I've decided to use my days at home with the US government shutdown to tackle some of the bigger models. First up, Wyrmgear. My gaming group's long running setting has evil blue elves, named for their blue armor and the fact their eyes are a pale blue from the herbs they smoke. This dragon is going to be painted in the blue metallic armor the blue elves have as it was a creation for them and built by some dwarves. I base coated him in various shades of reaper paint greys to give the different metallic paints a lighter or darker feel. Here is what I have after one day of work:

Looks like I spoke too soon, back to work on Monday. I think I'll turn this into a what happens first, the dragon is complete or the full government is back to work. I'll just plan to make progress after work until it is complete.

 

 

For now a status update, finished base coating all the grey undertones so now to paint on the blue metallics one they dry. I started painting the dark blue over the spines on the tail and will work with the light blue once the lighter greys. I've glued the legs into place and will finish painting the wings and tail before I attach them and then work on the base.

First day back at work and had to sign my papers saying I have to work and will eventually get paid when the budget passes for the hours I work (w00t?).

 

Anyways, update on the clockwork dragon. Painted the wings and glued them in place and started work on the base, I should get him done tomorrow as the tail is painted and drying. I'm debating painting white stars or something on the metal shields since the blue elves are all named after stars and constellations or should I leave them as is?

Thanks everyone! I did it with some cheap metallic craft paints that I thinned with distilled water. I originally tried thinning it with airbrush medium but I noticed the paint separated while it dried on the mini. I'll post more pictures when I get the army this guy will be a part of done :)

 

I'm actually painting about 6 armies of various dwarves, elves, and humans for an in house wargame my boyfriend is developing for our long running D&D campaign. I'll keep this thread updated as I work my way through them.
