Astral Mauler - #2976-original design

Hi all,

I was determined to speed paint a Reaper miniature so I prepped and painted this guy in a one night marathon session. I restricted myself to a limited classic color palate to make things easier. I think it will make a fine addition to my collection of unusual monsters.

It seems like the miniature itself might be a little controversial - it was discontinued under mysterious circumstances.

All in a night's work?. Uncanny!

 

I was pretty surprised myself. last year I made a conscious effort to work on my speed painting skills - i simply have too many miniatures and too little time to spend weeks on each one. If I am going to make even the tiniest dent in the pile o' minis, or get anything done with a 4yo and a 5yo hanging on my every movement it needs to be fast. while I didn't finish record numbers of pieces last year I definitely got faster - maybe enough to keep me going. apparently its working.

 

my painting day was followed by some sun and a lucky chance to snap some photographs - everything worked out as well as I could hope. if the weather holds Ill try and get some pictures of the other things I have been working on.

 

The base color for this guy is Dragon blue MSP HD with some Breonne blue msp, rich indigo msp HD, and blue ink for richness. the highlights were done with mixes of the blues and solid white or splintered bone. The eyes are mostly fireball orange MSP HD.

Fantastic job on him/her/it!!!

 

 

He looks great, love the color and the paint job. I believe this model was discontinued because it ate up the molds much much faster than other models.

I'm pretty sure that this was the case. I remember reading something to that effect, anyway.

      Hello forum family,
      wanna show you this very nice mini; I know, I'm late (or extremely early...), but I was busy with a bust and did not found the time to paint anything else :P
      This is a speedpaint (for my standard) I've painted her mostly wet-blending; my attempt was to create a creepy looks but not too much (she is still a Christmas ghost!).
      I'm pretty happy of her, nothing special, but it took me a couple of hour to paint her so I'm satisfied :)



      Hope you'll like her as much as I do :P
      Every C&C is, as always, more than welcome!
      Oh, and... Merry Xmas!  :°D

      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.

      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.

      Hello forum Family, Ciccio is back with more awful minis! 
      I'm trying to get the Blood Rage minis painted ATM, and well... no problem with big guys like the troll or the frost giant, but the smaller minis... O  M  G!
      The worst sculpt I had to paint in my life... really CMON?
      Anyway, is a game, I don't pretend the super quality, and do not need to paint every mini perfectly...
      Let's get it started:

      the whole party (sorry for the bad pic...):


      The Valkyrie:

       
      The Soldier of Hel:

       
      The Volur Witch:


      The Dark Elf:

       
      The Dwarf Chieftan:


      As you can see nothing special, tabletop standard.
      Not so "Speed painting" cause of the lack of detail/bad sculpt, anyway from 1 hour (fro the Witch) to 4 hours (the Valkyrie).
      Hope you'll like them. 
      C&C welcome as always.
      Thank you!

      We were basically on apocalypse watch at work today, so I decided to take my mind off it for a little while at lunch with a speedpaint (60 minutes). Over the weekend I prepared a handful of Ral Partha individuals, inspired by my recent trip to Cincycon, so I brought a group of four with me today.
       
      I tried this guy as a warm-up; it’s been a while since I painted a true 25 metal individual. I wanted to use lighter colors because I usually tend towards dark.  I hoped that the Heart Throb Pink over the Cinnamon Red would look faded.  It needs more blending to stand up to be photographed at this level of enlargement.  I’m also not sure what the extra layer of cloth at the right (but not left) wrist is suppose to be, so I painted it grey. 
       
      I will post a picture of him based, hopefully tomorrow.
