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 October 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 30 November 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 !

Another tentacle type monster added to my collection with the kickstarter for Conan.
This was really fun to paint except the mouth which since the model came assembled was hard to use the brush inside the mouth. Also first time using Water effects.

Done in the nick of time for the contest! whistle

Captain Gunnbjorn is a white metal miniature. He is about 55mm tall.
Dozer & Smigg are a white metal / resin miniature. They are about 90mm tall.
Both produced by Privateer Press.

Painted with Army Painter products
Basing with sand, Milliput and Army Painter tufts

The look of the studio paint jobs on these two got me into painting Trolls. However I kept putting off buying them. Both due to a hefty pricetag on Dozer and also because they have a terrifying amount of details

I've been quite productive lately, so the choice was tough, but here it is.
"People of Capua, I give you... Anum with his pet hyena, Fluffy".
Not sure about the Hyena's name.

Resin-cast miniature, with many tiny parts (the chain, jeez...). So the pose and detail level is excellent, but the prep (assembly, putty) is tricky.

Size : 35mm.
Painted mostly with Vallejo Model.

Best viewed in "Large".

7. Board Game: Tanks: Panther vs Sherman [Average Rating:7.26 Overall Rank:4350]
Board Game: Tanks: Panther vs Sherman
I'm taking a departure from miniatures this time round and showing off a game board that I finished in October. It was built for Tanks to be run at my local clubs Open Day and had lots ot time and effort put into it.

Board Game: Tanks: Panther vs Sherman


The terrain board is shaped polystyrene smoothed over with spakfilla and covered in patching plaster to add texture. This is then painted and then glue applied and flock sprinkled on. Following the Terrain Tutor on YouTube's advice I went with light colours in open areas, medium green for the rest and dark for wet or shadow. Because I'm a wargamer I made sure that forest edges were clear to see on the board. The forests were built from Woodland Scenics tree packs and Hob-e-tac, which took me a long time to learn how to use properly. The little buildings are Dave Graffam paper-craft scaled down to 15mm scale.

Sadly the board didn't win best display at the Open Day but that was due more to the large number of really excellent tables that were on display. Most people found the water to be too green so I may fix that up at some time in the future but for now it is back to painting miniatures.

An action shot of the table.

Board Game: Tanks: Panther vs Sherman


It's 3x3 so it'll be usable for lots of skirmish game at 28mm as well as Tanks.

Here's my entry for October 2016. I really like the new paint job I gave my orc general. I plan on using the same scheme on the orc minions.

It's November 2016 - election month in America - so I suppose I should give a stump speech to earn your vote; so I present the following hypothetical situation for your amusement. Many thanks to Terry Vaught's excellent letter to the editor for the inspiration:

What if Donald Trump Entered the Golden Turtleback Competition?

External image


I know painting. I have the best paintings.

I paint fabulous miniatures. If you looked at all the miniatures I painted, you would agree. You would LOVE them.

This contest needs great miniatures, and I am awesome at painting miniatures.

My opponents say my miniatures are small - such nasty painters. They're wrong. My miniatures are HUGE and I have a BIG BRUSH. I paint my huge miniatures with a big brush.

If I ever created a game, it would have the best miniatures. The miniatures would be so good it would blow your mind. I know how to negotiate deals - I would make CMON pay for any miniatures I make. Too many companies make bad deals. I'm hugely successful because I don't make bad deals. I can't share the details with you right now. My opponents would steal my ideas; talking about my plan is against the advice of my lawyers.

My plan is great because it's so simple. It's so simple, folks. If Games Workshop releases those deleted Space Hulk files on Boardgame Geek, I will share my plan with you on how to make miniatures great again.

Other painters might challenge me, but then they go away. They don't have the stamina to keep painting great miniatures every month. I have what it takes to paint the best miniatures; and I keep painting because I enjoy winning. I win all the time because I'm so good at it.

I will win BIGLY in this contest. If I'm not picked for the Golden Turtleback, it's proof the contest is rigged. People who disagree with me should be punched in the face and run out of town. Get'em out of here!

I've been working on this guy on and off for a while and finally finished it last month. Based with black gesso, then airbrushed base coats for the dragon and the rocks. I considered doing the wings with the airbrush given their size (if you are interested, see - http://eyeoferror.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/how-to-airbrush-lea... ), but elected to use a combination of washes and dry brushing instead. I've discovered that I like the effect and it works well to layer colors and make the "leathery" details of the wings show themselves.

All the paints are Citadel (as were the washes)

Some evil snowmen and even more evil penguins based for Hordes of the Things. I quite like the figures, they are nicely animated. I found painting a mainly white figure quite challenging, ended up with a black base with white drybrushed over it.

These are, I think from 15mm.co.uk, though the snowmen are about 40mm high and the penguins about 15mm, so obviously more to a 25/28mm scale.

The paints are mostly MP Miniature Paints (which I find are generally quite good) and Anitas Acrylics (which are variable - some are fine, others are too runny or gooey). The brushes were mostly cheap ones from The Works - good enough for me, and they seem to be of a reasonable quality.

The original game comes with cardboard towers. But there are two problems, they are fairly fragile and are tall so block sightlines.

Martin DeOlden made some really nice 3D printable towers. Since I don't have a 3D printer I had to use Shapeways and it was just too expensive. Plus I wanted something short. So cut down the tower to just the top. These cost about $20 each and I printed 4.

These are white so painted with Army Painter. After primer, used Ash Grey. Then dark wash. Dry brushed with ash grey and a much lighter touch of white. Then satin clearcoat.

Size is 2.5" x 2.5".

Anyway, here's a "Driver" character from Reign of Cthulhu, painted for a friend:

From gallery of Orcoteuthis


He's about 35mm tall (excl base), so might loosely be considered "heroic 28mm". Painted mostly with Vallejo paints.
