Tales of victory and achievement from local miniature hero Marc. It’s like Thomas, the Little Engine that Could; but it’s Marc, the painter that did.
I often preach the one hour a day method of painting, the steady but surely approach to painting.
A lot of the time, this gets brushed off as ” You do this for a living” / ” You don’t have a real job ” / ” Yeah if I had your [generic excuse #21413] I would too “. As if consistency was reserved for a select few.
Today I am pleased to present Marc’s Death Guard, because they perfectly embody what you can achieve with dedication and regular painting.
Marc has a real job, that is not hobby related. Marc’s not a comission painter in his free time. He’s a hobby enthusiast with a can do attitude; and now, a pretty sweet fully painted Death guard army.
We ran a league over the past 15 weeks at the store. Every 2 weeks, you’d get points for painting a new unit in your army. That’s pretty much how Marc’s Death Guard got from 1-2 unit painted to fully painted over the course of the league.
Wether he did an hour or two every other night, or one full day of going beastmode on models, I don’t know. But sure enough, every two weeks, Marc would show up with a freshly painted unit for his league army.
From the enthused amateur to the living legend
