Pete I am sure something will inspire you soon. A break is no bad thing and you have your man cave to sort out don't you? As already said you used up the energy for 5 models in doing your GB!!

If you are really at a loose end maybe there is a website called bikinifloorcleaners.com you can browse!

Making this a monthly or even bi-monthly thing sounds like a great idea. After a couple of months there should be a great reference of different figures and techniques on this forum to dig into for all kinds of great ideas for people just starting on figures.

indeed, Kenny, Indeed.

Sometimes we all need a break. My painting is my break. My relax and unwind time.

I think everyone in the Phantom GB has really been pushing themselves hard. When it becomes work that's when we must reevaluate what our priorities are. I was recently a victim of this mentality. My wife had to pull me away as the real work wasn't getting done.

So that is why I don't want to pressure anyone with any real or solid time constraints at this time. Once we have a regular rhythm with this workshop we can do some experimenting and find what makes this a comfortable learning environment.

I certainly don't want to burn this out before we really get started.

Man cave is on hold until the electrics get sorted (electrician has disappeared lol) and yesterday I found the condensate pump from the boiler has got gremlins in it and had a mini flood in the cellar, I think the modelling gods are trying to tell me something.

I had another inspiration free day today too, I'm sure it will return (only took a year or so to come back last time lol) I will have a sit at the bench tomorrow and see how I feel

I have bookmarked that site and will be viewing it tomorrow when the wife's out, just for "research" purposes

Okay guys. The time has come to agree on a start date and a time allotment. I have made up these lovely Award Signatures for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, so you will have something to show off for your efforts within our awesome community.







When the time allotment is up I will make a voting thread and we will all choose our favorites. I know some of you have already started and some of you have already finished a figure. If you have already picked and started your figure before the official start that is allowed. It only means you will have plenty of time to finish. All entries need only let Nigel, Pete, or myself know that you have started your thread.

During this GB if you are asked to explain how you achieved an effect, method, or general question about your build you must answer the question. As long as it pertains to your figure. This is also a learning exercise to exchange different techniques and ideas towards figure painting. There are several styles and there are a lot of methods that are used. So do not be afraid to ask someone how they did that awesome or amazing effect. Because this is that one place where the secrets will be revealed and explained to the best of our abilities.

So, Gentlemen, lets get this show started.

Lets pick a date and how long this will run.

-Mike

Okay gentlemen, and Pete.

I'm giving us a start date. November 1st.

We will run this build through the entirety of November and that gives us four weeks to finish our figures.

Remember, if you have already started then you have a jump on it and we should expect to see you across the finish line soon.

Anyone wishing to join for a chance at a custom signature award may join at any time. Just try not to short change yourself time wise.

Official Rules;

1. You must explain your methods if asked.
2. Your entry must be completed by December 1st.
3. Completed entries will be voted by forum members in a polling thread after December 1st.
4. Relax. This for fun.
5. All entries will thank Mr. Bobby Waldron for allowing us this opportunity. [smile]
6. Multiple entries per member are allowed.


Okay gents let's have some fun grilling each other for tips and let the spirit of cooperation continue to grant us wisdom and enlightenment.

Looking forward to following this, the figures I've seen on this site by you guys are awe-inspiring. Thanks for the opportunity to "look and learn" [smile]

Simon.

Thank you Simon. This is the brainchild of Nigel, Pete, and myself. I think Ted seeded the idea.  [smile]

There happen to be a lot of modelers on the site that have their doubts about adding figures to their dioramas. It is a needless fear of course as figures are just like anything else you can paint on a kit, however there are still those who make beautiful kits and doubt that they could paint a realistic looking figure.

So I think I've been voted to be in charge of this project even though I have cohorts lol. We are all here to learn, including myself, and I believe the continued spirit of sharing should be foremost in our community. No more sitting in our isolated rooms hunched over our desks hoping to find another kindred soul to pry new ideas and secrets from.

I've already learned a lot from this site. I want to share and learn more.

So Simon, I hope that perhaps you may decide to join us. If not for this build then perhaps the next. I'm pretty sure there will be a ton of great information coming out of this session and I'm hoping that will bring a lot more members to the table for the next build.

For sure Mike, I have a couple of miniature kits in mind for my (eventual) diorama, fundage is still at a bit of a standstill at the minute but as soon as that is up and going I hope to be joining in wherever I can.

Ok, while I'm at a bit of start point. Is there a consensus as to what brand of paints you guys prefer to brush paint with? Bobby seems to like the Citadel range, what are your guys preference? Also brushes, any preferences?
Cheers in advance.

Simon.

Also, I can't seem to find how to put a signature on my messages? A quick clue there would be appreciated. [smile]

Simon,

I just have to use what I already have [I shot my modeling budget with too many kit purchases a few months back]. I have mostly Tamiya, Vallego, Model Master, and some regular testors enamels. My metal paints are Model master but I won't be using any of them on Satan!

SO far I have not done the brush painting parts, but I did purchase some red sable brushes from the local art shop--they are Richeson Pure Kolinsky [red sable] from Russia.They are pricey! Supposed to be on par with the Windsor Newton brushes but i don't know. I have found the Model Master brushes to be pretty good and they are much cheaper.

For the signature, click on your site name. on the right, click on EDIT. a signature box/window is at the bottom of the edit page.
