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
A little story to go with this one... I hadn't picked up a brush since I finished my last Exchange figure, which was near the end of last year, and my paint desk was buried with Stuff. I kept meaning to start painting again, but something always seemed to be more important, until Friday of last week, when Mr. Boot was looking through our Bones to find some appropriate minis for our Pathfinder game that evening. Him: *holds up the Hell Hound* This is perfect. If only it were black... Me: Black? I can do that quick and easy, I'll just cover it in Brown Liner. Him: Hm...can you make it look like it's on fire too? Me: Sure. *thinking I can just slap some orange and red onto the spiky bits* Him: I mean, like the skin is charred, but it's still on fire? Me: Hm... *ponders* Sure, I think I can do that. But I'll have to work on it during the game. Him: That's fine. So, in between throwing fireballs at things and trying not to die, I painted this guy: But wait! There's more to this story! After I finished it up and sealed it and had waited long enough for the sealer to dry, I handed it over to Mr. Boot, letting the other players know that I had no idea what this was for, only that he'd needed it painted. Not too long after that, we entered a boss fight. Against...yep, you guessed it, the hound I'd just painted. So, yeah. I painted the boss of the dungeon during the game, and I'd had no idea the whole time! It then proceeded to murder-ify all of us, but that was actually part of the story. We got better. It's sloppy and messy and not at all up to my usual standard, but I had fun painting him! I think I should have used more orange, though; the yellow kinda took over. Ah well. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
