Small Red Dragon

Recommended Posts

Like him a lot - and we both know you can never have too many dragons!

 

Oh, and even if he had faded, it's not pink, it's lightish red.  ;-)

Thanks but ingot tonne fair, you add to much white to red, hyou get pink.  It's initial paint work was done before I had figured out using clear colors and artists reds, leaving him a dark red highlighted in a light pink.  At the time in was tempted to call him the healthy gum dragon!  However, some new techniques and he looks much better!

"Guess what, they already have a color for lightish red. You know what it's called? Pink.  "

 

All RVB quoting aside, he's a cute dragon and one I don't recognise.

I am almost positive this is a Red dragon from Grenadier, because I have it sitting on my shelf:) I know it was a boxed dragon in a grenadier box (think I lost the box years ago), but lost mini's doesn't seem to list it:( I'll try and post it later:)

That would be great if you could pin it down.  I never have much luck with visual searches and the few markings on the bottom doesn't really provide any clues.  Honestly, I would have thought more Ral Partha than Grenadier

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
       
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
       
      Hope you like what you see...

      whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
