and I have had some trouble meeting my promised deadlines. Does anyone have tips for maintaining a high tabletop quality (as that's what I'm selling-- not display quality, but pretty much the same quality of my armies, which tend to win Best Painted at events) but producing the results in a relatively fast timeframe? My commissions have come in the form of horde armies, and it's hard to get all the guardsmen and orks and tyranids done to the appropriate standard in a reasonable time. An hour per model produces nearly acceptable results-- if I can get it down to an hour a model for a good standard, that's ideal. Any tips are appreciated on speeding up the process.
