So, a local store had a painting contest - entrants drew a random number from a jar, and that number equated to a Reaper Bones mini we had two weeks to paint and got to keep. I was remarkably lucky, and got the Dracolisk, by the incomparable Julie Guthrie. Since the rules said no more than 75% of the model could be obscured, I felt somewhat open ground with some stumps and some broken statues would be best.
There will be two prizes - one from customer voting, and one from Staff Judging. Wish me luck!
Link to original challenge:
I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
So I'm painting that.
Die roll, 13, 18, 2. Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red. Good colors. I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate.
Baby needs a bath first.
I may have only lurked around on Bones 4 (mostly because I didn't want to spend more than a base pledge right now!), but it definitely helped me get the painting bug.
I also received a plethora of monsters from CMoN (Massive Darkness) and have started playing D&D again (good old 2nd Edition). These have also gotten the creative juices going.
I thought to myself, 'self...you want a good collection of painted minis, in case the guys and gals want you to DM.' Then I realized, I have all these great bones miniatures, of which most have just been unbagged and stored.
So, here's the start of a new collection of painted monsters, freaks, and villains to terrorize my friends (maybe :D)
I wanted to practice doing scales and have always wanted to be able to get a somewhat iridescent effect. I decided the Dracolisk, #77397 would be a good model to try this out on.
I really want to make those scales 'pop' a bit more. Does anyone have any good advice?
