  • Speed Painting chat thread

    So you brave boys and girls have stepped into my arena, speed is my thing:ass:. To give you slackers a chance I plan to paint 3 of my FIW figures.
    Hopefully you will be able to get passed blending the flesh in the 4 hours.

    Good job the figure is already prepped cus some of you would not even do that in 4 hours.














    So is that enough trash talk, good luck to all of you taking part.
    Peace James

    I just learned to finish a wet-blended bald head in ten minutes on my last model. What else you got?

      I don't even know what FIW is. I don't think I'm going to be very good at this rubbish talk (I refuse to use the American idiom).

          FIW = French Indian War, were we taught the colonials how to fight. Which all went wrong a few years later when they used those skills to kick us out .

            With a long history of starting competition models at the last minute I'm eminently qualified to get a mini done and dusted in four hours. Most of my stuff was done in less so there!

                  A bit disappointed Shane, won't you join the list ? I thought at first we would do this altogether ...
                  Otherwise, May the 13th is good for me :)

                    I may do. I already have a mini planned, Reaper Bones Dwarf, if time allows me to join in but after this weekend break of building a bookcases I have to crack on with Portal.

                    This means I'll be in front of the pc all day everyday so I can give... moral support

                        just to freak you all out here are the THREE figure I will paint, Foundry Miniatures French SYW Musketeers, for those how want to know the SYW (seven years war) was really the first real world wide war fought in Europe, Indian and the colonies, the British help with funding the Prussians in Europe but fought in Canada mostly.

                          I can speed paint tabletop quality, but anything beyond is probably pushing it for me. It also depends on the miniatures. Those FIW minis would be doable, but they'd look like hell most likely (yes, I opened the door, someone go ahead and say it). I'm going to be pushing myself with the one mini in four hours, but I've chosen one that's mostly skin with little in the way of details (Reaper Ghoul Lord(?) IIRC).

                            Neat !
                            My only certainty is that I'll probably chose a Rackham model ... maybe one of these Tir-Na-Bor Dwarves, or Sylarenn, Cadwallon's ladybird ...

                              I'm gonna paint up a lead adventure post apoc dude. May 13th is mothers day round here so I have to spend it with the wife and kids. Which is retarded. Fathers day is when I get the hell OUTTA this place. So I am gonna see about doin' it all on Saturday in a 4 hour block. I'll take WIP pic's but I won't post anything till after. I am even going to PLAN the model out ahead of time! Wowza. Oh yeah... trash talk... meh. I'm tired now. Later.
