    Good luck mate Smile

    I still got to finish my last 60-odd tyranid models and then i would have all 400 or so models fully painted Very Happy . At the moment though i'm trying to get some of my 300 eldar models painted up for the ladder, so we'll see when i can find the time to do it all lol.

    Unfortunately there is no quick easy solution in getting it done (besides getting a painting service to do it for you lol)

    Here's a little article to help you figure out ways to get motivated.

    http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Getting_Motivated_to_Paint

    I myself just turned on the tv and had that as my background noise. I find it very hard to do when there's total silence. But what i think helped me plough through the most was forcing myself into targets. When using the tyranids i would purposely include models/units that i normally wouldn't in order for me to have them painted for the following week. Granted the level of "detail" that i painted them in was a very basic table top standard, but it suited me just fine. Especially knowing the fact that i might actually have my entire army done, as opposed to wanting to paint it to a higher standard and never finding the motivation to do 400 models the same. Besides for me they look good enough to play with, but i certainly won't be taking them into any painting competitions haha.

    But anyway, i'm glad Steven that you've almost got your entire guard army fully painted. They're looking great and being a horde player myself (and owning enough eldar models to possibly even call them a horde army haha) know how difficult it is. Good job, can't wait to see a photo with all of them together Smile

    On a side note, i like how your photography is getting the club members back into painting. It's making the club look more awesome and professional. Although we might ask if some people won't mind doing the club some favours in painting a piece of scenery. If we all manage to do just one, we'll have all the tables fully done, but that is something we will discuss in more detail in the near future.

    would love to do some scenary mate no probs with that. Yep photography helps alot a visual is always good and looks so nice! about 3 years ago me and my friends would only play with painted models to have a initiative to paint has much as possible to field as much as possible has 3000pts of orks painted becoz of that! Smile

    it looks so much better to have painted models on the table it just looks nice and makes you want to play more.... on another note it hurts more when there killed hahah especially when it takes about 3 days to paint 10 guardemen and they all die like flys asa the match starts hahaha
