  1. My dragon arrived! Deathsleet for me! The Ebonwrath is for my BF. I rolled a 15, 9, and 3. Ooooh boy. This is going to get funky. Mint green primary. Heather blue secondary. Lava orange miscellaneous. I am going for the base unstarred challenge because this roll is scary and the last dragon I did was like... my 3rd figure ever, over a decade ago unless you count the fairy familiar dragon. Including previous dragon in pictures. Must have been early because it is unlabeled on bottom for number (I labeled soon after beginning to track progress).
  2. 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... Contest Thread Combined Show-Off thread WIP 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 headach
  3. Reaper Bones Beauty Pageant Sept-Oct 2017 The challenge: 1. paint 77413 Margara She was included in the Bones3 Kickstarter Core Set and should also be available wherever Reaper products are sold. Remember that the base is part of the figure and should be painted as well. 2. (optional) Include a short paragraph of fictional backstory for your entrant, beauty pageant style. Be creative and have fun with this. 3. Post your entry (up to two photos) to this thread by midnight CST on October 8, 2017. Anyone can enter at any time before this deadline.
  4. Painting a dragon with random palette of colors was a fun challenge. One of the most fun to paint this year. (tied with Hippo King) Contest Thread Combined Show-Off thread WIP Insomnia started out as a storm dragon, but I chose to go with ocean waves instead. I didn't have a sea dragon, and was having fun with water bases. at 3 weeks of painting it is the second fastest dragon I have finished. Really it just flew by, and I kept making more time to work on him. His name is Insomina because of more than the usual late or middle of the night paintin
  5. So it appears there is a contest going on with a long list of rulz. The roll: But I own none of those paints. In fact, I own none of the paints on the list, so it is substitution time! Can you guess the brand? So raise your hand if you guessed correctly. If you did you win a cookie, provided by the contest organizers. (highly likely their cookies are safe) It is somewhat hard to tell from the swatch, but I think my paint is actually more intense than the Reaper red. The ink might end up being a closer match.

  6. Hello everybody! The last WIP I attempted is on hiatus due to um...losing the figure while packing away things to clean the carpet. Dragon selected: Krupixis (spelling) Challenge level: * * * Paints Primary: Palomino Gold Secondary: Olive Green Tertiary: Blush Pink Extras: Pure White and Pure Black "Let's rock this joint!"
  7. Well... the time is nearly upon me. I'm on my last night of work for the next six days, so it's time to tackle this beastie! Or at least it will be tomorrow, Just setting up the thread and planning my attack. I've painted all the other 'large' things, but this is the first I've seen of the 7-day challenges. I'm actually pretty excited about it. A lot of my normal strategies are thrown out the window because of the rule stipulations and I'm NOT sure I'll be able to get the result I want... I have a plan for the wings, but that may be needed to come back to after the challenge is over... Still
  8. Don't know why I'm so nervous to put this out there. Really it's just for fun and no big deal, but I'd like to enter myself into a goblin challenge starting tomorrow, May 24. Time Tbd. Khanjira is currently still in the box. Tonight I will dry fit, clean, and attempt to fix warping. Tomorrow afternoon I will begin the challenge. Just to be sure: I have a couple packs of round size 10/0, 5/0, and 3/0. Any of those would be allowed, correct? They are within the 10 mm long, but not sure where to measure the 1 mm wide. At the ferrule, just the bristles at the ferr

  10. If anyone wants to run this years contest, please let me know. Categories have been: 40-99mm wide/tall (Reaper only) 100mm+ wide/tall (Reaper only) Diorama Non Reaper models over 40mm wide/tall we only had 4 diorama entries this year, and a DDS2 that should probably have been in there versus the other category.. Given that we are getting so few.. I am questioning if we want to get rid of it, or offer fewer prizes. there was a request to make the non Reaper category open to Busts as well.. thoughts?

  12. Yes, the challenge insanity has gotten me, too. Just not quite as bad....I think. It's also a slightly different variety. I have 50 of these guys: Don't ask me why, I have no idea; I think they've been multiplying in the dark foot locker they were stored in. Anyway, the challenge I have set for myself is this: I will convert 49 of them so that no two are the same. That's right, I'm going to (hopefully) create a small horde of individualized mono-pose plastic goblins. I am going to leave 1 unconverted, for two reasons: 1) I will have an original figure to compare my conve
  13. I am just putting feelers out there to see who would be interested in possibly another Bones 1 or 2 painting activity this summer. I enjoyed the Bones I little people beauty pageant and the Bones 2 beauty pageant with the sea priest. Is that something people might be interested in participating in this summer? We could select a Bones 2 mini for another beauty pageant. Or maybe do some kind of a tiered point-based or category based activity for Bones I if people still have those left and want to knock them out. Open to ideas or whether or not this is something people might be interested in.
  14. Okay! I now have the paints I will require, as well as the superglue and the brushes!! On Tuesday morning I will be starting my own Kaladrax Reborn challenge! The rules I shall be following are the standard. 1: No brushes will be used that are larger than a standard size 0. Also no airbrushing or finger painting is permitted!! 2: I will have seven days from my posted start time to finish the work. This will be established with a photo showing date and time on my computer screen. 3: All parts of the miniature will be fully painted. Again, all paint will be applied using a brush no
  15. For those of you unfamiliar with The Great Kaladrax Painting Challenge, initiated by buglips*the*goblin, here's a link to his thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip Feel free to boggle at the insanity of it for a bit, I'll wait. ... ... ... All done? Okay, so, being not entirely sane myself, I've decided to give it a go. I will be following the same rules buglips followed in his challenge, namely: 1) No using a brush larger than a standard Size 0 (no getting around it by using, say, a si
  16. It's that time of year again. Those of us in the US have a 3 day holiday weekend coming up (May 28-30) and I am challenging you all to join me in a massively multiplayer paint binge! Everyone is welcome to join, even if you can only paint for one day. The object is to finish as many figures as possible. Quantity counts over quality. All manufacturers are fair game, posting of WIPs and finished pieces is strongly encouraged. You may prep and prime figures before hand, in fact I recommend it. Get out all those Bones, primed or half painted figures and get ready to finish them before Bon
  17. Welcome to my 12 hour dragon challenge, loosely based on Professir Buglips original 7 day challenges. Why only 12 hours you might say? Well, there appear to be quite a few of us who have difficulty stitching together two, much less seven, days of consecutive painting sessions. Therefore, I'm trying to pathfind a challenge that fits for the more time deficient among us! If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you need to check out the latest one to accept the challenge, OneBoot's Crazy Too Kaladrax WIP. The goblin's challenge is to paint a large centerpiece figure (Kaladrax,

  20. So, a challenge for all you D&D players out there! I need to get a present for a friend of mine who's starting out as the DM of a new gaming club at a local HS. Some of my other friends are chipping in for Chessex Maps, a Pound-o-Dice, and stuff like that, but I've been given a budget (75$) and told to go forth and buy minis. Now, I don't need PCs - she's going to get those special once the kiddies decide what they want to play as - so I need suggestions for monsters and quanities thereof. What would you suggest from the pre-Bones 2 Bones figures that will allow her to set up a wid

  24. Sorry about the delay folks, had some issues to take care of on the home front , and hadnt had a chance to get this months proof written up. This challenge will be a little longer as a result, but requires a tiny bit more work on your guys part to get full credit for the themed entry achievement. This months challenge will stretch until the end of May, and yes there will be a separate challenge for May. April's challenge is derived from one of my favorite horror authors of all time, H.P. Lovecraft. Your mission should you accept it is to read one of Lovecrafts short stories, tell us about
