  1. Hey guys been away for a long while doing this amazing diorama! Dragons don't share 2! What an awesome time I had doing this the scenery is beautiful the dragon is majestic! I also decided to switch out the team in the box for a group of treasure seeking wizards and sorcerers. As always comments are wanted and appreciated!!! I Have taken many pics to capture every aspect of the model!
  2. Trodax

    Narthrax

    Painted up Narthrax, the biggest beast I've done so far. I didn't back Bones 2, but this dragon was one of the pieces on my must have list, and I grabbed it as soon as it hit retail. I think it's such a great dragon sculpt. My first plan was to put him on a 75 mm base to be used as a Huge dragon in D&D, but I soon realized that was simply not going to fly, so he ended up on a 100 mm instead. Painting wise, I pretty much based it (but tried to improve) on the Pathfinder Red Dragon I did about a year ago (which was kind of a test piece with Narthrax in mind). I also messed around with some Vallejo fluorescents for the mouth and eyes. Hope you like!
  3. Since Painting Dog finally received my very late mini, I can post up the pictures I took of it. In the exchange questionnaire Painting Dog stated that they liked dragons and sic-fi stuff, so I decided to do both, because what's the point of a present if it's not awesomesauce. A space dragon was just what I wanted, but I wanted one with a gun. Like, a really big gun. So I took a chain gun from a CAV and attached it to the side of my dragon, as well as sculpting some armour onto it. I sculpted the terrain to match what is already on the bones silver dragon, then decided that it would look awesome if it was all blue, because he's on an alien planet, right? The dragon was painted purple, first a very dark purple (carnival purple with shimmer black paint), then amethyst purple brushed over that to make it look gem-like. The wings were painted with black shimmer paint, with slightly less dark nightmare black mixed with more shimmery black. The stars on the bottom parts of the wing were made with a toothpick and a silver. The belly scales, fins, and claws are all shimmer black, highlighted with darkened silver. For the gun, I wanted the barrel to look like it had recently been fired a lot, so I tried to make it look like hot metal. And I also put a little wrist computer around dragon's arm, also using a toothpick to make the design. I left it with a shiny finish because I really didn't want the matte sealer to dull the shimmer paints. In hand it looks very bright and rich, without all the shine spots that are in the picture. Of course if Painting Dog wants to put a matte finish on it, they can, but I wanted them to see the shiny version so they have both options
  4. ok this is not my best work but it started out as a bet or a dare. I was helping put the base colors on a group of Bloodreavers and I noticed that my friend had about 15 brushes from citadel and I made a little fun about how if he didn't need to buy every brush on the market he could buy more minis. he asked me how many brushes I had with me and I said 5 but 2 of those are the same detail brushes. I also said I usually just use a wash brush to apply the primer and base colors. I thought he was going to stroke out. he then challenged me to paint a mini with a wash brush. I chose the shadow dragon from the reaper bones line. I have always liked this mini and thought I would do it as a white dragon. I based the mini in snow shadow and washed it in blue ink. next I faded some of the snow shadow and highlighted it with vampiric (not sure if that is even a word) highlights. enjoy and please remember it was done with a citadel wash brush. oh I won 5 Bloodreavers on the bet.
  5. Herein I'll take up the challenge of the infamous Jabberwock from Bones 1. I already attached the wings and sculpted their joints with Magic Sculpt. This piece is well known for its tendency to sag under its own weight. Others have come up with various solutions. I intend to burrow along the length of the left leg, as indicated with the green stripe, and embed a bent jumbo paperclip for reenforcement. Then I'll have to re-sculpt the removed surface, but after doing the wing joints that doesn't seem exceedingly difficult.
  6. Hey guys back again with the mighty Deathsleet. I decided to go crazy with colour to make this dragon stick in peoples memories! I decided he would definitively be a Gold dragon in my campaign but have powerfully magic charged wing membranes! So here we have it the gaudy gilded Deathsleet! I had an absolute blast painting this great mini! As always your comments are wanted and appreciated!!
