Pro Painted #2

I've been looking at eBay a lot lately. I would have thought my last Pro Painted post would have spelled the end of shitty models with the pro painted tag.

Sadly, this trope continues to this day. And so must my ridicule of these creations.

I will not let up until the task is done is time. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, I already been fooled (so I can't get fooled again.)

Just to reiterate my point with these posts. I am not making fun of poorly painted models (we all have to start somewhere). I am making fun of poorly painted models some boner has labeled as "pro painted" in a pathetic attempt to boost its value. (key difference)

Exactly what the fuck is this thing?

I think this one might be by the same guy. Always gotta work in the hot pink, man, it's my calling card!

Pros ain't got time to varnish!

Black's always tricky. This pro nailed it!


I don't know what this is, but I'm digging the black leather gimp suit. Couldn't be bothered to do any detail work but the creepy green lips?

If a basecoat and a wash is pro, then I must be the Aaron Rodgers of painting! (See what I did there?)

More genestealers, this time given an ass dip.

This one's not too bad, actually. Stayed in all the lines and added some pro depth to the hair via an expertly administered drybrush. Look at the base though. They clipped out the middle of the slotta tab but left it under each foot and glued the whole thing to a 40mm round?

Never know what kinda sweet stuff you'll find in a pro painted search! Vroom!

Kinda hard to tell what's goin on, maybe I'll get a better look in the rest 'o the pics.

Naw, I've only got the balls for one pic with the flash!

Imagine the details!


Massive base, though. I think I might I have found the K'daai destroyer for my upcoming Chaos Dwarf project!

Anyways, that's it for now. If you'd like to look for some gems yourself, just use the link below. You'll see the vast majority of pro painted models are fine, so we appreciate any help sifting through 'em!
