Resolutionary Painting Challenge! Does June Bug anyone else?

Recommended Posts

Bet you're thinking of the little invasive insect? I delight to inform you, you are wrong.
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 and grand total now and the plan is to start getting the graphics sent to all who have completed the months so far soon



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.

Bonus Challenge is:

Way back when, Cartoon Network would hold a 48 hour marathon of Bugs Bunny Cartoons, called June Bugs. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is paint at least 1 figure as a Looney Tunes/Merry Melodies character.



The deadline Is planned for July 1 Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time).
And in the wise words of Yosemite Sam:
Clear out, ya lily-livers!

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 may just do another 4-5 Orcs.



I know which Looney Tunes characters I'd like to do but suitable figures, hmmmm.


Edit: forgot I had this post. Showoff thread I did not do any Orcs after all. Got nowhere on that theme. Link to redundant post.

This month I am once again at the Mountains of Minis, delving into them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course.
At any rate, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. 
Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy bones, I have painted some metal minis for a change.
Hereby I present a new series entitled At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth
Which showcases minis with slightly overstated eating orifices (well, what did you think it would be about?)


At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth vol 1: Chainmail Abyssal Maw


At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth vol 2: Hell Dorado Damned One of Gluttony




Completing squads: Mars Attacks! Martian Grunts and Marines


Cowboys and Spacemen: More Zombies


EVEN MOAR ZOMBIES!!!:  Bones 2 Zombies



Total minis completed so far this month: 23

Oh jeez, I have failed horribly at this challenge. Lets see if I can get back in the swing of things for June.


1. Platypod- done

2. Shoamita

3. Frumitty- done

4. The monster for them to fight- undecided

5. Echidnox


So failed again, unless getting partially done with a big ol bust, prepping 2 huge minis and starting a base count. :-) I've been busy, just not completey

I'm assuming I only need one thread for the bugbear batch, and that Mr Pointy doesn't need his own thread.

June Minis


1-5. DDSII Terrain Pieces Only http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62309-77381-ddsii-terrain-pieces-only/

6. Dark Sword sleeping fox http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=84688 (link for proof)



Awesome technically I met the goal with some terrain pieces, let's see if I manage to finish anything else. I have two minis started but they are going to take a long time for me so who knows June may see one or two more.


Good luck everyone can't wait to see what everyone paints up.

      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.

      Today I wanted to show off some cheap 54mm Vikings that I painted up as Frost Giants.

      I made these guys close to a year ago, and they were among some of the first larger sized minis I had worked on, so they're a little rough, and that's before looking at the quality of model, but if someone else is in need of a lot of giants like I was, then this might be useful to them!

      So these guys are from Tehnolog, a Russian miniatures company that I know very little about.  The minis are made out of a soft plastic like novelty toys you can buy with tickets at an arcade.  They also have abysmal detail.

      They're meant for 54mm wargaming, and I believe there's an intended game system that accompanies the line, but my goal was to get some cheap giants for D&D.

      They fit nicely on a 2in base, and could probably fit in with the smaller Reaper Bones giants, but they're definitely a little undersized.  I remedied this by giving them each a boosted base, with the leader getting two layers.  At a glance, they tower over a standard medium sized mini.
      The details were rough and there were some ugly mold lines here and there.  But they're serviceable.  They might work better as a half-giant if you want to use 5e's Huge Frost Giants.
      More pictures of each giant below the Spoiler:
      Tehnolog also has a few other lines of fantasy-esque minis if you're a fan of cheap minis.  I am still considering getting one of their other lines to convert into cheap-o Fire Giants.

      What's your favorite obscure miniature substitute?

      Hi all.  Still relatively new to the forums but I'm going to try to show off my work more often.

      I was working on an arctic campaign before the pandemic hit and had already started work on a lot of suitable minis.  Not sure when or if that game will ever resume, but in the meantime I've got plenty of minis to paint!

      This time we have the Ice Troll.  I'm satisfied with this.  Especially proud of his ice chunk.  I've never been very successful painting ice or crystals before.

      Hope you enjoy!

      So after too many years of painting with my bottles just in boxes or standing around on my shelf of shame or in various drawers, I have finally at much cost of labor made paint organizers!  BEHOLD!  I made these to hold up to 204 Reaper dropper sized bottles (Army Painter and Vallejo fit too).  They aren't the only ones I use by any means, but they're the bulk of my paint collection.
      Wasn't the hardest thing in the world, but honestly I might try another method if I do this again.  Right now the units are loose, probably going to lean them on the wall--eventually I would put supports on the backs so they can stand up at an angle (think picture frames).  The insane super duper bonus feature is that I can put the two together and transport, or more importantly, SHAKE all my paints at once!  The main purpose was organization though and being able to see each of my paints and, when I've organized and sorted them, see the spectrum at a glance rather than digging through a drawer as I have been doing.  For the chromophiles out there I'll post pics when they're sorted and in their proper places.
      To make them, I sized the bottles and figured out the hole size and spacing (bottles are about 1" diameter, I used a 1 1/8" hole saw (paddle bit blew out the back side) and drilled 102 holes (sandwiched the 3/4" boards together).  It took hours as my drills' batteries kept dying and the saw lost its good edge by the 60th holes or so.  I used the "holes" I drilled out as supports (had to chisel the middle supports in half) between the silver parts and the 5mm (yes, civilized world, in the US we know how to use proper/metric, and certain sizes of wood are specified in metric!) plywood base (black, not really visible).  I carefully glued and screwed these together.  Decided to use up some spray paint I had lying around.  Enjoy and be inspired!

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...

      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...
