those are great! 

love the contrasts, those little buggers are hard to detail. 

Oh metal, that explains the better details than I have on my bones versions.

That is exactly why I shelled out a little extra for the metal. It appears to me that the larger Bone models hold more detail than smaller ones like these. The only drawback on the blue dragon was all the extra putty filling and sculpting I had to do on his arms. Whereas if it was Bones, it might be all one piece.

Both of these are awesome, but the colors on the blue one blow me away. Can you tell us what colors you used, especially for the wing membranes and scales?

base was black, chest deep ocean, scales denim blue and I think the membrane was breonn blue. Highlighting used the triads except denim which doesnt have a triad, so I just mixed my own stuff.

 

I wish I had started with swamp green or black as a base for the other dragon. I probably would had the same effect as the blue. Instead I based him green an then did a wash that should have come out darker but for some reason did not. They were test models so I learned something new from them, which is always good.

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.

      Finally finished something for myself - woohoo! One of the set of Rocky baby dragons from Bones IV.  Went with a red scheme on this one.  Not going to win any awards with all the mold lines I missed!  Was supposed to be a quick speed paint, and yeah, that didn't happen.  Anyway, though he turned out pretty good, although the pictures don't show the highlights on the red.  Tried three different set-ups and still looks flat here.    Ah well.

      So my favorite inlaw and I were talking  Saturday morning, and she mentioned to me that she really wants me to paint her a dragon.  One thing lead to another and before you knew it, she was picking Blighfang out of the bones catalog.
       
      She then asked if it would be possible to base the colors on a favorite tea set, to which I really agreed because it's a little unusual

      I made a quick mock up that got the approval

      It didn't take me long to get to the store and pick up a dragon.w
      Last night I sat down and did the assembly.  There were a few gaps but nothing major. 
      Today I had about an hour to play with it, so I spent it using some Stynlrez to prime and sketch in my colors.


       
      Still really rough, and not really the blue-black I want to end up with, this is mostly a color sketch done really fast work the airbrush so I have something to start with. Pretty much everything from here will be brush work.  I'm a little on the fence about the yellow in the membranes, though I really like it on the belly.

      So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. 
       
      Anyway, I have a need in some upcoming games for a colossal red dragon as a lieutenant to the BBEG.  I'm expecting this to be a reoccurring character, so I want a decent paint job on it. That said, I am not aiming for much more that table-top quality here, and will be using every speed painting technique in my toolbox to crank this one out, hopefully before the next game in mid November.
       
      I am also going to use it to christen my new Patriot airbrush and airbrush booth.  Last night, I primed the whole model in Brown Liner.  It took about 3/4 of a bottle, and I didn't have too much over spray.  This is a big model.
       
      As I have said in the past, I like trying something new with every project; this one it is the use of an air brush.  I want to use this model to develop control and precision both with my Patriot and Sotar brushes.  Prior to this, I really haven't attempted much more than priming with an airbrush.
       

       
       
      Here's a picture of him in my spray booth.
       

       
      Have a great day!

      While running the 5e Princes of the Apocalypse campaign for my group, the adventurers had come upon a mad Druid-cum-Cultist at the top of his tower. His name was Elizar Dryflagon, and he'd become obsessed with the power of fire. I wanted to have something fun prepared for this battle, and when I found Aaron while looking through my unpainted stuff, I thought that he would be a perfect surrogate! A bit of OSL seemed an obvious choice due to the flames, but I didn't want to go overboard with it. In the end, the group ended up demolishing him and his summoned Smoke Mephits alike! Tough his appearance may have been short-lived, it was sure memorable!
