77580: Ma'al Drakar (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Gorgeous...

 

I love the main body and how you finished as well as the wings.  Also not the typical red dragon rendition but I think it fits perfectly with the multi colored heads!

Beautiful!   Awesome! Outstanding!

 

And you have given me some ideas for finishing mine!

This is painfully gorgeous work. I spent around a fifth of the time you estimate you put in when I painted my Ma'al Drakar, and I couldn't have gone any further on it before I went mad. This is amazing work, and I congratulate you on how terrific this turned out.

Did you assembly him prior to painting? or did you paint the the pieces separately and then assembly him afterwards?

The reason I'm asking is with some of the dragons the wife and I recently painted pre-assembled them and then found some places difficult to reach.

And we are debating whether to assembly Ma'al Drakar first or to paint the pieces individually and then assembly him and do the blending/touch-up.

I painted some of the pieces separately to make it easier.  I attached the neck pieces to the main body, then filled the gaps, building some extra scales with putty because the seams looked too obvious.  The head pieces and wings were painted separate because the seams hid or fit in really well naturally.  The whole body was separate from the base parts until finished and sealed all around.  I painted most of the wings before glueing them on and then finished painting wing details and highlights after glueing so I could have a better sense of where to highlight.  Heads were glues on last.

      About
      This project creates a resin dragon model for use in the Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures Game in 32mm scale.  This model will be sculpted by the amazingly talented Julie Guthrie.  You can easily find examples of her work by searching online, particularly her work for Reaper Miniatures.  We are extremely fortunate to be collaborating with her on this project.
      For more information about the Freeblades game, see our website at www.dgsgames.com Your pledge will take this new creature from concept art, to masterful sculpture and then into production to be delivered to our backers. 
      Dragons are denizens of the hidden world of Karelon, an alternate reality separated from the World of Faelon by The Between.  There are nine dragons, one for each of the nine energies: fire, water, air, earth, ice, illusion, celestial, void and an energy not yet revealed in our world.  Thrakansor is the Dragon of Fire, and devastates Faelon in the opening stages of the BrightSword War.
      To get a sense of scale of the model, here is the concept art with a human silhouette for reference.  That silhouette represents a human-sized Freeblades model 32mm in height.
      The model will come with a 120mm round resin base.  
      Sometime after all rewards have been delivered, Thrakansor will enter the Freeblades game system with complete rules and be available for use in scenarios that feature a large beast such as Beast Hunt and The Lair.  We intend to publish additional scenarios that specifically make use of this model.  Interested backers can be part of the playtesting of this model's rules and scenarios.
      This is a very simple project.  We are only making one thing - this beautiful dragon model.  There will not be any stretch goals, so the incentive to get us over the funding level rests in your hands.  Tell all your friends who might be interested that they can have a large resin dragon model sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the simple pledge of $60.  
      We here at DGS Games would like to take this opportunity to thank our long time friend and Freeblades player Bryan Bledsoe for being the driving force behind this project.  Bryan generated sufficient interest in this project for us to take a look at doing it far earlier than intended and it has led us to this point where we are collaborating with one of the world's most renown miniature sculptors to bring a very important new creature into our pantheon.  A million thanks Bryan, we would not be here without you.
      One of the main reasons why this project was not originally on the plate for this year is that we already have a major kickstarter project planned for launch on 1 January 2019 in which we will create two entirely new factions for the Freeblades game.  Please follow us and watch for more information coming soon.
      For our friends beyond the borders of the US:
      International Shipping Zones
      Please add the appropriate amount to your pledge for the area you live in. If you have any questions please let us know and we will get you an answer.
      Mexico/Canada - add $15 United Kingdom, Mainland Europe, Australia  - add $22 Anywhere else - add $40

      All of a sudden, two bear-sized rodents covered in open sores and overripe pustules emerges from the debris piled up in the corner of the oubliette. They rush towards you their open maws showing six-inch incisors. Here are the 77198, Barrow Rats, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Julie Guthrie.

      Here comes the boggy 77521, Gravewailer, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Julie Guthrie. This ghostly aberration is also known as a Gibbering Mouther or Babélien. I painted it with acrylics, ink and sealed it with gloss brush-on sealer.

      WiP, my vastaryous dragon from the Sword&Sorcery board game. Based on the big reaper bones 3 dragon on this forum.... Tail needs to become a bit darker... But happy with the color tones in the different heads and necks. 
      C&C more than welcome...
