REAPER BONES TWO MONTH CHALLENGE STARTED TODAY!
240 minis in 8 weeks.
Like many people, I have a Reaper Bones Vampire set, and much like many (or even most) of those people, my vampire set is unpainted! Bones 2 is coming out soon, and I want to get these painted first.
So I will!
Starting Today, Monday, July 21st, I will paint the entire vampire set in two months (or less)! I have decided to do progress reports and photos, and explain my methods for painting quickly. I will be spending twenty hours a week on the vampire set, so I will have time to run my business as well.
These will be tabletop to high tabletop quality, and when they are complete, the entire painted set will be put on ebay as an auction.
I hope some of you will follow along or at least check in from time to time to see the progress. I will be creating a page specifically for this project once I have a dozen or so pieces complete.
Today was the setup day for the project. This meant unbagging the rest of the bones and sorting them.
The bones are sorted by size, type, and complexity to give an arrangement like this:
After organizing everything, I have about 2 1/2 hours to paint, so I decide to start with all of the small items. It is a large batch, but all of the pieces are fairly simple. Today, I have Goblins, Familiars, Vermin, Kobolds and I threw in the Dungeon Decor pieces for the sake of my sanity.
I give myself an extra half hour to paint, and with three hours of painting, I have a good basecoat on most of the pieces.
Tomorrow, I will finish all of the pieces above and start on the giants and monsters!
As soon as these are finished, I will create a gallery page for the photos of the completed models.
Thanks for reading!
