    As long as you are using a synchronized shutter speed setting, no. It's the paper emulsion speed, flash intensity and flash-to-subject distance that counts.

    That's why I posted the chart...

    [Edit: Flashbulbs are a slightly different story. Due to their slow-burning nature, their effective GNs can vary by shutter speed.]

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    still-life is also possible:

    All taken with at most 400Ws heads. But if you want to take some high-key pictures, you'd better get a few 2000Ws ones...
    Nice work!
    Can something similar be achieved with speedlights or do they not have enough power for slow speed of paper?

    You'd have to keep very short distance between your flashes and subject (as Ken mentioned above). Or you may, for a static subject, open a shutter and fire the flash(es) several times (kinda light-painting with flash heads). Anyway, PE paper is cheap, if you have a suitable camera, you can just try.
