Well done on the figure, you were very true to the art! I've heard that GF9 figures are very finicky, what was it about this one that drove you crazy?

This was probably the best of all the gf9 models i have painted so far. All the parts fit very well and nothing much to trim. no complaints. 

It is the same for any model i work on for a long time, just loses its luster after staring at it for so long.

Thanks!

Pale lichen green base, washed with citadel green shade and highlighted with pale lichen/white for the scales.  The darker green was mostly pine green base and a leaf green /sun yellow mix for highlighting.

I think you did a great job managing a complicated color palette. Nicely done!

A GF9 model that fits together well!?!?!?!  I don't believe that is possible.  I've hated working on their D&D figs for clients - they always need tons of filler and the resin is soooo brittle that it'll crumble if you look at it for too long . . .

 

Beautifully piece though.  The faces are especially vividly done.  Great work.

I dig yours for the bright fur and different shades of green! Seems we had the same idea for the monkey face. LOL 

 

 

 

Nice! What I thought was interesting is that we both did gold trim around the pillars. That was a tough decision for me. I liked the black n grays on yours too. I was thinking a blackish volcanic theme for the next one i do.

lol, yeah I've had necessary parts not fit properly at all whatsoever on some of their models (I'm looking at you Qesnef Ogre Mage) and others that were just a nightmare (cough * spider  queen * cough)

But this guy was a breeze, I was amazed at how everything just slipped into place. Not much for big gaps to fill, mostly just a little greenstuff for where the parts came together. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Yours is more gold, while I went with bronze, but similar for sure. :D 

Thanks! It's what the client wanted, and to stay away from the more red/gold fur.

      Critical Role resumes tonight (just in case you didn't know) in a brand new campaign with all new characters.  I'll be watching it on Alpha, using my same personae.  

      We have no idea who will be who, or what they will be or where they will start, but the conjecture is strong.  
      Once the show has aired, please use Spoiler tags for any content that needs it.  As the show is airing, feel free to discuss it!  There is a spoiler tag alert in the header and I'll make a big sign below.  No reason to use spoilers, but I can link to specific episodes if people need to skip something and come back to it.  Maybe we won't say too much about previous episodes that way.  Who knows... Otherwise, bring on the popcorn and lets enjoy a good show!!!
       
      Be Ye Warned!  There Be Spoilers Below!

      Posting on Grump's computer, not my Fire. I need to have more than one sentence paragraphs! (I almost posted as The Auld Grump because I hadn't logged Dennis out before logging me in.  )
       
      From time to time Grump has told me that he has literally dreamed a scenario, and I never really believed him.
       
      But I told Grump that one of his Christmas presents this year was going to be running a game so he could play for a change.
       
      Then I realized that I had NO FREAKING CLUE what I was going to run, and almost asked if he would like to run the game WITH me instead.
       
      Then Saturday night I had a dream where I was running a game, directing a movie, and watching the movie/game and suddenly I knew what I was going to run!
       
      Grump left out how WICKED AWESOME it is to dream an adventure. Suddenly I know why Grump runs games. I woke up from the dream because I WANTED TO WRITE IT DOWN!
       
      And it was REALLY nice to have my subconscious send me a message in something other than a nightmare. It sent me the solution!
       
      Wow, that was still a lot of one sentence paragraphs!
       
      Strangely, I dreamed I was running/directing/watching an Eberron adventure, even though until yesterday, I had never read any Eberron material, just knew what Grump had told me.
       
      Eberron is actually pretty awesome, and is NOTHING like Forgettable Realms or Greyhawk. It is its own place, and holds together better than any setting I have read before.
       
      The dream was a mash up of Casablanca, Raiders of the Lost Arc, National Treasure, and Maltese Falcon. Some of it was narrated by the Grump as Humphrey Bogart.
       
      The idea is that the PCs start out hired by somebody to track down an artifact that will help the gods manifest on Eberron, instead of the hands off approach that is used in the setting. (Eberron even has atheists!)
       
      In the dream the introductory patron was this fat naked man that was sometimes a silver dragon, meeting the players in a bath house, while nubile young women scrubbed him. A fat silver dragon, using the human shape to conduct business.
       
      Part of that is as a dragon, being naked really does not bother him. And part of it is to make the player characters uncomfortable, so they would not spend too much time wondering what he is really up to.
       
      And what the players don't know at the time is that sometimes he EATS one of those nubile young women.
       
      He starts as their mentor and patron, both for the players and those young women, but he is really REALLY evil, and wants to use the artifact as a way of controlling the Draconic Prophecy, fulfilling its tenets in such a way that he decides what it means. The women are cultists, but do not know that he is just using (and eating) them. They literally mean nothing to him beyond his own convenience.
       
      Rescuing the damsels from the dragon will probably be one of the adventures, at least if I know the way Grump thinks. (He WILL try to rescue them!)
       
      Even after the players learn that the dragon is the bad guy, they will need a patron, and I need to come up with several, good, bad, academic, and mercenary.
       
      Travel in the adventure will be free as long as they have a patron, and EVERY time they are traveling, something happens, or sometimes THEY happen to somebody else! I picture one of those maps where you see the characters' travels being highlighted with a colored line, like in those old movies.
       
      And the scene where Indiana Jones is racing his horse alongside a train, then jumping from the horse on top of the train.
       
      In the civilized areas travel will be by lightning rail, and when going to less civilized areas travel will be by either ship or airship.
       
      Trying to keep one thing Grump has told me over and over. "An adventure is not the story. The adventure is the framework for the story that the players tell." Don't come up with a single way to handle or solve a problem, come up with three, and expect the players to come up with four, five, and six.
       
      Doing this like the old serials  and writing each part while running the previous part. I have a general shape for the story, and an idea of where it is going. And most of all, even if the dragon DOES get the artifact, it won't do what he thinks it will do. The dragon is just as much a pawn of the REAL villain as the players start out as the dragon's!
       
      One of the things I like about Eberron, more than the Pathfinder world, is that the place is designed for globe trotting, and can handle a plot that covers more than one continent, let alone country.
       
      I am sure that Grump's DMing dreams are more coherent than mine was, but it was WONDERFUL! I went from worrying about the game to really REALLY looking forward to it! I am actually EXCITED about this!
       
      SO! I am asking for ideas for potential player patrons! One is already in the game, the Wayfinder Foundation, pretty much the Pathfinder Society by a different name. (Or the Pathfinder Society is the one with the different name, since Eberron came first.) I am picturing the leader of the Wayfinder Foundation a lot like the explorer in Up! But I will look up what he supposed to be like before committing to that.

      This is one of my favorites. My friend has me painting this whole set from the module The Scourge of Suderham and the requirement is to have them all painted close to the way they appear on the box.

      crooked resin staff. I snapped the top part trying to straighten out. My friend grabbed and almost broke the bottom part trying to straighten out, thinking it was metal. It doesn't bother me too much, almost looks animated in a way.

      I'm calling this done. A good friend made the base - which helped set the stage for this fearsome beast.  (Model from Pacesetter Games).  Fun to paint!
