  1. Dark Sword Miniatures have on their website and their Facebook something interesting: Along with this tid bit: Judging from the comments they had test castings at ReaperCon? Looking forward to seeing where this one goes. *edit* Kickstarter is live now: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/823962857/dark-sword-miniatures-special-edition-elmore-drago
  2. So, this is one of my players' cohort, Talan; a noble from her house. What do you think? :)
  3. I originally ordered the worm and werewolf way before the Kickstarter. I was extremely impressed by the quality and the price. Strangely, the worm suffered from the tacky paint issue where the werewolf never did. I use the same paints and primers on everything. I have re-coated a few minis after reading a few suggestions here and found Testors Dulcote does work at coating the minis and removing the tackiness from finished models. I'll be busy painting for the next year..... EDIT: as suggested, these are the minis posted below (in order). 77006: Great Worm 77005: Ogre Chieftain 77009: Werewolf 77038: Hell Hound 89001: Pathfinder Red Dragon 77063: Duke Gerard 89003: Pathfinder Goblin Warrior 77050: Lizardman Warrior 77058: Almaran the Gold, Paladin 77143: Townsfolk: Undertaker 77158: Arrius, Skeletal Warrior
  4. I'm painting up 77026: Young Fire Dragon as a white dragon for an upcoming D&D game, and I was feeling a little frustrated and wasn't making very much progress, so I thought I'd take a few pictures and toss them up here. I still plan to give special attention to his eyes, mouth, and base. I am considering doing the little wing spikes and tail spikes as boney protrusions in a warmer white, shaded to a pale warm brown? I would especially like opinions on the wings: is the shading reasonable? Are the transitions smooth enough? Also, is there enough contrast on the body? His little cheek-flaps seem especially hard to pick out at a distance. Lastly, does he actually seem to read as white, or just pale blue? Colors are Snow Shadow, Ghost White, and Pure White, so far. (And I acknowledge the double challenge of both painting and photographing white is working against any useful advice I might receive.)
  5. Hello! The arrival of the bonenami was initially elating and then overwhelming. Where to start? Do I dare put aside my terrible craft paint and start relearning how to paint with Reaper paint? I was seized with indecision. After two weeks of avoidance I came to the amusing (to me) decision to just keep working on the stuff in the queue, keep using crud paint while gradually working in a Reaper color here and there, and ignore the Kickstarter stuff altogether until I felt like it. Now I feel better. Meanwhile, here is something I did recently. I wanted to go bright as an experiment: no blacklining, not much shadowing etc. The result was underwhelming but then I made this base out of Liquitex Modelling Paste and just kind of smushed the broccoli base into it while it was still soft to create an appropriately shaped recess. (It's not that I'm lazy, it is that I don't think ahead.) Then, continuing the make-it-up-as-I-go-along approach, I painted it up according to the accidental swirls that emerged in the dried paste. It looks a bit like tomato sauce but it is supposed to be hot lava. Cheers.
  6. This is an open thread for our 2013 Dragon Painting Extravaganza! I started Cinder back when...um...she was released. Yeah, shelf of super shame. Here's what I've got so far. I may strip her on account of I started painting her when I had no light, so now her paint looks super thick, but at least you get an idea of the plan. Ok, feel free to join in!
  7. So, it has finally happened. The other half of the games name has appeared in Encounters. So in responce to this momentous occasion, I Re-Painted several D&D Minis of the appropriate dragon type for the four regular DMs at our FLGS, Gatehouse Games. And of course I'm sharing this occasion with a bunch of Internet people, too. More Pics at the Linky-Link below. http://s124.photobucket.com/user/GenericFighter/library/4%20Dragons%20for%204%20DMs?sort=3&page=1 GF
  8. Here's my last 2 Bones models until the Kickstarter package arrives. Not my best work I don't think, but overall I'm still happy with them. 77026 - Young Dragon This guy gave me a lot of trouble with shading/highlighting. I don't think I have a handle on red yet. I learned a few things, which is good, since this guy was mainly meant as a practice run before the large dragons in the Kickstarter. I'm happy with the overall color scheme, but my red shading is going to need some work. It looks a little better in person than it does here, as I ended up with too much glare from my light. His base is supposed to have a cooled molten lava rock look.
  9. I started assembling Vermithrax with super glue and green stuff last night.. I'm still horrible with using green stuff for gap filling so I'm thinking of taking a page from one of the guys at therpf.com and using paintable silicone caulk for the bigger gaps.. After assembly I've got Cover 2x gray primer and espresso satin for the basecoat to try and go for the dark red/brown look of the original Pics to follow later

