Don't supposed we could add...

 

Oyez! Oyez! All witnesses, members of the cheering section, and all other lingerers who wander by...

Let it be known from now and henceforth that any who doth proclaim they might be inclined to take up a Goblin 7 Day Challenge are henceforth, from the time of said proclamation, sworn under profound oath to take up said challenge within the course of the next twelve months, barring any medical or financial disability.

Those who fail in delivery shall be teased mercilessly by being called a Pootwaddle.

So it is, and so shall it be!

Huzzah!


Edit: A Pootwaddle is the stankiest of creatures, known to lay a fart so foul that rather than dissipating it hovers on the ground until some hapless creature steps in it, upon which the stank clings to the victim. No soap can remove this vile stank.

 

Because well... ::D:  :devil:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And it's how we roped ub3r into doing it...

Though I can see the appeal of the challenge, and I could make the time to do it, I currently have several restrictions:

 

- I disqualified myself from Kaladrax over two years ago as I already cleaned up the mold lines.

- I only have the dragon from DDS2 as I didn't have the budget for the whole set when Bones 2 was still active.

- I don't own a Khanjira.

fun to watch people do the challenged, but I myself will never do one

 

Namely:

 

- I have no size 0 brushes and if I did get some, I wouldn't want to basically throw it away on one large figure because I don't have many/any

 

- large figures do not come to me often so when they do I want to do a good job on them

 

But good luck to all those that want to do it!

i have no big mnis that qualify, and no size 0 brushes, so i can't =P

 

 

Cheap, sturdy size 0s are actually really easy to come by :ph34r:

 

not at the cheapo store i shop at =P if it's not a couple of bucks per brush then it's outta my pricing range

 

but still, it's fun to watch people do these challenges

For the Maal challenges will everyone who has completed a challenge need to use smaller brushes, or just for the "official" competition?
 

 

For people watching events unfold, remember that this operates on the honor system. We have no way of verifying if the participants are strictly adhering to the tool use rules, and my assumption will be that everyone is. While it might seem amusing to joke that people are not, please be aware that whatever the intent of the joke this will be seriously disruptive to concentration and enjoyment. Please exercise discretion, the event will be stressful.


Remember, you have to add an extra 0 onto your paintbrush for every challenge you've done before! So for buglips, master of no sleep, he must use a 000!

No to both, because that is not one of my rules.  It is and will always be 0, 10mm x 1mm.

 

Please also note that every time somebody decides to be funny on a rules thread it compels me to address it and clarify to avoid confusion, so please don't do it.  Else I'll have to enlist a mod for pruning.

      We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge.
       
      For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/&
       
      The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
       
      Here's the long version of the rules:
       
      You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms.  
       
      On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together!
       
      My general plan is as follows:
      The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate.

      I finally did it. After 3 years of telling myself this summer I will get to Kaladrax, I finally did, during the snow day this week.  Here it is

      In today's episode, we find Navatharr, the mighty Golden Dragon, beset by a host of unsavory sorts.. 

       
       
      The antagonists!

       
       
      The Sorceress : 

      I'm thinking that I need to paint the ball on the top of her staff - it looks a bit plain done in just gold.
       
      The Thief :

      She's the lightest looking of the bunch - but don't let that fool you.. behind that blonde hair and blue eyes lurks the soul of a murderess!  I mean, just look at how callously she's standing on the bones of the other poor fellow!
       
      The Ranger :

      I thought that it'd be fun to do this guy up as a drow
       
      The fighter : 

      the leader of this motley crue, he's a stone cold killer who's not afraid to face down Dragon fire in the pursuit of his evil ... uhh.. pursuits!
       

      I wanted a scorched look on his shield, and thanks to a few folks over in the Painting Tips & Advice section, think it came out pretty decently.
       
      The Cleric :

      As the ranger was going the drow route, this fellow was just screaming to be a duergar.  He'll heal you, but only because doing so furthers his dark plans!
       
       
      I added tiny little magnets to the ruins where the adventurers were going to be placed, although you can't really see these two very well (they're the only ones that I didn't cover over)

       
       
      Also, I had a bit of a mishap with the 5yo attempting to add blood to things - while I applaud her bloodthirsty enthusiasm (BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!), pools of blood aren't really my painting style :)  So all of those areas were successfully painted over.  Finally, she tried her hand at pink/purple/brown in the sealed doorway at the base of the temple.  I first thought about covering it over, but with @Pochi's advice (and her own amazing DDS2 murals), I decided to try for a faded mural look.  My oldest spawn and I were looking at it and thought that the 5yo's artwork already vaguely resembled a dragon with arched wings, so instead of doing my own freehand, I simply covered it with several washes to fade it out.  Unfortunately, I think the shadow of the dragon got lost in the washes, and these pictures really don't do it any justice either.. 

       
      Will good win the day, or will the powers of darkness dampen her golden light forever?  Tune in next time for the thrilling finale!
       
      More of the ruins and dragon can be found in their respective show off threads..
