How do I show my dice roll then?

 

Oooh. I didn't even read that line. I just went and rolled dice haha.

 

I guess it's fine that I'll have to find a way to reroll, my first was a 20! A pure white dragon! I could have made Ruth. :wub: 

 

https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm Seems to be quick way to roll dice. Is... that link okay? It's to a specific part of the site with no links to the rest of it.

Can one of the three roll for me. I forget that we cannot put videos here. And I'm too lazy to link my youtube. :D

 

Dragon = Kryptixs (??) I don't have the other ones. 

3* challenge. <__<

Interesting challenge. I love randomness of this sort.

 

So for colour selection, can we use close approximates if we don't own said colour? For example, I don't own Palomino gold but do have Griffon Tan and Olive skin tones that are pretty close. Or Punk Rock Pink instead of Blush Pink.

 

It may be beside the point as I'll be mostly away from home for the next two months.

 

@Pezler the Polychromatic - thoughts on that? We did put in the alternative colors spreadsheet in case it is needed. Figure the dragons are not Ma'al price, so a FLGS trip for a bottle of paint isn't the end of the world.

I don't see why not.

A good question. Personally I would recommend rerolling, otherwise you're going to have a giant blob of one colour. Unless you want one of us to choose?:devil:

 

I agree. If you get doubles, feel free to reroll.

Whoops. Good point. When I'm off work I'll edit that. Screenshot (online roller) or photo of dice rolls works for me. Or honor code. I shouldn't be worrying about you good folk like I do college students ^_^

 

Liner is fine. Any extra color is fine - just make the rolls the dominant colors in order of 1st, 2nd, 3rd..... then whatever else.

And what about mixing the chosen colours and black/white?

Would that still count as a STAR 3???

 

Given the right colours one could mix a lot from those...

Those should be fine, the Olive Skin is near enough to Palomino Gold, if you can't get the former. And Breast Cancer Awareness Pink is a good substitute for for Blush Pink. The brighter the better!

 

And keep in mind that if you're not sure about rolling the results yourself, I am more than happy to roll some for you with *THUMP*, the Die of Incontrovertible Magnitude.

*squints at the Die of Incontrovertible Magnitude*

 

:huh: Uh, Pez? That's a count-down die, not a properly randomized one.

 

Here's my rolls!

EDIT: Because the print is so small, here's the numbers: 19, 11, 15. So Pure Black, Violet Red and Mint Green.

 

Ooo, my Kryphrixis is going to be pretty! I do wish I'd gotten something other than Pure Black for one of my rolls, though; since I'm going for the THREE STAR CHALLENGE that means I'll only have 4 colors to work with instead of 5. But that's okay, because:

Ooooh! I love these combos! 

 

Remember when I said I was going to wait until my ReaperCon entry was done to do this?

 

... I might just join the hangouts tomorrow and do this instead. :lol:

You roll it, it gives a random result. Good 'nuff.::P:

 

Can't wait to see what comes out of your results!

10, 19, 11 (although really, it was 10, 19, 19, so I rerolled the second 19).  So Imperial Purple, Pure Black, and Violet Red.  I don't have violet red, but do have one of the equivalents according to the chart.

Me neither! :bday:

 

Hrm...I coulda sworn I had Mint Green around somewhere, but all I've found is a sample paint that I named "Minty Green," which is more bluish than greenish, and there's no equivalent color on the chart, so I guess I'll have to order that (my FLGS doesn't stock Reaper paints). Violet Red is one of my go-to paints, though, so no worries there. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

      As usual, the new format includes "hard mode" challenge options!
      
      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The 1st!
      Paint a mini themed around ...The Frozen North!  (Yup, Winter in a Summer month. In honor of:  James Clark Ross, the first European to reach the North Magnetic Pole, June 1st 1831.) Polar Bears, Frostgravers, Seals, Yetis, US Navy SEALS in winter kit, Snow Apes, Winter Foxes, Dire Penguins, Snow Leopards, Tiger Tanks in winter Camo, White Tigers, Frost Giants, Winter Terrain ...are all good. 

      Bonus Challenge: The 2nd!
      Join the Painting Binge next weekend. Hard Mode: knock out the basic 8 during the Binge. Details: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86220-memorial-day-paint-binge-challenge-2019/

      Bonus Challenge: The 3rd!
      The third time pays for all. If there was a Bonus Theme from earlier this year that you wanted to do but missed; go back, find it, and give it a go! Post the theme Rules with the link please.

      Bonus Challenge: The 4th!
      The Fourth was with us earlier in May. Paint up some sort of mini as a Stars Wars character, background extra, droid, or spacecraft. Harder mode: Do some conversion work on the model first. (Add a light saber, swap a sword to a blaster, cobble together a ship from random objects Froggcident-style...)


      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      WiP on this too cute baby dragon from bones 4. One of the reasons for my to back. The kids each pick one, and choose their own coulor. The dragon fly is magnetized, and i'm gonna put more magnetes on some other dragons so the dragon fly can hope from 1 to an other baby dragon.
      ... keep u posted.

      An experiment in color-blending and washes. Wanted to evoke a different kind of flame than we often think of. 

      "Giants and the Genii
      Multiplex of wing and eye
      Whose strong obedience broke the sky
      When Solomon was King."

      This is a truly fantastic sculpt and I love it. A cheerfully cruel expression, like a cat with a mouse. 


       
      Yes, that is a Goetic sigil. Photos taken in natural light during the Golden Hour,  unmodified. Armor is AP Rough Iron, GW Gehenna's Gold, and DecoArt Rich Espresso, with touches of Nihilakh Oxide and Nuln Oil. Skin wash was a mixture of AP Red Tone and some midnight blue wash. Came out a lovely bruise color. 

      And a couple more shots for context and scale.

      "What cause, O Man, would you have to trouble Me with your summons? Great must your need be, or you would not bring such calamities upon the world."


       
      I could probably snazz those swords up a bit, but she's not too bad for tabletop quality!

      Hello all! 
       
      @Echoside_ challenged me to do this! 
       
      I attached the colors that were rolled and a pic of the dragon lined. Sorry for the short post,  but it serves purposes. 
       
      Cheers!