  7. Hey guys back with the fearsome Frost Wyrm!! I painted this guy in semi traditional colours! I really hope you like this one and as always comments are wanted and very much appreciated! If anyone wants to add me as a friend I would be honored! I love to discuss painting schemes!
  8. Hey guys back again and this time I painted the mighty verocithrax this amazing figure was very exciting to paint I decided to emulate Koi carp in painting the dragon I feel it fits well! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  9. Hey guys just worked on this dragon today. A young adult silver dragon! I have added a subtle purple and blue haze over the silver to give it a mother of pearl effect! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  10. Hey guys, I have another mini to show off! This time, I used the Pathfinder Red Dragon (89001), but painted it up as a green! C&C's always appreciated! Hope you like it!
  11. A compilation of all the photos shown of him so far, so that those on the fence about him or just wanting to admire him can see all the pictures in one place, without having to flip between different updates! I personally cannot wait to get this guy in hand and start painting him! Full 360 Video! The teaser image, our very first glimpse of the completed thing! Close up of the five heads: View of right side with ruins moved front/Left side view Left Side view (updated pic!) Front view Back view! Size comparisons Photos of the green Photos of the green with the sculptor, Julie Guthrie I hope this is useful for people!
  12. Welcome to my 12 hour dragon challenge, loosely based on Professir Buglips original 7 day challenges. Why only 12 hours you might say? Well, there appear to be quite a few of us who have difficulty stitching together two, much less seven, days of consecutive painting sessions. Therefore, I'm trying to pathfind a challenge that fits for the more time deficient among us! If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, you need to check out the latest one to accept the challenge, OneBoot's Crazy Too Kaladrax WIP. The goblin's challenge is to paint a large centerpiece figure (Kaladrax, Dragons Don't Share 2, etc) in seven calender days. There are several rules that go with it, which you can read in the WIP linked. Since this is a different challenge, a few twists are in order. So, my rules for the 12 hour dragon challenge are: 1) No using a brush larger than a standard size 0. The Professir is going to codify this shortly, but roughly 10mm long is all you get. 2) The brush you select is the ONLY thing that is allowed to apply paint to the figure. This means just one brush! Dry brush, if you dare. 3) You have only a straight 12 hours from the start of the challenge to finish. Any breaks, meals, family outings take away from that time. Plan ahead. 4) The only prep that is allowed beforehand is boiling and setting the figure (if in Bones), fit checking the parts, pinning the legs if needed, and making accomodations on the base by drilling holes for the pins. No mold lines may be removed, no primer applied, no gaps filled, and no other work on the base is allowed. 5) Paint must be applied by only the brush bristles. No finger painting or using the handle of the brush to dot the eyes. 6) Brush may not be altered, other than from normal use. And bristles that fall out are excluded from eligibility. 7) Single painter only, no teaming up with someone to work in shifts. 8) The figure must have pigmented paint on all visible surfaces, less minor, incidental gaps where it is joined or based. It's a bit of a large set of rules, but I've been trying to find ways to "cheat" at Buglips' challenge for a while, so I've had time to think about it. I was thinking about Livestreaming on YouTube, but I think I may skip that. If there's interest, I did manage to figure it out. I have to cut it up in several blocks, and there's no point in filming me eat lunch or dinner. But let's start with the beginning picture, and then I'll see you at Monday, 5/30, at 8am (Mountain time) for the start of the challenge.
  13. Well, I finally did it. I painted a dragon. I've got T'raukzul and Stormwing both coming from the Kickstarter, and a Deathsleet and a Blightfang here still waiting for me to be brave enough to apply paint to them. I feel more confident about that now that I've done Ebonwrath. It's a pretty traditional color scheme, I know. I don't have a light box or anything fancy. Just my phone. Hence the crappy photos. I'd like to base him sometime. I'm thinking the wetlands from Secret Weapon. Put him in a swamp. I need more resources though. And I'd need to practice on something smaller to make sure I don't muck it up. Anyway, c&c welcome!
