12 posts in this topic

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.
http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-chatterquestions/
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.

March and April 2017

Your challenge is: 9!

Bonus Challenge: The First!
Given that (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) spring starts in this time frame - Modify (if necesseary) and Paint a figure (doesn't matter what) in a jumping/springing pose

Bonus Challenge: The Second!
April 22nd is National Jelly bean day. Paint a mini in tribute to your favorite flavor jellybean (bonus* points if you choose tutti fruttti)
*The game is made up and the points don't matter.

Hard Mode Challenge!
"Disrupted" Light source (from any direction but above.) Paint any mini you choose in any scheme you choose, but the lighting must come from the sides or below, as if it was filtering through some other opaque object to disrupt the lighting. Ex: The character is standing close to a chainlink fence, so it casts a 'shadow grid' on them, or perhaps through an old window with thick beams so the there's a large + shaped shadow being cast on them.  Again please refer questions to the main thread.

Not like there's ANY chance for something on April 1st...

I am going to consider each vehicle, and each base of Infantry as 1 28mm mini....

.(After all 27x15= 405, 405mm/28mm=14.4, so I think that's fair!)

What is the Circle worth???

Let's play a game, shall we?

Can you paint a mini in the dark? It's a simple premise really, set up your pallet and workspace like normal, but before you put brush to paint and paint to mini - lights out. If you can barely see your hand in front of your face? Probably a tad too bright in there. It can be done, just not easily.

      Expansion sets for the Blood and Plunder tabletop game.  Live on Kickstarter.
       
       
      About this project
      Blood is on the horizon! The iron grip of Iberian Domination is eclipsing the 17th century Caribbean as the world races to seize its spoils. Join the emerging Dutch Republic as it battles for its place among the established European powers or defy foreign incursion as a Darien King in this expansion to Blood and Plunder, No Peace Beyond the Line.
      No Peace Beyond the Line is the first major expansion for the Blood and Plunder miniatures game. This expansion will revolve around the No Peace Beyond the Line book that will feature:
      Optional rules for playing games at a greater scale or with more than two players A campaign system Special characters that players will be able to add to units New units and factions for the existing nationalities New nationalities including the Dutch and Native Caribbeans New ships: Piragua, Fluyt and  the Galleon!  Factions for expanded nationalities such as Danes, Swedes, Prussians, and Portuguese This Kickstarter allows us to raise the funding needed to expand our product line to this scale in a short period of time as opposed to having slow, continuous releases. Firelock Games is excited to have the opportunity to continue expanding the world and timeline of Blood and Plunder in order to create a more exciting and expansive line for its player base.

      Got these guys last winter. Think they are super cute. Huz wanted them more robotic and less like tree ornaments so I kept them pretty standard. The bases are from Secret Weapon. I didn't know until I opened them recently that I had an extra of one, but no extra arms, so he's a little more broken than the others. Thanks for reading!

      I decided to paint up these guys like real snakes. So they are sort of based off of a king snake, a python, a diamondback, and a black mamba. I think they make for interesting/unique yuan-ti and am pleased with how most of them turned out. Hope you enjoy, thanks for reading!

      Painted this guy up for a friend to use for his character. He wanted him with short hair and without a beard. I tried to cut off the beard without it looking too weird but I'm not sure it worked out well. Anyways, that's why it's not painted. Chopping off his ponytail seemed to work out better. Thanks for reading!
