Looking great Toog. I need to post more pics of my stuff. I did prime over 800 models last weekend though. Lots of painting ahead. Ive looked at the contrast paints but am not sold on them yet. Even though they look pretty cool.

Wow. After so much painting, have you gotten really fast and efficient at it? I like painting, but am quite a novice and it would take me years to paint so many. Impressive! And as always - great work!

The contrast paints are just basically inks/washes, but flow less. I like them so far, with my favorite being Snakebite Leather, which gives a very nice brown color over a white primer.

I do spend a lot of my free time on them, but I do think Iíve becomes faster with practice. Practice with layering and using speed painting techniques such as dry brushing and washes do help to make things faster. Thanks for the compliments!

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/25/2019)

So far I've been trying out the contrast paints some more, and have been testing out the blending and different colors. I also tried to sort of replicate the contrast paint with inks, matte medium, flow aid, and gloss medium/varnish, which ended up fairly successful (the main example is the mage knight black dragon I painted up). I got the idea from Goobertown Hobbies from YouTube, and I'm probably going to start investing in more inks than the contrast paints now.

Spoiler Alert!

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/25/2019)

As always they look great. Ive seen that vid that goobertown hobbies put on. Its impressive. I get pretty great results with my current speed painting techniques that I use with pretty inexpensive materials so I havent delved into the contrast paints yet. Ive thought about making my own as well. I do like the idea of multiple color washes with better pigments than I currently have. Though I primarily wash with black and brown so its not a terribly big deal. Keep up the good work. Im currently working at getting 1 unit of figures done a night before bed each day. That could be a squad of star wars legion, or a small expansion of monsters for a game, or a small box set. Ive painted another 50 models in the last week. At this rate I may paint all my minis before I die.

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/25/2019)

Yeah that Goobertown video was pretty cool and has allowed me to start experimenting with the different brown and black ink I have (giving me a good amount of colors). The contrast paints are definitely expensive for what they are. I also recently have been trying to work on at least one figure a day, which has been lowering my unpainted pile, but buying new stuff makes it a somewhat consistent size.
