I started on it 2,5 years ago, and first finished it now. Turns out having a child takes up a LOT of your free time.. Who would have guessed?
It is the Bones version from the first Kickstarter. I had to have it when I saw it, as I think it is the most amazing dragon sculpt I've seen! Comments and critique very welcome!
Actually, I'm starting this tomorrow. I'm starting the thread now so that @buglips*the*goblin has a chance to check in and add my name to the list of bat-crap crazy whackjobs taking this on. And, you know. Pelt somebody with a stanky shoe, 'cause why not.
As this is a Goblin Challenge, it will follow the Challenge Rules, as stated in this thread:
I am .. not sure I know WTF I'm doing, but whatever, I'm a girlblin, I'm not known for sanity, and I pelt people with chili-bombs.
So. Maal's been washed and dry-fitted, and I've said a lot of bad words about all the ratzenfraggin' holes in the wings and ... done exactly nothing about any of it, because I'm not breaking out the knife and greenstuff until tomorrow. But! The PLAN, if plan there can be said to be had, is that tomorrow, day one, will be mostly line-trimming, gap-filling and wing-patching, and possibly linering the base.
After that, painting will proceed apace; and here's a picture of Maal'dryfitted to prove I have all the pieces, and amuse everybody. I couldn't find Sir Forscale, so I used a quarter.
Let the commentating begin! ... don't get nuts, I'd like to be able to start this tomorrow and only be on page one or two. ;p
Well, I just give up with it: my phone's camera is not good enough. It doesn't matter if I improve the light or background, it just can't take proper focused close up photos. I will buy another one soonish.
Meanwhile sorry for the quality.
That beeing said, here I went for the opposite of Rivani. Estra is an old woman, so I opted for a sober palette that says "wise" and "librarian". Again, black and white, better blended than with my unfortunate Sheila. Hints of red, that combine great with black and white. Grey and browns to fit on the "sober" style. I was thinking about an spell effect on his right hand, as it seems it's what the miniature is about to cast one; but I thought the colour will probably break the overall combination.
I'm particularly happy with her face; wrinckled, I don't think I missed the spot.
