  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. Hi, I'm WhiteWulfe, some say I'm an "insane" fox that can't pass the entrance exam, and others say I'm just nuts. Ever since finding out about the 7-Day challenges I've wanted to give them a whirl. Today, this happens. Originally I wanted to start last night, but my desk was a mess, paints were everywhere, and so I listened to rational..... goblins...? o_O who suggested that maybe I should tidy things up first, get some sleep, and THEN actually start. Good thing, because tiredness hit a lot earlier last night than I was expecting! First and foremost, for those not familiar with
  3. I say attempted because of two reasons... First is this is the show off thread, and secondly, no official confirmation yet on the dates since @buglips*the*goblin has been occupied with other things, although a part of me suspects that @OneBoot might vouch. At least on the times WIP Thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83285-whitewulfe-attemps-the-seven-day-goblin-challenge-dragons-dont-share-2014-edition/ This post may or may not be wordy, I haven't decided yet. I'm tired, I'm sore, my eyes burn, but... It. Is. DONE! At least in my eyes. A lot of
  4. So I'm looking at doing one of @buglips*the*goblin's seven day challenges (Dragons Don't Share - 2014 to be precise), and one of the main topics that keeps coming up is brushes, specifically ones I won't mind putting some wear and tear on, or even destroying. For those unfamiliar with such a challenge, here's some more info... Official 7-Day Goblin Challenge Rules Thread Awww, it doesn't automatically do the thing anymore, where it does the nice and neat and tidy box of doom. Anyways. The biggest thing I'm looking for is some brushes that will be legal (si
  5. We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax
  6. In today's episode, we find Navatharr, the mighty Golden Dragon, beset by a host of unsavory sorts.. The antagonists! The Sorceress : I'm thinking that I need to paint the ball on the top of her staff - it looks a bit plain done in just gold. The Thief : She's the lightest looking of the bunch - but don't let that fool you.. behind that blonde hair and blue eyes lurks the soul of a murderess! I mean, just look at how callously she's standing on the bones of the other poor fellow! The Ranger :
  7. So one of my November goals was to work on (or even finish) the DDS 2014 tower ruins .. If you look at the WIP thread, you'll see that it took me a LOOONG time to get this done finally.. I'm not completely satisfied with the way the treasure came out, and learned a lot from applying the sand without painting the base Bonesium first, but over all, I'm fairly happy with it...
  8. I haven't been painting as much as I would like due to some health issues. I have painted a few things and will be posting them on show off as soon as I can get them based. Most stuff I have been painting has been for my campaign based in ancient Egypt. I was getting a little burnt out and have had DDS2 sitting for about a year so I decided I wanted to work on the ruins. I knew I wanted them to fit together but I also wanted to be able to use the individual pieces separately. I made a cork "puzzle" and glued the pieces down. My painting friend suggested making several layers so it wasn't j
  9. Finished this girl up today. My first stab at NMM using the NMM Gold triad - it didn't come out quite like I imagined, but then, it was a LOT of surface area to attempt it on .. Regardless, she was a lot of fun to paint up and even with the botched NMM, she's still a beauty. Also, the camera (the wife's Canon Powershot) made these pictures look sort of greenish - I don't know why.. I don't get this look with the phone camera.. /shrug :) Also, her claws are done in Antique Gold because I thought she should be a flashy lady. Because she's fighting for
  10. Now that I've finally finished up the ruins for DDS2, the next step is to tackle Her Majesty, Nathavarr. Glued and Green-stuffed all but the head and wings, then based in NMM Gold Base. For now, she looks like she fell in a vat of Golden's Mustard, but really, in our story, she's a poor, set-upon Gold Dragon defending her lair (and life) from evil adventurers (who have yet to be made properly Evil-looking).
  11. Hi, here are thje photos of my "Dragons don't share", realized in december 2016. Hope you like it.
  12. Colors are a little off from my lighting, he's more red than orange and not as shiny in person. My light box isn't quite big enough to fit him.
  13. I started painting up DDS2 while I decide on what I want to do with Khanjira. I'm trying to decide which color I want to go with on the wings in the last picture, I like them both.
  14. So, at ReaperCon '16 there were some individual pieces of DDS 2 terrain available for purchase. I didn't hear about it until toward the end of the con, so picking were slim. I picked up this piece of the tower. My plan was to paint it up as more terrain for Frostgrave and any other game I could shoehorn it into. I also used it to test out color schemes for my DDS 2 set as I haven't painted it yet; mostly because I've been too lazy to boil the pieces. I also decided to use this piece to practice airbrushing. I've owned a Badger Krome for a couple of years now, but never did much with i
  15. As those of you who read the acquisitions thread surely recall, I picked up some craft paints a short while back. Plaid has several product lines but I didn't bother with applebarrel. I've heard nothing good about it and it is their cheap paint. The next step up is folk art, which is available off the shelf locally, so I decided to experiment with them.. The idea was to try them out on terrain and see how well they performed. If they work well enough, it's a pretty substantial cost savings over hobby paint (8oz folk art = 0.5oz hobby in $$) . Now I don't actually have a lot of unpainted t
  16. Well, I not only finished my dragon, I got her entered into the ReaperCon painting contest, and earned a bronze. I then went and got her professionally photographed cause I knew I'd never be able to do her justice. She's currently displayed, along with the medal, in the place of honor on my mantle above the fireplace. "Good night, Nathavarr. Good work. I'll most likely dump you in simple green in the morning." I am thinking about repainting the treasure on her base in bronze...
