Here they are.  I had a little extra time, so I was able to get the Bones version of Andre Durand done today, too.  Total: 14.

I've got to work on my photo booth before I get any beauty shots for Show Off.

Here are my results for the paint binge!

 

I needed a troll fighter so...

My friends helped me test a new game I created so I made a small gift....

I still had some smog rider figures from last year's Reapercon to paint:

and my favorite, the Genie, Djinn, or something like that:

This poor girl went through the ringer.

I went to spray it with dull coat and found out the hard way the spray PAINT and the spray LACQUER rattle cans look almost identical...

I only caught her with a glancing shot of spray paint but it still took several hours to repair.

I try to maintain the habit of always spraying the edge of the box lid or whatever I have miniatures laid out on first, to make sure I really am holding the can I think I am ...

      First painted this as a speed paint at Reapercon last year.  Not a prize winner, but not too bad for tabletop in under an hour. 
       

       
      And then there was the tip of his hat. 
       
      So I grabbed some paint an did a quick clean up/repaint to spiff him up a bit.

      It's definitely a worm, and it's definitely purple. Speed paint.

      Though I have no actual intention of playing until Quarantine 37 is released I went ahead and created a Stargrave crew. Initially this was only an excuse to start planning out the crew and maybe even finalizing a list/crew sheet. Once I had finished filling out the crew sheet however I couldn't help but notice that I probably had all the figures needed for this crew. A quick rifle through my backlog just confirmed my suspicion. Even more interesting though, at least for me, was the rediscovery that I don't own any unpainted Guardsmen with flamers. I had planned to paint one up specifically for this crew but it turns out I don't own any unpainted ones. So before the project even began I've already finished a miniature, talk about speed painting. 
       
      Armed with the remaining nine figures I decided this would be a nice palette cleansing project. Oh yes, I actually made that joke. It also occurred to me that this would be a great project to try my hand at speed painting too. After a few years of debatably tabletop quality paintjobs I'm eager to see the results I can achieve when I'm trying to paint quickly.  
       
      One quick note before jumping in, this single post condenses four nights of work all together. 

      Back row from left to right: My Captain, First Mate, Gunner, Burner, Sniper, Grenadier, Runner 1, and Runner 2
      Front row: Recruit 1, and Recruit 2 
       

      First up was my Captain who needed some conversion work. I'm not exactly worried about WYSIWYG for this particular batch but I figured my Captain deserved the extra "effort". That extra effort being laughable once you see it.  


      A quick snip of the hand, a pin, and some glue completed the conversion. I'm not exactly big into converting but this may just be the lowest effort conversion I've ever done. 
       

      Painting the Captain proved to be a little more involved but about half a session later I had a nearly finished miniature. The First Mate went even quicker as I chose to go with a limited color scheme.
       
       
      Next were my three remaining specialists. My Gunner like the Captain took about half of a painting session with the Sniper and Grenadier taking most of the remaining time. That bit of leftover time wasn't wasted though as Recruit 1 received most of its basecoat.
       

      My two recruits were finished pretty quickly during tonight's session. The Runners received most of their basecoat but I ended up running out of time tonight.

      This is my first "speed paint". I estimate around 2 hours per mini. The sculpts are hit or miss but I think they did a good job with the faces. I learned a bit about speed painting and what I could possibly get away with. I used Uniform Gray primer, a minimal pallet, Quickshade Strong Tone, and added a a bit to a few bases.
       
      The gray primer I left for anything that was steel and I like the end result. I am working in the Generals (bad guys) now. Most of their sculpts are not that good but the dragon looks pretty good. I will continue with the expansion sets after the base game is painted.


      Sorry for the double post.

      A thread dedicated to Work In Progress pix of those minis that have sacrificed their surface area to the never ending the quest to find ways of slapping paint on without it looking like absolute rubbish.
