Last time, I showed how I speed painted the Gators for my Blindwater Congregation in our Journeyman League. This time, I’ll show how I did the rest of the army so you can bust out your force with a quickness. Continue Reading >
When our club was starting up a Journeyman league last year, I decided I wanted another army that was quick to paint that I could churn out easily.
I’d been painting my clean looking Retribution and I needed a change.
I settled on Blindwater Congregation. The gators are easy to paint and they don’t have many different models, so I could easily get most of the range done easily.
I switched to speed painting mode, which is a skill in it’s own right. Want to know how to quickly paint your gators? Look no further!
In our store’s Journeyman league, I’ve started the Blindwater Congregation army I had intended to start last journeyman league. I chose the gators because I thought that they would be easy to speed paint and thus win the hobby award for the league. Additionally, it’s nice to have a painted army.
I can paint well but all too often, it becomes too burdensome to paint an entire army to that standard. I have some side armies which I intend to take my tie with as I only want to paint a small, 25-35 point army of and probably not play very often. So sometimes, you just want to bang an army out to be able to play with it fully painted and not stress out. Enter the gators. The models are perfect to be speed painted with all their texture as opposed to flat armor plates. I’ll talk a little bit about my plan and show some pictures of the first batch.
Our Journeyman league went over Thanksgiving so we skipped a week. We were allowed to do painting in the extra week but I was out of town so I couldn’t take advantage of it. Last week it was time for week 2.
I actually got to play Hordes with my Gators this week. Not only that I got to play 3 games with them, it being Journeyman week 1 and all.
So our store starts a Journeyman league this week and I’ll finally be able to bust out my Gators. I started them last Journeyman but only got to play 1 week before real life intervened.
