Tranquil's Bench O' Catharsis - WIPs

Recommended Posts

So... I got my bones a few weeks ago, if not a month. but with the new job i havent had a fraction of the time to jump in... but tonight I'm goint to start in on Nethyrmaul... a strange choice I think, considering the sheer number of minis I now have to paint. I'll post some pics later but I wouldn't expect any leaps and bounds... I intend to take it very slow and enjoy every second of it... Haven't yet decided specifially on coloring yet but i think I'm going with an iguana look to the scales and a dirty white/ yellow-teeth/brown look to the protruding bones.


any advice or general thoughts are always welcomed...


EDIT: it must have been the size of the pics that was hindering the upload.


Anyway, I don't seem to be suffering from the "lean" that I've seen in other Nethy wips. Mold lines arent too bad, there are a couple spots where the detail of flesh around bone isn't stellar but all in all this is an awesome sight! Everything dry fit here and its apparant ill need to fill some gaps but again its not too bad. I definatley need to reshape a couple wing "fingers" should be easy from what i've read. I really don't know how I'm going to paint her yet, i've been looking at alot of iguana pics and there are a few I ceep going back to.


Questions for myself at this point are : Am i sure i want to paint this assembled? Should I pin when assembling?


Tonight I'm just going to clean the pieces and take care of the mold lines.

Worked on her after dinner last night and again some this morning... "happy" with my progress but I'm always finding problems with my own work and i find myself jumping around with seemingly no plan of action; i think this may be due to the fact that this is the biggest thing i've ever attempted to paint. If I had the choice at this point I would probably opt to paint this is pieces (more than just body and head that is)


Also, I got skiddish at attempting this with no primer so i ended up using some army painter; it ended up with a pretty rough texture (due to me not taking enough time on the primer-ing) its not TOO bad but it was bad enough to almost make me leave it and call it a statue. but here is what I have so far... no real rhyme or reason to whats been completed or what i'll do next... Although I will probably continue to lighten up the breastplates, a little to brown then what I had in my head..

I agree with Maglok, usually red/green come off as very xmas-like. You are doing a really good job with the subdued greens to make him look like a green dracolich which is just awesome.


I'm thinking of making either Kaly or Neth a blue dracolisk.

Nice colors! I would probably pin this model- mainly the wings for added support since it's such a large model. Probably easier to get the vast majority of your painting done, then pin, assemble, fill in gaps and finish touching up. It'll be hard to reach some areas if you paint (er.. gender of undead dragon...?) already assembled. I know the bones material is bendable, but still...


I love this model best out of all the dragons in the kickstarter.
