The lighting isn't terribad, but it isn't what I would call good either; a light is probably a good idea. I will try to bring a power bar, but I'm not sure what the plug economy in general is going to look like.

 

At the same time, some point /is/ made about that being the gaming area, and so many of us are gaming from laptops or tablets these days that I would hope there is power back there!

 

Oi! @OneBoot! Wanna come paint with us?!

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. 

I always travel to paint days with a couple of portable OTT lights, a spike bar and an extension cord...

Nothing will ruin your paint day like not being able to paint!

I travel 2.5 hours plus to paint, so better to have extra stuff that I can leave in the car if not needed...

So come to the next one. Or the one after that; I have every intention of this becoming a semi-regular, once-a-month THING.

Not sure if I'll succeed, but that's the risk you take.

I'd love this to be a once a month THING. Husband has his social things that he gets to do but I don't really due to either difference in interests or anxiety.

I'd love to have a social thing to do, even if it means facing the dreaded freeway. So I'm down for this being a once a month THING.

I will certainly plan on it the next time I'm in the area! ^_^ My sister and her family live in Issaquah, so occasional visits do happen.

Aaaaaaaah!!  The first one is scheduled for two days from now, right?!?  Somehow I thought I'd be able to come and now I'm not sure.  My kids have been passing around a cold which I may or may not have been fighting off.  I am not prepared.  I'd like to come, but it may come down to whether my 9th grader needs me at home to crack the homework whip--it's getting to the deadline for handing in work and she's going to need summer school if she doesn't get her English stuff handed in.  

 

Being responsible sucks.  :down:

Cursed adulting!

 

And, yah, I think the third is about two days from now. ^^;

No idea who all is likely to show, just hoping for more than only me.

 

Outta curiosity, for purposes of continual scheduling, is roughly first/second Saturday useful for everybody? I say 'roughly' because I have a gaming session that goes every other week, and it might land on the same days. I can't /quite/ paint and game at the same time (and my fellow gamers are kinda noisy... but, yanno. Dragonlance..).

Generally Saturday afternoons are a good time, I can't predict which ones we'll be free and which ones we won't.  But I hope to make it there some time!

I think the first or second Saturday of the month is good for me. Husbands game group meets when they can, not on a regular basis but about once every 4-6 weeks. I'll find out more and get back to you. And barring some sort of something happening I will definitely be there this Saturday.

Lookin' at a calendar (for the correct month, even!), it looks like July 1st is free on my end, so I'll try and set up the one after this for that Saturday; give everybody a good long while for plotting. ^^;

 

In the meantime, hopefully.. there will be a good crowd, and many Bones!

.. sadly, I don't expect to have my paint station this weekend; that's still in Mail Delivery Limbo (Shroedinger's Mailbox!). Ah, well. ^^;

I hope it goes splendidly for you! ^_^ I wish I could make it, but an 8 hour round trip is a little much for a single painting day. Hopefully I'll be in town sometime during one of these!

 

Huzzah!

Scheduling snafu (gorrafuzzypants, do these people /not/ talk to each other?!) means we're not actually on the schedule for tomorrow, we're apparently on for the 17th. ... Whut? Okay. Whatever. We'll show up anyway and they can handle it, because ... because I said so. It has been implied we will get a front table, rather than a back table, so there may be light and curious folks. Eh.

Feel free to turn up on the 17th, if possible; it IS Free RPG Day, and there will probably be other goodies....

 

However, I am going to make damn sure this does not happen again for July, because I am NOT AMUSED (even if it may be partially my fault. That actually makes it much less funny. Later, it will be very amusing, but right now, I am kind of frothing and ready to throw actual fireballs, rather than candy).

In that case I'll plan on showing up tomorrow and see what happens.

      Blah, can't win lately. Con, sick, travel, travel, drama....sorry I'm late y'all.

      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.

      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!
      September 25th is national comic book day! Paint a mini to resemble a comic book character of your choice (Bonus points* for any from the "League of regrettable superheroes/supervillains"

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      3 Families of color only. The 'typical' halloween colors of orange, purple, and black. You can only use colors that have "orange" "purple" or "black" as part of their names, and all 3 colors must be present on the figure.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Modify a mini (besides the gelatinous cube/large fire elemental) to have an actual flickering light-source inside of it (with the battery concealed somehow), like a jack-o-lantern. The more creative the better, obviously.

