How long do you take?
« on: June 05, 2019, 10:42:45 AM »
I was wondering how long it takes me to paint and base a figure. Obviously, I'm not going to sit down and paint them one at a time, so I timed myself painting a 34 man unit ECW regiment with a casualty marker.

Preparation, painting, washing, basing took me just shy of eleven minutes a man (or more scarily 6 hours 20 minutes for the unit).https://www.keepyourpowderdry.co.uk/2019/06/a-new-regiment-how-long-does-it-take.html

How long does it take you?

All told probably about the same - longer if cavalry. I canusually manage a half to three-quarters of an hour painting session. I try to get at least one in a day but donít always manage it. This lot took about 2 1/2 weeks:

Those are really nice Leman.

I think it came as a bit of a shock totting up how long they take in total. Don't really think of it when it's a bit here and a bit there.
