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 November 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 December 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 all 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 !

Just for a bit of fun, here is a heavily weathered Post-Apocalyptic petrol station from Knights of Dice.

I used mainly Vallejo paints with one or two from P3. Inks and washes were from AP, Vallejo and new (and old) GW inks/washes. I also used weathering powders from Secret Weapon as well as some model rail foliage and static grass.

28mm miniatures is shown for scale.

Gosh it's been a long time since I posted something. This is one of the Stormcast Eternals from Shadespire. I've really enjoyed painting the minis from this game. Armor is Vallejo Gun Metal to Reaper Honed Steel to Stormcast Silver edge highlight. I've also developed a love of the Blood for the Blood God technical paint as I've found a number of really fun application techniques and effects with it while painting this game.

New contestant here!

I got into board gaming only a few years ago, and started painting when I received Gloomhaven. So here they are, my first minis painted ever.

I used craft paints (mainly Liquitex Basics and Americana) since this it what I had at home.

I developed a great liking for painting minis so I bought some Citadel paints; the Thinkerer is painted with a mix of Citadel's and craft paint.

I discovered this contest in the Miniature Painters Guild; thanks for running it, it's always nice to see other's work

This is a metal miniature by Privateer Press.
Size is about 50mm. Painted with Army Painter products.

I have no plans of fielding this model in the near future, but I wanted to try highlighting black metal. Pretty satisfied with the result.

These are painted in Vallejo paints mostly with a touch of Army Painter. I've used several Army Painter washes.

Not a lot of time over the last month to paint. I did a bunch of Hasslefree miniatures that look great as a group but are hard to photograph, so I finished off this guy for entry (this competition is the main thing that keeps me painting).

From gallery of EyeLost
From gallery of EyeLost


An Arena Rex gladiator, miniature by Red Republic Games. The regular guys are about 32mm tall and he is one of the bigger ones so stands pretty tool (it passes as a giant next to some proper 28mm miniatures). It's mostly flesh using the Vallejo flesh ranges from Bronze up to Pale Flesh with some Skin Wash.

I went with true metal paints but think I should've done NMM as the shine stands out to much against the flesh but doesn't have enough highlights over the surface area.

Gloomhaven starting characters. Paints mostly by Vallejo, as my remaining GW paints has mostly dried out (except a 20 year old red wash that I rarely use, from the time when their pots were actually airtight)
I considered upgrading their bases, but the priority was to get them ready to play, so maybe I'll do it later.

Now I'm unsure if I should paint all the hidden miniatures in advance, or individually as we unlock them...

Whoa, I finished quite a bit this month (yay, backlog melting!) and would like to share these guys with you:

From gallery of Farydia


They are still from the Shael'Han Faction and although they are just regular level 1 infantry, they have some details on them that make them really striking on the table. Also I like the leader mini details (e. g. the shoulder pads) quite a bit.

Paints are Vallejo, for the white robes I did a more detailed description in the painter's guild forums, here.

The explorers and campfires for 7th Continent. These guys are pretty small, about 20mm high. They were a real challenge to paint. I had to use two magnifiers so I could see the tiny details on these guys.

I used mostly Army Painter and some Vallejo paints.

This was my first attempt at doing base decorating. I wanted something generic enough to fit in any of the environments you can find in the game. So just some of the smaller ground gravel from the Army Painter basing set, painted Medium Grey and soft tone ink.

Here are the trolls from blood rage.
Painted with a mix of acrylic paint.

While I was painting the mystic troll to match the game's artwork, I noticed That he had a tattoo on his nose. They were painted with Acrylic paint. At first I tried to pretend that I didn't see the tattoo in the art, but eventually I went ahead and painted it on. I was really happy with the result, but I don't think anyone will ever notice it without it being pointed out.

This is a couple of the skeleton warriors for Shadespire. They're nice models, but I tried a new (to me) shading technique with it, doing a kind of a "reverse Zenithal". Instead of priming them all black and then dusting from above with white, I did a layer of Bonewhite all over with a shot of pure white from the top and a layer of "preshade" black from underneath with some more layers of color on top of that. I was able to get a high contrast, somewhat cell shaded look.

Materials used:
Base coats and highlights: Vallejo Game colors.
Washes: Agrax Earthshade and Nuln Oil.
Finishes: Matt Varnish
