This is an old Grenadier figure I've had hanging around on my shelf of shame for ever. I don't know if I stopped liking the sculpt as mush as I did when I first got it, or my paint scheme was lousy, or what, but he's been about 75% painted for about 12 years.  I pulled him down and decided to finish him up yesterday. I touched up a few things about his old paint job, finished him off and based him.

 

It's only done to table top levels, but at least he's (finally) done.

Thank you, everyone.

Very nice job! Any idea what set or blister pack he's from?

I'm sorry, I don't. I've had him for a long time; I'm pretty sure he was a blister pack figure, but I can't be positive. A lot of my older figures got removed from their packaging and put into Chessex figure cases a while ago due to space constraints.

I have this guy!

 

You did a great job on him!

 

The mini is from Dragon Lords 2021, Encounter at Khomar-Lolth (Copy Right 1987)

Lots of good dungeon dressing in there!

I bought it specifically for the Mini that CW painted, as back then, there weren't to many Dual Wielding figures....

I'm just so happy to know that I'm not the only one here who has had half painted minis sitting on his desk for the past 12 plus... plus plus plus... plus years. ::):

NP!

Still have lots of old catalogs and Dragon mags to find stuff like that in, if I don't have it....

      Hello everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.

      Hello everyone, sorry for this guy lack of decent clothing. I guess it makes sense to be dressed like this when you're a slave fighting in the scorching arena of Thule.
      This Warlord 14652, Necropolis Chattel model was sculpted by Stefan Niehues.

      continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier.  I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest.  This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series .  I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave.  (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there.  The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon.  Interesting but not what i wanted.  Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!




       
      She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice!  About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
       
      For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:


       
      I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill.  I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      As the year wears on i continue to complete my personal challenge of 12 dragons in 12 months.  (I have to go count but i think i am there...  not sure though so I keep it up!)  this is another oldie but goodie from the third Dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  this was the January offering, the black dragon.  I decided that this dragon liked his underground layer so the base is done as a broken river skree.  the large open space made me add a small geode, just to see if i could do it.
       



       
      The dragon is painted with dark blacks and Purple shadow (which actually looks darker than the black so there!)  Then i used some new wax paints i acquired to bring up the colors on the highlights to give him a shiny scale and brightness.  I think this is the first time i have created a dragon that actually looks black but still has lots of texture and contrast. 
       
      Again congrats to grenadier for acquiring some really lovely sculpts and turning them out back when high definition was not a popular feature.  there is a lot to see on this dragon, right down to the small row of teeth that line the edges of his closed mouth.  I had a lot of fun painting him.  I hope you enjoy him too!
