NebulousMissy takes on the Rainbow Dragon Challenge

Recommended Posts

This is the first true dragon I've ever tackled. Hordes minis don't count ::P:

 

I went with Deathsleet for his rearing pose and...

01: Fire Red

09: Heather Blue

20: Pure White

 

...... It's a 4th of July dragon!

 

No, no, bad Neb. Not painting a dragon covered in stars. Too weird. I can... wait... Eeeeeeheheheheheee...

 

I'll see how these paints mix when I get them. Because even with a 3-star challenge I can blend through purple.

I know, it could be for the French flag, and all the fabulous cheeses and baked goods and wine. Or Britain with copious amounts of tea. Or Iceland, with fermented shark as a delicacy. Or.... lots of others. 

 

But y'know, eagles. The most ferocious looking carrion munchers around. Gotta remind them that there is a bigger and badder flappy thing around - a dragon. 

 

Red white and blue are generically good colors together. No wonder so many flags make use of them :poke:

I like those pics!

They remind me of books about Dragons I read as a kid.

 

This challenge is an awesome idea, so many people joining and so many ideas and awesome colours showing up!

I have a delivery date.

 

Saturday at some point.

 

Let's see if it actually gets delivered instead of that other thing UPS does where they refuse to deliver my stuff due to flimsy excuses and I have to head to the docks to pick it up myself.

UPS makes me rage sometimes. You can pay for delivery in a specific window of time OR on a specific day. 

 

I've had them fail to make both those marks when paid. 

 

This is problematic for things that need signatures >.< 

 

May your dragon and paints arrive unscathed!

My stuff arrived late friday night.

 

I got some major mold line removal done last night. Painting won't begin immediately, I have a game to run tonight.

These colors do not match at all.

 

My red is a primary red, bright and pure and appropriate for Patriot Dragon.

 

My blue is desaturated, demure, a middle gray-blue like the color of a misty sky at sunset before the pretty colors appear. There have been threats that my paint will be stolen for a Heavy Gear army ::P:

 

I can't shortcut this at all, can I. Time to mix things.

      Learning from my previous forays into blending with wings, I decided to try for something more challenging.  In doing this, I learned that sometimes the parts of bigger minis don't fit together as well as one hopes, which in this case resulted in some  improvisation, especially around the foot/base socket and the wings.  But I am enjoying how he came out.  He was wondrously bumpy.  :-)

      I had finished the dragon in December last year, but I still had the base to work on. Finally finished this brand new looking clockwork dragon painted with metallic paints and my favorite blue, Nightmare Black this weekend.  I still have another, thinking of doing a rusty/tarnished version sometime.

      This one was painted up in a bit of a hurry for a D&D game. I'm pleased with the overall effect (especially the wing colouring), but I'd like to have taken a bit more time to make the scales pop. The wings were airbrushed to get the smooth blending; the rest was done with a hairy stick. Mostly Peacock Green, Brilliant Green and Viper Green, I think. With some yellow mixed in for highlights and a darker olive shade for the darker bits.
       
      The broken tower was made with a sheet of cork - i cut a load of blocks and made the edges a bit ragged, then did a lot of drybrushing and washing. The trailing vines came from a bag of lichen which got some brown wash to make it look slightly less pleasant.

      After 6 months of painting 4-10 hours a week on this monster, I am finally finished with Reaper Bones Ma'al Drakar 77580.

      Good evening folks,
       
      So here is one I just finished up, a really old school Partha Piece, don't recall her original name, but she's some kind of sorceress or Dragon Lady. Sculpted by Tom Meier, this one didn't have a year on the bottom, but I think this was probably sculpted originally 1977-1979 or so.  I did the base as just one flat blue color, that as I look at it, I'm regretting. I might go back and do a little something with it. I didn't want to do a natural, grass and dirt base, because I didn't want to hide any of the dragon, who is not too large.
