Ulfheathen Questions Sanity Ma'al drakar in 7 Days

Recommended Posts

I have decided to do this as my first attempt at one of the goblin challenges.This is also my first time doing a WIP thread. I am hoping I can get Ma'al drakar done around work, though I do have a three day weekend which should help.

 

My starting time.

Off to sling some paint.

 

Official Rules:

Quote

1.  You may use no brushes larger than Size 0.  As Size 0 can vary by company and brand, the average bristle  dimensions are 10mm long by 1mm wide.  When selecting brushes, try to be as close to this guideline as possible. 

 

2.  You have 7 full days to complete from your posted start time (including a picture with a time stamp from a phone or computer screen is helpful to establish this) to complete the model.

 

3.  All visible areas must be painted, and all paint must be applied with a regulation brush.

 

4.  No drilling, filing, mold line removal or other preparation work is permitted before start time.  The only preparation allowed is to dry fit your pieces to make sure the model is complete, and do any boiling and reshaping necessary to correct warping and return the model to "factory spec".   You may also clean the pieces with soap and water.

 

5.  All pieces as included in the box set at retail must be painted.  This includes, for example, the 5 adventurer figures included with Dragons Don't Share 2. (Note that this means you cannot remove any parts) 

 

6.  You must declare in your thread title that you are doing a 7-day challenge (ex: Ma'al drakar in 7 Days).  This way your thread gets noticed as a challenge so we can watch the fun and make arrangements for the prize if you succeed.

 

7. After declaration of completion in your WIP thread, you have 2 hours to submit your official entry photos in the Official Entries thread (this is to allow time for setting up of photo taking area). Up to 5 pictures per entry may be submitted. Link to entry thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76081-maal-drakar-7-day-challenge-entries-no-chatter/

I'll be doing mine around work as well, it should be a challenge. Just keep your eye on the prize, mind the rules and don't try to do too much. Good luck! :bday:

After work yesterday I base coated the body and back of the wings with dragon red.

Followed by using frosty blue as a base coat for the white head and neck.

Reptilian green was then used on the green head and neck.

Here is where I was when I started Sunday. The black head and neck were base coated in nightmare black. While on the blue head I used void blue. The inside of the wings i started with tanned leather but that was going on to thin and taking to many coats to get good coverage so I switched to chestnut gold.

On Sunday I then dry brushed solid white on the white head, cats-eye green on the green head, tropical blue on the blue head, dark elf skin on the black head, and the red head and main body received phoenix red. The insides of the wings were done with buckskin pale.

The taking and posting the pictures has helped me find missed spots for example on my picture of the green neck above there was a small spot of bare bones white that had been missed in both the liner stage and base coating that has now been fixed.

Congratulations on your first goblin challenge!  In addition to possibly being sore, you may also find that going back to normal painting with normal brushes feels like a relief! 

 

Here's your fresh, new Heroic Fancy Badge:

Due to life stuff, I completely missed your epic battle! He came out looking great!!! I like the base particularly, it really looks like redstone! :D

 

Congratulations on finishing your first Goblin Challenge, and welcome to the Terminally Crazy Painters club! :bday:

 

Huzzah!
