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!

I'm going to be moving this month, but I'll give it a go anyway!

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?

This fellow was on my shelf of shame (actually, cigar box of shame, but that works)

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

      Hey there! 
      I decided to hop back on the RPChallenge wagon! 
      These guys have been languishing on my desk, just in need of some touch-ups and basing. So I knocked those out, and I'm calling them done. They'll be fun to use as a marker or something. 
      I did a WIP on my blog, feel free to go check it out! I update there much more frequently than I post here. 
      Hope y'all enjoy them! C&c is always welcome!

      To continue the thought I moved on to another that has been haunting me from my shelf of shame; the platinum dragon from the Grenadier dragon lords series
      I have to apologize for the phone pics but I had to rush and my wife's business has sort of taken over the spot I keep my light box

      Let's start the season by cleaning out my shelf of shame and accomplish something I've been meaning to do for the last decade or so....
       
      One of my first big miniature accomplishments I completed as a teenager was the complete painting of the first dragon lords circle by Grenadier the year it came out (in case any of you were wondering how old in actually was) 
       
      Well I found the set when I was going through my parents things and I wanted to try and do it better with my new skills and paints...  it took about 3 years  it accumulate a second set and then the project got delayed after I completed the black, green, red and white.  Mettalics can be difficult... but no more.  This year I will finish the council!
       
      So with some renewed interest I took my gold of the shelf and went after it over the holidays, doing the upper scales in Scale 75 metallics and the belly scales using the reaper NMM paint set.

      The Night Goblins Moonclan Grotz venture forth from their fungus-infested caves to do battle in the Nightvault. Being so small and weedy, they compensate by being many. There are nine of them, one more than the eight starter positions on the game board.
       
      So yeah, I went with the fungal theme... pic heavy, click if you dare!
