2023 Bartertown Painting Contest

Post by 3eland »

Here's the new painting challenge!

Every Bartertowner and staff members may participate in the challenge. I've used the spoiler tag to keep this post as clean as I can.

For the new guys, it's pretty simple. I'll keep track of the points in the first post but please let me know the total points you've painted in each post.

Only models mostly painted after January 1st 2023 can be submitted in the challenge. To keep things more balanced and to prevent cases where members hold off from submitting points until the very end of the year, we will set a maximum amount of points allowed to be submitted in the month of November and December to no more than 200 per month (you can still submit more, but any points over 200 will not be added to your total in November and December).

Officially done January and no paint! Hope everyone is finding some hobby time. I've been pushing off starting my Sons of Behemut army. Mostly because it scares the crap out of me painting 5 of them up, but also because I'm a liiiiitle bit lazy.

How's everyone else's painting table?

The nice thing about the living points is we can discuss and adapt!

This is what I would consider each for points. Let's discuss and once we agree, I can update the section with the model names for use later!

Hooch Hauler 120 mm - 20-25
Carnivian 50mm - I'd consider this a small monster - 10
Tentacle maw 50mm - small monster - 10
3 tentacles 40mm - either infantry for 2 each, or elite for 3 each

I think the hooch hauler would be more akin the imperial knight points, its huge and it had tons of models ON the model to paint up

That's fair!

I haven't seen one in person. Left Hordes back when PP ruined themselves. I'll let anyone else comment their opinions as well.

No one seems to argue, so why don't we call it a "Super Large Monster" worth 50?

So total points would be: 79?

Finally finished models from last year. 3 CDMD monsters/enemies and 7 undead minions and leader from MD2.
I started them before I started the great Cthulhu figure. Finished yesterday.
no points.

But here is why I finished them, so I could have my paint handles and painting space open.

All of these minis are from a board game called Lobotomy 2. It's a dungeon crawl, but every character is trying to escape the mental hospital they are in. Everyone thinks they are someone else. It's a blast.
1st is The Huntsmaster. Most games he's just the timekeeper, but in at least 1 scenario, he's the main adversary.

hunstmaster 2.jpg
dreadnaught for scale.
So, is it a small monster or large character? not sure on the points.
