I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors! Do I get bonus points for that?
Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.
In a massive bag of random Bones minis I acquired, I found four of the same type of gnoll warrior. I've decided to take three of them and paint them different quality levels - a speedpaint, my average tabletop level, and the last one, the most detailed - to see the difference in the type of efforts I put into things.
They've all been cleaned and based. Different basing as well, with the last one being a gnoll on a grassy knoll. A knoll gnoll! >>
And the speedpainted one, I'm not priming or gap filling. But the other two I am. I generally like to prime things no matter the material for three reasons -
- To see the details better because the stark white makes it hard to see definition.
- And lastly, because it helps me see how I failed to clean off mold lines as well as I thought I did and take care of it appropriately.
Will get into the nitty gritty of it all tomorrow because tonight is D&D night!

Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew.
This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.
