I'm almost done color scheming for this. I have no idea what colors to use for the black head though. I don't have a lot of blacks/black like colors currently. Also, trying to figure out a good color for the belly scales and back spines. 

 

Looks like it's time to consult the Google machine.

I've got most of the body base coated. I've also base coated the red and green heads. I used black green as a base for my green head and it is much darker once dried, I think I can work with it though. I'm really not sure how to handle the black head though. If any one has tips on that I'll take what I can get.

A couple of tips I got from Corporea are to keep 75% of your black areas black (so it doesn't look gray from too much highlighting), and alo to use a very dark blue or purple (or even green) in the shaded areas, since oddly those read as more black than straight black. :) 

 

I'm excited to see how your baby Ma'al turns out! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Got the heads based. Pretty impressed with the Bones Dragon White, good coverage for only two coats. Need to bring the green head up a lot, too dark currently.

The Bones Dragon White is a really crisp white, and brighter than the Pure White I think. Lately Scale 75's Purity White has been my favorite white though. It is silky smooth on the brush and thins like a dream. Haven't used it for base coating, however.

Really coming along nicely. Might have to pick up a second hydra to do this with.

Got the tops of the wing membranes based, going to try to fade from a bright red to a black.

Back at it. Still layering up red on the wings, should've put a little less blue liner or a more thinned liner on the wings. Getting this as bright as I want it is turning out to be a slow process.

Green head mostly done. Trying to get the red, blue, and green heads done first since they are harder to get at.

Watching your progress makes it very tempting to make a metal copy using 14445 and 14417 since I love the metal in general!

 

But $100 is a lot !!! Lol

      Hello all, this is my version of Rogaku; this is the first time I've painted a Bones mini and I found the details a  bit less sharp than the metal minis I've painted till now, but maybe it's cause of the Vallejo brush primer I used on it and, probably, the zenital dry-brushing hi-light.

      Anyway, my choice for the skin color had been red, as the iconic Oni is, usually, red skinned, and blue for the skirt (is it a skirt? ) cause it would make contrast with the orange of the  pumpkin flask;
      curiosity: the kanji on the flask just means "Oni" (really creative ).
      Green belt and jade bracer to contrast the red of the skin; and classic blue/black hair.

      As always the wood is somenthing I cannot achieve as I wish, it looks really flat 

       

      I hope you all will like it, any comment and advice is welcome!
      Thank you for reading

      If anyone looks qualified to declaim the Litany of ZAREK into an Omnicrophone from atop a golden hover-chariot, it is surely 62107, the Aeon Priest from Reaper's Numenera line. Look at this robed and jowled hierophant!

      I feel like I should put more patterning on the robe, besides the Eye of Marduk. Any suggestions? 


      There was also a Githzerai Monk I got in a grab-bag some years back and never used. A quick repaint and a pair of chainmail rings later, and hey presto! an Imperial assassin. 



      And here's the landing party in total. If they need to conquer a *second* planet in the same day, they might ask for backup. 



      (A lot of alien worlds look like the southern California Desert; this is well-known.)

      The Hype Priest spoke, his amplified voice shattering windows for blocks around.

       "Who is like unto ZAREK?" he said, "Or who dares to oppose ZAREK?
      ZAREK, the Ineluctable! 
      ZAREK the Subjugator!
      ZAREK, the Undefeated! 
      ZAREK--merciful to his vassals! 
      ZAREK--cruel to the rebellious!
      ZAREK of the Shining Hawks! 
      ZAREK of the Galactic Throne! 
      ZAREK the Ever-Living! 
      ZAREK the Conqueror of Suns! 
      Prostrate yourselves before ZAREK and live! 
      Surrender your abject planet to ZAREK and live!
      Resist ZAREK and be swept from existence!
      Glory to ZAREK!" 



      Any good spacefuture game needs an expansionist god-king with a cult army bent on planetary conquest, and Lord Zarek of Hydra's Imperials seem up to the task. I went with blue skin partly to emphasize them as aliens, partly to evoke blue-skinned gods and demons of multiple cultures (and also the Kree, various X-Men and Smurfs), and partly because I'd already used a lot of non-blue color schemes. 

      The green and gold and metallic red are garish, but garish in a way I could see Frazetta paint, or imagine from Buck Rogers or Ming the Merciless.

      Zarek is seen here with his Psi-Mages, Nodens and Oannes.


      Better views of the Psi-Mages: 





      Commander Shamash  keeps the legions in line with draconian discipline: 




      Lugalbanda and Urartu, a pair of troopers. 



      They drop out of the sky, take over a world, run it for a few hundred years, and set off for the next one. No one is quite sure why, but most of the sentient species in this sector have a cultural memory of the blue conquerors that came from the sky at the dawn of civilization. 

      One such species, apparently very far advanced technologically, just up and *vanished* in the galactic recent past. Their ruined crystal sky-cities hung abandoned over a planet whose crust had been cracked into the familiar Eye motif. Glyphs a hundred kilometers long overwrote the main continent. Xenolinguists are still working on the translation, but have come to a consensus that one of the letter-groupings translates roughly to 

      CONSCRIPTION.

      Here are a couple of quick paints I did to support my fondness for dungeon dressing - looks better than white bones on the table!
