    Painting 10 figures a week seems pretty fast to me, since I average about… one. Ha.

    Anyway, glad to see you tearing into this project.

    • 10 a week is pretty fast for me. I’ve been slowly ramping up. BMG miniatures took a month each on average. Guild Ball was a week per miniature.

      I’ve been really paying attention to what is necessary. If you start with your darkest colour for the shadow do you need to apply 3 coats to make sure it is “smooth.” If you paint the entire section dark, then add your mid tone and then you highlight by the time you’ve reached the highlight you’re already up from black. I can do this faster than most people could put 2-3 coats of a mid tone, apply a wash, clean up the wash by re-applying the mid tone and then adding highlights, even if you don’t consider the drying time of a wash.

      I should probably write an article about it.

        Well you know I would read it. 😉

        And it certainly sounds faster, since you do not have to wait as long for paint to dry as for washes, giving you the possibility to really hammer some units out over a night.

        • The next batch I paint will be the core of the article. Either a bunch of WWII Canadians with a super easy uniform, or some 1812 Brits with an only slightly more complicated outfit.

Even a short comment makes my day.
