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.

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
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

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.

Cellar's top floor, attic's ground

In the house of upside down

Laughing cries, and smiles frown

In the house of upside down

Found is lost, and lost is found

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.
