I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU FORGOT ABOUT..... oh wait, you didn’t. But what about this whole poem titled “Forgot About Ted” that I wrote, based on the timeless classic “Forgot About Dre” by Dr. Dre ft. Eminem? :down:

 

They look really great, friend! You should be very proud already! Enjoy your meeting, have a nice rest and then GET BACK TO WORK! ::P:

I am in awe at how quickly you can work and how good it looks when doing a speed paint. This is awesome!

 

I am as well, because it sure feels like in the time it takes me to do a single 60mm base, OneBoot has already painted an entire adventurer! O_o

No joke, in the time it took OneBoot to speedpaint two or three of these, I managed to paint one figure. And by “paint”, I mean “paint his major clothing areas”. And by that, I mean “basecoat”.

 

And it still won’t end up looking anywhere near as awesome as any of these. Truly impressive work!

I started painting along in support of your challenge, but I'm only doing Andriessa.  :)

It is highly likely that I added wrong, but I came up with a total of 20.75 hours, which divided by 5 makes it 4.15 hours per adventurer. Ish. Which I think is a very respectable amount of time for a high quality speed paint!

Current soundtrack: 80's rock songs! :bday:

 

Time for...METALLICS! :bday:

First I had fun with some colored metallics working on the non-coin stuff:

Next will be coins! Here's the colors I plan to use, I may use more. I've got so many options, after all. :bday:

The nice people on the Hangouts convinced me not to keep making my life harder, and just make all the coins gold. So now they're all Pirate Gold!

And it looks just fine. I tried a Sepia wash, and it just made them dull without adding definition, so I'm not going to bother! Because once the whole thing is assembled, you honestly can't hardly see the treasure anyways:

Yes, Dragon's arm is randomly just laying there. Because reasons.

 

So I'm calling the treasure done so I can move on to more important things! :bday: Which should really be the dragon, but given that my hand-eye coordination is...less than optimal, I think I'll just slather Red Brick on terrain things until I pass out on the keyboard. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

Oh, and just for Guindy: Where's George Washington? :bday::lol:

And yes, I totally did paint George Washington's head on one of those coins. Because I'm nothing if not dedicated to my art. :upside:

hoaefgjklshnkl;msdfgjknnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn *snork* :blink:  Well, that was a lovely nap. Now, where was I? :upside:

 

Ah yes, terrain! Well, I gave Red brick a try (since, y'know, I'm wanting to paint the terrain up like brick and all), but the result was disappointingly...purple. Also very similar to the Red liner already on the things:

4a7Bx5tl.jpg

 

Basically no difference at all. :P

 

So, I looked over my various warm orange-y browns and tried out Chestnut Brown:

OgYytZUl.jpg

 

Yep, now THAT'S the look I want! :bday:

 

What follows is me proceeding to scumble Chestnut Brown on ALL THE THINGS. ALL OF THEM. YES, EVEN THAT.

 

To assist me, I knew that with the forced retirement of Trevor, there was only one other brush I could trust with a job like this. Travis, whom we last saw bristles-down in my jar of rinse water following my Ma'al Drakar challenge, because I was so ashamed of the abuse I subjected him to on the wings. [Flashback picture!]

lO3gnTLl.jpg

 

I resurrected him and gave him his marching orders, which was to drybrush all of the terrain. He's totally cool with it, right Travis?

 

*WHEEZE*

vDgTOIOl.jpg

 

That's the spirit! :bday:

 

i8pGHYPl.jpg

That's where we're at currently; just got the big round base and the dragon's base left.

 

Now you may be wondering why I don't perch the adventurers on the terrain to make it more interesting. The reason I'm not is because they are currently located...

TyhKBPDl.jpg

 

...on that bookshelf waaaay across the room. Because I currently don't trust myself not to knock them into an exploding paint bottle or something equally atrocious. :lol:

 

Right-o, Travis, back to work! That terrain ain't gonna paint itself, you know! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

      The banshee or female ghost is the one I think worked the best.
      Here I only drybrushed very very lightly with the Dungeon Slime, just to accent the raised details Then I used old Citadel Turquoise Glaze from the top to the waist, easying up a bit the further down I went with the brush. After that I used Old Citadel Blue Ink on and around the head and shoulders.  I used Orange Ink on the face and exposed flesh bits in front and wicking most of it away after a short while so that just a hint was left. I did some further light drybrushing with dungeon slime then pure white at the ends of the wispy trails. The wood was done in opaques, whatever browns, bones and greys were on my palette at the time, and given a dark grey wash. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.
       
       
      My schedule is increasingly packed these days, so painting time is getting scarce. These are even more speedpainted than usual, just minutes spent on each with some drying time in between.
      The Ghost Pirate subset that was added to the Bones 4 core set during the last day of the kickstarter campaign.

      These are made in translucent green material.
      The key to painting translucents are first to undercoat with clear varnish. I used Vallejo matte varnish through my airbrush. The varnish lets the paint adhere to the plastic and avoids a lot of grief with paint beading or running away from where you want it to go. Then paint with predominantly translucent paint such as inks.
       
      With these I tried a few different variations on how to paint them. First I gave them all a thin wash of Citadel Hexwraith Flame (the Nighthaunt green technical paint), making sure to wick up any pooling. This wash helped create some contrast, which in turn let me actually see some of the details.
      When dry, I used Vallejo Dark Grey Model Wash on the heads, exposed bone bits and other details on most of them. After this was dry, I went in with Reaper Dungeon Slime, a bright and pale green, with high density pigment. (Which really is not ideal for translucents, as this is a really opaque paint.) But I wanted to try this out. The results ...varied.
      I decided to quickly be done with them and covered the base in my autumn flock mix as usual.
      A little to quickly it seems, as there still is flock and static grass in unsightly places as seen in the photos. I will be removing said offending matter as soon as I can be bothered.

      This one I drybrushed more heavily (and also globbed some straight on) with the dungeon slime, and again with DS mixed with white ending lightly with pure white at the tips. The bottles were carfylly stained with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade wash, wiped off and then once again. The face and chest was the Dark Grey wash, and also some Reikland Fleshshade in the mouth-area. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.

      Here I went much more heavily in with the Dungeon Slime, and further mixes with white, and pure white at the edges. The head, chest, hands and sabre was given a dark grey wash. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris. The dead man's chest was done in different browns and black metal.

      This one is really off centre because of the base. I have simply glued the integral bases to the 30mm rounds, which keeps the original off-centre feel of the model.
      Here is a simple drybrush with the dungeon slime, then with white. Dark Gray wash on the face, hair, hands and sabre. The sabre was then given a thin coat of Scalecolor Black Metal painted on while the grey wash was still wet, which resulted in an excellent see-through metal effect. Eyes in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.

      Here I have tried edge-highlighting, that is painting the edges directly with the brush and not drybrushing or similar other techniques. I am not really satisfied with the results, but live and learn. It would seem I have been a bit heavy handed or even missed what I have been aiming at here and there. The other bits are painted in the same way as above, apart fromt he monkey on his back that was first done in brown ink, but did not work. So I went over it with two tones of brown paint instead. Eye in Vallejo Magic blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris.
      Oh, and I used black ink on the eyepatch. The boathook was not painted with dark gray wash first, but just edge highlighted with Scalecolor Amethyst Metal.This makes it more ethereal I think.
      The shaft was given a stripe of dark brown.
