  1. The Others - 7 Sins: Lust:
  2. So as I've been getting back into the swing of painting more frequently (as opposed to occasionally dabbling), I've been mucking about with some of these new-fangled teknologies you crazy kids have been inventing (Why, in my day, we painted with Testor's and we liked it, by gum!). One thing I got my hands on was a jar of Army Painter's Quickshade - the soft tone, and I figured I'd see how it works. I've been working on a couple of the Reaper Bones trolls (bought specifically to test primed vs. unprimed painting), and an old Chainmail minotaur skeleton that were both close to complete (or so I thought. So, I opened up the can, and away we go! Thing One and Thing Two got blooped right into the can, using a pair of bent-nose pliers I have for such purposes. Unfortunately, there really isn't anywhere in this apartment to really shake the minis off - I was using the cover from a stack of CD-Roms as a shake hood, but the results were less than awesome. I tried brushing some of the quickshade off, but... I actually really like the way Thing One's plague boil ended up - it's really creepy and icky looking, and I decided to leave it glossy and wet-looking. Other than that, however, it's definitely way too much quickshade on too many parts of the mini, in both cases - although not quite as bad as I first thought. So, learning my lesson (I hope?) on Mervin the Minotaur, I used a brush and tried to brush on the quickshade instead - with, I think, much better performance, although if I'd known how much it was going to stain the existing topcoat, I likely would have been more aggressive with my use of ghost white? I've decided they are, basically, almost done - I want to do some touch up on Thing One's base (where the quickshade apparently lifted up some of the not-quite-as-dry-as-I-thought paint?) and some general touch up and maybe a little extra highlighting and drybrushing on Mervin. But these have both gotten two coats of Reaper brush-on sealant, and are pretty much good for tabletop, I guess?
