Paint and Take show off

Recommended Posts

My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits.  It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc.  We get really good turnout.  The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations.  All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors.  It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting.  A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away.  I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. 

 

So here is this year's class:

 

(BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones3 core that you do not want, find me at Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)

I apologize to anyone having trouble loading this, it seems the forum software wants to make my replies into one giant post....

Lots of nice paintjobs there. 

Looks like you may have managed to infect a few people with our special brand of insanity. ;-)

 

I see that one of the minis is Ali Sparrow, Female Cat Pirate by Dark Sword. 

Not exactly what I expect to see at a Paint & Take, so you've got some really nice patrons. 

 

As for the forum playing with your posts, that happens if you post them too quickly.

It's a change that was added in the upgrade of the forum. Posts posted within 15 minutes (or something like that)  of each other will automatically be merged if there's no interveening posts.

It's 3 minutes, actually, and only if no one else has posted in between.

 

Huzzah!

Thanks for the comments. That Ali Sparrow came from someone at Reapercon.  Figures in the Swag Bag aren't always everyone's cup of tea and I am happy to take them and redistribute them.

Yeah, I've heard that there are people out there who doesn't like the DS anthros. Never actually met anyone like that, but...

(I keep 'Brave sir Robin, Scaredy cat' at the office... The number of people, even older men, who giggle at it... yeah... )

 

Someone definitely lucked out when they got to pick Ali Sparrow.

 

I hope you've send the wonderful people at DS a heads up or pictures.

      So my nieces are in town visiting from the east coast. The little one (6) loves painting anything, she was painting clothes pins while I was there the other day. The older one (10) loves art in general. So I thought it'd be a great thing to introduce them to minis painting. So with a little guidance they painted their first minis yesterday.
       
      6 year old painted these:
       
       
      The 10 year old did these:
       
       
      I was really impressed by both of the girls. I left a bunch of craft paint, brushes, and some minis there so maybe they'll have done more last night. I'll find out today or later next week. It was great fun.

      Once a year my husband and I run a Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits.  It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc.  We get a great turnout.  The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations.  All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors.  It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting.  A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away.  I couldn't do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. 
       
      Anyway, here are a few of the less blurry photos from yesterday. I've tried to optimize them for loading, so I hope the page isn't too slow.

      The prospect of painting a mother and two kids wasn't all that appealing to me. So I got creative and actually had a lot of fun with this one.

      Mother and children celebrate 17th of May (Norwegian Constitution Day).  The mother is dressed in Sunnmors-bunad (my mom is from there), while the older boy is dressed in a Samekofte (representing my grandmother on my father side of the family).  Only thing missing is 1 or more Norwegian flags, but mom seems to have her hands full.  I went with brown hair on mom since brown hair is the most common haircolor in Norway, despite the blond stereotype...
       
      The faces and especially eyes are pretty terrible, but the details were really soft and my attempt at greenstuff surgery were pretty bad.  At least the mini is done in time for the contest, yay.

      Anyone else remember the old D&D cartoon from 1983? Just read that it will be released om DVD this December. Dang, that brings back some old memories.
