I'm back to being late again!

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.

Your challenge is: 9!

Bonus Challenge the first:
March 26th is National Purple Day (raising awareness for epilepsy) - so paint a figure in monochrome purple. (Yes I know a slime would be an easy candidate)

Bonus Challenge the second:
April Fools' Brigade - Paint a mini in a completely nonsensical paint scheme or other silliness. ex: CAV with a giant bullseye on it, Adventurer with a shield that says "I'm with tasty ->" or something similar.

Bonus Challenge the Fiv Three, sir, three!
Monty Python and the Holy Grail released 33 years ago in April - paint up a figure to resemble a character from the movie

Spoiler

Not that reaper makes a 'not Tim the Enchanter' or anything...



Good luck

The game is made up and the points don't matter

Placeholder post, as I don't have any completed, but I do intend on focusing on a few things...

  • Ebonwrath's d20 random rainbow dragon, with a river running through a forest base.  I've wanted to finish him, and I've wanted to do a nice custom base.  Might be more than I can handle, but only way to find out is to just go for it.
  • Hajad from the Layer up! LTPK....  Because I want to finish the LTPK's ::P:
  • My two Bones Minotaurs, and the two Bones Gnolls.

Challenges seem particularly interesting...  So tempted to paint someone up in like...  hot pink and neon orange plate armor, especially if it were a death knight....  Because that's totally intimidating (actually, it probably would be but still!).  Two of the three challenges seem tempting, third one I'll have to see, as I'd have to look further into Monty Python due to not remember very many of the characters...

 

 

April 21 EDIT: So far, haven't gotten a single one finished, but I've gotten a lot of work done here and there, namely with bases, and then getting miniatures set up for priming.  I've also gotten decently far on my Skaven Warlord, but "in progress" doesn't count ::P:

 

Jan/Feb progress was 6/8, and Mar/Apr progress right now is at 0/9, currently leaving me at 6/17 for overall progress so far.  Sure, it isn't as much as I'd like, but the key thing is actually sitting down and hobbying, which is what I'm doing, and I'm more than happy about that.

So, thought things had settled down and I'd get to try some of the extra challenges (which looked fun). Instead (to keep things short) my father-in-law is now moved in with us until he gets a placement in a permanent care facility.  Needless to say, thing have been a bit distracting.

 

But I did manage to get enough done.

 

1-10: Reaper IMEF Marines

 

I'd say that hopefully things will settle down now, but as my wife goes on a trip next week, and the track opens up...next week, and the Montreal GP is in June,  oh, and I should really start looking for a job ,I don't foresee things settling down....

Got a lot of things started, but nothing finished this period.  Here's hoping to get that momentum going again, and not only doing all the stuff for next period, but also catching up so I'm even for the year! ^_^

      These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix).  I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job.  Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together.
      May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... 
      One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll.  In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid.  So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!

      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.

      This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
      "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.
       

      A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
      I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
       
      I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.
       

      This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.

      Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all.
      They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.

      I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her.

      From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag:

      A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry.
      The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow.
      Base and done.
      Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader.
