77109: Bones Fire Dragon in Green

Recommended Posts

I click on a new show off.  Look at the pictures going Oh wow, reaching the bottom; thinking that these have to be Corporea, scroll back up. Yup, Corporea...

Was it the tree that gave it away?  The over-reliance on basing? :;):   It's nice to have a 'style'- kindof like high school, only with less hairspray!  And more dullcoat... ^_^

I'm glad you did this, the whole 'red+green=xmas' thing bugs me. It doesn't unless the beholder makes it so. I don't see it until someone mentions it, which makes me annoyed with the person who does so :)

 

Great work as usual, nice lil snake in there.

The Whole piece, the balance, the paint job, etc.

The exact same thought process went through my head.  "Ooh! Pretty dragon. Heh, looks almost like Corporea's base work.  Who did this? <scrolls up> Oh! Corporeal!"

 

I pegged it as yours when I saw the little snake on the base.  Until then It was just an impressive dragon, then it became Corporea's impressive dragon.

 

I'm not sure I could tell you why the little snake dude and base style made me think of you, though.

Love it! And I don't think you over-rely on basing...you just do a really great job of creating entire 360-degree worlds for your minis!

 

I love the snake.

 

I have one nit to pick...there's a pretty hard corner of cork just below the snake...I'd take a pair of pliers or tweezers (the cork Andy brought to Rcon is crumbly enough for tweezers) and rough up the flat edges a bit, pull chunks of cork out so it looks a little less finished.

 

The red and green works really nicely, especially with the yellows in there. *takes notes for the big green sitting in the queue*

Really great looking dragon! I love the highlights and shading. You've brought a lot of contrast to the piece.

 

I have to echo Sanael on the base, though. The basing looks like sheets of cork stacked on a base. I wish you had roughed them up more, or puttied over the sides, or even painted them like shale to justify the uniform layering.

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
       
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
       
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
