  1. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59697-77323-blightfang-blue/ Finished! I was going for a tropical feel to her =P I also painted up one of the dragon hatchlings (technically the red one, but i painted him blue) for her.
  2. Guys!! I painted a dragon!! This is the first one I've ever done, and I don't know how Siri just churns them out. This guy took me the better part of 6 hours to do. I'm still not ecstatic about the wings, but I seem to be having trouble blending this week.. So, yeah. Hope y'all like him! The Hubs says he's going to use him at D&D on Sunday, so keep us in your thoughts. ;) Also, I did a WIP on my blog. Check it out!
  3. My attempt at Wrymgear. I need to get a more neutral background but this is all I have for now. Comments and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  4. Hi everyone, it's been a while. So, after reading this topic about an unreleased sculpt from Sandra Garrity, I decided I should give it a try. Starting with the metal version of the Hydra, I dug the boneyard in search for replacement heads and wings. After some trial and multiple orders, I chose the following heads; Ebonwrath's head and neck for the Black Dragon head, Blight Fang's head for the Green Dragon head, Diabolus's head for the Red Dragon, Stormwing's head for the Blue Dragon and the Karamor's head for the White Dragon head. The new heads don't fit the Hydra at all, they have to be rectified along with the Hydra's necks. I thought of using Deathsleet's head for the White Dragon head but its head is attached to the body part and it is sold at $38... I also tried the Dragon of fire head and neck for the Red Dragon, but they were too small. Finally, I chose the Dragon of fire wings since they were the right scale to match the Hydra's body. Here's my progress so far. They say that when you cut the head of an Hydra, another will grow.
  5. the second of my resolution paintings for this year and (once you get the base coat to stick) a really fun mini to paint. This is another of the chibi dragons from Impact miniatures. this is the "blue" version. The eyes I am not overly happy with. i still need work on my overlays when it comes to adding depth to eyes. Sorry for the camera lighting, me and by little cannon are having issues again. I need a camera that lets me control the shutter speed! With that,here is the mini. I hope you enjoy him. I enjoyed doing the eyes and the "I'm cute, don't hurt me" pose is interesting on a dragon. C&C welcome as always!
  6. So here's the figure that I was doubting on how long I should leave it dry before putting on the sealant. Well got him finished today, and got photos taken, hope you like. I'm kind of finding that dragons aren't that bad to paint after you get a good solid first coat on them because they don't have metal or accessories, it's mostly just a big monster and a few colors. I do keep getting stuck in that spot that I don't give them an eyeball as I end up, like this one, as well as my oriental dragon and my gold dragon, a single color of eye. There's plenty of space on these to give them a slit for an eyeball or something lizard-like, don't know why I haven't done it recently. A black dragon that I painted quite a long time ago has the eyeball painted. I think this is a figure sculpted by Sandra Garrity, just judging by the style, but I could be wrong. I don't really know off hand how old the figure is, forgot to look on his base before I superglued him to the plastic one.
  7. At the request of a few people, I am posting some of the Elmore dragons I completed a while ago. My wife bought me these over the years and I have the first 5. This was the third one I painted and due to the wide swath of wingspan I tried to add some freehand to it. because the wings are pretty straight and full open, the pattern is, for me a little to geometric. i have another so I may try again with something else soontm The snow on the base is gale force nine white snow from a box of flock I have had forever. Enjoy, C&C is welcome especially for what I could do better since the duplicate is on my great bookshelf of dragons.
  8. the final one of my un-pictured Elmore dragons. This one was a lot of work to put together, and I am still not overly thrilled with the final greenstuff work I had to do on the wings. These wings come in two parts because of the deep concavity. This also makes it pretty darn hard to paint. All in all I am pretty happy with how it came out but I think I could do better now. As with dragon #3, there is no basing due to space concerns. Hope you enjoy this one too. C&C welcome. Elmore Dragons 2 and 5 are on my shelf and will be painted soontm
  9. I posted some WIP of this dragon a really long time ago, but never got round to actually putting this in show off. Time to remedy that. This is my take on the Dark Sword Miniatures Elmore Dragon of Chaos which, of course is a recast of the original limited edition Ral Partha Dragon of Chaos. The dragon doesn't have any additional base because my limited display space makes huge bases difficult to deal with. This was one of my first big dragons that I tried to paint. The mini I got was also missing the long spines on the wings so I had to recreate those from green stuff and pictures. All told he took about a year and a half to paint. on the whole I am really pleased with the way it came out, including the fade on the horns. From my point of view though, my favorite parts of this dragon are the expression on the face and the really snake like tail. The tail in particular is just wonderful! Anyway C&C is always welcome and enjoy the show!
