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!

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.

      my second attempt at painting a Reaper miniature?
      Any thoughts - not sure how light to go on the skin - or how to finish his facial features
       
      cheers

      Hello! Long time no posting. I have been getting back into painting as a regular thing, so I hope to be here more often!
       
      Anyways. I hope I picked the correct category of the forums for this.
       
      So I have put together a group painting even during the course of Adepticon at the group hobby area. We are going to be painting a Fire Giant Queen, bones or metal. It is open to anyone and just a great way to meet other painters and see how we all interpret the same miniature.
       
      Just grab a Fire Giant Queen, prep her, and bring her. I have not signed up for any events other than the crystal brush at adepticon, so I plan on being at the hobby area alot. I'll probably have a little sign to make it easier to find those of us who are doing this together. This is a super informal, pop in and out as you can, kind of thing. Mostly just to meet other painters and have a good time.
       
      If this is not cool, I apologize.

      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.
