Rubegon’s Booby-themed Reaper Bones 3 Deep Ones Speed Paint!

Recommended Posts

The extra time is well spent. The new Fishy Fellows look good, but the ones you took your time with look TERRIFICNICE WORK on the former, VERY WELL DONE on the latter!

Great choice of colors.  The pink is nice and fleshy, and the drow nipple purple makes it just weird enough.

Thanks @Inarah!  The colors were close enough to Kuo Toaish ones, and I’ve been looking for a reason to use them.  The contrast is a bit flat, but I’m pretty with how they turned out.  The GW shades worked really well with these I think.

 

It was a bit hard to make myself stop and varnish them, but I’m pretty happy with the result for the time investment.  I’m thinking of playing with GW contrast paints to increase my speed paint throughput for gaming minis.  It really is great having painted enemies, but it wasn’t going to happen the way I’ve been doing that.

 

Having said that, I *am* very pleased with my purple 1st stringers @malefactus and Commander @Glitterwolf!  ::D:

 

Here they all are used in our session today in anger!  :angry:

Fantastic speed paint - inspirational to my current painting goals - you got them to the table looking great - the purple shades are my favorite.

The purple ones were not quite so speedy!  I still mostly just did basecoats and washes, but spent a lot more time on the details.  I was very happy with how they turned out!

 

The pink ones were my first real “knock ‘em out in a single session, come hell or high water” speed paints.

 

I’m motivated to do more like this now because I think I could get even faster and better after this!

 

Give it a shot - painting fast is a very different skill than trying to paint perfection, and it’s a nice refreshing change of pace.

 

I’ve got a 28mm “try to paint it perfect” WIP,  my first huge monster resin sculpt WIP, and a few TTRPG minis going at the same time, and it’s nice to flip from one to the other depending on what I’m in the mood for and what skills I want to work on.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.
