Oh, you really disappointed me. When I read Hydra, I thought of the Anti-Aircraft tank, not a dragon. Is it even a dragon?

 

Anyway - colours are great and I really love the overall match of the figure and the base - though I have to note: What is that beneath the Hydra? Is it what I think it is? I hope that is a pool and not the result of a poor dragons incontinence ...

It’s a reptile like a dragon. Cut a head off and 2 more grow back in its place. 

 

Just a swapy little pool, he’s not THAT old... yet! ::P:

You did that in 3-4 hours? Geez, on that time scale, it is rockin'. Any C&C would be "spend more time with it" to tidy and smooth things. I'm not sure I'd get a base coat done that fast LOL.

Yep, spent more time on the base than the hydra tbh. I just slapped green liner on the hydra, then dry brushed on greens and yellow to give it a bit of depth, painted the eyes and mouths and called it good. The base was more fun/interesting to me than the figure, but the figure is what is needed at the table for next session. ::D:

In mythology, slaying the Lernaean Hydra is one of the labors that Hercules (Heracles) had to do after he killed his family in a fit of rage induced by a pissed off goddess. The challenge was that when one head was removed, multiple grew it its place. Ways to deal with this include burning the stumps before growth happens. They're very reptilian, and good at eating people. 

 

Alternatively, it could also be the group that acts against Captain America. Hydra as a group acts against good guy group SHIELD. They also run with the head-regrowth mythos as part of their insideousness. 

 

Can you show us a picture of an anti-aircraft tank named for the creature? Must be a heck of a tank to deserve to be called a hydra.

Great Job Ub3r !!!

This is one of those times I looked at the subject, ignored your technique,

and enjoyed  the color flow up and around the Hydra (and it's multiple heads),

and saw the contrast destruction of the citadel at its feet.  This is one of those "Rare"

the story tells it all.  Like the effective use of color, and impact.

My knowledge of mythology is one sentence I remember from school, in which our teacher told us that most of greek myths happend because Zeus couldn't keep it in his pants. I guess that is everything I had to know back then :-D

 

But yeah - pissed off goddesses are nothing one want to achieve. I think Arachne was also very successful in getting that done.

 

Regarding the tank. ->Check here<-

Zeus couldn't keep it in his pants. Hercules was born. Hera was pissed and cursed Hercules to kill his family. Then Herc went on a quest to prove he was really sorry about it. 

 

And that is an impressive tank indeed!

So he killed something else. Great man. He will be my new hero of today.

 

The tank is impressive. Yes. Indeed :-D

      This is my version of the Bones 77630: Sacrificial Altar
       
      I already have a bunch of evil looking altars, so I went instead for an arcane look. That said it was a speed paint.

      I decided to paint a bunch of things to fill up any torture chambers I would need to create in my builds. The table with the implements is not from Reaper and is in metal. I do not remember who it is from. :)
       
      The Bones painted up a bunch quicker though! :)

      I noticed this model bears striking resemblance to the wizard from my favorite childhood LEGO set.
       
      The scroll was done by a friend using a .25mm micron pen.

      I have some vague plans involving some Red Wizards of Thay in a future D&D game, so thought I'd get some painted in preparation. This is the first, which I'm very pleased with.
       
      The face was done mostly with the Tanned Skin triad, with some extra shadow achieved by mixing in blue liner. The beard was Grey Liner plus Rainy Grey, with increasing amounts of Pure White mixed in for the highlights. Similar for the chains, though they got a blue liner coat. Robes were a Spattered Crimson base coat over Brown Liner, with Nightshade Purple shadows, and Gory Red mixed with increasing amounts of orange and/or yellow for the highlights. The scythe handle and scroll bone were mostly Bone triad, with a brown wash and some shading with Woodstain Brown. The blade was mostly Pure Black, Rainy Grey and Pure White, with some Blue Liner mixed in. The scroll got a Polished Bone base coat, with some thin streaks of various light browns, Brown Liner for the glyphs, and a brown wash over the whole thing.
       
      This is probably one of the best paint jobs I've done, and certainly the best face to date
