Congratulations to the winners of Challenge 1, Loup_Garouis and Rob_Jedi!

Your options are:
Your least used colour (Suggested by Loup_Garouis)

OR

Wow, I have a choice! It's green, white, or black.
Is it coincidence that I really don't like painting any of these?

:lol: I was thinking of Jamie when I chose 'least used colour'.

@Gohkm - I'd go for green, black and white are harder to paint, but easier to place on a mini...

I already know mine... orange. :evil: My usual paint range (P3) does have a few oranges but nothing subtle, nothing that doesn't scream in your face, there is a nice range of browns, some with orangey hues. It's like purple in that it's a colour that doesn't register for most tabletop games, therefor tabletop game paint ranges are lacking in variety for those colours.

My hope is that this challenge forces me to play around with my paints to mix a bearable orange...

Green?

That will be tough for me. I don't think I have ever successfully matched green to any other colour.

Edit:
I got my colours blocked out. Now to get to work serious.

I am painting a chibi for this with lots of orange and yellow. The two colors I use the least. :)

It ain't that any more, Kara. That was for the underpaint. I screwed up, though, and lost the yellows for a warm green. I'll post more pics when I get more work done on it.

That's the idea, Jason ;)

You guys had two rounds without Mark or I entering the fray. I need some motivation as well to get things done (the move REALLY sapped my motivation to paint) so I can get back on track with the multitude of projects I'd like to complete.
