Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2018 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm in!

 

Also, I hate the word bimonthly. I never know if it's every two months or twice a month. >< silly English language.

 

I totally spaced out on the RPChallenge last year I think =/

Sooo if I post this guy on the Jan/Feb thread he would count as 1?  But if I added basing enhancements he would be 2?

Challenge Accepted!

 

I got burned out and didn’t paint anything at all for most of last year. But I’m refreshed now and ready to go.

I'm ordering a bunch of supplies and minis tomorrow, might as well join in, doubly so given my GW backlog from days gone by.  And hey, fun and friendly challenges are always a good motivator ^_^

 

I have a question regarding the fingerpainting challenge...  Is one able to use things like paper towel / shop towels / rags creatively, assuming they're wrapped around your finger(s) at the time?  By such I'm not referring to using them as a replacement brush, more as something for removal/smearing of paint.  As an example, think of the "old" ragging technique for getting "texture" when painting a wall in one's room.

vignette/dioramas are factored differently - on this particular one that would be more under 'single mini basing'

(I just love that picture...) but really, fingerpainting is using only your fingers to apply paint. There's some past examples that people did some REALLY nice stuff that way, actually considering the limitations. It's meant to be a fun challenge, hypothetically if you wanted to file your fingernail down to a paint for detail work you can, but the spirit of the challenge is strictly your digits.

I am in again, but as usual I probably won't do any challenges.

I'm in. Last year I didn't get a lot done, but whenever I remembered about the challenge it always made me do at least something.

 

The weather isn't nice enough to prime the ones I really want to paint right now, but I have quite a few random minis I am going to try and get done this month.

I have a question on size. I just finished the Stoneskull Dire Bear, and I'm working now on 77029 Silverhorn Unicorn, and noticed that both are larger than my character minis, but smaller than a giant. Would they qualify as medium or large?

 

Pic for size reference:

FWIW, when I base & catalog my mini's, I generally use the Pathfinder Bestiary which has the Giant, Dire Bear, & Unicorn as large creatures, so that's how I would initially submit them.

 

Ultimately its up to the discretion of of the moderator of this challenge.

But... I don't know if I want to sacrifice a figure to the fingers! Maybe a skeleton? For shizngiggles? 

Frosty... I got some ideas on that...

I'm tempted to "sacrifice" Rictus to such an endeavour...  I'll have four of him soon enough anyways, assuming hubby doesn't want one.....  Although I will admit, that's kind of why I ordered 77254 Beastman Champion, as well as 77473 Kogo, Male Kitsune...  Well, that and was curious about the sculpts and how they are in Bones, but still.  Well, Kogo is geniunely interesting to me, but the Beastman...  Hard to say.  Seemed like just outside the bounds of what I'd normally get, and seemed like it could potentially be friendly to fingerpainting ^_^

      They say every army needs it's centerpiece, it's keystone...  It's.... Leader.  Many have glorious names, that warriors will flock to battle under, to defend some sort of principle, moral code, or... Other stuff.
       
      Not this one.  Nope, not him, a warlord who doesn't even bother with a name.  Some say his name was lost to the ages, others say that anyone who dares utter his name winds up meeting an untimely fate.  All that is known, is that the murderous mutant rats under his command are some of the most bloodthirsty out there, and they all speak with a hushed reverence for some critter that's simply known as "Steve", most without realizing Steve is the impaled skull on the warlord's shoulder...
       
      Two things are well known though...  He, and his forces are typically only known by their actions, namely that any town or outpost that they attack, there are no survivors left behind, and an absolutely bloody amount of carnage is left in his wake..
       

      ^Originally tried to just use the box art behind him, and keep things relatively tidy, but I was having trouble with my mobile phone's camera hunting for focus, and so after a few attempts I wound up switching to a plain white sheet of paper.  Putting these two up though because a)I like them, and b)the colours turned out fairly close to how the mini is in the real world, at least to my eyes.
       



       

       
       
      This is the first character mini for my "Unrelenting Tide" Skaven army...  Comprised of a combination of the 25th Anniversary Warhammer Fantasy Battles Skaven boxed army set and the Island of Blood miniatures, this is the first miniature I've tried to go further than just tabletop with, and saw what I'll describe as mixed results.  While I did want to try certain techniques such as OSL, I decided as I was going on to simply work on basics such as lining.  Now yes, I could have gone a few more layers on the flames, and especially his lower half, I wound up calling him "done" due to a few things, but mostly because I'd repainted certain parts three or four times and it was getting to the point where I just wanted him finished.  Oddly enough, thanks to some things on him and other minis I'm still working on, I was able to come up with a colour scheme that seemed to just... "click" and work for him.

      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)

      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/78657-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2018-chatterquestions/
      All the information you need should be here.

      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

      Good luck

      The game is made up and the points don't matter

      This a Bones elf ranger that I started painting a while back and decided to finish just to be done with him. Done to a tabletop standard. Thanks for looking.
