  1. 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!
  2. 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!)
  3. 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 )
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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):
  7. My last dragon, before Bones 3 arrives, finally painted. (Not including the one dragonling I still have.) Hard to get a picture of him.
  8. 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?
  9. 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...
  10. 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!!!
  11. So, I'm posting my VERY LATE Secret Sophie Project now. Please enjoy it! GF
  12. I present for your amusement, the Mint Chocolate Dragon Familiar: As an avid gamer, I have a few sets of dangling dice sticks to hold my hair up. Since I have been spending so much time painting minis the last couple years, I thought it was time to add something painted to my hairstick collection. And of course... Cute little dragon.... Anyone who knows me knows I bought at least two. Here he is flying in for his closeups: Edit: Autocorrect Fail.
  13. Hi all, I painted a while back the ruins and the dragon Nathavarr from "Dragons don't share 2" but never posted it as I wanted to have the whole set painted, including all the heroes, before doing so. So far, I still haven't touched the heroes yet... But while playing "pretend" with the kids, we started making a little scenery using DDS2 and a lots of dwarves I had around (some Reapers and old GW), all this while listening to "Diggy Diggy Hole". We had a great time and I thought the result was fun enough to take pictures and post. The whole model is coated with a thick layer of clear coat to withstand playtime with the kids, but this gave a weird blue hue to the stonework... The hardest part was to move the whole thing into my light box without having all minis fall over (most of them still did)... and manage to fit the model on the backdrop (the whole DDS2 scenery and the dragon wingspan is huge). So here it is: And Nathavarr by him (or her)self:
  14. 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.
  15. I wanted an unfinished dragon statue, so I used an old metal one I had lying around. The figure is Amber Dragon (2457).
  16. The famous 'Chicken Dragon'. He's a fun and easy paint job plus he looks good on the table. Once you get past the fact that he looks like a chicken skeleton with wings.
  17. My rendition of the Bones Shadow Dragon (Reaper 77108). Sculpted the base to look like a cave environment, and tried to shade the ground as if the dragon was darkening the area. Not sure if that is apparent.
  18. My first dragon. A little practice for KS3! Enjoy edit: So I have to admit I got a little exited playing with new toys last night and rushed the picture process. But I just wasn't happy with how dark they turned out. After another read through of the Miniatures Photography 101 I think I did a much better job today. Now You can see all the detail good and bad!
  19. I painted this one as a super-late Christmas present for one of my best friends. She specializes in Chinese policy, so I thought she'd like the dragon. Here's the front linked due to, um, maybe too much skin? Front View The base is a plastic Arcane from that micro arts kick-starter with CMON. I used deep ocean, fair skin, nightshade purple and leather white for the blue side and then mahogany brown, chestnut gold, palomino gold and buckskin pale for the golds.
  20. So I was gifted this adorable fellow! I decided to go with gold / purple-pink shading, as if it's iridescent perhaps and is originally purple and shines gold when the light hits it
  21. Dragon from 02399 Familiar Pack II by Sandra Garrity and Bear from Christmas Familiars.
  22. This green dragon hatchling was painted about the time as the blue. He was just waiting on some grass before getting his picture taken. A month later I finally worked up the energy to glue some grass to his base, though he is still shedding a bit. Just like the other hatchling he was a quick tabletop paint and not all of his mold lines were removed. Someday he might get to chase some 1st level PCs around.
  23. A few pics of my latest Reaper D&D monster...the Tortoise Dragon. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  24. Started working on my first Bones dragon project today (it's been a busy December, so a little free time for painting is sort of a Christmas present). This is the first time I've tried doing any shading or gradient sort of thing with an airbrush, mostly in the past I've just used it for priming, base coats and varnish. It's a little patchy in spots but I'm pretty happy with the overall result and it went on quick. Vallejo black primer with Reaper Ruddy Leather/Oiled Leather/Burnt Orange triad on the wings. I'll do the rest with a paintbrush, but it was a nice start.
  25. http://lenora-rose.livejournal.com/217423.html One of the cooler things I've seen today (It's been a good day for cool things ...).
