Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2016 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

A slight addendum to the mounted figures: Some large mounted figure like Kyra/Lavarath will count as 3.

That makes sense.

Is it too late to make a challenge suggestion? Because I've frequently thought that a limited palette of 5-7 blindly selected paints might be fun. ::):

 

Huzzah!

When I do a vignette or Diorama, does that count too?

 

Do I count the miniaures that are on it or the total size of the thing?

 

Cause...plans...

There aren't really any rules built in for diorama...because basing is a variable that would be difficult to handle case by case. Could you pm me more details?

 

Boot,

Do you mean the pallet is "paint x from this random selection of 7" or?

I mean literally close your eyes and grab several paints from your collection at random. Use only those paints to paint a figure. :)

 

Another idea for a different challenge: choose a color other than white, black or gray. Mix that color with every paint you use on a mini.

 

As for what pckt said...my best guess is Mashaaf, though why he said that is a bit puzzling. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I'm not up for limited paint pallet.

 

I like to choose my colours myself.

 

But maybe as a Bonus challenge so anyone can choose wether to do that or not would be fine.

      I am the Lord of Darkness.
      I require the solace of the shadows,
      and the dark of the night.
      Sunshine is my destroyer.
       
      All this shall change.
      Tonight, the sun sets forever
      There shall never be another dawn!

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world.
      Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever.

      Thanks for looking!

      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.
       
      FAQ
      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:
       
       
      Participants:
      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!
      Reaper/non-reaper!
      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!
      Based/unbased!
      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
