After 2 hours and 59 minutes of frantic painting, here's the result of the speedpainting experiment.
I set the phone alarm to go off every hour so I could stretch my legs and take snapshots of the progress.
Undercoat with black, brown and bone.
Foundation and shading
Drybrushing, washes. Basecoating details
Details and general fiddling about
Now it's only the base left - the mini stays as it is. I'll take some proper pics once that's done.
All in all pretty happy how it panned out - it was fun as an excersise, but somewhat frustrating. The stress of having a racing timer nearby made detail work like thin highlights very difficult to pull off for some reason.
And I can't get rid of the feeling that he actually looked best at the one hour mark...
