Oh, and I missed a skull. Never saw it until I took the photo. Can you spot it?

Lower right corner of the picture, by the opposite corner of the "plinth" where the other skull is. :poke:

This is the last post on the WIP thread for Kaldrax. I thought I'd drop in a few last WIP photos, including the moss technique.

 

I dyed the aquarium sand green with a few drops of ink before applying it, so it would look a bit closer to the final appearance (the light tan color was disturbing to see on the model):

Then spread matte medium in cracks and on the tops and edges of rocks, and sprinkled the sand in it, until it looked more or less right:

Then sealed it with another coat of matte medium and started painting brown, then green layers:

Finally, a drybrushing of highlight colors, and placing random spots and streaks of moss colors:

A last step after a trial assembly was the addition of a pin in the torso of the dragon. The dragon is connected to the base only by two pegs on the feet, which makes the body very wobbly on the base.

A pin on the torso, and a hole in the matching depression on the base makes a third connection point and a triangle of sorts, and goes a long way towards stabilizing the dragon:

Just make sure the pin is parallel to the pegs in the feet, which go in straight up and down.

 

And at this point the work is done. The finished pictures can be seen at: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52852-gcbs-painted-miniatures/?p=861432

That base is looking amazing. I am going to look forward to painting mine. I may have to take a few pointers from here.

Thanks. If you plan to do the moss, just realize that you can't overdo it. I discovered that the more you add, the better it looks.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
