Hi everyone, Here is my vignette featuring the Blacksting Wyvern hunting down a 500MD helicopter. This is a little project I had fun with recently. i painted the Blacksting Wyvern from Bones a bit more than a year back and was quite happy with it collecting dust on my shelf (original post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86236-blacksting-wyvern-speed-paint). Then, I stumbled across a 1/48 helicopter model I had almost forgotten about. 1/48th scale does fit nicely with 28mm heroic scale. The creatives juice started flowing and I decided to make a surprise encounter between the modern warfare machine and the legendary beast. I experimented as well with epoxy resin + food coloring for water, tree bark (for rocks), a couple of random 3D-printed broken statues/rubbles and toilet paper plaster for the terrain. I didn't have a clear acrylic rod for the flight stand, but wooden dowel painted black blends OK. I also forgot how much fun it is to build and paint plastic models. It is both similar and very different from miniatures painting. I'm quite happy with the result even though I could have been neater on a few places and it is a bit big for my light box. C&C appreciated
