All the information you need should be here.

Your challenge is: 8!

Bonus Challenge: The First!

Frostbite:
Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it

Bonus Challenge: The Second!

Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
This is pretty self explanatory.

      A while ago (alright a long while ago) a gameshop was going out of business.  One of the last things left on the shelves were a series of Artizan Design pulp characters.  The price was right and i was planning a Cthulhu game so i purchased a number of their packs.  The game fell through and the miniatures sat in the back of my storage cabinet.
       
      But in a fit of wanting to paint something modern, I brought them out and gave them a quick paint job in case i developed a need for a crew of 20's era adventurers.  I also had a bit of fun with their posing for pictures and got some much needed practice with the camera (Kudos to @Doug Sundseth for his expertise and help)
       
      So....
       
      It was 1922, the war was over and the world was in a frenzy of frolicking and excitement but at the edges, darkness was beginning to creep back into the minds of men.  a group of scientists were discussing their views of the war in a room containing the private library of Wilhelm von Bruhegier

       
      "over here my good fellows, do you see it on the top shelf?" Jacob had spotted a tome of a lost civilization said to be the path to the vaults of that race with treasures untold.   the others rushed to look as well!

       
      While realizing it could make them rich and support the university for decades, I was also a job for younger men.  As there was a curse associated with the vaults, they didn't desire to have their names attached so they carefully provided a map to one of their graduate students and dropped hints to a trusted archeologist and a well heeled patron of 'unique' cultures.  They met in the library to discuss what they had learned.

       
      A careful investigation of the shelves provided access to the priceless tome!  While the men evaluated the book, the archeologist was drawn to something different about the desk...

       
      A little manipulation of the desk caused a secret drawer to spring open providing an ancient compass and a cypher key!  with that the party was off to seek fame and glory!  However, not far behind them Madam Bruhegier came into the library to determine the fate of her husband's works

       
      Quickly discovering that the bait had been taken she and her henchmen were off to recover the goods... after they young fools had sprung all the traps and taken on the curse of course!  Before leaving, she went to the shelves and extracted a small metal symbol, said to be the answer to the final puzzle

       
      Many days later the inspector hawkens arrived on the scene with 2 detectives, investigating the deaths of three of the university professors and the disappearance of three promising students

       
      investigation of the room turned up evidence of the missing students but no indication of where they had gotten to.  a nudge by the inspector revealed the secret drawer and a note left by the intrepid archeologist.  The inspectors fanned out to search for more clues, quickly discovering signs of the Madam's passing and fearing the worst...

       
      And this is where our story leaves us.  i hope you enjoyed the minis and the little tale I put together for them.  This was to be the beginning of the Cthulhu game that never got started.  (players were broken into two groups: the adventurers and the police)  the quest was to discover one of the treasure vaults of Atlantis
       
      Thanks for looking!

      So now that we know who won the Game of Thrones and ended up sitting down...
       

      Dragoth the Defiler on Throne. Just look at the strength of that undead overlord! Holding his sword casually in the air with his arm outstretched, Darth Vader-style!
      This mini is from the second Bones kickstarter core set. I based it on a 50mm round lipped and put some black flock around it. Looks good!
      This one can also do double duty as a Charnel Throne scenery item for my Age of Sigmar Flesh Eater Courts Army.
      The sword simply would not stay glued to the skull I placed the tip at. That is the power of Bones plastic memory for you. I should have heat treated the thing to position it correctly before painting. Oh well. No matter.
      Reaper makes a metal version of this that presumably predates the Bones 2 kickstarter, and that has a vampire's head instead of a skeleton's skull. I wonder why they changed it to a skull for the Bones version?
       

      "Ah! We meet again! And I see your sword is as big as mine!"

      The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game.
      For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis.
      On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar.
      I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect.
      I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions...
      Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons.

      Tick, tock, tick, tock...

      Werecrocodile. Yup, a werecrocodile. Presumably someone survived getting bitten by a croc and then turned the following full moon, tearing off all their clothes to waddle down to the river and burble at the moon?
      So now we are just waiting for the WereDuckbilledPlatypus and WereMoose with baited breath. Maybe in Bones 5?
      Thankfully this mini does not have any clothing, armour, weapons or other items about it's person. This can work as a monstrous beast of any kind. Even a Kaiju in a game of Epic.
      This came from the third Bones kickstarter.

      Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.
