Maglok butchers a limited edition, GF9 Dracolich


Recommended Posts

So to honour our most venerable Buglips I decided to follow suit in naming this thread. I just aquired a really awesome model. No like seriously awesome.


Here it is.




Cookie who knows what it is! Might be slightly harder then when I grab a Bones mini to paint.


I am going to give this one the full treatment. It will probably take me months to finish, but that is just fine. :)


Remove mold channels, wash it all up, try to put it together, etc. It has been a while since I have done a full step by step WIP, so I figured lets do it on a awesome miniature.

Darn I really thought I stump you Buglips! Yes, I grabbed the last one available on Spiel. :) Doesn't even have box art yet.


So right now I am cutting away all the bits and bobs. that are unneccesary. The wings have a lot of thin resin that I was told is meant to be drilled away, so I aim to do that next.

A lot of the painting would have to be OSL then, but I think it would be worth it. His base is 6 inch diameter.


I did the first bit of glueing yesterday night. I cleaned all the part of extra bits, washed it with a toothbrush and some water (mold release had to be removed here and there). The amount of casting errors is really low, I am amazed by the quality of this thing.


I put the base together and spent a lot of time on positioning the model, holding bits together, etc. to get a feel for how the thing works. The stance is kind of awesome.


I will have to paint the base seperately, and probably also at least the wings, for I cannot reach the ribcage properly if the wings are in the way. Oh and I get to choose how far open I want the mouth to be, awesome option. :) I am thinking like halfway open. He peeks around the bit of ruined building afterall and it feels to me like he wants to breath on whatever is there.


I will post a few pictures tonight of how he looks so far.

      Rudolph's lantern is the first time I've actually attempted a lighting effect. I did this by priming the figure black, doing an overall drybrush of a light brown (the main color for the figure), and a drybrushing of white in raised areas that would be hit by the light. Then I laid down the basecoats, layered the highlights and glazed on a spot of yellow for the lantern.

      For Ezmerelda the challenge was making the two legs distinct. I don't think I photographed her super well, but I think it reads well enough as a wooden leg. A few hard-to-reach spots on this sculpt, though! There's a few details that I might make small adjustments to after I come back from my brief holiday and look at her again, but for now, I'm satisfied.
      These characters have been sculpted quite a number of different times; in the Nolzur line as "vampire hunters", in their prepainted line, etc. I considered tracking down all possible versions to compare them, but I already knew these sculpts by Gale Force 9 would be my favourites, and looking at the results, I doubt I could be proven wrong. Quite satisfied!

      As commanded by the very, well, commanding @Glitterwolf, I’m going to paint this big boy.  I’ve been eyeing him on the corner of my desk for months now, and to be honest I’m a little afraid of him.  He’s probably going to look somewhere between terrible and mediocre by the time I’m done, but at least he won’t be grey anymore.
      I’m probably going to use the airbrush that I barely know how to operate quite a bit.
      I think we’re going to need a bigger brush ...
      I only have up to a size 2, which I guess would be like mowing the grass with nail clippers.  Should I get a size ... 4?
      All are very welcome to critique/comment/heckle/throw tomatoes/etc.  I need and will be very grateful for any advice and assistance I receive, but please don’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t do very much good.
