Iron Wind: Make a Wish Dragons

Recommended Posts

I love this set of figures/diorama!  Beautiful paint job as well!

 

Until recently, when I've seen black and white, poor-quality photos of the miniature itself, I'd always thought that the knight in the middle was actually a dwarf and the legs were a helmet with bit horns on it.  It's really nice to see a beautifully painted version in color to prove that erroneous idea quite wrong.

Well, I'm definitely going to be needing this set!

Very nice job with it! I especially like how you did the scales on the green dragon.

Thanks all. It's the dragons expressions that make the mini for me. Especially the Blue. The eyes are large enough to paint while the casting in the eyes is sharp enough to provide good definition. For such an old mini is has surprisingly sharp detail

It's actually 10 pieces. The big deal is that it really can't be assembled and painted and the ankles are terrible fits. They have to be filled and molded with putty and then the dragons have to be separated for painting. Fitting and putty took about 4 hours. Final assembly was another 2, touch up painting to handle the additional green stuff was 4 more

Well it turned out very nicely! And I must say you're a better person than me, I just don't have all that patience to put something so convoluted together. I mostly stick with small stuff.

Not better different.  some of the small stuff drives me to distraction.  I love the high detail but sometimes there are too many buckles, patches, vials, and bricabrac on the smaller minis.  Annnnd I am still trying to figure out skin tones.  Dragon scales are soooo much easier when it comes to light reflection. :)

      The third and final big box from Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is full of Batmen from various countries.  Apparently Bruce Wane decided to franchise superheroing like a McDonalds.

      Dark Ranger is the Australian "Batman".  He dresses in white, uses guns and flies around on a jetpack.  Just like Batman...yeah I don't get it.

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      I was trying to use rose gold, with new gold as the highlights.
