  1. Ok, this is a mini that I made as a joke for a friend of mine. He GMs a lot of games, and has always been a bit fascinated by the fact that the Half Dragon template can be added to almost any kind of creature. Including ones that reproduce by dividing. Truly, the biology of dragons is a wonder. Anyway, he got to completely wreck the party with this Half Black Dragon Gelatinous Cube. I made it by combining some parts from an invisible dragon and gelatinous cube minis (both from Reaper’s Bones line). I used water effect for gap filling and a bit of sculpting, and added a little co
  2. Its been a while since I have put up any WIP on Reaper but I figure I should for this guy. Commission paint job for an old DnD GM. :) Shadow Dragon Custom base and designed to fit in an index card box. I even grooved out the bottom to fit so it would not move. More pictures on that later.
  3. Finished up MARTHRANGUL, GREAT DRAGON. He is the old school pewter version. I started him like 8 years ago, or so, but hated the paint job. So I decided to show how I worked through fixing the painting and basing on my twitch. He weighs about 2.5 lbs.
  4. I have had this dragon "mini" for a while but couldn't decide on a color. I don't have a lot of green miniatures so it's now green.
  5. Hi all you Reaperly fellows and fellowettes! So this time I just finished painting a little dragon, Ral Partha-sized dragon, sculpted by Dennis Mize. As always, I had tons of problems figuring out a color, so I did a red underpart, and then above, I used for the most part the Dark Elf Skin Triad to paint the rest. I took a bunch of photos because with the wings extended like they are, it was hard to get things in focus, so sorry if I put in too many photos, but want to give a good idea of the mini. He's a pretty big mini in the Ral Partha sense, but pretty
  6. Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.
  7. In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon. I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body. I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the w
  8. I saw this ad in Fantasy Modeling #5 back around '80 or '81 and immediately sent off for the Dragontooth catalog, and promptly bought the dragon. I think it cost something like $20, if you factor in the shipping. I knew when the box containing him arrived, because I think the box must have weighed twenty pounds. He was about the size of my hand, five and a half inches from tabletop to wing tip, and weighed approximately fifty pounds. Solid lead. Eight parts; Two wings, torso, four legs, and the top of his head and upper jaw. Wings would NOT stay on with crazy glue, epoxy, solder, o
  9. Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon. Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon. He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.
  10. My Reaper habit started with a Friday night gaming session... "Tom felt a breeze wafting up from the chamber beyond. For some reason the air was hot and heavy, even though he was walking along a passage deep in an abandoned mine." "Ummmm. Sorry, but we have to stop here today." I did not have a dragon mini to use to harrass Tom. A salt shaker just does not have the same drama as slapping the correct monster mini down on the table. I also could not handle everyone laughing at my poor (ugly mishapen) solder dragon. Time to take a trip to the old Lone Star Comi
  11. WIP Thread here I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out. To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has. Here's the plate In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures: I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.
  12. So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees. I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend. Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out. Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future. Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could. Want more? Here's the WIP thread
  13. Continuing to dig up my childhood minis... This crazy old dragon was done back in 1984, I basically dunked him in turquoise enamel. While not sophisticated, the color was beautiful and it's one of my all time favorite sculpts so I left it intact and decided to try adding some details. Results below!
  14. I have wanted to get into painting for a long time and have watched days worth of videos on it. i think it shows in how my first minis came out. the first was a reaper kobold and he looks a bit sloppy. (on the card for the hobby holder i got because i could not find anything else to put him on for the pic lol) next was a blue kobold and a baby dragon, I was still working on how washes work with the blue kobold but the dragon came out better. now the one i did today I am pretty proud of him, for being my forth mini i think he looks really good. he is colored lik
  15. My wife, @Shinma, started to paint the Clockwork Dragon several years ago. It got to a point where the body was nearly done, and the wings and base remained. We had prepared a big gear salvaged from a monitor stand, sanded down by a friend. Then, inspiration and drive was lost and it sat on the shelf, staring at her, unfinished. Recently she allowed me to finish it. I did the wings, small part of the body, along with the base. Here's our result!
  16. Spent just about a week on this one. It was fun. My GS work sucks but it's done. C&C welcome.
  17. I mostly modelled this off Michael Proctor's paint job, and used it as an exercise in learning to push contrast and glaze unlike colours. The photos make the colours seem to little more vibrant than they are in real life. Overall very pleased with the result!
  18. So, I'm not gonna lie. At least half the reason I backed the Rising Sun kickstarter last year was simply to get my hands on this miniature. It was gorgeous, and I've been itching to paint up an Oriental lung dragon. Back in the heady days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition, I got into RPGs, and the Monster Manual portrayed the Gold Dragons as the serpentine, Oriental dragon types, and I have always felt a strong level of appreciation for that aesthetic specifically for the gold dragon. I got the KS about two weeks ago, have already played it twice with friends, and having finished
  19. So my favorite inlaw and I were talking Saturday morning, and she mentioned to me that she really wants me to paint her a dragon. One thing lead to another and before you knew it, she was picking Blighfang out of the bones catalog. She then asked if it would be possible to base the colors on a favorite tea set, to which I really agreed because it's a little unusual I made a quick mock up that got the approval It didn't take me long to get to the store and pick up a dragon.w Last night I sat down and did the assembly. There were a few gaps but nothing m
  20. my second dragon for the month. I didn't put a huge amount of work into this one. one of my goals was to see how well the contrast paints would work to bring out the basic shading and normal tone for the dragon hide rather than having to hand paint all the scaling. It didn't work too badly. I did wind up having to do some significant highlighting and I had to do some additional shading work on the underbelly but overall the effect was pretty good for the time spent. I probably should have done more with the wings but I just didn't have any inspiration for them. the sections were pretty s
  21. Alternative Title: How Morihalda Achieved Maximum Distraction from 14 Other WIP Threads: A Story. Chapter One 6 November. My husband and I went on a date to the museum. We always have so much fun there and learn so many new things! I saw an absolutely gorgeous snake and thought, "Wow, that would be an excellent dragon pattern. OH WOW Ma'al could be five different reptile patterns!!" I'd been wanting to do a skeletal or blacklight theme for him for forever, but I decided those would be better suited on a smaller dragon. I spent some time that night researching
  22. Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time. finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share. He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day. Hope you enjoy him
  23. Here are five beauties.
  24. After two months of work, he is done! I give you ... Narthrax the White. If that's not enough for you, there are a hundred and forty eight more pictures in the WIP thread, documenting his development in excruciating detail. On a side note, as I made the final adjustments and took the photos, I finished watching the climactic episode of Critical Role. And it was awesome.
