Narthrax the Bronze/Gold/ Copper/Otherwise Shiny WIP

Recommended Posts

I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread.

 

So this is where I'm at =]

Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P

Update time =D

I popped some basing stuff on the shiny one today, because he was bugging me and it's mighty hot here at the moment.

So he's got a nice little collection of bits of vegetation going on there. I may yet also give him a little gold pile, I'm not sure.

 

However, his paintjob...

I used some Agrax Earthshade on the topsides of his wings to tone them down a little, then brushed a tiny bit of Auric Armor back on to stop them being too dull.

Dang, but I he looks good!

 

Thanks =] 

He's a sod to photograph, I have to admit xD the heavy use of metallics makes him... Oddly behaved in light.

Metallics are always a pain in the arse to photograph......

 

There is likely some super expensive filter to put on a super expensive camera to make it super easy but I am not spending super amounts of money for that kind of stufff.....

>.<

 

I have a polariser around somewhere... If I can find it, I may give that a go on my proper camera. He's big enough to shoot on it, at any rate - I struggle with shooting the little guys on my DSLR, so pretty much everything ends up being a phone job instead because that does a better job of focusing close and stuff.

So I tried photographing this SOB again today, using my SLR... Not sure where my polariser is atm, so just shooting with a plain old UV filter.

I lack proper lights, so I end up shooting on low elf aperture, which means obviously.... Shallow DOF. I also need bigger backdrops to shoot him against >.< I only have A4 ones.

 

You can at least see his colours slightly better in this one xD 

When I can get photographing him nailed down, I'm starting to become inclined to call him finished ^^;

      I've gotten to the basing point for Ma'al. I decided I wanted to put ivy vines around the base. While I just did the vines out of green stuff I'm not sure what to do about the leaves. I have a GSW leaf punch that I want to use but I'm not sure how to prep the leaves so nothing weird comes in with them. It's been suggested to me to use the oven but was given no further details.  I have other ideas if I can't get the leaves to work but I'd really like to use them since I went through the trouble of getting the punch specifically for this. 
       
      So what would you do to real leaves to make them work for basing?

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.

      In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon.  I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body.  I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. 
      I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other.  It was not the most convenient method of painting.  He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! 
       
      because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game.  I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall.  I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
       
      Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. 
      Hope everyone like him.  This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.
       
      Everything on the beast is TMM.
