It's time for yet another bonechilling show-off, as I torture your eyeballs with the fresh horrors that have crawled off my worktable.  You ready?  Hold on to your butts!   First, a Reaper Anhurian:

Technically Takhisis is redone, not finished.  I wound up having to do a complete strip and clean back to original factory spec and starting again from scratch.  Hence:       Because this time ar

Literally, yes.  The first secret to Tak came doing the dragon from DDS2, where I realized I was overthinking the tans and underutilizing the properties of Coat D'arms to remain smooth even under abus

WHAATTTTTTTT how did you finish her so fast?!

 

Because this time around Takhisis got done in under 2 weeks.

I like the dretch, those models are really how I visualize them, and I love using them in campaigns. 

The dragon queen is great too.  I think your challenges doing large dragons in a single week has really improved your quality at speed.

Literally, yes.  The first secret to Tak came doing the dragon from DDS2, where I realized I was overthinking the tans and underutilizing the properties of Coat D'arms to remain smooth even under abuse.  The second secret came while making my attack plan for Maal Drakkar and selecting a colour strategy.  With both of those figured out it was really just a matter of sitting down and doing it.

 

Yoda calls it "Do or do not".  I call it "Don't think about nothin cuz thinktime is done". 

 

The dretch are all done in old pro paint Troll Flesh and Olive.  All the variation came from the ratio between them and whether I used yellow or very light grey for the highlight mix.  Shows how much play you can get out of just 4 colours.

      Oh, look a cavern full of valuable crystals. Hm, a tight fit. I am going to take off all my armour so I can crawl in there...

      I think tentacles are all the more horrid when they are fleshy.
       

      This would be a Roper for D&D, in case that was not obvious. A stalagmite-lookalike ambush predator that waits for the unwary to pass by, coiled tentacles at the ready to spring out and drag the victium into its hungry maw. Dungeon delvers beware.

      As every space-cadet knows, life exists just about everywhere it can. Our spiral arm is just teeming with sentient species, Space Monsters, and things in between.

      These silicious stalagmen, the Slishans of Titan, are probably in-between. They're from Hydra's Retro Raygun series, and their grumpy expressions and rugose crusts are delightful. 

      Meet Gak and Yurk: 


      And their colleague, Vork. Wait! Vork's got a gun! How did it get a gun? IS it actually a gun? Does it know how to use it--and if so, will Vork be a benevolent leader? 



      Last but certainly not least, Old Grandcestor One-Tusk. I got a Roper in one of those WotC random boxes, and then never used it for a year. So I got some Green Stuff and put lips, tusks, a tongue, and an extra pair of eyes on there. 

      What great spacebastards they are!

      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!