  14. This is my second submission today I have been prettying this one up for some time and feel it is ready now I am really pleased with this one!
  15. Anybody who has followed one of my other WIPs knows just how slowly I work. The Warlord faery I painted for ReaperCon took me months to produce, and it is smaller than the average 28mm figure. It should, therefore, be completely reasonable for me to wander off and sketch out this diorama concept: Right? My plan is to try to build a two-piece diorama around Narthrax and Barros on Tempest. The two sculpts are practically begging to be placed in some kind of classic knight vs. dragon battle for the ages. This will be my first real diorama, but I figure the two models have a clear, iconic story built right into the sculpts. All I have to do is avoid screwing it up. So far, I have done some dry-fitting, and I have started to clean the mold lines from Narthrax. My current plan is to bring Narthrax up to a "paintable" level of preparation, and then do the same for Barros and Tempest. All that's done, I will work on the base. It's going to take some engineering to make a base that will support both figures nicely. Right now, the plan is to build this thing on a wooden 8"x10" oval base that I picked up at the local craft store. I expect to work on this project off and on for quite some time, with the hope that I can find way to transport it to ReaperCon 2016. (Air travel may be a problem there.) Let the madness begin!
  16. This is my Here be Dragons! Entry, in MORE than four pictures, for you to comment on. C&C is more than welcome. I tried a lot of things, most of them new to me (OSL, TMM, NMM, dry pigments, smooth gradients, pushing the contrast more and more and moooore), but I am very very happy with the results! Here you can check the long WIP thread. A lot of my ideas are exposed there. Thanks for watching! Edited to add the Diorama Entry Thread intro story: ---------------- Princess Arleine was not a happy girl. She was an enthusiastic, over-the-top 114-year-old child, daughter of Marvran Whitecrystal, Lord in the Mountain, God of the Clear Hills. She was master of the Light Arts, she was full of ambitions, and she wanted adventure. Yet, she got a retinue. Her lips pouted, her golden braids hopping up and down as she sped down the dusty path, trying to leave her companions behind. Grynn Redbeard, her father's blood-brother, sworn to protect Whitecrystal's childs - a child she was not!-; Thoran Rockhand, the grisly Ranger of the Realm; and the most annoying of the bunch: Mailsi Amberflame, Daughter of the Hammer, Warrior. Warrior. The thought made her kick a little rock downhill. She could not show her pretty nose outside without a retinue, but Mailsi... oh, Mailsi got to train with the warriors. She got to carry a big, heavy, impressive Chain Hammer. Arleine turned around, and stick her tongue to Mailsi. That the muscular dwarven lady warrior was just that moment backwards to her was a... happy coincidence. "Don't go far, kiddo!", shouted Grynn, and Thoran grimaced. It was the worst thing you could tell the Princess. Not the "stay put" part, she was used to that... the other word. Arleine snarled and started to run. Downhill, into the caves. Into the dark. About 10 seconds later, she was shouting. And running out of the caves. A gigantic dragon stepped out, leaping and trying to pin her to the ground. The princess took her blessed hammer out, decided to claim the victory of a Dragon Tooth, but then saw Grynn running towards her, and Thoran shouting "Move!". And Mailsi already preparing to swing, twisting her body around and making the big Hammer head gain momentum. The dragon took her breath in, the eyes glowing, the nostrils spouting little flames, like fire-devils dancing on her snout. Arleine grimaced again, and raced up the outcropping. The flame blast arced in the sky, but she turned, planted her feet and raised her weapon. Raised her Will. "For the White Crystal. For the Mountain!" -------------- (all paint! I am very proud of the highlights and shadows on the back and wings!)
