So for the Dragon challenge I decided to tackle this dragon we bought back when Grenadier was still in business. Just a little over a month to go still, I think I am cutting it close....

 

Here is a picture of the box, I really like that paint job, so I am going to try to emulate it.

And here are all the pieces:

Two weeks ago, trimming flash and getting the pins ready. Husband is handling the pinning for me.

Here's is a not so flattering pic of what we glued that weekend (turkey dragon):

Friday, I painted for about 90 minutes, some base coating with Walnut Brown, and some layering on the neck with Walnut Brown and Peacock Green. And some woodland Brown under the wings.

Picture of my new silicone palette ( idea from Nameless), with my mega size brush I used for this step.

Saturday's progress, another 90 minutes. Another layer of basecoat under the wings. Top of the wings got base coat and some highlighting. Also painted Walnut Brown some more places.

Chaoswolf, he is actually still available, quite reasonable for a metal Dragon of that size I thought. I believe it is Mirlington that makes him now.

      Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.
      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      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.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.
