77590 - Father Dagon (Bones 3)

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I painted some Reaper mini's... but now that this little sweetheart crawled upon my doorstep, I really couldn't resist assembling him hoping to start painting soon. 

It'll be a little longer than 7 days I'm sure, and I have to hide him from my 3-year-old daughter... (to avoid her having nightmares)... but I'm glad I can finally start :-)

It's also gonna be the first Bones fig I'm painting... and I'm pretty excited to try it out  :-) 

 

Btw, compliments to the creators of this figure, what a lovely sculpt and concept!!

He's an amazing sculpt! If it's your first bones I highly suggest to give it a good soapy scrub (you probably already know this but as someone who made the mistake not to...I'm just making sure). I vote for purples! Everything is better with purple :D

If you have a liner use that as primer.

 

I have one too, it's an awesome mini!

trying out some colours...  It'll be someway going purple / blue / green I guess.

The blue is just some sort of basecoat (slightly watered down Citadel foundation Necron Abyss), it does leave a pretty shiny result which not all of my paints seem to dull once painted over... but I'll find my may though I'm sure.

some small and slow progress... I'm getting more and more an idea where I'm heading to colorwise... Not so purple in the end though I'm afraid, more green and red and some blue...

Very cool. 

 

This was one of my favorites from Bones 3, but have been trying to not start new projects until after Reapercon :unsure:

Thanks all  :-)

Here's some slow progress... been fighting all week long with the little lights... It's still not 100% of what I'm trying to achieve, but I'll get there some dy.

I'm also still trying some things with the carapace on his back. I hope further progress will give me a better idea...

Great work on the bioluminescence.  It looks very natural and gives the piece a nice deep-water feel.

      Conversion post w Sculpt WIP
      WIP post. 
       

       
      This was originally Bones #77202 that I'd ordered a while back and started sculpting on. Had gotten the sculpt finished a couple months ago between other projects, and have slowly been adding paint since. 
       
      He's a bit on the dirty looking sode, which is alright as that's what I was going for. Wanted to give him a trail worn look. Added some more coloration and softened things up more than I had originally planned, but I think it worked out. 
       
      Also, there's a faint detail of blood drops on the front of the base below the Warg's head. As I wanted to add the feeling that they were on the hunt, with the pose and the paint.

      While I still need to do his base, I finished of this pretty boy.

      Has anyone picked up some of the new Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts/D&D Marvelous figures?  I have to say that maybe Reaper should be concerned.  They seem to have better detail, they are primed (I know with Bones that doesn't necessarily matter), the plastic seems plenty durable, and the price is comparable if not cheaper.  
       
      All I have done is 2 Displacer Beasts so far (been wanting some for a while and couldn't find anything that was good and/or affordable) and they turned out really nice.  They even came with 2 black disks to use as stands.  Just a flat disk of black plastic but once I put some flock on it they were more than adequate.  Just wanted to know what everyone else thought. 
       
      Anyway also I have a bunch more on order (which means I ordered more Dwarves.....I really don't need more Dwarves..lol.) and will let you know what I think of those once I get them (note prices are Canadian).

      Another bones 3 model set I am not sure of the name of.....(I'll update the title once some one lets me know) but I like how they turned out and they didn't take long to do.

      Literally painted this in 10-15 minutes.  Would have been shorter but had to wait for the paint to dry in between lol.  I really like how it turned out.  Might do some more of these if I want to add flying robo monkeys to my campaign to terrorize the PCs with lol.
