Here is my vignette featuring the Blacksting Wyvern hunting down a 500MD helicopter.
This is a little project I had fun with recently.
i painted the Blacksting Wyvern from Bones a bit more than a year back and was quite happy with it collecting dust on my shelf (original post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86236-blacksting-wyvern-speed-paint).
Then, I stumbled across a 1/48 helicopter model I had almost forgotten about. 1/48th scale does fit nicely with 28mm heroic scale.
The creatives juice started flowing and I decided to make a surprise encounter between the modern warfare machine and the legendary beast.
I experimented as well with epoxy resin + food coloring for water, tree bark (for rocks), a couple of random 3D-printed broken statues/rubbles and toilet paper plaster for the terrain. I didn't have a clear acrylic rod for the flight stand, but wooden dowel painted black blends OK.
I also forgot how much fun it is to build and paint plastic models. It is both similar and very different from miniatures painting.
I'm quite happy with the result even though I could have been neater on a few places and it is a bit big for my light box.
I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).
They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)
Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.
This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.
Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings.
I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.
