Those waxy pastes that came with the dragons were Ral Partha's "Dragonscale™ Metallic Wax Rub On"... They were released as a set as well, in little jars that screwed together top-to-bottom in a stack. I still have most of the set.

 

I really need to find myself a copy of this guy sometime. He's awesome.

I love that you remained very minimal on this one.  I picked up a repro of this a couple years ago, digging through a bin of random pieces in order to find the whole thing.  I agree with the not being sure how exactly to handle it because it's so pretty.  But pretty is why I got it.  And you did a great job with the application of less is more.

Great dragon, I really like the water effects on the base, well done!

This one is still out there and available on the ralpartha.com website!

      Good evening everybody,
       
      so my Shadowrun quest goes on, and I just finished the last of a quartet of street mages.  I think I'm enjoying these because the color schemes are different than I usually use, and I don't feel at all odd about painting different and punky hair colors with the game and the figures conceptualized by in the eighties and nineties.
       
      Anyways, here's another street mage, and Elven Combat Mage, hope you enjoy!

      Hi guys,
      so I'm slowly working my way through some Shadowrun figures, and here is my latest one.  This is number three of a set of four Street Mages, one more left to go on the set.
       
      Tried to use pretty much just greys, blues and purples, didn't want too much contrast!
       
      So anyhoos,  not too much metal on this figure, which was kind of nice.  Next one hopefully in a few days to complete the set!

      So here's the last of the trilogy I was working on, another Shadowrun figure that I finished this morning so that I could start a little vacation tomorrow without any pending figures to distract me. She's a Dennis Mize piece, female gang member with pistol from the great old Shadowrun line

       
      As with the other ones I'll eventually photograph her with the set of four figures in total she comes with, so kept her off a base and just painted the base she came with. Otherwise, the four figures with such large bases wouldn't fit in the photo. These bases in themselves are pretty large so she's pretty stable on it, even though she's kind of teetering on the back side of it.
       
      So enjoy, more miniature mayhem when I get back!

      So I continue painting Shadowrun figures, really enjoying them a lot! 

      Tonight's figure is another mage, a Corporate Mage with staff.  I see a few spots I'm not too fond of, but overall not too disappointed. I actually like how her black leather boots turned out!
       
      An odd little aspect of the figure is that curly, frizzy hair she has.  I've seen a number of Dennis Mize sculpts with that hair style. Not really sure why he did that. It was suggested to me that it's because he used often the same heads over again, but still makes me wonder why he did the frizz in the first place

       
      Working on her at the same time as I've been working on another gal with the same flesh tones, so hopefully I'll have another one ready soon!

      Good evening everybody!
       
      So just finished another Shadowrun figure, a Street Mage with a Moon Staff. I'm not sure if the sculptor is Dennis Mize, I'm almost sure it is, but her face is a little different than a typical Mize piece.  
       
      I'm going to eventually paint the entire set she came with, a bunch of Street Mages, which is why I didn't actually put her on a base, but rather painted the one she came with. It's pretty large and stable and when the other three are finished I'll want to photograph them all together, and if they're all on bases, they might not fit comfortably in the photo.  So more to come!  Really enjoying these Shadowrun figures. 
      This figure I like in particular because it kind of could fit just about anywhere, she could be fantasy without any guns or modern weaponry or technology tying her down,  or she could still fit in with the "post-modern" Shadowrun vibe.
       

       
      I may end up basing her eventually, because I really do prefer figures be on bases because they wouldn't be touched so much.
       
      So, anyhows, hopefully you like her!
