ub3r's unpossiblely unsane! - The 7 day Kaly Challenge (IN PINK)!

Recommended Posts

I don't actually recall anyone saying a model had to be fully /glued/ - feel free to correct me if I am misremembering - merely fully painted. Given Mr. Drax' ridiculous wingspan, and his traveling requirements, it seems reasonable enough to not glue his wings in.

Don't I recall OneBoot's Kaladrax also being dry-fitted on the wings because traveling? Or was that the base .. *does not remember*

 

I think a little spatter of red would be good; give it that bloody-raw look that's so popular with young barbarians these days. ^.~

I was going to suggest a little bit of white streaking, but that might make it look a little too much like bacon, and we all know where that ends. :wow:

Actually, Pinkolich is looking really awesome. May I suggest some red ink in between the boney parts where the "meat" is for some extra gore factor?

I can do that. What do you think about something like Reikland Fleshshade? It's a brownish red and dries kinda shiny too.

 

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sitting at 10 hours in and I'm done with Kaly. Now time to do the base!

 

I did the Reikland Fleshshade first, then added some red ink to it to redden it more and here he is!

How does he look to everyone?

Stopped at about 7pm for the night as my wife got home and we went to see the house and are now out to dinner.

 

I'll be able to finish tomorrow.

Ooo, loving the red for the membranes!!! It really did a nice job adding more visual interest, and helps bring out the details better than all pink was. Super cool! And the base is already looking awesome! I agree with LittleBlu, having more than just PINK on the base was a great idea!

 

Go go go!!! You got this in the bag!  :wow:

You remember correctly; my Kally is not glued onto his base. Buglips can clarify the "assembled but not glued" question, but I believe as long as it's fully assembled at the time of completion, and documented by a photograph as such, it counts. I can totally understand not wanting to glue the wings on; those are the things that will make transport the most difficult.

 

Huzzah!

About the meat,

Are you going for a 'fresh' look, or a more dried out ancient look?

If fresh, I think a bit more red is indicated, of old maybe a brown and or grey?

Bony parts look cool!

Going to do some florescent green or red in the eyes?

Titan male or female?

Wondering if we will see stubble...

 

You got this!

 

Did not see anything in the roolz that says it must be glued together...

But *the*goblin is the final arbiter of that...

I also doubt that it was ever really considered that one of these challenge pieces would ever need to travel...

      I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. 
       
      I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

      For my Broken Gods D&D game, I've painted up all the figures for my group and am now getting around to painting up their mounts and animal companions. 
       
      First off we have Bagheera, the Panther based off artwork in the spoiler. Bagheera is the animal companion of the party's monk/ranger and normally it is a standard medium-sized panther that he can use to fight along side him, but the panther can grow into this large mount when needed.
       
      Next is the Golden Lion, the mount of the party's bard, based on the artwork below:
       
      Next is the Nightmare for the party's warlock, based on the artwork below:
       
      I painted up the standard medium sized panther to use when it is needed. The monk/ranger also gained a (perhaps) temporary follower in "Jim the Brown Bear" which I also decided to paint up for this adventure and future adventures as a companion or just standard bear.
       
      All of these are painted up tabletop to tabletop+ standards. I didn't want to put too much work into them as they are just meant to be on the tabletop and not to be put into any contests.
       

       
      Larger panther and the lion are the lioness and lion from Bones 3. The smaller panther and the brown bear are bones animal companions. The Nightmare is from one of Tre's kickstarters. It has a barbarian that goes on the saddles, which of course I omitted here and I'll either toss the barbarian in the BOGW or put him in the melt bin at ReaperCon now that he's not really needed and I covered the hole in the saddle where he would normally attach.
       
      There's one missing mount, a silver and black fox that I may also paint up for the 4th member of the group. She paints minis too, so I'm thinking I'll give her a wolf figure that looks very foxlike to have her do it herself especially since I have so many other projects I need to finish up on this month.
       
      Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
       
      EDIT!!
       
      Adding more pics of the figures in more close-up shots for each one.

      Decided to have some fun today as I was digging thru my figures pulling out stuff I am going to put in the BOGW. I ran across the hydra and remembered that next weekend I planned on throwing my d&d players up against one. 
       
      3-4 hours later I have a painted up hydra on a scenic base from secret weapon miniatures. Added some water effects for a tiny swampy pond beneath it. 
       
      I’d love to hear your C&C!

      Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.
       
      First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

      I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 
       
      After I'm done with these three:
      I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn
