All the information you need should be here.

As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

January and February 2019

Your challenge is: 8!

Bonus Challenge: The First!
Finished - not perfect! Paint 4 minis from your 'shelf of shame."  A lot of our minis tend to end up there for a myraid of reasons - but a common one is 'can't get it to look just right" Don't get hung up on perfection - most models can be re-purchased again later

Bonus Challenge: The Second!
Bringing back a favorite for whatever absurd reason - Fingerpaint February! Paint a non-object/non-terrain miniature using only your own fingers. The exception is that priming and sealing may be done with a brush/airbrush/can/etc

Hard Mode Challenge!
Since most of us are in the winter season, and appropriately chilly, take a nod to the Greyhawk setting and the Land of Black Ice. A region of the world covered in black-blue ice. This inhospitable land is often haunted by arctic terrors, black-skinned trolls, and blue-furred bugbears among others. Your challenge is to paint an arctic terror (bonus points if it's a black-skinned troll or blue-furred bugbear) based on this 'sheet of black-blue ice.' Crackle medium may be very helpful for this. The more inhospitable, dark and dreary, the better!

As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

What the heck - if it keeps me motivated to paint this year.  

Last month I had a little contest with my son, and I managed 16 figures as a result.  Unfortunately, because I won, he doesn't want to do another one. 

 

1/9/19:

First accomplishments of the new year - six speed paints for my D&D game:

So let me see if I have this correct. To participate in this challenge I simply post all of my minis completed during the designated time frame with the appropriate title or tag (depending on manufacturer) in the Show Off section. Then, I come over here and provide a link to the completed figure in a convenient post (such as this one), and update that post as new miniatures are completed? In addition, I should point out if they meet any of the bonus challenges along the way. 

 

Did I get that right? Because if so I'll toss a few more of my completed miniatures  from the past week up on the Show Off thread tonight and take part in this fun sounding challenge.

As stated in information post - it's an informal challenge (no sponsors/rewards) more of for fun and to help people paint more, but yes that's basically it.

It can also be rather fun, especially the "wait, you want us to do what... with whuuuuuh?!?!" challenges that come up sometimes...  Had a blast doing the finger painting one....

Not quite from the land of black ice, but there's definitely a frigid feel to this one. Also, this may count as 2?

Oh, the possibilities!  Though I did already clear a lot of the backlog in December.

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:
