Godlike (8/8)



  1. Alright, so...Obviously I missed the march/april thread. Got a little distracted by some real life stuff on the tail end of Feb, which happens. AND then After the last D&D session week 1 of march my motivation for pretty much everything got shot outta the sky. Sorry for gettin' so off the tracks again...the brain goblins are in full force and making any/everything minis related pretty tough lately. I'll try to get us back on track with may/June the next couple days here.
  2. Informational post has rough sizes-equivilancies, if you have a specific figure in mind for clarification, please post in that thread. No brushes, air or otherwise, the entire figure must be fingerpainted Primer? That's why there's brush-on, in this case, fingerpaint on. You can take advantage of thinned paint to flow as you want it, but application of the paint to the figure must be done using your fingers. Goggles will count as glasses for purposes of this challenge. And yeah, that or any other type of similar patternish. A google search of "aloha style shirts" will give you a plethora of images.
  3. Just buzzing in to drop a familiar looking link for those that enjoy a little chaos! https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89750-2020-rpchallenge-informationquestions/
  4. LE GASP! I'm on time! 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. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89750-2020-rpchallenge-informationquestions/ 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: 8! Bonus Challenge: The First! Hindsight! - OK let's be obvious, you SAW this coming. *rimshot* paint a miniature with glasses! Bonus Challenge: The Second! Our annual favorite challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! Pick a miniature that is NOT terrain. This is pretty self explanatory. Hard Mode Challenge! February holds "National Margarita Day" and often hand-in-hand with the tropical drink, is gaudy 'Aloha' clothing! Paint a mini if your choice where the majority of the exposed surface must be free-handed in the mannerism of such! Yes that's a lot of freehand. (I honestly just wanna see someone paint a slime covered in freehanded palm trees >.>) Good luck The game is made up and the points don't matter
  5. Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites. We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines. As an works well, this challengehas been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges. FAQ Reaper only? - No. If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes. Are speed paints acceptable - Yes. Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes. Based or unbased? - Yes. Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes. NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases) Medium and smaller = 1 ea Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures. If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II/III figures) If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually. Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more. You challenge begins...now! And Our Mantra: Participants: If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge The objective: To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list) I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this - I am making a more concentrated effort in 'bookkeeping' this year. If someone would be willing to assist in such, it would be much appreciated. What qualifies: Darn near anything! Reaper/non-reaper! Any material! Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten! Exchange minis! Speed paints! Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well) Any Size! Based/unbased! Etc! (I think that covers everything) Year long challenge Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase (if needed) that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods Jan/Feb: 8: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89751-janfeb-rpchallenge/ March/April: 9: May/June: 8 July/August: 9: Sept/Oct: 9: Nov/Dec: 9:
  6. AND that's a wrap. Announcements and such will be up soon(TM) for 2020 - if a mod would be so kind as to unpin this one and pin the 2020 it would be most helpful
  7. I had to bow out for a couple years, maybe Ill be back this round.
  8. Nope. Got called once for jury duty, answered the questions in my own special way for the interview, they never called me back, or gave summons again.
  9. -initial comment redacted- I actually have several in queue, but doubting my skill too much to start.
  10. Kobold Press? OK cool /backs the special edition cover without reading the KS cause it'll be awesome no matter what
  11. VR/AR... I mean..technically Pokemon Go is AR...so yes? (i rarely use it, mostly the AR is good for being able to walk right up to bosses and smash them in the face with excellent throws) And beatsaber is VR..so.. Last time I tried something new the casualties list was enormous
  12. 16th: Re-cleaning hobby room with mass reorganization. There appears to have been a struggle. 17th: Only about 5-6inches long. Can't grow it too long even for my winter coat, cause professional environment, or something.
  13. Coffee! Of course, it's a set time to brew for when I wake up, and if I made it stronger it'd be walking around the kitchen. Otherwise: Bacon. I'm a sucker for a good chicken fried steak with grits and sausage gravy though.
  14. I saw one similar on foot the other day, really small print said "Nosy little -redacted- aren't you?" No it didn't actually say redacted, but y'know. rules...
