    Speed painted slimes

    Real quick speed paint using inks. Just to get them on the table. Some slimes I picked up at the LVO earlier this year.
  2. At the Origins Game Fair last month, I took part in Reaper's speed-painting contest. I hadn't painted much all year because of a new job, but I wanted to jump back into painting with some necessarily fast work. Cheryl (LadyStorm) ran the contest. It was right next to the Reaper booth. As usual for Reaper's speed-paints, each contestant got a basic set of 12 paints (a combination of Master Series and HD) and 2 brushes. Paint colors: red, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, black, Caucasian flesh, orange-brown, dark brown, silver, and gold. I didn't use the silver or gold at all, because I didn't want to get shiny flakes polluting the water. As you can see, I relied heavily on the browns. Brush sizes/shapes: a larger flat brush and a smaller pointed brush ... except for Round 2. See below. So now I have 3 new Bones figures to show for about 3 hours of painting. Some of the paint rubbed off along the way back home, but otherwise they are unchanged. I'm not sure whether I'll clean up the paint jobs under better lighting and with better brushes, or just leave them like this. Anyway, here they are: Round 1: beastman warrior 2, Bones #77253. 45 minutes. Round 2 (semifinal): Bloodhoof, minotaur barbarian, Bones #77251. 50 minutes. The larger flat brushes used in the Round-1 heats had all gotten frazzled, and Cheryl wanted to save some new ones for the final round, so we got only 2 small brushes for this round -- size 5/0. It's tough painting a big figure with a tiny brush. Round 3 (final): Dragoth the Defiler, plus throne, Bones #77201. 75 minutes. I quickly realized that Dragoth wasn't permanently attached to the throne, so I pulled them apart, painted the two pieces separately, and then put them back together with a few minutes left. As you can see, his back is just plain black, but at least I avoided leaving anything unpainted and glaringly white. Thanks for looking! Derek
  3. So, I've been invited to the FLCS to play in an Age of Sigmar scenario. I've never played before, and I don't own many GW minis. I was told that this would not be a problem. Right o' then. Then next step was to figure out what run. Evidently for the scenario I needed to bring some sort of Hero and a pair of units with the minimum number of models to make up each. I downloaded the rules (all four pages of them, shocking coming from GW) and all of the Warscrolls (army lists basically). Reading through the Warscrolls, I finally hit upon something that I already had models for. Orcs. I went in on the Orcpocolypse in Bones 1, and all of those excellent Tre Manor orcs were just sitting there, asking for paint. I quickly decided on a list of two units of Black Orcs (5 models each) and a Hero, Grimgore Ironhide, to be played by 77064 Kavorgh Orc Warboss. For the units, I'm going with 77051 Orc Stalker and 77042 Orc Marauder. One model in each troop is a Black Ork Boss and hey will be represented by 77059 Orc Berserker. The game is on Saturday at 1300 (1pm). I figure that I have to leave by noonish to get there, so I have approx. 14 hours to get them done....and get some sleep. I plan on using some of the techniques that I learned at RCon during the Army Painting class I took from Aaron. I'll try and post pictures as I go along, but depending on how much of a roll I find myself on, they may be far and few between. As of right now, all figures have been boiled, scrubbed and given a coat of Blue Liner. I went with the Blue vice the Brown as I tink it will help out with the base colors. The Black Orks will all have dark skin, steel weapons and armor and leather accessories So I' keeping it basic. I plan of starting with the skin, moving onto the weapons and armor and finishing with the belts, boot and fur capes. We shall see how he plan survives contact with the enemy. Figures as they stand now, while waiting for the Liner to finish drying. And in taking the picture it appears that I made a made a mistake and prepped 5 Stalkers and only 3 Marauders. There was supposed to be 4 of each. Oh well, onward! Paint appears to be dry so next step is flesh. I'm going to try Dark Elf Skin first and if that doesn't work, I'll wing it.
  4. With Gencon coming up soon, it seemed like a good day for a speed paint drill. I didn't go so far as to do this the convention way, with ~10 colors and scruffy brushes, but I did squeeze it into an hour lunch break. He's bound for my Frostgrave warband, so I wanted to keep the colors subdued so as not to attract too much undue attention from across the table. I lost half my band to crossbow fire in my most recent game...as it is, he seems to have attracted the attention of the fossil trilobite on my desk. The scroll on the shield cried out for a motto; I added the first thing that came to mind. In a fantasy setting, this is probably already a translation of something in a fantasy script and language, so not much to be gained from Googling for something in Latin or French...
  5. Welcome to my 12 hour dragon challenge, loosely based on Professir Buglips original 7 day challenges. Why only 12 hours you might say? Well, there appear to be quite a few of us who have difficulty stitching together two, much less seven, days of consecutive painting sessions. Therefore, I'm trying to pathfind a challenge that fits for the more time deficient among us! If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you need to check out the latest one to accept the challenge, OneBoot's Crazy Too Kaladrax WIP. The goblin's challenge is to paint a large centerpiece figure (Kaladrax, Dragons Don't Share 2, etc) in seven calender days. There are several rules that go with it, which you can read in the WIP linked. Since this is a different challenge, a few twists are in order. So, my rules for the 12 hour dragon challenge are: 1) No using a brush larger than a standard size 0. The Professir is going to codify this shortly, but roughly 10mm long is all you get. 2) The brush you select is the ONLY thing that is allowed to apply paint to the figure. This means just one brush! Dry brush, if you dare. 3) You have only a straight 12 hours from the start of the challenge to finish. Any breaks, meals, family outings take away from that time. Plan ahead. 4) The only prep that is allowed beforehand is boiling and setting the figure (if in Bones), fit checking the parts, pinning the legs if needed, and making accomodations on the base by drilling holes for the pins. No mold lines may be removed, no primer applied, no gaps filled, and no other work on the base is allowed. 5) Paint must be applied by only the brush bristles. No finger painting or using the handle of the brush to dot the eyes. 6) Brush may not be altered, other than from normal use. And bristles that fall out are excluded from eligibility. 7) Single painter only, no teaming up with someone to work in shifts. 8) The figure must have pigmented paint on all visible surfaces, less minor, incidental gaps where it is joined or based. It's a bit of a large set of rules, but I've been trying to find ways to "cheat" at Buglips' challenge for a while, so I've had time to think about it. I was thinking about Livestreaming on YouTube, but I think I may skip that. If there's interest, I did manage to figure it out. I have to cut it up in several blocks, and there's no point in filming me eat lunch or dinner. But let's start with the beginning picture, and then I'll see you at Monday, 5/30, at 8am (Mountain time) for the start of the challenge.

