77108 Shadow Dragon as a Brine Dragon

Recommended Posts

fantastic, this is one of my favorite reaper dragons. not as dramatic and striking as some of the others from reaper, but small enough to be a challenge but beatable. also very versatile sculpt. I think I have seen this dragon every imaginable shade. great paint job by the way.

Beautiful!  :wub:  I love that colour and you did an awesome job with it and you did such a great job with the tail that I almost missed that you'd sculpted it on!

Thanks for all the nice words.

 

I think he turned out so smooth because I ended up putting a double glaze of peacock green on him as the last coats.

 

I must confess that I actually got in a hurry to get him to the table and dry brushed most of the body highlights. I originally used P3 Coal Black/ Meridius/ Arcane blue on him, expecting it to be a nice teal color. But once I was "done," I realized that he was actually quite blue and not really teal at all. So I gave him two or three coats of the Peacock to green him up a bit. It worked perfectly and he ended up almost exactly the color I was going for. And as a bonus it smoothed out all those dry brushing marks. You can still see the evidence of my impatience on the backs of his wings where the dry brushing is more obvious.

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.

      Hello, all!

      I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat.
       
      She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon.
       
      I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure.
       
      My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do.
       
      I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon.
       
      Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc?
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!

      This is my Reaper bones Viridius dragon that I call Magnus. This is the largest miniature I have painted and the one with the most complicated paint scheme I have ever attempted. It is by no means perfect but it was a blast to paint! 

      The troll finds out that he is Not the biggest thing on the battlefield.

       
      Comments, critiques, are welcome. 
      Thankyou for looking!
