Did you print the Police Box and notice pieces or freehand them?

oh no, I totally printed them. Like 9 times.

Then I used matte medium to shellac them on.

Sweet!  Especially with the Weeping Angels.  (To complete the set, I feel like we need FOUR Weeping Angels, all facing the Tardis at once.  And then ... how to make the Tardis look like it's disappearing?  ;)  )

Thanks!I'm not a Dr. Who fan, but my brother enjoys it. Should I have bought 4 angels? Is that a thing?

 

Sorry, I was being a bit obscure there.  The "Weeping Angels" show up in an infamous episode of Dr. Who called "Blink," written by Steven Moffat.  My reference to four Weeping Angels surrounding the Tardis was meant to indicate a particular scene from the story -- but if you haven't seen the episode, then it'd have no real meaning.  Really, just having two Weeping Angels and a Tardis is quite sufficient to get the idea across, I think.  :)

 

(I'm not especially a Dr. Who "fanatic," but during the early seasons of the Dr. Who reboot, I particularly enjoyed several episodes written by Steven Moffat.  I think it's particularly because he took several of the tropes that were particular to Dr. Who in general, and then played with expectations, sometimes even inverting a trope or two, making those particular episodes stand out, in my entirely subjective opinion.  Of them, I think "Blink" is my favorite -- even though there's an awful lot about the adversaries that is just plain silly, and doesn't stand up well to "fridge logic" if you think too hard about the workings.  :)  But then, over-thinking Dr. Who probably spoils the fun in general.)

"Blink" is often listed on "best Who episodes" lists... for all that the Doctor barely appears in it. It's also nice in that all you have to know is that the Doctor is a time traveler, and the blue box is his time machine. That's it. Recent seasons, you've had to be firmly rooted in the show's mythology to have ANY idea what's going on.

But "Blink" stands alone.

And, strangely, Moffat considers it a throwaway episode.

 

 

Nicely done, Marineal! A little bright on the blue, but well done, nonetheless!

That is exactly what I know about it. And something about crying about someone named Rose. Or River, or Song or something.

 

The blue did turn out a little bluer than I meant to...If you google 'tardis' there are about 19 different shades of blue of all the different things. 

I decided that it was blue, and I was just gonna go with it. :)

 

I'm glad y'all like it. Bodes well for tomorrow!

Pantone 2955c is the BBC sanctioned T.A.R.D.I.S. blue. It's more of a...faded(?) color. Really kind of close to Reaper's 09231 Heather Blue. Maybe a bit darker? It's hard to tell on a monitor.

 

Still, this Doctor approves.

Yep. That's a Tardis all right. :;):

 

I think the lighter blue works. It's like it hasn't completely transitioned yet.

That's it! We need a casting in the translucent plastic! ::o:

 

Quick everybody! To the Bones minis we want to see thread! This has to happen!

      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.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84371-2019-rpchallenge-questionsannouncements/
      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.

      This is the Reaper Bones Dire Bear (SKU 77494).  This was another test of contrast paint, this time over a base of skin color.  I think it turned out pretty good, and it was fast, which is always a plus when trying to conquer the mini mountain.
