  1. Okay, so now that multiple people are doing 7-day challenges, here's the present iteration of rules and guidelines. Please note that these challenges are fan-run and not officially endorsed by or affiliated with Reaper Miniatures. Reaper may, at their sole discretion, offer a prize when such challenges overlap with contests, but for the most part these are just for kicks and maybe some forum fame. The Basics: 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
  2. When I got my Bones III Obsidian Crypt I had a little idea. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/crypt/latest/77637 I put Kaladrax ( now Discontinued) on it. She made it her throne! I also included some pieces of the Bones III Graveyard Set, and a few other pieces I had laying around. One statue is broken because Kaladrax swung her tail when she landed. I made some roses with the basing stuff @knarthex had send me a while ago. Also my first real attempt at marble. I made red marble and white/yellow marble for the Crypt.
  3. I finally did it. After 3 years of telling myself this summer I will get to Kaladrax, I finally did, during the snow day this week. Here it is
  4. I was happily scrounging through my mountain of unpainted minis when I started to combine some stuff. Anyway. THIS is going to happen now. It will take time so be patient ( I know you're not, but I needed to say it!) I will need a big piece of MDF, and then start thinking about adding the rest of most of the Graveyard set and other stuff to this. Feel free to steal or be inspired. I have tried this with Nethymaul but she needs more conversion to fit on the roof , mainly her tail.. And come on! Kaladrax has the right imposing look f
  5. Well I have finally gone and done it! I managed to build up my courage and paint Kaladrax! This was a very long session of multiple colors to make the bones just so (I didn't want white with just some quick wash). There is at least four different colors on the bones starting with Vampire Shadow then a black wash followed by Ghoul Skin and the dry brushes of Bathalian Chitin and Graveyard bone followed by some light touches of pure white on the bone edges. No this was not done with a size 0 brush or in seven days... those forumites are seriously NUTS! A
  6. A couple of multibases for Kings of War (one horde and one troop), including a more practical use for big K (he's just too big for wargaming with). Lots of shots. I had originally only intended to paint up the horde, but found I was running out of room on the base for the original number of minis I wanted to paint, so I added a few more and made the troop to go with it. Thanks for looking!
  7. As the title says, two of my dear friends chipped in to buy Kaladrax for me for my birthday this year, and in preparation for the Bones 3 KS delivery, I'm trying to get my painting game sorted out again. Interestingly, his body and limbs and tail were all nice and solid, but his head and tail tip were incredibly rubbery and soft, and quite shiny. Annoyingly, both have also reacted to the spray I used (Army Painter) to prime, whereas the rest of him did not. They're just sort of dimly sticky and tend to pick up fluff like crazy. However, I'm hoping that as they get properly covered in acryl
  8. That's right, an unknown with maybe 3 painted minis to his name is going to attempt the blasphemy of following in the footsteps of buglips*the*goblin and OneBoot! As a refresher, here's a link to the original challenge: http://forum.reaperm...ps-is-crazy-wip I will be following the same rules buglips followed in his challenge (plus some Christmas bagpipes the whole way because how is that not distracting?): 1) Only using a standard Size 0 brush since that was all he had. 2) I will work on Kaladrax for 168 consecutive hours (7 days) 3) The only prep time I've done is to wash and boil
  9. This figure was done as part of the Reaper Forums 7-Day Goblin Challenge. The rules were simple 7 Days and no brush larger than a 0. All prep included in the 7 days. I got it done in 14 hours flat within 5 days. I painted the "statue" face to be a real face, I envision it as a trapped Titan. Today is day 6 and here are the final pics! VOTE FOR HIS FATE IN THE POLL ABOVE!!
