From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
This is far in advance of my own painting output, but Midwinter Minis used their one-week painting competition time to paint the orks which had been laying around for a number of hears, assembled but not completed.
This turned out to be a lot.
A couple of things struck me about this video, and it dovetails in to the article series I’m still planning about my own approach to painting through the pile of shame.
There was a plan, and there was a schedule.
I often see these two things missing from other people’s grand ideas to paint through their collections – ideas that invariably fail to come off.
The early stages of planning in this example was to set a daily schedule of 7 hours painting, and then break that into stages over the 7 days. Undercoating, base colours, dip, clean up etc.
This reveals that 7 hours of painting, 7 days per week, would leave less than 20 minute per model on average. Even though the army painting scheme was already picked and practised, this was a stretch. This might do for a simple gretchin, but not for the more complicated models.
I’ll let you watch the video to see the outcome, but having plans is important, even if you change them later.
