So to aid in the situation I have decided to challenge myself to getting at least one mini a day done.
How does it work:
Put aside at least 1 hour per day, usually you can squeeze in two if you can paint and watch TV.
At the end of each day you have to have at least one mini finished.
If you are batch painting squad miniatures, four half finished minis count as one fully finished mini.
Standard sized Vehicles count as one miniature. Super Heavies and large Miniatures count as two.
Clear finishes don't count towards the sum.
at the end of the month you should thus have finished one miniature per day plus a few extras on the days you get to put more time in.
Does it help? Yeah so far I have stuck to it every day this week, and I have deliberately chosen a month where time is difficult to grab.
