Mango Timur (77148), and Ragnaros (77150) Bones Knights

Recommended Posts

 This past week I started the Dark Heroes set from the Bones 1 KS, and painted the two knights: Mangu Timur and Ragnaros, Evil Warrior, from that set.   I didn't attempt anything too fancy on them, just did them up for tabletop use.

great job giving the armor depth. awesome bases simple but good.

 

 

Thank you, viking hank!   I am rather pleased with how the armor came out on these guys for quick and simple dry brushing.

 

Very Nice!

 

 

Thank you Xherman!

You did a great job on both of those!  I really like the basing you did for them.

 

 

Thanks, hiddenone!  These are mounted on fender washers, and then I applied some dried coffee grounds to look like dirt and then some green flock.

That's pretty cool. Never thought of using coffee grounds before.

If you do, you need to use real coffee, not instant.  Use used grounds, and let them throughly dry out in the open air before using for basing. I've heard some folks worry about using food items for their basing for fear of molding, but I have never had that problem (and I've been using them for many years now).  Granted, between the glue and the Dullcote spray, not much air of moisture can actually get to the grounds anymore.

Howdy,

 

  Just wondering if there is a gallery somewhere for your "All Bones About It" project. Don't tell me I have to put forth some effort and work back through your blog...

 

Please?

 

 

P.S. I'll do it if I have to, but it doesn't hurt to ask?

Sorry, but no there isn't. I began working on it at least a year before I had even joined the forums here, so never started a forum based gallery, and never thought to do one on the blog itself. I'm afraid you're going to have to do it the long way. :(

I'd like to think that it is worth the effort. :)

      Buckle in folks, I've got a lot for you today.  Over the past year or so I've slowly collected and painted a set of the five Chromatic Dragons.  When I first started collecting minis I'd picked up a couple of Dragons from Safari Ltd which were easy to find at craft stores.  Rather than buy a bunch of new models from Reaper or elsewhere, I decided to see if I could make a unique set of Dragons using mostly Safari Ltd models.  I flipped through my Monster Manual and browsed online catalogs and slowly picked out models that I wanted to use to represent each of them.  I eventually ran out of models that I liked and I supplemented a McFarlane Toys dragon for the Red.  I finally completed them early this past summer:
       

       
      The White Dragon

       
      Read on for More:
       
      The Black Dragon
      Moving up the Chromatic Hierarchy, we have the Black Dragon, represented here by the Safari Ltd. Cave Dragon.  This is actually the model that inspired me to paint up the dragons, as it looked so much like the 5E Black Dragon artwork.

       
      Read on for More:
       
      The Green Dragon
      Next up, we have the Green Dragon represented by the Safari Ltd. Twilight Dragon.  Funnily enough, that sculpt is also available in a green variant as the "Forest Dragon," but i already had the black copy on hand.  It was all getting painted over anyways.

       
      Read on for More:
       
      The Blue Dragon
      The last of the Safari Ltd. Dragons, this is the Fog Dragon, which got a tiny bit of green stuff to look the part of a Blue Dragon.

       
      Read on for More:
       
      The Red Dragon
      I used up the biggest Safari Ltd Dragon with the blue, and I wasn't seeing anything I liked from any of their direct competitors, so I chose something a little different for the Red.  I ended up with the Komodo Clan dragon from McFarlane Toys Dragons Series 2.  And though this guy showed up in shades of red, I wanted to paint it myself, so it got primed and re-painted.

      It was a lot of fun painting up these guys, and I like having a unique collection.  I'm also glad they're all done.  Though I do still have a Shadow Dragon and a Dracolich primed and waiting for paint... and then all the dragons that are still boxed... and then that big five-headed guy I keep meaning to get around to... and then all those new dragons coming with Bones 5...
       
      Which dragon do you like best?

      I am about halfway there with an ID for this fellow.  I think it says on the bottom:
       
      Ral   84
      Partha
       
      It is hard to read though. I found this fellow lurking amongst some Bretonnians earlier this morning.

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.

      The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.

      Some guy from the Kickstarter  project.  Cast in plastic, some of the detail was really sharp, some was not. The face was weird, I could not figure out if he was supposed to have a mustache or not.  Good enough for tabletop play.
