  1. Hi, I'm continuing my journey to paint the miniatures for the board game Dungeon Saga. This time I completed the expansion "the Tyrant of Halpi". For this expansion, the heroes are facing a dragon and its thralls. So of course, there is a dragon to paint and 2 new heroes: a Halfing Thief and a Human Paladin. (That Halfling! She is so Tiny!!! It almost feels like painting a 15mm scale) As usual, the objective was efficiency for tabletop quality. For the dragon, I experimented with speed painting / laziness on a big figure. I wanted to see how many steps I could skip and still end up with a decent looking mini. So it was primed dark gray, I added a dusting of white from the top (for zenital highlight) and then covered the rest with washes only (no full colour basecoat, except for the blue back scales). For the end-result, the colours are quite muted (there isn't much colour saturation in washes)... It gives a certain style, but I let you judge. The big bonus is that it was painted super quickly (but wahes take a while to dry). I did spend a bit of time building up the dragon's base though... as it was disappointingly plain flat (all the bases, in the game where pre-textured with slates, but not for the dragon )... C&C appreciated
  2. My New London group that Dad and I play with was today, but dad couldn't come because of work. We found the tiefling we were looking for and she gave us a ring that gave the wearer resistance to ice magic, and because I was the only warlock in the party I got 7 scrolls and 3 spellbooks! We went into the white dragon's cave to kill it, and since what happed next was all my plan I wore the ring. I used hex to give the dragon disadvantage on charisma saving throws, but the DM said that the dragon's stats said if it was hit with hex it would get disadvantage on ALL saving throws. I cast polymorph and suceeded but the dragon had 3 uses of legendary saving! I had my party members burn spells with saving throws until it used the other 2 legendary savings, then used polymorph on it again, and turned it into a fish! We dropped it down a bottomless chasm, but the top of it's so small when the dragon morphs back it won't be able to get out. The DM gave everyone in our party a magic item, but chose them by randomly rolling from 1-100, and ended up getting a 100! Because the whole thing was my plan, I was the one who got to keep the Wings of Flying! We each got 140g, 200s, and 4 precious stones worth 800g each. We also got up to level 9, so I'm gaining a spell, my slots are changing to level 5, and I'm getting another eldrich invocation! I can't wait to tell my dad when he gets home from work tonight. I'm really proud that I've proved I can game on my own and still make awsome decisions. Vanquishing a dragon is a much better achievement than getting your entire party killed. And to think I almost didn't go today because mom was worried about leaving my sisters home alone.
  3. Starting to paint again.. woo free time! Base of brown liner and then clockwork brass Silver is grey liner and AP plate mail metal
  4. And finally, my thirtheenth and last finished mini of November 2015, which is the Treespeaker (SKU 112004) from DGS games, modified to hold the Bones dragon familiar from Familiar Pack 77176 in her hand. The casting did not seem to be very good on this particular mini, the details seemed soft and almost non existant (I have not seen this to be the case with other DGS minis), and her face did not turn out that great. I tried a lot of different color schemes until I finally just decided to finish her.
  5. This is my first post in the Reaper forum.Thought I might start with my take on kaladrax. I've never tried to paint anything this big before but I could not resist when I saw it. I bought a bunch of minis(most of the first kickstarter really) from one of my sons friends and there he was in the box. Anyway, I would welcome any C&C or suggestions from anyone. I've been painting for a while but I still have lots of room to improve.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  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. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. My first dragon ever! I'm really happy with how the wings turned out.
  14. Another one of my minis from some time ago. I painted this for my girlfriend. It is suitably displayed in a glass cabinet in the room. I had to fill in large gaps with green stuff. But it has a lot of character.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. So this is going to be COLORFUL It's based on a dragon character of mine. Here's a poem about him: So needless to say, you could also call him a rainbow dragon probably. Going to do my best to make him look gem like. Any tips would be appreciated!
  19. Finished commission for a forum member WIP Thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62992-tiamat-wip/
  20. So this is a commission by a forum member (who can speak up if they want themselves known =P ) to paint a five headed dragon statue up as Tiamat! So two photos, first is her fresh out of her bubble wrap and packing peanuts, and second is her cleaned up, primed, and with a few friends for scale reference!
  21. This guy was fun to paint. Reminded me of Super Mario Brothers.
  22. So I found a UK supplier with okay postage for some Reaper figures - including Ebonwrath, who I've been rather wanting since I first spotted him. So I bought him, and a couple of other bits and bobs, and now I've started painting him. This is the first thing I've painted at home, and so the first thing I've painted without supervision, lol. I've ordered some more paints, because I've got a couple of things I wanna try out, but what do. So um, yes, this thread will follow my attempt at doing this mostly by myself, instead of being able to throw it at Drifter and ask if I've done it right, lol. - So Ebonbothered turned up and was a tad warped in his packaging, but no big deal. Cue my trusty colander and kettle, time to boil and adjust him a bit. His wings had a bit of a weird going on. And now it's the middle of the night and all I've done is manage like half of his base coat. Ew, camera flash, etc. Also, check out my super high tech painting space - a teatowel on my couch and a tuppaware box. Yeah! Black paint is P3 Thamar Black, and I'll be depositing a nice big heap of GW paints on him as soon as they arrive =] Ahh, I feel guilty for posting such a boring basecoat =[ but um, yes, I'll hopefully have my GW paints arrive tomorrow and then I can make him look better and post better things. His wings, despite boiling, are creeping back to form at the moment, so I may bully them back again tomorrow. Once he's fully basecoated also, I'll stick him together - figured I'd just be making work for myself if I stuck him together too early here. Seeing as I've got a whole bundle of dragons coming next year thanks to the Bones III KS, I need to learn to paint them decently >=]
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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..
