  1. I'm running an adventure. I'm running an adventure that starts with a ball. A ball full of NPCs. Half are important, half die in the first few sessions. How to keep my players from distinguishing? Paint them all. Aaaaall of them. I have kept myself to less than 3 hours per mini. First, High Strategos Maxillar Pythareus. He's #77200 Sir Conlan The blue and green, while visually dull, will be a recurring theme among the NPCs. The kingdom's heraldry is a gold crown and white lion over a blue and green field.
  2. I'm a bit delayed on these photos, as I got distracted by various things but pictures are finally taken, even if there's apparently some dust on them now >.>;;;; Anyways! Back in February (Feb 18th to be precise, at least according to messages I'd posted on Discord) I decided I wanted to give speed painting a whirl, in order to try and develop a few techniques that I could then apply to my Skaven horde of doom. I also wanted to try out a few different mini holders (generic tylenol, as well as Motrin bottles) to see if I'd prefer something like the Mini Holder, or if I could
  3. Hey all... I have a ... uh, war-band? Army? Regiment? Buncha? anyway, whatever the unit size in Warlord is back when Reaper did the boxes that were 10 regular troops, a lieutenant, and a leader (and a familiar). I don't play Warlord, but I would like to use the minis on the tabletop for AD&D games. While I'm OK with painting the 2 commanders (Nirodiel and Danithal) individually, "character level" if you will, the other elves I would prefer just to get done. Any tips anyone can share? What shade should I start with, etc.
  4. Evening, all, So I've come to realize one of the big weaknesses I have in my technique is base coating. As in it always takes too long. I've started to pay attention to the reasons why and I'm hoping people can offer me some tips to streamline my process and not get hung up on what should be a pretty straightforward step. So I start with the blank mini and I'm immediately trying to figure out a color scheme. I'll usually pick a couple of main colors that offer good contrast, figure I'll use cream and brown colors on the less important accessories and I'm off to the races with my ba
  5. Technically, this is batch 3 - I painted 10 more Malvernian CAVs before this round, but: ADON! Since I have so few Adonese units, relatively speaking, I figured I'd dive in and knock out the whole force at once. I managed to pick up those APCs on the cheap, so I am very tempted to add some infantry, but the rumor mill says there may be some new space-elfy units coming up soon, so I'm pumping my brakes. Paint job: Speed paint. Pic quality: rushed. Still, hope this helps people get motivated to paint!
  6. Forgive me if any of these questions are prominently answered somewhere. I've been reading through a lot of materials here on the site and forums and learned a lot, but a few things I still didn't find answers on. What is liner? I've seen several paints called liner but I have no idea what that means or how it's different from the other paints. I understand washes and drybrushing, what they're good for and how to do them, but can somebody explain glazing to me? What should I be looking for in a glaze, and when should I use one? How should I use one? When would one use an MSP HD pai
  7. Here we are, a new month and a new (or old) set of goals to achieve. I'm going to try to be realistic here with how fast I paint, but there are things I have to get done by deadlines. Catacombs Barbarian - Want to get him done by the 15th so that I can enter him into a contest ran by Catacombs. Done! Figure Exchange (on the side) with a friend coming to Vegas next month. - Starting on it Figure Exchange (on the side) with another friend, this is a 2-figure vignette. - Haven't started Work on the 54mm Figure for the 54mm+ challenge. - Didn't get a chance Work on my brother's VERY late
  8. I apologize for the picture quality, snapped with my cell phone in the main gaming hall. This was the piece I got to paint in the 5:00 round of the Wyrd Minis Speed Paint competition. 45 minutes of brush time, ten colors of paint, three brushes, all 0s.... It was an interesting challenge, not unlike painting at work at lunch time. That turned out to be good practice. If anybody is interested, I can redo the shot tomorrow with a dedicated camera.
  9. A new month and time to paint some new minis Here is my placeholder Dwarf with Hammer Two Hobgoblins Three Saprolings Female Druid buckyball
  10. I would consider myself far more of a gamer than a painter. In fact, I got in on the Reaper Kickstarter specifically because I saw so much potential in their miniatures for use in -that- tabletop game. As a gamer, I therefore tend to paint for the tabletop rather than aspiring towards some of the amazing work I've been browsing through on these forums over the past few days. That's not to say that I don't keep telling myself that if I actually managed to force myself to sit and work on the same mini for days or weeks at a time that I might not be able to achieve something appealing...but there
  11. So I returned from a month long trip in Spain this evening to find a Giant and strange box sitting on my bed. After opening it carefully, thinking it must be a bomb or decapitated head, I was overjoyed to find it was none other than my Bones Kickstarter! REJOICE! After sorting through the sheer rediculous number of miniatures, I realized that I'm going to need some sort of motivation to paint this beastly assortment of minis, and the best way to do that is to showcase my work on the internet as I try to tackle, as quickly as possible, all the Minis I got. The plan is to speed paint them u
  12. Hello! I was just doing some lazy dry brushing and started talking out loud to myself, and then the pressing question entered my mind. Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere. Cheers.
  13. Ok I finished nothing last month. Let's see if I can beat that record this month. With Millenium Con I may actually knock some stuff out.
  14. Well finally got these little fellows done. They are speed painted (yes I am working on some minis other than speed painting) and I've only taken a photo of one. They are so small though that my available camera can barely take a picture of them! So here is the 1 workable shot I managed and I'll see if I can get a better shot tomorrow night.
