Re: Speed painting challenge

I thought I'd give this a go this afternoon. I had to cheat a little and break it into two sessions to let a wash dry, so I paused the timer at that point, had dinner, and then came right back to it. I also made a point of doing a dwarf as my basing scheme for them is just a glue and dip with no painting needed. Total time 38 minutes and 48 seconds.
Here's the stop for the wash at 21 minutes 40 seconds

And here he is finished. Highlights added, and I wasn't happy with the beard, so that got reworked.

The light for these photos wasn't quite as good, so the lamps make it read a bit warmer than the daylight on the first pair.

Re: Speed painting challenge

Here's my attempt, I didn't think I had a chance but I actually completed it in 50 minutes and 58 seconds! (Still needs the basing doing though):

A timed breakdown in a bit more detail with what I did can be seen here:

I think I can now get through my leadpile in double quick time now..?! Having a stop watch going really focused me and stopped me from getting distracted/fannying around with paint queues, bitz box rummages and the general procrastination that accompanies my hobby time.

Re: Speed painting challenge

Bane's watch ... :D reminded me I have timed myself against the clock once.
These were done a few years ago and not for this thread so not looking to compete ... but just thought you might find this amusing:

Here are 10 night goblins. Black undercoat to finished. Photo taken at every stage.
(stopping to take the photos, in itself, added several minutes to the process!)

Image

Dry Brush Codex Grey. (3 Mins)

Image

Dry Brush Bestial Brown (3 mins)

Image

Paint shoes bestial brown (3 mins)

Image

Face and arms Dark Angels Green (5 mins)

Image

Face and arms Snot Green (8 mins)

Image

Face and arms Goblin Green (7 mins)

Image

Half an hour gone!

Image

Face and arms goblin green and scorpion Green mix (6 mins)

Image

Spear and shield dry brush with Tin Bitz. (8 mins)

Image

Spear and shield dry brush with Chainmail (6 min)

Image

Spear and shield dry brush highlight with Mithril Silver. (6 mins)
This is 1 hour Gone! (I won't bother showing the clock again!)

Image

Touched up the dry brushing with black especially on the shield, the mouth and a black dot for eyes
Although I missed doing the eyes on this model. Doa! (9 mins)

Image

Eyes and teeth. (5 mins)

Image

Spear and Belt Scorched Brown (5 mins)

Image

Belt and string at top of spear Bleached Bone (12 Mins)
I tried dry brushing the rope belt but was not satisfied so painted over them and re-did them painting in each twist.

Image

final was of brown ink over the string at the top of the pole (it was too bright) and the shoes (to give them a leathery look and some tone)

And here he is finished.

Just over an hour and a half for ten men. So 10 mins a man. Batch painting for the win. :D
