So The Inner Geek brought up an interesting idea in my Workbench thread. I've been needing a kick in the pants to start painting my Kingdom Death stuff, and Trystan can use a kick in the butt to finish painting his :bday:


I hope we can get enough people to make this interesting. I think setting it up like the Beauty Pageant would be easiest unless there is enough interest to maybe solicit judges.


One idea would be to group paint the same model, again ala Inarah's Pageant. Given the subject matter, the most disturbing things are out for the Reaper forums. Also, no T though I'm not sure where the line is for A, given there is some cheek but most wear bottoms of some sort (if we go the pinup route). Which is another consideration, I think we should stay away from the first release limited edition stuff and stick to general release, or maybe currently available models (which means mostly pinups).


Looking over my drawer, and skipping models that fall into the aforementioned prohibited categories, here's my preliminary list of candidates (I have dupes of the 1st run saviors and TKs, if there's enough interest in those..):


Female Survivor (not 1st)

Forsaker (not 1st)

Flower Knight (not 1st)

Dung Beetle Knight (still available)

Pinup Great Game Hunter

Pinup Savior (yeah, Trys is almost done with this one)

Pinup Survivor

54mm Pinup Twilight Knight


Another route could be just painting whatever strikes your fancy or having people pick/vote for what they want to see us paint from our lists.


We also need to look at timelines, taking care to avoid other contests. I'm thinking of running it fairly soon given holiday time is good for some of us to paint. Balancing not being strict about deadlines (eh, no prizes but bragging...but if we get enough interest I'll approach Poots) vs enough deadline to make us push through it. I'd definitely like to have one of these in my case when I hit ReaperCon.


I'm really intimidated as I've never prepped or painted resin before, and I really hadn't intended cracking these open until I had been painting a few years. So I hope we can get a bunch of people to join in!

I love sentences taken out of their original context

Well since I couldn't finish in time, I'll just leave these here as a reminder of what could have been...   http://www.coolminiornot.com/320138   http://www.coolminiornot.com/280054   Since they

The hardest part of painting the same thing is it's nigh improbable that many of us have the same minis considering the scarcity of many.


My thoughts would be do this one as an open challenge and then, once the board game is out, choose something that a lot of people have.

I also lack KD stuff, due to price and extremely limited availability. (This is also another reason I love Reaper, I love knowing I'll be able to buy a mini when I actually have the one to buy it, and not when the company wants me to have money to buy it.) :blush:

I only have pinup versions

White Speaker Kisya

White Speaker

Great Game Hunter Julia

Preacher Wendy

Savior Morgan


I have no idea of the availability of any of these or if any of them were limited editions. I think there was a sale somewhere. Oh there maybe another one that was in a bigger box, maybe a Twilight Knight

      Separating a bee from its honey is always a risky prospect, but especially when they are giant, man-eating Titan Bees.
      However, when smeared with a concoction made with the pulped remains of it's larva, a person is temporarily rendered virtually invisible to the Bees. And so the Bug Thief started a thriving business stealing bee babies to make into potions, but how did she survive going into the hive in the first place? That's a mystery to be solved another day.
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, her bee striped fur thingy didn't come out like I hoped (and she's stuck with rather wonky eyes) but I think she ended up looking fairly decent overall.

      While the title may sound like a part of a weird children's book series, it's actually a trio of Kingdom Death Pin-ups!

      The Bug Thief, her right arm goes across her face so I've left it off for now.

      The Swamp Girl. I have to paint her base, paint her and then sandwich the clear bit in between without making a mess.

      The Dogpole Mother, the hard part will be painting the Dogpoles so that they actually look like something!
      Starting with the Bug Thief:-

      Painted her face and boobs (Rosy Flesh > Flesh Wash > Rosy Flesh > Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh), added a touch of Scarlett Red to the final highlight for her lips and painted her eyes (The left one is a bit buggy, but I'm hoping it'll look better once I paint her hair).

      Presenting the Ram Pin-up from Kingdom Death, I imagine this is what quest-giving NPCs look like in that world, sketchy, half-naked dudes who always have one more dubious item for you to fetch before they'll let you have the promised fancy sword.
      I'm reasonably happy with how he turned out. He's a little rough in places, where my brush control wasn't quite up to the task, but I don't think I did too bad.
