Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together. It is popular in many heraldic devices.
I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim. The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct. Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM. I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece. I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better. But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM: Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line? I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
Finally, one additional comment.
I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
First time posting. I was wondering what minis you all use for ancient dragons. I was looking at the Pathfinder deep ancient red dragon and it's never less than 500 on eBay. So I figured I'd check out unpainted ones from reaper. Which dragon do you think would work as an ancient red dragon in size?
This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither.
I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

So, I'm not gonna lie. At least half the reason I backed the Rising Sun kickstarter last year was simply to get my hands on this miniature. It was gorgeous, and I've been itching to paint up an Oriental lung dragon. Back in the heady days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition, I got into RPGs, and the Monster Manual portrayed the Gold Dragons as the serpentine, Oriental dragon types, and I have always felt a strong level of appreciation for that aesthetic specifically for the gold dragon. I got the KS about two weeks ago, have already played it twice with friends, and having finished my massive T'Raukzul, I decided to go ahead and paint the monsters from the Rising Sun core game. I knocked it out in 2 days. Enjoy, and I'm happy to hear about where I could improve.
