Been a productive month for me. Animals are springing to life everywhere.
Out the “white minis” pile I pulled the Bones Chimera. It’s a quick tabletop level effort, but after staring at it for two years, I just wanted it painted. Since I wasn’t really invested in the outcome, I thought I’d do something a little different, so I went with a purple dragon.
Pretty certain at this point I fell off the wagon got ran over by it, then chased it down and set it on fire (given the drought of these - explanation is in the chatter thread)

Due to the delay, there is going to be a normal and hard challenge for each month.
Your challenge is: 13!
October Bonus: This is Halloween! - Paint a mini using only colors that have black, orange, and purple in the name. You may also use "Fresh Blood" and "Spectral White" as they are part of the monthly promotion.
Hard mode: Jack-o-lantern's light - Paint a mini where the only source of light would be coming from inside a jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin may be part of the mini/base or sculpted
November Bonus: Festive feast - Since both US And Canada have their Thanksgiving in this time bracket - paint up a mini (figure or terrain) to have some food being presented
Hard mode: Liquid Cheer - This can be done with the above - paint a mini where it's holding a drinking vessel - but paint it as though the mug were glass and you could see the drink inside from the sides (in theme - ale or wine is the best use)
December Bonus: Winter Solstice - To celebrate the shortest day of the year - paint a halfling or dwarf decked in wintry colors (think blues/grays/whites, maybe brown and a little bit of evergreen)
Hard Mode: Gift wrapped - paint a mini with any inorganic parts (metal, cloth, etc) being done to resemble giftwrap - little candy canes, trees, text, stripes, etc - bows optional
The game is made up and the points don't matter
Way back in May, I finished a Lava/Magma elemental that I teased as being a practice piece for something larger. It’s been longer than planned, but I’ve completed him, and I’m 99% happy with the results.
I introduce the fearsome Marty the Lava Dragon.
And one last one with his little buddy for comparison. There are definite differences in how the lava effect played out on the sculpts. I like them both for what they are.
P3 Heartfire, Magma Red, Walnut Brown, and P3 Coal Black (barely there in the very blackest areas).
Technically, I also used Pure White as a base coat and later a couple times when I messed it up badly enough that I had to start over.
