Painting faster

So, after all these years and I still haven't finished painting one army. Really terrible on my part. I tried to paint the miniatures to look better in pictures. Doing so made me get tired of painting fairly quick and take long breaks between painting sessions. Well, no longer. I am now painting to a lower standard but that's getting me to get ready to play faster.
For example, here is a 1500 points army ready for the tabletop:

I had the wave serpents, the wraith knight, hemlock wraith fighter, and the farseer painted. I painted the dire avengers in one go:

and the wraith lords and war walkers at the same time:

Now that I got that done, I'm starting with a chaos space marine army. This was the second army I got and was unpainted for the longest time. I have only gotten one game with it and most of the models were gray at the time. Next time I get them out to play they will be painted and looking good:

and I'm currently painting a vindicator, predator, and two rhinos:

I will paint all the bases at once so that they all have a unified theme. I'm happy I'm finally getting my armies painted and will stop playing with unpainted models. Wish I had done this before

Hemlock Wraithfighter and WraithKnight

So, after a weekend of painting I finished the Wraithknight's base and did all the painting on the Hemlock Wraithfighter. Also painted the second wave serpent. So much black paint, going to have to paint something else after I'm done with eldar / dark eldar, something more colourful. Here are the pictures:
and the finished wraith knight.
and the wave serpent with it's finished brother:

I'm ready for this weekend's games. Since it's going to be to show a new guy how to play we decided on 600 pt games. This presented an opportunity for me to finally play with an army thats completely painted. So here it is, my 600pt eldar army for this weekend:

In preparation for this weekend's games, I painted a bit of Eldar. These things take a long time to paint since I always seems to miss one detail and have to keep searching for the squad member that had that grenade unpainted or a gun with an unpainted spot. well here they are:
[edit] here is another one I painted recently.
