All the information you need should be here.

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

January and February 2019

Your challenge is: 8!

Bonus Challenge: The First!
Finished - not perfect! Paint 4 minis from your 'shelf of shame."  A lot of our minis tend to end up there for a myraid of reasons - but a common one is 'can't get it to look just right" Don't get hung up on perfection - most models can be re-purchased again later

Bonus Challenge: The Second!
Bringing back a favorite for whatever absurd reason - Fingerpaint February! Paint a non-object/non-terrain miniature using only your own fingers. The exception is that priming and sealing may be done with a brush/airbrush/can/etc

Hard Mode Challenge!
Since most of us are in the winter season, and appropriately chilly, take a nod to the Greyhawk setting and the Land of Black Ice. A region of the world covered in black-blue ice. This inhospitable land is often haunted by arctic terrors, black-skinned trolls, and blue-furred bugbears among others. Your challenge is to paint an arctic terror (bonus points if it's a black-skinned troll or blue-furred bugbear) based on this 'sheet of black-blue ice.' Crackle medium may be very helpful for this. The more inhospitable, dark and dreary, the better!

As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

What the heck - if it keeps me motivated to paint this year.  

Last month I had a little contest with my son, and I managed 16 figures as a result.  Unfortunately, because I won, he doesn't want to do another one. 

 

1/9/19:

First accomplishments of the new year - six speed paints for my D&D game:

So let me see if I have this correct. To participate in this challenge I simply post all of my minis completed during the designated time frame with the appropriate title or tag (depending on manufacturer) in the Show Off section. Then, I come over here and provide a link to the completed figure in a convenient post (such as this one), and update that post as new miniatures are completed? In addition, I should point out if they meet any of the bonus challenges along the way. 

 

Did I get that right? Because if so I'll toss a few more of my completed miniatures  from the past week up on the Show Off thread tonight and take part in this fun sounding challenge.

As stated in information post - it's an informal challenge (no sponsors/rewards) more of for fun and to help people paint more, but yes that's basically it.

It can also be rather fun, especially the "wait, you want us to do what... with whuuuuuh?!?!" challenges that come up sometimes...  Had a blast doing the finger painting one....

      From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135.
      A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases.

      I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper )
      But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos.
       

      This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield.
      ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter.
      Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even!
      I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that.
       

      I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys!

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      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.
       
      FAQ
      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:
       
       
      Participants:
      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!
      Reaper/non-reaper!
      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!
      Based/unbased!
      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/

      Nov/Dec: 9: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88521-september-thru-december-rpchallenge/
       
      Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.

      All the information you need should be here.

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

      The Last quarter of the year 2019 because real life is a bugbear sometimes.

      Your challenge is: 18!

      Bonus Challenge: 1!
      Fall! Paint a mini that has fallen over (for whatever reason) (Pompeii guy works for this too!)

      Bonus Challenge: 2!
      This is Halloween! - Paint a mini using only colors that have black, orange, and purple in the name. You may also use the paints available from this year's ghoulie bag.

      Bonus Challenge: 5!
      Festive feast - Since both US And Canada have their Thanksgiving in this time bracket - paint up a mini (figure or terrain) to have some food being presented, if you can do a drinking vessel to be painting like a full glass, even better!

      Bonus Challenge: 4!
      For-lack-of-a-better-idea- December 15th is national Cat Herders' day! Paint a tabaxi, or any other mini featuring a feline. (It's a real holiday, go ahead, look it up)

      Hard Mode Challenge 1!
      Jack-o-lantern's light - Paint a mini where the only source of light would be coming from inside a jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin may be part of the mini/base or sculpted

      Hard Mode Challenge 2!
      Under Wraps- Paint a mini so that anything that any non-flesh (armor-weapons-cloth-etc) looks like it's patterned wrapping paper. This is assuming a humanoid figure. Dragons or such apply the same challenge to the whole body.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
