Killzone Painting Blitz

I'm racing to finish in time a new Special Ops team for Big Jim's upcoming Killzone Blitz. I only began work on it yesterday afternoon so I really don't know if I'm going to be able to get everything complete, but it's well worth the attempt. I rarely paint under any sort of deadline which makes this an interesting challenge for me. I've got ten miniatures to paint and at this point I'm probably less than a fifth of the way done. I usually consider myself a slow painter but I am eager to push myself over the next couple of days to see if I can come in under the wire. No matter what, it's going to be fun.

I'm excited to see what everyone has been working on and I'm psyched to have a shot at contributing something of my own. I will be traveling with my family on Saturday to Charlotte for my grandmother's 92nd birthday but otherwise I should be able to get in a fair amount of painting time. Who knows, I might even be able to pull this off. We shall see.

Okay, that's it for now. Happy painting and gaming everyone!


  1. Good luck- I'm a FAST, FAST painter so 10 figs is a couple hours unless I want them to look showroom ready. However I know that not everyone is so lucky.

  2. Thank you, Loquacious! No doubt that I am envious of your ability to get miniatures painted, your current Space Marine project really is an impressive undertaking that intimidates me just thinking about it. I'll be thrilled if I can get through these 10 guys in the next couple of days, I appreciate the support. Thanks!

  3. Good luck with it. If all else fails you can post a WIP blog!

  4. Haha, great point. I think that will be a good backup plan for me to keep in mind in case I don't get everything painted. Thanks!

  5. The blitz is all about sharing what you have been doing with Killzone. So a WIP or modeling post fits the bill, just as much as a review of the rules would.

    I look forward to seeing what you get done!