    77159 Bones Ghast (bloody)

    This is just an old ghast from Bones 1 that I have finally gotten around to. I used him as a paint scheme tester for his brothers from Bones 2, which I'll be converting and painting shortly. I like how he looks overall, but I kinda think his skin tone is a little off; I think he looks too 'alive'. What do you think? Blood and gore were done with a hair, superglue, Tamiya clear red, and Tamiya smoke. I'll go into the process in detail if anyone's interested. C&C welcome.
  7. These are a couple of 25mm resin tents I found in the clearence section at the Hobby Bunker in Malden MA, the last New England Paint Day, for $3! Figured they would be good table top dressing for out door encounters. (Now I need to get the campfire stuff from our hosts....) Going to try to speed paint them for Friday.... Left one is VMC Green Grey, Right one is VMC Feldgrau with Black. These were primed with Dupli-Color sandable black auto primer. (I read on the forums somewhere that this is what P3 primer is with a different label, so I thought I would try it. From the coverage, and the smell, I would say that the poster was correct! Now I just need to get some white and try that too.... George
  8. Here's the super quick speed paint I did for my D&D buddy tonight, about 3 hours start to finish. For the purposes of our D&D game, this is Belatos the Aasimar Druid. Figure: Tolan, Male Druid - Reaper SKU #02692 Sculptor: Sandra Garrity C&C welcomed and appreciated! Thanks for looking
  9. As the title hopefully implies, my objective is to paint some several Zombicide Season 1 zombies quickly (for me) in January. They are going to be tabletop standard, as I want to use them for my game as soon as possible. With those goals in mind, I have taken a row from the group (4 walker, 2 runners, and 1 fatty) and begun to prep them up and paint them. The first one is complete and (in my mind) completely horrible, so no pictures of him. The 2nd one from my Jan set is another walker. I've spent approximately 2 hours on her total (including priming, no of lines). Now I've decided that I will actually do marginal line cleaning. Which will result in me having to reprimer a few of them. I base coated her a bit darker than I usually would for her base coat on the skin. I think on the next I will do that for all the colors. The rest were done normal mid tone. I then quickly applied 2-4 highlights where I thought they were needed. Then I applies a dark brownish wash all over. Followed by a 2nd wash only in the darkest areas. Next I reapplied highlights and added some details. It still needs sealer applied. But for the time I think it came out ok. I plan to follow this for the rest of my zombies, hoping that as I gain practice I will speed it up and refine it. Gore will follow on later zombies. I wanted a few relatively blood free for variety. This is my next walker. I applied RMS black primer as an experiment. With the (possible) cold winter days of the northeast on the way, I wanted an alternative to spending days cleaning and priming. I'll see how it goes. Now follows the rest I plan to paint in Jan:
  10. I honestly can't remember where I got this, or who made it, so if you know please let me know. This is a quick speed paint/experiment. Other than primer, I did the whole thing with a succession of different washes, inks, and a little bit of drybrushing until it looked sufficiently grungy and disgusting. I think it took me about 2 hours all together. C&C is always welcome.

