  1. Well, I did it. We now have a cute little Christmas scene with mama Blightfang and her wee ones getting ready for the holidays! A little early for some holiday cheer but it was fun Learned a few things: don't use wood glue to hold down snow it gives a disturbing yellow cast. Blightfangs scales are actually leaves, making her more of a forest dragon than a classic green, and I think one of her children was adopted... I really had a lot of fun with this, even if it wasn't my best work. It came out well. I really like the red and teal fades on the wings. I hope everyone enjoys this little window into the holidays... and one more thing. Although it shows off the teal wings really well and it's an adventurers favorite view, the backside of a dragon is not the most exciting!
  2. whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.
  3. I Don't have much to go on with this dragon. its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever. the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8. other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here. hope everyone enjoys!
  4. What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame? This is Ollie. Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams. Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy. I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon. The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off. Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box! So without further ado:
  5. yet another dragon. this one is an old piece i had most of and decided to go with what i had rather than trying to find the basket. A fun little piece that I tried to do up as a sky dragon. My first attempt at a starscape on the back of the wings to give them some interest. Hope everyone enjoys!
  6. Here is my take on the Red Dragon. This ended up being quite a bit more challenging than I first anticipated. Good practice for February. I can’t wait to get started! As always C&C are more than welcome!
  7. To continue the thought I moved on to another that has been haunting me from my shelf of shame; the platinum dragon from the Grenadier dragon lords series I have to apologize for the phone pics but I had to rush and my wife's business has sort of taken over the spot I keep my light box
  8. Let's start the season by cleaning out my shelf of shame and accomplish something I've been meaning to do for the last decade or so.... One of my first big miniature accomplishments I completed as a teenager was the complete painting of the first dragon lords circle by Grenadier the year it came out (in case any of you were wondering how old in actually was) Well I found the set when I was going through my parents things and I wanted to try and do it better with my new skills and paints... it took about 3 years it accumulate a second set and then the project got delayed after I completed the black, green, red and white. Mettalics can be difficult... but no more. This year I will finish the council! So with some renewed interest I took my gold of the shelf and went after it over the holidays, doing the upper scales in Scale 75 metallics and the belly scales using the reaper NMM paint set.
  9. So I plan on making an order soon and besides the cool duck warrior that just came out, I was thinking of getting a dragon. What bones dragon (under 30 bucks) would you choose as a first BIG dragon?
  10. The dread beating of wings brings a chill wind to the land. A 3D print, this design is "The Father of Frost" from The Lost Dragons, a Kickstarter project.
  11. Here's my recently finished 3D print, the Zombie Dragon from "The Lost Dragons" Kickstarter
  12. In the Storm King's Thunder campaign I'm playing in we've had 2 encounters with an ancient blue dragon named Iymrith. I don't have a painted blue dragon... And my very pregnant DM isn't going to get one bought and painted before we need her, so... Digging through my minis, I figured Narthrax was as close as I've got. It was going to be blue anyway (or dessert sands brown) so that was my top choice. I also thought about the wizkids dragons, but the FLGS only had the green, and I wasn't all that impressed with the sculpt. I'd rather drop $30 on another Narthrax if I'm gonna paint a brown one in the future. Tonight I pulled her out, scrubbed her down, and started working on her base. She could probably for on a smaller base, but with her wingspan, and the fact that she's an ancient dragon, I figure she deserves it. and the cork will give her some extra height. It helps her look even bigger as compared to Blightfang! More to come!
  13. 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 snakes, lizards (and the occasional amphibian), and habitats before settling on some patterns. I spent a few more hours cleaning up mold lines and convincing myself that I don't need to resculpt these perfect heads! Red - Fire Skink Black - Lace Monitor Green - Green Iguana Blue - Blue Tree Monitor White - Blue tongue Skink Body - Fire Skink This Boelen's Python didn't make the cut since I settled on lizards, but look at that good son! He's going to be my black dragon one day. The red fire skink will be inspiration for both the red head and body. It has so many amazing colors that will help bring all the faces together. I'm thinking the wings will be muted on the underside to match the black and white heads and more fire skink on the top. This means the black and white heads need to be the middle level heads - there's a beautiful curve from them leading to each wing. My tentative color blocking. Good enough for an art gallery, yeah? ;) Chapter Two 7 November. I spent over three hours this afternoon pinning, gluing, and green stuffing specific sections. The wing gaps and one of the legs are pretty rough, but the head scales perfectly cover the neck scales! Almost like it was planned. Chapter Three 8 November. I am still prepping. There is still barely enough done to warrant a forum post. All I have to show you are stabby holes in my hands (yes I will be using a holder/lazy Susan when painting, but I need all the angles while sculpting). Either I got one that was a little uneven or I'm just way more picky than some folks, but I have had a ton of gap filling to do for the legs. How did some of you do this in 7 days?! Someone send me rations and supplies to survive!
  14. ******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.

    He was a lot of work. like a lot. im glad he’s done.
  16. 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.
  17. Thank you everyone! :-) Some new colors!! I'm trying different things :D What do you guys think ?
  18. Been a productive month for me. Animals are springing to life everywhere. Out the “white minis” pile I pulled the Bones Chimera. It’s a quick tabletop level effort, but after staring at it for two years, I just wanted it painted. Since I wasn’t really invested in the outcome, I thought I’d do something a little different, so I went with a purple dragon.
  19. Hello, this time I wanted to share painted miniature, after almost 10 years i got back to painting :D I hope you like it!
  20. Way back in May, I finished a Lava/Magma elemental that I teased as being a practice piece for something larger. It’s been longer than planned, but I’ve completed him, and I’m 99% happy with the results. I introduce the fearsome Marty the Lava Dragon. And one last one with his little buddy for comparison. There are definite differences in how the lava effect played out on the sculpts. I like them both for what they are. Colors used: P3 Heartfire, Magma Red, Walnut Brown, and P3 Coal Black (barely there in the very blackest areas). Technically, I also used Pure White as a base coat and later a couple times when I messed it up badly enough that I had to start over.
  21. I stole some spell effects from a nolzurs beholder who didn’t need this one. Pretty proud of this guy!
  22. Hello everyone i wanted to share custom made statue for painters that i sculpted, Dragon Queen. Hope you enjoy it! UPDATE!! Video :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucTWRfZUP3I
