Speed paint monsters Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Recommended Posts

Have had to rush some minis for our ongoing Dnd campaign, Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Am not the DM but paint the minis. 

 

All Reaper Bones that started with Army Painter ink washes in one colour over the whole thing. Then using Vallejo paints as base layers and finishing off with another ink wash to tie things together.

 

The Drakes are "young fire dragons" with the wings cut off. With more time I would have sorted out the two stumps where each wing was. 

 

The Lizardman is standing in for a troglodyte and the Lilies are standing in for Violet Fungi. 

 

The cultists are just the Mythos / Cthulu cultists. 

 

There is a roper as well. 

 

Can really recommend lining Bones with ink as a liner which I know a lot of others recommend. The whole lot took 3 hours so it is a quick way of getting things onto the table.

I think I posted twice by accident once with pics once without... Sorry. There should be pics now. 

 

You did; I just merged the two threads so there wasn't a duplicate. ^_^ The pictures in the first post are showing up just fine!

 

Great use of the ink washes over the colored basecoat, that really made things nice and speedy!

 

Huzzah!

      Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out:
       
      Front
      Back
       
      Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad).
       
      Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift.
       
      I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks.
       
      All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.

      So I started painting this guy... I don't even remember how long ago. Pulled him out tonight and decided to wash him with a couple other bones I was prepping... He felt a little tacky... And now feels worse. And the tooth brush feels all gummy.
       
      He's from Bones 1, and probably painted with older GW paints, not not 100% sure.
       
      Fairly sure I'm just going to drop him in some simple green and start over... Though I'm wondering if there has been some weird chemical change and if I'd just be better off getting a new copy of him?
       
      Anyone else run into something like this? I know some paint dries tacky on bones, but can that be cleaned off and repainted?

      Howdy,
       
         Yes, I know Captain Stern...
       

       
      Kev!
      P.s. He should be torn into itsy bitsy pieces and buried alive!

      Howdy,
       
          It's not my place to question what bear does or does not do in the woods...
       

       
      Kev!
      P.s. But it DOES make a sound, though...

      This one was on my shelf of shame for quite a while, until my daughter told me off for having it lying around.  So I sculpted a shirt for her out of greenstuff which was a fun learning process.  I needed her for my D&D game last week, so she got the speed paint finish.  Her skin is the dusky flesh triad with some light grey added.
