  1. Just a little speed paint of some bones Bathalians these were about an hour and a half each Exarch: Centurion Primarch: Of the three I like the centurion the most.
  2. Did this guy in 45 minutes for the Thursday afternoon Speed Paint at Gen Con. No Idea who he is. Relatively happy with him. Though others at the table had more intersting paint jobs. My guy feels at least practical. Also did the Darsword one on friday but I can't for the life of me get her to photograph. I'll try again tomorrow. EDIT: Oh Snap! this is my 1000th post! Ok EJ, Be cool, be cool. Say something to the people. Um...It's been a great ride Good, good. Let's keep it moving. I hope to have something good for a title Yeah, this is good stuff. And I hope this will help everyone overlook the canniblism. Oh !^#@^*#*^%& and you still haven't fixed the Darksword typo. It's Darksword! Darksword, not Darsword. *Smacks himself*
  3. This was the figure I did at speed paint during Reapercon. No games, just paint it in 45 minutes. Then when I got it home I cleaned her up a little bit. I already have an evil version of Shaeress, so I wanted this one to be 'good'.
  4. This is a little bit of a two year flashback for me. When I started painting again, some of the first things I painted were a bunch of Megaminis skeletons I'd got in a big combo pack. I'd just picked up some Quickshade that I wanted to try out, and I'd read a how-to on using it for skeletons. So I blasted through almost the whole set of skeletons until something (I'm thinking my first Reaper order, with my first Bones in it) distracted me. Just a few weeks ago I was cleaning up down in my basement painting area (trying to get it usable, so I can get back to learning to use my airbrush) when I found the five skeletons I hadn't painted. So I decided I'd try painting them the same as I did back them. I immediately ran into one problem...I'd originally painted them with Partha paints, and I'd just given away all my Parthas to an old friend who was getting back into painting. I figured out some colours that seemed close went with them. It was weird painting this way again. The whole paint job was less than my normal base coat now. No wonder it takes me so much longer to paint stuff now. So here are the 5 I painted up over the last week or so (I was sick for a few day, which slowed me down). And here they are mixed in with the horde I painted two years ago. At some point I'll go back and put them all on bases (perhaps the ones coming with Bones 2). BTW, I'd like thank Xherman1964 for letting me know that these used to be made by Metal Magic back before Megaminis had them. And does anyone know where they are now? Megaminis closed for a while and sold off most of their molds. The owner is back up and casting again, but so far doesn't have the skeletons available...
  5. Hi, Two speed paint projects for d&d adventure.
  6. We needed Bugbears for D&D and with the timing of my Bones II delivery on Friday I dug these guys out, washed them and sat down to paint them. I spent 4 hours on Sunday painting and basing these guys. Considering that breaks down to about 40 minutes a mini I am happy with them and now they can hit the table this week. And as a bonus they will also bring my total for the RPChallenge for February to 8. After looking up their sku's I discovered Reaper named the three new sculpts and I must say I love that they have names. Makes me feel they have so much more character now and feel sorry I didn't spend a bit more time on them. Sorry only took one group picture of these guys as I didn't feel they each deserved their own photo.
