I discovered this really cool thing some miniature painter friends are doing called the #speedpaintchallege on twitter. The idea is that you get seven colors plus black and white to paint a miniature in 4 hours or less. Sounds easy right? turns out that it is more difficult than it appears.
Here are the results of my first one but I have to admit that I failed the challenge. These images were taken at the 4 hour mark but I was not finished. :( I wanted to get pictures of it our now as a record of how far I got. I am going to finish it up -- really just a little cleaning but I am going to hold myself to the colors and just clean up the parts that bother me. Yes I will post picture when I do that so you can see the completed version.
And here is the works in progress with time markers so you can see how my work is developing. I think that I will try to take more pictures next time.
