  1. 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!

    Spent just about a week on this one. It was fun. My GS work sucks but it's done. C&C welcome.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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 small and very flat. I might go back and do something but for now just blue is where this young guy is. I did find the base to be pretty cool. Hope you like him
  6. 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

    5 dragons

    Here are five beauties.
  8. Another 3D print that I’m working on, this time a big one. I’ve shoes away from buying/printing dragons for the most part as I have a ton of amazing Reaper ones still to paint (or finish... ) but this one was a freebie of sorts from one of the creators I follow on Patreon. In keeping with my clear resin tricks, I whipped up the base really quickly and then stalled on how I was going to paint the actual dragon... oops! I masked off the crystals and plugged the holes for the feet and primed it with a mix of brown and grey Vallejo primers, drybrushed it with a tan followed by a tan mixed with white and then it got a series of Vallejo model washes (green, grey and dark brown). I then peeled off the mask and gave the crystals a quick coat with Tamiya Clear Green. For the actual dragon, the plan now is to paint the heavier scales like the base with the softer belly and flesh being brown. Like my recent plague doctor bust, I masked his eyes so they will be the same green as the crystals on his base. I toyed with putting a light in his head as well, but seems to be doing that to everything all of a sudden, and skipped it. in case you’re wondering about the pink, that’s what mixing the Vallejo red and grey primers did. The base was that colour before the drybrush and washes. Hoping to get some more work on the brown and get the drybrush done on his scales this weekend. That’s going to be a lot of drybrushing!! Thanks for looking.
  9. So we are nearing the end of the road. This is the very last of the 163 miniatures in the Bones 4 Core set! Last but not least! Or more accurately, Last and the largest by far! Who am I? I am known as Millstone Shover, Barrel Drinker, Demon Rider and Camel Puncher! But I am no one when compared to you, O Gauth the Magnificent! Gauth the Golden! Gauth the Tremendous! Gauth the Unassessably Wealthy! Gauth the Mighty! Gauth the Terrible! Gauth the Stupendous! Gauth the Tyrannical! Gauth the Impenetrable! Gauth the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities! Gauth the Does Not Fit In Standard Shelving! Tommy Too Tall here is about 27cm / over 10 inches tall! I made him a 125mmx100mm base to keep him stable. I had some drooping woes that I have documented in my fixing Droopy The Dragon post back in November of last year. I can categorically and firmly state that the fixes have ....worked! Gauth has been standing tall and proud these last few months with no sign of any renewed droopage. I experimented with removing the knee-brace for a while, but then he sorta slumped, so I put it back. Painting: Black undercoat. Scalecolor Navy Blue all over. When dry, I drybrushed the green parts with Citadel Base Waaagh Flesh, Vallejo Game Color Jade Green 72.026, and Jade Green mixed with Scalecolor Hellbound Flesh SFG-16 in two steps. The Blue parts are done in the Navy Blue drybrushed with Army Painter Crystal Blue and Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue 72.021. This was then mixed with Hellbound Flesh, with pure Hellbound Flesh on the top. The Yellow parts are Vallejo Model Color Khaki Grey 70.880 with Citadel Layer Iyanden Yellow, with Scalecolor Hykey Yellow (a yellowy bone) on top. Plus some small details such as eyes, tongue and teeth in other colours I do not remember which paints I used. So now the task is done! Challenge complete! Achievement unlocked! But the road goes ever on and on... #7 Gauth the Dragon Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Bonesium PVC 125x100mm base. should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
  10. I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc. But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome! C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. " 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.

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Painted to match my Warhammer Vampire army, using old Citadel Foundation paints and a lot of Agrax Earthshade wash
  18. 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!
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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 major. Today I had about an hour to play with it, so I spent it using some Stynlrez to prime and sketch in my colors. Still really rough, and not really the blue-black I want to end up with, this is mostly a color sketch done really fast work the airbrush so I have something to start with. Pretty much everything from here will be brush work. I'm a little on the fence about the yellow in the membranes, though I really like it on the belly.
  24. 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.
