Is it just me or are there a lot of missing entries in the galleries? 
Only 9 in Gold and 5 in Silver? 

Maybe Kai still has to approve some images. 

Not just you, that's all I see too. Likely still pending, I know mine is too!

Yeah, must be that. I forget because of the time difference. Poor Kai will still be snoozing away

Kai approved the 1st batch 9 hours before brushes down, so I guess lots of people are not yet approved

Agreed. If we have to be iron painters, he needs to be an iron employee. lol

My 2nd round entry by the numbers

- Number of pieces in the figure: 8

- Number of paints used: about 30

- Brushes used: 2

- Number of times I had to glue back that &%#$&$ pipe: at least half a dozen   :D

I can't tell you how had it was trying to paint mine without a mini holder.  Had to hold him by his leg and that meant lots of contorted brush painting past limbs and things!!

Just looking at the bronze, you strip away the dioramas and wow, the skills. 

It's good to see that more and more people are also learning that one way to make your model look better is to photograph it against a backdrop of some variety (even if it's just a simple piece of paper or cloth) and put together a couple of views into a collage.

Yeah I had to. It would only balance add one piece as is only his hands that are attached to anything.  So had to hold by his legs and paint them last.  It was banished 3 different times to prevent paint rubbing off

round was unique but black base is about nothing interesting. I am mointing my miniature to different one eventually. Are you keeping the same base or changing it?

I use Iron Painter as a personal challenge to grow as an artist and to paint miniatures which won't ever end up on a gaming table, hence why I usually do dioramas each round. Since doing that wasn't an option this round I sculpted the bust I painted to specifically fit onto a 30mm base, so no need to move it onto something else eventually.

I'm moving my mini to something more steampunk. We all could post here our rebased minis, if anyone is interested :)

Hoping the next round is paint a 30mm base with a black unpainted miniature on top.

Then we can just marry the two entries up

I'm interested to see this of everyone's minis! 😊 I will throw in my own as well - I rebased her onto her proper board game base shortly after my submission was finalized. (Please pardon if this upload goes wonky, I'm on my phone)
