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.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
