February Resolutionary Painting Challenge


Recommended Posts

Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here:



a reminder when submitting to please adhere to the forum show off guidelines. This is a much bigger challenge than I expected and it makes life easier for the mods


Also, please only create a single index post for your links. This means to modify your existing post when you get a new figure finished instead of posting a new one.

this month's challenge is...4!
We have a bonus challenge.

To be submitted on midnight reaper standard time on February 14th.
Paint (modification encouraged) a figure representative of the holiday this month.
Is it a little fat guy with a bow? A fair maiden with wings? A great big brute with pink tattoos? Or do you feel more like a monk caught in the rain?
You tell us!
...I'm not sure if it's allowed to offer small prizes or not for that which gets the most likes, so anything in this regard is pending.

Have at it!

4 for the exchanges, something new to try
12 for the monsters, who in the dungeons moan
7 for the competition, to please the judges eye
19 for the table top, which will set the tone
9 for the players, doomed to see their characters die
One for the master painter on his ergonomic throne
In the well lit studio where no shadows lie
one tag to hue them all, one tag to bind them
one tag to bring them all and in the forum find them.
In the well lit studio where no shadows lie

My goal for the month of February is to finish 4 right off in that first week. That will get it out of the way so that I may just go to GhenghisCon the next weekend and not have anything to paint. Then everything after that is gravy. Oh and I plan to try to keep a running total this time.


And here we are:



Everything after these is gravy!

This month I have decided to try to not only actually get something painted, but also to try to do several different kinds of miniatures, and chip away at the Mountains of Miniatures Madness by painting at least one of each from the following categories:

Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on  the shelf of shame,

So, at least 14 miniatures, several of which will be large and/or multiple pieces. An average of 3,5 minis a week, or one every two days. Should be doable. Unless I go off on a tangent again.

6: Mantic 3x Half-Zombies: https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/150215-mantic-half-zombies.jpg




This months finished minis count thus far: 18 and 3 halfs, 3 bits of scenery, and 1 base of 3 15mm minis.


Now to ponder what kind of resolution to do for March. Do X amount of miniatures? Complete such and such squads? Do specific types of minis such as in February? Maybe manufacturers I have not done before?

…right now, I tend towards completing some squads. Get something ready for the table, just in case I actually would get to play some games. Which totally might happen. Yeah.