    RAFM Dragon

    I was reading an article Bogleech wrote about dragons and their medieval depictions. Basically, he was bemoaning the relative uniformity of dragons. They're usually portrayed in games as big, majestic. Often quite intelligent, magical. Powerful and graceful. Almost not a monster, in other words. But the old pictures done in the MIddle Ages portrayed dragons as hateful, almost pathetic creatures. Dangerous, certainly. Wicked, yes. But also wrong in a way that modern dragons never are. He wanted to know why there wasn't room for both the modern, majestic dragons and the old, truly monstrous dragons. A day or two afterwards, I received a package from eBay. It contained a bunch of old minis. I hadn't looked too closely. It was a good price for a lot of minis. I opened it up, and went through the lot, and I found some real treasures, including this guy. There's a lot of things you can call this dragon, but majestic isn't one of them. If goblins were dragons, this is what they would look like. Painted primarily with Reaper's Christmas Wreath paint. I hope they bring that back next year. It's such an excellent color. Underside of the wings was done with a mix of vallejo livery green, reaper sun yellow, and reaper tanned skin. I went with the blue facial markings to help break up the green. They started with breonne blue and went up to sky blue. I tried to fix the mold line here, but it was just too difficult to get to without damaging the belly scales. Belly scale and back of the wing color was done with a mix of sun yellow, Christmas wreath, and oiled leather. Highlighted with the color from the bottom of the wings. Claws, horns, and other such bits were colored with GW Ushbati Bone, highlighted with some pure white mixed into the bone. Basing was probably the weakest part. I just heaped up the elmer's and foundation dirt flock, and then added some summer undergrowth from GF9 and Army Painter. The Army Painter stuff just kind of looked like bits of broccoli, and it had a really weird, chemical smell. I actually had to move the bin away because I started to feel a bit sick. Dunno what's up with that. I lack Sir Forscale, so here's Sam Ayers for a size comparison.
  11. This is a piece from my private collection. The idea was based upon the famous art work of (St. George vs. The Dragon). I had both pieces in my old parts box. The knight is a 15mm figure from (Battle Systems) and the dragon is an old (Grenadier) piece.

  13. I appologize for the photography. I still have not mastered the art of taking minitures. This guy was fun to paint, but I really am not a fan of the sculpt, I won't ever order one, but if I can find him 60% off in the bargain bin again, i will gleefully snatch him. Here he is, comments, critiques, tips to improve my skills, all cheerfully accepted, along with cash cheques, and all major credit cards.
  14. Here's the other Ral Partha Dragon that I painted many years ago. This one is called Niddhogg the Wyrm. I first mounted it on that round base but then I decided to dismantle it because the real stones I used were too heavy. I think it was also a little weird, making the whole thing looks more like a table centerpiece than a RPG monster. Anyway, I'm still looking for a good idea for a new base, maybe a jungle scene could be nice.
  15. Well, might as well post some of my best stuff. and Sheep-Thing:P Most of my Minis that I'm proud of are ones that I've Mangled...I mean Modified. So here goes nothing... Note: I'm just posting one Pic per Mini so I do not Overload anyones Inter-Webs, hopefully. You can find more pics of each in my PhotoBucket Album linked in my Sig. So that was Sheep-Thing. Made from a couple of DDMs and some fuzzy cotton sheet thing. Was inspired by a player in the Local Encounters group. Her PC was a Tiefling Fire Elementalist that had refluffed her powers as being originating from a Deformed, two-legged Sheep named Snapdragon She had saved. So I made Sheep-Thing for Her. Splug, Goblin Sorcerer and Emergency Ration Supply :P Also, Used for my Goblin Cleric, Itch, that I played during the first Drow themed Encounters Season last year. Itch was Awesome! He had conviced 3 Goblin Minions to follow him at one point. Fed one to an Ogre, One died in battle and the Third, "Meat-Shield #3", Road a Spider that was on Fire into the Drow Torcher Theater as a distraction! Fun Times! Itch was played during the same season as Sheep-Thing was. Behold! My Lazor Beholder! Was a Prize for the DDM Guild Community Draft at GenCon 2012. Another Prize from GenCon 2012 Com. draft. I painted a Clear Plastic DDM Guild rebase as a Shardmind warrior-type. The DDM Elder Blue Dragon Repainted for the 2012 North American DDM Championship! Winner of the Champs won this bugger! Mini is one of the best sculpts in the entire DDM line and seeing it with a decent paintjob proves that. And Damn, that thing took forever to paint! For the "God of War and Tyranny" Bane here originally came with a rather Dinky Mace. So, I fixxed it:P And finally, we have my "Country-Western Cow-Boy":P So, I took a DDM Goristro and Chopped off its Right Arm, repositioned it, then made him a Cowboy Hat, gave him a Tongue and added a little wooden Guitar to his now correctly positioned Arms.

