  1. 77580: Ma'al Drakar (pic heavy)

    This is painfully gorgeous work. I spent around a fifth of the time you estimate you put in when I painted my Ma'al Drakar, and I couldn't have gone any further on it before I went mad. This is amazing work, and I congratulate you on how terrific this turned out.

    The base has a 2" diameter.

    Ok, now I'm sad I didn't get this group in Bones 3. Gorgeous work on the while, but that face is amazing.
  4. T'Raukzul, Great Wyrm Red Dragon & Treasure Hoard (Really Picture Heavy)

    Thanks very much, everyone. I love the chance to do something really creative on these big miniatures. Most of the smaller figures I paint just can't really support this sort of base.
  5. Rising Sun River Dragon

    Thanks for the video. I've been using this link when working with fire, especially on this one. I can see where a more intense red might be a good idea.

    I guess it's a bad time to point out that I've already started painting mine...
  7. Rising Sun River Dragon

    So, I'm not gonna lie. At least half the reason I backed the Rising Sun kickstarter last year was simply to get my hands on this miniature. It was gorgeous, and I've been itching to paint up an Oriental lung dragon. Back in the heady days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition, I got into RPGs, and the Monster Manual portrayed the Gold Dragons as the serpentine, Oriental dragon types, and I have always felt a strong level of appreciation for that aesthetic specifically for the gold dragon. I got the KS about two weeks ago, have already played it twice with friends, and having finished my massive T'Raukzul, I decided to go ahead and paint the monsters from the Rising Sun core game. I knocked it out in 2 days. Enjoy, and I'm happy to hear about where I could improve.

    One of my friends looked right at the statue and mused that she was clearly a petrified adventurer.
  9. T'Raukzul, Great Wyrm Red Dragon & Treasure Hoard (Really Picture Heavy)

    Thanks. I appreciate it. I probably spent more time on getting the base put together from bits I had lying around than painting it. I also probably spent more money on the base than on the dragon miniature itself. They're already dreading it, like being Gestalt Mythic Pathfinder characters with elite Stat arrays isn't enough. Thanks very much. Appreciate it. I love how dragons look when I'm done, but painting them is so tedious. I had fun putting together all the bits, though I did notice several repeating details used in the resin treasure and pewter pieces. I honestly would have liked an even larger coin hoard, but I want sure how to pull it off without it becoming even more uneven.

  11. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79164-trakzul-as-red-dragon-and-treasure-hoard/ I picked up T'Raukzul to be my colossal Great Wyrm Red dragon, and spent a lot of time putting together the pieces for his base. I used the resin treasure hoard from Reaper (though they never seem to have it in stock, so I had to get it from a third party seller) and the pewter treasure piles in the parts referenced above. I also used a Bones 3 vampire warrior as a marble statue, some bits and pieces from the weapons sprues (including a sword in the stone), a random elephant necklace I had lying around, and aquarium terrain. The WIP thread shows a lot of the building blocks being put together. I also mounted a thread of LED lights into the aquarium terrain and did some minor work trying to make it glow when I turned the thing on. Despite my best efforts to seal up the gaps, some light leaks through, but it sort of works as magma veins. The photos of the lights on are harder to get, as they get drowned out by too much other lighting. Overall, it took me about 5 days of work, off and on. I tried to get some variety in the treasure hoard, painted up a vase to resemble a Ming vase, tried to have lots of bits and pieces scattered around. I'm pretty satisfied with the results, though. It's a pity I probably won't have too many encounters where I'd be able to use him, but I look forward to putting my players' characters in jeopardy at least once.

    It's funny - I did the archer as a dark elf when I painted mine up, too...
  13. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I generally think that they're not going to be doing any further "power ups." I'm happy to be proven wrong, of course.
  14. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Maybe by "outdated" he means he won't have need for the minis by then? I know that there are some minis I've backed that would become less useful after a campaign I was running would end.
  15. T'Rakzul as Red Dragon and Treasure Hoard

    Yeah, I get to paint at work. It's one of the few things that keeps me sane(-ish). I'm sad that I didn't get more pictures of the treasure pile before I assembled the whole thing. The dragon casts a big shadow. Hope to get pictures for a show off thread soon.
