Massive Voodoo 2017 Challenge

Peace and blessings,  brothers and sisters. The crew at Massive Voodoo have let loose their call for their 2017 Challenge.

 

The crew at Massive Voodoo set out challenges to their viewers in order to push our abilities past our comfort zone. This year they have two (2) Challenges for us!

 

1. Create a base using water effects.

 

2. Paint a Disney Infinity character.

 

There are limitations in this challenge - like on the basing Challenge: the goal is to create a base with a water effect, not to focus on a figure. They said we can use a small animal to accent the base, and Reaper has some awesome Familiars we can use. Also, Infinity Challenge is one figure, not multiple, which allows us to focus doing our best on one figure. Full details can be found by clicking on the link. 

 

I heard that little voice too: "I cannot win this! Why should I even try?" 

Well shut the front door little-voice-in-my-head! 

 

I know I have much to learn and improve in my own Art, which is why this is a Challenge. We cannot lose: we win just by pushing past our comfort zone and learning more about our beloved hobby. :D

 

I said it before and I will keep repeating it: I believe in you. I see the awesome work you all do, and you believe in me too. That love helps me believe in myself and makes me want to work harder to push past my own limits.

 

Plus we get to paint a character from the Disney franchise - which includes Marvel and Star Wars! I didn't even consider painting these as well as playing with them! ( Don't judge too harshly. Elsa kicks butt.)

 

For a full list of characters available, check 'em out here:

You can find them individually and inexpensively on eBay. 

 

Now, if you will excuse me: I have some Reaper Familiars to peruse. :D

 

May your efforts be rewarded and blessed!

I already sent in my Female Snake/Seamonster (Queen Shaernagathu) for the water base entry in this contest. I won't post final pics on here as that'll get me DQ'd from the contest, but I'm looking forward to posting after reapercon as I'll also enter her there into the Open Category.

I should take a shot at this.  Been a while since I've played with water effects, but they have come out for me petty well in the past...

I should too.  I've been in a slump but I have a diorama idea that will require a bunch of water, and I've never tried any.  So some test pieces may be in order.

My piece won't be judged. It has a full figure in it. The contest for water bases is supposed to be just about the water, no full figures allowed. My bad for not fully reading the rules. 

 

I may try to do a water base to enter it, but I'll have to do it between projects.

      Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts.
      I was really pleased with these Trandoshan.  The method from Sorastro really worked well for the skin of these reptilians.
      All of the skin was painted the same.  Then, all 4 had different washes with either a little more blue, green, brown, or sepia than the other.
      It really shows in the blue and sepia Trandoshan.  I will try it out on some of the metal and Bones Reaper Lizardmen I have.

      I didn't want to paint one of these as Bossk, since Fantasy Flight Games released a Bossk expansion figure.
      So, I gave one of them a "salvaged" Rebel Fighter Pilot Flight Suit.  I was least pleased with the colors of it.  It comes out a little to stark in my mind.
      I also tried to give one a desert camo, and another a snow camo or urban camo.  I was most pleased with the outcome of the blue one, so I am giving the detail shots of him.
       
      C&C Welcome.

      Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts, here is Chewbacca.
      Again, I have been following Sorastro's guides.
      This figure was new for me in the use of multiple layers of dark wash over and over.  It was about 5 layers.
      The pictures show this sort of granular/peculiar highlight.  I checked on the model, and it is areas that picked up drybrushing that never toned down well with wash.
      It's all good.  I painted Chewie very quickly.
      C&C Welcome.

      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!

      She stared at her adversary with cool and calm calculation, the Jedi was nervous... she saw the fear in his eyes, yes... GOOOOOOD.... fear would cause him to make mistakes.. she'd cut him down with her force-imbued katana and notch another Jedi scum on her belt...
       
      She snarled at him, "Come and die, you fight the Sith Mistress!"

      Manufacturer: White Wolf Miniatures
      3 parts: Head, body, Sword.
      Scale: 70mm high
      Sculptor: Juan Puerta
      Casting: Sago
       
      This was a labor of love and fun for me, I decided as soon as I saw this beautiful bust that I was going to paint her up as 'evil' and the paint scheme that called to me was to paint her up to look like Darth Maul, I added the horns with copper wire and then sculpted them on with ProCreate. 
       
      Towards the end of the project, I was trying to decide how to display her and it came to me that I wanted to make her part of a story, give her a bit more of the Star Wars tie-in with a completely scratch-built Tie Fighter. The title placards on the sides were designed by my good friend @Thrym and I printed them off on cardstock and glued them onto the plasticard sides of the tie fighter.
       
      The scabbard is my attempt at a sort of force rune, it is Kanji which translates into "Sith Mistress."
       
      WIP can be found here: 
       
      Without further ado, I present (Darth) Sana from White Wolf Miniatures!

       
      Thanks for looking (and following along), C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
