Sounds like you folks are off to a good start!

 

It is so awesome to sit down and hobby with other people!

 

Even though I only get to do it with N.E.M.P.A......::P:

 

 

Sorry, but that was just to good to pass up....

I will ask Hubby if he has anything for either of those dates planned. I will try to do one, probably not both. If the July date is for the 4th of July weekend I'm gonna decline. Driving up on holidays is lame.

Okay, put me down for June 2. Upon further consideration, I realized that the 17th is right in the middle of various graduations, and again, I don't want to drive for that. But yeah, June 2 paint day.

Looks like the weekend of June 3rd is the current target. Presently not sure if I'm looking at Friday (2nd) or Saturday, (3rd), though...? *hassa confused*

I'm actually good either way myself, but I don't know what they have going on Friday evenings; the impression I was given was that Saturday is better.

 

I figure afternoon-into-evening? Three to ??? Earlier? Later?

I also thought it was the Saturday (3rd) and not the Friday (2nd) being looked at. I think 3 is a good start time to maybe 6 or 7? But that's just me.

I would prefer slightly earlier start, maybe 4 or 5, but if no one else is down for that I'll just arrive early ^_^ As for how long, is probably want to head home by 8. Traffic isn't bad by then, so the drive shouldn't be too unpleasant. 

 

I kinda hate driving on the freeways around here, if you hadn't noticed :lol:

 

Also, is there a theme or do we just bring whatever we have to paint? If the latter, look forward to a lot of pumpkins!

Eh..  for now, no theme. If we want to do themes later (say, we get it into our collective noggins to paint Yule Dragons for the holidays or ALL THE SKELETONS or what you have), I'm not going to tell anybody that might not happen. I know better.

The last one they did started around 2PM and ended.. apparently, whenever people got tired of painting. I was Very Late, and thus only caught the tail end, but I got the impression that as long as they had space, painting could continue until we got tired of it.

 

Alright. Looks like I am going to take my notes from this conversation and beard them in their lairs again (this is fine, we need to talk to them about gaming space next weekend), and see what's to be seen.

I also hate driving on the freeways (even though I don't do the driving). 8 sounds like a reasonable end time, traffic on Meridian can be an elf and a half to get down during peak traffic hours.

I might be able to do the first Saturday in June, looks like our gaming day won't be then.  If it's on a Saturday that should make traffic less miserable generally.

I finally remembered to tell Hubby about this :lol: His only objection was if I wanted him to drive. He would be bored though, so he's gonna stay home.

Is he into Catan? Because we're on, and they're gonna do Catan terrain on the same day. I didn't even know that was a thing.

 

Saturday June 3rd, starting around 3PM PDT.

Ending ... whenever we get tired of painting, really. Seven or eight PM, on the schedule, but... y'know, if you paint, and you keep painting, and ... yah.

Um. They made a Reaper Order. They're making space for an MSP rack and a Bones rack. My local-est FLGS is carryin' REAPER PAINTS! Woo!

Tjats how I got my FLGS to carry MSP.  Kept having paint days there.  When he decided to carry paint again, he asked my opinion on which brand to go with.

They already carry P3; they can't carry anything outta GW/Citadel because there's a GW shop across the street and down some from them and I guess there was a non-competition agreement signed. I'm good with that; Citadel largely seems to be overpriced crap and horrible paint-pots (YMMV, mine has been complete pants so far). ^^;

 

So, they have P3, some Gale Force Nine (I think) and Blood Bowl, or whatever the heck that sports brawl miniatures thing is. And, soon, Reaper.

I has a happy. ^_^

Carrying Reaper paint might actually make the trek worthwhile for me.  My closest FLGS won't and has issues with getting Reaper stuff from their distributor.  P3 paint is fine, but I so don't want to have to manually move every bottle of paint I buy to a dropper bottle.  :zombie:

Question. How is the lighting there? And is there space to plug in a small lamp if need be? Just trying to figure out what I should bring.

      Hi all,
       
      In case you couldn't tell, I am trying to upgrade my current painting gear to something that gives me more capability to expand my skill base.  One thing I have recently considered is magnification.
       
      I have heard some folks use reading glasses, and a few that use desk mounted magnifiers.  For those that use them, what makes them worth it? (FWIW, my eyesight is 20/20, I am just trying to get closer without putting the mini right into my face).

      I'm kinda on time!

      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/78657-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2018-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.

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Frostbite:
      Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
      This is pretty self explanatory. 


      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Pending...


      Good luck

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

      [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]
       
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge last year, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. 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.
       
       
      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)
       
      Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78658-janfeb-rpchallenge/
      March/April: 9:
      May/June: 9
      July/August: 9:
      Sept/Oct: 8:
      Nov/Dec: 9:
       
      Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.

      A while back my wife said she'd like to try painting sometime. I said sure and didn't really think about it, then tonight she said she'd like to try. Now I had just primed a bunch of miniatures a week or two ago, had I remembered that passing comment I would have primed one for her too.
       
      When I first got into miniature painting I bought a few bags of skeletons (kind of like the old green plastic army men but they're yellowish skeletons). Size wise these skeletons are larger than a D&D skeleton. I planned to use a few as large skeletons, a minotaur skeleton, or a skeleton statue.
       
      These miniatures were great to learn on, so I got one out for her to paint. These skeletons weren't really meant to be painted and if they're not primed you really need to layer it on. We muscled through though.
       
      I took her step by step through the Reaper Learn to Paint pamphlet. Which is the same way I learned to do skeletons.
       
      First we did a wet application of white followed by Dirty Bone. Next I had her apply a thin wash of Pure Black finishing it with a dry brush of Dirty Bone. 
       
      Everything else got a simple wet layer. Shield and sword were Honed Steel, the helmet and back of the shield were Leather Brown, the pommel of the sword was a mixture (Pure Black, Honed Steel, and a little White), and the sword's decoration was White.
       
      Painting a miniature especially a larger one may have given her a newfound respect for my hobby. I think it came out really well though.

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.