  10. the first of my resolution paintings for this year and (once you get the base coat to stick) a really fun mini to paint. This is one of the chibi dragons from Impact miniatures. I tried to do some side lighting on the miniature rather than just top down. The pose is repeated through out all 6 of their dragons, which are basically the same body with different heads and wings. As I have said with others of their product, the biggest issue is getting paint to stick. for whatever reason a combination of washing, sandpaper, and just patience is required to get a smooth base coat, whether it is paint or primer, and the darker the resin, the more trouble you're likely to have. Sorry for the camera lighting, me and by little cannon are having issues again. I need a camera that lets me control the shutter speed! With that,here is the mini. I hope you enjoy him. I enjoyed doing the eyes and the "I'm cute, don't hurt me" pose is interesting on a dragon. C&C welcome as always!
  11. I decided to paint the Fire Dragon as a green dragon for a friend for a birthday present. I wanted to prove I could use red and green brightly and not make it look too much like christmas! Hah! Take that, color theory! I had some extra putty left over from the basing so I used it to make the little snake in the last pic. The base is mostly cork sheets courtesy of Talespinner with some gravel and rocks. The tree is a twig with birch seed leaves. The fern in the front is etched brass from Hasselfree- that stuff is fantastic and so realistic! Highly recommended! The other plants are real moss and reindeer moss from a decorative mix I picked up from Home Goods, I think- something like that. The colors are forest green, viper green, sun yellow for the green elements. The base I primed in black craft paint and then used spattered crimson, saffron sunset and sun yellow, mixing while wet, giving it more of a brown look. For the crest and belly I used spattered crimson, saffron sunset, sun yellow, leather white and blood red (just on the crest and claws.) I'd played with shading with the red on the green and some walnut brown in the deepest shadows, but I found I got the best result just using the forest green. C&C always welcome! Happy New Year!
  12. OK...I have some time today so I'll start this up. Won't actually get to start seriously painting again until September or so, but at least this inital post will be taken care of. So I play Warmahordes, specifically Legion of Everblight (title of the thread kind a gives it away, I know). And I have a sizable force, most of which is still bare primer or only partially basecoated. I'd like to field painted armies, since dice roll better for those (that's how it works, right?), and I feel like it's a good idea to get more painted before I start buying more (who am I kidding). So, since this thread has to start somewhere, a catalogue: Painted now...These have been posted elsewhere, for the most part, but it's cool to see it all in one place. The big dude in the back is a Carnivean. Clockwise, there's a Beast Mistress and four Shredders, two Stingers, a Shepherd, a Feralgeist and pLylyth is in the center. Not shown (was in a display case when I set this up) is a Strider Deathstalker. This represents one warlock and 28 points worth of army. Now...unpainted. First up, the 'Locks, beasts and solos:clockwise from top center: Angelius, Proteus, Annyssa Ryvaal, Forsaken, pVayl, pAbsylonia, two Raeks, Afflictor, Scythean. In the center is a Sorceress on Hellion, a magnetized Carnivean/Ravagore and two Harriers. This is another 65 (or 66) points and two warlocks. Unpainted units:clockwise from top left: two min units of Blighted Nyss Archers and one unit attachment, a complement of five Incubi, a unit of Striders and UA, a full Spawning Vessel and a min unit of Raptors. This is 35 points. And I have a Throne of Everblight and an Archangel. The Throne is the one that actually seems assembled (it isn't, really), and the AA is the pieces around the perimeter of the photo. This is another 29 points. So, all told, that's three warlocks (pAbsy, pLyl and pVayl) and 157 points of Legion, of which one 'lock and 28 points are painted. That's just about 18%, so I need to get cracking. Annyssa Ryvaal is likely the next piece I'll finish; she's almost done as it is. The Harriers are also really close; I'll likely complete all the basecoating on the other wingading beasties while I finish out the Harriers.
  13. So here's a dragon I just finished, an old Children of the Night Oriental Dragon, sculpted by the great Dennis Mize. It's a three-piece model, where I pinned his head and neck to his body and the wings I super glued a long time ago, and when I tried to pull them off, I couldn't so they just ended up with super duper glue. Not a problem, my figures don't get handled too much, so hopefully he won't fall apart. Anyhow, color was my biggest problem and I don't know if in the end of everything the purple was the best choice, but I kind of like how it sticks out. I took a few pictures as well because it's such a long odd-shaped creature and lighting might have been a bit off and focus, et cetera. So anyway, hope you enjoy. This makes dragon number three that I've painted until now. I actually start out thinking it's going to be pretty painful, but really, no metal of which to speak, so just natural or unnatural colors teeth, eyes, et cetera, could be painting something far more difficult. I'm going to I think just superglue him to a wooden base, basically just so he doesn't fall over, because he is pretty top heavy.
