This is probably my least favorite thing I've painted this year. Contrast/Speed paints aren't appropriate for every painting job. Quick, but awful.

You will love them if they roll high

That is a great looking unit – nobody does ragged rebs better than Stone Mountain

They look great! I don't know what Speed/Contrast paints are. Can someone enlighten me?

Army Painter makes "Speedpaints", and Citadel makes "Contrast Paints". Both are designed to provide shading, base, and highlights in ONE coat of paint. They are designed to go over a white or white/gray primer coat. They are excellent for cranking out lots of minis for the table very quickly. They are NOT designed to win painting contests. I would add to Flashman's observations about the results by saying that I find Contrast/SpeedPaints work better not only on more detailed sculpts but also on larger scale figures

Thank you Perris0707. I used to use a wash until I discovered Army Painter Quick Shade dips.

I think those troops look great. You really brought those figures to life.
