Sometimes the best way to get things done is to just knuckle down and paint.
Today I have been mostly painting my Iron Warriors, because I just want to get the army finished.
I blitzed through all 6 Rhinos and 16 Chaos Marines, which is pretty good going. They're still a way from being finished because I chose to invest in Army Painter to get the army done quick and easy, but it doesn't really seem to be any faster.
I just need to paint the basic colours on 32 more Chaos Marines, 6 plastic Obliterator conversions and the Warsmith and they're ready for dipping, flocking and varnishing. Then I can chuck them all in a carry case and sell them when the new Chaos Legions Codex comes out.
But the point I'm trying to make is that the only way you will ever finish an army is by dedicating some time to it. That could be an hour an evening, a Sunday morning or even a whole weekend.
So get the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy DVD Boxed Set on the telly, sit down and paint those little plastic dudes. It's the only way they'll ever get done.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have the rest of my Iron Warriors to finish, a horde of Super Dungeon Explore Kobolds to paint, all the Super Dungeon Explore heroes, 2,000pts of High Elves still in their boxes...and of course, 4 Tau Empire Battle Forces.
It's a tough hobby, but somebody's gotta do it!

About Warhammer Tau
Warhammer Tau is a group of wargamers who feel that they have a little something different to offer other Tau Empire, Kroot, and allied players... even if it's just a starting point for discussion!
