Re: Speed painting challenge

Do you guys include basing in your time? Strictly speaking its not painting unless you're painting the base. I think I'm going to try but with maybe mostly a mono- base colour model for the body aka the Horrors earth golem or HQ skeleton but would that be cheating. I think even then I'll struggle! I guess washes can really sabotage your efforts given the drying time?

Re: Speed painting challenge

There are no strict rules but the first examples didn't include the base. Washes are fine as lo,g as you have a hairdryer at hand ;)

Or you wash within the hour and don't touch it again once the wash has dried...

My 1 hour challenge:

Took me about 50 mins in total before varnish, used the 3 stage method descibed in Foundry Paintbook I had, added a Quick Devlan Mud wash & then Varnished after it had dried, quite pleased with the result considering the time.

Re: Speed painting challenge

As previously posted elsewhere, here's my latest attempt at a one hour painted job - lot's of dry brushing with limited palate. All done well within the hour with just the base to do :D

Enjoy

Re: Speed painting challenge

Quite a classic miniature you picked here. And the paintjob is nicely different to those I have seen before.
I like it very much.

Re: Speed painting challenge

He looks great Paul ! I love that vibrant red and as Niibl, it's ot a scheme one would expect but it works wonders. How come you did not use the remaining time to base your model then by the way ? :D

Re: Speed painting challenge

Thanks for the comments guys, as for not completing the base - I originally used superglue to stick the model to the plastic base, so when I had completed the painting (two basic colours, applied with very little care or attention until it came to the tooth & claw) I had the model proud of the plastic base (ugly), if, I'd simply painted the base and dipped it in flock, there'd have been a ridge around the model - so I applied resin and had to wait for it to dry, hence no base decoration, sorry.

Also all my basing material is currently in the garage and I tend to do basing in batches to get a consistent look across a warband / army. :D

Re: Speed painting challenge

Excuses, ecuses, that will do for this once :D
As a true Taylorist, I can only agree with the batch basing. ;)
