But I've made improvement! You wouldn't believe how long my very first squad- ten Chaos Warhounds- took me. I got more done on these goblins in one day than I did in a month with the warhounds. That's partially because since then I've learned what batch painting is (and why it's helpful). I did the 3 parts of the skin, the black leather, and the red cloth on these guys all with batch painting. Goes by faster, but can get a bit dull.

I also started my Barrow Wights and Bill the Pony. Bill, being a good guy, obviously isn't part of my army, but we had the blister of him and Sam laying around so I thought I'd work on them. I haven't actually painted a horse before, so he's been interesting. I painted him to match the coloration of the horse that played Bill in the movie- with the sock on his right rear leg and the blaze on his nose (fun fact- my college mascot is a horse named Blaze because of the term for color on their noses).
So far these figures have been fun to paint, but marathon painting them really burned me out on them for a little while. With all the other things sitting around primed on my painting table (more on that later) I should probably finish these guys up before I start anything new. But, you know how easily logical plans like that go right out the window.
