  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Although I question the $389 price tag
  11. 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:
  12. "On the coast of the vast sea there once stood a mighty kingdom, its walls of white marble shining in the gleaming light of the sun that would rise over the sea every morning to bathe its pearly walls. Great, colorful mosaics decorated every flat surface and fabulous ornate carvings were etched wherever possible But it was not to last...for one day, with the rising of the sun, there came a great wave. A leviathan of the sea rose from the raging froth and breakers, a horrendous skeleton! It was encrusted as if it had once been part of the sea floor, and this monster tore the city and broke its white walls. Upon its ruins he crouched, reclaiming land that had once been his, centuries before..." I wasn't sure what I was going to do with Kaladrax when I first got him...there several ideas poking around in my head, but I definitely knew I wanted to do something different. The softness of the rocks, the smooth roundness of them, made me think of erosion. So I thought....either desert themed, eroded by constant sand-filled winds, or coastal themed with the tide line. I went coastal. I bought my very first batch of green stuff and tried it out, and then heavily decorated Kaladrax and his base with it to make sea weed, sponges, star fish, and more. I added sea themed mosaics to the white marble of the ruins, and a few old chains. Stingrays, a crab, octopus, and a few sea gulls are hidden around the base as well. Work in Progress thread and pictures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/53995-siris-kaladrax-n-nethyrmaul-wip-thread/ His basing project [ongoing] http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56564-basing-coraldrax/ Sorry for the many pictures! **This was done purely with craft paints from Hobby Lobby!**
  13. And people might have been wondering what I have been doing. and then again they might not. Wound up with some issues that kept me from doing too much painting (read slump here) but with 2 new parties starting up, i have at least produced the miniatures for the first party and then a few more... First up: The Dragonwraught Magelord by Stonehaven miniatures. Very nicely done and pretty dynamic for stonehaven right out of the box, this is the party sorcerer and the financier for the party. Hope you like him. comments, questions, and critique are welcome, although these are just tabletop standard
  14. Ok so I've started on one of the bigger dragons amongst all the smaller stuff that I've been working on as well (like skeletons mostly) and figured I might as well put up an Open WIP thread for him. At this stage I've assembled and removed the mould lines I saw with a mix of hobby knife and file. I noticed a couple of extras when I was putting the base coat on, but none of those are problematic enough for me to go back in with knife and file again to remove. I then glued him to a bit of cork. I then glued the cork to a 50mm square base (resin blank in this case, but plastic would do just fine as well), and because Deathsleet likes to lean forward and touch his toes with his forearms I glued the tip of his tail to the resin and cork with the help of a little boiling to get it flexible enough. This results in a dragon that is happy to stand proud. Gaps around the wings are filled with (Atelier) Moulding Paste (available in various brands from art suppliers for far less than GW charges for liquid greenstuff), you can see this on the base as well covering the join between his "broccoli" bases and the cork. Then I got out the LED blue and slathered it on. I'm still not certain what I'm going to do with the belly so it was left plain Bones. I'm not too concerned about the obvious brush strokes in the wings or the inconsistencies in the scales at this time. This colour is essentially the "deepest shadows" and so I'll be going over the whole model with drubrushing and so on as I work up to the mostly white dragon. One thing I'll note at this time is most art of white dragons actually uses grey as the base colour (stone grey for example from the KS paint kits) rather than white. You could actually readily paint Deathsleet in Rainy Grey, then glaze/wash with black ink and then drybrush back through rainy grey to pure white. This is far more in keping with the usual DnD/Pathfinder white dragon art. Anyway here is where my Deathsleet is at now; (Oh the red and cork is because he doesn't fit inside my shoebox light box....)
  15. My entry for the Spaceship Superstar contest So this is using 77108: Shadow Dragon! Thanks to Ub3r, he provided me the mini for me to compete in the Sci-fi contest. He also provided the idea of a space dragon =P "The planet V-138, a great swirling gas giant located third in its solar system, was ringed by seven moons. Of these moons, only one was inhabitable with a sentient species populating it. These were the Draconis Galaxis, a winged, four legged alien resembling the mythical dragons on Earth. The Draconis Galaxis is not a dragon, but instead an alien that resembles the mythical dragons known by humans. The ancient tales of dragons are actually envoys of Draconis Galaxis trying to make contact with the humans on Earth, but getting mistaken for great beasts and slain. Their planet is in almost constant darkness, with the 'day' being just a low-light change to the landscape as they orbit their planet, so far from the heat giving sun. The Draconis Galaxis therefore has evolved a great tolerance to cold and excellent eye sight to see through the gloom. The patterns of their wings and sides mimic the bright stars and galaxies visible in the skies of their planet, allowing them to fly unseen by prey below." his WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56334-space-dragon-wip/ Took a fair few pictures, I'm very proud of how this guy came out. His eyes are painted off the Ring Nebula, thanks minigrinder!
