Hello sentient painting creatures!
So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy. The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
In my quest to paint up every race class combination, I tackled this fun mini from Oathsworn Miniatures. One bad thing about pre-painting dragonborn is that they have unique powers based on their dragon color, so how likely is it that someone want to pick this mini in blue for the character? Oh well, another one down!
Well, I did it. this is the last of the Elmore dragons that Darksword Miniatures makes. This miniature is based on a pencil sketch by Larry Elmore and is one of the tallest freestanding dragons I have in my collection. He is also one of my favorite miniatures. from the huge wingspan to the quirky happy/puzzled expression on his face, this dragon is just amazing. He has also been sitting in his box waiting patiently for years because for years I thought he was a brown dragon which made him what I considered a real challenge to paint well.
Some reading and thought later and he has found his stride as a bronze dragon. It was also an excuse to break out some of my new color change paints on his wings to see what they look like over a broad expanse. The answer, as you will see below is amazing to look at, very difficult to capture in pictures. So anyway I thought I would let everyone see him. I hope you like what you see!
Here he is from the front with the color effect from the color change paints in the down position
and here he is again with the color change in the up position. the color flare is really pretty amazing in real life but I just cant seem to capture it well.
