But you spelled the name wrong......

That one took me a minute, Lol!  I was sitting here thinking, "No I didn't!"

There have been multiple times since I joined the forums where people have spelled it correctly in various threads......

I love the almost iridescent look you achieved with the wings, nicely done!

 

And don't worry, you didn't actually spell the dragon's name wrong. When someone posts using purple text, it means they're joking or being sarcastic. :)

 

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention that because you're photographing a black figure with a white background, it messes with the camera and causes the mini to look very dark and hides a lot of detail. A more neutral background, such as gray or beige, with more indirect lighting (no camera flash), would go a long way toward showing more of the detail on the dragon. Hope that helps! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Thanks!  Trying the Ruby Red and Adamantium Black together really came out well, I thought

I figured it out after a frantic look at both the box that I had finally put in the trash and at the store link :)  (although the tip regarding purple text might help me out next time!

my only criticism is the lighting...can you take a picture without harsh lighting?

I tried a couple more - one with my phone's flash and a few without - part of the issue could always be that I'm using a phone camera :D

Much better.  I light the transitions even more when more visible.

 

The mix of natural and artifical light can cause some issues.  Try using indirect natural light or take pictures as night with artifical light.

      I did this one as a speed paint for a D&D game at the last minute, and then he didn't have a base for the next two years.  Well, now he's done and has a base and is just waiting for his next chance to eat adventurers.

      As I'm actually getting to play 5e, and it looks like I'll get to keep playing for a while, I figured I should go ahead and pick a mini to represent my dwarven wizard.

      Now, he isn't your typical wizard, even for a dwarf, as he goes around in a chain shirt and swings his warhammer. So the Dwarf Wizard minis, as fun as they are, are out. Going through my Bones collection, I came across this guy: Ivar, Dwarf Cleric



      Not a perfect fit, especially the backpack, but not bad. Also going against him was the fact that his hammer was miscast on my copy.

      So... to work!



      I started by removing the backpack, and giving him a good scrub to make sure any mold remover was washed off.



      Then I had to find a new hammer. The Bones Weapon Sprues had one that worked. Just about the right size...



      Clipped off the old hammer, drilled out the hand...



      And while I was at it, I cut off all the decorative stuff off the backpack, and trimmed the base. Then using my Happy Seppuku courtyard stamp, I gave him a fancier base to stand on. It's hard to see, but the pin is already in his hand, and you can sort of see the hole drilled in the shaft of the hammer.



      And here it is all glued together!



      Hmm... the anvil in the middle of the backpack... just doesn't do it for me. So I ripped the backpack off, and went back to my bits box.



      In the end I cut the bedroll and lower bag completely away, and used some greenstuff and superglue to put it all back. The barrel is from one of the Games Workshop Brettonian Infantry kits... I think the bottle might be as well, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm still debating adding a length of rope to the backpack... but otherwise, the modding is done, and it's time to get painting!
