Okay I think I'll take the plunge. 10 years of not painting anything, so I will set a very modest goal. I have one metal orc of indeterminate origin that I need to finish as a coach for the husband's Blood Bowl team. It's going to see heavy handling so I won't be doing anything super awesome like I see a lot of photos for here, but I think it's a good (re)starter project.

Still have the carry-over modelling project from last month. Also will be working on finishing up the remaining GW Dark Elf models I have, and get back to painting up my 28mm Late Roman army. Oh, of course I couldn't resist and just started a NEW 15mm Marian Roman army...

Carrying over the Ogre, havn't sat down to paint for a couple of weeks mostly due to preparing for a weekend long trip to London last week. Now that's over I should be getting back to it this weekend. Hopefully will clear him off by next weekend and want to get on to some experimenting with different metal techniques before I paint anything proper again.

I've been a busy Old Man...for an Old man that is. I've been knocking out pieces for my Spooky Forest Project & trying to populate the place:

This month, I'm working on Reich of the Dead figures. 8 GIs converted to carry shotguns, 'cause I can :devil: , 7 Kroid Riflemen, and six cultists standing around a summoning circle. And that Kraken from last month that I finally finished trimming, but which is still taunting me, daring me to paint!

I'm hoping to finish my Purple Worm scenic base this weekend and then get started on another mini straight away. My goal for this month is three with scenic bases!

Might as well throw my hat into the ring, currently I have a couple mini's to finish.

bones Gnoll and that blasted cave troll that i can't decide on a skin tone for.

Isabella Locke.

the guard and rat from the learn to paint kit.

and finally I am going to try my hand at some of those suggestions for improving my lox jarg mini.

 

I also have a handful of the ddm reapers that I plan on redoing for practice, these are our generic beasties and I'm thinking a repaint and a #1-12 on the base on each one for combat purposes.

November...I'd like to polish off L2PK 1,2 and maybe 4 this month. If I could finish 5 and get some work on 3 I'd really be jamming, because that would free me up for the real painting: Dreadball and Sedition Wars in December.

I figure I should jump back in the mix if I am going to hit my painting goal for the year and get all of my minis ready to game with. This month's focus is finishing my first Pathfinder module's worth of minis and getting a few of my friends cowboys completed. I also should really finish up my Ogre WIP piece and post up all those photos I am hoarding on my camera.

 

 

 

I should finish about 12 minis this month doing that. Maybe more.

 

 

 

So far: 1 Mini complete

My goal for the month: Paint something, anything. I don't care if it's a CAV, a Battlemech, or a Barrow Wight, or even a Bone; I need to get into the habit of painting regularly again; I miss the meditative zen that comes with it.

It's a three day weekend, and the weather is supposed to be gorgeous. I'm going to try to knock out my Monster Squad SOBAH list; wish me luck! Contrary to the models I've been working on lately, I'm going back to my old style for these guys - basecoats, dip, matte and call it a night. True tabletop painting!

 

Here's the starting point:post-8164-0-08068700-1352494016_thumb.jpg

 

Two Bones Minotaur of the Maze

Two Bones Bugbear Warrior (1 mostly done)

One Bones Ogre Champion (mostly done)

One Bones Gnoll Warrior

 

So, shouldn't be too much for me. ::):

Finished the GIs and Kroids today and sealed the cultists and their display base. Been a really good day today.

But the Kraken is still staring at me...... :wacko:

      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.

      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 just DIY something, as my current solutions tends to wind up causing my right paw to cramp up after a while, and maneuvering the miniature isn't always the easiest.  Such was partially inspired by the awesome thread @ManvsMini did about custom holders and also a desire to see whether it would be worth splurging on a Hobby Holder with Handle Mod 1.
       
      Short version is that the Motrin bottles won out, although the generic tylenol bottle was handy because it has a lid that spins more easily...  So technically the Hobby Holder would be able to do both, AND give me a brush rest.
       
      Anyways, I'm rambling in a show-off thread....  Originally I'd wanted to do just the one mini, but quickly wound up putting two up so I could directly compare the two bottle types I had on hand.  I think I set my goal at "finish a single mini within two hours", and I'd say I pulled that off, since I managed to do two in 2h10min...  So needless to say, rather happy about that!  Oh, it also morphed into some sort of "less than twelve colours used" and "you can only use one 10-well palette, and once a colour is in one, it's committed" challenges too, both of which I was successful with (11 paints total used, including washes, and I sure wound up using all ten wells too).  Not quite sure why I do such, but eh, it was for fun, and I had fun, which is the most important aspect of it all in my eyes!
       

      ^So first up, obvious is Sir Forscale, aka Garrick the Bold...  In Bones.
       

      ^And then Juliette, Female Sorceress, also in Bones.
       
       
      And since I can't resist, yup, all done with size 0 brushes, because that's pretty much all I had on hand back then.
       
       
      So, I have to playfully ask myself, what did I learn, besides the obvious aspect of a fox loves orange and black?  Uhm...  Good question.  I know I did a decent amount of drybrushing, but I also can't even remember if I used any metallic paints or not as it's been a while >.>;;;;

      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.
    • By GuyWithCoolBackpack
      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 base coat, except that this almost immediately falls apart as I start trying to parse the mini into these handful of different colors.  Let's say I want to give a guy a green shirt and dark red pants.  I figure I'll use black for the boots, brown for his belt, no problem.  Except that I'll start painting and realize that his pants have a stripe down the side, or a fringe.  
       
      Well I've already tried to settle on a palette, but maybe I don't want to use any of those colors for the stripe. Okay, maybe I'll jut use an bright red stripe, that's a diferent color, add it to my pallete.  And then I notice the belt has a pouch on it, and I don't want to use the same color for the belt and the pouch, so I need to figure out a different color for that. And then I notice he has a belt buckle that's made of a different material, and now I have entirely too many colors and I don't like tho look of the pallete anymore...I'm just trying to get on a base coat but I'm also trying to figure out how to paint this thing at the same time, and considering that I only get an hour or 2 to paint a night, the process can take days.  
       
      So does anyone have any thoughts?  Other than just stealing color schemes wholesale from the back of the box (something I'm not too good for) can anyone help me figure out how to separate the "what paint goes where" problem from the "get the basic colors on the model" problem?

      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!
