I needed a distraction to recharge my painting batteries. So I though I would start My Mad Grot Challenge early. Put simply “How quick can I paint 20 grotz and 2 Slavers?” that was the plan, but it did work that way. I intended to plan the whole project in a few days as Possible, but this didn’t happen. things got in the way and other stuff came up. I have recored the time spent on the complete project, but it has been a bit spread out.
I managed to get all 20 Grotz off the frame, trimmed, assembled and ready for Basing in 50 Mins, the Slavers done in another 10. I was pleased with the results of the first hour.
Day 2-Was a cheeky half hour before work to based them all up and got them undercoated, but didn’t bother photoing them.Running Total-1hr 30mins
Day 3-Again a cheeky 10 mins before work to get the skin base coated.
total time so far-1hr 40mins.
I broke the unit down to blocks of 5 and painted them to completion. each block took around 2 hours. so 8 more hours add to the total.
I have tried to keep the scheme simple and with limited colours. This has worked ok and while they look like they are part iof the army, they do look like the Poor relatives of the clan.
* on day Day 4 I got Distracted.
total time so far-9hr 40 mins.
For the Slavers, I went back to the style of the Orks in the army, but kept the use of red to a minimum. As always I did the skin all together and then focused on one at a time to complete the rest of the Model.
These are taking longer than expected, the first took 3 hours to get to this point and will take about 30mins more to finish.
Total time so far-12hr 40 mins.
Day 8-Da Last Mile.
I got 3 hours on the Last Slaver this evening and It’s done.
Thats it! 22 Models done. total time around 15 Hours 40 Mins, give or take an Ork Warbike. I am please with the overall result and I can now finally move on to something a bit bigger.
My next project will be the 4th Trukk. The Model was assembled awhile ago and is ready for some paint. After that, I am thinking of some more Imperial Gaurd. (and FW live is coming up!)
Till next time.
