they'll probably remember better next time. ...

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.

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.

      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.
