Hi,

I've been experimenting with speed painting in order to get a decent number of Beja onto the tabletop. Some years ago now i managed to get eleven (yes, you read that correctly; eleven!) to a finished stage by using my normal many layers method. This was simply not going to do the job. Certainly not if I was ever going to have the numbers on the tabletop that I desired!

I've bunged a few of pictures into this post, two are of my experimental speed painting technique and one of a kit bashed Beja which hopefully shows what is possible by simply doing a little planning and forethought.

all the information as regarding how I went about speed painting the Beja and went about the kit bashing is included in this blog post:

They look good. I'd even go as far to say I prefer the speed painted ones over the ones that took a long time…

Good stuff, far superior to mine in 10mm.

Excellent!

I've just speed painted about 80 of these and mine look like it! Very impressed if that's your end result for a quick paint job.

I still prefer the original layers versions but that might just be the time I invested into painting them doing the talking :>)

You will be abler to get more toys on the table though Jim. 10 mil games can look really spectacular if you get enough mini's on some good terrain mate. Hope all is well north of the border?

Excellent!

Thanks, appreciated. More to follow tomorrow though they might end up being on a separate thread as things seem top get a bit lost on TMP once the comments start to build up.
