So it's Minivember. The month where one tries to paint one different model each day. As is typical, I am rather late to the party, having been busy with work the whole of the first week. So I will try to do a different model each day (or rather, the equivalent: 30 different minis this month) the important bit being "different" so duplicates do not count for the Minivember tally. And when I say duplicates I also mean similar minis (e.g. of the same type, or from the same unit). So doing say, 30 Clanrats will still only count as one. So these will be semi-randomly selected minis, and we start out with a baby dragon: Reaper makes many great dragons, and for the most part, the Bones material works well (as in "well, they will need some support or else they will sag over time due to the weight of the massive dragon on the comparatively spindly legs."), but on these smaller dragons the material shows it's limits when it comes to the finer details. The supposedly clawed hands were mostly blobs I needed to carve out, the supposedly fanged mouth was mostly solid gums with lines in them, and the eyes.... The eyes needed to be painted on. This might have been a miscast, but I imagine it is not. Many Bones tend towards softness in the fine details. But then again, it's Bones. The whole point of which is to make the minis cheap and easy to deal with. Which they admittedly are. This is not a Â£10 model! Yay! 77274: Dragon Hatchling Red Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 40mm base Minivember tally: 1
Jessie posted a topic in Mini Exchanges and Paint ContestsBones2 Hatchling Beauty Pageant June 2016 - August 31st 2016 1. Paint ONE of the FOUR dragon hatchlings: 77271: Dragon Hatchling Blue 77272: Dragon Hatchling Green 77273: Dragon Hatchling Black 77274: Dragon Hatchling Red 2. You don't have to paint them per the color description, paint them any color you like. The base should also be painted in some manner. The hatchlings came with the core set of Bones II so anyone who bought the core set from that should have them, or pick one up from your FLGS (Friendly Local Gaming Store) if you like! 3. Post your entry by midnight CST on August 31st, 2016. Only post photos in this thread, any questions/comments can be had in the discussion thread here. As many photos per figure as seems reasonable, please try to post per the forum rules on photo sizes. If you decide to paint all four hatchlings, please just pick one to enter here so it is simplified for voting, but you can link to your show-off post for your other ones if you like. 4. Check back September 1st or 2nd and we'll set up the voting. 5. Have fun! A beauty pageant is just to give you a chance to paint the same figure as a bunch of other like minded folks. Whether you are a true beginner or have been painting for years, whether you are a master, paint only for tabletop, or still have a lot to learn this is a great way to participate in a challenge and just have fun. Hope to see your beautiful entries, hit me up in the discussion thread for any questions! Thanks!
I couldn't decide which of the Dragon Hatchlings to do up for the Beauty Pagent Challenge....so I did all four, but then put them all on the same base. Really good practice for doing a display base w/ still having a playable single. Hard for me to keep in focus, still practicing photo shots, need to learn more - as just leaving on Macro-Auto. Setting doesn't always give the best look. C&C welcomed.
