I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue!
Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own.
Those two things resulted in this:
I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange.
I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them.
And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk:
For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to the Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip .
For this Challenge, I will be painting up Ma'al Drakar in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
The rules are posted below:
I will be starting my Challenge at 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on August 2nd 2017 (link here).
EDIT: If you want to skip all of the talky stuff, here's the link to my completion picture.
Let the insanity begin!!!
Update: Many thanks to the mods for their patience with this thread. Future marathon-paint show offs will be handled differently. The 30 days are now done, and I managed to finish at least 5 figures for all of them.
After 3 kickstarters I have a HUGE backlog of unpainted Bones minis, so I've set myself a goal of doing 5 minis a day, speed paint, table top standard. Here are the minis for my first three days...
Days 4 and 5
Days 6 and 7
Days 8, 9, & 10
Days 11 & 12
Days 13, 14, & 15
Days 26, 27, & 28
Days 29 & 30
Any marathon show-offs in the future should be done as either as a group post when the marathon is done, or with a seperate show-off thread for each week. I did not realize when I started this thread that editing the main post made more work for the mods.
I apologize again for causing the mods extra work.
Thank you to everyone who encouraged me through this insanity.
Here is another of my Imperial Assault figures.
IG-88. I followed the Sorastro guide, which involved drybrushing, washes, drybrushing, etc. 4 or 5 cycles.
Then painting on some forced highlights, then a blue wash on one side and a red one on the other.
This was fast, and a little sloppy. But fast.
To break up your F5's for the Bones IV Kickstarter...
Allow me to present another installment of my Imperial Assault work.
I have been following the suggestions from the Sorastro Youtube Guides, but with Reaper Paints.
Gideon Argus is a field general.
It took a few tries to get a skin tone I was happy with, but I am pleased now.
Not too sold on the dust effect on the jacket, but it is what it is.
