Evilhalfing: here's a closeup of the wing bones.



I just found the slightly raised area in the center on the fold and painted it with the blue.  I lined each side with the black. I decided to make the area where the rib flares out a bit into a joint.  All I did was a line of black after painting a few layers of the lighter colors.  Here, the edges of the joint are painted lighter to make them look more rounded- it would mimic them being more raised perpendicular to the rib itself- so even though it is almost flat, I can make it look more 3-D that way.  Have fun with it!

taking a break from the dragon to work on my newest arrival: Kingdom Death Survivor.




oh my.  I just spent 5 hours putting together my survivors, 1 kingsman, white lion and butcher.  Most of the time I spent filling in the gaps, pinning, sanding... this is insane.  Insane.  I signed up for most of the expansions, and I haven't even touched the included kits yet.  All I want to do is paint them and I'm stuck prepping.




I HATE PREP WORK!!!! :grr:


Also... there is no way I'm going to figure out where all the little hands go on the phoenix.  Not happening.  As a side note, I used Iacton's painted survivor examples on CMON to figure out where all the cloth bits go on the survivors.  If you haven't done yours yet, its helpful.  I left a few choice bits unattached until later so I can paint them more easily.  The front legs of the lion I left off, but stuck them in just to see how it looked.


Ah.  Thanks for the opportunity to vent.  Much better now.  Carry on!


I'm doing a hopefully not evil thing and trying to make a larger template for the stone faces for my larger miniatures like the lion and phoenix (since the only size bases KD makes with the face inserts is 30 mm.)  So I took the 30 mm bases and stuck them into the sculpey to make a bigger stamp.  It should easily fit a 50 mm shape. 



I'll bake it tomorrow and test it out.

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
      Comments, criticisms and advice as ever more than welcome!

      I've really been going after these dioramas.  I'm seriously enjoying the change of pace going from the painting to the working of a landscape.  There's still so much I'm learning on color, scenery, and flock, but it's definitely coming along.


      I thought the pebbles were kind of fun like some kind of jewels, but it didn't hit like I wanted, so I then went and added some GreenStuff jewels among them to give the impression it's mixed precious stones.  Either way, the point of little Rocky hoarding and scheming I think comes across fine. 
      Where I may have gone a little overboard was the chipping of the stones.  I think leaving the pillars chipped would have been better and leaving the scaled walls untouched.  It's just hard because as I worked it, I just felt it was needing something else.
      There's a local contest that I've been dropping my minis into and it's killing me because I'm getting beat every time by warhammer models.  I keep trying to bring in something different that will make others go, "Oh, that's different."  Even if I don't win, Isuppose that's not the point of me doing them.  The point is to keep trying and using this contest as a motivator to do more.  With most of the other models just being based on a 1 to 3" base, these big boys that I've been doing are sure to catch more eyes than the usual smaller ones I've submitted before.  
      Here's to hoping it wins in August or Sept.

      I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand.
      I really enjoyed painting it.  This is my first full dragon miniature painted.
      I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome.
      I hope you like it.  This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good.
      Here is the link to the WIP:
      C&C welcome.
