All the information you need should be here.

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!

Now I really want spumoni ice cream.

 

I'm game. I can finish 9, or 9 equivalent. I have this half-built dragon I'd planned a lava base for... :devil:

 

Placeholder for finished products:

 

Speedpaint NPCs

 

I need 12 minis before the first session. I've finished more than half

Long Valley Caldera versus Yellowstone. Discuss pros/cons, activity, prettiness, modern death toll, etc ::P: (curious on your actual opinions, not actually demanding an answer)

I mean, if you REALLY want to, but I figure the fantasy/cinematic style is easier to manage than going a completely realistic route lol

Less popular versus Favorite. Semi-unknown cause versus Hot Spot. Kinda pretty vs Hot Damn Gorgeous (a trip to YS when I was eight was so cool that I forgot to have a compulsive nailbiting habit and it never came back). Activity - different? Both are "active"; I need to read more into Long Valley. If I remember right, it is in an area of strangely thin crust compared to what the crust is supposed to be. Modern death toll if either go boom? Very little due to lava flows. It is the ash and glass-particulates and sulfides in the air that'll get us all, and that will be highly dependent on the weather patterns at the time. And that's assuming we get a boom, instead of a flow, and in a bi-modal suite, it could be either. Flows aren't really long-term scary unless you put your house in the path (see: Hawaii).

I haven't participated in a few months, but I have a number of half-finished items to knock out.  9 seems pretty doable.

Placeholder for pics coming before the end of August:

 

1-5: Bones 4 Bog Skeletons

6-8: Bones 4 Ghouls and Ghast

9-14: Bones 4 Wraiths

In other words, all these guys are finished, just haven't taken the pics yet.

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys.
      Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos.

      On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set.
       

      The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right.
      They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.)
       

      I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway.

      These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well.

      Again, they should have come in a pairs of each.
       

      It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp.

      This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch.

      Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens.

      klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute!  I said the words! I did!

      From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer.
      I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely.
      And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman.
      Hence,  Torchwood the Furious here.
       
      Go on, you know you want to go on:

      Neat sculpts, the next KS is going to be fun
       
      I wish Reaper's breakdown of judging criteria actually reflected how high bases score. Looking at their little percentage breakdown, you would never know that the base was so important .
