    I'm having trouble deciding on 4 busts.. I'm in for the dragon bust as an add on

     

    Right now I'm in for:

     

    Orc Queen

    Goblin

    Orc Warlord ?

    ??

    Dragon

     

    I'm hoping they add a Lion hunter bust...

     

    I'm thinking I'm in for:

     

    Male shaman (I love how creepy he is!)

    Female shaman

    Orc Queen

    Orc Female Champion

     

    If they unlock the Lion bust and it can be selected as one of the 4 options I will get it instead of the Champion

    Gotta be honest, Gauth is one of my least favorite dragon sculpts. I'm not really into the looming Godzilla type dragon. Nothing wrong with him. Just... less my type. He may end up on a tabletop, or Sir Cyr will paint him. I like the midsize and just-over-human-size stuff from the core set more. I haven't even considered what color Gauth should be. If I did paint him, maybe gaunt colors. Gaunt Gauth. Hah.

    I'm right there with you on Gauth. I'll probably paint him up and then put him up for sale somewhere to recoup some of the cost of the set, but I'm not a fan of him. His pose lead to my pet name for him as the "vomiting dragon." He just doesn't do it for me at all. But I'm looking forward to much of the rest of the Core, so I was happy to get the entire Core set.

     

    I'm hoping that Bones 5 is a ways away, though. I need time to recoup some expenses before I can go hog wild into another big KS like that...

     

     

    I agree with both of you which is why I am considering painting him as a statue.  If I don't do the statue thing he will at least be good practice with the airbrush for the dragons that I do like!

     

    BTW did anyone see the Storm Giant :wub: from the Reaper Live last night?!  Oh my...

    Couple recent unlocks for the final 24h push!

     

    Still can't decide between these and the Ouroboros campaign.  I like that I can get 4 busts here for what it would cost me for 1 in the other campaign but these are quite a bit smaller and I already have a couple different orc busts so not sure I need more.  Although with my limited display area maybe some smaller busts might be nice.  Better decide soon!

  4. I always have ideas for dioramas that never really get made so not sure this will happen but I am considering painting Gauth as a large statue standing behind a throne with a dragon queen/king.

    My Gauth is most likely going to end up a ice dragon

     

    I like this!  Maybe I could do an ice dragon king/queen throne room and have the Gauth statue with icicles hanging from his wings, hands, and snout.

  5. The creator posted a message in the comments page that they now plan to have the miniatures be self assembly.  Which honestly, I think is super cool!  I don't do enough of it and I'm only in for the miniatures so self assembly leaves a lot for conversions.

     

    They may get some blow back from it but a lot less than if they would have had they changed the minis or lowered the quality of the minis. 

     

    They also acknowledged that this probably won't cover the $80K but that it will help a lot.  I am not sure if they are going to eat the rest of the bill or what they will do to cover the remainder.

  6. I would much rather have more of tgeir existing paints!  I am still trying to learn them and dont need to throw more on top of that!

     

    Also I recently bought some oil paints to use as washes and just opening a couple small tubes to just check them out and I had paint EVERYWHERE!  I am not a fan of tubes.

    Looks great.

     

    The fur could use some highlights, think soemthing in the range of sandal wood, a creamy brown.

    Then highlight small parts up from brown to  almost white.

    I did that with this bear.

     

    You could even take it farther with more white.

     

    I was thinking the same but was worried that the contrast with the teeth/claws might be muted.  I think you're right though because I want the fur to pop a little more.

     

    Maybe I'll have the trophies as more of an ivory and use your suggestion of a creamy brown highlight for the fur. 

     

    I love that Sandalwood!  When I get taxes back I am going to get some more Scale75 paint sets.

  8. So I got a little more done on him and he is progressing steadily.  I'm still pretty happy with I'm but I will take any tips, advice, or suggestions anyone has.

    I worked on the fur and am  pretty happy with how it turned out but not sure if it looks realistic.  Any thoughts?

    Added a little more color to the lips and brought in some more highlights to the skin but not sure the highlights showed up.  I still feel the face needs more contrast so I think I will push the highlights a bit further and see how it looks.

     

    The teeth or claw trophies and his under vest thing are just place holder colors.  I had spent too much time looking at green paint and need to break that up a bit.

     

    Any C&C is greatly appreciated!
