Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2016 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

[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.



Posting Non-Reaper Figures
When you post in Show off, please use the topic title line for the name of your creation, and use the tags for the manufacturer. That way, you're descriptive and search-friendly at the same time while giving credit where it's due. Use Tags liberally, for manufacturer, name, part number, modifications done, etc. These help our members find your model!

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]


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

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 ("Tianot," Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = month quota

Update on size rules, 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.
Currently - 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:


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



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 monthly thread.


Pending



The objective:
To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via monthly quota
(each monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)


Reward:
Last year a badge was discussed, this year I hope to -actually- have that done.
Or possibly - POSSIBLY for those at reapercon, a "Challenger" badge ribbon for those who stick it out through reapercon - missing no more than 1 month.


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)

An "*" Denotes special monthly details in the following spoiler due to possibly more time being needed to obtain pieces. - Tagging all Show-offs with "RPChallenge" helps immensely in finding the figures.

April: The first modern olympics since ancient times were held in Athens, Greece, 1896. Bonus Challenge 2 is: Make all figures for the month into a diorama honoring the competition, ceremony or competition (winter or summer olympiad, your call)
August: This is the month the first "Time Machine" movie was released. Bonus Challenge 2 is: a figure that's lost in their place of time. A sci-fi mini converted to have a shield and sword or such, or a fantasy mini with sci-fi gear such as a gun, baton/shield, etc.
December: To celebrate the holidays and spirit of giving, your bonus challenge 2 is: make a vignette of 2 figures exchanging gifts - 1 human, 1 non (elf, orc, dragon, whatever) but the items need to look wrapped. Greenstuff, actual paper, a small box with freehand, etc.

OK, Trolls and Ogres count as 2...

 

Cavalry (like the ones on a 25x50 base) is one for the horse one for the rider? 2.

Ooh ooh! Me! I'm working hard to make time this year!

 

I see in the main thread that folks are writing out what minis they are doing. Do we just write a little post like, "yes, I'm doing 4!" and then go back and link to the show-off thread when done? ::o:

Morihalda, if you look here, you will see the usual format people use.

Place holders put in until you know for what you are doing, then edit your post to add things.

When you finish, post in show off and move your figure from 'working on' to 'finished' and link it.

 

Glad to have you aboard!

Just curious...

George

Since they're hypothetically 2 figures, horse and rider, I'd say yes.

Not many, no. I can't guarantee when they'll fall down the line though. The order of some challenges is fluid.

I'd like to participate in this.  Is there a signup thread/official list of participants somewhere, or should I just post completed figures with the appropriate "RPChallenge" tags to participate?

In the first post here, there's an index of the month-to-month links, As explained above, you can just put a placeholder post for it, then as you get your show-offs up, edit that post to contain links to your show-off threads. Essentially you posting in the monthly thread is your sign-up. The "RPChallenge" tags just helps with finding the figures in the show-off forum.

So if I understand correctly?

 

This month's challenge is 4, meaning 4 normal minis or 2 Ogres or 1 khanjira for example.

 

Paint anything you want, when done post in show off and link in the challenge thread?

 

Question, I paint Busts, ( Now working on Tuma) are these like Dragons or like Huge ( Kally, Khanjira?)

That's correct. Last year some people said the absolute value of 1 made them disinclined to paint larger figures. So by adding a value equivalent it lets them do that. They're welcome to count them as 1 if they still want, however.

 

If they are the scale of appropriate dragons, then yes, otherwise I'd need to see a size comparison to say for sure

Tuma from Legendarion is a 120 mm Bust for example.

Some others are like 90mm.

If the bust is closer to the size of Yephima and the like: 2, if it's more like the demon Lord of minotaurs: 3 will be the value. I think that seems fair

      Every now and then, it's fun to give something new a try.  In this case, I had a spare Ingrid lying around since hubby didn't want to paint her, and this all started with me trying to show hubby how I do drybrushing...  Or at least attempt drybrushing, since I'm not all that good at it.  Thankfully, it helped him pick up the basics alongside what was written in the LTPK Core manual...
       
      Then it turned into a downward, flaming spiral, but arguably, in this case, flaming is good. ^_^;;;;  I wondered, is it possible to drybrush an ENTIRE mini...  And even more so, can I do it with just FOUR paints, where two of them had technically already been chosen since I'd started on her cloak, AND none of them could technically be from the same colour group as another (so no reds if you have an orange or pink, etc)?  And even more so, using JUST the #2 flat brush I had picked out before for the drybrushing?
       
      Well, uhmn....  First and foremost, it was fun, and that was the point of it all for me.  Just sit down, have fun, and see where things go.  In short, I'm calling it a draw - I've picked up on a few more things as basics to work from, and I'm fairly proud of that cape, doubly so since it wasn't anywhere near as long to do as other techniques.  Does it sell it as well as layering does?  Nope, but I'm okay with that!
       
      Anyways, onwards to the results of some experimentation to see just what my own limits could be with such a technique, and what kind of colours I can come up with using just 9417 Void Blue, 9432 Desert Sand, 9600 Heart Throb Pink, and 29833 Ash Grey....  For the record, the two I had started with on the cape were Heart Throb pink as well as Ash Grey, since the Ash Grey was used to initially demonstrate what I was doing for drybrushing, and then the Heart Throb Pink was chosen as something that would very much so stand out so he could watch every stroke of the brush...  I wound up liking such, and so rolled forward to do the entire mini with drybrushing.  Oh, right, I'm not counting the primering of the mini, which was done with Grey Liner.... ~_^
       

       
       
       
      The story I'm going with is that it's a cursed gem that steadily corrupts and takes over one's body and soul, and that she's pretty much completely overtaken by it...  Or something, as she's kind of a pink glowing eyed dusty grey skin coloured gnome now, with gear that hopefully looks fairly dated / well aged....

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Stonehaven Ent Troll, a much friendlier looking treeman, from one of the Stonehaven Kickstarters.

      This is Scibor Treeman #3 (SKU 28MFM0151).  Tried to  him dark and evil looking, though the skulls kinda give that vibe as well....

      I had finished the dragon in December last year, but I still had the base to work on. Finally finished this brand new looking clockwork dragon painted with metallic paints and my favorite blue, Nightmare Black this weekend.  I still have another, thinking of doing a rusty/tarnished version sometime.
