What about something like crossed brushes?

Crossed brushes would be cool too.

I like crossed brushes too.

 

Edit: Just looked at the calendar and I may be at the parents that weekend. I'll probably try for the weekend after.

We are a little less than 2 weeks out.  Is everybody getting excited for this event?  Have you decided what you are going to paint?  Me?  I have a bunch of scenery for a commission I am doing, but that will not be whole time.  I also have some reaper ogres that I want to get started on and then there are some infinity and War of Kings figs I want to start also.  If it goes like last year I will differently have a slow time from about 3am to 5am so will be ready to prime and clean at that time.  

 

How about you?

I have stuff on deck to paint, but the chances of painting are 50/50, for various reasons. I probably won't know until it happens.

Just put in a request for the Monday after off so I don't have to worry about pesky real life.

That is a clever move.  I should do that as well.... hmmmmm....  maybe I am getting sick.... cough....  definitely getting sick, but it is a very slow moving virus....  should peak on the Monday after...... I have a great immune system so I should be able to fight it off by the next day though....

I better mark my calendar. Not sure yet what I'll be painting but I have plenty on my deck right now. Can we start the night before? I know it's just for fun either way.

Looks like the original post didn't get edited but we decided that your marathon can span any part of the weekend.

Crossed brushes over a stop watch?

I probably need to commit to this just to get anything done. :unsure:

 

EDIT: Sundays are no good for me, but I think I can commit if I start sometime Friday and work through Saturday.  Egads, I have to get so much homework done early this week.  :zombie:

I like that idea.

 

I'll just take it to mean 24 hours of total time painting for me over the weekend. I have to work Saturday morning and have a social commitment Saturday afternoon, but otherwise should be pretty available, so will get what I can get Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday. I have a whole slew of miniatures prepped finally (seems like priming the metal ones and basing everything takes me forever). I have 11 Bones townspeople, 8 Bones mummies, 2 beetle swarms, 3 ticks, and an ogre chieftan all primed and ready to go. Hope I can make some good progress!

Yes, it can be spread out. Very few of us can stay awake for 24-36 hours with ill effects let alone paint well for its entirety.

Well for one's own skill. No amount of sleep deprivation will make me paint as well as Proctor.  :;):
