I did a quick version of this dumpster. There is a photo of the dumpster pre-graffiti, and pre-distress in WIP here.
It only needs to be sealed and glued- so now's the time to make any final suggestions.
I decided to go light on graffiti, though it could use more.

 

Doing bubble lettering was much harder than I thought it would be. I found a handy tutorial on Youtube. I had a general idea of what I was doing, having worked on a documentary for a mural program with a local community centre... but that was 5+ years ago, so I needed a refresher.

That said, I'm not sure how well I blended the 3 blues I used, or how visible the force was.

 

Graffiti:

 

Stage Right

CZP = ChiZine. A local small publisher of horror and dark fiction. I used to intern there a long time ago.

Lexo = Me

 

Under the lid

PIA = Paranormal Investigations Association. A reference to Ian Roger's Blacklands stories

 

Top/Lid

Anarchy symbol = Gotta have one of those, right?

BFM = Boyfriend Material, another band I was in that you probably haven't heard unless you like obscure garage punk that's never been officially released.

 

Stage Left

Bitter City = An old band I was in that you wouldn't have heard.

88's = something quick and random. I recently watched Kill Bill so...

A brief hijack:

 

I got one of these last year at Reapercon, and at one point wandered around looking at dumpsters seeking inspiration and ideas. I took several phone pictures of particularly interesting looking dumpsters.

 

At one point, I noticed someone looking at me funny.

 

Suddenly, my mind flashed into a parallel reality in which I was sitting in a little room explaining to police officers why I thought this dumpster was so fascinating that I had to take a picture of it...

Cool.

 

I've painted one myself, and it is part of my diorama in wording ( WIP Street Violence if you want some inspiration).

My version made the store to my surprise.

 

 

It's a great versatile model.

 

Can't wait to see how you will paint it.

I used Google. 'Twas very effective.

I'm not sure I understand

 

Bump for paint colors.

As a former battalion anti-terrorism / force protection officer I probably would have contacted the MPs and counter-intelligence personnel if it had been on post.

      Here's a simple one for you.  Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

       
      More Photos and Thoughts Beneath the Spoiler:
       
      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?
       
      Feel free to share your own photos!

      God this one was a fun one to paint. 🥰
       
      Anyone know which miniature Anne is painting on the right screen? 😄 
       
      Jon Overton, Dave Pugh, and Anne Foerster I tried to do justice. Lol
