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

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

      The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.
      The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

      So I painted her in a similar scheme.
       

      The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil's frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.
       

      Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew...

      Plonking away a the Bones 4 core set, this is number 5:
       
       
      I am not a number! I am a free man!
       
       
      The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.
       
      He has a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
       

      There's a new playah in town! Come get some!

      AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came!
       
      This was my entry in a painting league at another  miniatures forum.
       
      In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style.

      It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being.
       
      The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As one of the commenters in the LPL-post stated: "Less is more".
       
      Lots more pics, but yah gotsa clicks!

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!
