Color My Mini!

58 posts in this topic

I'm setting this up now so it can run while I'm doing my other WIP, and then I can do this up. I have selected a miniature, but I need you to select the colors.

 

Here's how it works. If you follow this link, you can vote on colors:

 

POLL IS NOW CLOSED

 

*****************************

RESULTS:

Hair: Red

Skin: Tie (color roulette)

Boots: Chestnut Brown

Gloves: Chestnut Brown

Sword Blade: Color roulette

Sword hilt/guard: Color roulette

Armor Main: Tie (color roulette)

Cloth: Turqoise

Helmet Trim: Color roulette

Armor Frill: Color roulette

Shield: Yellow

Shield Design (Heart): Black

Lips: Black

Tile Stone 1: Granite

Tile Stone 2: Stone Grey

Tile Stone 3: Dove Grey

**************************************

 

Color roulette means that I will blindly pick a random color from my stash, which could be anything.

 

In the event of a tie in any category, it will default to color roulette.

 

Whatever colors are chosen will form the midtone, and I'll paint the miniature with the requisite techniques I usually use - even if it means purple hair and turqoise skin.

 

For an extra layer of fun and amusement, when it's finished I'll put it up on CMON for votes and see what results we get.

 

Ready? Here she is:

Hmm. This is a lot of thinking. Or I could hit "roulette" for everything...

At least I know it works!

 

And it is a lot of choices, but I didn't see any other way to make it work.

I like all the choices, it'll be cool to see how it comes out.

Is registration on that site required to vote in the poll?

 

It shouldn't. I set it up for free open access.

I can't get to the poll no matter what I click, so I'll just spout some random colors and hope you add them to the poll results.

 

yellow, gray, green

It should ask you to choose to not use safe mode, then click "save", and then the poll should appear.

 

In future, now I know to submit it to a category a few days in advance so the "safe mode" page won't come up.

 

It's a learning experience for me.

 

 

ETA: The poll runs until Saturday, so if you can't get in currently (might be the case since I submitted it for a category to try and get rid of the safe mode page) then try again in a day or two.

 

Anybody runs into problems, just let me know. Never done this before and we'll work the kinks out.

Yeah, no registration, just choose 'not-safe-mode' and you can choose annonymously

If anybody was waiting to vote because of the "safe mode" thing, that's taken care of now. The link takes you straight to the poll.

It's one of the sillier RAFM Women of the Ninth Meridian minis. 3698. It's NIC now but I wrote them with the order numbers and got some made up.

 

There's a handy list of catalogs here: http://dndlead.com/Catalogs.htm and you can find most of the RAFM I've got in the 1994 catalog.

 

Wot9M are on page 17.

I really love some of the older stuff, especially the Ral Partha and the old Julie Guthrie Grenadier sculpts. I wish that Ironwind Metals website was better.

I'm going to be away from the computer most of the weekend, but I'm hoping to see some paint when I check in.

 

I'm in the process of setting up my paint table again but until then I'm still painting vicariously thru you.

      Here is a group of speed painted bones skeletons I painted back in February.  I spent maybe 4 hours total on all of them.  I am still planning on adding some plant materials to the base.
       

       
      Skeletal Spearmen (77001)


       
      Skeletal Archers (77017)


       
      Skeletal  Swordsmen (77018)


       
      All the bones skeletons I have painted so far:

       
      And all the skeletons I have ever painted, because I love me some group shots.  The ones in front (and back) was painted over 20 years ago, before I started basing. Miniatures from Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm and of course Reaper.

      This is one of a pot-luck batch of modern adventurer women figures I got from RAFM, a real mixed bag.  Some of them are terrific, some ... kind of goofy.  This one seems to fall a bit closer to the goofy end.  She is in a pose my martial arts friend called "Kill Me Now", and her face is rather unfortunately flattened front-to-back.
       
      I figured I'd paint her up quickly tabletop style for use as a mook or opponent.  I did get a little bored painting her just plain, though, so I gave her Goth-Egyptian makeup.

      So while in the google hangout thing we've been trying, I've been busy.  I thought it might be an excellent opportunity to burn through some of my RAFM that have been lurking about for years, so here's what I did this week.  Some of these will be hilariously infamous to people who have been listening in while I worked.
       
      I started with 3926 Female Druid:
       

       
      Then on to the troll butts, consisting of 3722 Troll Chieftan:
       

       
      And then 3723 Troll Warrior:
       

       
      Then I did 3910 Female Cleric:
       

       
      3733 Lich Summoning Demon:
       

       
      Then the infamous egyptian pope lich... uh... box thing.  (aka 3743 Lich Priest):
       

       
      Then 3610 Hill Cyclops:
       

       
      Then 3909 Male Cleric:
       

       
      And finished off today with my personal favourite... 3737 Lich Magician with Skeletal Rabbit:

      This is another of the Old School cluster I started in March and finished on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
       
      She's the RAFM Ranger (Female) 3903, a classic figure from the early '90s which is still being sold.
       
      For the early '90s she's pretty big.  She fits in well with modern 28mm figures and towers over the little Partha ladies I painted her with.
       
      She's a little cartoony but she has some nice details, including a bird of prey on her right wrist and a feather in her hair I painted up like a bluejay's.  I tried to paint reflections on her sword and armor.

       

       

       

       
      Original WIP is here.

      This is an old RAFM dwarf warrior released in 1989 if I remember correctly. He was released for the 'Death in the Dark' miniature skirmish game that RAFM produced way back in the day. I never played the game, but I do have a few of the miniatures in my hoard. This is one of them.
       
      He's a little short by today's standards, so I decided to give him a little 'step up'.
       
      C and C is very welcome.
       

       

       
       
      ETA---and I can see the mistakes, now that they have blown up a gajillion percent.
