Hey everybody, just wanted to give you guys a quick update on whats going on over here, before we jump into the miniature challenge segment. We are nearing completion of our first set of sculpts for our commissions and out online store. Also we recently purchased out very own pressure casting chamber and we have all the mold making materials on order.

 

As we begin winding down the February Miniature Challenge, with just over 4 hours left to submit. We would like to thank all of you who participated , you did a wonderful job on your entries, and we will begin grading them soon. Within the next few days you should see your name and the amount of points you have earned, appear on our website, under the painter standings. Link in signature.

 

We would now like to announce the theme for the March Miniature Challenge. This month your challenge is to paint up a miniature to represent your favorite console RPG videogame character. Whether it be Cloud from Final Fantasy 7, or your favorite character from the Dragon Quest series or any other Japanese RPG. We wish you all luck and cannot wait to see the entries start flooding in.

 

 

Please note that characters licensed by any D&D game do not qualify for the theme of a video game character, the idea behind these contests is not to just paint a mini, it is to creatively interpret a miniature to represent a character that it clearly is not. (ie: cloud and link are acceptable entries, Drizzt and Conan are not) if you are in doubt , ask before you start an entry. If you decide to go against this rule, you will still get points , however they will be greatly reduced.

 

If for whatever reason, you are not a fan of console RPG videogames, you may choose a character from any other videogame you like.

 

And remember to take plenty of pictures of your progress, and provide a picture reference to the character you are painting.

 

For complete rules and guidelines please follow the link below.

All submissions are due before midnight on April 1st

 

Good Luck and Happy Painting!

I was a big Ultima fan when I was younger. If I had time, I'd do a diorama...at least it gives me an idea for my first dio. The Avatar and Companions confront Batlin.

Once again I'm left with no miniatures that spring to mind as right for the characters that I think of for this, heck even CW's Valkyrie will have wait (for me) for the Bones stuff to arrive (& mine will ship near last & take 2 weeks to arrive).

I am So In. Soooo many ideas...

off the top of my head I would LOVE to do a mini based on a darksoul character, think skimpy armor, shield in one hand and two handed sword in the other and it defiantly fits into the dreaded Jrpg category, I was tempted to throw my laptop more than a few times playing this game. But does it have to be an identifiable character from a game like cloud?

Ahah... I plan on cheating outrageously.

 

Video game RPG eh? Wellll I might just do my evil rogue or good wizard from baldur's gate 2... that should be pretty easy to find a miniature for.

      My challenge is to finish the blue bin in the coming two weeks: 
       

       
      There's some extra random stuff I might get to. I'm also starting with Mrs Claus and the cat dragon. 
       
      And if that's not enough, one of my KS projects fulfilled:

      I'm a bit of a glutton for punishment, so have managed to talk myself into another rainbow dragon... Since I have ol' Pathfinder Red sitting in the Drawer of Doom and no real plans for him, I thought I'd randomize him (not that I don't have enough other projects that haven't been finished (or even started))..
      So, here goes:
      3 Star challenge on Pathfinder Red (#89001)
      Primary : Blush Pink (although I might substitute in Breast Cancer Pink since I have 3 bottles of that from last month!)
      Secondary: Brilliant Green (needs to  be ordered or fetched from the FLGS - I have Forest Green but that's too dark to match, i think)
      Tertiary: Heather Blue (do not have this, but do have a Sample bottle from a past order that is very close and will be used in its place.. 
       

       
      I smidged some paint on a sheet of paper for comparison and have decided that Blush Pink is much brighter than BCPink, so I'll probably use the Blush (unless I decide to go thematic again and donate this fellow to a survivor since I know a few).  Also, Forest Green is indeed way too dark to substitute in for Brilliant Green..

      When Super Dungeon Explore first hit the scene, I almost immediately wanted to start making characters from some of my favorite 16 bit JRPGs.
      For some reason, my favorite characters in Final Fantasy 6 were always the least central ones, but the chances that Sodapop were going to make a suitable Mog or Umaro mini was pretty low.  So, when I saw that a local Blood Bowl commissioner had some Big Foot Minis for sale, I had to jump at the chance to make an Umaro.  I only had to adjust the hair a little and it was perfect.
      For Mog, I started out with a Giri creep from the Super Dungeon Goro set (I ended up with lots of extra Giri after the Forgotten King Kickstarter.
      Anyway, here they are:

      Hello all! 
      I can't believe that i've missed this forum so far!
       
      My name's Andrew Cothill and i'm trying to learn to sculpt miniatures in 3D (Zbrush). I've been at it for about 9 months now. I don't mind brutal crits so please feel free to tear into it and i'll try to taken them on board for my current WIP =)

      Here's the concept i was working from by the super talented Klaher Baklaher

      Here's a sketchfab link to the model too. It's heavily decimated to fit on the site

      Thanks for looking and have a good day!

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.
