Everything here is incredible, i cannot do half as well in twice the time!


Especially striking is the NMM blue armor contrasted with the flat blue and white of the shield tabard and banner - beautiful


I like all of the restrained color palettes here, but especially the blue on blue

are you sure you only spent 2.5 hours or less on these gems????  looks like 2.5 days possibly weeks to me!


These are some of the best painted  examples I have seen of these bones mini's !


You should post it to the inspiration gallery for all to see!

Thanks for comments!

I was trying in this project to speed up my painting skills for few reasons.

1. I started painting with glazes too early in my painting career and because of that I didn't learn how to properly make contrast on miniature. Its easier, in my opinion, to learn that through layering with no translucent paint. I thought I had to use only glazes to be a good painter and I have to put aside dirty techniques like drybrushing, washing and painting with not dilluted paint.
For example I have here doctus festus from gw which i painted mostly with glazes. It took me 20 hours to bring him to that state and he is not very impressive:(. And in my opinion its connected to my glazes because i made some nice transitions and I was too afraid to use darker shades because they could destroy my previous work. And many other times I spent too much time on miniature because i was too careful. 










On bones I used drybrush, washing, layering and only a little bit of glazing (blades and some faces), and it has sped up everything in great proportion.  And I was more courageous with contrast and it was nice lesson to see how far I can go. Maybe in free time i will make short tutorial how to paint bones quickly.

2. From year to year i have less time for hobby, I need to paint faster to do few miniatures a month to have some hobby routine. 

3. Sometimes i have to paint something, finish it, see results - its very stress relieving for me.
