Box of Goodwill round 5 picture/chatter thread

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.

The order was completely randomly generated.

(I rolled dice::D:)

 

But did you test them in salt water first?

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

Nope. Let the results fall where they will!

 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.

      This is one of the figures I nabbed from the recent BoGW.  Our group is currently running Rise of the Runelords, so my husband the DM was very happy to gain another ogre.  It is hard to tell in the photos, but the nasty looking sword in back was done in folkart color shift green flash paint for a nasty looking magic weapon.

      This is an old Mage Knight figure that I slightly converted and repainted. He was holding a comically undersized flail in his left hand, so I cut it off and replaced it with a halberd from an old GW Chaos Warrior I had in my bits box. After that, it was just a matter of repainting him for use on the tabletop. He'll make an interesting BBEG in some game I haven't created yet.
       

       

       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      These are 3 little imps/demons that I pulled off the melt table at Reapercon last year. I'm not sure of manufacturer, so if you recognize them, please let me know. I think they may be from a 15mm figure range.
       
      I bashed these guys out over he course of a couple evenings about a week ago. Thanks for looking.
