  1. Link to original challenge: I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379 So I'm painting that. Die roll, 13, 18, 2. Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red. Good colors. I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. Baby needs a bath first.
  2. So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing. My rolls. Main 20 9039 Pure White Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling. Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two. The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints. And here he is ready for the paint. I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.
  3. Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis. must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors... 15, ah what could that mean? I'll look later. Let's roll another. seven! Good. Nicely spaced numbers. Will look it up in a minute. For the third roll... Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different... Finally! oof! One! Critical miss. Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table. Let's see what this means: 15: mint green 7: olive green 1: fire red huh. Whadaya know. Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
  4. Congratulations, you have found the thread for posting your completed Random Rainbow Dragon!! The original quest can be seen here: Please provide a link to your Show Off Thread (which should include the model # you chose in its tags), a link to the Work in Progress thread, a brief statement of what colors you rolled, a statement of what dragon you painted (for search purposes), and photos of your lovely dragon. The Mods may make grumpy faces and remove chatter-posts from this thread. For chatter, please go to the original quest thread. You receive +5000 experience, +3 to skill Crafting (Mini Painting), and over 9000 Internet Points (redeemable whenever, wherever, for bragging rights on the internet) for completing this quest. Thank you for your participation. May our flock of dragons fly together forever in the pixels of this thread!
  5. This is the first true dragon I've ever tackled. Hordes minis don't count I went with Deathsleet for his rearing pose and... 01: Fire Red 09: Heather Blue 20: Pure White ...... It's a 4th of July dragon! No, no, bad Neb. Not painting a dragon covered in stars. Too weird. I can... wait... Eeeeeeheheheheheee... I'll see how these paints mix when I get them. Because even with a 3-star challenge I can blend through purple. And now the waiting begins...
  6. My dragon arrived! Deathsleet for me! The Ebonwrath is for my BF. I rolled a 15, 9, and 3. Ooooh boy. This is going to get funky. Mint green primary. Heather blue secondary. Lava orange miscellaneous. I am going for the base unstarred challenge because this roll is scary and the last dragon I did was like... my 3rd figure ever, over a decade ago unless you count the fairy familiar dragon. Including previous dragon in pictures. Must have been early because it is unlabeled on bottom for number (I labeled soon after beginning to track progress). So yeah. The mint and the blue aren't so bad. The orange?! Uh oh!! My dragon is going to need some work on the base to put the plastic in place better. Thinking of connecting the foot bases instead of two spots on the ground. I have the blue, will buy the orange and green on Saturday. Scheme? I got some time to ponder that!
  7. Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest! This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver. The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors! The Rules: Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent. Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102). You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations. Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure. The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure. The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure. You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xl-x9eW3bLw5eqDeNUG2JUwn2EZwn34TDKfNIg5uul4/edit#gid=5 Number Reaper # Color Name Color Description 1 9004 Fire Red Bright red 2 9134 Clotted Red Dull red 3 9218 Lava Orange Volcanic orange 4 9201 Orange Brown Dull orange 5 9009 Lemon Yellow Bright yellow 6 9227 Brilliant green Bright green 7 9035 Olive Green Olive dull green 8 9017 True Blue Bright blue 9 9231 Heather Blue Dull light blue 10 9023 Imperial Purple Deep purple 11 9026 Violet Red A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet. 12 9262 Blush Pink Very pink 13 9029 Earth Brown Generic brown 14 9122 Terran Khaki Light brown 15 9263 Mint Green Bright pastel green 16 9089 Cloudy Grey Generic grey 17 9077 Marine Teal Teal, blueish 18 9074 Palomino Gold Earthy gold yellow 19 9037 Pure Black Super black. Critical threat! 20 9039 Pure White Super white. Critical threat! You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon. You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth. The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge! Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge! Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts! There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame. Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest. Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

