  1. Anotherday or two, just got back from a business trip and wiped yeah. Travel doesn't mix well with challenge posts.
  2. [MOD]Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites. We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.[/MOD] Important Change! As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges. FAQ Reaper only? - No. If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes. Are speed paints acceptable - Yes. Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes. Based or unbased? - Yes. Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes. NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases) Medium and smaller = 1 ea Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea Complex Terrain ( or such) = 2 ea Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota – rounded up Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures. If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. Thunderbird Emperor Ronin Simba Tiamat Katana Tyrant Starhawk Regent Cataphract Silverback Kraken If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually. Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little, to start painting more. You challenge! And Our Mantra: Participants: If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, you must post in the bi-monthly thread. The objective: To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list) What qualifies: Darn near anything! Reaper/non-reaper! Any material! Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten! Exchange minis! Speed paints! Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well) Any Size! Based/unbased! Etc! (I think that covers everything) Jan/Feb: 8: March/April: 9: May/June: 9: July/August: 9: Sept/Oct: 8: Nov/Dec: 9: Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this. Initial post from mobile hoping it won't train wreck
  3. Oh. Right. Box did get sent out earlier this week.
  4. Blah, can't win lately. Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. All the information you need should be here. Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it. Your challenge is: 9! Bonus Challenge: The First! Oh Rats - July 22nd Is attributed as Ratcatcher's Day due to the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. There's too much folklore to get into here - so let's see a ROUS or two! Bonus Challenge: The Second! Richard Nixon made proclamation 4071 as National Clown week. The challenge is to make a character that's not sculpted as a clown, to have the garish appearance of one. (I would say the style of Killer Klowns from outer space works here too) Hard Mode Challenge! Let's combine two of our favorite things, difficult colors and transparent cloth! Paint a mini of your choice using either Red or Yellow transparent cloth. (or is the term Translucent? I don't remember, I'm not done with my first pot of coffee yet.) Good luck
  5. Congrats on your level up!
  6. I sorted through my Massive Darkness pledge...does that count?
  7. Bones is great for cheap/mass/experimental painting. I don't sink a whole lot into it. Metal is good for tabletop (satisfying 'thud') and display pieces. I wouldn't use resin for anything but display due to fragility.
  8. Merry Level up day!
  9. May also be inbox full? or Maybe i'm just the lucky smurf getting an obscure, non-repeatable error
  10. I tried to get the address for @Evilhalfling and got a "cannot receive messages" error...
  11. Maybe a few odds and ends from Chronoscope. The aliens aren't very useful to me, but the 'futuristic traffic cones' have use in shadowrun and such.
  12. Sept/Oct is postponed a few days while brain from dragoncon recovers. Goodnight. /thud
  13. About a month away now - who all is going to dragoncon this year? I met a few of yall last year, and that was great.
  14. Across two months to get the promo figures.
  15. If you wanna try to meet up for some food just text me, I think you got my number still from last dragon. If not hit me up on facebook? Is MrMelons going to be there too?
  16. Functionally immortal until I finish my last unpainted mini
  17. Because I horribly failed to send the box, I'll be trying to cram a few extra goodies in there, maybe a couple from con
  18. I enjoy clubbing my friends. Literally
  19. With enough Thyme that The Doctor shows up to fix the paradoxes I created
  20. Hey @Dilvish the Deliverer I sent ya a message on bookface about a prop maker you used to talk about in your dragoncon days (at least I think it is) thought it'd be of interest, but can't really post here cause of commerce site, might wanna check it out
  21. Basically what we did here, except 80%
  22. What furball said.
  23. BTW we have hit the mystical 1000 with this topic. The winner is Talae. Does this deserve a huzzah from the appropriate purple cat?
  24. Do acquisitions from the BoGw count? If so I should take a picture...