    Speed painted Ral Partha gargoyle

    I had mixed up a unique shade of gray paint for another figure I'm working on, and had a fair bit left over. Not wanting to waste it, I dug this out of storage and slapped it on him. I think it took me about an hour and a half to finish him up. The base color is pretty close to the same color as the figure; this is intentional. I wanted to get kind of a camouflage effect with it. The figure has a loincloth sculpted on, which I found kind of funny. Why would a gargoyle need a loincloth, are they anatomically correct? My mind works in strange ways sometimes... Anyway, here's the pics, please let me know what you think.
  12. It's that time of year again. I've got a bunch of figures on my desk and I want to move them along. Some of them have been sitting since last winter. Out with the old and in with the new! Here's a quick look at some of what I want to finish by Jan 1, 2016. I started yesterday with ones close to completion, 50238: Farrah, Sci Fi Heroine and WGE-205 Harbinger of Khanum from Crocodile Games (laying down). All in all, it's about 20 figures in 10 days. And like all my paint binges, everyone is welcome to join in. Post if you're painting, and post pictures as you go.

    Speed paint: old GW monopose skaven

    'Damn it all' said Rolf as trudged through the rancid sewer tunnel. Their patrol was almost over, and here he was investigating some noise that the sergeant had heard. He shouldn't have made that crack about the man's sister. He could still barely hear the others back at the junction talking while they waited for him. 'Damn it all' he said again softly. 'There's nothing here', he thought to himself, 'I'm going back.' Wait....what was that? An enormous hole gaped in the side of the sewer passage. He raised his lantern to get a better loo and found himself staring face to face with a rat. Except that this rat stood on legs, like a man. Suddenly, he felt a scabrous hand press over his mouth from behind as the things sword slid into his guts. ================================================================================================================= This is a figure that I got in a box with a bunch of other figures; it was severely damaged; someone had attacked it with clippers and half severed it's tail, face, and broken off the right arm. I initially used it practice working with green stuff, once it was repaired, I figured I'd throw some paint at it. This is what I managed to do in a little over 2 hours this afternoon.

    77010: Kobolds Speed paints

    Well I got back from my second week of vacation in August, and realized I only had week and a day to get my quota done for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for this month! A quick Sunday night dig through my drawers of Bones and I found some Kobolds to speed paint. These 9 were painted in maybe 4 hours over 5 lunch hours last week. Just base coats and a few details. Then brought home and Quickshaded. I then sprayed the first 3 with anti-shine, which frosted (due to the humidity I assume). So they were coated with a gloss brush on to try to save them. It brought them back some but they are still a little frosty in a few places...oh well, these are for table top ... They were then all coated with a brush on matt sealer. I may give them a bit more attention with the matt sealer tomorrow evening, but its almost 1 am here, so good enough for tonight...
  16. Just a little speed paint of some bones Bathalians these were about an hour and a half each Exarch: Centurion Primarch: Of the three I like the centurion the most.
  17. Did this guy in 45 minutes for the Thursday afternoon Speed Paint at Gen Con. No Idea who he is. Relatively happy with him. Though others at the table had more intersting paint jobs. My guy feels at least practical. Also did the Darsword one on friday but I can't for the life of me get her to photograph. I'll try again tomorrow. EDIT: Oh Snap! this is my 1000th post! Ok EJ, Be cool, be cool. Say something to the people. Um...It's been a great ride Good, good. Let's keep it moving. I hope to have something good for a title Yeah, this is good stuff. And I hope this will help everyone overlook the canniblism. Oh !^#@^*#*^%& and you still haven't fixed the Darksword typo. It's Darksword! Darksword, not Darsword. *Smacks himself*

    77066: Shaeress, Dark Elf Queen

    This was the figure I did at speed paint during Reapercon. No games, just paint it in 45 minutes. Then when I got it home I cleaned her up a little bit. I already have an evil version of Shaeress, so I wanted this one to be 'good'.

