GenCon Reaper Speed Paints: Show Them Off.

Recommended Posts

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?

First up, one of the classic figures from Dark Sword. This was not exactly a speed paint, as I did it at the paint and take table while waiting for my speed paint round to begin. There is a little over an hour in her. Normally I do not repaint my speed paints, just touch up damage, but I think I will clean these up a lot before I seal them.

This is also Dark Sword, and what I painted for my round. It placed 2nd and got me into the final Sunday.

I'd like to point out that orange, olive green, and dark brown were not colors supplied to the contestants.

Sunday I arrived at the Speed paint finals early so I could hassle a friend who had made it to the round before mine. And then a couple people didn't show up so Debby twisted my arm and made me take one of the empty places.

 

I don't know what the hell this is. I must have painted it the wrong faction colors, because every one of the winners was green.

For my Dark Sword final, we were given this:

I did a lot of color mixing on this one, too. The tan was the only brown we were given, I think the green was much darker, like a forest green, and I also mixed the greys and pale blue for the metals. Did not get looked at twice.

The Green Witch took about an hour fifteen. I have practiced and participated in speed painting for about ten years now. I started with the kitchen timer and a set of basic colors and just kept challenging myself to do it better every time. The second figure took 45 minutes, that's pretty standard for a speed paint. The two I did in the finals rounds we had an hour fifteen to work.

 

I think the orange was a mix of fire red and sun yellow (Reaper paints). I wasn't putting a lot of attention into the labels.

Amazing work Inarah! I have no idea what that third thing is either.

 

Does anyone know if Reaper has similar events at PAX? This will be the first time I've been at a con with them around. Looking forward to it!

I've only been to PAX East so I can only speak as to that venue. Reaper had a great paint and take but there was no speed paint event. In fact I'm pretty sure that Reaper had the only painting event at the con.

      So, It is that time of year again! When the winds of flatulence waft the delecate aromas of nerdfunk into ones nostrils! The Convention season is here! And I won't be going to one! At least not a big one. So no GenCon for me :( But I'm still supporting the DDM Guild events there! So, I'm sharing my WiP pictures here.
       

       

       
      The "Thundercorn" as I am calling it, is nearly done. just a bit of touch ups and the base to go.
       

       

       
      The Pit Fiend just has the base coats on at this time.
       

       

       

       

       
      The White Wyrmling has the second layer of shading started.
       

       

       
      This is a Scaladar. I think it is supposed to be a robot scorpion that shoots lightning. I have a rather ambitious plan for it though. It has a bunch of cracks in its armor and joints. I'm painting those cracks to look like it has bright crackling lightning inside it! Then I plan to paint the armor a bronze or brass.

      Bit of a kitbash here. The chap with the spear is from Alternative Armies. The others are a mix of Warlord orc heads (previously Wargames Factory) with two frostgrave arms and bodies,  one Oathmark goblin, and one Oathmark dwarf heavy infantryman.
       
      Have managed to get a really quick palette going for speed painting orcs. I prime them by brush with Vallejo dark grey primer, then use Scale 75 black metal for the armour, Vallejo hammered copper for decoration and metal details, dark red for cloth and dark brown for leather. The skin is Vallejo Model Colour Heavy Warm Grey. Then the whole model gets a black ink wash and I pick out teeth etc in light grey. These models took about 90 minutes altogether, ex drying time.

      Well, the story's seven or eight years in the making, but we finally got married.

      Now we just need to get Gene Van Horne to sculpt a bride and groom mouseling. Or a zombie bride and groom mouseling. Or a bride and groom mouseling with chainsaws...

      As I said on my Saproling's topic, I had today off, so...  I decided that in addition to the saprolings, I'd knock out some tabletop quality ghouls. They were already assembled and primed, so the first thing was to paint the undead flesh. I used Vampire Shadow for their sickly skin. It didn't quite match the ghoul I'd painted before, but it was close enough. I sadly didn't always take good notes...

      After that I decided that as these were primarily going to be gaming ghouls, and not for a unified force for Kings of War, they'd each get their own clothing color: Red, Green, Blue, Tan, and Dark Brown. I used Rusty Red, Muddy Olive, Rich Indigo, Desert Stone, and Ruddy Flesh. The eyes were all painted with Walnut Brown, as were the spikes sticking out of them. 


      Then I washed them all with a mix of 4 parts sepia wash and 1 part black wash. 

      A little bit of highlighting with the base clothing color, then it was time to paint the bases black, and then flock them! Oh, and a bit of watered down rusty red around the mouth.

       
      Oh, and aged pewter on the spikes and the cleaver. 
       

      Looking good for such quick work.

      Here's a little quick-paint mimic that I finished up this week. I love this mini, and I want to paint another later, when I have more time.
       
      We've been completely snowed in here in Seattle, and you'd think that would mean I'd get more done, right? No. With the husband working from home and the entire schedule in shambles, I've had a hard time managing any painting at all. But the Jan/Feb Challenge deadline is approaching, and I have to get a couple more done...!
