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.

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.
