Hi gang. I always have trouble with finishing minis if they take too long. Groups of minis are a frequent struggle for me. What kind of advice do you have to avoid burnout? I try to mix things up to stave off the exhaustion and tedium. I typically switch off between working on groups of minis, to just doing one at a time. Small minis to big minis. Detailed minis to simple minis. I'll even avoid things that are the same color back-to-back. Anything to help avoid getting sick of painting. But I have a harder time just getting through a group of minis. I'll try breaking them into sub groups, or just focusing on painting everything of the same color like all of the wood, or all the leather. Maybe I'm just tired in general, but I'm definitely feeling worn down on my current set, which is a shame because I am excited to see them finished. What advice do you have? How do you avoid burnout? How do you get yourself to just keep painting?
This was (part 1)of a major commission order that I did in August of last year from a gamer back East who is part of a gaming club who plays (WAR ZONE). He sent me a box that contained the units (each in a clear plastic kitchen bag). The instructions that I received were (please paint the pieces so they look nice on a game board but not to contest quality...please mount them on standard square bases with simple grass ground cover...please give them a flat finish coating so they can stand up to being handled)...The rest he left up to me and the above photos show the finished units that I sent back to him. He was very pleased with the results and I had fun painting these marines. 1. His scout character in their games (front & back) 2. Five (5) figure unit (skull & bones) 3.