  16. Here's my entry for the winter wonderland single mini. The Bones really do hold detail well. Once I got a good base coat on him, the shading was just like on a metal mini. The paint still has a tendency to become shiny. Having the ability to move and manipulate the wings is really nice. The colors are pure white, sapphire blue, vallejo dark grey and blue-green. No metallics were harmed during the making of this Bones mini! I made the base out of sculpey and that long grassy stuff from scene-o-rama. I don;t like how the thin glazes got chalky, but I'll just be more patient in the future. He's for a gaming session this weekend, so I was on a time crunch.
  17. Iron wind Metals has had this up for a while now and it STILL says "photo available soon". They probably mean "soon" if you ARE a dragon and a mortal lifespan is but a blink. Anyway, does anyone have a picture of this fairy dragon: http://ironwindmetals.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=266&products_id=7008
  18. Hi, I have the new Young Skeletal Dragon (03644) and have begun assembly. After caliing customer support, I was informed that there was no slot base provded for this miniature... So, I have a question about this miniature. What is the tab on the bottom of the rib cage? Is that supposed to be there for a base, or is the sternum, o r what is it? I've contemplated cutting it off and pinning the feet to a new base. I see it the pictures of the painted model showing it, but I'm still not sure. Thanks for any help with this. Aluvial
  19. Practicing different techniques for the Dragon challenge..
  20. Hi everyone, I just started working on this beautiful model. Leorelex was sculpted by Geoff Valley and was released in 2004. For now, I only started working on the putty base. I want to make it look like it's an eroded sea shore. I'm mixed between sculpting waves or using realistic water effect. Should I sculpt green stuff waves like I did for my Karkarius or Scuttlebones, or should I try using realistic water to creats a more transparent aspect?
  21. Hi folks! Finally finished Kaladrax reborn!!!! If you have seen Kaladrax in the shop you will know that he is in fact a drcolich or skeletal dragon. Having already completed a Ral Partha dracolich I decided to try and reconstruct Kaladrax in life. This thread shows the development of the sculpt and below is him finished. http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?37982-Resurrection-of-a-dragon I went for a very naturalistic colourscheme like that of a crocodile. To be honest he looks better IRL than in these piccies. I think I overworked it slightly and perhaps my paints are rather past it so I will have to invest in some new ones before I start on Cang! Overall I think my sculpt is much more successful than my last attempt (the Treasure Dragon). However, I have had a slight problem with the weight of the wings which means his right back leg is slightly cracked. Hoping that the arm resting on the base will prevent further shifting but that remains to be seen. :/. Also the left wing limb is significantly thicker than the right, in part I think due to the underlying bone structure and a few areas in the scuplting were not as well defined as they could have been. The base is made of supersculpy and decorated with various Woodland scenics products and a few bits of dried plant.

  22. Out of the past, one of the ancient dragons from heritage. this one came to me with a missing tail and frill and some "interesting" solder work on the chest. The tail and frill are my own creation with green stuff and magicsculpt. I am still working on my photography and this is just off my bench so the veining in the wings is actually much redder than the picture would show. This little monster weighs about 5 pounds. Enjoy and of course, comments are always welcome
