  1. Finally, for 7SS a Bayou Gator with the Two Gremlins in a Ghillie Suit upgrade! Well, my vision for this did not work out. I was envisioning a much more cohesive miniature, but this is what I ended up with. It's a silly thing, but it scored me a Silver, so I'm not complaining! So, my Grand Total was 52SS! I had lots of fun, and learned a very great deal as well from the competition! I had a great November, now onto the final month! See you in December! Caedrus.
  2. Caedrus, reporting in! So, this month, I finished two miniatures, and I've been messing about with photoshopping in a black background. The two finished miniatures are at 10SS each, making a 20SS total. First, my original pledge of Arik Schöettmer: Second, my eBay-rescued Rail Golem: With both miniatures, I was trying to improve my skills in NMM and OSL effects. I was pleased with my Iron-Man-Arik's copper NMM on his green-stuff backpack, and I'm slowly getting better at light source placement. I think the Golem could do with more contrast, though. I'm not sure
  3. This month, I shall be pledging a couple of these bad boys! OSL, NMM ... and who knows what else! Have a great December, fellow painters! Caedrus
  4. A quick discussion about 2021 Anyone want to host? I mentioned in a different thread that if anyone is interested in hosting the 2021 Painting Challenge, please do let me know. I'm happy to do it, but if someone else wants to undertake the role, please do put your hand up! I don't want to be the person who tries to bully their way into another term. If the people vote against me, then I can promise a smooth transition of power. No recounts, no accusations of fraud. 😉 So, the next statements are based around me hosting... Buyback in 2021 This worked. We'll do this
  5. It's the final month of the 2020 Wyrd Painting Challenge! This is the thread for the December Painting Challenge. I’m Caedrus, and I have the very great pleasure of being your host for 2020. While I am proud to be your host, this competition belongs to all of us, and if there’s anything that we can better to improve the Challenge, please do let me know. The link to the painter spreadsheet is here. December is, for so many people, a time of gathering around the fire with loved ones. Or, if you're in Australia, feeling like you're on fire for the next three months. Stupi
  6. I've attempted to give a summary in this thread.
  7. Hello, fellow painters. We’re about to hit December, and that means that the end of a truly unusual year approaches. For the last couple of years, I’ve had the absolute pleasure of hosting the Painting Challenge. Now, I am OK with doing it again for another year (and indeed, I have a few ideas), BUT I don’t want to be selfish. If there is a community member out there who would like to run the Challenge next year, please do speak up – send me a message, or put your hand up, right here! It’s a rewarding task, and I love being part of this community. I just want everyone to ha
  8. @Purple Mist: I believe that is an older sculpt, The Dreamer crew's Avatar (the Avatar of Imagination). I'm further assuming that it's being used as an Emissary for the crew.
  9. Wonderful, wonderful work, fellow painters. My sincere thanks to all the Wyrd team for the opportunity, and the generosity of the prizes. I'm more than happy to grab silver among such company! Most of all, you have all taught me lots and inspired me even more! Caedrus
  10. Caedrus, checking in! So, I have added a second objective to this month. I found a super-cheap built-and-based eBay rescue, and immediately said "Yes, Caedrus, this would be an ideal small testbed for some NMM techniques that you've never tried before". Of course. So, after a coat of ScaleColor 'Peanut Butter', I had this... ...and, a little bit later, here's the work-in-progress of the Golem, and Arik: The statue head on Iron-Arik will be repainted into a pale marble / Ivory colour. The blue is very pretty, but it makes the base too intense and distracting. I
  11. For me, I think the quality of so much of the background scenery was one of the real high points!
  12. ...and it's a nice throwback to the original painting of Santana, from memory.
  13. This has to be the most-heavily-contested category.
  14. Just some excellent paintworks here.
