89001: Pathfinder Red Dragon

Recommended Posts

Well, I've decided it's time to take a deep breath and starting working on my dragons. To start with, this guy:

I love Wayne Reynolds' concept art (above) so I'm trying to stick to it as much as possible.

 

Here he is, assembled and based:

The base is an unholy mess of glue, cork, green stuff, stones and sand.

 

Here he is with some base coats:

The red is Vallejo Burnt Cad. Red (+ Pure Black), the base is Stormy Grey + Swamp Green + Pure Black, the eyes are Sun Yellow, the chest is Vallejo Yellow Ochre and the horns etc. are just plain Pure Black.

 

Next I'll base coat the teeth, clean up the red coat, and start layering...

Awesome. How did the Bones take Green Stuff?

 

Quite well. I'm still relatively new to this, but I've used Green Stuff on multiple Bones figures now and haven't had a single problem so far.

OOh I hadn't seen the concept art before, that's very pretty! You're sticking to the color scheme really well, it looks great so far!

I especially love your base! I'll definitely need to start fiddling with making nice bases for my minis, rather than leaving them with the bases they come with lol!

I think it's fun to see everyone's different version of the same miniature! When we're all done we should put the final pictures side by side =D

Id post pics but I dont have a camera. the one on my phone is so grainy and fuzzy and doesnt take shots close enough to really see anything.

I attempted to take pics once and they were just aweful.

I'm going ot have to get me some green stuff and cork and start trying to base things, because I love the look of that base and how nicely it fits with the dragon's intergral base.

I'm finding doing bases to be more and more fun. You can do so much with so little and give that figure another bit of OOMPH.

I need to find a place to buy green stuff, and that cork though. Any suggestions? =)

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
       
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
       
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.

      I saw this ad in Fantasy Modeling #5 back around '80 or '81 and immediately sent off for the Dragontooth catalog, and promptly bought the dragon. I think it cost something like $20, if you factor in the shipping. I knew when the box containing him arrived, because I think the box must have weighed twenty pounds.
       
      He was about the size of my hand, five and a half inches from tabletop to wing tip, and weighed approximately fifty pounds. Solid lead. Eight parts; Two wings, torso, four legs, and the top of his head and upper jaw. Wings would NOT stay on with crazy glue, epoxy, solder, or Sovereign Glue.
       
      My players must have fought that dragon three or four times in the three years we existed as a gaming group before we all went off to college and scattered to the four winds. One of the boys named him Skippy. As in, "Dragon? Oh, man, Skippy's gonna hit the table!"
       
      There weren't a whole lot of dragons back then. Toy dragons may have existed, but we didn't have any clue where to find one. And metal dragons had begun to exist, but I lived in a little tiny Texas cow town in the middle of nowhere. For us, there was Skippy, and we loved him well.
       
      So naturally, he was among the things my parents tossed out when I left for college. I have never seen another Dragontooth dragon like him. He was seventy pounds of solid lead, and probably illegal to sell, these days, but I'd buy another one in a minute.
       
       This is my newest dragon. Arrived today. He's pretty, and I hear they have him at Wal Mart, now. He and his box of friends cost fifteen bucks.

      And back in 1980, I'd have flapped my arms and flown to the moon by sheer force of personality if I thought it would have got me a dragon like this.

      But then.... today... you can find dragons anywhere. I think Reaper makes one or two different dragons, don't they......?

      Who was YOUR first dragon?
