I have been itching to do this mini since I saw it in the catalogue, and then my son sent it to me !

Now that I have done a Tom Meier miniature again, I have earned the pleasure of painting this one.

I did a slight mod when I was assembling it.  I did not like the right arm so low to the ground, looked like he

was running, I raised the arm up so that he looks like he is fighting.  I think it has a bit more tension in it.

 

Here is "The Dragonkin Rogue" prior to priming or adding brown liner.  Just a couple of views.

Some of these details are VERY shallow, almost hints.  I love the folds in the materials.  I am thinking of

some rich, and deep blues in those shadows, and lighter blues for highlights.

Beyond that, strap on your seat belts.

Very cool mini!!!

 

Any ideas yet on what color the dragon itself will be?

I'm leaning towards a tarnished copper color (in the greens area).

Might change once I see the blues develop !

Are you going to use metallic paints?

I mix so many colors together sometimes, that I might use some copper in there, but I'm thinking more on the green you see on old old penny's, brass coinage.  Its a very unique green, but if a metallic might help, I'm sure to toss it in.

Could always use metallic drybrushing to hit the areas that would see the most light. It looks pretty cool when you do that over a color. Just a very light dry-brush of a metallic of your choice.

Vallejo has a nice set of special effects paints.

 

Verdigris is in that one too.

 

I used it on my Nagendra Warrior's shield ( see Sig).

 

Maybe it is of use to you?

I finally got him dry and primed.

I then went nuts with my brown liner.  I really love this stuff.

I use it as my discover color.  Once this goes on, all the little details show up.

Oh, a Note:  If you see flashes of what looks like metal, it isn't, it is the gray primer I use from Vallejo.

Everyone has a way to apply their liner of choice, I am a strict brown liner person, since I know how to

use it to my advantage as I apply color.  It also helps me greatly with my shadow color.

So here is the Dragonkin Rogue Primed and lined, awaiting my next bout of insanity !

Well, among all the things I got accomplished today, I managed to get two Norwegian lessons done, and a couple hours into the mini. He was pinned this morning (very touching ceremony (ROFL), and then I started the shadow layers, and got them worked up to a really nice dark blue.  Now I can start laying in mid-tones over the raised parts and blend it all together.  This may turn into a study in blue's for a while as I work around the whole figure.  Haven't decided what I am going to do with the apron in front, nor the armor.  I'm still keeping to that copper Green for the dragon kin right now.  My head is playing games with that color at this point.. "what if's" are a lot of fun to experiment mentally with !

So here he is "In Shadow).

 

I'm working up the courage to clip off the broccoli base sometime tomorrow.  Such a delicate move.

Wanted to add a comment on the Green I mentioned as the dragonkin rogue color.

I'm NOT talking about a metallic.  I should mention that I collect Roman coins as another hobby,

but only the brass ones.  If you look up on the web "Tarnished brass or copper coins" images you will see photos of the green I am referencing.

Has NOTHING to do with the metal.  Its a bit like Peacock Green from Reaper, but lighter in color.

I can mix up a color similar to that one.

I very rarely buy colors that I would use out of the drop bottle.

I prefer mixing my own.

But that is exactly the color I want to use, and then lighter highlights.

      Started this as a PC but the game went nowhere so he sat on my desk for quite some time.  finally got around to finishing him and thought i would share.  He's quite well detailed and has a lot of character I might get another one to try in a different color but that will be another day.  Hope you enjoy him

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
       
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
       
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
       
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      Hadn't painted metal in a while... it was refreshing!
