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.

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

      I admit to getting a bit more than just the core set in the Bones 4 kickstarter....but I have decided to paint the entire core set before tackling any of the expansion sets. However, there are also a bunch of add-ons to do. Most of those are rather large... but we start with some mid-sized ones:
       

      These are the "Skeletal Monsters" add on subset. A Chimera, an Owlbear and a Manticore, plus a heap of monster bones / spawn pile scatter terrain piece. Also there is a sprue of different heads to you can convert to other monster skeletons if you like.
      I am keeping the sprue of monster skulls in the bitsbox for now.
      The wings are in a much more rigid (and presumably more brittle) material than the bodies that seem to be in the more rigid bones 3 material.
       
      Chimera:

      I made a 3D printed 70x50mm oval base for this one. These were hollowed out from the top so the miniatures own base fit inside, with some putty to fill them out.
       
      Owlbear:

      I made a 50x30mm base for this one.
       
      Manticore:

      This one has a 60x35 base.
       
       

      The bone pile scatter terrain bit.
       

      I have a bone to pick with you guys...
       
       
      How I painted these:
      Black undercoat with white ink zenithal sprayed on. After this was thoroughly dried out, I painted Citadel Skeleton Horde contrast (yes! Contrast paint! It works like a thicker ink or stain!) all over.
      When this was thouroughly dry, I drybrushed in varying degree with several bone-type colours, both yellowish and whiteish ending with Reaper Splintered Bone at the very tops.
      Details such as horns, beak, teeth, stingers and claws in various black and grey colours I mixed on my pallette.
      Base in Vallejo Earth followed by some tufts and my autumnal flock mix, finised with black rims. All of them done from basecoat in an evening including drying times.

      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.
