I’ve been screwing around with grisaille (the kids might call it “slapchop” but I call it “you have no excuse to not paint your Infinity models”) over the past week or two in prep for tackling my Epic Battles: Pike & Shotte box.

That spiraled into trying it out on a dozen printed Mirkwood Rangers for MESBG. I wasn’t thrilled by but was satisfied enough with my first batch, painted the normal way. Same is true of the slap chopped versions.

Can you tell which is which?

So far, everyone’s answer has been “the one on the right” and that’s either a testament to the effectiveness of the slapchop or a dis of my normal technique, because it’s the one on the left.

I think the breakthrough for me was recognizing I don’t need to do EVERYTHING with it… just cover enough ground with it to quickly do the parts it’s good for and then pivot to other techniques.

As my last post indicated, I’m about to tuck into a ton of Warmaster stuff with the technique to see how far I get and how fast.
