1-week Malifaux painting challenge!

Postby mattbird » Fri May 13, 2011 3:49 pm

So, my problem is I have a whole box full of crews waiting to get painted, but almost have painting paralysis when it comes time to get to them. I want to do A+ jobs on a few crews; Collette, Kirai, and Chompy Bits, to the point where it's putting me off painting them for now. I just don't have the time.

In the meanwhile, playing my Pandora crew has been getting old. So when a friend of mine proposed a trade of his Guild crews for some Warhammer crap that's been sitting around, I took the offer. These aren't models I love as much as the others I mentioned above, but I like them well enough, and thought they'd be a good crew to paint up quick just to have something to get on the table.

and so, the ONE - WEEK PAINTING CHALLENGE. I will attempt to blow through these at a pace of 3 a night, which would have them done for this coming Thursday- club night! (I only get to paint on some few weeknights)

So, having mostly finished the first batch, apart from basing, I'd thought I'd share them, and show my progress through the week.

Nice simple interpretation of the factory scheme. Very clean too considering the speed.

I will try ang lock myself to my painting table this weekend and maybe get my Friekorps done for Thursday as well.
