Start scraping off those mold lines NOW!!! :lol:

 

I actually have started. I knew it'd be pretty time consuming and I always miss one or two here and there.  ::D:

 

you should tape the mini to the calendar on its assigned day and pull it off to paint as you go.   Kinda like those event calendar at Christmas.

 

Haha, I was joking with husband that he should make me an advent calendar full of minis for Christmas. I'm not sure if he was amused, lol.

A mini, mini cupboard with 31 doors? That would be pretty cool. Especially if you didn't know what was behind the doors... but then it's hard to prep them... and prepare paints for them.  But to open a door every day and get a new mini would be pretty cool!  Might need a couple of extra large doors to fall throughout the month too... Hmmm...

Oh well... I'm no woodworker... just a dreamer...

We did this for my son a couple years back, though I had already painted them.  He loved it!  We bought a cloth advent calendar for each kid with pockets and fill them ourselves each year.  

 

On topic of the monthly challenge, I think it's absolutely amazing!  I only manage 2-3 nights a week when I get to paint so would likely never get to do this but I will love watching you!  Good luck!

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
       
      Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.
