I started by giving him a base coat of MSP Clockwork Brass, then used various washes and inks I had to give him different colors in random patterns.  I had to go back with a light coat of brass to get some of the shine back.  I used Tamiya Clears to make the "eyes" really pop out.  I also added Metallic Medium (metallic white, basically) to the brass as highlights on some of the edges of the metal.  The base is mostly pumice paste, with some Army Painter grass clumps, flock and cork "rocks" to give it some texture.  I used more inks and washes to color the pumice, then lightly drybrushed brighter colors over them to give it a little bit more texture.  I did the same with the grass clumps - the matte medium from the inks & washes stage gave it some extra strength so that the drybrush stage worked even better.  Then I put a heavy coat of gloss sealer over the whole thing (including the base) to help give the impression that it's underwater.

 

I went fast on this guy because I was just having fun (as opposed to trying to make him look really nice), but even so he probably clocked in at 6-8 hours.  I should really start timing myself so I know how long these things take.

I agree with MS:  the base does a superb job of letting the viewer know that this little guy is in an underwater environment!  Also, very nice job with the subtle color variation across the metal!

Wow, it looks wonderful!

 

I love how your painting the Army Painter grass makes it look like branch coral.

      I always wanted to paint a Cronosaurus so when Antimatter Games offered on through a Kickstarter I took it.
      In hindsight I regret getting the FDM printed version, I should have gone for the resin one since you can clearly see the printlines on this one.
      On the other hand it was a good deal and it helped me to choose what kind of printer I wanted.
      This came preprinted
       
      Part of my Lost World Project.

      Hope you enjoy the beastie.

      I got this one printed out in FDM from a kickstarter.
      In hindsight I should have chosen resin, it did help me decide to go for a resin printer myself.
      The printlines are visible and it's rough, I even used putty to smooth things out where I could.
       
      All in all a nice sculpt though.

      Story
      3D File Design
      Miniatures come in as a single-part with a separate base, or sliced into parts, where it helps in printing or when there are different part options, such as different weapons. For best results, we recommend resin printers as they will capture all of the fine detail of the models, though filament (FDM) printers will produce great results also. Scenery STL files are designed for FDM printing and come sliced and keyed and are set up to fit within a print area of 220 x 220 mm.
      STL rewards from the main pledges are set for delivery via download links after the project ends, within the first 3 weeks. Stretch goals may take longer as we may need to complete the 3D sculpting before they are available, but they should be done within 4-6 weeks.
      Pre-Supported
      We are providing the models with a pre-supported option for those that want them. Pre-supported models are created with Chitubox.
      Sample Prints
      Below are castings made from resin prints from this project. 
      Pledge Levels
      There are three main pledge types. The Adventurer pledge get the Core Rewards, which include miniatures and scenery and stretch goals for individual character miniatures. Other stretch goals can be added for an additional amount as shown on their picture. The Champion pledge gets the Core Rewards and all of the stretch goals as well as the New Add-Ons. Finally, the Treasure Hoard includes all of the Core Rewards, stretch goals and the New Add-Ons as well as Add-Ons from previous projects (Multiple GB of files). There are also special early-bird pledges for the Champion and Treasure Hoard at a reduced price. Each pledge level gets its STL Rewards as well as PDF rulebook files for DeepWars and ShadowSea and the Stygian Depths.
      If you want just to collaborate or have access to the Add-Ons you may consider the Basic level at just $1. These backers get the Rulebook  PDFs, so it is a great way to get playing.
      Any pledge level can be modified with the addition of Add-Ons, shown  at the bottom of the page. Simply increase your pledge amount for the  add-on you want.
        Stretch Goals
      If we are funded past the initial goal, we will unlock Stretch Goals. Some stretch goals may be available for an additional cost for the Adventurer pledge but are all free to Champion and Treasure Hoard backers.

      Presenting Triton, part of the Merfolk faction in the game Deep Wars by Antimatter Games.
       
      I painted his tail in some of that fancy colour-shifting paint that doesn't photograph at all and the highlighting is a bit rough, but I did a really good job (for me) of filling all his gaps so I'm calling it a win.

      Presenting Ironbelly Klegg, a member of the Fortune Hunters faction from the game Deep Wars, and my first ever mini (that I've finished) from Antimatter Games.
       
      I'm still quite bad at painting crystals, lenses etc. so he made a pretty terrible choice for my first mini to paint, but I had fun.
