  1. With time travel, it's irrelevant.
  2. 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. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-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! 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
  3. PRELAUNCH

    I just hope this doesn't drop over labor day weekend. I'll be at con and wanna be here for the hype of going live
  4. If it serves a purpose to the game being played? I'm fine withit.
  5. PRELAUNCH

    I can already tell bones 4 is gonna hurt the wallet.
  6. And now, off to get more coffee.
  7. I finally got around to doing the thing! http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75639-july-and-august-rpchallenge/
  8. Whelp, I failed. Got caught up in pre-dragoncon drama which left me pretty drained...standby.
  9. [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 (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. 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 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/72633-january-and-february-rpchallenge/ March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73560-march-and-april-rpchallenge/ May/June: 9:http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/74744-may-ish-and-june-rpchallenge/ July/August: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75639-july-and-august-rpchallenge/ 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
  10. I would say warmachine is a somewhat blur between sci-fi and fantasy - I don't see it as steampunk per se. I would agree with aku that they're subsets that are exaggerated, but you could say the same about a lot of the ____punk followings.
  11. Glad you liked it. And apologies again for the lateness. Do either of the organizers know what happened to the person who was assigned myself?
  12. BIG STOMPY ROBOTS!
  13. I'll likely just try for the 5k challenge...since I work saturdays.
  14. Napalm I really only have shrubbery in my yard, so....hedge trimmer, I guess.
  15. This. Plus if it included "no coffee" there'd be a large pile of bodies in my wake.
  16. Nope...I don't really have a cubicle, I have an office.
  17. Live

    I got to play with the prototypes of these. I like 'em - they pair nicely with DF stuff.
  18. It's one of the few things that isn't.
  19. Nope. And thanks being there only half a year - and the vigorous safety inspection and work that was done, the weekend quest really doesn't have much to achieve for me
  20. Do I know how? Yes Am I too lazy to? Also yes.
  21. Last 5 days: They're illegal here (except sparklers and smokers) SOOOO I plead the Sith. Lifetime: See prior response Displays: Last 5 days: 2 Lifetime: dozens
  22. Can I have a lightwhip? It's the perfect combo of kinky and killy.
  23. Dragon head bust! yay!
  24. Many congratulations on your level up, O Great Space Pope!
  25. I was at a fireworks display for the 4th tonight actually.
