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.

      Hello friends!!
      I'm wanting to do a little market research and I'm hoping I can get your help. 
      For Bones V I sculpted a bunch of kids heroes and their pet companions. These were some of my favorite figures to work on and I'd like to do more. To be very very clear I have NO indication that Reaper will be producing any more of those types of figures and I'm in no way promising to create anything we discuss here. I have no shortage of ideas when it comes to new kid heroes but I'm wanting to see what types of figures people would want if hypothetically I decided to create more. 
      I really like the idea of doing brother/sister sets, offering male and female options for particular races or themes. Simply from a design perspective it allows me to explore an idea more fully. Again, this is purely for my personal side projects and fun, not related to any official releases. That said, it's nice to know what the thoughts were about the ones I've already made and what holes people may want filled within that genre. 
      My questions are:
      •What did you like/love/hate/ignore about the kid heroes from Bones V?
      •What themes or types of kid heroes would you be interested in? 
      •What purpose would they serve for you? Just fun to paint? Have kids who want to play but struggle to find a figure that represents them? Using them as stand ins for hobbits/halflings/gnomes or other vertically challenged races? 
      •What themes would you like to see explore in this context? Steampunk, modern, arthurian, more "random fun" types, traditional villager or starting hero types? Dragonkin, Genasi or other less popular fantasy races?

      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      So how do I paint something with a marble effect? I have a sepulcher or sarcophagus, primed light grey, and I want to paint it like it was made from marble. Any ideas or tricks? Colors? Anything? Bueller?
      If it helps, its the one from the Horror subset of the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
    • By Dan d'Lyon
      Just wanted to throw this one out there.  Witchborn is a rather cool tabletop minis game, but there is also a companion app for each scenario with a lot of variety that allows you to play that scenario many times, but each one can be a very different experience.  Your warband will also evolve over time.  I discovered the game at GenCon in 2017 and have really enjoyed it every time I've played.  Plus, Cory is really cool and responsive.  I haven't checked this out yet, but you can also play the game on Roll20.
      Did I mention that they use Reaper Bones minis?

      For when your heroes are slightly less than heroic?
      Welcome to the 2nd release of Fatal Fantasy! 
      Edit (29/09/2020) NEW Painted pictures in Gallery and Stretch Goal Update. Edit (12/09/2020) NEW Stretch Goal section added! Edit (21/09/2020) NEW Add-ons added!  
      This project brings you 23 new fantasy casualties for use in your tabletop wargames or board games. 
      You'll find close-ups and measurements in 'The Miniatures' section, please also take a look at the contents of the 'Pledges' section and the details in the 'Shipping' section. Excellent painted examples by the talented Paul Allen from 'Toomuchdevlan' and Russ Painting are dotted between the sections with more in the 'Gallery'.
      The original sculpts and metal production moulds have been finished and tested in advance so metal miniatures will be ready to ship as soon as the funding period is ended in mid-October.
      I have included a resin option for the casualty bases too - this is to give backers outside of the UK, a cheaper shipping option. However, the resin casualty casts won't be ready until mid-November. (International backers can also choose metal but the shipping costs will be very high due to the weight of the miniatures). I've deliberately kept the resin availabilty low - this is to make sure there are no delays due to casting lead time. If the casting gets ahead of schedule, I will add further resin availabilty.
      In the add-ons section, you'll find the previous Fatal Fantasy casualties, Fantasy Fighters and also some NEW Ye Alchemist sculpts. These miniatures are all METAL and have had the moulds tested.
      This is my 5th project so I am experienced in reward completion and delivery. 
      Slain Mimic sculpted by Aaron Howdle The 23 core miniatures were originally designed and sculpted by Christian Af Bjärgö and Aaron Howdle. 
      Measurements are in green, alongside the pictures below.
      Beholder - sculpted by Aaron Howdle. (Resin Only) Slain Mimic - sculpted by Aaron Howdle. (Resin Only) To pledge simply choose which reward you would like. If you would like any 'add ons', then add the extra value of the 'add ons' to the total.
