I need an excuse to get out of a painting rut, so challenge accepted!
The Dragon: Ebonwrath (because the Bones 3 dragons are not yet in the online store)
Let the randomness begin. The fates have selected:
Primary color: Cloudy Grey (16)
Secondary color: Lemon Yellow (5)
Tertiary color: Orange Brown (4)
Oh my. I'll have to think about this one. With those colors, I'll go all in with the three star challenge. Why not...
This is Ebonwrath as painted for the Random Rainbow Dragon challenge as presented here;
I rolled up;
Primary Colour: Olive Green
Secondary colour: Lemon Yellow
Teriary Colour: Terran Khaki
I went for the 3 star challenge.
The colours reminded me of summer in the Australian bush around my parents farm and the Blue Mountains near where I now live, so I went with a base that tried to create that impression.
Here he is;

Please feel free to leave your comments, constructive critisims, ideas or questions here.
I hope you enjoy looking at this model as I did painting it.
Ok. I have fallen victim to this insane challenge. More than that I am determined to go for the 3 star challenge. Oh dear!
In keeping with the spirit of this whole thing I rolled randomly for the dragon and got Ebonwrath.
As for colours...
Main: Olive Green
Secondary: Lemon Yellow
Tertiary: Terran Khaki
I had a lot of fun with this guy, even though I was initially a bit intimidated by the colors I rolled and am not thrilled with the scale pattern now that I've worked on him...
Combined Show-Off thread
The colors rolled were 1) Orange Brown, 2) Cloudy Grey and 3) Imperial Purple and after a couple of base layers, he started to look too much like a pumpkin to not call him Pumpkin Spice..
It will be noted that I did a completely terrible job on the flocking - only my second attempt at flocking ever and doing it with a headache and lots of kids running around meant that I didn't notice until it was way too late that he's got grass growing all over his feet now! Also, pay no attention to the goldish mush-piles.. again, trying to mold with distractions didn't work out too well (not that I'm particularly adept at that either )
PS's frontmost foot was badly bent even after a boil bath, so I made him stepping on a shield. The shield, sword and bones were donors from the Ghouly Grab Bag since I got a 77242 Skeleton Warrior in my October order.
oh, and I need a better photo-booth than white paper taped in front of my paint stand!