      Good luck

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

      Hello every body, this will be here not to show off anything amazing or impressive. Just something that took me five and a half hours to do. Nothing to impressive or anything like that. Its a fairly simple paint job for this old miniature. It has been sitting on my portable painting desk for many years now, and I felt like it was time to finally paint it. So I could use it in Dungeons and Dragons if I ever played a Dwarf again or just to use in anything with Dwarves in it really. With the new system of being able to upload photos straight to here from a device, it may be a little weird. I have never used the new Reaper system for photos so lets see how it works. I will still be explaining everything to the best of my ability. All of the paints i used besides one were all Reaper Paints. So, lets get started.
       

       



       
      Okay, so these four photos are of the Dwarf miniature as a whole. I had to paint over the entire mini with black because it had taken some damage to the prime that covers it. After i had painted the entire thing I let it dry and took the pictures so I wouldn't forget to take them.
       



       
      Next I painted on the metallic colors that i knew i was going to do and I could see. This included the small amount of Chain mail showing under his massive beard, the large Warhammer and his shiled. These were done first in Shadowed Steel. Then I did the few detail pieces that I wanted in Antique Gold. After I painted those few things I realized that I hadn't painted the Rune Stone he is standing on. So I quickly mixed up a wash of the color... well Stone. I forget who the Stone wash is made by but I added some water and I think Glaze Medium. Chaoshead will yell at me in the comments to tell me i'm wrong since i was using most of his paints. Anyways, I did a couple of coats of the Stone wash and moved on to let that dry for a while.
       


       
      While I was letting the Stone wash dry I went on to other colors. I pulled the Rainy Grey out to do the fur that lines the inside of his cape, not realizing I had missed some it will show up later. This step was fairly easy when I was painting it on, but then again the entire thing to me seemed easy and I don't really know why.
       



       
      After the inside of the cape i moved on wards and started to paint Leather. I used Ruddy Leather for anything leather on the Miniature. I started with the gloves then moved on afterwards.
       





       
      Alright, in these few photos I painted more leather onto his sleeves, belt pouch, boots and the bottom of his Chain mail shirt. This step frustrated me because I accidentally painted over some of the metal, so I had to go back and paint the metallics again. I then moved on to some detail work that may have taken the most time to do... I think.
       
       




       
      On the Rune Stone, I used Breonne Blue to add some color to the... Stone. XD I wanted to paint the runes from the beginning of this small project. I think the Breonne was a good choice for the runes in the first place.
       


       
      Here I had finally painted his massive beard. I used Mahogany Brown for his beard since it was the only one within my small amount of paints that would work. I liked my choice of color for his beard though.
       



       
      In these three i painted the trim of the cape with the Ruddy Leather. I painted it very carefully to make sure I didn't get any on anything else. I already had to repaint Metallic colors earlier and i didn't want to do it again.
       

       
      Continuing with the cape i painted it Leaf Green and had to do it a couple of times to make sure it was one solid color.
       

       
      Painted the face with Tanned Skin and then used Grass Green to paint his eyes. Again this is all just a super simple paint job for this mini and is just meant to be a good, fun, little thing I like to do.
       

       
      As a final thing to finish this Miniature off was a nice little touch that I thought of last second. I painted the small heart on his cape with Blood Red. 
       






       
      The Dwarf is done! He is done in all of the simplest ways to paint that I know how. XD If you all enjoyed and have some tips or anything to leave for myself. Please leave a comment and i guess stay tuned to here or another one I post in the future.

      Yah, I buckled. Lookit my arm, it's /all/ bent outta shape.. *cough*
       
      Right then! So, there's a dragon in pieces on my desk. I have chosen my challenge level (3 STARS!) and rolled my colours.. and gurgled, because my dice roller thinks it's funny.
       

       
      So! My primary colour is Lava Orange. My Secondary is Imperial Purple, and my miscellaneous colour is Cloudy Grey. Using Pure White and Pure Black for shading, and otherwise using /no other colours/, I will paint this dragon!
       
       ... no. Really. It'll be a nice change from all the !%[email protected] draconians....

      Edit: AH this forum is so unlike what I'm use to I have no idea how to format this sorry!
      Double edit: All my text is in the pictures what is this forum even help im drowning in quotes and i dont know how to get rid of them
       
      So! I just started painting, like... a week ago at most? After a trip to the game store to buy spell cards for our campaigns (4, each with a different dm, of player levels levels 3,1,1,1) we noticed and decided to invest in minis.
      Since I'm DMing two games (one with players who are not coming back, so likely a dead game, and one thats ongoing) and I'm the crafty one, I'm the most excited, and the one doing the actual painting.
       
      I wanted to try out different tequniques on the goblins, so they all look kinda different. I did basecoats on five of them, two black, three brown, and then I painted on with no base (and found that, so far, thats my favorite meathod)
