So hubby and I were curious....  We don't have Pure White, and it will be a bit before I can put another order in for additional paints at Reaper.

 

Any chance Dragon White can be subbed for Pure White?

 

I bet if you didn't tell us, we wouldn't know the difference :poke:

 

The goal is "white" - some sort on untinted white will do. So I wouldn't say Linen or Ghost White, but Pure White, Dragon White, or say Scale 75 Purity White would totally do!

Certainly, there's very little difference between them. The main thing is to have fun! ::D:

Definitely glad to hear, since it's one we have, and hubby has a few plans for various things with white colours.  Myself, I'm going to have to think of a few things, because I don't want my dragon to be too too dark :p

*Necro-Echo magic at work*

Can this challenge still be taken? 

 

Can other dragons be done up? 

 

This could really get me out my painting funk. Whoohoo.

Welcome to the challenge! Kyphriis, Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, and  Stormwing are the dragons that were available for the challenge. @Cyradis might think of others, perhaps.

Challenge is for anyone who wants to do it! For that matter, I have mine still blue-tacked to my work table. Whoops. Heh. 

 

Pretty much any dragon in the $20-30 range is what we were aiming for with this. A Dragony Dragon, not a Wimpy Dragon, but not a Bank Breaking Dragon.

Whelp, gives me a reason to make another order.  Only dragons I have currently are Gearwyrm and the Pathfinder Red. 

 

Shall get on that quick.

The Pathfinder Red dragon is fine, I think. Unless you want to go bigger. That one is only a little bit smaller than the others, right? 

 

Up to you - the goal on this is mostly for funsies.

I used Pathfinder Red as my second one - I feel like he's significantly smaller than my other ones,  but the wing sails are still pretty decently sized..

Zee is better when you are singing the alphabet. Otherwise, Zulu is the best way to indicate that letter! Nato Phonetic Alphabet shall reign supreme! Alpha bravo charlie delta echo foxtrot...

Merriam was a hack that was only trying to sell his books. Even the alphabet song doesn't have original music. http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2012/10/why-do-the-british-pronounce-z-as-zed/

 

It's okay, we won't kick you out just yet. ::):

Good channel! It is one of my go-to Youtube goof-around channels. I admit, Zed is a useful one, specifically because it doesn't get mixed up with Bee, Cee, Dee, etc. But... that's also what Zulu is for, and Zed isn't on airplane tails (neither is Zee).

I spy four potential ones, but all but one would be kinda combo breakers. Gauth will likely fit, unless he's too big and goes in the Bank Breaker category (which I am arbitrarily setting at $40+). The Dragon Turtle is a dragon, but is also a turtle. He'd be kinda weird. The zombie dragon is a dragon, but also a zombie. He'd be really weird (can you imagine a blush pink and moth green zombie dragon?!). Blacksting could do well, but he's a wyvern. He doesn't have the proper four legs. He also has scenery, which would boost cost. The other dragons in B4 are almost certainly Bank Breakers.

You forgot Argent, just a "little" Dragon.

 

Maybe the Chibi Dragons would make a nice challenge?

      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      July and August 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Independence Day! Both Canada and the US celebrate their independence days in July. Keeping it clean - paint a mini that resembles the most absurd stereotype of the country, whether it's a lumberjack riding a moose with a jug of maple syrup, or a fat dude in a scooter with the american flag and a big mac.  Or something from the film Independence Day, that works too.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      August 22nd is National Spumoni day. 3-layered Gelato dish. Paint any mini in a themed pallet around your choice image of said dish.

      Hard Mode Challenge! Eruption
      Also in August is the fabled eruption of Pompeii. A full-size diorama is a but much to ask - but instead theme a mini around trying to escape the eruption (lava flows, flying chunks of rock, etc) particularly utilizing the OSL and an ashen look.
       
      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees.  I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend.  Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out.  Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future.
      Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could.
       

       
       
      Want more? Here's the WIP thread

      I'm painting again after a looong absence.
       


      The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.
