Ok, I have to admit, I was eaten by a dragon and couldn't post!    Actually, I blame work, but I have been working on a dragon in my spare time.  I had this weekend off, so I got a decent amount done.

Such an awesome warm fuzzy day! Thanks!!! I know what it's like to miss clay- my poor wheel has been sadly neglected since I picked back up my hobby brushes.   I made it to the hobby store, got

Oh MY !

Corporea that is INCREDIBLE !!!!

That monocrome painting is astonishing.

I can't imagine what you will be able to do with any color now.

You have mastered black, what would you do with purple, green, Red, or Blue ?

You have just opened up a new world !!

Gratulerer !

yeah- I'm going to try to make it as easy on myself as possible! ^_^  I have some stonework elements in mind and I may or may not build a tree.

In the meantime, got just a bit more done.  I haven't done anything else with the highlights on the breastplate yet...


Wow just wow!

Ok, so I've been taking everyone's great advice and trying to push the highlights just a bit.  I haven't been painting much.  I just got over one of the worst cases of either food poisoning or evil GI viral madness.  Regardless, I lost 4 pounds in 24 hours.  Ugh.  ugh ugh ugh.  It took me about a week to want to do anything, much less paint.  But I'm back!




I really want to get started on the base but I'm trying to resist the urge.  I want to make sure I have the foot holes lined up right first.  I haven't done anything with the sides/face of the shield except a basecoat- I just wanted to get the underside painted before I attached it.  I'll do the feet after I attach her to the base.

Lovely work, and glad you're feeling better! The stronger highlights are really working on the breastplate, and her left leg especially is really reading well. If I had any critique, it would be that in these photos, her cheekbones look as reflective/shiny as the armor now, but I'd guess that it's not that case in the hand.

Thanks all!  Yeah.  I reached a point where I just sat in the bathroom waiting... I miss about 1 day a year being sick and this was definitely it.  I felt so fortunate though because the night I was sick I was on call.  I remember lying there praying no one would call me with an emergency because I wasn't really sure what I could do about it.  No one called!!! Small blessings, right?


And I think I may tone down the face with a glaze later- it's not quite as intense as the armor in person, but it is a bit more contrast than I want.  I was trying to decide what shade of skintone to go with at the time- lighter or darker.

Wow. This is really coming along.


I also love seeing your process; I don't know why I've never thought about not painting the feet of a mini that's being painted off-base. Totally smart.


Glad you're feeling better! Stomach woes are never a good time.

Corporea, KATHUD !


This is so delicate a work.

Its inspirational.

You are becoming a miniature whisperer. 

The quiet, sensuousness of this sculpt, and the deftness of your brush strokes makes me breathless.

This is a monumental signature work.

Its stunning in its simplicity.

Thank you for showing us that such a thing is possible.

Magnificent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.

      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...

      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
