That said, I have had 3 models which were a joy to paint. You know the ones, the ones that you get great enjoyment from as you paint it. You enjoy every colour application and you feel like you can do no wrong. There are no worries about colour palette, no worries on where should the shading go, and no concerns about that weird thing on his belt, or what colour should his loin cloth be to best define this as thing to not to mess with in battle. The polar opposite of these models are the mind numbing rank and file, not the "I will paint 10 of these and then allow myself to go paint something else" models. Or the "do I have to paint 36 red leather belts before I can get bite of that biscuit" type of models - yuk.
So 3 good ones and 23 rank and file for me. Which is good, as the model I am working on for next week is a complete b**** troll from hell (not rules wise sadly) and should have a painters frustration warning on the box. Anyway, back to the delight I call the Forgeworld Mournghul and 2 x Archai. ahhhhhhh just lovely.
