  1. Last night I did a quick paint of a couple of minis while my wife painted a paint-by-numbers. I did a little bit of extra work this morning, and had some equipment malfunctions that damaged the minimal face I did paint. As this was all about a quick job, I only fixed the problem, but didn't redo it. The WIP is linked and photos will follow shortly in a separate post (I'm currently trapped by feline).
  2. I had an idea for a quick paint while my wife does some paint by numbers. The goal is to be done tonight, though I don't know if that will happen anymore. She's stopped painting and now we're watching Brooklyn 99 while she does some embroidery. There may also be Scotch (Bruchladdich) involved later, providing further reason to stop.
  3. This was my very first commission! One of MrBoot's coworkers was wanting a painted figure for gaming purposes, and my husband volunteered my services, for a small fee. I was more than happy to oblige. This was a (for me) fairly quick and dirty paint job. I spent maybe 4 hours total on it, with the first hour spent just prepping (washing, drying, trimming mold lines, priming, waiting for primer to dry, etc.) My goal was "decent tabletop" since it was intended for gaming, and the guy only gave me $15 for the mini+paint job. I did email him pictures of a couple of my other quick paint jobs to let him know what to expect before I started, and he said that he was happy with that level of detail. I'm happy with my color choices, and I at least made an attempt at highlighting, so while it's rough in these close-up pictures, it doesn't look half bad at arm's length. I wish I'd taken a close-up of his face, though; since it's so shaded by his hood, and won't even be visible on a gaming board, I didn't bother painting an actual face face. It's more of an impressionistic shaded blobs sort of face, but it looks surprisingly decent from even a short distance. You might notice some bubbling here and there, and that's because I did a gloss sealer coat (Reaper) for durability, followed by Brush-on Sealer to make it look nicer. I've done very little with gloss sealer, and didn't discover that it bubbles a bit more than the brush-on until it was too late. It's not super obvious unless you stare at it closely, though. I also want to note that gloss sealer is...super duper glossy. Like, seriously. In fact, I was worried that the brush-on sealer wouldn't be able to tone it down, but a slightly thinned coat (with two coats in a few still-shiny spots) did the trick far better than I'd expected! Overall, I'm quite pleased with how he turned out. He was a very fun sculpt to paint, and I enjoyed employing a "good enough, git 'er done" mindset. Main colors used (since I was focused on going fast, I didn't do my usual "take notes as I go", so I'm recreating this from memory + the bunch of paint bottles still on my desk) Robe: Ritterlich blue, Ultramarine blue, Ultramarine highlight Cloak: Rich green, Christmas wreath, either Leaf green or Grass green Skin: Leather brown, Elf flesh, Caucasian flesh Various leathers and woods: Mahogany brown, Oiled leather, Golden blonde? Boots: Brown liner, Dark elf highlight Hair: Coal black, Powderburn brown, Golden blonde Arrow fletching and gems: Carrot top red, Lava orange, Explosion orange Various metallic objects: Tarnished steel, Ancient bronze, Dragon bronze Ground: Drybrush of: Highland moss, Pale lichen, then either Leaf green or Grass green I admit to being rather astonished at just how many paint bottles I used on this one simple project, but in my defense, since this was my very first commission, I wanted it to look at least somewhat nice (in the hopes that others in his gaming group might be interested in the future ). Plus, I really had a whole lot of fun painting this guy. I looooove Bobby Jackson's sculpts, he always has so many fun details to play with, without being exceptionally fiddly. After it was delivered, MrBoot reported that the recipient was very pleased with how it turned out, and was "super surprised at all of the details" I'd painted on it. Apparently, he's used to prepaints. We actually ran into him at the grocery store a week later, and he again expressed how much he liked it, and how detailed it was, and that other people in his group might be interested in getting painted minis for themselves! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    77004: Cave Troll - Bones Quick Paint

    This is one of my favorite monster pieces. I love the sculpt and he is a blast to paint. I have a couple more that I want to do, though I'm not sure what colors I will use next. This one was pretty basic, a green, dirty troll. I may need him this coming weekend for a session, so I wanted to make sure he was ready. Total time invested is a little over 2 hours, mainly due to letting layers and varnish dry. Enjoy! CAH

    Skeleton Guardian quick paints...Bones

    Here are a few skeletons I did as a quick painting test. Basically, I primed them, base coated, and then used a dark wash. The goal was something that looked dirty and dark, and was ready for the table. I feel like it came out the way I was hoping, though next time I think I may bring up some minor highlights to make them pop. I have more skeles and zombies to complete, so I should get plenty of practice. As always, C&C is welcomed and appreciated. CAH

    Kobolds from Reaper (Quickpaint)

    These little guys were my first test at table top quick paints. I plan to use them for a game this weekend, and needed to get several done fast. I think I have right at 3 hours in them, not including the priming. I was considering basing them, but I decided not to, just painted the base they were on. I posted the beginnings of them, and a completed group shot in the WIP forum. Here are the singles. Sorry for the bad pictures, as my camera was stolen. I am currently back to using my iphone, and I don't quite have it down. Overall, these little guys were a basecoat, minor highlights, and washes. I was going for a little better than the normal prepaints. I am happy with how they came out. CAH
