Vacaroja's New Year's Resolution

Recommended Posts

Basecoating.  Right now it looks like a 5 year old got a hold of the crayolas.  Which is amazing.  Hehe.

The inspiration is this guy.

I'm on a break from work at the moment.  So lots of painting will be happening for a little while.  Today, I used GW shades for the first time.  They're a happy thing.  And also now there are eyes!  Was scared of them a bit, because they were so bulbous.  But after much internet searching, Toothless from "How To Train Your Dragon" became my inspiration.

Today's progress was on the belly and then some work on the purple of the body.  Mystery purple for the basecoat because it's such an old bottle the label has faded.

We'll see what color the base stones end up being.  I'm being indecisive.  They've changed colors 3 times already, ha.

And the rocks changed color again!

 

We are on the home stretch.  I touch of highlighting on some points, but pretty much done.  I wasn't completely happy with it the last couple days.  Then the hubs said that a fairy dragon should be glittery.  Yes!  Not the easiest thing to see under the desk lights, but, oh yeah, the glitter from interference paint is joyous.

Next on the list - three figures.  First is the Polar Bear Warrior from Dark Sword Minis.  Already glued and green stuffed the seams.  And then I'm taking two items I picked up from Iron Winds Metals a few years ago, a lizard mount and an Amazon woman, and combining them.  Amazon was a standing figure that I manipulated to get her sitting on the mount.  There's quite a bit of green stuff that's going to be needed for those two.  As well as some other modifications, like I will be removing the big skull saddle horn and adjusting the saddle to fit her better, and converting some hanging skulls to be more monstrous.  Monster hunting, lizard riding Amazon!

Today's progress.  Much green stuff.

 

Original saddle horn removed and reimagined.  Removed and added on skulls from Citadel. I have hundreds. Have to use them up somehow, ha.  And I added some tusks and horns to those I did not remove.  Nothing too dramatic.  Just wanted them to express not human.

And then also filled in a lot of seams as well as removed a couple elements I simply did not understand.  I think one was a tab that might have been there to attach a piece of equipment of some sort.
