Psst... Hey, wanna see something cool?

I don't think they'd do that, Frank. Bryan's pretty scrupulous about making sure size is accurately depicted. I'm pretty sure it's just that the green "pops" a lot more than the white of the knight.

I thought the bones were ready to paint without priming ?
Yes, priming is optional and by some accounts sub optimal, but if someone is going to work up from a black basecoat, a spraycoat of black primer may save some time.

TBH, it almost looks like there is some forced perspective going on in that picture, with Nethyrmaul being a bit in front of the Bones knight, making the undead dragon look even larger. But it might just be the lighting or camera focus.

Grabs can opener...

 

And I am really hoping that jaw isn't glued on when it gets shipped. Getting a brush between the jaw spines to get to the upper neck will be tricky.

Pretty sure that the knight is a little bit in front of Nethermaul, not the other way around. Not by much though. (Going by the chin spike and the shoulder, more than anything else.)

This shot was taken by Julie, not by me, so I don't know if the fig is in front or behind. I shouldn't expect that it is a huge distance though.

 

Also, no it had not been announced who would sculpt it during the project.

The only thing I don't like about this picture, and it is really only a trifling detail, is that now I find myself compelled not to call yon beastie by his proper name Nethyrmaul - but instead to remoniker him the more appropriate: "Om Nom Nom".

OOOOooohhhh man. When my Eberron campaign comes back from hiatus next April, my players are gonna HATE me. I have encounters with Glockendrache (Wyrmgyr? Klockenspiel? What's his name...? I like Glockendrache), Nethyrmaul and Verocithrax all lined up...this is suuuuch a doozie of a dragon!

I should try to take photos when I am more awake.

As far as I can remember, (it was after a reeeeallllly long day of sculpting, and I did knock it off the stand at least once), the knight figure was directly in front of the Dragon's chest.

I just increased the image size on my screen so that the Garrick The Bold mini shown matches the size of the actual mini I happen to have on my desk. Gives me a good idea how big the dragon actually is.

 

Nethy is not a wee beastie.

That's one big dragon!

 

(So glad I purchased it, but seriously I have miniatures smaller than 1 chest scale that took 3 hours to paint...)

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received

      continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier.  I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest.  This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series .  I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave.  (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there.  The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon.  Interesting but not what i wanted.  Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!




       
      She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice!  About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
       
      For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:


       
      I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill.  I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      As the year wears on i continue to complete my personal challenge of 12 dragons in 12 months.  (I have to go count but i think i am there...  not sure though so I keep it up!)  this is another oldie but goodie from the third Dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  this was the January offering, the black dragon.  I decided that this dragon liked his underground layer so the base is done as a broken river skree.  the large open space made me add a small geode, just to see if i could do it.
       



       
      The dragon is painted with dark blacks and Purple shadow (which actually looks darker than the black so there!)  Then i used some new wax paints i acquired to bring up the colors on the highlights to give him a shiny scale and brightness.  I think this is the first time i have created a dragon that actually looks black but still has lots of texture and contrast. 
       
      Again congrats to grenadier for acquiring some really lovely sculpts and turning them out back when high definition was not a popular feature.  there is a lot to see on this dragon, right down to the small row of teeth that line the edges of his closed mouth.  I had a lot of fun painting him.  I hope you enjoy him too!