    Megaminis Skeletons speed paints

    This is a little bit of a two year flashback for me. When I started painting again, some of the first things I painted were a bunch of Megaminis skeletons I'd got in a big combo pack. I'd just picked up some Quickshade that I wanted to try out, and I'd read a how-to on using it for skeletons. So I blasted through almost the whole set of skeletons until something (I'm thinking my first Reaper order, with my first Bones in it) distracted me. Just a few weeks ago I was cleaning up down in my basement painting area (trying to get it usable, so I can get back to learning to use my airbrush) when I found the five skeletons I hadn't painted. So I decided I'd try painting them the same as I did back them. I immediately ran into one problem...I'd originally painted them with Partha paints, and I'd just given away all my Parthas to an old friend who was getting back into painting. I figured out some colours that seemed close went with them. It was weird painting this way again. The whole paint job was less than my normal base coat now. No wonder it takes me so much longer to paint stuff now. So here are the 5 I painted up over the last week or so (I was sick for a few day, which slowed me down). And here they are mixed in with the horde I painted two years ago. At some point I'll go back and put them all on bases (perhaps the ones coming with Bones 2). BTW, I'd like thank Xherman1964 for letting me know that these used to be made by Metal Magic back before Megaminis had them. And does anyone know where they are now? Megaminis closed for a while and sold off most of their molds. The owner is back up and casting again, but so far doesn't have the skeletons available...

    77037: Medusa, 77048: Mocking Beast

    Hi, Two speed paint projects for d&d adventure.
  21. We needed Bugbears for D&D and with the timing of my Bones II delivery on Friday I dug these guys out, washed them and sat down to paint them. I spent 4 hours on Sunday painting and basing these guys. Considering that breaks down to about 40 minutes a mini I am happy with them and now they can hit the table this week. And as a bonus they will also bring my total for the RPChallenge for February to 8. After looking up their sku's I discovered Reaper named the three new sculpts and I must say I love that they have names. Makes me feel they have so much more character now and feel sorry I didn't spend a bit more time on them. Sorry only took one group picture of these guys as I didn't feel they each deserved their own photo.
  22. This one is a speed paint for gaming. I wanted for a while to try painting a miniature with an almost-all brown palette, and with this mini in the queue, it seemed a good match. I painted this figure once before, 3 years ago, and I probably did a better job that time, but I put many, many more hours on it then. This one probably only took about 5 hours, not including basing. I made a custom enlarge base again, too, which is becoming standard for my fighter-type gaming figures. And here's the version I painted three years ago, for comparison:
  23. So, I decided to challenge myself with my Cavern Crawler. I've been mulching through human figures, which I'll post in my Show-off thread in a little bit, but this guy I decided to do as a speed paint. I started him this evening, with the goal to get him to tabletop quality in under two hours. I think I succeeded; this is how he came out. Time from first paint applied to putting the brush down: 1 hour and 38 minutes: I only used seven colours painting this model: Linen White Oiled Leather Sun Yellow Walnut Brown Fire Orange Magma Red Violet Red Lots of drybrushing, lots of washes. Nothing on this one actually took that long - even the face was pretty quick, I just painted it various shades of Magma Red:Linen White, drybrushed it in a few areas with walnut brown, then detailed the mouth 1:1 Violet Red:Linen White and picked out the teeth and such with a panel brush. The back was Fire Orange drybrushed with Magma Red drybrushed with Walnut Brown, and the belly was 1:2:4 Oiled Leather:Sun Yellow:Linen White, washed with Oiled Leather. At the speed I was painting, I never put the figure down for the entirety of the time I was painting, but the paint dried fast enough that I didn't get much mixing/smearing. In the pictures, it's pretty easy to see the spots where I got dribbly during my washes, or where paint didn't reach. Still, holding it in hand, you don't notice any of them really, and it looks pretty excellent from a foot or so away. The face I'm really happy with, actually... With speed paints in the future, I think I would start by picking the lightest key colour, mixing up a whole bunch of it, and using a soft toothbrush to paint the whole figure in that color before I started basecoating. That way, I wouldn't have to worry about forcing paint into cracks. I did glue this figure before painting, so I would probably precolour at least that area; that way, I wouldn't have had to worry so much about those little legs later on... I think I'll revisit this one in a day or two to continue adding details and refining it. This was more an effort to see what I could do in a short amount of time; I like this figure, and I think with more effort, I could take it further. Still, for now I'm content; I wouldn't feel any shame in putting this onto the table, definitely. If any of you guys have suggestions, either speed painting ones or ideas on how to take this figure further, I'd love to hear them...

    Brother Vincent (speed paint PC)

    Today I finished up another PC for the current D&D campaign we’re playing. This one is for a friend and the scheme is his choosing. He’s a cleric of Pelor. The base is a ruins base from Micro Art (I think?). The cloak’s symbol is supposed to be like this: This is the symbol of the deity, “Pelor” in D&D (strictly fictional). I attempted to free paint this on the cloak, as was asked by my friend. It’s not as bad as I thought it would come out I’m pretty happy. Enjoy!
