    Sounds like you are making nice progress.
    I am still slow. Hard to get into the painting routine again. Really weird feeling, right now I stop having fun after around half an hour to an hour of painting and then just watch TV or play a PC game.

    That's a natural progression in this hobby

    You go flat out at the beginning and see fast improvements in your work then you reach a steady ground where your work feels like it's not getting any better and you start to lose interest.

    Take a single model, one you really want to make a good job on and paint it using a new technique while you paint other stuff, only paint one section of the new model in each painting session and only after you have spent some time on the other models, you might find yourself wanting to paint again.

    It works for me and you will find you improve more in quality and speed.

    I feel that the six weeks being sick really kicked me back a bit. I lost the flow.

    I nearly completed my Stonehorn last night. Just a few finishing touches and it should be done. Hopefully, I'll be able to do that tonight and take some good pics.

    It's ok but not as good as testors.

    With testors you can apply 2 coats quickly, with army painter you have to let it dry between coats and make sure the can is shaken for a good while.
