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)

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).

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

      I am stunned at my recently arrived Sophie's Revenge, and so excited to get it to the painting table (I will have to significantly reconfigure my painting space to ensure I have enough room...  As well as buy LOTS of new brown paint, ha!)  It is a thing of beauty, even without a lick of paint on it.  
       
      One of the first things I noticed was how the magnetized masts SNAP to the deck, hard.  That's what you want, so they'll stay firmly in place.  But when you remove 'em, they'll likely scratch the heck out of the painted deck.  So I plan to cut disks of black felt to glue to the underside/ magnet-side of the masts, so that when they stick, they're more gentle.  Thin felt should not affect how they stick, but it should make a big difference on the ship's wear and tear.
       
      Are you planning on painting yours?  What strategies are you going to adopt to make it as beautiful as you can, while still keeping it sturdy as a plaything for your RPGs, wargames, or maybe even little kids (don't judge!  mine are gonna be all over this thing!)

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      StackaRack is a customisable plastic rack for miniature paints, designed to hold pots or bottles from any of the major manufacturers.
       

       
      Paint collections have a way of growing organically, and most of the current paint rack solutions out there are fixed to specific configurations, and made for a specific type of paint pot. If you're like me, and collect multiple brands of paint, that can make organising them a little frustrating, and so we thought we would try to fix that.
       

      StackaRack was designed to hold any of the major miniature paint ranges - from the dropper bottles used by Vallejo and Army Painter, to the tall pots from the likes of Privateer and Reaper (and GW's old range), and the current stubby Citadel pots. The injection moulded plastic parts will fit together with plastic clips, allowing you to build it how you like, and disassemble and reconfigure it as needed.

      I should have started this at the beginning of the year but a few months late is better than never. I've been working on getting stuff together for Q2 and some things for the rest of the year. For the quarterly stuff I'm going to continue to work on Grimtalon...that I don't think I have a WIP thread for and my large group has settled on doing a townsfolk theme and I'm doing the Fishwife from Dreadmere in Bones 4 KS. I have a diorama in the works but I really don't know if I'm going to finish it this quarter.
       
      My list for April:
       
      Theme: (Vampire):
      Jahenna, Female Vampire (77669)
      Limited Palette:
      Purple, Orange, Pink
      Styx Purple, Fire Orange, Runic Glow
      Giant Frog (44024)
      Player Character:
      Lysette, Elven Mage (Bones USA (30001))
      Monster:
      Gulper (44038)
      Duo:
      Cyclops (77705)
      Trio:
      Merowyn Lightstar (77675)
      New Release:
      Darius the Blue (Bones USA (30002))

      Will get some photos up soon.

      I'd never felt I had an artistic bone in my body until I started painting minis. Well, now, I decided I'm going to try my hand at 2D art. 
       
      I am following along Bob Ross videos on YouTube. I will note, and this is probably very important, that I am using acrylic paint and not oils. I did not want to spend oil paint prices since this is a new thing for me.
       
      These are the two I've done:
       
      Day 1: I learned a lot, I needed to do something with my paint to extend the drying time. This would have helped with the blending. Overall, happy with it excepting the house.

       
      2: I used some slow dry medium mixed into the paint today. Not sure if it was not mixed well enough or I didn't use enough but it only gave me like 5 minutes or less of extra working time. If anyone has any suggestions for how to use slow dry medium, please, let me know. I'm using heavy bodied acrylic tube paints.
       
      I followed along until the end and I decided to add some darker blue and green. I think that helped a lot.
       

       
      Another note, need to find sturdier paper. While this is holding up it likes to curl slightly while drying. The second one is taped to the desk on the back to try to minimize that problem. I am currently using a mixed media paper.
