WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60469-77279-narthrax-copper/

 

My copper dragon Palorforthen, who I painted Narthrax up as, is a very different sort of story. 

In my world, dragons do not have alignment based on color. They're good or evil by their own personality, not the color of their scales. Dragons also are not sorted by 'blue is lightning, red is fire', either, but rather into elemental categories of Fire, Air, Water, Earth, and Arcane. Arcane dragons are the strongest, for they are naturally gifted at magic and can use a wider variety of attacks than the others, who are limited to their breath weapon attack.

In this world, a large section of the main continent is ruled by a mated pair of large purple Arcane dragons, who are quite evil and power hungry and extort the smaller and weaker dragons living within their borders. 

 

The female of the pair, her first clutch of eggs hatched and were playing at the front of the lair, were stolen by thieves while the male was gone hunting and she was resting. Tragically, during transportation all but one was killed, from mistreatment, neglect, and exposure. The remaining one was caged and hauled on a cart, crying the whole while.

They passed into the hot desert territory of a young copper Fire dragon named Palorforthen, who heard the calls and went to investigate. Spying the stolen hatchling, he swooped in with his fire blazing to ward off the thieves and break the youngster free. Not finding any parents, and the young hatchling too young to speak or otherwise show where he lived, Palor took him back to his lair and for weeks he tended and fed the little hatchling, thinking of him as a adopted little brother almost...until the mother and father came calling.

The evil pair were quite ready to slay Palor, viewing him as the thief that had stolen them in the first place, if not for the little hatchling's obvious affection for him. After listening to his terrified babbling, they decided to believe him and, seeing how much their little son cared for him, forced Palor into servitude for them and bullied him back to their lair as a companion and guardian for their remaining son, leaving him under threat of horrid torture and death to not let any harm come to him or to make him upset.

In fear of his own life, and in truth having grown very fond of the little hatchling, he bowed to their wills and became a servant, tending their son as a playmate, older brother, and protector....always under the watchful eyes of his sadistic parents.

Well deserved. I loved seeing him in person.

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running.  Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. 
      I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