  16. So this is using 77108: Shadow Dragon! Thanks to Ub3r, he provided me the mini for me to compete in the Sci-fi contest =D Space dragooon! I made up a little story! "The planet V-138, a great swirling gas giant located third in its solar system, was ringed by seven moons. Of these moons, only one was inhabitable with a sentient species populating it. These were the Draconis Galaxis, a winged, four legged alien resembling the mythical dragons on Earth. The Draconis Galaxis is not a dragon, but instead an alien that resembles the mythical dragons known by humans. The ancient tales of dragons are actually envoys of Draconis Galaxis trying to make contact with the humans on Earth, but getting mistaken for great beasts and slain.

The Draconis Galaxis therefore has evolved a great tolerance to cold and excellent eye sight to see through the gloom. The patterns of their wings and sides mimic the bright stars and galaxies visible in the skies of their planet, allowing them to fly unseen by prey below." Pics! Edit: Giving up on the diorama idea. I am really unhappy with the base and I'm not going to worry about it right now. Changed up the story too =P
  17. Why is he so gosh darn hard to get clear pictures of? Ugh...oh well...here he is, finally finished. My swampy black dragon. He is the Black Dragon, from WOTC D&D Miniature #40055. He was sculpted by Kim Graham and produced around the year 2000 in limited numbers [Thanks Belerophon for telling me!] He was given to my husband in high school by a friend, and after we married we found him in a box and my husband asked if i could touch him up, as he had some scratches and chips. While I was getting ready to do so, I noticed his details were, in general, just horribly mucky...so I decided to strip him and repaint him entirely. You can read that epic adventure in his WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55156-siris-black-dragon-disaster/
  18. So this guy is from a D&D game, Castle of Ravenloft. A friend owns the game and asked last spring if I would paint all the pieces. I happily did haha. I'm only sharing him though because he came out so well ^^ I went for a ancient fossil color on him
  19. So when I first began painting in the mid 90's I came across a figure of a robed female and a dragon and it had a stone with celtic knotwork carved into it. I am trying to find out who made this figure so I can obtain another one. This was now17 years ago that I bought it so the lady's clothing I am unsure about, but the stone and the dragon I remember. It also came in a blue box and may have been 50mmish. I thought it was a Reaper figure but I don't see it in the NIC catalog. There is a figure similar to the one I'm remembering but it doesn't have the stone. It does have a lady and a dragon though. It's this one: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02452/sku-down/02452 Has anyone seen a figure like this? It may have been a limited edition but I can't remember much more about it now. Thanks!
  20. So, GenCon is upon us once more and I'm going. As usual, I have been asked to Repaint a few D&D Minis for DDM Guild events there. So, I present my PlastiCrack Prize Support! A fairly simple Repaint of the Large Gold Dragon. Was the first done so it got a bit of dust on it. I have cleaned that up now. The Horned Devil was originally a dull Gray and black. I've fixed that! Also, added a bit of Freehand work making Tattoos on his Wings and Tail. The Gorgon was completely Steel colored for the stock paint job. I changed that quickly! Used Gamma Shielding Gold and Some steel colored paint for the metals and did a light wash of brown. The Standardbearer had one color of armor, dark steel originally. I could see several Details that were not accented well. I improved that. I did have trouble taking pics of some of those details due to the pose. My Camera want to focus on the sword or the flag when I wanted it to focus on the face or Chestplate. In the end I barely got three pictures to come out good. And the Masterwork! The Berserk Flesh Golem was one of those D&D Minis that didn't look like the average Pre-Painted hordes. Or it would with a Decent Paint Job:P There are a LOT of Details on this sucker! And he looks so much better than before!! I had to get a bit of help with this one, though. I was having trouble with Washes due to this things wealth of details and the fact that I had not used a Blue wash on a non-blue background before. The Owner of my FLGS, Gatehouse Games, kindly vollunteered to give me some lessons after I nearly ruined this guy the first time with that Blue Wash! Tim Gatehouse demonstrated the technique on the Pants and Left Arm, then I finished the rest. Thanks to Tim's help, I got done in time. GF
  21. Did I say red? I'm pretty sure the box said "blue"... It's mostly done except for a couple of minor fixes and a possible breath weapon. Other photos here.
  22. I painted Janan for the 2014 Summer Miniature Exchange. She's now safely in the hands of Quintangible. This was my first time trying to do eyes with color and reflections. The white leather was also an experiment. I definitely need to improve my highlighting.
  23. Red fire dragon painted up as my gluttonous, arrogant, fat Gorevander
  24. This was my first mini painted with Reaper paints and not cheapo Acrylic craft paints from Hobby Lobby =P
