ophy's Kaladrax Reborn in One Week! WIP

Recommended Posts

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 Kally

4) This post's timestamp marks my beginning and the time I should hit next week for my ending

 

All paints will be from the Reaper Kickstarter collections as that's all I have!

 

Hopefully I won't crash and burn or disappoint! Should be entertaining for you though watching me squirm and realize that badness I've signed up for. Should have finished putting sealer on my shoji screens instead this week...

 

Here goes a week nothing!

Desk with paint and a base I cut in the garage. Home Depot plywood is cheap as all get out here but it's mine ;-)

 

And of course, the ever famous Walnut Brown I'm lucky to have two of (1.5 of...)

::o:  :bday: You are a brave soul (as well as insane, welcome to the club!), and I commend and salute you!!!! My inbox is open if you have any questions, need advice, or need to sob wildly for a bit. :)

 

Speaking of advice, if you haven't started painting yet, I would advise you NOT start with Walnut Brown! I've found it has adhesion problems when used as a base coat! So if you don't have any Brown Liner, I would recommend starting with a different color. Best of luck!

 

Welcome to OneBoot Camp! I believe in you! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

      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-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/&
       
      The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0.
       
      Here's the long version of the rules:
       
      You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms.  
       
      On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together!
       
      My general plan is as follows:
      The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate.

      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 size 0 brush meant for house painting, for example)
      2) I will work on Kaladrax for no more than 168 consecutive hours (7 full days)
      3) The only prep time allowed before the timer starts is boiling and cleaning to remove casting residue. Removing (or not) mold lines is part of the challenge!
      4) When I begin, I will post a picture of Kaladrax with my phone displaying the date and time (I don't get the newspaper)
       
      ...That's it, really. Pretty simple. I will endeavor to make semi-regular updates, but when I get deep into PaintingLand, I can lose track of time. I will, however, be very good about taking awful WIP pictures as I go, then at least doing a batch picture post each day. I've timed this so Mr. Boot is gone at a work conference about half of the 7 days, so I will have a little more free time than usual.
       
      So! Feel free to come along for the ride. I can't promise to be on here super often (or maybe I will be, who knows), but I can promise that the trip will at least be entertaining.
       
      If you'd rather just skip to the end, here's my official completion post with pictures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68762-oneboot-is-crazy-too-kaladrax-in-7-days-wip/&do=findComment&comment=1371410

      Note: Unless otherwise specified, all of the paints used are Reaper brand paints.
       
      Huzzah!

      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
