Lead Apocalypse - PA painting club
« on: January 01, 2014, 03:33:16 AM »
A new dawn, a new year, a new painting club!



Following on from the Ancients Painting Club, the Pulp Painting Club, the Medieval Painting Order and the Old West Painting Posse, it’s now the turn of the PA Board:  welcome to the LEAD APOCALYPSE.

The LEAD APOCALYPSE will work much like its predecessors: all LAFers are invited to join by painting an eligible miniature and posting it in the club gallery.  So paint and enter just one eligible miniature and you become a member of the club.  

Can I paint and submit more than one miniature?  Of course you can!  But you can only post one miniature a day (though your image can be a composite from several different angles, etc.).  As there’s no rush to finish, please enter with freshly painted minis, not photos of old PJs.  

The club will be open for 99 submissions, so when the 99th slot is filled with the image of the 99th mini, the club will close.  And why 99?  From the apocalyptic anthem “99 Red Balloons” by Nena (1983), of course.

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
Every one a red balloon
Now it's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city

A slight change of emphasis from other painting clubs: rather than being open to all aspects of the PA world, in tune with the lyrics this time round the subject matter is restricted to mankind.  More specifically, to qualify the PA miniature must be of a single PA human (or an obvious derivative thereof).  We’ll accept any of the following:

  • Survivor
  • Scavenger
  • Stalker
  • Emergency Services Operative
  • Medical
  • Militia
  • Military
  • Containment Operative
  • Hazmat Operative
  • Infected
  • Zombie
  • Mutant (but of obviously human form)

Any scale is acceptable.

If absolutely necessary, you can include connected vehicles, monsters, robots etc. in your image but the submission’s intent and focus must still be of and on the single human (or human derivative) mini (for example, a vehicle driver).

Please note that all minis must also be in a finished state, including basing, etc., albeit with one exception: for minis to be based in groups, it’s fine to submit them one by one without a finished base, though a concluding picture of the final result would be very welcome.

To make a submission, add a post to the bottom of this thread, being sure to number your entry and adding your image in the normal way.  I will then copy the image into the Gallery and subsequently revise the image address in your post.  This way we will ensure that all images reside in the Gallery in the correct order.  (Method revised 01-01-14)

As the club proceeds along its journey, I shall maintain a list of members.

And what do members get?  Well aside from the shared camaraderie, the sense of achievement and a reduced lead pile..... they get a badge.  Not a real badge (what, you thought we had a budget?!) but a virtual badge to tack onto your LAF signature line.  

Please note that you may only add the badge if your name is ‘on the list’ (for which see below).

To add the badge, just copy and paste the following code into your signature, in your profile:

This code:
Code: [Select]
[img width=50 height=50]http://leadadventureforum.com/gallery/16/2031_01_01_14_3_06_57.JPG[/img]
Will look like this:


The LEAD APOCALYPSE will end when the 99th miniature is posted.  There’s no rush though, we’ll get there when we do.  

So the emergency news broadcast has ended, the klaxons are sounding and rockets shriek overhead.   Muster your paints and brushes, prepare your minis, it’s time to start the LEAD APOCALYPSE.

To kick off the club, my first submission to the LEAD APOCALYPSE is one of my own minis, an assembly from the miniatureMOJO 'multipart zombie rager pack'.

He's in the style of a recently infected from the French movie 'Mutants'.

Anpu: That fella is really well painted, with the shirt only just topping the jeans for realism.

I think that I may just have a couple of things that I can paint up for this, too.

Excellent. Perfect timing as PA has been on my mind to revisit lately so a great excuse to paint something. Great first entries guys. Hope I make it back home from my parents in time to enter.

But I haven't finished painting Old West figures yet!  :D

I'm sure I can squeeze a PA figure in; maybe one of those lovely SSS ones!

Nice one Raxxus.  Is he your own sculpt?

I'll add stalker to the list, so there's no doubt

Cool Robh.  8)

Quite ironic given that this started on New Year (Old Father Time, etc)
