Resolutionary Painting Challenge, 1776 Edition

Recommended Posts

Technically a little late to launch, but better late than never!


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 pending 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: 5.  ...because you have the 24 hour paint challenge this month too, it really should be doable.

Bonus Challenge is:

As might be expects this month. " 'Murica! " So keep off the serious topics, have fun. I'm sure most of us know the 'fat scooter guy' picture. But seriously, if you can top THIS you deserve a medal, or something...Medieval Captain America? IMEF Iron Patriot? The Redneck Games diorama? While it's entirely possible to do a serious theme, I want to see what bizarre light-hearted renditions are in y'alls heads. We got enough serious in the world as is.
Seriously, I'd love to see someone top that.



The deadline Is planned for August 1 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

Sheesh, 5?  I'll find some time somewhere....I guess


1. Exchange figure

2&3: a couple of Counterblast Mekkus

4&5: umm maybe some scatter terrain.


Not sure how the count the barrels and crates, but since it was two sets of them, I figure at least 2, so done!!

Uh oh. Looks like I might need to do more speedpaints this month. On the bright side I have lots of bones to help with that. The Exchange might do the trick but we'll see when it arrives at its intended destination...


1. 02005: Tox

2. 02188: Knight Templar

3. 02617: Female Wraith

4. 02148: Guardian Wraith

nothing says american like a bald monk with a wavy sword m'right? 

*unless he was holding a hot dog instead* 


I blame the sculptor for the long wavy cloth bits hanging like stripes from his belt.  

He will work just fine as a consort to  the lady below.

Plus I will be able to show how much my painting has improved when painting people dressed in american flags! 


Ms July (painted several years ago)

Ok, sadly I didn't manage to come up with anything patriotic, but this will serve as my place holder for figure number 5.