  14. Every year I throw a party for my primary gaming group. I usually try to have presents for everyone who is not of my family. This is the third and final dragon for tonight's festivities. Its not the quality Im most proud of but the speed. I got told yesterday that this person was coming and that it was his birthday. Soooo... in 2 hours this went from in its box to painted and sealed. Its a a fair job and it is a rather cute dragon. some of the subtleties are missing but overall, i would not be upset with it on my shelf. The dragon is Valiant's: Dragon with pendant. And yes this is my second run at this mini. I pretty much bought out a run lot of these for painting at art craft shows so I could afford to sell/give them away and still show off my more impressive dragons. Anyway, consider this tabletop quality in 2 hours from metal to sealer, and comment or critique away. I will say, highlights on the rock are brighter than they appear
  15. Every year I throw a party for my primary gaming group. I usually try to have presents for everyone who is not of my family. This is the dark sword reprint of the RAFM reprint of the Ral Partha original white dragon. This also showed up in the set of dragon slavers. Anyway, pretty standard fare here. Tried to expand out and spread the coral on the minis base I think i like it. Spent about 4 hours here too. These may not be my best but with the size of my metal mountain, I have to work some on my speed painting too. Comments and critiques always welcome
  16. Every year I throw a party for my primary gaming group. I usually try to have presents for everyone who is not of my family. I wanted to try something new here and with Dontfear's western dragon thread I thought some "eyes" on the back of a desert style dragon. Played around with some brighter spots of color too. total time painting was about 4 hours for this dragon including the base; C&C are always welcome
  17. I painted this up as a wedding gift for a couple of friends who are getting married this weekend. They go into a glass dome keepsake tomorrow with a little plaque to commemorate the event. The model is an old Ral Partha creation that was recast by Iron Wind metals. I cant tell which version this is as it came to me in a plastic baggie. tried very hard to keep the Blue dragon from fading out. I have a tendency to over highlight leaving the final mini much lighter than I intended. The blue is Prussian Blue by Derivan MINIS paints. One of my favorite blues. The remaining paints are by reaper. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
  18. Here's my Kaladrax. I wanted her to be a blue dragon with a fondness for cold mountain tops. Fill in you're own story for the treasure chest and giant skulls.
  19. I finished this mini a couple of weeks ago, but just used it in a D&D game I'm running last week and got around to take pictures yesterday. My players encountered the blue half-dragon Langdedrosa Cyanwrath in Episode 3 of the Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Like zoroaster100, I looked into Reaper Lizardmen, Reptus and Gaan-Hor warriors for a suitable miniature. I decided for Gulark, because I really liked his halberd. The color scheme is loosely based on a picture in the book. C&C welcome!
  20. these are the Miniatures I painted for the fall exchange. This is the 2013 reapercon Sophie and a small dragon from Valiant. I wanted a group of a dragontamer and her pet dragon. What I forgot to take pictures of is the fact that the sophie is magnetic and there is an additional 30 mm base tucked up under the plinth so that she can be used for play when not on display. Sorry about the perspective on the Sophie, i didn't realize that i was so low when taking the pictures. Note also that the dragon has a squishy ball for his nerves. the dragon is not the best cast in the world but it was fun for a quick paint. C&C always welcome
  21. And here is the final product of my first WIP thread. For me this one was a real challenge. This mini started its painted life as a live paint session mini on Google Hangout (can we do that again?) with a few folks from the Reaper forums. I wanted a dragon that looked like it was rising from the lava itself and cooling to its new form. In a lot of ways, this dragon was perfect for that, lots of depth to the scales and skin to allow for much color change in the skin. this also meant a lot of crevices to be taken of and a lot of blending work. Most of the scales required 4 colors and 2 washes to blend acceptably to me and many washes were used to prevent the dragon from looking like an orange dragon with chicken pox! the wings were another challenge, I wanted wings that looked like they were cooled from the main beast but also had developed a layer of ash over them. I am pretty happy with this effect, but getting ash without it looking chalky was time consuming and took a few tries. The mouth I left as a normal creature, I think it gives the whole thing a bit of surrealism. The base is complements of Happy Seppuku's river basing mold. Hope you like him as much as I do. I get to keep him for the month and then he is off to my nephew Jake as a Christmas gift.
  22. This is a re-paint of a pre-paint of a Deep Dragon. I had two WotC plastic Deep Dragons, but no Green Dragon, so I figured I might as well give one of them a make-over. As well as painting it, I ripped it off its original plastic base and re-based it on a large panel-washer with some epoxy putty and a bit of flocking — the flock does tend to gather dust, but it covers a host of evils when it comes to basing. This, incidentally, is the original factory paint-job. It's pretty underwhelming. I very seldom use dragons in my game. I was traumatized by a session in which the dragon was supposed to be a massive boss-fight, but which turned into complete farce when the dragon was taken out by a single lucky hit from aSword of Sharpness before the fight had even really got started. We were using a pretty vicious critical-hits system back then, so it was really my own fault.
  23. Well, here's the big Dracolich from Reaper. His base is a CD- I sculpted some rocks to match the rocks that the mini was already standing on. I'm really quite fond of this mini- dragons and zombies go together quite well,a nd his rotting flesh was a real joy to paint. You might not be able to tell from the photos, but the red areas are glossy, making him seem more fresh. Also, I posted him to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
  24. Although I question the $389 price tag
  25. I get to work with some of the best folks. This couple wanted a diorama on their wedding cake- the two of them as fantasy RPG characters battling a dragon. After showing them a few of their dragon options, they decided on Nethyrmaul the Undying. (He was my favorite as well). So, here they are all together:
