  1. This past weekend I got the idea to improve my painting efficiency by having some small tabletop quality pieces on the painting desk that I could switch to and spend a few minutes on while I wasn't working on my main project. I prepped the four dragon hatchlings from a previous KS, and then ended up painting one of them instead of what I had planned to work on. True to concept, it is painted to tabletop without using any techniques such as blending and simply relies on the placement of colors. My assumption was that this mini will be viewed at a 45 degree viewing angle or higher and that was how I was looking at it while I painted it. The side view isn't quite as nice looking.
  2. The problem at hand lay in a wealth of excess: too many dragons and too much paint. I have no idea where the extra Bones fire dragon came from; I'm assuming a Kickstarter, since I don't remember buying an extra. And every time I order something from the factory, one of the lovely people in Shipping throws in a bottle of pink paint. It's not always the SAME pink... but I now have several bottles each of bubblegum pink, Breast Cancer Awareness Pink... this is not normally a bad thing, but I don't USE a lot of pink except in flowers, mouseling tails and ears, and occasionally clothing. Admittedly, I do a lot of mouselings, but still... And then Berni hit it yesterday: "Why not do a Bubblegum Dragon?" ...and so the experiment began. This dragon sits now on my workbench, scrubbed clean and wearing a fine coat of brown liner. I didn't bother posting a picture of the dragon in question, because he's boring, and still not dry. But I will keep you informed. After I work the cricks out of my neck, that is...
  3. This is Micro Art Studio's 30mm Sam Vimes, a grizzled but goodhearted veteran of the Ankh-Morpork night watch in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. In Vimes' first book, "Guards! Guards!" after Vimes narrowly escapes a dragon attack he is nursed to health by the goodhearted, lonely and ridiculously aristocratic Lady Sybil Ramkin, a swamp dragon breeder from the poshest of families. Swamp dragons are pathetic little nervous highly-bred things prone to exploding. The city is being menaced by a much vaster and more sinister, almost mythic dragon. When an angry mob decides to take out its wrath by attempting to massacre Sibyl's pets, Sam leaps out of his sickbed and, well ... And a touch later: Sam Vimes is the other of my husband's favorite characters from the Discworld books, along with Granny Weatherwax. Although this figure isn't as resplendent as Mistress Weatherwax in her evening finery, I enjoyed painting him. As with Granny Weatherwax, I played around with a few backgrounds, trying to put him in a context of the Ramkin estates.
  4. My second converted monster from 2015 ReaperCon conversion class. I took him apart and re-sculpted all the pieces back on to make it blend better, since i'm tons better at working green stuff than i was when i took the class The greenstuff going up the tail is fur
  5. This is the Blacksting Wyvern figure. I'm of two minds about this one. First off, most of the effort went into the basing...which was built up from basla, cork and lots of slate. I wanted a broken mountaintop look, and I think it turned out OK. On the other hand, for the actual figure, I liked everything about the sculpt except the wings. Because of the way they were sculpted, the wings looked very "meaty," not "membranous." In the end I just went with it and painted him like he had a couple of juicy steaks hanging off of his shoulders. LOL. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  6. This is a Young Forest Dragon I painted last year. You can find my video tutorial for the painting project here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-green-dragon.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  7. Some pics of Reaper's Pathfinder Red Dragon. I built out the base to make it more substantial. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  8. 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 )
  9. When the dogs went crazy today, I knew it had to be my exchange mini since all of my mini orders have already been delivered. I was right! I had a package on the porch from the states. I couldn't stop smiling as I brought it in to open it. It was like Christmas! What would be in the box? In the box was a note on top of two bubblewrapped bundles. I couldn't see anything through the bubblewrap! The note told me who my exchange partner was - terminalmancer. It also told me that the figures are 77329 Silver Dragon which he explained he painted gold because "just because"! The second figure is Dark Sword's Wood Elf Goddess (Avatar Form) which he decided to have a go at sheer cloth. They turned out gorgeous! I am going to use them in my game. I think the two of them together could wreak some havoc! Thanks again, terminalmancer! I love them!
  10. Here we go... Starting off by washing everything... IN THE DISHWASHER!! My plan is to get it done in the next month or so... we'll see how that goes.
  11. I guess this qualifies for presentation? Just some cheap prepainted dragon toys on 50mm x 100mm pill bases. Lava base for the Red Dragon ( MojoFun 387214 ) and a ruins base with checker tiles for the Steel Dragon ( MojoFun 387215 ). EDIT: ARGH! Title is supposed to be PREPAINTED, not repainted. The figure's paintjobs are the sweatshop originals.
  12. for the really serious Dragon lover this will only be available in Bronze in small numbers, but it does look smashing https://www.facebook.com/NickBibby.Sculpture.Bronze
  13. My first dragon ever! I'm really happy with how the wings turned out.
  14. I gave up some of my dragon hatchlings to my kids so they could paint minis. They had a ton of fun with it, and were certainly very enthusiastic... The one on the left is my daughter's beautiful and very colourful dragon. She's 4. This is pretty much what I expected. The one on the right is my 9yo son's dragon. It's supposed to be a sort of darkish grey with spattered blood on its wings and head (my son's story is that the dragon rolls in the blood of its defeated enemies, which sounds gross to me but it's not my dragon) and the yellow spots on its head are supposed to be its eyes. I'm not sure what's up with the other colours. I honestly don't know if they're supposed to be there or not. At any rate - no award-winning paintjobs, but a lot of fun, so... yay! Both of them plan to do something more to their dragons at some point so I'm putting these in here instead of Show Off.
  15. 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.
  16. This is continued from my summer thread here. These are my old threads if you want them. there are a few tutorials linked on the last one. Jan-April 2013-14 So, I'm bound and determined to finish this cursedly large dragon! Right, working on the sides from a few different angle: The goal here is to make sure I get enough contrast and also have a gradient from light to dark. The leg: Still in progress... every time I get a few layers down there are a thousand more waiting! The tail: ...and here is the in progress: Still have lots to do but making progress! I did get the torch glued in and I'll up the highlights on it a bit to make it brighter. More soon! Thanks everyone!!
  17. I just finished painting and basing my first true dragon miniature, Blightfang. I painted him over the weekend and did most of the base then too, but added a couple of touches to the base tonight so I could post him. I am happy with how he turned out, though I think I could still do more with the base, now that I see the photos.
  18. This guy was fun to paint. Reminded me of Super Mario Brothers.
  19. Another one of my not doing much with them dragons. He also has a laser rifle. His color is inspired by a dragon I got in my first exchange here on the forums. The person took my love of dragons seriously and sent me one of this guy with a very similar paint job (but no rifle). I did use a wash on him as the base coat did not go between all those scales.
  20. 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!
  21. A new creation in the works ... Dragon Eye 4" long by 2" wide and made from driftwood oak. The piece was found like this. So far I've painted the "lash" with Reaper Black Ink and the "Iris" with Reds and Oranges as well as the Black Ink. A gloss coat covers the iris. Plan to build up the iris in gloss layers to give it some depth. Teak Oil finish.
  22. 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.
  23. I haven't posted anything in awhile, but here's the Pathfinder Red Dragon (in Bones) that I just finished off. This ended up being kind of an experiment, trying stuff out as I went, and I think I learned a few tricks that I will apply to the next largish scaled and winged beast that I tackle. For one, I messed around with inks (from Scale75) for the first time; I highlighted the scales individually, and then put a layer of red ink over the whole thing. I really like the effect it gave, but next time I will definitely go for a lot more shade-midtone-highlight contrast before using the ink to pull it all together. The wings I actually redid several times; I first tried blending but could just not get it to work on those big surfaces, so what I settled for in the end was kind of successive stipling (from Walnut Brown through red to Fiery Orange), and then gave the whole thing a red wash. As this will be used as a grid-based gaming piece in D&D/Pathfinder I put him on a 50mm base. Added some small stones, a ruined pillar from Dragon Forge Design, and a few Army Painter grass tufts. The tail on this mini was really outstretched and elongated, so I actually curled it back in and pinned it to the resin pillar to keep it more contained on the base. Anyway, thanks for looking, and C&C are always welcome!
  24. This is my first really big dragon from the Bones II kickstarter. He is the dragon from Dragons Don't Share.... Nathavarr. I painted him as a green dragon defending his treasure hoard. I hope you like! Mu apologies for the pictures as I do not have a good backdrop to take them against so they tended to be a little washed out. Once I get a good non-reflective backdrop large enougfh I will take more pictures. WIP is here (it has a special backdrop at the end under a spoiler take) http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63532-nathavarr-dds2-as-a-green/?p=1194334 now for the pictures! And the treasure of course (with a touch of Sar Orange amongst the loot) Comments/cheers/booos etc are all appreciated..
  25. As the title says, which is your fav dragon from reaper? That you own that is. Mine is Nathavar from DDS2 because he is my largest dragon and though there exist Kaladrax I could have bought or even Nethyrmaul, they are dead dragons. Second in line is my Nathrax because I think his pose is simply amazing and so animated.
