My daughters Paintings
Krassling posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis thread is more for fun than actually showing off. I will collect hier some of the paintjobs of my daughters, especially the little one. The first mini is a Triceratops. A dinosaur from a boardgame of the mid-90s. I think it was her first mini ever to be painted. When I started painting with her sisters the four-year-old insisted she wants to paint as well. So I grabbed this mini from the box and told her to start with it. She is keen of multicoloured paintings. Something I have seen on other kids paintjobs as well. After a good start she demanded more minis. Her sister has had painted an unicorn. So she wanted a horse for herself. So it seemed rational to get some baby horses for her. The foals blister has a unicorn as well which ist not shot already. I will add that later.
W.I.P. Standifer’s Draconians
Standifer posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingThis is one of my armies that I’m working on for Dragon rampant. Sadly there are not many pictures to post of it right now since I don’t have many models, yet. But a large portion of it will be made up of Reaper overlords units with a couple of minis from others brands thrown in. The first one! This is an Overlords Onyx phalanx by Reaper minis. I needed to compare sizes with my hero before getting a full force so I sadly only have one currently. The other unit currently being worked on is a Wizkids Nolzurs triceratops that I am converting into a cavalry mount. I am using milliputt for the harness, and am planing to use paper clips to make the reins. I’m wanting to make it barded like a warhorse but I’m unsure on how to do it. Any suggestions? I hope to get my rider in here soon so I can start working on that part of the conversion. Thankyou for looking!
Maledrakh's Thunderfoot Behemoth
Maledrakh posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThe second add on tie-in to the Lost Valley: the Thunderfoot Behemoth, for 8 dollars in the kickstarter campaign. An almost-Triceratops, biggest difference is the crest of horns around the rim of it's skullplate that the fossil record does not quite support as far as I know. I went with the same-ish colour for this and the thunderfoot defender sauroid, as they were painted at the same time, and why not? I ditched the original base and made a 125x100mm for it instead. Paint big minis with big brushes! I used a 12mm wide make up brush for most of this mini. On a black undercoat I drybrushed the top half or so with Vallejo Green Brown 70.879 and from the bottom with Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh 74.015. I honestly don't remember the other colors...some reddish brown, an ochre yellow, a bone white and a few others. And when the paint was on, I used CItadel Athonian Camoshade to wash the whole thing, taking care to remove any pooling with a brush. After that was dry, I carefully drybrushed the main colours one more time to lighten them a bit. The horns were done in the pale flesh with the camoshade, and then drybrushed with two different off whites. Details like the eyes, based and done. Also consider for a bit what kind of environment that promotes the evolution of this kind of size, armour and weaponry in prey animals. This is a twelve ton herbivore. with armour-piercing horns! in comparison, a heavy modern day Rhino clocks in at 2.2 tons. A triceratops could be more than five times that! Yeah, it figures it would not have them if it did not need them...T-rexes and Triceratops did live at the same time and the same place...the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America. This is about 75-80 million years after the jurassic period...so that park has a lie for a name. A triceratops would be around 3m tall and 9m long, so the Thunderfoot is not far off it would seem. up to 12.000 kilos. That's a solid "oh HELL no!" on the fluffy scale. Thunderfoot Behemoth an add on in the Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures unknown sculptor Made in Classic Bonesium PVC probably available from reapermini.com soon
Standifer posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingA dreaded sight on the field of battle the mighty Draconian chargers strike fear into the hearts of all their foes as they barrel down upon them to trample them into the earth. This my triceratops knight conversion. The Triceratops is a WizKids Nolzurs marvelous miniature, while the rider is from a Reaper bones black overlord cavalry. I use admit that this is my largest conversion yet and i got to learn several new skills in doing this. CHHAAAAAARRRRRGE! Thankyou all for looking!
17333 Thunderfoot Behemoth (Bones4)
TGP posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI unboxed this Dino this weekend. Here she is stomping on a tabletop. The model is flawless, the detail is quite nice. I did a little bit of research about ceratopsians. As near as I could find out this one has a frill somewhat like a Styracosaurus but the face (head?) is more like a Pentaceratops. Which is no cause for complaint as far as I’m concerned. Lots of sharp horns is a good thing. I still need the correct five digit number and the right name for this model. If anyone has those or a suggestion for a third tag I can edit the title. SEARCH WORDS: TGPTGP, dinosaur, lizardmen,
