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.

      A thread dedicated to Work In Progress pix of those minis that have sacrificed their surface area to the never ending the quest to find ways of slapping paint on without it looking like absolute rubbish.

      This was a quick speed paint, less than an hour. And I think the Night Spectre (Reaper Bones SKU 77099) turned out looking awesome for the amount of effort put in.

      It's that time of year again.  I wasn't able to paint over Memorial Day weekend, so I've bumped it to the next available date. Those of us in the US have a 3 day holiday weekend coming up (July 3-5) and I am challenging you all to join me in a massively multiplayer paint binge!   Everyone is welcome to join, even if you can only paint for one day. 
       
      The object is to finish as many figures as possible. Quantity counts over quality.  All manufacturers are fair game, posting of WIPs and finished pieces is strongly encouraged. You may prep and prime figures before hand, in fact I recommend it. Get out all those new Bones,  old primed or half painted figures and get ready to finish them! 
       
      Got an army to finish, need to move some half painted terrain off your desk, want to tackle that dragon for the big figure contest?  Stuck at home because of the virus? Shelf of shame looking a little crowded?  This is the time.  All manufacturers, and 3d print jobs are fair game. 
       
      Prep and prime your figures now so they are all ready to go Friday morning (or if you're taking a 4 day weekend, Thursday night). Have your camera ready to share photos.  Photos strongly encouraged!  You have until midnight the evening of the 6th to post your progress and be counted in the total. 
       
      For this holiday there is a special extra challenge: paint with the colors red, white, and blue.  You do not have to use all 3 colors at once or have a patriotic theme. 
       
      Painting begins at 00:01 July 3 and ends 23:59 July 6, in your time zone.  
       
      Those of you who video chat are welcome to set up channels.

      This was a super quick project.  DH printed the model on Tuesday and I painted it in about 6 hours on Wednesday. So <48 hours from liquid resin to finished model. 
       
      I intentionally wanted to work with vibrant colors and picked jade green, gothic crimson and golden yellow as my starting paints.  The figure is slightly modified, a crossbow on her hip broke, and I shaved the remains off.  I added the fangs with paint, I think the figure was intended to be an elf.

      Recently I bought a bottle of the brown GW contrast paint (Fyreslayer Flesh), and decided to try it out on this large Reaper metal bear (SKU 14452).  It took less than an hour to finish, so color me impressed.  I have all the Army painter quickshades, I am going to try some of those soon on other speed paints, just to see if I can get similar results.
      I painted the bear white first, then used the contrast paint, in some places I had to spot fix areas where it t go into every crevasse.  Then I painted the mouth, eyes claws and base. and finished it off with some pre-made plant matter.
