77159 Ghasts — speed-paint

Recommended Posts

Great quick paint, but i hear you on the mold lines - those are particularly bad

 

I hate prepping minis - i just want to paint - cleaning up those lines takes way too long and when you get impatient, then it is just frustrating later that you didn't take the time...

 

Maybe when i grow up i'll be more patient ;)

I pulled these guys from my Bones II container last night with much the same idea of being a quick paint.

 

Understand the pain on Bones minis with the mouldlines.  Found a lot of luck with the Citadel Mouldline Remover scraper tool or before that basic knife set like X-Acto sell which you can usually pick up mega cheap in shops.

Those look great; especially for speed paints! I need to play around more with inks.

 

Also, knarthex found something that he sais works great on Bones moldlines. So sort of seam cutter thingy-mabob. If re doesn't chime in, drop him a PM.

I have started using sand paper on Bones for the more PITA mold lines that you can't get with a scalpel. Scrape in one direction and it slices the lines right off. You can also shape it to get into difficult to reach areas. 

 

Great speed paints.

      Since I got a bunch of Bones Ghasts from Bones 2... or was it 3?  Bones 4? Whatever. But I wanted to do something to make them all a little different. So a few simple cuts, and a couple of drops of glue... and I've got some variety in my Ghasts.


      Now to paint them!

      More undead for the table top, because you can never have too many. 
       

       
      These guys bring me to 56 minis painted for the year.

      Simple conversion painted to tabletop quality for the big bad for my D&D group.

      My wife went on a backpacking trip for a few days, and I've been using the time to get working on a bunch of painting projects. This is the first that I've finished. I used them to try pigment fixing for the first time, and it was pretty cool! Most of it got covered up by the grass, but this was intentional, and why I chose to use them for my first try.
       
      I also had some tree stumps from Secret Weapon, and thought that it would be cool to try painting them like white birch trees. I really like the way that they came out, and I'm sure I'll be doing those again sometime.
       
      Enjoy!
