  1. Just back from turkey dinner, painting will begin soon.
  2. I haven't done a holiday weekend challenge in a long time, so I think it is time to dust off the cobwebs and announce the Annual Thanksgiving weekend paint binge! Link to the 2016 Challenge. The object is to finish as many figures as possible. Quantity counts over quality. All manufacturers are fair game, posting of WIPs and finished pieces is strongly encouraged. You may prep and prime figures before hand, in fact I recommend it. Get out all those primed and half painted figures and get ready to finish them! Then join us on Hangouts. Finish your Rainbow Dragon. Get caught up on your RPChallenge. Catch up on your Minivember totals. Work on your Secret Sophie. Finish your Large Figure entry. When you complete a mini post a photo here, or make a link to Show Off. It doesn't matter if you aren't in the US, come paint with us anyway. Have to work? Travel? Have to cook a big family meal? That is part of the challenge. Painting begins at 00:01 am Nov 23 and ends 23:59 pm Nov 27. This gives you a chance to finish up Monday night and post pics. Who's in with me? Can we break last years total? BONUS CHALLENGE: Use at least 3 paints from Reapercon 2017, or the Halloween promotion: -- Retro Slate -- Retro Elderberry -- Retro Emerald -- Retro Red Steel -- Retro Frost Satin -- Retro Gold Silk -- Breast Cancer Pink -- Gory Red -- Maggot White
  3. December specials?

    I saw those at Reapercon. Guy sharing a table with us bought one. Nothing wrong with it that we could see, but the pieces were two different colors of plastic.
  4. I do. Fascinating concept. Had no idea it had it's own day.
  5. Painting begins at 00:01 am Nov 23 and ends 23:59 pm Nov 27. If it is midnight where you are, you may begin! Remember to post pics or links!
  6. Inarah's Minivember

    # 17 & 18 Shadow's cloak is actually dark purple, doesn't show in the bad lighting. I did NOT just paint it black and call it done. :)
  7. Inarah's Minivember

    First two: On deck: In the bullpen:

    I like how he adds snow to that. As for making it less modern for Frostgrave, cut off the pack and add a cloak? Add some pouches and things hanging from his belt. Maybe a dagger.
  9. Inarah's Minivember

    #16. This one has given me fits for days. Love the sculpt but the casting is crap.
  10. Yes, priming and/or washing with liner count as prep. So does assembly and greenstuff. Anything that needs to be dry before you add paint. [looks at available figures on the desk] I'm thinking I may need to break open a few blisters this evening in order to have enough to last the weekend.
  11. Looking good so far. My husband uses that figure for one of his current characters.

    Tryptophan is present in all proteins, including fish, eggs, nuts and cheese and some plant foods like spinach and bananas. There is more tryptophan in a serving of crab than there is in turkey. For that matter, there is more in spinach than in turkey. While you think it is the turkey making you sleepy, it has no more effect than any other protein you've eaten. That nap is most likely a result of the carb crash as the sugars from bread, potatoes and sweet potato casserole become exhausted, making you feel tired and unfocused.
  14. Aeon Trespass: Nymphs

    Nice concept. I like the artwork. It just bugs me that the surfaces have no texture. Smooth skin, smooth hair, smooth metal, smooth cloth, smooth stone, etc.
  15. Start to finish, I used to be able to get 3-4 to a good tabletop standard, with shade and highlights, eyes, and minimal basing. These days, 2-3 with no basing. I've never had a need for anything like 32 skeletons in 2 days so never done anything like that.
  16. Ditto. My experience with trash pandas tells me they are flea carrying, roof damaging, wire chewing vicious little &^%$, who spread trash, and poop everywhere. We had a pair in our attic for a few months and it cost thousands in trapping and roof repair. Animal control here does not collect wildlife. We had to pay someone. We've had another one coming around for a while, knocking pots over, digging up plants in larger pots, digging around in my wood pile near the smoker, pooping on the deck, generally being a nuisance. Wish it would just stay in the woods.
  17. Link to original challenge: I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379 So I'm painting that. Die roll, 13, 18, 2. Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red. Good colors. I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. Baby needs a bath first.
  18. You know what would be cool? I do...

    That assumes the formulas are repeatable. I think some of them weren't written down at the time.

    Thanksgiving Paint Binge begins in ~54 hours. First turkey, then pie, then paint.
  20. Welcome to the hobby! They look pretty good. You got everything "within the lines" so to speak and your color choices help contrast the different parts of the figure. I think the face is supposed to be a skull. You could go over it with some brown ink, which will settle in the grooves and bring out the face details. You could actually brush ink over the entire figure to bring out the detail in the wrappings and other areas, too. Keep practicing. The more you paint the better you get.

    A little digging... it was originally a Pro Paint color. Became a 2011 Reapercon paint, and was revived in 2014 along with colors from 2012 and 2013 (like Carnival Purple.) That was a good year to be at the con, 12 bottles of paint between the swag bag and banquets.
  22. Atypical Hobby Behavior

    Ah yes, and then racing home after school to claim time on it before my brother. They only cost $100-200 at the time. I remember my parents going out in the middle of the night to get one at some crazy midnight sale.
  23. Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    As of this week: Barbaric Splendor -- due Sept 2016, sculpting still not finished Eclipse Sisterhood: Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures -- est Nov 2017, "in production" Bones 4 -- est Feb 2019, funded I have not seen anything new or original that I wanted to put money into for a long time.
  24. Kev!'s Bones 3 Buzzy (InMiPaMo day 19)

    Nicely done.

    #9653. It was a Reapercon paint from 6-7 years ago. 2012, I believe. Same year we got Sophie Silver.