  7. This one is a speed paint for gaming. I wanted for a while to try painting a miniature with an almost-all brown palette, and with this mini in the queue, it seemed a good match. I painted this figure once before, 3 years ago, and I probably did a better job that time, but I put many, many more hours on it then. This one probably only took about 5 hours, not including basing. I made a custom enlarge base again, too, which is becoming standard for my fighter-type gaming figures. And here's the version I painted three years ago, for comparison:
  8. So, I decided to challenge myself with my Cavern Crawler. I've been mulching through human figures, which I'll post in my Show-off thread in a little bit, but this guy I decided to do as a speed paint. I started him this evening, with the goal to get him to tabletop quality in under two hours. I think I succeeded; this is how he came out. Time from first paint applied to putting the brush down: 1 hour and 38 minutes: I only used seven colours painting this model: Linen White Oiled Leather Sun Yellow Walnut Brown Fire Orange Magma Red Violet Red Lots of drybrushing, lots of washes. Nothing on this one actually took that long - even the face was pretty quick, I just painted it various shades of Magma Red:Linen White, drybrushed it in a few areas with walnut brown, then detailed the mouth 1:1 Violet Red:Linen White and picked out the teeth and such with a panel brush. The back was Fire Orange drybrushed with Magma Red drybrushed with Walnut Brown, and the belly was 1:2:4 Oiled Leather:Sun Yellow:Linen White, washed with Oiled Leather. At the speed I was painting, I never put the figure down for the entirety of the time I was painting, but the paint dried fast enough that I didn't get much mixing/smearing. In the pictures, it's pretty easy to see the spots where I got dribbly during my washes, or where paint didn't reach. Still, holding it in hand, you don't notice any of them really, and it looks pretty excellent from a foot or so away. The face I'm really happy with, actually... With speed paints in the future, I think I would start by picking the lightest key colour, mixing up a whole bunch of it, and using a soft toothbrush to paint the whole figure in that color before I started basecoating. That way, I wouldn't have to worry about forcing paint into cracks. I did glue this figure before painting, so I would probably precolour at least that area; that way, I wouldn't have had to worry so much about those little legs later on... I think I'll revisit this one in a day or two to continue adding details and refining it. This was more an effort to see what I could do in a short amount of time; I like this figure, and I think with more effort, I could take it further. Still, for now I'm content; I wouldn't feel any shame in putting this onto the table, definitely. If any of you guys have suggestions, either speed painting ones or ideas on how to take this figure further, I'd love to hear them...
  9. Today I finished up another PC for the current D&D campaign we’re playing. This one is for a friend and the scheme is his choosing. He’s a cleric of Pelor. The base is a ruins base from Micro Art (I think?). The cloak’s symbol is supposed to be like this: This is the symbol of the deity, “Pelor” in D&D (strictly fictional). I attempted to free paint this on the cloak, as was asked by my friend. It’s not as bad as I thought it would come out I’m pretty happy. Enjoy!
  10. I speed-painted this Reaper Bones mini in two hours for a friend.
  11. some quick paint jobs for the tabletop, I believe the two spirits are part of Kim's Necropolis army. The scorpions were picked up for mine. This brings my yearly total to 93 of the 100 I planned to do... I might just make it!
  12. So, now that we have recovered from GenCon, I thought it time to show off my horrible excuse for painting a Mouseling at GenCon:P Others are welcome to show off and post pics of their Speed Paint entries from GenCon 2013, too:) Mine came in as Honorable Mention(AKA Fourth Place) in my round. Third Pic didn't come out so good. So what did everyone else paint and how well did it do? GF
  13. This is a Privateer Press figure, I'm pretty sure, though I cannot identify it on their website. Here is the first version, after an hour speed paint at GenCon: I normally do not repaint speed painted figures, but I felt this one had not reached its full potential. So I did this to it in 45 minutes: I figure it will make a pretty good Warforged in our D&D game.
  14. I couldn't think of a better start for adding my posts to these forums. As my 5 year old daughter has recently started showing an interest in my miniature painting, I decided to get a couple of unicorns to paint with and for her. This is the result of about 1 hours worth of painting, followed by 5 minutes of Quickshade on my effort, then a quick matte coat the next day to get rid of the gloss. I'm really proud of her effort. It was originally all pink, which in her words was "so we don't have to use all the paints", but when I got out the rest of the colors for my rainbow bits, she decided she wanted to do more, and did. The grass was added because "unicorns love grass". For my effort, I actually really like the patchy shading that resulted from the Quickshade, it makes it look more gritty. And she really likes both of them, so I couldn't ask for more.
  15. OK, we're not looking at fine art here. This was a 45 minute speed paint I did at GenCon. I should know by now to never use yellow in a speed paint, especially over black primer, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I blame low blood sugar. I do like the way the red tabard came out, but I spent too much time on it at the expense of the rest of the figure. I thought about repainting it, but why bother. I've got a lot of figures I like better.
  16. Must I start all of these? Ok I'm unsure about what will get done this month since I have a project due mid month. Anyhow, have at it.
  17. These two miniatures were speed painted, about 30 minutes total brush time each, then simply glued to a 50mm base and flocked. Its not awesome work, but its fast and effective enough on the game table.
