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.

      From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135.
      A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases.

      I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper )
      But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos.
       

      This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield.
      ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter.
      Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even!
      I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that.
       

      I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys!

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      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
