What is #theweeklypaint?

Post by Epic Duck Mike » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:14 am

In 2012, I made myself a very big New Year's Resolution for 2012 - Paint Something Every Day.

That turned out to be a huge mistake. After a few months of trying to keep up that pace, I simply burned out on painting completely, and didn't even pick up a brush for several months.

The painting bug has bitten me again, so I've revised this goal for 2013 - Paint Something Every Week. I hope that other people feel that this goal is much easier to stick with as well, and we can get more painters in the community involved :)

To help keep track of this, I'm Tweeting updates with hashtag #theweeklypaint.

I'm inviting anyone who's interested and has a similar goal this year to join in, use the same hashtag or start your own thread, and get some models painted.

I think this is a spectacular idea! I will be busily churning out my Quickshade dipped minis and I expect I will thoroughly enjoy tweeting to #theweeklypaint . Best wishes to you all you miniwargaming peoples.

However you do it Ocean we will all eagerly await the eye candy that is your minis.

Personally I will be switching over to weekly updates... while I visit the forums everyday, I would rather post picture updates once a week... but then again I am a slacker.

I like the last option, and that's really what I'm doing myself. Think I'm tweeting out about 3 updates a week right now :)
