I think I'm painting more in total, but some of my other projects are on hold whilst I keep up with the LPL.  I'm certainly looking forward to painting more bloodbowl and 1938BCW minis when I'v finished the LPL!!  But I am enjoying the LPL in the mean time!

I started apinting stuff to enter. But didn't get my photos done in time. I still haven't figured out how to edit my photos down to size to enter. Or how to submit photos to this site. But I am painting more & digging out projects that I have had on the shelf for a long time. I find this site very inspiring & helpful.

LPL means I am guaranteed to paint at least five new figures each week, so I tend to paint more. It gives me the incentive to get up that bit earlier so as to have those precious few minutes to finish figures that would otherwise languish on the painting table.

Photos are a five minute job with a digital camera, never ore than three pics for an entry (can you tell?).

Re-sizing pictures? Open the picture with MS Paint, select 'Image', 'Stretch/Skew', and change the size to 50% or as required.

One word: Photobucket.

Not only does Photobucket allow you to host your photos, you can also edit photos on Photobucket and reduce them to the appropriate size/pixel count (and it doesn't matter if you have a Mac or a PC). Personally, I find the Comic Life software that came free with my Mac useful, as it allows you to create inset detail photos and captions very easily (you don't have to use it to make comic strips, you can use it to make single photos just as easily).

I paint more, simply because I shell out more time for painting and when I do paint it's usually a group of five or more. Normally I paint maybe one evening a week but during the league it's more. It's also easier to justify the time spent painting to my girlfriend this way. Last few weeks I haven't done a lot as I already had round 5 done before the league started. But now I'm busy painting the final model for round 6 which will have eight models in total.

I'm painting a looooooooooooot more than I usually do. I'm quite a slow painter and I usually paint either showcase miniatures (example) or miniatures for Warmachine or Hordes which take a long time too.

For the LPL I have switched to painting volume but I try to keep as much quality on the paintjobs as I can in a week's time (which isn't a lot!!!). For the Cultists, Arkham investigators and the Skorne Paingivers and Void Spirits it worked well enough. For me it's perfect as I'm working on the Cosmic Horror rulebook and I need painted miniatures to use for all the examples and cool shots. So hopefully after the LPL I have enough material to make nice and interesting photos for the rulebook :)

Me too.

In fact, I might go blind before the competition is complete...  o_o

The LPL is working wonders for my production. I'm painting more then I usually would. It really helps to make me sit down more often and pick up a paintbrush or to do other things like base, removing mouldlines and stuff.

I voted for the first cause LPL made me paint, and it was great before real life (tm) forced me to stop, and now it's hard to start again  ::)
