T'Raukzul ice dragon

Recommended Posts

I had two of suckers these show up in the crate 'o' figs  today.  I'd forgotten how big the sculpt was.  I'll be watching this thread for inspiration, just in case I ever dig myself out from underneath this backlog of commissioned work and actually have time to paint something for me again . . .

Minus the bulk of extra heads and the very cool base, he's actually not that much smaller than Ma'al Drakar.  

 

For now, I need to figure out what to mount him to for painting so I have some hope of at least leaning him over while not touching him.  His feet are big enough I'm thinking of putting 2 small screws through a thin piece of plywood.  He's heavy enough without the base though...  I might just try hitting him with liner tonight and seeing how badly I mess him up as I go...

Now THAT's a Dragon!

 

Not a mere overgrown Lizard....but a True Dragon!!!!

 

Looking forward to see how you handle him!

( and then I can ruthlessly steal ideas)

So, being a work day up here in Canukistan, I'm not enjoying a long weekend like many of you, but over lunch I did a little google-fu and scribbling on paper and I definitely think there will be someone else along with "big blue".  

 

I've got a rough plan for a base and I think I have a breath weapon effect sorted (was playing around with ideas last night).  

 

As for a palette for the dragon, will be aiming for this sort of mix though placement is still be massaged.  Base will be snow-covered so I'll be saving some browns/greys for some protruding rocks to break up the white in the background.  Still need to find the appropriate "foe", but I'll keep digging tonight.  I should have time to start on the spell effect tonight as it may dictate in part which victim is selected.

Primed with a mix of Vallejo white primer and Reaper blue liner.  Quite happy with the coverage and colour, even if the 3 batches I had to mix didn't quite match.

He barely fit in my airbrush hutch so I'm concerned about Ma'al.  

 

Thanks for looking.

I just got my Bones III package and took a look at T'Raukzul. I am very pleased at the way they did the reinforcing for the wing slots, though it will still need some heavy pinning. It's still quite the chunky monkey. ^_^

I didn't actually pin mine.  I added some green stuff in all the holes before squeezing in the pieces with crazy glue and then added green stuff to the joins/gaps afterwards.  He seems pretty solid.  

 

Still need to find a way to hold him as I rubbed off some of the paint before it had dried.

So leaning towards this mini to face off against big blue.

need to pick up a few supplies tomorrow to attempt some of the crazy ideas I've got rolling around my head.  Been drawing out some ideas for the setting and hope to start carving foam soon. 

 

Thanks for looking.

For something a little different, my first stab at making dragon breath! 

 

It's a piece of clear acrylic rod with glue-fin glue with a layer of matte acrylic paste (wet right now).  The rounded base is one of those acorn shaped thingies from a vending machine that had some cheap toy in it that my kids wanted.  It's slathered with lube in the hopes of removing it once the whole thing sets up.  It I can't remove it, I have a backup plan.  Or I'll try again.

Basic shape of base, priming and cleric and some blocking in of base colours on the dragon are planned for tomorrow.  Hope the kids let me do some of it!!

You're using a similar technique to this one!

 

 

Thank you for sharing that!  Lots of cool stuff to be found in that thread!

No painting done, but the shape of the base is starting to come together.  Lumps in the back will be cut to rock-face looking texture.  Lots of messy sanding and cutting in my future. IMG_6362.thumb.JPG.a2b6f764eef650d509390299453f9bc5.JPG

 

Wasn't able to detach the plastic thing from the hot glue so will be trimming it and the plan is to cover what is left (minus lip and after roughing up the edges) with crackle paint to make it look like the breath weapon is hitting a visible shield.  

 

Thanks for looking.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
