My experience so far with milliput is it doesn't paint for crap. :)

 

Couple layers of primer would help, but colors just never look the same.

 

Really good job for a speed paint. I would have had lesser quality with double the time!

Excellent job on the speed paint! About the base--did you use kind of mold release agent when you were stamping the base? Did you clean it off before trying to paint it?

I used Vaseline I think, and I sanded it very lightly.  

actually cleaning of the grease did not occur to me.  This was the most trouble I have had with a base - but it was also done quickly.

That's some serious buttcheeks :wow:

 

I didn't see them that way, just as belt pouches, I mean they have buckles and straps...

I'm not helping my case am I. 

 

now I can't unsee

If there was any Vaseline left on the base, that might explain the problems you had with primer/painting.

I have found that unless you plan on washing it, Vaseline is nothing but trouble.  i use beeswax chapstick and it seems to wipe/rub off much better and i can usually prime right over it.  vaseline, however, you gotta wash with soap and water or it hangs out in the sides of grooves and ruins even the best etching primer.  milliput is not my favorite anyway.  apoxy or Aves is about the same price and is a much finer and better product in my opinion.

 

I like the paint job though.  the muzzle on the gnoll is Gnarly.  good job.

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Here are a bunch of Wizkids unpainted minis, speed painted in 1 hour or less spent on each, and no fancy basing either.  The latter ones are based on Reaper bases, I think the Wizkids bases are too thin.
       
      Oxen (2) - SKU WZK73099


       
      Crocodile - WZK90051


       
       
      Heroic Statue - WZK73864



       
       
      Dopplegangers - WZK90019

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!
       

       
      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
       
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.
