77272 Dragon Hatchling Green - Lady Sybil's Swamp Dragon
Grim posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. This one, though, deserves its own post, I think. I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork. I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here: https://www.twitch.tv/snakediscovery Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!
Hey all, I don't normally post pictures up of what I've painted but this was a special case and I mentioned it in the Randomness thread. Young lady down the street (2nd grade?) is quite the character and takes my razzing her in stride. We had a long discussion about why she was eating bean bags and her denial of that, for example. Anyway, she managed to talk her parents into buying a very large unicorn lawn ornament for Christmas. I don't see how a unicorn is Christmassy, but she managed it, so I felt that deserved a bit of a reward and I should paint her a unicorn that didn't have to go into storage after the holidays. Two bits of background. This isn't the first time I've gifted someone decades younger than me some painted mini figures. The first set was to my two nieces and nephew. We were visiting them for Christmas a long while ago, and I took them all to a local hobby store. The middle niece asked her father for one of the Bones dragons, $4.95 retail I believe, and he wouldn't get it for her because she'd have to paint it. Oh ho ho ho! It was one from the KS's, so I knew I had it. Painted it up after we got home, and decided that the other two would need ones as well. But for them, I did a drider and another unicorn if I remember right. Anyway, gave it to them during our summer visit and they loved them. Then, about two years ago, I found out they weren't allowed to play with them because "your uncle painted that for you". OMG. No, no, no, no, no! That was not the right thing to do! *sigh* They are all older and not into playing with action figures now. Hopefully, they'll grow into it. So I was determined to not let that happen this time, but I ran into a snag. Didn't have the unicorn. Reaper is out of stock. Panic! I've set my mind in motion and Must Have One. I find one online at a store that won't be mentioned, buy it, buy a bit more to fill in for shipping, and wait. And wait. And wait. Took two weeks for them to finally ship! And this was the first of December, but I still have time to paint 'em. And then I wait. And wait. And wait! Now I'm panicking, because it's three days before Christmas, but the package finally shows up! With only the Xwing filler toy I put in for grins. Turns out, by the time they got to my order, gee willerkers, they were out of stock! So rather than contact me, they just shipped what they had. Which I only bought to fill in the shipping tier. Oh, right, right. You should get refunded for those other two. Guess who lost a customer for life? But now I'm panicked and I need a unicorn! I decide that as large of a mountain of figures I have, I should have a unicorn in there somewhere. I find some dragons, and think, well, I might paint those up instead. I also find hippos, but I discard the idea of modding them to hippocorns. Nothing seems to pop out, and I'm digging through when I find some GW Brettonian knights. Hey! Cavalry! HORSE! I start looking through the sprues, and one of the knight head options is ... DUN DUN DUN! Unicorn! Okay. My mind starts racing on how to convert the horse to a unicorn, when my wife comes down to ask me a question. I stand up and the spinner with a ton of figures is slightly in my way, so I spin the rack to see her... and spy the rotten unicorn I tried to buy. I had one already! *insert face palm here* Well, enough exposition. This is a show off thread. Three days of frantic painting, and the below is the result. Her favorite color was dark blue, so that's what the unicorn became. Figured his friends needed to be the two dragons. Rocky I envisioned as a yellow dragon, and the red hatchling... stayed red. Quick paint jobs all around. The blotchy blue doesn't really look that way when held, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Anyway, shut up, show pictures

Dragon Hatchling Bones 77273 Black and 77272 Green
KruleBear posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThe Dragon Hatchling sculpts are cute, but the Bones casts are terrible. Due to this I didn't try to clean them up well and just put them on new bases. Either way it is two more models off the bench and painted to an acceptable toy box level...and so what if I painted the geen one red and the black one green! btw I touched up the splotchy black base rims after I took this picture. Comments encouraged, Mike
Teaching Your Dragon to Fly
Inarah posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis is what I painted for Teskeria for the 2016 Secret Sophie exchange. She said she liked dragons and the colors purple and pink. I started with the green dragon hatchling, I wanted one that looked like it was attempting to fly, and this one seemed to be sitting up and paying attention. I built up a little cork hill for Cassie to be standing on, demonstrating with her staff and her arms thrust wide. The base has little hillocks covered in static grass. The bushes and flowers are real dried miniature plants that I pulled out of my dollhouse supplies. Both figures are removable for play. Hope you enjoy!
Dragon Hatchlings 03694 and 03664 Blue and Green
Mutilatedlips posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingTwo of Reapers metal Dragon Hatchlings. Although they are listed as Fire and Swamp hatchlings, I didn't exactly paint them that way. They were for a friend's up and coming Dragon Island campaign. Should be a nice addition the the battles to come. They were more of an experiment in colors for me and may end up painting one of Reapers larger dragons using one of their color schemes.
77274 Dragon Hatchling -- "Mint Chocolate"
AutumnHare posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI present for your amusement, the Mint Chocolate Dragon Familiar: As an avid gamer, I have a few sets of dangling dice sticks to hold my hair up. Since I have been spending so much time painting minis the last couple years, I thought it was time to add something painted to my hairstick collection. And of course... Cute little dragon.... Anyone who knows me knows I bought at least two. Here he is flying in for his closeups: Edit: Autocorrect Fail.
I gave up some of my dragon hatchlings to my kids so they could paint minis. They had a ton of fun with it, and were certainly very enthusiastic... The one on the left is my daughter's beautiful and very colourful dragon. She's 4. This is pretty much what I expected. The one on the right is my 9yo son's dragon. It's supposed to be a sort of darkish grey with spattered blood on its wings and head (my son's story is that the dragon rolls in the blood of its defeated enemies, which sounds gross to me but it's not my dragon) and the yellow spots on its head are supposed to be its eyes. I'm not sure what's up with the other colours. I honestly don't know if they're supposed to be there or not. At any rate - no award-winning paintjobs, but a lot of fun, so... yay! Both of them plan to do something more to their dragons at some point so I'm putting these in here instead of Show Off.
