Isolation Speed Painting

Recommended Posts

Updating this thread. 

 

This is from the Box of Goodwill I recently went through and then sent on its way. It's from Mice and Mystics. I've thought about buying the game because I do enjoy cute, but have held off since I have a bunch of other board games I've never gotten around to painting. I like this though, so I may end up getting that in the near future.

I posted these in Show Off already, but they were painted during isolation so they fit here as well.

I like them both but I think the troll is the real star of the show.

I've been playing around with drybrushing larger figures lately and I wanted to do that with some smaller figures. So I gave it shot on some older bones lizardmen. These guys suffer from a lot of the earlier bones issues like smushed faces, tons of flash, soft features, etc... Despite that they look good enough for tabletop play and I think I'm going to paint the remainder of my lizard guys (I've got 5 of them left) like these.

And finally here's a little bones 4 scenery.

It looks like it's going to rain all week so there's a good chance I'll get quite a few more done in the near future. And maybe, just maybe, I'll finally take the plunge and start getting paint on the Black Goat of the Woods mini that's been sitting around prepped and primed for about a month now.

More minis from the past week. 

 

First up is this bunny riding a snail from Skull n Crown. This is from their killer bunnies Kickstarter. I'm almost out of these. But luckily they're getting ready to launch another campaign based on animals found in medieval marginalia.

I posted these over in show off last week. These have been sitting unpainted in a cigar box for years. I can't remember where or when I got them. But I don't think they're sold in a single package, which is how I got them, any more.

Here's a happy heavily armored halfing with some rainbows.

This guy has used car dealer vibe. Almost certainly going to be a con man if he ever hits the table.

And I finally finished the last of these bones lizardmen. I ended up getting a bunch of these prior to bones 3. Then there were 16 of them in bones 3. And I ended up getting a bunch more from the $1 bones gumball machine at Origins over the years. At one point I probably had 30 of these. But no more! They're all of them completed.

I've also begun getting paint on Shub N. But I think I'm going to make a specific WiP thread for that thing.

Had a few too many Fourth of July drinks last night before retiring to my painting area for the evening. This rather sloppy speed paint is what happens when I do a little too much of the homebrewing hobby mixed with painting hobby. The goblin Smurf. I can just imagine how he sounds...

 

"I'm gonna smurf you in yer smurfing smurf, you smurfy smurfer."

Got a few more finished over the holiday weekend (which for me was 7 days long because I had some leave that needed using). 

 

First up is this beanbag cat from the Left at the Bottom of the Garden kickstarter. Somehow I managed to get actual cat hair stuck to it, which seems fitting. My wife has yet to see this one but I'm betting he'll disappear once she does.

I recently received a Secret Weapon "Bag of Crap" that is a gallon bag of reject bases. So I've been playing around with rebasing some minis I wasn't very excited about. I think the nice base on some of these really makes a difference in my desire to get color on them. This is one of the core set devils from the bones 4 kickstarter.

 

IMG_20200705_214539856.thumb.jpg.100ee91e56e4674682498e976a46c198.jpg

 

And this guy is from the bones 3 (I think?) kickstarter. Not only did I not care much for the original base, but since I speed paint I rarely take the time to do stuff like clean mold lines, and this guy just had so much of that that I never really wanted to paint him. But putting a new base on it kind of changed how I feel about him. Though still lots of little things I don't like about it, the new base makes it just likable enough for the tabletop.

 

IMG_20200708_222318944.thumb.jpg.19071f068bd9cfc1885bc73a21b3beb4.jpg

 

And here's an actual WiP I just started. This Xairbot from the last kickstarter had an extremely warped base and the left cannon was bent almost 90 degrees when I got it. Of course Reaper replaced it. But I threw it in the parts bin for later cannibalizing. Looking at this base I got the idea of having some robots that look like they've been through some alien battles and thought I'd start by further destroying this mini. Honestly, I'm liking it better so far than the replacement one Reaper sent me.

I for one am delighted that The Plague has allowed you to paint & post photos of your creations. I have really enjoyed everything you have done. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Those bases do enhance the look of the minis.

I'm in the "a mini looks better if based well" camp, good job!

I totally forgot about that KS. Hmmm, I may have some minis to paint next week!

Most of the painting I've been doing lately has been on a bigger figure, and I haven't been spending as much time painting overall compared to recently. But I did manage to finish off a few smaller figures. 

 

This is the Xairbot from above. Is it just heavily damaged? Or is that green goo full of malicious nano bots recoding and repurposing bits as it infiltrates its systems?

And here's a couple more from the Left at the Bottom of the Garden set.
