77192 Kaladrax

that is a lovely creepy dragon.  Multiple colors on the bone is totally the way to go. 

even the base looks slimy. Nice touch with the pinkmarble, but I don't really like the red lips on the statue.  I know that some cultures painted statues, but ...

"He's still......juicy." Love how you painted him and the meaty insides look just right! Nice job!

Gruesome! I've had my kaladrax since the kickstarter, wish I could get to him.

 

Thanks Mutilatedlips,  this is from the Kickstarter as well...   I just had to accept the fact that it would turn out no matter what I did and have some faith..    it seems to have worked out for me.

Thanks Evilhalfling ..actually the lips are not as vibrant or that solid a red in RL.    The paint is actually flaked off to represent aging over time and the majority of the lips is the whitish marble look which I did not capture in the pictures.  You can see the same effect on the stylized hair where the colours have been "flaked" off to show ageing.  The base I tried to make it look moldy and covered in moss so I am glad that came across.

 

 

Thanks Pochi...  your feedback is really appreciated.   I am only sorry the pics don't show all of the colours and shades that are actually in the "meaty" parts.  He is such a big beast it was hard to get up close pics.

Congrats, as it looks awesome. The tinge of green in the bones (i assume from the ghoul skin) gives it a nice eerie touch that is complimented by the yellow brain matter in the skull. Very cool effects.

Great "wet" look for the meat parts.

The Bone colours are great!

The yellow glowy eyes, and the purple membranes, super!

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!

      I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

      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.
