Sorry I wasn't being funny, I thought that was a rule.

 

Exactly.  You see the problem.  Someone else was being funny, confusion ensues.  So it wasn't meant specifically for you, just a good opportunity to address it.

Sorry for the off topic talk

 

I don't mind the talk, I just don't want to have to chase down misunderstandings of fake gag rules.  I shudder to think what might happen if somebody took fake for fact and wound up disqualifying themselves in a contest with a real prize on the line.

Actually I just thought someone was poking the scape-goblin with a stick again. 

 

1. Make fantasy rule <*poke*>

2. goblin pops out of his sock horde and responds.

3. goblin makes grumbling noises about his stanky socks getting cold and crawls back in

4. repeat

Buglips' original attempt of seven days could've been a fluke, but now that at least three other Kally-7 challengers stepped up and managed to do exactly the same, often barely so, I got to conclude that the seven day mark is spot on!

 

Now is time to roll some sanity checks.

Starting January 15, 2017 the not-trophy package will no longer include the engraved plaque.  The logistics for the plaques are not working out and are causing many delays.  Any challenges completed by then will still get the plaque.

my dentist tells me plagues are bad, or something like that, so I won't rush out to paint DDS2 just yet.

 

It's all about brushes brushing!!!

I meant plaques. But I think my dentist will agree plagues are bad too. Auttocorrect for the win(?)

      Now that I've completed Domog, high priest of Rovagug, it's time to move on to the lesser threat: the Tarrasque, Herald of Rovagug.
       
      I got Khanjira the world breaker with the Kickstarter ages ago, and dusted off the box recently while working on Domog.  I was saddened to discover the big guy's left leg was missing.  Fortunately, Reaper is awesome and they shipped me a replacement leg!  With a nice bottle of paint to boot. :-)

      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

      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 things aren't as well done as I'd like, but that's what happens when you lose the equivalent of almost two full days to surprise contractors.  Thankfully I had terrain to work on while they took up most of that time!

      Just what is the 7-Day Goblin Challenge?  Well, I summarize it as follows: Stupidly large mini, comically small brush.  Right now, it's four different minis you can choose from, you can only use up to a size 0 brush, aaaaand you have all of seven days to finish it.  That's it.  No airbrushes, no fancy paper towel tricks, no smearing paint with your fingers (as that's a "brush" that's bigger than size 0!), no direct application of paint, no aerosol cans... You get the idea. ^_^;;;
       
      Start time: October 27th, at 09:05 MST/MDT (aka -07:00 GMT)

      Getting all of this to fit in my mock lighting setup was an absolute pain, doubly so since I had to steal hubby's painting light to try and get even lighting across things. o_O
       

      ^Starting setup, with time displayed
       

      ^Ending setup, with time displayed.  At this point, I technically had 7 hours and 3 minutes left in my seven days, and by the time I'm done writing this it'll probably be a full hour later (something about editing down over forty pictures, and that's AFTER I filtered redundant pics out of the equation o_O)
       
      In order to not make this an absolute pain to scroll through, I'll showcase key pictures, with additional detail pics being hidden behind spoiler tags.
       

      ^Obviously the main attraction is first.
       
      Additional dragon pictures:
       
      Terrain details:
       
       

      First hero is apparently the dwarf cleric...  At least with the order I took pics!

      ^The sorceress~

      ^The thief/rogue/sneaky one!

      The... Ranger/archer guy!
       
      Additional pics:
       

      ^And last, but not least...  Sir Purple of Shiny, as more or less named by OneBoot...  Well, inspired by due to purple and how shiny his armour was for quite some time...
       
      Additional pics!
       
       
      Now, comes the slightly... I dunno, philisophical part of it all.  Would I do things differently next time?  Most definitely.  I'd prefer to give my heroes more time, and also make sure I have brushes that I trust well enough to do eyes.  I had to pull out my 000 Reaper brush to try the eyes....  I also wouldn't wait until after 1am  in the final hours of the challenge to do said eyes either.  I'd also not recommend losing a good chunk of time to surprise contractors either, or at least keep painting as best one can - although that first day of surprise contractors, uhm....  Yeah, anything other than priming would have been impossible while they were doing work, the entire building was vibrating.
       
      Would I recommend this kind of thing to others?  Sure, why not...  If you're willing to do a reasonable amount of planning ahead of time.  I'd also strongly recommend having time off while you do this, AND not being the person who cooks.  Assigning cooking duties to someone else (or, y'know, having a freezer/fridge full of ready to make meals) would probably also be rather handy.  If you're in a relationship, or living with others (be they roommates, or parents, or whatever), DEFINITELY make sure to talk it over with them.  I'm lucky, I'm married to an enabler, and by that he's the main reason I was able to do the challenge.  That and he was quite happy to work on relic quests in FF XIV:ARR while I painted 
       
      Oh, and make sure you've actually GOT groceries to cook with if you are going to be the cook!  Don't have to run out a few times during said challenge, DOUBLY SO if you happen to have to WALK everywhere when you do said errands.  No, not even to go and get your package of big stompy robots, you silly fox!
       
       
       
      I went into this with a rather basic plan...  Colours picked out for the heroes (but apparently only their capes/cloaks), and a basic colour pattern idea on the dragon.  I'd recommend not winging it like I did, because it brings up some rather interesting (and annoying!) problems as you go, like how on earth you're going to make it work, and blend it all together.
       
      Will I give another one a shot?  We shall see.  Obviously there's recovering from this one, but most importantly is this - hubby would have to say yes again 
       
      ...I'm going to go get sleep now!
