  1. After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!". Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks. Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in. Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life. Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies. Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity... Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather. :P Anyways, onto the rolls! I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3.... So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight. Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes. I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge. I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already! Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack. Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all. Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper. Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!) EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in... For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it! (end edit)
  2. I’ll be painting Deathsleet. My rolls are: Thats 16 (or possibly 91), 8, and 6. Cloudy Gray, True Blue, and Brilliant Green. Orders will be placed soon!
  3. Yup, what is says. Challenge accepted! First comes the Dragon, then come the Timestamp. Then the Dice Rolls of Destiny to decide on colours: Cloudy Gray, Earth Brown and Violet Red. Not bad at all. That could have gone so much more ...shall we say garish?. well anyway, as I don't have very many Reaper paints (not available in any store, not to mention continent) near me, I will make do with as similar as I can get from my other paints: and I see my cloudy grey is backwards so you can't see the name on the lable in this shot...so here is the other shot: Vallejo Tierra / Earth should be a good match for Earth Brown according to the paint range colour comparison spreadsheet. Red Violet? The spreadsheet did not really help that much as I don't really have that many of the other ranges there either. I mostly have Army Painter and a lot of older (15 years +) citadel, gamecraft and other such randomness. I hope the Citadel Fire Dragon Crimson (from the earliest round pots with flip top caps -I poured all my old paints in to dropper bottles a couple years ago.) is close enough. Seems like it should be ok based on the colour in the spreadsheet. It is a reddish violet any ways. And really old. Hope it still is useable or else I will have to mix something up. And of course, Ebonwrath was undercoated black ages ago, as I undercoated everything black in those days. As pure black is one of the permitted colours, and the black will for the most part be painted over, I think that should be OK. So the challenge is to paint Ebonwrath with ONLY these three colours, with black and white permitted for mixing. no other colours, no inks or quickshades. This should be different...
  4. I decided that since there's no time limit, that I'd give this fun challenge a go. I didn't notice the screenshot requirement until it was too late. I originally rolled: 10 - Imperial Purple 19 - Pure Black 19 - Pure Black Thankfully doubles get resolved and the second 19 - Pure Black, became: 11 - violet red Which I didn't have, but the handy comparison chart allows me to use Vallejo Game Color 14 - Warlord Purple, which looks very close to the Reaper color. I looked at the P3 Beaten purple, but it's a dark purple, not a reddish purple. Here's the paint dots next to their respective colors: I did not roll a dragon because I need to look and see what I have in my box o' Bones. That will have to wait until tomorrow as I'm working on homework.... Err, supposed to be anyways. *edit* I forgot to add that I'm going to attempt the three star challenge. Thankfully, I think the warlord purple will allow me to highlight the imperial purple quite nicely. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the pure black yet.
  5. Hello everybody! The last WIP I attempted is on hiatus due to um...losing the figure while packing away things to clean the carpet. Dragon selected: Krupixis (spelling) Challenge level: * * * Paints Primary: Palomino Gold Secondary: Olive Green Tertiary: Blush Pink Extras: Pure White and Pure Black "Let's rock this joint!"
