They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

You are once again invited to take part in the monthly Golden Turtleback miniature painting contest.

The contest has kept its original name in honour of its founder David Anderson (turtleback). It's usually run by Cerith Morgan-Jones (Bastion of insanity). I'm merely keeping the contest going until Cerith returns.


Please give this geeklist a thumb to help get it to the front page, and click on the images you thumb and give the actual images thumbs up as well !

The more contestants the better! New painters are more than welcome!

RULES

1) Add the game of the miniature(s) you painted as an item to the list. Insert the image(s) in the body of the entry. Use the format [imageid=xxxxxmedium] where xxxxx is the id of the picture.

2) The image you submit must have been uploaded during September 2016. Gallery images are okay but submitted images are preferred.

3) One entry per person. You may submit images of a single miniature or a group at your discretion.
You may, however, use either:
up to two 'normal' pictures of your entry, usually, the front and back of the miniature(s)
OR
one image of a montage/collage of your entry.

4) You are the artist. Please do not submit miniatures painted by someone else.

5) Make of the mini, scale and paints you used are appreciated.

6) The contest will end on 31 October 2016. The winner will be the picture with the most thumbs. Winners will appear in the next months’ list.

7) Users can thumb as many entries as they like.

In the interests of maintaining a level playing field for all entrants, if an entry does not conform to the above rules, it will be removed. New contestants will be notified beforehand so that they can edit their entry or submit another one that meets the criteria.

PRIZES

I'm reliant on tips to offer prizes. Any tips received will awarded as follows:

1st place: 35%, plus an exclusive microbadge! Microbadge: Golden Turtleback Painted Miniature Monthly Contest winner
2nd place: 25%
3rd place: 15%
Encouragement Awards: 25% (will be given to non-placing worthy entries with a bias to new participants.)

One random thumber will receive 5 !

The miniature is, I think, from Artizan and is painted with Vallejo paints and inks and some old GW washes.

Vallejo paints all brushed on. Pretty basic to do, Brown Violet, wash down with Army Painter strong tone and then start working Brown Violet back up through Khaki then add decals and extra washes. I have an Pershing done the same way but not in this group photo.

I was tempted to do my Tail Feathers rats after my mice did so well. The problem with having a good month of painting is having to many options to select from.

Basing with cork and Army Painter tufts.

Made from Bones material this model was weird to paint, as the wings actually moved slightly during drybrushing. As much as I like the Bones lines for inexpensive models with good detail, I start noticing the drawbacks after working on metall and restic for a while.

And here's another entry in my line of non-award winning miniatures, the Undead minions from Defenders of the Realm. These are army-men quality miniatures and not the CMON/Games Workshop/FFG figures you're used to seeing in this competition. If I had to describe my strength as a painter, I'd probably say it's my ability to Rumplestiltskin straw into gold:

Here's the comparison to the original base game figures:

From gallery of Autoduelist


I discovered an interesting solution for the frosting problem while lacquering these figures with Citadel Purity seal. I noticed Treehouse Acrylic Matte Finish was always a bit tacky after drying, so I tried it out on a frosted figure from this set and it restored the paint job (no frosting), which I then resealed with Citadel Purity Seal. Hopefully I won't have to test this out again in the near future, but it sounds promising as a solution.

[Edit] I forgot to mention how ugly the pre-painted option was; which is why I elected to go the do-it-yourself route. Notice the stubby legs which should have been angled to look like they were hidden by the sword and shield. I fixed it by clipping them off the feet and gluing on the lower legs from some Reaper Bones skeletons.

Here's my pick for september:

A Leonardo Da Vinci bust, 1st player marker for Legendary Inventors (to be released in october/november). That's a production sample that I painted for the game's designer, Fred Henry.
That's the 1st time I paint a bust, this was nice (the game is good too, if you're wondering ).

Not traditional mini's, but these are my Formula De/D cars.

1971 Le Mans
Board Game: Formula D

Modern F1
Board Game: Formula D


Both sets of cars are from Shapeways in the Frosted Ultra Detail plastic. They're about 1:200 scale. That makes the Le Mans cars about 20 mm long and the F1 cars a bit smaller than that. Paints are Vallejo model color except white, which is Citadels.

All liveries are based off of real world cars, with the exception of the Francesco Bernoulli car, which was for my son.

First time I've painted any sort of game mini. You can see some of the F1 cars in action at my league's website.

Not truly Descent figures, I painted these Reaper Bones Villagers to use as proxies instead of villager tokens in game. I used mostly Citadel paints and washes to give them an NFC North color theme.

Board Game: Arcadia Quest


Orc marauder from Arcadia Quest. Painted this after watching a ton of videos, mostly Sorastro's and Painting Buddha, and only having painted before some stormtroopers and royal guards from Star Wars Imperial Assault.

Base is ~25mm size and the figure is ~45mm tall.
Primed black with Vallejo spray primer.
Paints are from Vallejo Arte Deco range, all brushed on.
Finished by spraying with matte varnish, also from Vallejo.

I tried to apply some of the techniques I saw in the videos, like layering and glazing. I used no washes. I'm pretty happy with the result, though I may comeback and do something else with the base.
