    Hello everyone,

    I just picked up a unit of saurus knights. I was curious how much time you spend on painting these. And how much time do you normaly spend on painting one unit?

    That depends on what your trying to achieve, I painted 40ish warriors in around 12hrs but they were painted basic, I could spend 20hrs + on a single model but I rarely time myself as I have numerous projects on the go at once.

    Saurus Knights 8 models to assemble and paint to a basic standard around 10 hrs

    For me it vastly depends on the amount of details there is on a model.
    Example: Saurus Guard vs. Skinks.
    I can paint a unit of 20 Skinks in two to four evenings I think, which is 12 hours or so. Working on the same quality for Saurus Guard takes two weeks, so around 50 hours, just becasue those have four times as many details to paint.

    EDIT: Saurus Warriors are somewhere in between. I guess maybe 30 hours or so for 10.
