Resolutionary Painting challenge December, Cool down

Recommended Posts

I'm actually getting this up in the first week! To quote OneBoot: Huzzah!


Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here: The total painted will be on the page here 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. I would also request that when tagging your show off, please use "RPChallenge" as one of them.

This month's challenge is: 4

Bonus Challenge is:

One Figure in a quad-chromatic scheme. Red, Green, Silver, Gold. The catch being: The Silver and Gold are strictly in the metallic colors. No black, no white, just shades of red, shades of green, metallic silvers, and metallic golds.
All four figures incorporating 2 of the 4 above colors in any combination.



The technical deadline Is planned for January 1, Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time).

...I think we all know the actual deadline is whenever I get around to it, and if pictures are delayed, get them up when possible.


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 am confused about the challenge. so for example you can use red shadow,deep red, carnage red and brilliant red, but not mix in black or white to change the color.

I might be on board with this one....  but see below: 


1-2  gift figures.(unicorn, mother and foal)

3.  gift - Trista the white wolf 

4. gift - Benedict Baker

5. Blightfang - WIP   Show Off 

6. Challenge figure. Fighter from DDS2 


speaking of gift figures, group shot time is fast approaching... I think my gaming group has been given 3 figures this year, before this 

batch, I wonder if I can borrow them back for a group picture. 


79 total

Made it all the way to December! Now Fallout 4 will prabably steal all my free time into the new year!


1. Dwarf Tower


6 Bonecrabs


2 Fires


3 Lizardmen


1 Shadow


4 Scoring Posts from DreadBall Xtreme



Painted in December: 17


Painted in 2015: 276


I don't think that is a bad number at all. Of course, I tend towards a sloppyfast "tabletop+" finish, the + being that I go a step or two beyond block colours and I like to do the face and eyes.

Dragon from 02399 Familiar Pack II by Sandra Garrity and Bear from Christmas Familiars.




By my count, these two figures bring my year's Resolutionary total to 104 for the year.  I'll try to top that this next year.

Thanks for the motivation everyone!

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...

      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      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...

      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 a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!

      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point

      So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on  getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
      As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick!  So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.

      Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
      Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.
