Vet of the Psychic wars
You hit the nail on the head. I got all these gonzo big minis that never get painted because I feel I need to finish these hundreds of zombies from zombicide. Then I get burnt out painting the same damn think over and over all the time. This leads to not painting for months where I could've painted something I liked and enjoyed myself.Amen to that. At some stage I realised that the whole "paint a unit, reward yourself by painting a character" thing is fine if you're doing armies for a specific purpose, but when the painting is now the main part of the hobby in itself, it's just a waste of good painting time to not concentrate on the minis you want to paint most. Plus, I'm sure that like me you have hundreds of unpainted minis, so why not spend that precious time maximising your enjoyment?
That kooky looking griffin rider is really nice. Love all the cold blues, silvers and whites with the flashes of warm red and gold inbetween. Great colour choices.
Zombies from zombicide are going to get painted soon, they're my test minis for contrast paints before I paint some other stuff with them.
