Nagash - A speed-paint adventure!

Sometimes it can be really hard to find the time for miniature painting. Even more so now since I’m expecting a baby at literally any moment (we passed the due-date like a week ago…) but Nagash was just too awesome not to slap some paint on!
The fact that I might have to drop everything and rush to the hospital at any moment made me realize that I either had to act fast and finish it off asap or wait until after the baby was born and start the project when I’d have a little more time on my hands. That might have been the sensible thing to do, but I decided that I’d try to paint him as fast as I could to an acceptable table-top standard, and if I was lucky I’d have it finished before the baby was born.
This way I got to both build and paint this new amazing model, but also challenge my speed-painting skills and see how far(fast) I could push myself!

I wanted to try and paint him in a monochrome scale of bluish greens as if his cloak, armor and hat were all made of the same spectral material… With the bone and red as contrast colours I had my colour scheme, and immediately set to work!

All in all I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, considering how big and detailed this kit is and how fast it went.
I picked it up 3 days ago and only spent a couple hours every night painting this bad boy!

Still no baby (at time of writing…) but at least that meant I managed to finish my speed-painted Nagash!
It’s currently on display at Games Workshop Stockholm so make sure you swing by if you’re in the neighbourhood and check it out!



I had the pleasure of running a two day painting masterclass in Edinburgh this weekend. I had a blast and hope that everyone who attended had as much fun as I did and hopefully got something out of it too! Big shout out to the GW Edinburgh guys for being awesome and setting this up!

Here are just a couple quick iPhone pics from the Saturday where we covered some basic color theory, worked with glazes to build up subtle color variations in skin-tones and armor (and ended with an epic night at Wings) as well as the Sunday where we focused on some tips and tricks regarding true metallic metals and ended up with a (more or less) finished Chaos Nurgle Lord!

We’re already looking at doing more classes here in Stockholm (and pretty much anywhere else we can make it work) so if you’re a group of people interested in setting something up or you have any questions drop us a PM over on our facebook page!

If you attended the class in Edinburgh I’d love to get some feedback and hear what you thought, just drop a comment here or on facebook!
