Smaug

Recommended Posts

I've been really, really, bad. I haven't painted since, well December... Partially because my boyfriend finally popped the question around then so I've been busy with person life stuff like planning a geeky wedding, moving in together, and other real life things.  So I'll start off with my take of Smaug with the Pathfinder Red Dragon. The white got washed out but I promise it looks better in person than the pictures.

Neat idea on the gold and gems going up his belly.

 

Congrats on your engagement.

Re:  your engagement/impending doo--errr wedding:  Congratulations!  (Or congratudolences, whichever you prefer).

 

I like the idea of having the gems and gold scuttled into the belly of smaug, it's something new I don't recall seeing before with any painted dragon, well done with something new!

Did you remember to leave a small patch unprotected?  :;):   Definitely an awesome Smaug interpretation of the Pathfinder Red Dragon!  Thanks for sharing.  ^_^

Thanks! the gem was actually my fiance's suggestion. He even went out and bought small swarovski crystals for it :) Since I would never buy something fancy like that on my own for a mini.

Yes, there is a small white spot on the under belly ^_^

I picked up cheap gold glitter. Super glue on the raw bones as I wanted to make sure the jewels stuck to the plastic instead of paint on the plastic.

 

I think this rendition of Smaug is really, really charming. I love it! What did you use for the majority of the gold?

      I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but it never hurts to get confirmation. . When stripping paint from a mini (in this case a Bones that I completely screwed up the paint job on), is it necessary to get every molecule of paint off? Or is it okay if there's some bits left in some of the crenalations and under bits?
       
      Thanks!

      I painted up the skeletons I had from Bones 2 together with a Bone Fiend. The Skeletons were fun to do, the Bone Fiend a bit less as the model was quite undefined. For the skeletons, I took some inspiration from the game Morrowind for the colours, bases and shield designs.

      Finished the bases for these two 'statues'. I picked a more sombre kind of theme, almost winter or fall, as I thought it looked better with these than a bright, summer theme.

      Here's my take on this cute little guy. I tried to do more glazes on him than the way I normally paint, and his eyes are violet, which I think came out ok. Wishing I'd been able to get the huge mold line off his head but oh well. He's still adorbs.

      I hadn't even realized when I began on these three that they were all from the "Castle Stoneskull" expansion from Bones III.  It was a great set for adding to the random encounters for an RPG.

      These guys may represent some of the high-level dangers that one could encounter while dungeoneering in Castle Stoneskull!


       
       
      The Behir.  I've been wanting one since a buddy pulled one from the first Huge set of D&D prepaints.  They even show up in Pathfinder's "Reign of Winter" and D&D 5E's "Storm King's Thunder", if only I had had this guy in time for those campaigns!
       

       
       
      Brain-in-a-Jar.  While I was hoping this would be a human brain, it's still a really cool design.  I wonder why the legs are traditional bendy bones instead of the hard plastic that makes up the rest of the mini (minus the squishy brain), though.
       


      The mighty Minotaur!  Bones has a lot of representations for Minotaurs now, almost as many as Orcs or Goblins.  There's the one from pre-Kickstarter, 2 adventurers in Bones II, and the whole set of Minitaurs coming in Bones IV!  Plus all the Beastmen if you want to count them, I've seen them used as medium Minotaur PCs enough times.

      This guy is my favorite, though.  Must be the Gladiator armor.
