LE GASP! I'm on time!

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: 8!

Bonus Challenge: The First!

Hindsight! - OK let's be obvious, you SAW this coming. *rimshot* paint a miniature with glasses!

Bonus Challenge: The Second!

Our annual favorite challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
Pick a miniature that is NOT terrain.

This is pretty self explanatory.

Hard Mode Challenge!
February holds "National Margarita Day" and often hand-in-hand with the tropical drink, is gaudy 'Aloha' clothing! Paint a mini if your choice where the majority of the exposed surface must be free-handed in the mannerism of such! Yes that's a lot of freehand.
(I honestly just wanna see someone paint a slime covered in freehanded palm trees >.>)


Good luck

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

Okay, I'll bite. I haven't started painting yet this year. I have a 25 gallon crate of unpainted minis. I'm running a mini-heavy Pathfinder game. I have a half-converted griffon-rider on my desk. I can't call him 'gray' but I might call him a Dim Warden ::P: Wait that sounds bad. Hmm... :ph34r:

I'm back, hoping to get back on track with actually getting stuff painted (I only completed 3 figures last year :down:).

 

Targets:

  • Terran CAVs.  I have 10 at various stages of painting. I'm hoping to get some of those completed.
  • Star Wars Legion: just started prepping some Stormtroopers. Hopefully will get somewhere with those
  • 3D printed stuff.  I have two large totes of 10mm Sci-Fi terrain plus several 28mm vehicles. Hoping to get something painted.

 

And what actually happened:

  • Still no CAVs completed, but they are closer to finished.
  • I actually completed a unit of Stormtroopers.
  • I printed yet more things to paint.  I tested Badger's 3D Prime.  Nothing got painted.

 

So I missed the goal, as I only got 7 figures painted.
But I did get something painted at least.  So I'll be adding one to the goal for March-April.

So, I am finishing my campaign over the next couple of weeks and want to have appropriate minis for the final encounters.  I'll have to look and see what exactly I need, but a Dracolich and Death Knights, Archmages and a Pit Fiend are needed for sure.  Good place to start I guess.

Is there a giant big or anything enough to count as eight, I forget.

There is a very small chance I have a figure with goggles... maybe. How about SciFi looking wrap-around Eyewear?

Reaper makes a number of giants, and dragons that i would count as multiple figures for purposes of this challenge. 

 

I would count sci-fi goggles as "glasses". 

 

I think the last one is supposed to include something that looks like this:

Informational post has rough sizes-equivilancies, if you have a specific figure in mind for clarification, please post in that thread.

No brushes, air or otherwise, the entire figure must be fingerpainted ^_^ Primer? That's why there's brush-on, in this case, fingerpaint on. You can take advantage of thinned paint to flow as you want it, but application of the paint to the figure must be done using your fingers.
Goggles will count as glasses for purposes of this challenge.

And yeah, that or any other type of similar patternish. A google search of "aloha style shirts" will give you a plethora of images.

      Hi all, does anyone know where I could find a painting guide (PDF, video, anything really) to help me out with the Brother Lazarus Plague Doctor mini from the Dungeon Dwellers? Thanks in advance!
    • By NomadZeke
      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 works well, this challengehas been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again. 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/III 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)
      I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this - I am making a more concentrated effort in 'bookkeeping' this year. If someone would be willing to assist in such, it would be much appreciated.
       
      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 (if needed) that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods
       
      Jan/Feb: 8: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89751-janfeb-rpchallenge/
      March/April: 9:
      May/June: 8
      July/August: 9:
      Sept/Oct: 9:
      Nov/Dec: 9:
