likewise I think a PAL covering difficult colours alone would be interesting: PAL yellow, say.

I really like the idea of promoting this place as we appear to be far more comfortable with a diverse membership base than a great many other places I have visited online for this hobby.


Yup, definitely, I'd be on board with that.

Also freehand one would be great - I REALLY want to work on freehand so it would be great motivation!

sounds like a worthy idea to me

How about one for "Believable Female Miniatures". Minis wouldn't necessarily have to come from BSG but at the very least follow Annie's guidelines.

Great idea - I know this has pushed me a bit to get stuff out there, and it's nice seeing what other people have done too. Great variety in the more open cats' and good to see peoples different takes on a set subject :)

Community-A-Long Projects - Masterlist

Post by mcfonz » Wed Dec 10, 2014 5:10 pm

The first ever Platypus community project was born out of "the shed". We were talking about a loss of motivation to paint our beloved miniatures - often referred to as painting mojo. So myself and Blackfly decided, that as we both had the same miniature in our painting ques, we'd set a deadline and try and get them done.

For those that have not seen these before, the entire point of the "a-longs" is to provide a deadline to work to and like minded hobbyists to help enthuse ourselves back into some painting (or terrain building) form. It's not really about the best painted miniatures or terrain although it does help to see even great painters suffer blocks at times. It also gives each-other opportunities to ask how we are achieving certain techniques or how we feel about tackling certain types of model etc.

This thread will be updated each time a new project rears its head
