Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2017 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

So, anyone planning to fingerpaint a microbust of a horror creature??

 

Very interesting challenges.  And since I still haven't decided my Jan/Feb plans yet, I might give one or more a try!

In monochrome? ::P:

I think there's crippling size limitations on your fingers with that, but if you can pull it off, go for it

im going to skip the finger painting - but the micro bust sounds kinda fun. 

I am currently painting up the fire dragon 77109  - it is relatively small, but fits best on a 3" base.  is that 2 or 3 figures worth?

That guy's a 2.

 

Keep in mind...you can finger paint a skeleton (or a slime) and it fulfills the criteria.

I think now that this is bi-monthly, I'll give it a go.

I finished DDS2 in January... that's 5 adventurers, a dragon and a crapton of terrain... I assume that completes my number quota for Jan/Feb? Even if not, I have 3 figures that I have to finish by mid-February and then the bonus challenges will push me further beyond quota completion.

 

I'm especially looking forward to having some fun with fingerpainting...I already know which figure I'm going to do.

I'm intrigued by the notion of the microbust.  

 

I've selected a candidate, but I've never really made such severe modifications to a model before.  Unfortunately it's metal, so won't have the luxury of being able to cleanly cut away bonesium.  Now, I've snipped off a broccoli base, filed down parts, and shaved off flash, but I've never tried to cut through the main mass of a models body.  What tool do you use to cut through without distorting the model too much?

Jewelers saw would do it. Perhaps a very fine blade on a hacksaw?

I was just re-reading the bonus challenges; by classic horror creature, you mean vampire, mummy, Frankenstein's monster, stuff like that, right?

Or do slasher movie villains, aliens, and stuff like that count as well?

      I'm kinda on time!

      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!
      (Is this a re-hash? I don't recall.)
      Fall! Modify/paint a mini/minis to be falling/fallen. (Translate fallen how you will.)

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      December 14th is National Bouillabaisse Day.  For those unfamiliar, this is a Fish Stew from southern France. Paint a mini that incorporates a fish motif.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Under Wraps:
      Paint a mini so that anything that any armor-weapons-cloth-etc looks like it's patterned wrapping paper. This is assuming a humanoid figure. Dragons or such apply the same challenge to the whole body.

      Stop the presses!
      Bonus, The third!
      With the breaking news of our beloved space pope leaving Reaper - let's see what you can paint up as a tribute to him. Bonus points for actually making a "bryanzilla" mini accurate to the avatar.

      Good luck

      The game is made up and the points don't matter

      All I did was cut off the integral base and glue them on painted bases from CMON.  Another 4 done!
       
      Reaper Bones:
      Invisible Rogue 77449
      Invisible Wizard 77450
      Invisible Cleric 77451
      Invisible Warrior 77453

      Balazar, the gnome summoner (Reaper 89023) was fun to paint.  That mould line running down the side of his hat thing was not that visible when I painted him.  Oh well, another one done, yay!
