This week was crap on painting

Here is hoping this next week is better. I plan on finishing up some horrors and Grinders for Jay plus getting more of my yellow marine army done up. In fact, all I did was paint up some Termies. I found a way to do it that I like and will allow me to create a nice effect, quickly and effectively. So will see if the army gets put together. I just got all the pieces for it, so all is good in the plastic department.

Here is my first bit the termies. Totaly time - 2 hrs, figuring out the way to get it to look right. Hopefully an hour and a half per squad on the next ones. Heh.

Hmm, now that I see your Terminators I understand why you're such a fast painter and me so slow. =) I'd paint a lot more details on these Terminators, so that's why it would take me approximately three weeks (with breaks).

No offense to painting like that, I just find it a bit of a waste if I want to get a nice looking army on the table and ready to play. I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy painting :). But show me some of your termies.

How do you do yellow that looks that good in less than 2 hours?

I cheat with a yellow spray paint, that goes on very strong and has a nice overall, bright yellow look. Once there, just a wash and it is basically done.

They look great as a squad. I am looking forward to seeing how the entire army painted this way will look.

I am curious though, what brand of yellow spray paint do you use exactly?

Pretty decent overall, but I must say that I wouldn't go for it myself
No wonder you're hailed as a painting genius X)

Best option for those hard to paint colors.
