My only fear is the bones pieces touching metal... I ruined a star bucks tumbler because the top plastic part was touching a metal spoon. I do hope this does not happen here. :unsure:

The is generally due to the drying phase and not the washing phase. If you disable that no problems at all as it will never get hot enough to have a chance to melt the plastic.

Yeah, I didn't use the drying phase...

Tonight I'm going to hit it up with some other colors with the airbrush. Since I'm planning on using this set for Frostgrave, there isn't going to be a whole lot of (any) green, which is what I'd usually use to hint at moss. Instead, I'll be going with browns. We'll see how that goes...

 

But yes, the airbrush makes rather short work of the terrain. So far at least...

DAVE,

 

Please do not make the mistake I did!

 

Clean up the mold lines before you go any farther and regret it!

 

I did.... (regret not doing it....)

I'm going over the ruins now... which were the mold likes that really bugged you? Most of them seem to be hidden fairly well.

Sorry to take so long...

Going over parts....

Archway- concave side line follows both arches close to edge. Tall side line up left hand side. Sort side, see my thread, I covered it with flock.

Top of Tower- outside from window ledge down to right around damaged section, then along 'lip', around to vertical damaged section. The broken window has a line as well.

Tower Base- All along exterior archways.

"Hoard Piece"- Concave side up arch on left.

Small Step- Convex side right corner into damaged area.

These are the problems that I see now that I look at mine, some I know I covered with the flocking...

Good Luck with yours!

 

George

 

They all bother me.... I should have treated this as a mini, not just the 'base'....

    • By Painting Miniatures
      whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:

      yet another dragon.  this one is an old piece i had most of and decided to go with what i had rather than trying to find the basket.  A fun little piece that I tried to do up as a sky dragon.  My first attempt at a starscape on the back of the wings to give them some interest.  Hope everyone enjoys!
