Thank you everyone for your praise. It has made me feel very very good about the effort I put into it and I cannot thank you enough. On a suggestion from one of you, I am attempting to enter it into the dragon painting contest that I guess Reaper has going in another forum. I messaged the thread owner in the hopes he will reply on where exactly I am supposed to post it, but I did add it to the inspiration gallery at http://www.reapermini.com/InspirationGallery/77190/latest/ where apparently one can give a thumbs up if they think it's cool enough. I don't know if thumbs up is how the winner is determined though or if I have to actually take the model in at some point. I've never entered anything like this before so I have no clue how it works.

Anyone have any advice?

 

Thanks again!

My understand is to enter you just have to post your image in the appropriate entry thread (once it is hosted somewhere, eg the inspiration gallery) and judging is based on those images. The model doesnt go anywhere. And the competition isnt technically "Reaper's" competition as such - it is run by the community here, based around reaper products, with community judges. Reaper does, though, sponsor some prizes for the competition in the interests of helping out loyal fans, rewarding effort, and a bit of positive PR.

 

(Have a look at the Painting Excuses Pulp competition threads in the same section for how other people entered that competition)

Not much to add to what everyone else said. Phenomenal job. I really like the color scheme you selected, and your attention to detail on the painting really paid off. It's a beautifully coherent piece, and that's before the lighting effects, which just elevate it to another level.

 

An as FYI, since it's sounds like you haven't posted much here, a side benefit of posting in the Inspiration Gallery is that Reaper will sometimes select pictures from there to highlight the models in their store. Your paint job is now shown in their online store (and personally, I like your paint job the best of the 3 shown currently).

 

I was thrilled the first time one of my models made it into the store; it's a great confidence booster and validation that your work is appreciated and worth the time put into it.

Thanks! You are correct that I haven't posted much here as I am a very new Reaper fan. I've only painted a handful of pieces over the years, and almost all of those were War Machine and a handful of Warhammer minis back in the day. My friends stopped playing war machine so I had nothing to paint until they got me involved in the Kick Starter campaign and my wife and I fell in love with the models. Nethyrmaul was hers actually but she saw me keep eyeing it and finally gave it to me provided I, "Bring it to life."...or un-life as the case may be!

 

Thank you for the praise, I do so appreciate it!

      Mostly airbrushed with Citadel paint, with a bit of Tamiya clear green for the eyes and additional gloss coat hand painted on the rotting flesh to add to the effect. Sneaked a bit of Nurgle's Rot as well just to add more Ooze to the rotting flesh.
      Unfortunately I was completely out of idea and time with the rock base by the time I have finished with the dragon itself, so I just hastily sprayed it with sand brown, dark brown and a quick wash of nulin oil. I'll probably revisit the base later.

      Shhh, don't tell my gaming group but I painted Nethyrmaul the Undying for something that will happen a long time from now in the game.
       
       


      The reason he is a secret is they have yet to encounter the dragon alive, I painted Nethyrmaul and my Narthrax to look like the alive and dead version of the same dragon. Enjoy!

      I picked up Nethyrmaul to be a cohort for a major undead villain in my Pathfinder campaign, and decided that I really liked the idea of her slaying a Silver dragon and reanimating it as an evil zombie minion, so, I tried my hand at a bit of a NMM(ish) silver scale pattern with a little bit of actual metallic silver thrown in to a few places. He was a long time in completing, the process, but I'm really happy with him. I'm especially fond of the "dragon graveyard" base that he's standing on. The skulls are from a "Prehistoric Mammal Skulls" Toob pack I picked up at the local arts and crafts store. The ribs rising out of the ground are actually the teeth of a plastic alligator clip I grabbed from a grocery store, and the extra rocks are actual rocks and debris from the broken pavement outside my house. He's mounted on a 7" diameter wooden base.
       
      I appreciate your looks and comments. I'm still figuring out some of the things I'm working on with this sort of thing.

      So this is a thing that's happening right now.
       

      No promises on how fast this is going to happen, especially with my impending Bones 3 shipment, but I thought I'd throw this on here.

      WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70492-77190-golden-nethyrmaul-v2/
       
      When I first saw Nethyrmaul I had one immediate thought….and when I saw her being painted up as an evil dragon left and right, it solidified the idea….that my Nethyrmaul was a good dragon. One who mentored and aided knights, defended towns within her territory, and was noble and honorable.

      Until one day, outnumbered, she fell in battle against a Necromancer and his unholy beasts and undead. Torn open by the fangs and weapons of his legion, and dying, her spirit was captured and imprisoned.

      Forced under the Necromancer’s will, her mangled corpse lurched to its feet, her eyes blazing a unholy green instead of their gentle blue. Her mind, chained and helpless, was forced to endure and witness as she was turned against the Knights she called friends, and against the villages she had once protected.
       
      This diorama helped me try my first attempts at NMM and OSL, though I am not sure how well I succeeded at them.
