Seen this one around before, always thought it was a conversion job, rather than production ^^;

 

Very much looking forward to seeing what you do with him, will be following with interest :)

Nice.  I've always liked the way that the wizard is using the dragon's tail as a chair. This is one of those pieces that really make me wonder about the back story of the two figures.

I wanted my dragon head to have a biiiit more personality, so I adjusted the jaw when gluing it, making it hang open wider. I also had the horns point directly back rather than straight up like antennae...because that's always bothered me about this mini.

it's shown here propped up on other minis to make sure the green stuff sets properly

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      In 2018 I got one of my favourite 25th Anniversary miniatures, Darius the Blue. I actually have all three of Darius sculpts, the latest being my favourite too. 
      First I tried to paint it with the same mosaic pattern Reaper used, without any success, so I settled with... kind of a freehand that I didn't like at all and a very excentric color palette. 
      That (in my opinion) failed attempt got stuck on my head and recently I bought another one to paint it again, and I'm a lot happier with the results. This is my only "1 year improvement" pic, and I thought on sharing it here since being the exact same miniature I would love some feedback. 
       
      Here the 2018 version 
       

       
      And the 2019 version that I just finished today

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
