I have found that learning the techniques found all the different codex(s) sets a good base for you to learn upon. Eventually you develop your own technique or method that works for you.

I always buy more models than I have painted. I have trouble buying a box at a time and focusing on them from start to finish. I prefer to build and prime. Then when it comes to painting I will take a big group of units, mix paint to my liking, and do a base on multiple units and leave them be. Often it's sloppy but I know I will clean it up when I feel like adding the detail - and highlighting/ fancy base is always the very last thing on my mind save for special characters.

I like to go home, pour some whiskey, and have a surplus of units to pick from. I will grab one and work on that one for the night until it is done (minus highlighting and basework). There is just days you don't want to work on a small unit and days where you don't feel like painting pewter or bothering with a vehicle which is time consuming.

But at the end of it all - you have an army built, choices to choose from when you play, all are primed and most have base coat of your chapter's colors.

Chase, I'm getting back into painting for my FoW.  I'll make a deal with you, I'll come to Plainville sometime and you and I can work on this painting thing together.  I know I suck at it but misery loves company eh?
