  1. Hey! l haven't done a WIP thread in a while now. I know Bones III is the new hotness now, and Mal'drakhar is the shiny that everyone wants to paint. But I got a comission to paint Khanjira, and and one of my own to paint, too: The comission doesn't want to have "dinosaur colors or Godzilla colors" and likes the idea of a blue Khanjira. I'm flipping back and forth on mine; I might go with a red and purple color scheme, or I might do a "Pacific Rim"-inspired dark grey with a blue bioluminescent glow on his eyes, mouth and parts of his armor. I'll mock up some colors after I get one assembled and photographed. I started the comission yesterday, and so far have managed to trim the flash and mold lines from just four parts - and 10 more to go. There's a lot of mold lines on each part, and removing each one potato-peeler style takes a lot of time! (I tend to nibble them away.) At my rate, I estimate about 2-3 evenings left for removing mold lines on just the first one. Oh, and I just know that there'll be the question of why I don't take the 7-day goblin challenge. No, sorry, just no. I'm one of those types that can't stand exposed mold lines or gaps on my finished models, and resolving that alone would disqualify me for doing that before the challenge started, or take up too much of the week to finish on time. And also, I have still a few scraps of sanity left... and want to keep them! Next update when I finish surface cleanup and start fitting the pieces...

    77380: Khanjira

    I painted this a while ago but am just now getting around to taking/posting photos. He was too big to fit in my light box so I had to deal with the less than optimal lighting in the apartment. I'm really happy with how he came out now that he's done. I had about a week where I wanted to throw him in a bath of simple green and start over but I got over that and called him done. I am really really happy with how his eyes came out though.

    Sparrow paints Khanjira

    So I've been painting Khanjira for a long time now. Like for a year-ish now. The last time I picked it up I just wasn't happy with how it was turning out and just put it on the shelf and there it sat. Until now. I've finally picked it back up again, I'm not terribly disappointed in how it's turning out but it's still got a long way to go. I figure by making this WIP thread I will hopefully get it done in a timely manner. And by timely manner I mean by Valentine's Day. No particular reason for the date, it's just a date that I will remember. Anyway, here is my progress so far: Ignore the state of my desk, it's been worse. Also, note to self, stop putting models together before painting them.
  4. I am declaring victory! This is my Khanjira. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my doom. I must master it as I must master my death. Without me my Khanjira is mildly peckish. ... wait, that's something else. Started on Boxing Day, and didn't get a bunch of time to work on it a few of the days, but I managed to grind it out. There's definitely room for improvement, but my goal was to get it to the point where I can put it on the table during a game and be happy about it, and I've achieved that. I do still want to put it on a more rigid base (I'll probably do up a fancy piece of MDF at some point) but that's not required for the goblin challenge and I needed to get this thing off my elfing desk so I can work on something else. Dunno what else to say... Any questions?
  5. Recently (Monday evening) I completed my first 7 day Goblin Challenge, following the guidelines put forth by our resident Goblin Buglips here. I'd booked a week off (Tuesday to Tuesday, for silly work reasons) and figured I'd try doing Khanjira before even considering the soonTM to come 5 Heads in 7 Days. So, with a fist full of Size 0 brushes in hand, I set off. Little did I know that fate would throw just about every delay causing event in the book at me, I managed to complete it with 28 minutes to spare (and was only half an hour late for D&D). You can read all about it over in the WIP. Khanjira is too big for my normal photo setup so I had to improvise.... He was actually pretty fun to paint, and I'll definitely consider doing another challenge at some point.
  6. It's time! (Well, not right now, but a little bit later it will be....you know). I'm starting a week of stay-cation tonight (our on-call schedule is Tuesday to Tuesday. is it a pain for vacations, yes, but it avoids all the Monday holiday switching stuff....) and as my only real plan was to not be at work I thought it was time I got in on the, umm, fun? that is the 7 day Goblin Challenge. My opponent for the week will be Khanjira, the supposed World Breaker (honestly, I dropped him and he barely even cracked the world, hardly a scratch). Here is a candid shot of him relaxing in the hot tub yesterday....doesn't look so tough to me.... Official start time will be sometime this evening, when we get back from the office Christmas tree lighting and fireworks. (That's right, I'm kicking off my 7 day challenge with fireworks!! )

