The Modern Fantasy Painting Party
« on: May 02, 2020, 09:32:17 AM »
Welcome to the LAF Modern Fantasy Painting Party. This follows on from the Old School Fantasy Painting Party. The idea of the painting clubs is for LAF members to populate a club with 100 newly painted miniatures, one miniature at a time, following the theme in question.

Fantasy is a hugely popular miniatures genre and the Old School Fantasy Painting Party filled up quickly, which is why we split the club into pre-2000 'Old School' figures and 2000 and beyond figures. This will be the 2000 and beyond figure painting party.

We recognise that there may be a grey area where people aren't entirely sure which side of 2000 a figure belongs to, but as long as people are posting in the spirit of the party, we accept that the odd figure may not technically be in the right place!

The usual Painting Club rules apply:

- Any LAF member can take part.
- You take part by posting in this thread, a picture of a single newly painted miniature that fits the theme.
- You can only post one entry within a 24-hour period.
- You can contribute as many miniatures as you like while the painting club is running. But you can’t post more than one per day.
- The subject of your picture must be a single, fully painted and based miniature.
- It can be whatever scale you like up to 40mm.
- It can be a figure on foot, a mounted figure, or a piece of equipment – a cannon or siege piece, for example.
- You can show your miniature on its own, or in a scenic setting.
- The picture can be a single shot of the miniature, or a composite of different views.
- Photoshop manipulation of the image (except for colour / brightness / contrast correction) is not allowed.
- Your picture should be a maximum size of 1000px x 1000px
- The miniature should be newly-painted for the club and not have been previously shown here or elsewhere on the internet.

If participants submit old stuff, that submission will be disqualified and removed.
If you submit more than one miniature in any one day, or multiple miniatures within a picture, that submission will be disqualified and removed.

You can upload the image using the LAF attachment function, or upload it to an image hosting service and link to here.

When you post a picture, please check the number of the entry before yours and then number your entry accordingly.

It would be great if you could title your entry too and perhaps provide some information about the figure such as the manufacturer and / or sculptor if known.

Given the current 'stay at home' situation the club will stay open until 200 contributions have been posted. Then the club is complete.

When you post a picture, you become a member of the club and may add this splendid painting party badge - designed by Westphalia Chris, to your forum signature line.

Chris has also added 100px and 50px square versions (the latter linked above).

No. 1 Stone Elemental



Technically it's a 'Large Earth Elemental' from Reaper Miniatures' Bones range sculpted by Kevin Williams. Bones can get bad press, but it's a lovely figure and a pleasure to paint.

I really like the grass and extra texture on that, good idea.

Yes, he is, isn't he. Loads of detail on there, you can't see it all but he has a knife in his boot and a grappling hook on the end of his rope.
