  1. I decided to try the new hotness of the color shifting paints. I am really impressed. I hope you all enjoy my version of the clockwork dragon.
  2. As promised some months ago, I painted a wyrmgear like a circuit board :) Enjoy!
  3. Once, there was an artificer. A half-orc, a genius. He could make creatures of metal and wheels that seemed as alive as any man. His clockwork marvels were the talk of the province, and when an accident in his workshop took his arm off, he built a new arm of girders and cogs, stronger and more dexterous than before. (More of this fellow if you click:) His fame spread far and wide, and one day a wealthy man, a captain of industry, another half-orc, asked him to build a weapon. He had many enemies--competitors, bandits, robbers--and also many people he wished to treat as enemies-
  4. Hi everyone! I though wyrmgear would look good with some parchment with various math diagrams and equations on its wings so I painted it like such. I also wanted it to pose in some sort of vanity position so I changed its limbs to be more elevated on the upper half and used green stuff to attach the wings at an angle so they are visible from the front and back. I will add more photos from different angles once the green stuff dries. Enjoy! :)
  5. Picked this beauty up cheap a year ago as a FLGS was liquidating some old stock. Now, I have time and a better understanding of some skills. And my love of metallics is a matter of public record. Here's my start on the body: ArmyPainter Rough Iron above, DecoArt Rich Espresso brass on the sides, DecoArt Worn Penny copper below. I'll paint the smokestacks and dorsal engine in steel colors. The legs I'm still working out, but they will probably have much the same metals. I'm trying to avoid golds on this. I'm not sure what to do with those innards. Leather bellows? Leaf springs? A red-g
  6. Wyrmgear the Clockwork Dragon was a part of the very first Bones kickstarter back in 2012. It has been standing around unpainted and semi-assembled on my Dragon shelf (the top one with extra space for all the wings and such) several years. Some time ago, I pulled it off the shelf and started rusting it up. And it did not look good. So I put it back on the shelf. And took it down again after some time, did some more rusting. And still it did not look any good. And some of this was down to the pristine, straight and flat wings. The wings are made in a much harder / more rigid plas
  7. 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.
  8. Splitting this one off into his own thread, in order to reduce clutter in the original thread, and also because he won't be a random rainbow dragon anymore. An employee at a local gaming store introduced me to this model, and shortly after seeing it I pretty much decided I very much so wanted to get my paws on it... So I did! Thing is, I don't plan on doing him up in telltale metallic colours, but instead as more of a synthetic creature with a few mechanical elements. There will be a number of firsts for me with this project... First time drilling and pinning a
  9. Here are a pair of figures I brought to ReaperCon. The Angel got a Silver Medal in the Painters. I had never painted anything like a mural or 2-dimensional before so I took a chance on trying something fun and inventive with Wyrmgear.
  10. "It seemed like such a good deal. Braythick Bearhammer the dwarf mapmaker/treasure salvager had been poking around some gnome's antique dealings stall and seen it standing there, looming in the back of the tent. It was massive, a masterwork of engineering, gone to rust and ruin. Still, it could potentially be useful to the dwarf. It did after all have a blade upon its tail, and long legs. It could carry his tools! Yes, it had been a brilliant plan. Something to carry his tools, and any 'rescued' loot he found in abandoned ruins. Something to defend him from the wilderness [and natives of said
  11. My attempt at Wrymgear. I need to get a more neutral background but this is all I have for now. Comments and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  12. Finally he's done! After trying to initially paint him shiny and metallic, and having him laugh at my efforts, I decided to just ruin him on purpose. Slowly managed to do passable rust after soooooo many layers of paint! But here he is, enjoy! PIctures of winged and wingless versions. The wings will remain unattached and only put on if the husband wants him winged for a game. Base is from Dreamforge. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55988-rusty-wyrmgear-wip/ "It seemed like such a good deal. Braythick Bearhammer the dwarf mapmaker/treasure salvager had
  13. So starting a new WIP thread just for my Wyrmgear, who is being painted up as a rusted junk heap. I want to figure out a way to get his wings to attach at angles, like I have seen others do Here's the progress so far, covered in so many layers of paint that there is no way I can tell you how I got to this stage....[originally he was going to be shiny...until he made me mad] Edit for a spelling mistake And now a story: It seemed like such a good deal. Braythick Bearhammer the dwarf mapmaker/treasure salvager had been poking around some gnome's antique dealings stall and seen it
  14. So a visit to family near Staunton, VA meant a chance to check out the FLGS there, Dragon's Hoard. The had all the big bones dragons in stock. After careful consideration, I chose the one that interested me most, Wyrmgear. Fitting him together, I see that the legs are a bit uneven: A quick boil and bend fixes that. I also remove the front leg shields for now, to re-attach after they're painted. Looking forward to breaking out the metallics and painting this one up.
  15. Starting to paint again.. woo free time! Base of brown liner and then clockwork brass Silver is grey liner and AP plate mail metal
  16. So I had a Wyrmgear I'd assembled and it was just sitting there...staring at me. This would not Do. So I got another one. It stared at me too. So I took them apart so they'd stop staring at me. Then I had an idea, and put them back together for the purposes of being mechanical mounts for the leaders of my Saturnine VSF force: Now they're staring at me again. You guys get the WIP picture because who knows when I'll get them painted.
  17. Having assembled Wyrmgear a while ago, I've been considering what to do with him. I thought of one thing ... Test: Reaper's Wyrmgear Meets Happy Seppuku on a Plinth ... and I tested it out.
  18. Back when Stonehaven was having their Gnomes Kickstarter, I saw the first of their mounted figs and had the revelation that they would probably fit on Wyrmgear; that I could actually have a crew of Gnomes on a clockwork dragon in a similar fashion to the dragon crews in the Temeraire series (by Naomi Novik, think the Napoleonic War only with Dragons if you haven't read it). This idea wouldn't go away so I ordered extra of the Gnomes I thought I might use (and because they're Gnomes!) and waited. My Gnomes arrived on Monday, game night. I did manage a quick test fitting to make sure the
  19. Wyrmgear is the large new steampunk dragon to be released as part of the Bones Kickstarter of 2012. http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/77177 It's a pretty fun figure, a Victorian-style mechanical dragon. Elsewhere people have been discussing how they plan to paint and decorate it when it arrives as part of the Bones Kickstarter next spring. While musing over decorating approaches I recalled a source I found of masses of teeny-tiny watch gears and parts. http://www.amazon.com/Lisa-Pavelka-2-Ounce-Crafting-Silver/dp/B0053GA0DI They are dismantled watch inna
