Hot on the heels of Stahly’sfirst completed unit I’m happy to announce I’ve finished my first unit. Three of the models had already been painted previous to this Mega Painters Challenge so I just had to touch them up and base them again to match this fresh batch paint of six Necrons. I’m assembling an Annihilation Barge and an Overlord on foot at the moment. I will need halt work on the Necrons soon and work on my Great Eagles and Abaddon. Too many different projects on the go… does anyone else suffer like this?
I always seem to have a bunch of different stuff being painted at the same time. I'm on hiatus from my Necrons and Dark Angels. I'm now focusing on my Tyranids. I've stopped all commission painting to ensure I can get my own stuff painted by the end of 2013. 😉
I use to be a commission painter between 2002 and 2004 (before it was popular – seems like everyone is a commission painter nowadays). I hated painting for others, it completely detracted from my own hobby and sucked the fun out of painting. People wanted stuff painted a specific way to their specs so there was zero creativity. I don't know how these commission painters can stick at it. It wasn't for me.

To quote Martha: It's a good thing. Because army painting can burn you out you have to have a few projects on the go to keep you interested or reward yourself. It's no a problem – we can stop any time we want 😉
