Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2016 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

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...

I did a diorama with 3 figures for my fall exchange, I counted each figure separately....

None was really 'big'...

 

 

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!

--OneBoot :D

Morning Mrs. Boot! Who does the blind selecting?

 

And also what is the platypod talking about :unsure: mush-what? :unsure:

 

 

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!

--OneBoot :D

 

He is either planning conversions, or it is his Battle Cry, or it is something incomprehensible in platypodese....

Btw boot. I like the "one color must be mixed with all others" though I'd give a couple month lead in case people didn't have that one yet

BTW, if you wanted really random, I have a spreadsheet that can do that   ::):

 

For example:

Reaper MSP: Khaki Highlight, Reaper MSP: Weathered Stone, Reaper MSP: Polished Bone, Reaper MSP: Oiled Leather, Reaper MSP: Pure Black, Reaper MSP: Oiled Leather, Reaper MSP: Linen White
 
 
or
Reaper MSP: Pale Lichen, Reaper MSP: Brown Liner, Reaper MSP: Royal Purple, Reaper MSP Bones HD: Dragon Copper, Reaper MSP: Marigold Yellow, Reaper MSP: Volcano Brown, Reaper MSP: Blonde Shadow

I LOVE the random color idea!!! I may choose a mini beforehand, so I get a good laugh out of it too.

 

If that doesn't get added as a bonus, I think I'll do it on my own time. Though truly random would be difficult for me, since I have my paints arranged in a nice chromatic order....

I just figured out a way to do the random colors thing but account for nobody having the same selections of paints.

 

Anyone that wants to participate takes a photo of twelve paint bottles, they pick which twelve from their collection. After all these photos are posted: Zeke rolls a D12.

 

Whatever color that is (going left to right in each person's photo) is the required dominant color for their mini.

Sounds like someone has a d12 looking for work...

It would be mentioned a couple months in advance to give people time to acquire the color in question

And not use colors like Ginger Cookie or pumpkin orange that are limited time / edition...

Presuming everyone is going to use the same colors...

With that idea I was pitching each person's color might be different. Each person's 12 would be different.

 

And yes, the D12 is an under-appreciated polyhedron.

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      Second background, in progress.  Started with tape to control swelling and rolling.  First coat was brushed (1.5" cheap brush from hobby store) with a mix of gesso, water, and Patio Paint Fiesta Yellow (probably a dab of khaki to dull the tone too).  After a day or two to dry I used a chunk of construction sponge to cover the paper with a mix of water, pva glue, a drop of dish soap (helps with rings at this consistency, or so I believe), and Ceramcoat Raw Sienna (possibly some Apple Barrel Nutmeg too for redness).  Swiped the whole thing for coverage, then blotted, dragged, and blew as it dried a bit to achieve the variation in texture you see.  This one is going great, I must say.  The first one I did didn't look like the image in my mind until about 7 steps in, and never quite looked right.  Question, comments, critiques welcome!

      Finished this a while ago actually, but am just now posting the finished product.  I got a bug and am now making a few variations on these--just on art paper for the moment, but I wouldn't mind having them printed on neoprene or something a little more durable.  Now I just need more minis to photo in front of them!  Let me know what you think.  WIP here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83003-attempting-to-paint-generic-backgrounds-for-miniature-photography/&tab=comments#comment-1760821

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.
       


      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard
       

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.
