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 January 2017. 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 January 2017. 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 !

From gallery of Tadpoleface


Painted with mostly Vallejo Model Air and weathered with Model Colour applied with a nice bit of sponge. Bars metal edges was done with a good old fashioned 2B graphite pencil.

You can't see it but there is some liberal use of Tamyia smoke on the insides for those all important grease stains. and puddles of bin juice

Made my TT Combat, a nice touch is that the skips are 32mm scale and you can stand a figure on a standard circular base inside one.

Board Game: Dust 1947
Last month I set myself the goal of finishing all my Dust Axis infantry, many from boxes going back to the FFG distribution days. None of them are super standout pieces, the heroes are okay but the material is a bit soft for lots of crisp features. I've picked this weapon team because I spent a fair amount of time on the camo on the armour (including on the guy hidden behind them).

From gallery of EyeLost


Painted with Vallejo using the scheme for most of my Axis army (dark grey armour, black to brown for the exposed fabrics, dark green helmets, etc. - with a dirty orange has a feature colour). Base is decorated with the mix of stuff to look like a ruined urban battlefield.

Used mostly Army Painter. Vallejo paints were used for the green tentacles, pink tongues, and reddish purple hounds base color.

Chipped out this big one early January. The 'Home One' MC80. About 8" long and 1.25" wide or so, something like that for scale. Went for broke and 'ruined' the very clean look I had going by lighting it up via glow/windows. First time I've ever bothered light sources on the bottom. I am rather pleased how it has turned out, and paired with my Nebulon, it attracts a lot of attention during my games. Pictures set to medium for the contest guidelines, but better viewed bigger to capture some of the detail. Photos taken with my 7d2 and a 100mm/2.8 (all I gots, need something shorter)

A resin mini for Arena Rex:

Board Game: Arena Rex


Board Game: Arena Rex


35mm scale (it's best viewed in "large").
Painted mostly with Vallejo Model.

The prep/assembly was particulary tricky on this one. Arena Rex sculpts and resin casts are really excellent, but the parts' adjustment is sometimes a tad lacking (nothing that an x-acto and some putty can solve easily). Here, it was lacking more than a tad ; add to it about 15 parts to assemble, et voilà .
However it was definitely worth the effort. It's a cool piece to paint (and fairly easy, I'd say), and it's most impressive on display.

I'd recommend this miniature range to anyone who likes ancient times and wants to give a shot at resin (this particular mini is not noob-friendly, assembly-wise, but others I've painted were easier).

From gallery of Nekku


Misaki from Malifaux by Wyrd Miniatures. Sold as part of "The Thunder" set. 32mm heroic. Used mainly Army Painter paints.

One of the leader characters for Ten Thunders faction. Highly mobile martial artist, chops peoples' heads off for fun and profit.

Thoughts and process in the spoiler:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
All paints by Army Painter unless otherwise noted. Most colour mixes are about 1:1 or 1:2.

Hair:
Basecoated with matt black + uniform grey mix
Highlighted with deep blue

"Socks":
Matt black + uniform grey + deep blue mix
Highlighted with deep blue

White bits:
Skeleton bone + matt white mix
Soft tone wash
Some clean up with bone+white

Purple clothing:
I usually basecoat + wash areas like this, but decided to try and build up from shadow this time around.
Alien purple + matt black (purple turned out to be a fairly weak colour so this mix uses only a little black, I'd guess 1:5 or 1:10 black : purple)
Alien purple
I forget whether I mixed my purple highlight colours with matt white or skeleton bone. Few increasingly light layers of that at any rate.

Shaft of her weapon:
Gun metal + matt black
(very happy with the dark, barely metallic finish of this mix)

Blades:
Gun metal
At parts several layers of dark tone + blue tone wash mix
Highlighted with gun metal and further with shining silver

Non-silver metals:
Greedy gold
Used either soft or strong tone wash, quite heavily.
Highlighted with greedy gold and greedy gold + Vallejo metallic medium mix

Really happy with the purple, will probably try that method more in the future. Could have maybe gone for higher highlights with purple but it looks quite striking already, at least compared to most of my stuff.

Could have tried to do more with white, hair and sock areas but they're a bit too tiny for me. Didn't have the guts to put more blue in her hair since I wanted it to appear black. I've still got ways to go to find that balance between "black" and "nice tabletop contrast". As a sidenote I've also used browns and reds to highlight black hair/fur which looks really good but doesn't strike me as very cartoony, which is what I wanted for Misaki.

Should have probably gone a bit higher with my non-silver metal highlights. They didn't photograph very well but rest assured there's not much to photo in the first place

Overall really happy with this one.

I used Vallejo Game Air for the base colours and some highlights, as I can airbrush these without further thinning. Thinned Vallejo or Citadel colors for washing and Citadel colors for drybrushing and highlighting. For Metal I use Vallejo, too.
