  1. [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] As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge last year, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. 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 (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 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. 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 begins...now! 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: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78658-janfeb-rpchallenge/ March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79997-marchapril-rpchallenge/ 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.
  2. I'm still around y'all, just..not sure how to really express it. So if it seems a little disjointed - bear with me.
  3. I'm back to being late again! 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. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78657-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2018-chatterquestions/ 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: March 26th is National Purple Day (raising awareness for epilepsy) - so paint a figure in monochrome purple. (Yes I know a slime would be an easy candidate) Bonus Challenge the second: April Fools' Brigade - Paint a mini in a completely nonsensical paint scheme or other silliness. ex: CAV with a giant bullseye on it, Adventurer with a shield that says "I'm with tasty ->" or something similar. Bonus Challenge the Fiv Three, sir, three! Monty Python and the Holy Grail released 33 years ago in April - paint up a figure to resemble a character from the movie Good luck The game is made up and the points don't matter

    Yes. I used to not be able to, but there was some fallout between D&D group and (now not so F)LGS owner...
  6. Does that mean someone will get a rock?
  7. This is certainly exciting news. /goes to plan re-sorting of minis storage to accommodate more big stompy robots.

    Oh hey this thread is back from the dead. I've been working through programs on darebee.com again. The new program Carbon and Dust has a fun Firefly-esque feel to it. I do that in tandem with monthly challenge and daily dares, plus some walking or jogging.

    Yes, daily. I have a 2009 Tacoma which was a pain in the elf to find for a reasonable price and decent mileage. I started with temp license at 15.5 like a lot of people seemed to. Funny stories? I don't know if it's funny, but ever since I got a better job than at the warehouse, the daily vehicular assassination attempts seem to have stopped.

    Yes, early on in life too. Nothing really funny, though I do tend to go swimming with the mermaids at conventions.

    Not really as I refuse to give WizardWorld any of my money. I'll sometimes go to "Oddmall" or "Con on the cobb" but those are no regularity.
