Reaper forum houses, propose your house for Reaper-warts college for artistic wizards!

Recommended Posts

The most esteemed Space Pope, Bryanzilla I proposed a game in his question thread. His most serene and stylishly be-hatted countenance has blessed the creation of four(ish) houses for the Reaper Forums to compete each season for the highly coveted Sophie Cup!

 

This thread is for people to propose house names and house colors for the forums. I will arrange a poll to select 3-5 final choices once we have a bunch of suggestions. Please post your suggestions below!

 

Things to consider:

 

What house name to do you suggest?

What are the house colors?

How should houses gain or lose points?

 

 

Quoth the Space Pope:

 

 

Actually, this could be a fun game, if anybody wants to be the Official Space Pope Sorting Hat, we can invent Houses for Forumites, (instead of stealing the HP houses) and somebody can tally their points. We can come up with some rules,that our Volunteer Sorting Hat can do (assuming she/he spends a ton time surfing the forum and doesn't mind), that determine how you earn points for your house.

 

If somebody likes this idea and wants to be The Sorting Hat, then I invite them to start a new thread, first to decide via referendum what our four houses ARE (and the 'rules' for earning or losing points, as well as House Colors- and if there's not a House whose colors are purple and teal, I declare the entire game invalid), and after that, a new thread to sign up (volunteer basis only) for a given house.  Also somebody could earn major house points by drawing sig-banners that used the colors and looked fun.

House Basererin.

 

This is the house for people who spend all there time building the most awesome base ever... But struggle to finish painting the rest of the model.

 

There symbol is a corthian plinth with grape vines winding its way up the column, we're little gnomes, owls, ravens, snakes and a random assortment of devils cavort within the grape leaves.

 

There color is brown and grey..

 

They gain points by posting basing tutorials, and posting actually painted minis.

Haven't figured out how they would lose points.

House Almost There (or some other fancy name you English-speakers can come up with, wordplays in a different language is tough!): For those who never truly finish a mini, this is the "99% done" house.

Frogwarts:  We get distracted a lot at shiny things, but the results are usually worth independent study credit.  And we replaced the school board with robots we made.  

 

Colors are Sample and Sample.

House Procrastinus - you lose points for only posting in off topic rampancy instead of crafts

I would lose all the points.

      So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts...
       

       
      and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler.

       

       
      So who else is up for the challenge?

      The Three Color Challenge is the brain child of forumite (and CMPA member) skippen. The idea is to select a miniature, then select, or have someone else select, three colors with which to paint the figure. Black and White are added to allow for highlighting and shading and color mixing is allowed and encouraged. The idea is that by limiting the palette and maybe using colors that may fall outside of one's comfort range, something could be learned.
       
      If you wish to participate in this challenge, please do! If you're struggling with colors and lack friends who are willing to give you opinions, look in the spoiler tag below. When it comes to picking the colors, the idea behind the colors isn't to pick strange combinations or to make this intentionally difficult based on the color choices. You'll find it hard enough to operate without proper flesh tones or metallic paints. I found it a good suggestion because I had to stretch myself and use some paints in combinations I wouldn't have otherwise. Overall, the point is to have fun!

      So, recently, I enjoyed visiting twitter (something I never really do and am honestly uncertain if "visiting" is even the right word to employ...showing my age, I know...) and looking at the pictures from the Cute Animal Tweet Off.  It made my day!  A bight a cheery bit of internet amid the dark an depressing wintery mix around it.  I feel inspired to start our own miniature version of this!
       
      Let's have a game!  Post pictures of cute miniatures we find all around the internet.  They can be your own work, so someone else's, just make sure to credit the source!  And have fun!!!  Bring joy to others through the power of CUTE!
       

       
      Here's one I've always loved:  Ali Bailey's version of the Easter Mousling.  Soooooo cute!!!!
