You May be almost Halfway through the Resolutionary Painting Challenge!

Recommended Posts

Or May bee not depending on how you did prior months.

Grand totals are a hair out of date, but I'll get around to that soon
Also: while the enthusiasm is appreciated, please do not post the monthly threads ahead of these. If I cannot post the monthly thread for some reason, then it will be posted by Flamehawke per the established format with the appropriate information.


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: 4.

We have 2 bonus challenges for this month, with even more coming up in following months.

The most obvious: May the 4th be with you! Paint some figure and/or modify it to be Star Wars.
May 22nd is known as "National Buy a Musical Instrument Day" so bust out a bard! Guitar, harmonica, bagpipes, whichever!



The deadline Is planned for June1 Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time).

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

I already have 3 partially done minis to finish (and a bonus sheep staring at me) that I plan to have done by the end of the month. And I totally speed painted some smaller things because I was lazy. >_>


1) "Angel" from the 02870: Familiar Pack VI of Halloween Familiars. I tossed up the whole set as she was the hold out.

May goals


1-4. Dark Sword Kitties http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61640-dark-sword-kitties-dsm7616/


5. Dark Sword Cathedral in the Forest mini link for proof warning a bit of nudity http://wp.me/a26YPy-5N (base work only at 75% but the mini is complete.)


Update: I may be stuck at five I have alot to do for my base on #5, although I began prep on Zerkova looking for a head swap for one of her though so I doubt I'll get much finished this month with them.


Total for May five minis

2. Bones 2 Hordling: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61761-maledrakhs-bones-2-a-hordling-named-mike-wazowski/

Oh, By the way....LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!


...did this many people really fall off the wagon or just no placeholders?


This month kinda sucks for me. I came back from ReaperCon at the start then I had end of the semester classwork to turn in. Now I am off but next weekend I have a camping trip planned. So I guess I better get back to my Memorial Day binge painting challenge if I want to keep up.

 1)  Something from Memorial Day painting

 2)  Something else from Memorial Day painting

 3)  Yet another

 4)  Lets hope I get to here

      Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites.
      We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges.
      Reaper only? - No.
      If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes.
      Are speed paints acceptable - Yes.
      Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes.
      Based or unbased? - Yes.
      Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes.
      NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy
      (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases)
      Medium and smaller = 1 ea
      Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea
      Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea
      Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea
      Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea
      Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up
      Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota
      Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures.
      If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures)
      If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually.
      Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more.
      You challenge begins...now!
      And Our Mantra:
      If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge
      The objective:
      To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota
      (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)
      What qualifies:
      Darn near anything!
      Any material!
      Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten!
      Exchange minis!
      Speed paints!
      Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well)
      Any Size!
      Etc! (I think that covers everything)
      Year long challenge
      Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods
      Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84372-january-february-rpchallenge/
      March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85335-march-april-rpchallenge/
      May/June: 8 https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86376-may-~-june-rpchallenge/
      July/August: 9: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87162-julyaugust-rpchallenge/
      Sept/Oct: 9:
      Nov/Dec: 9:
      Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      July and August 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Independence Day! Both Canada and the US celebrate their independence days in July. Keeping it clean - paint a mini that resembles the most absurd stereotype of the country, whether it's a lumberjack riding a moose with a jug of maple syrup, or a fat dude in a scooter with the american flag and a big mac.  Or something from the film Independence Day, that works too.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      August 22nd is National Spumoni day. 3-layered Gelato dish. Paint any mini in a themed pallet around your choice image of said dish.

      Hard Mode Challenge! Eruption
      Also in August is the fabled eruption of Pompeii. A full-size diorama is a but much to ask - but instead theme a mini around trying to escape the eruption (lava flows, flying chunks of rock, etc) particularly utilizing the OSL and an ashen look.
      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
    • By Maledrakh
      Another one of the half-painted minis on my painting station shelf, now done:

      Looks like she found a shining stone. Not sure if the OSL worked all that well on this mini. So a gnome is basically a hobbit with boots?
