I assume you're all already familiar with the Goblin Challenges, especially since there are 2 other contenders taking on their own challenges right now!

 

Time off from work for me always means it's paint slopping time... I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of challenges to do. ::P: In case you've forgotten 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) 7 full days (168 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 DDS2 and my intended brush(es) to be used and a device bearing my local time. The challenge will therefore end at the same time 7 days (168 consecutive hours) later or whenever I complete the task prior to time running out.

 

 

This is going to hurt a lot and I'm not absolutely certain that I'm going to be able to finish in time since I am not in any way, shape or form a speed painter, despite my past challenge victories. I've got the full 7 days at my disposal though and a giant case of energy drinks so I'm going to give it my best and try very hard not to get caught up in spending a billion hours on the adventurers like I would normally do.

 

I'll be starting somewhere around 12-ish hours from now... so I should probably go and unbox DDS2 now. ::P:

The MadnessTM still runs deep in your veins.

 

DDS2 is one of the super-sized ones *AND* it will cut into the New Year's Eve/day events. It really is crazy. And that's regular crazy, not just goblin crazy or xenomorph crazy (if that's a thing).

 

With that... GOOD LUCK! YOU CAN DO IT!

You can do it! 

 

(But block out as much time early as you can. However much of it as you think there is, THERE IS MORE.)

First hour progress. I spent about 30 minutes removing mold lines from the adventurers. Everything else looks pretty good so I'm not going to worry about it.

 

Then I thinned down my brown liner, which I don't usually do, and slopped it all over the adventurers and partially on the dragon, just so I didn't waste the brown liner that was already mixed up.

It's fully my intention to tackle the adventurers in the first 2 days, with other pieces only getting worked on if I need a change of pace.

Whoever's dry is getting painted first.

Go... you crazy person you... go!  

Having just gotten this and really started to look at it... my mind gibbers in fear at the thought of attempting this in one week...

Almost done basecoating this little lady.....I'll call her Trevoress the Sorceress. She's got some rough mold spots, especially on the right (her right) side of her face but overall I'm not too bothered.

      Finished this miniature today for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Part of a LOT of demons. He has more slime on his base then the picture brings out, but he was fun to paint and actually sorta quick due to some airbrush work.

      This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days.
       
      The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon):

      From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale
      (Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.)
       
       
      There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free.
       
      Quick ground rules:
      1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one).
       
      2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol).
       
      3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters.
       
      4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly.
       
      5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier.
       
      Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot.
       
      Alright, now let's get this party started!

      The challenge complete!  I present Kai, the Strawberry Dragon!

      Waiting for my Bones 4 to show up...
      Barnabas is representing a sea dwarf ship captain played by one of my DND players. His trident was forged by Poseidon from the deepest coral; it is harder than adamantine armor.
