You have a talent for painting oldschool miniatures, somehow they always look excellent and nostalgic!!!

 

Now I want one of these, while I know I can't paint it like that... <_<

A really wonderful paint job on that model!  I'm surprised how wonderful the sculpting its on it.  Makes me wonder who the sculptor was.

I have to admit I've always had that mental stumbling block with this figure because of his cold drake name, never makes me think of reds, but now that I see him in his crimson glory it opens up a world of possibilities! Beautifully executed figure!

I have a similar issue with vampires - I always feel like they must always be painted in red, black & gold. Maybe this sort of thing is a recognised "condition" amongst miniature painters Lol!

I troll for inspiration and a good kick in the pants! - Consider that accomplished!

 

This is simply gorgeous - beautifully painted.  The model is relatively uncomplicated and it seems almost attainable for even someone of my meager skills (i always feel that way... until i am actually painting!).  I have a couple of very specific questions...

 

The perfect shading on the head - is that all very methodically wet blended? - It looks like it could be a wash, but my washes never come out that nice ;)

 

What colors/process did you use on the spikes - i love this aged ivory look, but i cannot seem to get it right

 

Thanks for the help and the inspiration... off to eBay to look for an old school dragon ;)

      More Stuff I did on Summer Vacation.
       
      PingosHusband gave me a set of Citadel "Sisters of the Thorn", female wood elves riding what are supposed to be deer, I think (although they have solid hooves and their antlers attach weirdly). Anyhow, they look pretty cool. The set also could make up some hunky shirtless male riders in creepy antlered masks, and I ended up making one of those along with four of the females.
       
      And then there were parts left over.
       
      Sooo ...  I had enough to make one more full male torso and one female torso lacking hair (and three male torsos that need hair and right arms, but that's a project for another day ...).
       
      Well, what can you do with a torso?
       
      Obviously, make centaurs (horse or spider) out of them. I lugged out my bin o' Bones and found 77264: Female Centaur sculpted by Sandra Garrity (There's a male centaur too, but interestingly the female "horse" part is larger and more robust than the male.) and 77182: Arachnid Archer sculpted by Gene van Horne.
       
      I ruthlessly sliced off the human torso from the centaur and used a pin because I'm not sure how well epoxy adheres to Bones.

       
      I carved the waist of the spider body a little to fit the elf torso, but I didn't take pictures of that. This is the figure fitted in but not yet glued. There wasn't any hair for this torso, so her face is only a hollow mask glued to the neck at a tiny contact point at the back of the chin, fragile and just a little creepy.

       
      I mixed up some epoxy and drizzled little comma-shapes onto parchment paper, let them dry, and peeled them off. Then I mixed more epoxy and blobbed it into the back of the elf's skull and added dried epoxy commas until it looked more or less like hair.

       
      Here are the two of them done:

      Been a productive month for me. Animals are springing to life everywhere. 
       
      Out the “white minis” pile I pulled the  Bones Chimera.  It’s a quick tabletop level effort, but after staring at it for two years, I just wanted it painted.  Since I wasn’t really invested in the outcome, I thought I’d do something a little different, so I went with a purple dragon.

      Good evening everybody,
       
      so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages.  I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties.
       
      Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!
