Welcome to the Slow As Molasses Painting Team. We will mail out your 2015 membership card by January 2017 guaranteed.

I will be looking forward to that membership card...because I truly qualify to be a member of such a painting team! 

 

I have never (speed painted) a figure in my life...wouldn't really know how to go about it or if I even cared to do so. As a general rule, it takes me about 5 to 7 days to paint a single (28mm) miniature figure (working about 3 to 4 hours per sitting on the figure)...about twice as long...if the figure is a serious, commission or competition figure.

 

So I am (Slow As Molasses...In The Winter Time)...when it comes to painting a miniature figure!

Yeah. As a general rule, I figure two or three days of painting for a tabletop level figure, and several days for anything for display purpose. I in many ways envy those who paint quick and well, as I would not have near the backlog of figures sitting waiting if I where one, but at the same time, I enjoy the hobby too much to rush.

Very anxious to see these projects finished.

If the great one above allows me the time and the creek don't rise... (or a saying something like that)...they will be be completed sometime in 2015!

 

But since I am in the midst of my bayou project...it will be some time in the " faarrr " future of 2015!...I am the type who works on one project at a time!...I tried doing multi project work, but for me it caused a loss of thought and feeling and being one with/for a/the given project...so now I only work on single projects.

If I'm using all my free time to paint, I can usually finish a single human mini in 2 weeks. But last year it took me 8 months to paint 2 human-sized minis...

CashWiley;

 

When you say (2 human sized minis)...are you saying that they were 1 to 1 scale??? :blink:  

 

I have never taken that long to paint a (28mm) figure!...I have taken that long to build a diorama (many times)...but not a figure or two!...You have great patience my friend!  :rolleyes:

 

I am about the same (5 to 7 days) to paint a single (28mm) miniature (human) figure...working about the same number of hours per sitting!

 

I have seen some of your painted miniature figures and really like them...your miniature figure painting work is so much superior to mine!

Oh my... those orcs look distinctly uncomfortable. Unlike the ogre who are appears to be of two minds about the pin placement. One calmly accepting and one... in some state of surprise.

Thank you for your comments and remarks...I found them to be most amusing in a delightful manner!  ::P:  ::P:  ::P:

He means 28mm scale figures, but at the rate at which he paints, they might as well be true 1:1 scale humans! BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!  :lol:

      "And some good news here. We're preparing the new Kickstarter right now, called "Sitting Folks". Yes, we want to create a lot of miniatures in sitting poses. The launching date is about the middle of November. Yes, we're still painting rewards from the previous campaign, but the new one will not affect the process." -- from the Dwarven Forge Gaming Talk forum!

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...

      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.
