Guthrie's Temple Dragon (03720)
NyarlaBcn posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingIt's been a while since I posted any work. I've just finished the Temple Dragon by Julie Guthrie, and I'm quite happy with it... so let's show it. The sculpt here is amazing, the creature has an unusual look and it's pretty small for a dragon but it has been a lot of work. I decided I wanted a "jungle" palette so I used different greens for body, scales and wings, with lots of highlight. Then I decided to paint the wing spines with that black-reddish color, with some orange; with the almost radioactive green, it looks poisonous to me and that's what I wanted. And it catches the eye better than the usual black, or bone white talons. How do you think it looks? Finally on the base I used a couple of the new Citadel's "barbed bracken" to reinforce the exotic looks with a color palette that I think both combines good with the dragon and also screams "poison!" and I finished with some skulls from unfortunate adventurers. Sadly, it's also unfortunate that I hadn't been able to improve my photos yet. I bought a "white box" for stock photography, but I wasn't happy with the results. The next step will be to buy a compact camera with a decent macro. Sorry because the photos are really amateur but it's the only way I can get a good view of the miniature right now...
Forst Wyrm: 77183 - Fall Exchange 2015
Arc 724 posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFrost Wyrm Sculpted by Kevin Williams I got Auberon for the exchange. I decided to go a different direction for this than the name would suggest, "frost." The "spots" are GW:brown (that I can't remember the name of right now) with upper highlights using Pearl White (a metallic paint) then a a glaze of a Vallejo Orange and a re-highlight of the Pearl white. The eyes are ALL metallic's and the base is from the Michael's Arts and Craft. Wood rounds. I used Reaper Ginger bread paint for the base, washed it and dry brushed it. All in all I think it turned out well. For my first large monster I think it looks good. I hope Auberon likes it.

Almost a dragon: Pingo paints 77183: Frost Wyrm
Pingo posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingSo. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. The Frost Wyrm is pretty cool and I've been looking forward to painting it. I see it as camouflaged in the rocky ice fields of the deep north, so I'm going to try that sort of a color scheme, whites and greys and blues and violets. For the time being I have painted it up, first with a base coat of Reaper's Brown Liner, then some white and a little blue mixed from Phthalo Blue and Titanium White. This is to help spot the pieces as well, since I have left some of it unglued for ease of painting. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, and the Shadow Dragon.
