8 posts in this topic

Blah, can't win lately.

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/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-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: 9!

Bonus Challenge: The First!

Oh Rats - July 22nd Is attributed as Ratcatcher's Day due to the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. There's too much folklore to get into here - so let's see a ROUS or two!

Bonus Challenge: The Second!

Richard Nixon made proclamation 4071 as National Clown week. The challenge is to make a character that's not sculpted as a clown, to have the garish appearance of one. (I would say the style of Killer Klowns from outer space works here too)

Hard Mode Challenge!
Let's combine two of our favorite things, difficult colors and transparent cloth! Paint a mini of your choice using either Red or Yellow transparent cloth. (or is the term Translucent? I don't remember, I'm not done with my first pot of coffee yet.)

Good luck

what is a ROUS?

Rodents of Unusual Size.   It is a well know phrase from the movie The Princess Bride, (which you need to go find and watch right now). ::D:

I actually have an old Foundry ratcatcher mini primed...maybe this weekend is his time.

 

I think this is a non-commercial link:

It was apparently a monthly promo figure in September 2000.

      So, we have a thread like this already for Reaper miniatures. I thought it would be a good idea to have one for minis from other companies as well.
       
      I have one I'd like to start off with:
       
      Red Box Games minis. I think that Havrik may be my current favorite miniature. I haven't seen a painted version anywhere.  

      Handy Havrik Master Guildsman (RBG0045)

      Hey all, I looked for a thread about this but didn't see one. Anyway, what do people prefer to paint, metal or plastic minis? I just started painting and have only done plastic. I've seen pictures of some metal ones and they seem to have crisper details. I see they offer both options for a lot of minis on the reaper store, wanted to see what people think? Thanks!

      I just got into miniature painting and decided to post on the forum to get some feedback and advice. This is only the second miniature I've ever painted. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out despite my lack of experience. I'm thinking of dry brushing his back a bit more for an even more intense frost/ice effect. I plan on varnishing and basing him as soon as the bases I ordered arrived. Any CC is welcome thanks for looking!

      This is Reaper 3789 Fishwife and Crone.  These are the metal versions of the miniatures coming in Bones 4 as part of the Dreadmere set.
      Painted up for tabletop gaming use.  I painted the fish as a delicious deepwater fish from Norway called "Uer".  I have fond memories fishing for these at the shore of the Finnmark fjord, where the drop off was extremely deep.  I was sad to find these fish are now considered endangered.

      These crocodiles have been on my "I want to paint" list for a long time, they finally made it to the front of the line.
       
      First up some Ral Partha Crocodiles from the RIver Denizens set (31-033).   The set also includes a hippo and a submerged hippo, which is somewhere in the lead mountain.  I had picked up an extra crocodile at a convention long ago.
       

       
      I also painted up the Reaper lead Dire Crocodile (65107).  I was happy to see his brother in the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it would be swell if this guy made it into bones as well.  I was about to start the lead version of the brother as well, when my husband piped up and said he wanted to paint it.
