I think it is worth to put it in it's own thread.

Take all minions which should get different colors together. Chose 6-10 paints for the clothes.

Take 2x4 different minions sculpts. Paint the first 4 different sculpts with blue upper body and the 4 others with blue lower body.

Switch paint to brown and the first 4 get lower body in brown and the last 4 upper body in blue.

Do the same with highlights.

8-10 minis is a good number for speed painting. Don't do more.

But if you have fresh blue or brown, you can use it for another set of 2x4 minis to just paint their shoes and put them away again to paint the rest of them later.


For police men it will be even easier, you will paint all in the same colors, maybe different skins, only. So take 8 police men and paint them all blue. Paint all weapons black and later in metal. Same shoes, same accessories. Ok, maybe different shoes. :-)

Same as the police, for the guards, plants, hazmat thugs, maybe riddler gang and owls (in may opinion they will look better if they have the same colors mostly)

The Harley Thugs I would personally do in pairs, so they would fit also for Two-Face. Two-Face likes it if 2 minions fit together. :-)


You can see a good example how it would look like >>>here<<<

Police uniforms are UNIFORM, so they would all have the same shoes.

Woot, thanks!

It NEVER would have occurred to me to take two different kinds of minions and reverse the colour schemes to speed things up! Left to my own devices I probably would have done them all with the same colour tops and bottoms if I was trying to be fast.

You can also make 2 sets, but in the sets are 4 different minions.

Choose the 1st set out of 4 different minis, for example:
Brutes, Chain
Thugs, Crowbar
Thugs, Firearm
Joker's Gang, Hammer

The 2nd set could be:
Brutes, Fire Arm
Harley Quinn's Gang
Male Bystander
Female Bystander

And do this for times till all 8 minions groups are completed.

Some minion groups maybe better if all 4 are in same colors.

But it would work for SWAT and GCPD to paint them slighly different.

GCPD: blue jacket, black pants, blue shoes
SWAT: black jacket, blue pants, black shoes

or something like that.
