  1. This was one of my first attempts at using a plinth, I am glad I did! Now I can make all kinds of display pieces.
  2. 60114 Viorian Dekanti. Played around with trying to make the shield look a little scuffed up and added some colors into the gold.
  3. I didnt realize there was such a thing! I guess I should explore the forum some more! Thanks! For a $50 model its quite a good one. Don't be afraid to jump on a model if its one that you really enjoy. Also, thanks!
  4. That is right, all the scales I did I tried to do directional brushstrokes to show some texture on the scales. I did lines on the big scales and on the skin on the legs I did dots. Thanks! I was very anxious / almost scared of doing that effect cause it was so bright but glad I did, it made the model pop a little Also, thanks for the comments of support! It is greatly appreciated.
  5. I did this over the past few weeks and first real attempt at making a showy base for a big model. I ended up using cork bark and some UV resin but I loved how it all turned out.
  6. Thanks for the praise, its encouraging going forward to tackle bigger scarier dragons!
  7. I do have an airbrush, I typically use it for mass basecoatings or in this case blending some large areas. I did do the yellow to orange with the air brush, which was nice but then I had to go in with the purple on the wings and do it without messing it up. It was a tedious process but pays off. Now if I were to do it with out an airbrush I would have went with a more textured look rather than smooth blends. Bulk of the time was highlighting all the scales but that is what makes the look work.
  8. Thanks all! I hope to do more of things like this in the future.
  9. This was a fun model and I was excited to do it. It has been sitting on the shelf for a while as it is a bit intimidating but I loved the final results!
  10. Thanks all! Also if anyone sees a Harvey Birdman mini that isn't a former heroclix model let me know! I would totally do that. Its a shame there isnt a Space Ghost Coast to Coast cast in minis.
  11. I had to do a lot of research as I didn't have a clue what angels did or looked like in RPG's. Actually still don't. I assume I made a decent go at it.
  12. Thanks all! And as to the back of the shield, I always try to paint those if I can. If the shield comes separate in the kit I will always paint the back, it just seems like a skipped opportunity to add some creative details.
  13. I know, not typical paladin colors, but that's okay. She is still ready to take care of some undead :D
  14. Thanks for the feedback. I will try some more dulled down and less yellow, being the first jump I am all in for some ideas! Who knows, that may even change my taste! Sepia is a good idea, it has that red undertone... hmmmm
  15. Yeah its not too far off its just too modernized. I could see this on like Future Gladiator X or something. I should have tried to keep to more simplistic patterns. perhaps next time! Also good find! it is hard to find good shield art that isnt "300" Oh all good, what do you mean by "too deep" like too dark? Averland yellow (Citadel) was primary, Dryad Brown (Citadel) was the darker brown and I used a Orange Leather (scale 75) and just mixed up and down for shading
  16. First real attempt at NMM bronze, and I got carried away with the freehand. Doesn't really match the model but eh, I enjoyed it.
  17. This model was so much fun to paint and I had so many ideas as I went along but I couldnt add them to this one so may be the next, anyways, great model, I would recommend painting it in pieces and just go nuts with it.
  18. Much like when Cobra Commander is defeated, there is always next Joes! Just gotta keep at it.
  19. Thanks! It took me like an hour and more cussing then I like to admit.
  20. I follow a few Patreons to try and learn some new things and get a hold of painting concepts I havent got down. I tried an interesting method that put some texture and life into cloth by use of glazing and some more random movements of the brush when applying paint. Well at least on the cloths. I did add a base on to this one as well and some green stuff work to make her look like she is standing in a creek.
