I read an old Dragon Magazine article, years ago, on 'assembly-line painting' techniques, as well as, 'Works In Progress', painting (paint what you want, when you want, but still push yourself to finish projects, when necessary, or near the finish line, to get them done…). I liked his ideas. I adopted them, using The Dip and Magic Wash techniques, as well. I average 10 minutes of painting, and shading, combined, per figure -- only 10 minutes of brush time, to completely paint a 25mm miniature. My figures look comparable to what I initially paid a professional to paint them like (wargaming standard). Even he, who had by then painted 10,000 miniatures, was impressed with what I achieved, in so little time.

I am an army painter. I like my painting. And I really like how many armies I have finished painting, thus far in my hobby. I have many more to paint, many terrain pieces to build, and finish. But I also have many more games to play, time before my death permitting. I passed the half-century mark, several years ago -- I am not getting any younger, nor am I getting any healthier. My clock is winding down, but until it stops, I will game on! Cheers!
