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!

That'll be a nice dragon!

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!

      If your adventurers ever see Fimbul Frostbite they'll definetely feel the winter coming. The mighty white dragon dracolich rules its frozen wastes with a (rotten) sharp claw and twisted magic!
      This is my rendition to the "zombie dragon" from Reaper Bones IV. Decided for a cold palette to take advantage from the link between death and ice that Game of Thrones so wisely stablished over eight seasons till its apotheosic... ehm. Well, till its peculiar end. 
      If anyone wants to visit my insta gallery I'll be honored ^^ its @albertnyarla

      Here my version of the "Dance of death" from Reaper Bones IV. 
      I'm still very hesitant to show it off because till the last second I was really insecure about the outcome. 
      First of all, the palette: right now I kinda like it, but I'm not 100% sure about 1. the base and 2. the color of the lower dragon. My first idea was to paint it white, and make it reminiscent of a battle between England's white dragon and Wales red dragon. But to paint white is always a challenge and given I'm not that familiar with the material, I decided to go with the other hard color to paint. 
      Now it just depicts a fictional encounter between two forgotten realms dragons: Tchazzar, infamous red wyrm, and Mergandevindasander, rumoured to have lavender eyes. 
      And secondly, I think I'll never fully appreciate bones... I like the fact that it's cheap, but the texture is just not the same and there's something very off on its maleability. It always makes me get tired of painting it and abandon ship without giving as much attention to details as I usually do.
      IMO those two dragons are pretty nice, and if I had to object to something, it will be about their tails, a bit too plain and simple. 
      Any feedback incredibly welcome ^^ 
      And if you have instagram and want to follow my gallery there... even more grateful: it's @albertnyarla

      I've never successfully done lava so I'm attempting it again. Hopefully this little guy will be lava-riffic.
       
      Started with a base coat of Clear Yellow, unthinned.

      Okay I might have a problem when it comes to collecting and painting dragons.  They fascinate me.  This dragon has been produced by many companies, I think Dark Sword holds the rights at this point but it was also produced by RAFM and Ral Partha and probably others as well.  She is a small thing but still fun and relatively simple to paint up.  The dragon back has a very fine scale texture making the wide expanse of a back difficult to display (for her brothers and sisters I will probably incorporate some sort of design) properly. Hope you enjoy
