Au-Gust of wind brings the new month's challenge

Recommended Posts

I'm not dead yet! Just...busy.

...I make myself cringe with these puns but that's not the point.


Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here:  The first post as linked will contain the updated totals and grand total pending and the plan is to start getting the graphics sent to all who have completed the months so far soon Personal and grand total now live!



a reminder when submitting to please adhere to the forum show off guidelines. This is a much bigger challenge than I expected and it makes life easier for the mods


Also, please only create a single index post for your links. This means to modify your existing post when you get a new figure finished instead of posting a new one.

This month's challenge is: 4

Bonus Challenge is:

As written in the Illiad:
Sirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion's Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity.
Sirius/Orion's Dog is (roughly) where The Dog Days of Summer have come to be known (the history is more elaborate but that's too much to write here.) So: what exemplifies these hottest days of the year? Fire? Blistering desert winds? Needing to cool off? This should be a cool theme. (ba-dum-tsss)



The deadline Is planned for September 1, Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time).


4 for the exchanges, something new to try
12 for the monsters, who in the dungeons moan
7 for the competition, to please the judges eye
19 for the table top, which will set the tone
9 for the players, doomed to see their characters die
One for the master painter on his ergonomic throne
In the well lit studio where no shadows lie
one tag to hue them all, one tag to bind them
one tag to bring them all and in the forum find them.
In the well lit studio where no shadows lie

I'll be travelling for all of August so I'm not going to be able to finish anything this month.  I've painted over and above what I needed to in the last couple of months to cover August.

I think I caught the Bonus early!

Vourgha the Ogre 02312


In progress:

Hell Hound 03609

4 Kobolds 03064

Snar Mangebelly, Kobold King 03295

Neroli 02946

Vulture Demon (Vrock, Type I Demon) 02532

How many more ?????

Not too bad IMHO, 8 out of 11 in my projected, and 2 of those are year end project completion dates...

Things are going to slow down in September, still grappling with all the newness in painting coming my way!

Frustrating at times, but exhilarating when something comes out right!

      Hey there! 
      I decided to hop back on the RPChallenge wagon! 
      These guys have been languishing on my desk, just in need of some touch-ups and basing. So I knocked those out, and I'm calling them done. They'll be fun to use as a marker or something. 
      I did a WIP on my blog, feel free to go check it out! I update there much more frequently than I post here. 
      Hope y'all enjoy them! C&c is always welcome!

      This is a continuation of a thread started in "More X-Wing Fun", covering stories for a start until some new pilots are trained.  I gave out "The Force Awakens" to a few guys for Christmas and Birthdays in the hopes of expanding the player base.  The group at the local game store seems to have vanished.  So continuing...
      This is the Rebellion News Network (R.N.N.)
      Watchman reporting from somewhere in the Distal Reaches.

                  We encountered a rather strange cosmic anomaly that has thrown us off course; no one seems to know our present whereabouts.  The emergency transmitter has been broadcasting our location since we lost our course lock-on. It has been only forty-five minutes but we have been informed of a locating beacon that has started transmitting a positional fix to home in on.  Evidently this is not a standard type beacon, not matching anything on the Galactic Navigational Charts…             We are, finally, approaching an uncharted planetary body…

                 We have been instructed to close all view ports before we land.  I am placing a Remote Optical Pad on the port that should pass all but the closest detailed external inspection. I plan to activate a Randomized Signal Receiver just before touchdown, and possibly obtain some external video…             So, a Military base of some sort: a Gozanti Cruiser taking off (?), and Y-wing bombers.  Looks like about two squadrons of Kihraxz fighters landing.  Here are two rows of Z-95s, which I am unable to determine how many are present. Looks like a standard type of base construction seen elsewhere.  Hmmm, there is no visible activity of any kind currently, which I can pick out, inside the installation.  
                  Okay we are going down and swinging around just past the base.           
      We have an interesting development, looks like I am picking up stray video signals close by from someone doing a visual scan of us.  They seem to be interested in our weapons mounts. Sorry guys nothing new or special here, same-o, same-o.
      Could this be a dual function base?  I see three Jumpmaster 5000s, an YT1300 and a HWK290.  Also an air patrol of Protectorate Star fighters. Okay feed was terminated.

                  I will complete the report when we liftoff.

      Watchman reporting,
      Good Day

      To continue the thought I moved on to another that has been haunting me from my shelf of shame; the platinum dragon from the Grenadier dragon lords series
      I have to apologize for the phone pics but I had to rush and my wife's business has sort of taken over the spot I keep my light box

      Let's start the season by cleaning out my shelf of shame and accomplish something I've been meaning to do for the last decade or so....
      One of my first big miniature accomplishments I completed as a teenager was the complete painting of the first dragon lords circle by Grenadier the year it came out (in case any of you were wondering how old in actually was) 
      Well I found the set when I was going through my parents things and I wanted to try and do it better with my new skills and paints...  it took about 3 years  it accumulate a second set and then the project got delayed after I completed the black, green, red and white.  Mettalics can be difficult... but no more.  This year I will finish the council!
      So with some renewed interest I took my gold of the shelf and went after it over the holidays, doing the upper scales in Scale 75 metallics and the belly scales using the reaper NMM paint set.

      The Night Goblins Moonclan Grotz venture forth from their fungus-infested caves to do battle in the Nightvault. Being so small and weedy, they compensate by being many. There are nine of them, one more than the eight starter positions on the game board.
      So yeah, I went with the fungal theme... pic heavy, click if you dare!
