I'm back to being late again!

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:
March 26th is National Purple Day (raising awareness for epilepsy) - so paint a figure in monochrome purple. (Yes I know a slime would be an easy candidate)

Bonus Challenge the second:
April Fools' Brigade - Paint a mini in a completely nonsensical paint scheme or other silliness. ex: CAV with a giant bullseye on it, Adventurer with a shield that says "I'm with tasty ->" or something similar.

Bonus Challenge the Fiv Three, sir, three!
Monty Python and the Holy Grail released 33 years ago in April - paint up a figure to resemble a character from the movie

Spoiler

Not that reaper makes a 'not Tim the Enchanter' or anything...



Good luck

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

Placeholder post, as I don't have any completed, but I do intend on focusing on a few things...

  • Ebonwrath's d20 random rainbow dragon, with a river running through a forest base.  I've wanted to finish him, and I've wanted to do a nice custom base.  Might be more than I can handle, but only way to find out is to just go for it.
  • Hajad from the Layer up! LTPK....  Because I want to finish the LTPK's ::P:
  • My two Bones Minotaurs, and the two Bones Gnolls.

Challenges seem particularly interesting...  So tempted to paint someone up in like...  hot pink and neon orange plate armor, especially if it were a death knight....  Because that's totally intimidating (actually, it probably would be but still!).  Two of the three challenges seem tempting, third one I'll have to see, as I'd have to look further into Monty Python due to not remember very many of the characters...

 

 

April 21 EDIT: So far, haven't gotten a single one finished, but I've gotten a lot of work done here and there, namely with bases, and then getting miniatures set up for priming.  I've also gotten decently far on my Skaven Warlord, but "in progress" doesn't count ::P:

 

Jan/Feb progress was 6/8, and Mar/Apr progress right now is at 0/9, currently leaving me at 6/17 for overall progress so far.  Sure, it isn't as much as I'd like, but the key thing is actually sitting down and hobbying, which is what I'm doing, and I'm more than happy about that.

April:

Kallaguk

Gauntfield

So, thought things had settled down and I'd get to try some of the extra challenges (which looked fun). Instead (to keep things short) my father-in-law is now moved in with us until he gets a placement in a permanent care facility.  Needless to say, thing have been a bit distracting.

 

But I did manage to get enough done.

 

1-10: Reaper IMEF Marines

 

I'd say that hopefully things will settle down now, but as my wife goes on a trip next week, and the track opens up...next week, and the Montreal GP is in June,  oh, and I should really start looking for a job ,I don't foresee things settling down....

Got a lot of things started, but nothing finished this period.  Here's hoping to get that momentum going again, and not only doing all the stuff for next period, but also catching up so I'm even for the year! ^_^

      Information is growing on Cmon page and BGG.  This rings all the right bells and is likely to mug me quite severely.
       
      From the Facebook announcement:
       
      "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it!
      They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against."
       
      Or as Mr. Lang says in interviews, the game where you "shoot Cthulhu in the face."

      The Kickstarter is live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1138228733/moonstone-fantasy-skirmish-game/description
       
      This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.

      My favorite mini shown is the fairy archer which seems to not be in any pledge level or addon?

      Hi Everyone!
      I'm new here, though I have been a lurker for many years at this point.  I used to be quite into painting and sculpting miniatures but took a break when I went to college and I want to get back into it.  I've backed bones 4 so I figured I should start warming up for it!  
      So, after a four year break here is what I'm working on:

      Any feedback or critique would be wonderful!
       
      Cheers,
      PR
