Sassanid Empire speed paint
3 mounths into it now these are the figures from the 3-4 box, 4th box only half full, did’nt have the time to take photos of the elephants and more of the empire, but its growing fast, also been painting the Romans to counter them on the tabletop but again no time to photo them, been so busy – anyway more photos on the web site in the workbench tab.
Again speed painting, and i broke my all time record i painted up the cataphracts in under 4 hours flat, was pretty pleased with that as i had to wash the pots before the wife got home
More photos in the gallery at the website.
The Victorian Outpost is a new building created at the beginning of 2016, we can cater for almost any period and we now have the support of “Adrians Walls” and “Hovels Buildings” who have come on board.
Victorian Outpost has quickly become the number one wargaming place in Grimsby with its friendly welcome and fun place to visit, please pm myself to arrange a set time and date.

I wish my “speed” painting were both as speedy and good.19/08/2016 at 03:37 #46872McKinstryParticipant
I’m getting ready to start on a 6mm Sassanid Army for Hail Caesar. Is it correct to paint them as units (ie: uniform) or should I (shudder with Gallic nightmares) be painting each figure as an individual?
Never wrestle with a pig. You both get muddy and the pig just likes it.19/08/2016 at 06:41 #46877Piyan GlupakParticipant
With 6mm, I paint as units, unless I have something like Gauls that have to have a non-uniform appearance. Even when you want different coloured clothes, paint them as units but when it comes to doing what you want to be in various colours, paint a few at random in one colour, a few more with another, and so on.19/08/2016 at 06:51 #46878Norm SParticipant
Malc, very nice, I am about to do 1066 Normans and would be interested in your speed painting technique. I am guessing, black prime, block paint, soft ink wash and then put the highlights back is …. Is that right?22/08/2016 at 11:43 #47190malc johnstonParticipant
Sorry for late reply, speed paint, yea black, highlight with grey so you can see all the detail, block paint, no wash, just highlight then a dry brush, for faces i use a sewing needle, put a dab on a plate and dip the needle touch forhead nose, cheeks chin, i use a bigger sewing needle for straps shield pattern designs, alot quicker than a brush a no loose hair on a needle.
Needles are really good for buttons cuffs collars, i always use cavalry brown mix with pale flesh then hightlight with pale flesh, all the lines you see and patterns are done with a needle, believe me it fast once you figure it out , make sure you don’t have a blob on the end of the needle