  10. 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
  11. If you're not familiar by now with the Goblin Challenge, then please go to Buglips' original thread where he first slayed Kaladrax: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip Then you're definitely going to want to see where OneBoot rose to the occasion and slayed the beast as well: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68762-oneboot-is-crazy-too-kaladrax-in-7-days-wip/page-1 Well, as First Lady-thing and Buglips' other different favourite, I feel that it's my duty to take up the challenge as well - besides, I need to know fo
  12. Yep, it is time. The players are getting awfully close to the point in my game where Kaly will be necessary. Minor spoilers for Paizo's Wrath of the Righteous adventure path: So general color scheme for an undead silver dragon: Warm, dirty bone colors for the bones, blues for the squishy bits on the body, blue/silver for the wing membranes, dirty, scorched, broken stones for the base. The roolz: Added link to official rules: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69639-7-day-goblin-challenge-official-rules/#entry1396460 1. Brushes should be size 0 or no bigger than
  13. Right. So, I'm not good at 'work in progress', but I opened my mouth somewhere, and I figure I should make good. Or so. I'm still learning the quirks of Reaper's forums, so .. um. Forgive my blunders, as I.. well. Blunder through. ^^; A little background. I started working on this last year, or so, and got interrupted by moving. Kaladrax went into a shoe box, and I sort of left him to languish there while I worked on more important things, like getting the house in order and the like. I fished him out a week or so ago, and... he looked a lot like this, with more shredded paper sticking to hi
  14. After a solid week of hard-fought battle, detailed in the WIP thread, I am pleased to present to you... KALADRAX REBORN! All of my notes and thoughts, as well as what paint colors were used where, are detailed in the WIP thread linked above. EDIT: I would be remiss if I didn't include pictures of the Not-Trophy, which I just received! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. This is my first post in the Reaper forum.Thought I might start with my take on kaladrax. I've never tried to paint anything this big before but I could not resist when I saw it. I bought a bunch of minis(most of the first kickstarter really) from one of my sons friends and there he was in the box. Anyway, I would welcome any C&C or suggestions from anyone. I've been painting for a while but I still have lots of room to improve.
  16. So I've been working on this guy pretty much all day, and I didn't do the crazy goblin thing using only a teeny tiny brush... And I still have so much to do... At this point it's all dirty bone on the bones, and valiejo's red leather (2/3) walnut brown (1/3) on the 'fleshy' bits.
  17. Finally he's done! Finished! "On the coast of the vast sea there once stood a mighty kingdom, its walls of white marble shining in the gleaming light of the sun that would rise over the sea every morning to bathe its pearly walls. Great, colorful mosaics decorated every flat surface and fabulous ornate carvings were etched wherever possible But it was not to last...for one day, with the rising of the sun, there came a great wave. A leviathan of the sea rose from the raging froth and breakers, a horrendous skeleton! It was encrusted as if it had once been part of the sea floor, and this
  18. Okay, so I'm probably going to go either this afternoon or tomorrow and pick up a wooden oval base and cork [to be sea rocks on the base] to put Coraldrax on. I had a few questions, as I've never constructed a cork base...is hot glue okay to use? Should I use a different glue to hold it together? What do you recommend to cut it? Xacto knife? Figured I should ask this before going to pick up supplies haha Coraldrax: Main thread with more pictures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/54577-coraldrax-sea-kaladrax/
  19. I was playing with filters and this happened. So: You just found this picture in the attic. Tell me the story of what happened and why your grandfather burned the clock.
  20. Here's my Kaladrax. I wanted her to be a blue dragon with a fondness for cold mountain tops. Fill in you're own story for the treasure chest and giant skulls.
  21. Greetings. I finally gathered up the courage to post one of my minis. Hope I am doing this right and hope you like it. I started painting about two years ago with the first Bones Kickstarter. I would really value any feedback that you have so I can continue to develop my craft. Thanks. My CMON page: http://www.coolminiornot.com/artist/Jewelego
  22. Here is my showoff of my finished Kaladrax. My take on Kaladrax was to have it guarding treasure, and lots of it, as well as to make use of one of the LED Alpha Kits I got from Powered Play Gaming's last Kickstarter. Because Kaladrax is Bones, it made the task of adding the lighting kit easier (a lot easier) than if it was metal; also, the empty cavity in Kaladrax's chest/belly, as well as the recess on the underside of the base itself, made it suitable for housing the light kit components. The switch and battery connector are housed under the base, with the PC board and LEDs housed in t
  23. Yesterday evening I decided to take the plunge and start work on my Kaladrax model. Last year I participated in Powered Play Gaming's Kickstarter for their light kits and I knew I wanted to use one of them on Kaladrax. I spent Friday night and most of Saturday putting the two together. My first step was to remove mold lines so I won't have to worry about them later. Then came the careful process of planning out how I would install the light kit on Kaladrax for best effect. I knew I wanted to make use of both the base and Kaladrax's belly to keep the kit components. So, the first major

  25. I finished up Kaladrax a couple weeks ago. He should be arriving at his new home in Arizona tomorrow. :D Hope you like him. And the ever popular size comparison shot!
