Robins WIP #2 77026 Young Fire Dragon Bones (Gold)

Recommended Posts

Playing by the rules, as they stand now,  I have started a Project specific WIP for the Young Fire dragon.  My better half saw my version of EbonWrath as a blue dragon and wanted one of her own.  While not sure what dragon she wants me to purchase to paint for her... she is still thinkling on this.. I have painted her up the Young Fire dragon.  I first boiled the wings to gain some seperation (yay bones) as they were almost vertical.

 

Below is the base coat of GOLDEN Shadow with Some Blue wing bones.

Then while waiting for work to complete some system implementations so I could do my part remotely (couldnt leave the computer area), I motored on today and got the wings and body mostly done.  I still have not decided on the base for the dragon so I have not done more than base coat the feet.

 

Again I apologise for my poor camera skills.. remember this guy would be a pet for Sir Forscale.. equivalent to a small pony I would say.

The white 'Broccoli' base will be coming off once I design him his own custom environments.  Suggestions for this are welcome.  Also any critiques or stuff you like please feel free to add any feedback.  It is a WIP.

I always love seeing the many different ways that little dragon gets painted!  Looks good so far, I'm especially interested in how you do the basing.  The one I have half-done was just glued on top of a 40mm base with putty added to blend it together.  (Easy, but not impressive.)

Looks great, is Golden Shadow a metallic colour? I can't tell from the photo.

 

No golden shadow is one of the skin tone triads.   The last set of pictures shows the dragon with a light Palomino Gold as a highlight on each scale and that is the metallic adding the extra shine.

I have started and, I hope you are not disapointed Jay.  Based on the dragons pose I figured he should be swatting at something below and to his left... soooo. ..

 

time to catch some dinner!  Salmon I think!  

 

I don't have any water effect stuff so I am going with a painted base (multiple shades of blue mixed with white) and then cover that by a thick coat of sealer and then some white Glue to represent current/waves/ripples.  (The glue has not dried at this point so it is actually still white... I will probably have to paint it tomorrow.)

 

:unsure:

 

Stage one (throw some stuff in water including blue rocks)

Stage two change the rocks to grey and muddy brown.

Ok.  The white glue dried and all but disappeared so I had to paint in the frothy water instead.  I have gone as far as I want to on the young dragon so below are the final pics.   I wll also add them to the Show Off thread for those who dont follow the WIP (and they are missing a lot)!

 

SO below is the Golden young dragon looking for a meal  ' Gone Fishing '

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Hi everyone, here are some group picture of my Player Character and a NPC in our D&D games. All Reaper Miniatures models; 03492, Autumn Bronzeleaf Elf Wizard sculpted by Jeff Grace. Converted 77038, Hell Hound sculpted by Ben Siens. 02771, Lorus Hightower sculpted by Sandra Garrity. The elf wizard is one of my player characters, she's a wood elf druidess and I called her Kiarah Amanodel aka Moonflower. Her riding dog Khan was converted from a Hell Hound. And, Firecracker will be an important non-playing character in an opcoming campaign.
       
      I hope you enjoy, comments and critiques are welcome.

      I took this picture last night while I was fooling around with recently painted models. It's firecracker time! 02771, Lorus Firecracker sculpted by Sandra Garrity vs. 89031, Whispering Tyrant sculpted by Bobby Jackson. The 77531, Graveyard Fence Posts are also from Reaper and were sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. The skull I added on the post is from the 02611 Skulls of 8 races package sculpted by Sandra Garrity.

      Finished up the Dark Heaven Sidrith Sword Sister and am happy with the results though I am also thankful for the size creep in mini's over the years as it was really hard to try and do detail work. I'm very happy with the eyes and once again the new Heartwood Brown is becoming my fav for Leather; just base coat it and add a sepia wash and it's 90% done. the only complaint with the mini is that the sword hilt holding hand hands back is really lumpy and it's hard to tell what was hand, hilt or crossguard.
