77346 Barrow Warden 1 Speed paint and dip

Recommended Posts

I decided to do this Barrow Warden with a speed paint followed by the dip method. 

 

I painted him him with a mixture of Army Painter and Reaper paints. I then dipped him into the Army Painter Quickshade "Strong" Tone. Shook him off a few times and then let dry. I still need to apply anti shine to him but am quite pleased with the results. 

 

I dont see see the quick shade replacing my GW washes but it's a nice alternative to when I want to get something done quickly.

 

thanks for looking. Comments and critiques are always appreciated.

This is how I'm considering my zombies, there's just sooooo many.

I feel ya. I have an Undead army for Kings of War and probably will go with the dip method to get them churned out fast. I would think zombies would look great with this quick shade.

Looks great. I am waiting to paint mine but the #@$%! sword needs to straighten out first. I am so very close after many re-bending attempts.

As you can see, mine still has a slight bend. I got it that far after a couple attempts and then just threw my hands up and decided to move on.....lol.

I find the quick shade works really well not using the dip method.  It is a bit stronger than the GW washes I agree.  I try to apply quickshade sparingly or a little diluted with water to fill the gaps and errors and then go over it with a dry brush off my highlight color when done and it take the edge off the shine.

I like the effect of quick shade (well Polyshades for us cheapskates).  I brush it on and think it does a better job of not staining the higher areas than washes do.

 

I don't like the cleanup afterwards and I somehow think that it's harder to get rid of the shine than it really should be.

Yeah the cleanup sucks. I hate having to use paint thinner to clean the brush mostly for the stink factor.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
       
      Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.
