Ooooh, compliments  Tongue

Ehm, to be honest, I don't really know.  An hour or so here and there, and a few hours whilst pissing about online at night.  New baby has shifted painting regime about a bit.  Being off work helps too.

They weren't all painted in one go, but in 2 batches of 60.  I spray primed them, couple of washes on the skin, and then painted the bases, which was the worst part.  Then I went over the full unit, did all the scabs/cuts/guts, then picked out the bone, then eyes and hair.  Then I sorted them out into lines dependant on body and leg combo, and did each row with 1 of 3 colours (green, 2 browns), then washed them again, then did the grass.  Then finished with the gore.

Each stage probably took 1-2 hours, but that also included fag and coffee breaks, separating squabbling siblings, browsing the net.

Basically 60 done over a 4 day period.  Twice. 

Yeah, I got lucky getting my hands on the Abyssal Dwarfs, seemingly my army deal hasn't even shipped yet...