  8. Zombie vs. Skellyman

    So, this may seem to be an odd question, and it probably is. In terms of standard fantasy RPGs like D&D, AD&D, Pathfinder, and OSR what really differentiates a zombie from a skeleton in terms of undeath? Is it just that it has skin where a skeleton does not. So if a zombie loses all of its skin does it then become a skeleton? A variant zombie?
  9. Ral Partha Warrior 1985

    Hope it's okay to post this just for appreciation's sake. I do have some actual Reaper minis and Bones I want to post, but this is what I photographed first. This old Ral Partha figure from the 80's was one of my test characters when I started using the MSP's I got earlier this year. This is all new to me except I painted horribly with (gasp) Testors on this guy and all my old figures during the 90s. Hey, we was poor. You can see how I wanted to immediately strip the paint off this guy and go at it with your paints. I learned a lot reading the boards. I had some Bob Ross painting under my belt along with the figures from my old D&D days. I painted the entire line from the Talisman board game first, so I got better with shadowing and whatnot as I went along. I did nothing like this back in the 90's when I painted my original characters though. These paints are awesome! Thank you for making an old hobby even better. My son and I will enjoy painting these together for quite awhile. You might find it funny that I made my base out of a piece of clear plastic cut from a package that may have had mini hooks or hangers, then attached what was really a small base for the figure with hot glue. No, it gets better. Those rocks? Big globs o' glue! lol You could probably make quite a lot from it, like whips and things you might want flexible. This base is all hardened though. I used some kitchen items for basing as some suggested here and gave him a highlander touch. This was always one of my favorites with the dragonscale and sword, so it just begged for some MSP love. I'll post the more relevent figures here soon.
  10. Hello. I paint a lot of different things so I guess I will try to keep one thread running rather than make a thread for each thing or genre. Lately I have been working on Heroclix mods/repaints and Sedition Wars. Also the Bones-wolf in the other thread. Anything could show up, though, as I have been collecting minis for...a long time. Sedition Wars Like these minis. They have had mixed reviews since they started being received, but I think McVey did a good job with these models. Have been slowly picking away at the box. Went with yellow for the Samaritans and your standard zombie palette for the Strain. Akosha was the character I was most excited to paint from the core game. I wanted to paint her up in light colors since I have yet to see her that way, and as a contrast to her nature as a wetwork killer assassin type. Here she is with her active camo version as well. And a close up of the glowing eyes on the camo'd one. Since she's a cyborg, and all. Heroclix I have recently been bitten by the mod bug for Heroclix. It isn't a game that one would normally consider for rewarding painting, but there are some really talented modders doing inspiring work out there and some really horrid models that need replacing with something more aesthetically acceptable. Hulk. A Heroscape figure repainted and mounted on the base of a little-tiny-not-at-all-imposing sculpt from the Incredible Hulk set. Superman repainted Kingdom Come style and put on a sculpted explosion to replace the hideous TabApp sculpt. For those unfamiliar with Heroclix, the TabApp sculpts are an abomination whose only value is that they have inspired many to try modding their figures. Captain America. Another TabApp repaint/swap with some new wings sculpted on the temples. Wolverine TabApp. Repaint and some sculpting for the hair. A classic look from right after Fall of the Mutants. Thanos. I love Thanos. A Heroscape repaint and sculpted gems for the Infinity Gauntlet on the original dial from the first set. Sorry for the pic dump. Further updates will be smaller. This is just the more interesting stuff I've done recently. I have just finished up some more Strain, the Bones Minotaur, and a Zoat. Will put up pics when they are taken. In the pipe: more Sedition Wars, Alkemy kitties, more Heroclix, maybe some GW. Thanks for looking.
  11. Random Projects

    For my last few projects, I haven't stepped back and taken the time to snap a few pics while I'm working, and frankly, it's leading to sloppier results. While this definitely isn't the case for everyone, I'm finding that a combination of taking those breaks to really study your work, and documenting what you've done for your own future reference are both rather helpful tools as I learn about this hobby. Thus, it seems appropriate to start an ongoing project log.
