Grey liner on the base and the heads & legs glued to Ma'al. 5981250aa65f5_day1basecoat.JPG.f221ad5837d68c6bfa6525b264c13fd3.JPG

I think I needed to scrub the recessed areas a bit better but overall the paint is going on well.

Welcome to the madness! :bday: 

 

Good progress so far! :D Will you be fully assembling before painting, or only partially? Also, do you have a color scheme figured out, or are you winging it?

 

I'm excited to see how yours turns out! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I haven't quite decided on the assembly. So far I can get to everything. I am afraid that if I put the other necks on it might get hard to hold, but I will see tomorrow. I sort of have a paint scheme. I want to change the black to a purple and the white to yellow so it is closer to the color spectrum. I am not sure I can do the yellow though - it will likely be white shaded with yellow.

Done for the night. I dry brushed the bases with Bones Mountain Stone, Highland Moss, Redstone, and Stone Grey. 59814686af63a_day1drybrushshortbasefront.JPG.eb3bc3833740fcb259130458179b38a1.JPG5981468718eaa_day1drybrushtallbaseback.JPG.86164cd7e6452e31ed918b0ca075e7df.JPG598146876596d_day1drybrushtallbasefront.JPG.a5b894b53c970c29eb697105e55704ab.JPG

This is not how my painting table normally looks. I had to clean out the room for my sister's visit. I have confidence it will soon return to cluttered chaos. It is a six foot table so I am still able to slide everything out of the frame.

I would recommend for the purple that you undercoat in a blue (liner pref), it will help to keep the purple looking purple and can be used as a base shadow color. 

 

For the yellow, I would recommend an orange basecoat if you want a deep yellow or a flesh/bone that leans towards yellow for a brighter yellow. If you don't basecoat in a higher pigment color, the yellow will take several layers to read.... especially over the liner priming.

      No, I'm not neutering a 5 headed dragon, I'm fixing the sloppiness that occurred on Ma'al Drakar due to the time crunch during my 7 day challenge. 
      First things first:



       
      Those aren't spots I missed, those are spots that I just spent the last few hours scraping with an x-acto to remove the mold lines that I'd missed. 
      Yes, it was absolutely as heartbreaking to do as you think it was. 
       
      I thought someone might find some use in seeing how I'm going about reworking things in my attempt to bring this beastie to Reapercon. 
      So the destruction's done, next step, patching things up and continuing working on the mold lines I couldn't scrape off.

      Okay folks, not folks, and whatever else you care to be or not be.
       
      Here we go. I am going to attempt the challenge I half-jokingly laid before the Goblin Lunar Emperor when Ma'al Drakar was first introduced to us. Five Heads in Five Days. The Goal, to paint the entire sculpt, including base and terrain piece in under 120 consecutive hours. That is a full five days, using nothing larger than a size 0 brush to apply paint to the figure. The Official rules give a full week of seven days, but I, being completely insane, have decided to attempt to shave two days off that, in honor of the dragons five headed stature. I honestly do not know if it is possible for me to do, and retain any sense of sanity. So, come along for the ride, at best, we get to see a feat of daring do conquered, at worst, you get to watch my mind degrade even farther. For you the viewer, I would call that a win/win.

      So just a little thing that I finished on Monday. 
      WIP thread is here if you missed it: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76415-guindyloo-vs-maal-drakar-in-7-days/&page=1
       
      These are just some of the pictures that I took after I finished when I was half dead. If you want to see something specific, let me know and I can take some more. 
      Most likely, I will be working on this some more post challenge, so I wanted to get a show off up before I change too much....if that's a thing that I do.
