My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago. 2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter. I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.
I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest, so I guess they are alright.
It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see? Sloooooow.)
But the whole unit is finally done.
Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
Now back to all those Stormtroopers.
Look at that winning smile! He wants you to come for dinner....
Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
This was a quick speed paint, less than an hour. And I think the Night Spectre (Reaper Bones SKU 77099) turned out looking awesome for the amount of effort put in.
Some basic tabletop paint jobs on Goldar the Barbarian (Reaper Bones 77047) and Dub Bullock (Reaper Bones 77027). Their faces where pretty mangled, so I didnt want to spend a lot of time on them.
I had painted Goldar earlier, and on that one the face was fine. SO I think I was unlucky on the above Goldar:
Hello forum Family, Ciccio is back with more awful minis!
I'm trying to get the Blood Rage minis painted ATM, and well... no problem with big guys like the troll or the frost giant, but the smaller minis... O M G!
The worst sculpt I had to paint in my life... really CMON?
Anyway, is a game, I don't pretend the super quality, and do not need to paint every mini perfectly...
Let's get it started:
the whole party (sorry for the bad pic...):
The Soldier of Hel:
The Volur Witch:
The Dark Elf:
The Dwarf Chieftan:
As you can see nothing special, tabletop standard.
Not so "Speed painting" cause of the lack of detail/bad sculpt, anyway from 1 hour (fro the Witch) to 4 hours (the Valkyrie).
Hope you'll like them.
C&C welcome as always.
