I chose to paint Kyphryxes (still can't spell it).  Rolled the colors mint green, olive green, and fire red.  Replaced mint green with alien goo.  So this was painted only with the following five colors (and red and green liner):

 

Alien Goo

Olive Green

Fire Red

Solid Black

Pure White

 

and here are the results:

WIP is here. Kinda petered out at the end.

and yes, it is pretty bright in person.  Hope my next foray into random colors is a little less stimulating.

Done.  I'm ready for my next quest! ::D:

 

Okay, here is the quest: 

 

Paint a dashing hero or heroine to encounter your dragon (to befriend or vanquish). 

 

The colors used for the character's garments must be opposite on the color wheel from that of the dragon. So I guess.... friggin' bright red, maroon, grass green, with black and white. You may use whatever skin tones and hair colors you'd like.

that looks wonderful! 

I lover the bright colors and feathery motife on the wings.  I haven't seen wings broken up into cells like this before, and may steal the idea.  

I really think you came out better than my similar take on Blightfang the many-eyed.  

 

You seem a little down on the design by the end of your WIP, but this is marvelous.

      Painted this guy in an aquatic theme.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      This is such a beautiful sculpt! I spent a lot of time just looking at it, thinking. I did not really achieve my vision, but done is done. This small dragon is applealing enough I may do another some day when I have more time to devote and hopefully more skill. Trying for a tropical look, stated with parrot colors, but that didn't work - and this was where I landed!

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂
