Hi!

I dont like painting much, and the one true effort I made long ago where I painted an average of 8 hours a day for about 6 months came up with all the painted stuff in the article on epic40k.com. That broke me, I could never again paint for any prolonged time. I can paint perhaps an couple of days straight, for one or two hours tops.

Thats why I rather pay for it now, I just dont have the morale fiber to paint anymore. :{

Hi!

Well, I envy people like Paul, Jimbo and others who really enjoy painting and converting stuff, I wish I could too. For me the enjoyment is the game and minis themselves, but painting....


...ugh! :p

I just starting doing some conversions myself. I find it really fun. My wife thinks I am insane to modify something so small. I do like painting. It is just the mass painting I have to do is the turnoff.

Hi!

Well, thats one ability more than I have. I've never attempted converting and have very little motivation to do so. I do enjoy other peoples work though, thats one of the main reasons I visit Jimbo's site, cool stuff there.

I don't know about you guys, but while I don't like the process of painting itself (let's face it, it's tedious to paint Epic infantry), I like the results and the experimentation.

For people that aren't born painters, I recommend learning the easy tricks of the painting impaired like washes and inks. They can make even the sloppiest painter's work look good (witness mine!). I save more adavanced techniques like shadows and blending for larger pieces and important vehicles.

I really do like the conversion end of things though. It's really fun to make unique models and plan out a conversion that noone else has done before. It's even cooler when someone else likes one of my conversions enough to do it themselves.

I really like building terrain too, The customization part makes each piece unique.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

I'm with Max (again ?:) ?) on this one. ?I like painting, converting & building small terrain projects (I use GEO-Hex and the like, for the bigger stuff). I'm more into quality then quantity. ?"Quality" being in the eyes of the beholder ?:laugh: !!! ?Hence my production rate is positively "medieval" :o ...

Oh, I am a terrain fiend. Some of you know that I have tried to peddle my wares.  :p Terrain is a process I love.

Of all the modelling aspects, building terrain is my least favourite.  I have yet to build something I'm proud of.

I enjoy painting (shock) but I am pretty slow at it.  I like to take my time, and paint everything to a high standard (if possible  :p   ) but it means that my armies take a while to become fully painted.  Even worse, I hate using unpainted minis, and try not to if possible.  Even at the expense of using crapper units.  And if I do use unpainted minis, they are always the first to die :D

Do you send them in first or do they just have a low moral because of their status. :p  Anyway, terrain is my first love. Hell, I'll make you terrain if you want. I am a terrain junky. It's my wifes idea for me to sell the stuff. Although, I have given away way more than I have sold. I dig painting troops but, not by the thousands. Which I now have to do.

Well with my soon to be large Ork Horde, I'm glad I have a spray can of Dark Angels green.  It should make it a little easier.

For terrain, I have a habit of buying it.  Although I have took home from work a lot of materials.  I plan on spending a weekend making nothing but terrain.
