I have some time off of work with the impending holiday so as always, it's a perfect opportunity to chuck my marbles out the window and take on a paint slopping challenge!
 
If you're not familiar with the Purple Cat Challenge, I highly recommend that you head over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71342-introducing-the-purple-cat-challenge-mashaaf-in-5-days-wip/page-1 where you can see OneBoot establishing the challenge and defeating Mashaaf herself!
 
Who wouldn't want to take on a challenge set forth by a purple kitty?
 
So here are the roolz:

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) 5 full days (120 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 Mashaaf and my intended brush(es) to be used and a device bearing my local time. The challenge will therefore end at the same time 5 days (120 consecutive hours) later or whenever I complete the task prior to time running out.

 

 

You guys know how I roll. I'm not even slightly prepared for this (or am I? :rock::;): ) as my life is a slow crawl of constant disasters. My desk is as much of a wreck as my brain. I did, however, actually take Mashaaf out of her little baggie and dry-fit her though! But she needs some serious boiling if she's ever going to stand upright. And I'm still at work and will be for several hours. So my best guess is that I'll probably be officially starting on her tonight somewhere around 7 or 8pm CST!

Excellent!  Looking forward to this... now we will see if Live Photos can be shared on a Forum...

[sounds of mixed-martial Google-Fu]

Hmmm... well... maybe somebody needs to get on that.  Live Photos would be fairly cool in WIPs.  Someday

OK. My phone didn't want to send me the picture and I had to try to make sense of Windows 10 to get to the picture so it took me forever to get it here.

 

But I have begun!

Brown linering is done!

 

post-13371-0-67427100-1479529062_thumb.jpg

 

I spent about an hour on the mold lines. Of course now that she has brown liner all over her, I can totally see all of the ones that I missed but that's how it always goes, right? Oh well.

 

I'm going to take a break for a bit, which might turn into passing out on the couch. We'll see.

Since removing mold lines is optional in this challenge, you're ahead of the game.  

 

Do you have a palette picked out?

      This one is not my work, but my wife's first rpg mini ever. She put a huge amount of work in and is really proud of her.
       
      The shine is because the day it was finished, my dullcoat decided to be a berk and refused to actually be matte.

      Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long.
       
      So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"? 
      I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead.
      I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv".
       
      Anyway...
      I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018.
      I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings.
      The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female).
      I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes. 
      Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green).
       
      Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard.
      I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty).
      Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front.
       
      Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values.
      The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class.
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      The bugbears that came in Bones 3 (the 4 identical ones) all had really floppy maces. Last night I decided to do something about that. One got a plastic ax from the weapons sprues, while the other is getting a spear based on a bamboo skewer. I'll be adding a proper spear to the tip of the skewer made out of greenstuff, but I need to make it first.

      There are some minis that are absolutely brilliant in Bones. This is not one of them. But it's a mini that works for a fellow players for our Curse of Strahd campaign, so...
       
      First problem, the staff was really bent out of shape. Impressive since it's connected to both his hand and the cloak. A quick boil and then ice bath to care of that. 
       
      Then there were three mold lines. Unfortunately extensive on the outstretched arm and on the smooth cloak. 

      Once those were taken care of, I glued him to a base, splashed on the brown liner and then began to block in colors.

      Afterburn Grey, peacock green, tanned shadow, and dessert stone were the primary colors I used to start with.

       
      That was last week, and it was enough to get the okay from my player. So tonight, I worked on him some more. Added Rosy flesh, nut brown, some black lining, and Marigold for the hair.
      I think I'm going to wash the hair with something a little more orange red, then bring up the color more with the blond triad. Not sure what to do with the leather bandoleer, but I'm thinking maybe a red leather?

      Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums.
      I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts.
       
      I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet.
      This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.
