May (ish) and June RPChallenge

Recommended Posts

Ok so early May kinda train-wrecked for me and my family so I really haven't had much time to write it up until now, apologies for the delay.

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.

Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

May and June 2017

Your challenge is: 9!

Bonus Challenge: The First!
Beware the Batman. In May 2014, this series first aired on Adult Swim. Paint a character you want to resemble a hero or villain from the series. Characters in the series may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beware_the_Batman

Bonus Challenge: The Second!

Spirit of Summer. No, no the mini, but you can do that if you wish. Paint a mini that embodies the spirit of summer to you. It can be a character in certain colors, a water scene, or (a personal favorite) a campfire.

Hard Mode Challenge!
Roulette Triad.

I used a highly scientific method of shooting rubber bands at the wall above my paint racks and seeing where it falls to choose three colors. All three must be used, and only these three (If you have specific colors: Great! if not, reasonable approximations are allowed, please ask if you have a question)
Clear Yellow
Carrot Top Red
Gem Purple

Good luck

I think A giant anthropomorphic hippo best exemplifies the spirit of summer for me ... for um reasons.. a little help here ? 

painting giant hippo guy is fun.  

i have got it!  because the hippo body type is seen too often on summer beaches.  I considered re-sculpting him to a speedo but didn't want to risk causing SAN loss. 


1 Spring over a log (1 month late) 

2. male barbarian 

3. Wizadress (from DDS2) 

4. Minotaur Hero

5. gnome druidess (icon) 

6. Winter, ranger

7. Yeti (bones 3)

8-9. Savage Hippo Avatar 3

10. Alien Jedi 3 (Whiphid), a yeti conversion 

11. Skeleton Archer 

12. hell-knight, order of scourge  

13-14. Eregris Darkfathom  and Tiik Baron


in progress (revised 6-20)

Mountain Man (KoD)  WIP

Viking 3

PF Iconic Cleric 

77052 Aina, Female Valkyrie



Some of these are not so much "in progress"  as started and then abandoned to my self of shame.

I am having some trouble abandoning things this month.

1-3: exchange figs


And that was it.  After almost 2 and a half years I hit a dry spell.  The track open, a week in Montreal, too many loved ones in hospitals for various reasons, all took up time and energy. And I seem to have developed some tendinitis in both wrists I should be taking care of, I guess.

Not sure how I'll do over the next 2 months either, but hopefully by September/October I get back in the grove and get caught up on my yearly numbers.

      Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites.
      We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges.
      Reaper only? - No.
      If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes.
      Are speed paints acceptable - Yes.
      Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes.
      Based or unbased? - Yes.
      Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes.
      NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy
      (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases)
      Medium and smaller = 1 ea
      Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea
      Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea
      Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea
      Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea
      Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up
      Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota
      Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures.
      If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures)
      If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually.
      Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more.
      You challenge begins...now!
      And Our Mantra:
      If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge
      The objective:
      To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota
      (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)
      What qualifies:
      Darn near anything!
      Any material!
      Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten!
      Exchange minis!
      Speed paints!
      Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well)
      Any Size!
      Etc! (I think that covers everything)
      Year long challenge
      Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods
      Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84372-january-february-rpchallenge/
      March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85335-march-april-rpchallenge/
      May/June: 8 https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86376-may-~-june-rpchallenge/
      July/August: 9: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87162-julyaugust-rpchallenge/
      Sept/Oct: 9:
      Nov/Dec: 9:
      Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      July and August 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Independence Day! Both Canada and the US celebrate their independence days in July. Keeping it clean - paint a mini that resembles the most absurd stereotype of the country, whether it's a lumberjack riding a moose with a jug of maple syrup, or a fat dude in a scooter with the american flag and a big mac.  Or something from the film Independence Day, that works too.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      August 22nd is National Spumoni day. 3-layered Gelato dish. Paint any mini in a themed pallet around your choice image of said dish.

      Hard Mode Challenge! Eruption
      Also in August is the fabled eruption of Pompeii. A full-size diorama is a but much to ask - but instead theme a mini around trying to escape the eruption (lava flows, flying chunks of rock, etc) particularly utilizing the OSL and an ashen look.
      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
    • By Maledrakh
      Another one of the half-painted minis on my painting station shelf, now done:

      Looks like she found a shining stone. Not sure if the OSL worked all that well on this mini. So a gnome is basically a hobbit with boots?
