  1. [EDIT: Split from another thread: GCB Paints: 77192 Kaladrax. I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm finally pulling the Hydra out to finish!] Inspired by tonight's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", and the final week before the season finale, I settled on this mini as my next project: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/hydra/latest/77191 Hail Hydra!
  2. Greetings! I've had this Reaper Bones Hydra (77191) sitting around for quite a while now, waiting for me to pluck up the will & time to paint it. I'm quite a slow painter by nature & I had set myself a rule that where all my present & future Bones minis are concerned, I wasn't going to worry about removing mould lines (I love Bones but I find this particular job is a nightmare!) or going into too much painting detail but this all fell by the wayside in the end! Anyway, here it is. Following the Hydra's mythology, I've gone with aquatic colours, the base was created usi
  3. It has been a while since I last posted anything and so here is my latest work! The reaper bones hydra! He was a fun one to paint and good practice for my next major mini, Narthrax. Well here he is!
  4. I did this yesterday as a quick paint. Took about an hourish overall. I'm pretty happy with it, could probably use a few tweaks here and there. I'll pull out my light box later and post it up on my blog for a better quality, I just took it with my cell phone for now.
  5. I decided to do some additional work to my Hydra, which is the first miniature I tried painting about a month ago. The first picture is the initial paint scheme. Additional photos are updated paint. I lightened up the "banded" scales on the legs and underneath, since it's a different texture than the sort of triangular scales on the back and sides and reapplied a brown ink wash. Also did a darker brown ink wash on the tongues and crevices of the mouth (a mouthwash?), and I think that really helped with the kind of monotone look the mouth interiors originally had. I also attached t
  6. So thought I would share my first attempt at painting a miniature on here. I decided that I should get some practice in before my massive kickstarter order comes in next month, so I got a Bones hydra at my local hobby shop. The majority of the paint on this is the cheap Apple Barrel stuff, thinned with water, and lastly I did a light wash of Army Painter soft tone over the whole thing. I watched a good number of painting tutorials on YouTube before attempting this. I may have overhighlighted it a bit; I think I ended up doing about 5 different shades of green by mixing a light and dark green i
  7. This one was painted last year, shortly after painting part of my Dwarven Forge Caverns Game Tiles with a lava caverns paint scheme. I have started organizing my pictures and decided to post here in Show Off. I painted the Hydra using the same Pokorny Paint colors as I used for the lava caverns scheme on the Caverns tiles such as seen in the next pictures. And now for some pictures of the hydra by itself from different angles:
  8. Another bigger mini from me. I'm still getting used to painting miniatures this size. I didn't really go for anything too wild here though. A pretty traditional color scheme, I think. Still trying to nail something I'd call tabletop quality, though I think this fits the bill okay. I like how my serpent-eye effect turned out. I think if I painted another one of these guys I'd do something different with the coloration, maybe duller scale colors, as if he sunned himself a lot or something. I also wouldn't have assembled it first (I bought him a long time ago and put him together and just started
  9. This is yet another Bones plastic figure, 77191 Hydra by Sandra Garrity. I like Garrity's work, and this is no exception, though I feel that it would be more useful as a gaming miniature if its pose were more compact, more curled around on itself. That would probably require that it be moulded with one or two more pieces, but it's already a multi-piece model so that wouldn't be a big problem — at least, not from the end-user's point of view.
  10. One of the first things I did when I received my Bones kickstarter was to take the hydra, mutilate one of its heads and stick some greenstuff on there to make my hydra into Tiamat. Then I promptly banished it to my shelf of shame and occasionally thought about it for a year. Now, reading Metalchaos' excellent conversion thread, I feel motivated to work on it again and to keep it that I will try to post updates here. I will try to do a little sculpting every day so the greenstuff can cure in-between. I am using D&D dragons as references here. First up, the black head: Some plastic s
  11. Hi everyone, it's been a while. So, after reading this topic about an unreleased sculpt from Sandra Garrity, I decided I should give it a try. Starting with the metal version of the Hydra, I dug the boneyard in search for replacement heads and wings. After some trial and multiple orders, I chose the following heads; Ebonwrath's head and neck for the Black Dragon head, Blight Fang's head for the Green Dragon head, Diabolus's head for the Red Dragon, Stormwing's head for the Blue Dragon and the Karamor's head for the White Dragon head. The new heads don't fit the Hydra at all, they have to
  12. this one was a request from my son. I don't normally do multi-headed creatures (the split personality issues have to be crazy) but I couldn't find the bones one I had and this one was just sitting on my shelf with a half coat of red. so a little simple green and a coat of primer and he becomes a swamp monster in the desert. The heads have a story of their own. the one rearing back is one of the 2 original heads, he doesn't like to fight or get into a situation where he might lose his head. The others are descents of the second head and the resplitting is taking its toll. The one on the far si
  13. I found my little red fan, which means combined with the fact that it snowed today means that the upstairs is no longer a thermonuclear hellhole, and thus I can paint minis again, yay! Since I'm a bit shaky, I figured that I'd get a nice big couple of figures for a couple of board contests underway. So of the Halloween-themed contest, I've got the Flesh Golem and the Undertaker, and since I'm a bit shaky in the hands and have painted all of one human mini thus far, that narrows it down for me. And for the Year of Giants contest, well, why not paint the biggest figure I own at the mome
  14. Here’s my current progress on a diorama I’m building, starring the Bones Hydra! Some backstory… "In the great grassland plains in the south, where immense herds of hooved beasts roam and mighty elephants traverse the sea of grass and islands of forest, there lives a mighty predator. This is the Plains Hydra, a tawny-gold monster that manages to thrive in the savannah. It relies on ambush to capture prey, hiding in the tall grass and waiting for them to graze nearby. As it is quite a large animal, it often has to evacuate a pit in the soil to help hide its bulk, with its heads stretche
  15. This is my diorama entry for the Spaceship Superstar Painting Challenge. I wanted to do something that was pure Pulp, simple and quick. The bots are from Counterblast, are 18mm and were sculpted by Patrick Keith. The spaceship is from Hydra, is 25mm and was sculpted by Steve Meli. The base is a one inch square plinth from the hobby shop, which I simply painted black. Since I made the switch from Fantasy to Moderns and Pulp, I've never been happier as a painter. In August I finished about 18 figures, never got frustrated and found more joy in this hobby than ever before.
  16. For the last couple of months I've been painting more seriously and using subdued palettes. Which is all good and well as I feel I am growing as a painter. But every now and again I think it's a good idea to paint just for the joy of it. I did use a limited palette, unfortunately I limited that palette to a bright glowy green. So in that spirit I painted up this 18mm bot from Counterblast sculpted by Patrick Keith and a flying saucer from Hydra sculpted by Steve Meli. Hope this gave you all a bit of a laugh as life is far too serious and we're all gonna die someday. T
  17. Next up on the Bones Kickstarter painting list is the Hydra. In general I quite like this figure, but I'd like it better if it was a little more compact — not smaller, exactly, but maybe a bit more curled around itself rather than stretched out. I think that would make it more useful as a gaming miniature. Anyway, on to the painting. So far I've just applied the base colours and given the whole thing an initial wash to bring out the detail, so that I can see what I'm painting. I didn't leave the base paint to cure for long enough; the wash pulled off a little bit of paint just abo
  18. Just finished painting my Bones Hydra. Enjoy! And a close up of one of the heads:
