Guindyloo VS Mashaaf in 5 Days!

Recommended Posts

I have some time off of work with the impending holiday so as always, it's a perfect opportunity to chuck my marbles out the window and take on a paint slopping challenge!
 
If you're not familiar with the Purple Cat Challenge, I highly recommend that you head over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71342-introducing-the-purple-cat-challenge-mashaaf-in-5-days-wip/page-1 where you can see OneBoot establishing the challenge and defeating Mashaaf herself!
 
Who wouldn't want to take on a challenge set forth by a purple kitty?
 
So here are 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. Once the size 0, being the correct number, be reached, then lobbest thy size 0 brush towards thy foe, who being made of Bones, shall be painted.

2) 5 full days (120 consecutive hours) from when the timer starts are all the time that is allowed in this challenge; whether that time is spent working, sleeping, painting or sobbing uncontrollably is up to the participant.

3) Boiling and scrubbing the model to remove casting residue are the only prep tasks allowed prior to the timer being started. Removing mold lines, greenstuffing or otherwise altering the original sculpt in any way beyond factory spec is prohibited.

4) The timer starts with the posting of a picture of Mashaaf and my intended brush(es) to be used and a device bearing my local time. The challenge will therefore end at the same time 5 days (120 consecutive hours) later or whenever I complete the task prior to time running out.

 

 

You guys know how I roll. I'm not even slightly prepared for this (or am I? :rock::;): ) as my life is a slow crawl of constant disasters. My desk is as much of a wreck as my brain. I did, however, actually take Mashaaf out of her little baggie and dry-fit her though! But she needs some serious boiling if she's ever going to stand upright. And I'm still at work and will be for several hours. So my best guess is that I'll probably be officially starting on her tonight somewhere around 7 or 8pm CST!

Excellent!  Looking forward to this... now we will see if Live Photos can be shared on a Forum...

[sounds of mixed-martial Google-Fu]

Hmmm... well... maybe somebody needs to get on that.  Live Photos would be fairly cool in WIPs.  Someday

OK. My phone didn't want to send me the picture and I had to try to make sense of Windows 10 to get to the picture so it took me forever to get it here.

 

But I have begun!

Brown linering is done!

 

post-13371-0-67427100-1479529062_thumb.jpg

 

I spent about an hour on the mold lines. Of course now that she has brown liner all over her, I can totally see all of the ones that I missed but that's how it always goes, right? Oh well.

 

I'm going to take a break for a bit, which might turn into passing out on the couch. We'll see.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received
