Nobody needs to feel pressured to paint the group figure if they don't want to or feel they won't have time.  Besides, you don't need to spend more than a few minutes on it, paint a belt pouch, or the sword, or glue rocks onto the base. You're not responsible for the whole figure. 

 

That's what I meant by making it optional....not putting unwanted pressure on people if they would find that timeline stressful - some of us are very slow painters so even doing something small can be daunting in the whirlwind of the week. They should know that it's ok to pass.

 

I don't know. I'm not wording well this week. Mush brain.

I have had a bit of trouble with the group painted figures too because of the way I paint.

 

The way I paint normally, I'm constantly checking the effect over the entire surface.  I often adjust the paint job elsewhere when I see something that could be improved with whatever I have on my brush at the moment.  I'm constantly tweaking and trying things.

 

But in a group paint that would mean painting on top of other people's work, and I can't bring myself to do that.  Even a wash seems impertinent.

 

Clearly there are people who do great with group paints and enjoy them. I might not be one of them.

But did you test them in salt water first?

I certainly hope so. Fun being had would be cool, too.

 Speaking of lead... Is anyone in Bonwirn's group partial to the really old-school lead stuff like Asgard and Archive, or should I not bother to put it in? How about Grenadier and the TSR stuff?

4 looks interesting.

 

Also my name was spelled wrong on the list.    :-)

I suspect, thanks to all the old Ral Partha Dragonlance stuff I have scrounged from the Bay of Evil, that I have sufficient lead in my collection. I do not speak for others, however.

 

Does anyone object to finding random basing materials? No, there will not be actual moss, or lichen (I have a lot of both, but somehow, it seems unwise to ship those who-knows-where)...

I like #4.

Am I last? (What is #4?)

If so, I could fix him up with a base.

      I've got a bunch of these GW Chaos Space Marines taking up space, so I figured I'll paint one or 2 of them every once in a while. Kharne the Betrayer is a pretty interesting guy, so I'm going to work on him first.
       
      Early steps so far; I'm just working on his armor right now. Ignore the color on his arm; that's going to be going away soon.

      Here we have a collection of treasure markers made by various manufacturers ( I'm pretty sure the boots are Reaper, and I know the bags are ) that I've done up for Frostgrave.
