OK! Just made it under the wire finishing these GZG Mercs last night.
As mentioned last post, krimso and I are challenging ourselves to finish something every two weeks. I know for some of you this is no big deal. A friend of mine is able to paint at work (don't ask) and is able to complete 300 or more figures a year. My envy knows no bounds!
I am a slow painter. Couple that with a focus on projects results in my painting being a small output of only project based (Convention game) painting. Burn out.
So for my first "sprint" (hijacking a project management term) I chose some GZG 15mm Mercenaries. I got three as door prizes at the GZG-ECC this year and I found a few others (probably another door prize from a previous year - you do know that EVERYONE gets some door prize figures as well as figures in every game you play, right?).
Let me say that I really enjoyed this "fast" approach. It must be akin to the rush folks in ironman painting contests get. Not much time to dwell on color scheme, can't fret about perfection; just paint and get them done. Kind of a rush!
This was also my first chance to play with the small photo-tent I bought on ebay...last summer. It's about 1 foot cubed and came with four colored backgrounds (white, red, blue, and black) and I think I paid around $14. It's going to take some fiddling to get it right, but overall I am satisfied with how the figures came out considering they are 15mm figures and I am using a compact digital camera.
Now that I look at the pics, I may have to go back and trim the grass a bit, it does overflow in places.