  17. Painted up for a good friend of mine, a 'quick paint' of my character Cypheros the lava dragon (quick paint only because it took about 3 days )
  18. Hello again everyone. I've been working away at trying to improve my painting. Reaper Bones 89001 Pathfinder Red Dragon This is the model that made me place my first Reaper order and get back into painting. I've started using sand for basing again and I really enjoy the fine texture it gives. I tried using sealer to "save" my work a few times on this model but I never ended up removing my mistakes, instead I just painted over them. I think this has left some of the details a bit gloopy (e.g. the horns). Overall I am pretty happy with it but I would love to hear any comments. Once I know he is done I am going to Dullcote him and then put some gloss on his tongue. RAFM Durnaoth Elf Halberds and Ral Partha 03-209 Elf Standard Bearer I bought these off eBay not really knowing what they would end up looking like. I find the standard bearer looks a little goofy (reminds me of the Planescape Torment character models) but I really like the Halberdiers. They were weird to assemble, as they were molded with their right hands attached to their thighs. They had to be cut off and their arms bent into place. I still feel like there is a little something missing. Again, any feedback would be great. I am planning to get some gloss spray (Krylon maybe?) for these guys and then I will dullcote them. I will test that on the standard bearer first. My fiancee wants to set them up with the dragon somewhere in our apartment. Crucible 91-221 Orc Eagle Knights Another eBay purchase where I had little idea what I would be getting. I was really excited to find out that these are orcs with an Aztec spin. They are almost where I want them but I still have a few things left to do. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
  19. I've decided to take a leaf out of Drifter's book, and do a WIP thread for my Reaper order that finally made it home to me (after sitting in my local post office for over a week, due to an oversight related to import duty) =] My hoard isn't quite as impressive as his, as my order contained four minis for somebody else (postage to the UK is frightening, so we always do big orders, and club together to make it work out if we can't afford enough individually) and therefore those aren't here =P I've got the following.... 77190: Nethyrmaul the Undying 77240: Ingrid, Female Viking 89031: Whispering Tyrant 77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian 77205: Alistrilee 77048: Mocking Beast 77240: Skeleton Guardian Sword 77241: Skeleton Guardian Axeman =] Now, Imma be swapping a couple of my skeletons with Drifter, so that we've both got more variety going on and while he's got Dragoth, I've got the Whispering Tyrant for the leader of mine. Nethyrmaul though, is the pride of this order. I'm delighted to finally have him sitting in front of me, and I've assembled him dry for the time being, just so I can admire his ridiculously tall splendour. He needs a bit of filing here and there to make his pegs sit better, as he's a bit of a pain to pop together for me, but I'm super happy with him and can't wait to get on with painting him. Not sure where Imma keep him, but y'know, what do. However, much as I wanna paint him, Imma start by cleaning him up, and then I'll try and paint I think the Mocking Beast tonight, coz it's just a delightful little thing, haha. Nethyrmaul may, however, get his base coat on tonight.
  20. Another of the fellows who didn't fit in a group, the Great Green Bastich and Wrecker of Ships, Vyraxxus the Senile (also known as Deathsleet when he's, you know, feeling less green):
  21. My last dragon, before Bones 3 arrives, finally painted. (Not including the one dragonling I still have.) Hard to get a picture of him.
  22. I am going to start this here as it's my hope to paint him for the holiday season. But the first and most important question is "what is it?" I received it as part of a parts ant pieces auction and have not been able to place the miniature. It has no markings to indicate caster and has a reresin body with metal head wings and horns. It's not a small piece either. Does anyone have some knowledge about where he came from?
  23. Just finally catching up on some of my photos for the group. I have been learning to use a new camera and there are definitely some ups and downs. we will see how they look as time goes on. The dragon is one of the Impact Chibi series. I took a more standard tone on his paint job, including some wing fades and a little more classic painting, mainly because I could not get the sharp color changes to work on him for some reason. here he is, I hope you like him...
  24. Got in the Colossal Red dragon so I did a set up for fun. Our minis from our adventuring party "negotiating" with them, The female leader has her faerie dragon talking to the red. Fun!!!
  25. So, I'm posting my VERY LATE Secret Sophie Project now. Please enjoy it! GF
