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.

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.

      Well,
       
      After a long time of having only posted WIPs and being not able to finish something, here is another Show Off.
       
      Actually she is already a bit older, but - a finished miniature is a finished miniatures ...
       
      I painted her as some kind of a test using some new washes and trying some techniques. Came out pretty decent, I think.
       
      The only mistake I made back then was to give her a coat of mat laquer in the end. That did some frosting (a problem that ruined the arcane spellmaster later on), but opposite to the other figures I lost using laquer, I somehow managed to save most of her. Well, one of her eyes is a bit blind and on some detail shots you can see the leftovers of the frosting.
       
      But nevertheless - I managed to try out some techniques regarding the skin and the clothes and it somehow makes me proud.
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      P.S.: Yes - yes - the frosting on the base is intentional. A friend suggested that I should try a late autumn base with first pieces of snow and ice - like in "The house of flying daggers".

      Here's my take on this cute little guy. I tried to do more glazes on him than the way I normally paint, and his eyes are violet, which I think came out ok. Wishing I'd been able to get the huge mold line off his head but oh well. He's still adorbs.

      Painted mainly just by drybrushing. The sculpt screamed grizzly bear, so I tried to emulate those colors.


       
      I think this is my quickest figure yet, and one of my favorites. Any advice and critiques are appreciated!
    • By Fire_Eyes
      My first figure of the year, and also my first speedpaint (AKA I tried not to get perfectionist over every detail)
       

       
      I followed the kit's instructions on the cloak, then did my own thing on the rest, which accidentally wound up being pretty similar to most of the other ltpk Anirions I've seen.
       

       
      This wasn't my favorite sculpt, and the mold lines were terrible, especially on her hand, but I was able to practice and learn a lot by painting her. Any critiques and advice for future figures are welcome and appreciated!
    • By Paradoxical Mouse
      So, since the RPChallenge Requests a Show-Off, here's my first point for this year! I'm really proud of her!
      I'm not sure which of the starting survivors she is, but...

       
      Better Pictures (edit):

       
      Critique would be appreciated. I will admit, I used too light a skin color for the OSL to look right over, and it is toned down enough that you can't really tell in person. I wanted to give the lantern a soft glow, rather than a bright one, to capture the hopelessness that is Kingdom Death.
