The Carp of Smiting (+5) is a Thing.

I also keep a Vorpal Swordfish around for the rare case of something being immune to bludgeoning. :/

 

I'm sure there are much more frustrating scheduling snafus and hiccups, but ... wow.

I'm going to SMACK THEM.

So, they have a paint day scheduled on the 12th. They didn't bother to mention this until I pointed out that we're an open event...

ETA: 2PM to 7PM.

 

So, looks like we're on anyway.

Blerg, I definitely won't be able to attend. That's a Wednesday ::(:

I assumed it was supposed to be the 12th of August? Either way I'm not sure if I'll be there, I probably couldn't make a Wednesday work and next month my nieces and SIL are in town from Maryland then. I might be able to come and stay a short while but it will greatly depend on what we're doing then.

:huh: ... whut?

August 12th is a Saturday. I checked! Twice! :wacko: :blink:

 

 ... I think I forgot to put the month on it. Probably because I was feeling tired, and stupid, because headache and people were being frustrating (have I mentioned, I hate people?), telling me first that they were booked on weekends through Sept. (Whut?!), and only mentioning that the reason the 12th - the day I originally wanted to schedule! - was booked was because they already had a paint thing scheduled! But they didn't mention this until I pointed out that I wasn't trying to schedule something private. UGH. I swear, this was made far more difficult and stupid than it needed to be.

 

... so, I'mma take responsibility for that round of confusion. :unsure:

ugh. It's not your fault, it's mine. It's so early in the month I was thinking we were still talking about July. Even though I know the July meet already happened. 

 

Just ignore me me while I sit over here and scold myself. :mellow:

Nono .. no need for that. We're all dumb sometimes. We're allowed. ^^;

 

If we didn't make mistakes, we'd probably be perfect, and that's no fun at all!

Right. Well, I don't know who's available this weekend.

 

In point of fact, I don't know if we're going to have space! But as far as I know, assuming anybody remembered other than me, we are scheduled a paint day this Saturday. Two PM to .. whenever we get tired of the card players, or they come to outnumber us. Or something.

God I wish I could go to this. But I have too much to deal with, with packing and helping my dad. 

 

Plus all my minis are packed up ::(:

Oooh. We'd like that, we would.

But as long as he gets a job, the dance of joy will happen, because that's a good thing. ^^

 

Sadly, we found out last week he didn't get it. :down:

 

I will post here whenever I'm going to be visiting Seattle, though, because I'd love to try and make it to one of these someday! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Well, pants. To both. And /double pants/ to Mr. Boot not getting the job. >.<

 

I'unno if I'll go, Ma'al ain't what I would call portable. On the flip side, there's all the 'ooh, what're you painting' stuff that's generally amusing, and this time I can actually answer the question.... (leaving aside the whole bit with the bitty little brush). So I remain on the fence.

I definitely can't make it. We'll be in Seattle all day tomorrow with the family.

Pants!

Well, at least that means we probably won't be competing for very much tablespace. Even if I only take Maal and the paints I need to work on her, I only take up a corner or so ...

 

 ... and they got in a whole rack of Army Painter, too.

There seems to be some kind of weird paint-based delay with Reaper stuff that I'm not certain of, but ... I keep hoping this will be the weekend we'll blunder in and there will be glorious bones all over everywhere. *shrug*

I should be good to make it next month as long as it's not the 16th as I will be out of state. We're finally taking our honeymoon. But that's the only Saturday we have anything going on next month.

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

      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

      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)
