April Resolution Painting Challenge Springs forth


Recommended Posts

Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here:  The first post as linked will contain the updated totals soon and the plan is to start getting the graphics sent to all who have completed the months so far.



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: 5.

Yes I'm aware with reapercon there's less time to paint, but that's part of the challenge! Spring-like is encouraged but by no means part of the challenge.  On a side note, if you decide to paint up the TMNT and April, that would be epic, but I'm not sure there's ninja turtles minis out there...
We have 1 bonus challenge for this month.

In honor of a rather obscure holiday...Barber Shop Quartet day, You have the optional challenge of painting a figure to resemble such! Bowtie, Pinstripe vest, the hat, optional cane...let's see what you can do.



The deadline Is planned for May 5th Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time)...because I'll be in Texas and won't be closing the thread yet.

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

Theme Idea for others with higher skill levels:



A Barber pole is a white pole with Spiraling ribbons.....like a Spring....




I am surprised the theme is not painting a fool, a jester, a guy wearing a Fool'scap.


Since I failed to paint anything in March, I am either out or I need to do 9 for this month to catch up. Been reading the chatter thread to look for a ruling on whether that is legit. Anybody got opinions or remember what was decided?

Bam!!  Done! (Checks calendar) Early even!


I was actually done on the 14th, as this is my Spring Exchange.  Just had to wait for it to get to its new home before posting the showoff.


1&2: 59038: Deadlands Noir: Houngan and 59037: Deadlands Noir: Femme Fatale

3-6: Pulp Figures  PGJ 20 Jinx Johnson's Harlem Jazz Quartet 

They can all be seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61240-spring-2015-exchange-rhapsody-in-blue/?p=1119575


While they aren't quite Barbershop, they are pretty close  ::D:

So for April:

  1.  My Spring Miniature Exchange
  2.  A Big Stomping Robot for Mars Attacks
  3.  A sci-fi figure to enter at ReaperCon
  4.  Another SHIELD agent/MIB two really
  5.  The last two heroes from Mars Attacks

May 4th is Star Wars Day. So I challenge painters to bust out their very best Jedi painting skills for that.

Placeholder! I finished 3 today, but I'm going to wait to post them I think.. They're all part of one of my Reapercon dioramas! 





That makes 6. Be glad we got to 6 with reapercon looming over me!
