    they look great, really good

    and who can argue against not spending hours, and hours, and hours blending.


    it's an interesting product, basically a wash. I might have to try the 24 bottle starter set

    definitely, they recommend zenethal before using these for max effect


    it's not perfect, if you pause and full-screen the finished elf there are some funky areas, but overall pretty good.

    The speed paints go on a little nicer than the contrast paints from GW I find. You have a bit more time to work with them vs the GW that tends to be less forgiving. You will likely want to do a quick varnish after the speed paints before the details as the paint is very easy to reactivate and smear. 

    I bought some light primer and intend to try a zenethal highlight for the next batch I do. I have just been hand priming minis for now. Last time I did a big army and sprayed was decades ago. Thanks for the video.

    Super-impressive! How long has she been in the painting game? She's got a lot of talent.


    My favorite component is the addition of the purplish highlights on the dragon's body. It totally works as a highlight and creates quite a bit of visual interest.

    She has been painting minis for about 4 years now on and off. She draws a lot as well. Both kids are great artists, the other one paints on canvas, but doesn't like the small size of minis.

    Wow, she really knocked it our of the park with this one! 

    Indeed. When she started my reaction was wtf are you doing? I didn't see the vision at first. The biggest thing I learned from her is to try and be less scared with trying more colours and combinations of colours.

    You are really selling those speedpaints here - great warband ready for the tabletop - inspiring!


    I really liked the result of the speed paints. I bought the initial set of 25 (I think) recently and just noticed they have another set with some metallic colours coming that I will likely get. Huge time saver.


    I primed these guys with a dark grey and then a liberal dry brushing of white to help with even more depth in the shadows. I don't know if it was completely necessary if you want to paint the minis fast, but I think it did add some extra depth. For the skin I did go back over the original speed paint layer with a very quick lime/yellow highlight to finish it off, but it was still a lot less steps than traditional build up of skin tone. I will post some more stuff with speed paints soon.

    I really dig that slight metallic sheen that the body has.

    Glad someone noticed. Because it was such a big area to cover I used cheap hobby paint (Ceramcoat maroon I think) and mixed in some silver metallic for the highlights. It gave the skin tone more life. I think his grandmother was a silver dragon. 😉

    Good work all around!


    Sorry to hear about the busted arm, I hope it heals quickly.

    Thanks 🙏🏽 

    surgery went well and the metal plate is holding the pieces together while it heals so at least I don’t have a cast, just a removable splint. Regaining all my hand/arm strength is going to be the big challenge.

  7. Wasn’t sure how much time I would spend painting in the summer when my Bones V showed up, then I broke my arm. So painting it is since most physical activity is out for now. 

    a bunch of quick and easy Stone based minis I knocked out. 
    - Stone golem Bones V - great mini

    - clay golem Bones V - ok mini, weird in between size. Wish it was a bit bigger. 
    - Stone wall spell Bones V

    - crypt Bones IV

    - statue Bones IV

    Wave 1, dragonfolk and Shav, no notice here. 😕


    Are they holding off on orders with (regular) ships again?

    no email for me yet, but for all i know i'ts gonna take a day or more to get through wave 1 so we'll see. at least the container is here!


    Have you checked your spam folder? My tracking email went to spam. I guess a company mass-mailing UPS links looks a bit suspicious.

    A wave 3 backer in the discord just stated they got a shipping confirmation email. 

    I’m betting a solid 30-40% of the Wave 1 and 2 backers had a delayed item. 

    Any idea what the delayed items are?


    I am not in a big hurry, but am a wave 1 backer in Canada with no notification yet.
