Update: My goal is now to do this for 30 days. I will post pics every 2-3 days and update this first post with links.
After 3 kickstarters I have a HUGE backlog of unpainted Bones minis, so I've set myself a goal of doing 5 minis a day, speed paint, table top standard. Here are the minis for my first three days...
Days 4 and 5
Days 6 and 7
Days 8, 9, & 10
Days 11 & 12
Days 13, 14, & 15
I've now passed the half way point! That's 75 painted minis in 15 days!
At my friendly national chain home improvement store I found they sell mismixed paint colors at deep discounts. There I bought a 8 oz.(237 ml) sample pot of premium interior/exterior flat "paint and primer in one" for 50 cents. So I'm experimenting with using it as a primer for Bones. I will report on how it goes. In the meantime, feel free to discuss your budget alternatives.

Now, forth, and fear no dragon!
Arise! Arise, Painters of Ma'al Drakar!
Paints shall be shaken! Brushes shall be splintered!
A glorious day... A Seven day... Ere the deadline rises!!!
For those of you unfamiliar with The Great Kaladrax Painting Challenge, initiated by buglips*the*goblin, here's a link to his thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip
Feel free to boggle at the insanity of it for a bit, I'll wait.
All done? Okay, so, being not entirely sane myself, I've decided to give it a go. I will be following the same rules buglips followed in his challenge, namely:
1) No using a brush larger than a standard Size 0 (no getting around it by using, say, a size 0 brush meant for house painting, for example)
2) I will work on Kaladrax for no more than 168 consecutive hours (7 full days)
3) The only prep time allowed before the timer starts is boiling and cleaning to remove casting residue. Removing (or not) mold lines is part of the challenge!
4) When I begin, I will post a picture of Kaladrax with my phone displaying the date and time (I don't get the newspaper)
...That's it, really. Pretty simple. I will endeavor to make semi-regular updates, but when I get deep into PaintingLand, I can lose track of time. I will, however, be very good about taking awful WIP pictures as I go, then at least doing a batch picture post each day. I've timed this so Mr. Boot is gone at a work conference about half of the 7 days, so I will have a little more free time than usual.
So! Feel free to come along for the ride. I can't promise to be on here super often (or maybe I will be, who knows), but I can promise that the trip will at least be entertaining.
If you'd rather just skip to the end, here's my official completion post with pictures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68762-oneboot-is-crazy-too-kaladrax-in-7-days-wip/&do=findComment&comment=1371410
