03807 Dragoth

16 posts in this topic

I wanted to post my newest WIP. Here is the start of Dragoth the Defiler.  

The throne comes in three pieces. So I used Green Stuff to bind it together and fill the cracks on the throne. 

By making very thin strings and pushing into place with different objects I was able to conceal all the cracks.

Im going to let this stuff dry and Ill prime it tomorrow.

I'm pretty excited to see what colors you decide to go with.  I picked this guy up also l, but probably won't get around to painting him for a while.

Nice! I painted that guy up a while back. He's a fun figure to paint - the throne has a ton of fun little details. Lots of skulls and bones and chains and some lovely flayed skin all over the place.

 

FYI you can actually prime greenstuff while it's still wet - it says so on the package and I have done so when in a rush without any ill effect. Of course, YMMV.

Wow, I had no idea. Thanks, you just saved me a ton of time on all my future projects.

I wanted to let the green stuff fully dry so I could scrap the excess from the fine detail . I then mixed up some MSP primer and mixed it with the current mixture I have been working with ( please see this thread

)    And applied three coats using an old  #8 filbert brush. As for the colors I will be using . I have decided to use the gold , black, violet  triad. As wa pointed out there are tons of bones which will give it an ivory color also. While I let this all dry in layers I added this guys head , using two part epoxy .

I then applied a wash of Shadowed Stone with that same old #8 filbert. The wash brought out the finer details and gave me some shade to work with.

Using Chestnut Brown, Pure Black , and Weathered Stone I started to cut out the base color. I am going to dress Dragoth in gold plate with a power sword of some sort, I'm thinking a burning ember flame sword of some sort. There are 4 pieces of skin on the throne I noticed. Im going to make this a weathered leather effect. The tiny piece of violet will come in on the shreds of fabric on the skeleton on the back of the throne. Next Ill lay down my bone color

I completed the base coats , The bones i needed to make a lil more yellow for my liking so I added 1 drop of buckskin pale to my 2 drops of aged bone. I also added 2 drops of Lahmian medium.

For the chains I used New Gold . I then positioned Dragoth on the throne and added his arm with two part liquid acrylic epoxy.and a small bit of green stuff. He was then ready to be primed.

I applied a glaze of black and the mixture and I found in the craft section here.  http://www.reapermini.com/TheCraft/15

Next I will glaze some dark browns onto the bones using same paint mixture ratios as i did for the black.

The black wasnt dark enough and the flow improver left a slight shine on the rock. I reglazed it a bit darker with a lahmian based glaze.Now i think its ready for the bone shadowing

I started this layering process by glazing with a 2 -1 ruddy leather black glaze and filled in the lower parts . I then highlighted with same original bone mixture and reglazed with a 2 -1 earth brown , black mixture using lahmian after this dried I then re-highlighted in very tiny areas with a very thin buckskin pale on the very tips and highlights and reglazed with the same earth brown mixture as before. When this was all dry I took a straight black wash and touched the eye sockets on the skulls to deepen the recesses. Next step will be to age or weather the skins.
