Cool! I'm hoping to have Kyra and some Mouslings. I've been working on some Imperial Guard so I can mess around with basing for The Defeated. Might bring them as well.

Hey guys I am interested in maybe coming to one of these.  Unfortunately I can't make it this month as my daughter has some ballet stuff going on.  

 

This sounds like a lot of fun!  I am new to painting and my friends are uninterested so it would be nice to meet some people in the area who have the same hobby and interest and maybe pick up some new tips and techniques.

 

Do I need to do anything to register or can I just stop by and do some painting?

Just drop on by. Bring something to paint and something to paint with (or buy stuff at Total Escape, of course; they're nice folks and the store is quite good.)

 

This month you know about. Next month we'll meet on the 19th, barring any weirdness.

 

Hope to see you soon.

Nope, just bring yourself, and stuff to paint.  If you don't have paint, we share, and there is always plenty of choices amongst the regulars.

Yeah, I had fun going to my last one, but sadly with family issues I'm never able to make it, partially because it's a bit too far for me to easily get to. :(

And it is nice.  We have folks come from as far as Colorado Springs (not of late), and we have regulars from Greeley, Longmont, Conifer, Arvada, Aurora.  I think we used to have someone from Sterling too, but that may just be my ASL group I am thinking about.

Where is Total Escape?  I am coming from Fort Collins.

NW Corner of 120th Ave and Main St in Broomfield.

 

The easiest way from Ft. Collins might be straight down US-287 to the light at Midway in central Broomfield (if you get to the overpasses, you have gone too far). Turn East (left) on Midway and continue to Main St. Turn South (right) on Main St. The store is in a strip mall on your right, there is a Burger King in the parking lot.

Address: 

6831 W 120th Ave
Suite C
Broomfield, CO 80020

 

(Google Maps shows the location correctly.)

I-25 or 287.  287 is slower as you need to trudge through Loveland and Longmont, but I-25 is always a crapshot even early Saturday.

      [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)

      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.

      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

      So what's the least expected thing that you had to paint of all the miniatures you've painted?
       
      This evening, thanks to shallow details on some orc heads, I've been painting orc nostrils because the noses weren't showing up after the wash.
       
      Prior to that, I had to paint entire faces (the eyes) on some other boardgame miniatures whose right face pretty much didn't exist.
       
      I think highlighting orcling / snotling butts might be up there as well...

      So I just dropped nearly 100$ at my FLGS on reaper master series paints, only to discover upon closer inspection that they are actually pigments. I'm a beginner/moderate painter, so I didn't quite realize there was a difference. After conversing with one of my more hardcore painter friends, i'm even less sure than I was before. He tells me that the pigments are different from the paints and that pigments are usually only used to tint paints, but then i went to the website and saw that everything there comes in the same kind of bottles with all the same names. It seems strange to me that reaper would sell only pigments and not paints, and now I'm very very confused. So let me just pose this simple question:
       
      I purchased this bottle, and many others like it:
       

       
       
      Can I paint my Bones minis with this and some water?
      and as a follow up question:
      Did i just bone myself out of 100 bucks?

      Ok so early May kinda train-wrecked for me and my family so I really haven't had much time to write it up until now, apologies for the delay.

      May and June 2017

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Beware the Batman. In May 2014, this series first aired on Adult Swim. Paint a character you want to resemble a hero or villain from the series. Characters in the series may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beware_the_Batman

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Spirit of Summer. No, no the mini, but you can do that if you wish. Paint a mini that embodies the spirit of summer to you. It can be a character in certain colors, a water scene, or (a personal favorite) a campfire.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Roulette Triad.
      I used a highly scientific method of shooting rubber bands at the wall above my paint racks and seeing where it falls to choose three colors. All three must be used, and only these three (If you have specific colors: Great! if not, reasonable approximations are allowed, please ask if you have a question)
      Clear Yellow
      Carrot Top Red
      Gem Purple

      Good luck
