I'm happy with progress, very happy.

I will not be able to keep this pace, what with work and stuff, but it's a good start I think.

There is a bit about my new lighting for my painting station.

Hope you like, thanks for looking,

Not days that counts, but how many hours a day?
84. 28mm..
Great job. Look nice.
L' Empereur sera content de vous!

Each figure takes 30 – 40 minutes on average.

Very impressive.

I can see the dust of Spain rising in the horizon.

I'm amazed – that is the cleanest, most organized painting space I've ever seen!

Nice job on the figs ;-)

Lovely units! Any special trick or method that you feel enabled you to paint with that quality, that quickly?

Yes, very impressive indeed. I'm very envious of the speed you get them done…. well done!

Looks like 88 figures in 14 days, how'd ya manage that?

Thanks for the kind words.

Painting is what I do for a living. These were done at the end of a day's commercial work. So, it's practice I guess.

I don't know about that. I always feel it could be cleaner. To paint quickly, it helps to be a little organised with things at hand and clutter free. Using shoe box lids, for batches of figures in progress (so you can put them away in drawers when you are not working on them) is quite a good idea.

Great!

I am ashamed. My latest regiment is half done and only 12 months on the painting table. I ran into a painting block of monumental proportions.

Excellent work!
