Your challenge is: Unknown

Bonus Challenge: Unknown Use Punk Rock Pink (09286) paint mixed into every color you paint on a mini....

(Thanks TGP!)

Since real life seems to have caught up to our Resident Sith Moderator, (Was that you Jedi Hamster??? :blink: ), I thought that I would put up a temporary post so folks could put there stuff up, and a mod could move it all around later.

 

I have no Idea what bonus and challenges his devious mind had planned, so lets just go with 4 minis this month, until otherwise informed....

This was the month of Rock and Roll Hot Pants Punk Rock Pink ...[?]... (Somewhere in there I'm sure I got all the words from the official paint name.)

 

The bonus activity was to do one mini where that color is mixed into Every color used on the mini.

I thought of a fairly easy way to do this. And also combine it with another forum-paint activity.

 

Baby Dragons. There is a "paint a dragon hatchling" contest going on. So mixing pink into all the shades found on a Red or Bronze (or even Purple) dragon wouldn't be that much of a stretch.

It's fair to say life is doing all it can go blow july to hell for me. The punk rock pink is correct, for one of the monthly minis use PRP in every single color on the mini (this is an odd bonus because the PRP is folded into one of the requisite 4 minis)

True, but that incorporates teeth colors, eye colors, etc, not just the 'primary' color
 

Also I wanted to bring back the one from last year: " 'Murica" where you use lighthearted cliche painting ideas on a figure that represents the US (again staying away from anything beekeepers-y)

I hope to be back in normal form soon but yeah...

Glad to see you coming up for air!

Hope you don't mind my presumption...

      I am stunned at my recently arrived Sophie's Revenge, and so excited to get it to the painting table (I will have to significantly reconfigure my painting space to ensure I have enough room...  As well as buy LOTS of new brown paint, ha!)  It is a thing of beauty, even without a lick of paint on it.  
       
      One of the first things I noticed was how the magnetized masts SNAP to the deck, hard.  That's what you want, so they'll stay firmly in place.  But when you remove 'em, they'll likely scratch the heck out of the painted deck.  So I plan to cut disks of black felt to glue to the underside/ magnet-side of the masts, so that when they stick, they're more gentle.  Thin felt should not affect how they stick, but it should make a big difference on the ship's wear and tear.
       
      Are you planning on painting yours?  What strategies are you going to adopt to make it as beautiful as you can, while still keeping it sturdy as a plaything for your RPGs, wargames, or maybe even little kids (don't judge!  mine are gonna be all over this thing!)

      StackaRack is a customisable plastic rack for miniature paints, designed to hold pots or bottles from any of the major manufacturers.
       

       
      Paint collections have a way of growing organically, and most of the current paint rack solutions out there are fixed to specific configurations, and made for a specific type of paint pot. If you're like me, and collect multiple brands of paint, that can make organising them a little frustrating, and so we thought we would try to fix that.
       

      StackaRack was designed to hold any of the major miniature paint ranges - from the dropper bottles used by Vallejo and Army Painter, to the tall pots from the likes of Privateer and Reaper (and GW's old range), and the current stubby Citadel pots. The injection moulded plastic parts will fit together with plastic clips, allowing you to build it how you like, and disassemble and reconfigure it as needed.
       
      Check out the project live on Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spiralarmstudios/stackarack?ref=acpi8t

      I'd never felt I had an artistic bone in my body until I started painting minis. Well, now, I decided I'm going to try my hand at 2D art. 
       
      I am following along Bob Ross videos on YouTube. I will note, and this is probably very important, that I am using acrylic paint and not oils. I did not want to spend oil paint prices since this is a new thing for me.
       
      These are the two I've done:
       
      Day 1: I learned a lot, I needed to do something with my paint to extend the drying time. This would have helped with the blending. Overall, happy with it excepting the house.

       
      2: I used some slow dry medium mixed into the paint today. Not sure if it was not mixed well enough or I didn't use enough but it only gave me like 5 minutes or less of extra working time. If anyone has any suggestions for how to use slow dry medium, please, let me know. I'm using heavy bodied acrylic tube paints.
       
      I followed along until the end and I decided to add some darker blue and green. I think that helped a lot.
       

       
      Another note, need to find sturdier paper. While this is holding up it likes to curl slightly while drying. The second one is taped to the desk on the back to try to minimize that problem. I am currently using a mixed media paper.

      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.

      Today I wanted to show off some cheap 54mm Vikings that I painted up as Frost Giants.

      I made these guys close to a year ago, and they were among some of the first larger sized minis I had worked on, so they're a little rough, and that's before looking at the quality of model, but if someone else is in need of a lot of giants like I was, then this might be useful to them!
       

       
      So these guys are from Tehnolog, a Russian miniatures company that I know very little about.  The minis are made out of a soft plastic like novelty toys you can buy with tickets at an arcade.  They also have abysmal detail.
       

       
      They're meant for 54mm wargaming, and I believe there's an intended game system that accompanies the line, but my goal was to get some cheap giants for D&D.
       

       
      They fit nicely on a 2in base, and could probably fit in with the smaller Reaper Bones giants, but they're definitely a little undersized.  I remedied this by giving them each a boosted base, with the leader getting two layers.  At a glance, they tower over a standard medium sized mini.
       
      The details were rough and there were some ugly mold lines here and there.  But they're serviceable.  They might work better as a half-giant if you want to use 5e's Huge Frost Giants.
       
      More pictures of each giant below the Spoiler:
       
      Tehnolog also has a few other lines of fantasy-esque minis if you're a fan of cheap minis.  I am still considering getting one of their other lines to convert into cheap-o Fire Giants.
       

       
      What's your favorite obscure miniature substitute?
