  1. 600 grit sandpaper? ebony boards?
  2. I do both. Prep immediately before painting and have things sit primed for 20 ...urm, weeks ...we’ll go with weeks before hand. It is looking like not... ...but the weekend is not over.
  3. Sorta reminds me of the old logo and slogan of the Leo Burnett, Co., a storied Ad Agency from Chicago. (Tony the Tiger and The Jolly Green Giant are their creations.) http://larrymarder.blogspot.com/2008/05/leo-burnett-logo-apples.html?m=1 Slogan began “When you reach for the Stars...”
  4. @Pineapple @Kangaroorex A May/June edition is posted. Since there’s but six weeks left I dropped the base number to 8. (Although, the original plan was for 9 ...maybe Sept can be 9).
  5. 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/84371-2019-rpchallenge-questionsannouncements/ All the information you need should be here. As usual, the new format includes "hard mode" challenge options!  May and June 2019 Challenge Your challenge is: 8! Bonus Challenge: The 1st! Paint a mini themed around ...The Frozen North! (Yup, Winter in a Summer month. In honor of: James Clark Ross, the first European to reach the North Magnetic Pole, June 1st 1831.) Polar Bears, Frostgravers, Seals, Yetis, US Navy SEALS in winter kit, Snow Apes, Winter Foxes, Dire Penguins, Snow Leopards, Tiger Tanks in winter Camo, White Tigers, Frost Giants, Winter Terrain ...are all good. Bonus Challenge: The 2nd! Join the Painting Binge next weekend. Hard Mode: knock out the basic 8 during the Binge. Details: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86220-memorial-day-paint-binge-challenge-2019/ Bonus Challenge: The 3rd! The third time pays for all. If there was a Bonus Theme from earlier this year that you wanted to do but missed; go back, find it, and give it a go! Post the theme Rules with the link please. Bonus Challenge: The 4th! The Fourth was with us earlier in May. Paint up some sort of mini as a Stars Wars character, background extra, droid, or spacecraft. Harder mode: Do some conversion work on the model first. (Add a light saber, swap a sword to a blaster, cobble together a ship from random objects Froggcident-style...) As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
  6. I sent a PM, started composing something, and I will post it in a few hours if I don’t hear otherwise from Zeke. @NomadZeke sound like a plan?
  7. I could post one for him...I’ve got some ideas and can follow the format. Maybe it just wouldn’t be the same?
  8. ...well played, Doug, well played.
  9. @malefactus It took me long enough to find the link that I was Ninja’d by @Chaoswolf but yes, that is the link. It is just a for funs and giggles thing to do on an annually recurring long weekend. @Inarah has promoted it the last (3?) years running.
  10. Not to worry... ...the Forum Paint Binge is next weekend. (Aligned with the United States of USicans version of Memorial Day, obviously Canada-Netherlands-UK and other countries observe different days. But it is a 3 or 4 day weekend in the same country as RHQ.) I want to know more about the cloak business.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Maybe what you need is a rival group of adventurers or two. These are active agents in your world setting who act off-camera. Your PCs hear of their deeds via Bards and Rumour. Use their activity to help help guide things, keep the world going, kick the can down the road... ...it will make it seem less like the PCs are the only real folk in the world.
  12. Weekend Questions for: May 18 to 19 ~ Do you prep Miniatures in well in advance of painting them? (Scrape mold lines, prime, shade...etc.) If Yes, are you going to prep some this weekend for the Memorial Day Weekend Painting Binge (which is next weekend)?

    The Case of the Ballroom Debacle (that you have planned) sounds like good fun. To figure out (plan) what kind of campaign to run ongoing poll them with story hooks; the type they go for is the sort of campaign they want. Perhaps present in groups of three: Dire/Serious, Lightheart/BuffyTVS, Muddled/Pure Mercenary. How do you know this?? ...wait, ...not sure I want to know the answer.
  14. I did tune in. For the whole two hours. The last “episode” was formatted like two 30 minute episodes back-to-back, then there was an episode of Sheldon as a kid, then there was a 30 minute Special where Cuoco and Galecki were themselves instead of their characters. I kinda wish they’d done one more season, but I thought they did a good job going out on or near the top. (n.b: Weekend Question inbound, just waiting long enough to avoid a merged post. Or, sooner if someone posts something.)

    Neither. [?] Why are those the only 2 options? There oughtsta be at least 3 other options. Not sure why it is a linear scale between these two options. Everybody that has commented seems to take this as a given though. Is it impossible to have a heavy-hearted, serious game (converse of light-hearted) in a world which is stable and static (not subject to doom if some mega-villain prevails)? A light-hearted game in a world where the local version of Ragnarok will happen for certain, and everyone knows this, just a matter of which Big Bad gets to the BRButton. Or a game where the world is not doomed but instead the forces of St. Goodytwoshoes will inevitably prevail. It might be the PCs who bring this about, or they might end up on the ash-heap of history, while others claim the glory-wealth-and-Castles.
