89001: Pathfinder Red Dragon

Recommended Posts

Great job!  You can tell you used this as a labor of love with the many layers of color painted on each scale individually.

Very nicely done.  One of these days mine will get painted too. I agree that he is one of the nicest dragon sculpts around.

Aah, the satisfaction of removing a piece from your 'semi-painted shelf of shame' (this is the worst shelf there is.. Oh the accusing, damning looks those "semi-finished"s give you.. Shudders) ..

 

... And the result is thus... You have reason to celebrate Sir!

Thank you for all the kind comments! (No critique so far...)

Nice.  I like the addition of the eggs in the back.

 

If you look carefully, there's a snake in there, coveting the eggs. You can just make out the eyes in the picture! :D

Great job, awesome work on those scales!

 

The scales were a major undertaking, with 4 layers on top of the base, and by far the most dearing task of it all. I focused by taking each part in turn, to keep focused (I never glue a model together before painting). But all that work also means it will be some time before I paint something scaled again... :P And I will likely try out two brush blending next time, as to see if I can improve on myself.

Really nicely done. I love the scale highlights and the wings.

 

The wings were the last thing I did. I was really in doubt as to what color I should pick for the interfemoral membrane, so it took some time and some googling for inspiration. Same goes for the belly armor - I thought about doing it in the same colors as the wing membranes, but in the end settles for what you see here, simply because I thought it looked good enough on the finished model. ;)

Heh, yeah, looking at it thinking "Oh, I will just pick this up and paint 200 scales more!" was quite a wall to overcome! :D And now I will go back to my semi-painted shelf, because things have hobbled up in the mean time, and I have promised myself to paint some of those before I start on some new Bones..

The scales and wings turned out amazing.  Looks like time well wasted. lol.  My copy must of come from latter in the mold cause he was a little butter face.  lol.  Still good enough for table top though.  My only wish about the model is that I wish it was bigger.

      Hi everyone.
      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.
      Thank you.

      Hey all,
      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?
      Thanks

      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!

      The title says it all
      Has anyone come up with stats for pathfinder for Ma'al Drakar?

      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.
