  1. At this point I really don't need an excuse to paint another dragon but I like to have an evil spell caster for each campaign I run, you know, just in case. So Alendrax, a young adult red dragon mage came to be. he specializes in enchantment and illusion (lets face it, evocation is sort of overkill for a dragon) and likes to play with his food commanding them to hand over all their possessions, kill or torture those they care for and bring him goodies before eating them when he tires of the game. He also entraps scribes to enchant his spells directly on his wings rather than risking having his prized spells stolen from him. Having been ousted from his previous home by a bigger silver dragon for being a "deranged sociopath" he escaped with only his wings and his life. Now he has settled near our hero's stomping grounds to wreak havoc and chaos as he rebuilds his power to displace Jerseranoth (Joe, the barkeep at the Red Dragon Inn in Port Shaw) and maybe find some spells that will work against that usurper! Anyway Alendrax is one of the first Elmore dragons I ever picked up but I just never got around to painting him. he was actually a pretty fun paint with just enough detail to let me have some fun but not so much that I felt the need to spend agonizing amounts of effort on every scale. I hope you enjoy him!
  2. This is my first attempt back at painting in a while. I decided to try and attempt to paint a model of a dragon based off a character my friend has made.
  3. " Welcome to our first campaign, Monster Families! La Louve 3D offers you this project, a collection of adorable, funny and dreadful miniatures to liven your role playing games. We have highlighted some little represented creatures and their babies! All our models are 3D printable without other supports needed with a FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printer or SLA (Stereolithography) printer.

  4. Keeping with my prior undead dragon being a reanimated metallic, I decided to paint up the Bones 4 Zombie Dragon as a copper dragon. I surgically removed its raised claw to fix an issue I had with my Ebonwrath, and sculpted a ruined claw on in its place here. Decided that the rot in the dragon would be where the verdigris of a copper dragon should be manifested, and went to town. Figure is mounted on a 4" diameter wooden base. Camera images had some trouble getting the color right. The closest are probably the first and last ones. As always, enjoy, and feel free to let me know what I can improve.
  5. Painted to match my Warhammer Vampire army, using old Citadel Foundation paints and a lot of Agrax Earthshade wash
  6. I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.
  7. The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below) You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up. My "huge bony miniature" recipe is: One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash) A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull A large flat drybrush Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.
  8. Hello, all! I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat. She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon. I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure. My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do. I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon. Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc? Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!
  9. This is my Reaper bones Viridius dragon that I call Magnus. This is the largest miniature I have painted and the one with the most complicated paint scheme I have ever attempted. It is by no means perfect but it was a blast to paint! The troll finds out that he is Not the biggest thing on the battlefield. Comments, critiques, are welcome. Thankyou for looking!
  10. Well reposting my work as said,.. This is Alastriel. One of my first try on freehands, Together with her pet dragon Furnace.
  11. Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast. He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
  12. Finally finished something for myself - woohoo! One of the set of Rocky baby dragons from Bones IV. Went with a red scheme on this one. Not going to win any awards with all the mold lines I missed! Was supposed to be a quick speed paint, and yeah, that didn't happen. Anyway, though he turned out pretty good, although the pictures don't show the highlights on the red. Tried three different set-ups and still looks flat here. Ah well.
  13. The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.
  14. A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on. Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish. However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon. pics below the clicks
  15. So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. Anyway, I have a need in some upcoming games for a colossal red dragon as a lieutenant to the BBEG. I'm expecting this to be a reoccurring character, so I want a decent paint job on it. That said, I am not aiming for much more that table-top quality here, and will be using every speed painting technique in my toolbox to crank this one out, hopefully before the next game in mid November. I am also going to use it to christen my new Patriot airbrush and airbrush booth. Last night, I primed the whole model in Brown Liner. It took about 3/4 of a bottle, and I didn't have too much over spray. This is a big model. As I have said in the past, I like trying something new with every project; this one it is the use of an air brush. I want to use this model to develop control and precision both with my Patriot and Sotar brushes. Prior to this, I really haven't attempted much more than priming with an airbrush. Here's a picture of him in my spray booth. Have a great day! Andy
  16. Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running. Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.
  17. Andy over at Heresy Miniatures has done something I thought he’d never do. Launch a second production run of his infamous dragon. Link to the Live Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heresyminiatures/the-heresy-miniatures-dragon-production-wave-ii/description - I know there’s at least a couple of us here who have this dragon from it’s original production run. Haven’t attempted to assemble mine yet. It’s a huge beast of a model and is definitely for experienced hobbyists. I wish Andy all the best for his kickstarter but I am very concerned he’s going back into production on this. The original run nearly ruined him and his company, it’s a long story, and it took years for him to get everyone their dragons. The price for the dragon has gone up since then, substantially so. I really hope he has the financial end of this worked out. Its a great dragon though.

    Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con. Experimented with several brands of metallic paint. Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

    I'm painting again after a looong absence. The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.
  20. My niece has her birthday in a week or so. We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her. I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so... Here is the finished piece. The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got. I thought the upper wings were gorgeous Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook? Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course! So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results. I especially want to work on some tattoo effects. I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well. In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry. And she got the mini today and loved it!
  21. WiP on this too cute baby dragon from bones 4. One of the reasons for my to back. The kids each pick one, and choose their own coulor. The dragon fly is magnetized, and i'm gonna put more magnetes on some other dragons so the dragon fly can hope from 1 to an other baby dragon. ... keep u posted. grtzzz Peepster
  22. ******EDIT : Jump to Show-Off thread Everyone, meet Viridius. He's a hefty boi. No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see. I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look. Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him. So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before. One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work. The question is, what to do? Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course) Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape. The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled. I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water. I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business. So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history) I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
  23. Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!
  24. Hello all! @Echoside_ challenged me to do this! I attached the colors that were rolled and a pic of the dragon lined. Sorry for the short post, but it serves purposes. Cheers! -Z
  25. If your adventurers ever see Fimbul Frostbite they'll definetely feel the winter coming. The mighty white dragon dracolich rules its frozen wastes with a (rotten) sharp claw and twisted magic! This is my rendition to the "zombie dragon" from Reaper Bones IV. Decided for a cold palette to take advantage from the link between death and ice that Game of Thrones so wisely stablished over eight seasons till its apotheosic... ehm. Well, till its peculiar end. If anyone wants to visit my insta gallery I'll be honored ^^ its @albertnyarla
