    10021, Viridius the green dragon

    Awesome! Fantastic work all round.
  2. I started constructing my T'Raukzul about 9 months ago, The only structural work I did was in pinning the areas where the wings meet the body, I also filled any large gaps with green stuff. Other than painting her wings, I have not worked on her since. Looking at her today, I can report that her legs and stance are fine. Her right wing isn't however. Whereas before it stretched upwards higher than the left wing, it now curves from the "hand" to the two first long "fingers" to the same height as the left wing. It's not unattractive but it has definately wilted a bit!

    Thanks! I was aiming for an ancient bronze effect.

    77007 Skeletal Spearman - Bones

    Thanks! I did try this before painting & got it straight but ultimately the spear just went back to how it was. I will try again though.

    Thanks! I think there's some kind of nano technology going on with the hose.....

    Yes, it would appear so....... I've been desperately trying to get them all painted for the last few months!

    Many thanks! Generally, I don't bother priming "Bones" minis, I do with metal ones however. I have been known to give "Bones" minis a thin colour wash beforehand to give some definition.

    77276 Sea Hag - Bones

    Thanks! It was quite difficult working out what was seaweed & what was clothing. There's actually a lot of details to pick out on this mini - octopus, crab, starfish, tiny barnacles & even the little bladders on the seaweed! Many thanks! I almost gave the octopus blue rings around it's legs.

    77207 Dub Bullock - Bones

    Greetings! I felt that "Dub" had something of a "Sinbad" feel to him so I painted his baggy pants & shirt in vibrant colours & contrasted these with a blue/green cloak. I kept his skin tone tanned but in retrospect, this does seem to be a little too close to his leather armor & braces for my liking. He does have a mold line right down the middle of his face which is unfortunate as it makes his nose & mouth look a little strange...... Thanks for looking!!

    Greetings! Mauve polyester workware is all the rage amongst the scientific/engineering community! Thanks for looking!!
  13. Greetings! I had initially decided to paint Mariel's dresscoat in red & white but I'm glad I changed my mind & went for blue & yellow instead. I don't often paint yellow so I'm pleased how this worked out. Thanks for looking!!
