As the title says, here's a thread to post your feats of glory !

Anyone can add his own creaton here as long as it was intended as a speed painting one session attempt (meaning you can post even if you exceeded and failed in the attempt ;) )

Please state at least the time it took you and any further information you see relevant (by linking to your blog or explaining to us here)

A extension of this could be to elect the best Speedpaint of the week or something that will depend on the number of entries).

I decided to do another Scavvy for my painting challenge

He actually only took me 45 mins so I may be raising the stakes a bit!

I wasn't too sure about the one hour limit as I use enamel paint, which takes quite a while to dry. However, I thought I'd give it a go. Here's a Crusader Miniatures Viking hirdman who'll be going into my Norse army eventually. I started with the figure primed, and managed to finish it in about 58 minutes.

I thought I'd give this a go but you guys are setting the bar far too high, I'll have to prepare things methodically if I am to dive in. Superb jobs anyway and I see some corners can be cut without the quality being reduced which I think might help for more regular painting.

@ Jon, We do indeed ! I'm super bad at designing things but I'll see if something can be done.

Could people just mention their timing to see who scored under 1 hour in the event of a (friendly) competition ? ;)

My try, run out of time doing the snow on the base, needs a good two or three coats to get it nice.

Dude, that's as fast as I can go. I had an undead project midway through 5th Edition and still hadn't got to 1750pts before the 8th book came out.


I cheated on this marine and airbrushed the reds.
