March Resolutionary Painting Challenge!

Recommended Posts

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.
All the information you need should be here.

Your challenge is: 5

Bonus Challenge: The Fools' Guild.

This bonus challenge is a LITTLE strange for most. Yes it's a bonus theme, but, if you do this, I'll let it count for 1 each March AND April regardless of size.
Please tag it as "Foolsguild" when you post it so I can find it easier as well.

The idea here to paint a mini of any genre that has an absolutely, positively, horribly stupid banner/color scheme/etc for what they're doing. Say you have the pulp ninja - paint him tye-die. Or maybe It's a townsfolk like the barkeep whose apron says "Try the burritos" (which we ALL know is a trap.) And a personal favorite of mine: "Order of the Eye" the tabard insignia is a bullseye.

HOWEVER - I'm also challenging you to write a story on -why- they belong to the Fools' Guild. I'll personally be going with the Order of the Eye....yeah It's pretty stupid to have your front and back emblazoned with a bullseye. But I'll make a story for it.


I don't normally make extra requirements for the mini like a story, but that's part of the 1 per month count. Even better if we can drop them all in the show-off on April First.

A friendly reminder again to use "RPChallenge" in the tags for show-off to help them be found easier.


Feather me yon oaf!

Ale Cuisine!

You kids have fun!


I look forward to seeing what y'all think of for this one. Go nuts y'all.

March will be Dungeon Saga month.

We will see how many I get to finish, I probably will not have all that much time to paint this month. I aim to at least get the basic game set with the heroes and the undead done. Maybe also a set of furniture.



4. Dungeon Saga: Heroes of the Base game set


8. Dungeon Saga: 4 other Heroes, the Banshee and 3 Skeletons


4. Dungeon Saga: 4 more Heroes


1. Dungeon Saga: Bael the Undead Demon


3. Dungeon Saga: Valandor, Mortibris the Necromancer and not-Drizzt


6. Dungeon Saga: Ghosts and Zombies


5. Dungeon Saga: Dwarf King Grund (deceased), Tyrant King Blaine, and 3 Zombies


2. Nazi Zombies

FoolsGuild :: Village Idiot made from Bretonnian sprues. Based on: 


e2669a6bad62d28b3bce0059a149d7b088ca.gif (sigh)


I always wanted to model up TVI. Now is my chance.

Other possibilities :: 4-5 Ships, 4 more archers, 5-6 Skinks


But, what really happened is I found the stash of plastic Bretonnian archers and during March Games Workshop sent the entire model line of Bretonnians OOP. They don't sell them anymore.


Also, in old news, they previously blew up the entire planet that contained Bretonnia.



So, I attempted to paint half-a-dozen Bretonnian archers as ghosts:


6 Archers for March.

1: Khael Stonekindle

2-5: CAV:SO Dingos(4)



Afraid I got behind due to stuff this month so didn't even attempt the challenge piece.


I did get the second Dwarf painted, but he isn't based yet so I'll wait until he's complete and post him in April.

I think I've already met this month's goal.  So nice to be done early.  That said, I'm going to try and push well beyond.  Although I'm quite entertained by the idea, I've no ideas for the Fool's Guild challenge yet.  I'll have to look at the figures I've got and see if any inspiration strikes.

Pictures and count to follow.

I have an exchange mini to get out, then this month will likely see paint for my Dwarven Forge City Builder pledge and then...if I can get that done, I may try my hand at starting to paint Cthulhu Wars. 


ETA: Got the stone pieces completed - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67808-dwarven-forge-city-builder-terrain/?p=1338378

      I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but...   
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.

      So how do I paint something with a marble effect? I have a sepulcher or sarcophagus, primed light grey, and I want to paint it like it was made from marble. Any ideas or tricks? Colors? Anything? Bueller?
      If it helps, its the one from the Horror subset of the Bones 4 Kickstarter.

      Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. 

      Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
      Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      Well, looks like Hasbro is doing their own version of a kickstarter for a new release of one of the all-time classics.  I don't know if their site for the crowdfunding would be considered as a commercial site, but I'm sure it will be easy enough to find.  I'm in!
