That is just a stunning piece all around, and I love the whole composition!  You are going to do super, super well at ReaperCon with this one (as with all your stuff!), but I can't even imagine how much of a nightmare travelling with a resin piece this big would be!


Once again, wonderful job!!!  ::):

I'm going to ship it (hopefully) so it should be a lot safer than trying to stuff it into my carry-on.  Yeah- when I decided to finish the "ginormous dragon of doom" it occurred to me it wouldn't fit.  I thought about assembly when I got there, but it would be too stressful.  So, post office here I come!


Thank you so much everyone!  It's a huge relief just to have this project done.


Next... the oracle dragon we all won last year!  I promise an in-depth WIP.  the plan: taking a lionfish pattern and doing it in blues and greens.  I may, if not exhausted, do an underwater ruin and certainly will make a bunch of fun corals for the base pillar!

      This is Scale 75's Ares Operator 03. It's a 40mm resin future soldier and apparently part of a gaming system. The package had some cards in it, but since I don't play the game, they're a bit lost on me... Anyhoo...
      The figure is four parts - head, upper torso/arms, lower torso/legs, and the rifle with molded on hands. Cleanup was taking care of the usual casting seams and the removal of bits and pieces of mold trash. I used the gray Stynelrez primer (brushed on out of the bottle) and Reaper MSP paints. I used a Dremel tool and ball/dovetail cutters to mark up/damage the armor and went with a splotchy green camo. While they have their place, I tend not to use bright colors on military figures because all they say to me is 'Here I am! Shoot me!'.
      The figure is mounted on a sanded/stained wood craft block with Aves Apoxie Sculpt groundwork, kitty litter rocks and somebody's weeds. I added a dripping rusty pipe coming out of the ground and a large putty teddy bear.

      Now that I have your attention...
      This is Percival, a one inch(ish) tall resin penguin from Scale 75. The piece is part a larger model in S75's SmogRiders line. It's not normally available separately, but I was able to score one when it fell off a truck. The piece originally had a WW I style Prussian spiked helmet. I removed the helmet and added a WW II British helmet from my spares box. The groundwork is Aves putty stippled with a stiff oil painting brush to give it a sandy texture. The sandbags are also putty formed with my fingers. I left my fingerprints on them to give the impression of coarsely woven canvas. The sign is sheet plastic and strip. Reaper MSP paints. Eventually, it'll have a name plate 'Why Am I Here?'

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      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.
