I don't care whether you enter it. I just want to see it. ::D:


I do understand that it wasn't really done as a competition piece. And if you're flying, it would be ... tricky at best to bring that huge thing with, especially if you don't enter it. I really would like to see it some time, though.


So, what I found out about acetone and PVC: "As long as you don't let the acetone touch the PVC, you should be fine." It's possible that might be complex to arrange when stripping. ::D:


I'm trying to convince her to take it to RCon, because it is quite a lovely bit of work under any circumstance - let alone as part of a challenge!  Since her photos for the Ma'al competition are submitted, she is free to modify the beast now to bring.  I suggested she try W&N Brush Cleaner and Restorer, and to test it on scrap Bones first.  If it does not do anything weird to Bones, it should theoretically work to remove paint as a spot treatment.  Simple Green takes much longer to work, but W&N BC&R works fast. 


Also, I note some confusion about the end of Bones 4 and whether or not there was a big beastie.  I think this works out for the best, because I'm going to cap the goblin challenge pieces at 4 with Ma'al.  I am beginning to get legitimately worried about the deleterious health effects of doing them if someone tries to do them well - and at $150, Ma'al is a rather pricey bit of dragon to otherwise expend.

Maybe I should compile all of the info into a single thread in the painting tips forum.

Yes, please!


Congratulations on an amazingly well done paint job! Your version of Ma'al Drakar looks absolutely beautiful!

You kicked some serious butt with this one.:winkthumbs:

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D

      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.