  17. So I recently completed 77381: Dragons Don't Share as a goblin challenge. You can see the process I went through over in my WIP thread (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72361-dragons-dont-share-challenge/). You can see the results here. First up, the Dragon! It's hard to get good pictures of him; the paint I used for his scales is actually fairly high gloss. He isn't quite as monochrome as he looks here, but he is pretty monochrome. You can't see it well here, but he has a bit of a tendency to lean forward. I may need to come up with a more elaborate mounting method to pre
  18. Sooooo.... I did this little thing last week... no big deal, just painted DDS2 in 7 days with nothing larger than a size 0 brush. WIP is here if you missed it: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72422-guindyloo-vs-dds2-in-7-days/ I pulled it out of the pantry to take a few extra pictures......so it's a lot of pictures. And because it's me, the pictures are terrible. I try, I really do, but I'm just extremely incompetent when it comes to taking pictures. First of all, group shots: Then here are some natural daylight shots that I took between my patio door and curtains.
  19. I assume you're all already familiar with the Goblin Challenges, especially since there are 2 other contenders taking on their own challenges right now! Time off from work for me always means it's paint slopping time... I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out of challenges to do. In case you've forgotten the roolz: 1) Thou shalt not use any brush larger than a standard size 0. 0 shall be the number on the brush, and the number on the brush shall be 0. 1 shalt thou not use, neither use thou 2, excepting that thou ensures that it is actually 0/2 on the brush. 5 is right out
  20. ...will be starting this weekend. But first, I had to do a little cleanup. Here's a before/after of mildly tidying up my workspace. I was tempted to post this in Show Off (cleaning is a project!), but that was just a little too cute. Either way, I'll be diving into an ill-advised project soon enough. Probably starting Friday evening. Edit: This challenge was done under Goblin Challenge Roolz, described here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69639-7-day-goblin-challenge-official-rules/?p=1396173 Final result is up at http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72501
  21. Here it is, done for ReaperCon! I'm calling it "A Mother's Wrath" "Sir Aberforth the Argumentive thought this would be easy. He had heard of the terrible dragon that lived in the jungle near the natives' village, and he felt he could rid them of the threat. Imagine his laughter when he found but a baby dragon, and cornered the thing, aiming to slay it. He'll drag its corpse back to the village and show the silly natives, who obviously had never seen a adult dragon, the silliness of their fear. As he lined up for the final blow, he caught movement out of the corner of his eye as a pat
  22. This is continued from my summer thread here. These are my old threads if you want them. there are a few tutorials linked on the last one. Jan-April 2013-14 So, I'm bound and determined to finish this cursedly large dragon! Right, working on the sides from a few different angle: The goal here is to make sure I get enough contrast and also have a gradient from light to dark. The leg: Still in progress... every time I get a few layers down there are a thousand more waiting! The tail: ...and here is the in progress: Still have lots to do but making progress
  23. I owe an extra-special thanks to all the Reaper Forumites who helped win this beastie and allowed me to paint her! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I loved this project. I wanted to paint this resin master sculpt all in blue with an ice and snow theme. Also, I wanted to create what seems like the perfect camouflage for an icy dragon hunting after dark. So the dragon from below is blue-black like the night sky, invisible when she soars overhead, while she is icy and pale on her back to hide in the snow by day. But I couldn't resist carrying the aurora pattern on to the back of the
  24. So, I need to finish the dragon and get it off my desk and onto a shelf somewhere where it will not taunt me. A bit of history- I decided to do a super in-depth WIP since so many nice forumites at Reapercon helped me win it two years ago in the auction. With this post I have officially surpassed 100 in-progress photos!! Yay!!! Here are the old threads if anyone wants them where I did the early step-by-step. May-Aug Sept-Dec This weekend I tackled the last aurora effect on the underside of the wing. No pics, sorry, but it looks just like the other one. I still need to do some ble
  25. I recently picked up the Dragons Don't Share boxed set, and was really taken with the terrain pieces. So I decided to undertake a hefty terrain project. The Bones pieces and slate were glued to a cork sheet, which was then glued to the back of a metal pizza pie plate. The ground was covered with small tallus pebbled, and then with a sand mix. Many different grades of static grass, flock, tufts, wildflowers, climbing ivy and moss covering were used to finish off the base and rubble. Hope you like it.
