Maledrakh vs The 3 Star Random Rainbow Dragon Challenge!

10 posts in this topic

Yup, what is says. Challenge accepted!

 

First comes the Dragon, then come the Timestamp.

Then the Dice Rolls of Destiny to decide on colours:

Cloudy Gray, Earth Brown and Violet Red. Not bad at all. That could have gone so much more ...shall we say garish?. 

 

well anyway, as I don't have very many Reaper paints (not available in any store, not to mention continent) near me, I will make do with as similar as I can get from my other paints:

and I see my cloudy grey is backwards so you can't see the name on the lable in this shot...so here is the other shot:

Vallejo Tierra / Earth should be a good match for Earth Brown according to the paint range colour comparison spreadsheet.

 

Red Violet? The spreadsheet did not really help that much as I don't really have that many of the other ranges there either. I mostly have Army Painter and a lot of older (15 years +) citadel, gamecraft and other such randomness.

I hope the Citadel Fire Dragon Crimson (from the earliest round pots with flip top caps -I poured all my old paints in to dropper bottles a couple years ago.) is close enough. Seems like it should be ok based on the colour in the spreadsheet. It is a reddish violet any ways. And really old. Hope it still is useable or else I will have to mix something up.

 

And of course, Ebonwrath was undercoated black ages ago, as I undercoated everything black in those days.

As pure black is one of the permitted colours, and the black will for the most part be painted over, I think that should be OK.

 

So the challenge is to paint Ebonwrath with ONLY these three colours, with black and white permitted for mixing. no other colours, no inks or quickshades. This should be different...

Awesome!!!

 

I got Violet Read as a third colour.

From the look of it, your citadel paint matches.

Good luck!    I got violet red as well and am going to have to use either P3 beaten purple or Vallejo warlord purple. 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing your Ebonwrath come together.

I keep reading this as 'violent red', and then wondering why it isn't a bloodier shade, or possibly more neon.. *headshake*

It's a good colour, though; I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes.

and I just saw I have made a little mistake in my head; the primary colour is violet red, not cloudy grey (I thought VR was the tertiary colour -this little mental hiccup is probably because of the order they are presented on the dice roller app with the last one rolled on top, so I read them from top to bottom. 

 

The proper order is of course, bottom to top.

 

So I will need to undercoat the red bits in white or else the red will never show up in 50 coats. Those old citadel red-ishes have terrible coverage.

throwing the base colours on to see what will stick:

I decided to simply use the secondary and tertiary colours underneath the primary fire dragon crimson (red violet) so the colour actually will show up. The old citadel fire dragon crimson has really weak coverage.

Most of what is grey now will be crimson in the end.

      One of the other players in my group had me paint these guys up, Woody Stumpwimple and Balto Burrowell. The other players always wanted really muted (y'know, edgelord/masculine) colors so kept them pretty simple. Have already painted up Balto twice now (once for myself, 2nd time for a different player) so might say no more commissions for Balto although he's fairly easy to paint at least.

      Rounding out my egyptian themed minis I painted up these two avatars of sokar that I have. They were fun but challenging with all the detail. The bases were really fun to do. I made little pieces of temple floor with cork board then put a thin layer of milliput over them and used these textured rollers from Green Stuff World that was an egyptian themed roller. I've used Basius prior for stamping stuff and was surprised how well the rollers turned out and will be getting more of them in different themes eventually for sure. Anyways, thanks for reading!

      Been painting up my egyptian themed minis. Rebased these guys on some temple looking bases from Dragon Forge that I painted to look more like sandstone. They were fun although the detail on their gold was challenging. Thanks for reading!

      Painted the duplicate of this guy a while ago and huz needed a 2nd one for an encounter we had so I painted him up pretty similarly. Nothing exciting, thanks for reading!