    Hello Fukushima

    So at last years ReaperCon I decided to do something geeky with one of my Khanjiras, Hello Kitty colors. I started off by priming Khanjira with blue liner and the terrain base with grey liner. The base was layered with Dwarven Forge's earth stone, wet drybrushed with Reaper's ruddy brown, drybrushed with Dwarven Forge's cavern stone, and washed with mossy green. Eventually I'll go in and add some barnacles and seaweed. For Khanjira's body, I used two thinned layers of ghost white followed by two thinned layers of 50/50 ghost white and spectral white to make the under coat and finished up with two layers of 66/33 pure white and ghost white for the base cost. The scales and bony protrusions were under coated three layers of thinned dragon red. I wasn't to worried about getting a little of the dragon red on the skin as it'll help get the red/pink reflection later. The next step is to base coat the scales and boney protrusions with punk rocker pink.
  8. If you or someone you know might be crazy, please check out the Official Goblin Challenge thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69639-7-day-goblin-challenge-official-rules It's doctor recommended and tastes great! Four day weekend means it's paint slopping time! In case you've forgotten the roolz and are too lazy to go to the link above, I'll repeat my version of them because I know clicking things is hard. 1) Thou shalt not use any brush larger than a standard size 0. 0 shall be the number on the brush, and the number on the brush shall be 0. 1 shalt thou not use, neither use thou 2, excepting that thou ensures that it is actually 0/2 on the brush. 5 is right out. Once the size 0, being the correct number, be reached, then lobbest thy size 0 brush towards thy foe, who being made of Bones, shall be painted. 2) 7 full days (168 consecutive hours) from when the timer starts are all the time that is allowed in this challenge; whether that time is spent working, sleeping, painting or sobbing uncontrollably is up to the participant. 3) Boiling and scrubbing the model to remove casting residue are the only prep tasks allowed prior to the timer being started. Removing mold lines, greenstuffing or otherwise altering the original sculpt in any way beyond factory spec is prohibited. 4) The timer starts with the posting of a picture of Khanjira and my intended brush(es) to be used and a device bearing my local time. The challenge will therefore end at the same time 7 days (168 consecutive hours) later or whenever I complete the task prior to time running out. Well, because I'm so awesome at life, I have done zero of the allowed prep work. My desk is a mess, with most of my paint bottles spread out all over it instead of in their racks, I've not even completely taken Khanjira out of the packaging, much less dry-fit or scrubbed or boiled him. Oh and I'm at work right now and will be for the next 8 or so hours. This is just one of those times where you know you've got nothin' to lose, but, you know, yolo. So if I've done none of that, then what have I done to prepare myself, you ask? Well, I have thought a lot about the paint scheme. Here are some inspiration pictures: Welcome to the show.
  9. Laaaaaadies and Geeeeeeeeeentlemen!!! Welcome to the Epic 7-day Challenge Khanjira battle: OneBoot vs. Buglips! OneBoot issued the Challenge! Buglips accepted! They will be following the standard rules! (Rules reposted here for clarity) 1. You may use no brushes larger than Size 0. As Size 0 can vary by company and brand, the average bristle dimensions are 10mm long by 1mm wide. When selecting brushes, try to be as close to this guideline as possible. 2. You have 7 full days to complete from your posted start time (including a picture with a time stamp from a phone or computer screen is helpful to establish this) to complete the model. 3. All visible areas must be painted, and all paint must be applied with a regulation brush. 4. No drilling, filing, mold line removal or other prepwork is permitted before start time. The only preparation allowed is to dry fit your pieces to make sure the model is complete, and do any boiling and reshaping necessary to correct warpage and return the model to "factory spec". You may also clean the pieces with soap and water. 5. All pieces as included in the box set at retail must be painted. This includes, for example, the 5 adventurer figures included with Dragons Don't Share 2. The official start time for this competition is 4:00 PM Pacific time on Wednesday the 27th Alrighty, let's get ready to RUUUUUUUUMBLLLLLLLE!! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Speedpainting these two to try and get them done and given to the friend they belong to before we move.
  11. Quietly, I sat, but lurking in my unpainted box something evil stirred. It called to me. Sang me its siren song. I got out my glue.

    Khan-jira, the World Breaker

    SELFIE! I just ate some dwarfs, does my breath stink? Sorry, too close? /hack /hack Sorry, hairball. Should I get this growth checked out? I don't feel so good... maybe dwarfs are not good eat before bed. /hurl Primered black, dry brushed gray, hightlighted white, glazed with brown, green, purple, washed with black, touched up with gray and ivory. And I'm still finding mold lines I missed. Very cool model, though.
