Sat down for two hours today to make the time until bones 3 shipment notification go by.  Thought I'd try a speed paint of something largish.  Wasn't sure if this should have gone in the WIP thread.  Not putting it in show off though since it is far from what I would consider done.  Still, a fun test of my speed.


2:39 pm about to rip open the bag.



2:51 pm mold lines trimmed, washed, glued to a base.




3:13 pm.  Brown linered.  Poured too much so a big puppy got some liner too.  Had to wait for drying anyway.




3:47 pm.  Green hair, off white weapon and other accessories.  Eyes.




4:08 pm. Skin.  Lots of skin.  




4:28 pm.  Blue and purple/red cloth and accessories.  What, only 10 minutes left?  




4:41 copper details.  Little leather.  Okay, technically a couple minutes over.  Would have liked to go for another 20-30 min but I had to run out.  






mission accomplished?  Well, there base could use some attention.  And the face.  Really all of the skin could use a highlight. And the hair.  


But I think I'll keep it as is for now to show what I am capable of in two hours.  Maybe try this again in a while (there is the male still to do) and see if I get any faster.

Your 2 hour paint job looks way better than my 2 day paint job. Nice work!!!


Nice of you to say, Taskmaster.  There's a lot I'd do with a little more time, but I am happy with it for what it is.  I think it's a good exercise and recommend trying a quickie from time to time.  Helps get you to realize what you can do with simpler techniques and color choice which can come in handy even when you are taking your time.

      Better late than never.  I started these 3 months ago and finished them about 1 month ago.  Finally have a halfway decent photo area again, so I can post pictures!
      Over winter break, my elder digit and I spent an afternoon playing with some plastic tree armatures from the train store.  You have to glue your own flock on to make the leaves, etc.  I wanted to make a cluster so I carved some foam into the shape of a little hill and painted white.  The trees were not strong enough to punch through the foam though, so I ended up using the glue gun to get them to stay in.  More recently we tested out a mini string of led lights and tried trimming the tiny trees.  Did not work out great - I lost a lot of foliage in the process and the lights are spaced out too far for the scale - there’s wire all over the place.  Oh well, I had to use it after all that work, so it is the background for this jolly crowd.

      Ok, here is my first NMM paint job. I'm not sure if I dislike the technique, or just picked a bad mini to try it on first. I found it a bit fiddly and frustrating with all of the dully cast spikey bits. I did a pretty quick TT quality job on everything not NMM, so I know there are a lot of places to improve there. 
      Also, I feel like the photos make it look better than it really is. I'm pretty happy with how the front of the armor turned out, but the shield and shoulder pauldrons were frustrating.





      Would truly appreciate any feedback on improving the quality of my NMM!
      I'll be doing Mangu next and tracking in the same WIP thread.

      This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.

      This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.
