Last update for tonight. I finished brown linering the wings and the other rock and had some time and brown liner left over so I started putting some on the body and necks. That leaves me further along than I'd hoped for tonight so I'm in pretty decent shape so far.

So the bad news is that our weather is predicted to be really awful today...they shut down schools and government buildings and told people to stay put if possible because we're under a flood watch. 

The good news is that means that I'm working from home today. I have to do a bunch of stuff for the next couple of hours, but then I should be able to get things set up so my work computer is locked into a 4+ hour process....so that means I'll be able to do some painting. :bday:

So far the rain hasn't been that bad, in fact, I debated heavily on whether I was going to go in today. Historically, whenever I decide to work from home due to the weather it ends up being nothing. We'll see if that holds true again.

Ok I got the scales on all of the necks and heads basecoated, which is right where I wanted to be at the end of tonight.

The brownish red is MSP Bloodstain Red, the wine colour is MSP Gothic Crimson, the yellow-orange is MSP Pumpkin Orange, the Pink (which is getting a ton of glare) is Vallejo Nocturna Reddish Flesh, the redder orange is MSP Burning Orange.

Nice! I like your colors. I am going to have to steal your color theme for a pretty girl's dress or cloak.

Very cool!  That violet was surprisingly awesome!  For a minute I thought you were going alienscape... now I'm intrigued...

I should note that the purple was only one coat. There were a couple of spots that could've used some touch-up, but for the most part I was very, very pleased. I am not often a fan of Scale75's paints because I find them too thick and you have to shake them forever, but this one was a beautiful consistency and obviously covered very, very well. It was a pleasant surprise because it was exactly the colour that I wanted but I was nervous about using it since I've had a lot of trouble with my other Scale75 paints. If it had been the first Scale75 paint I'd used (or the first 5....) then I would've understood the hype behind them.

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      Got this one done at a painting day in about 3 hours of work, but interrupted by cups of tea. :)

      Hello, all!

      I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat.
       
      She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon.
       
      I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure.
       
      My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do.
       
      I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon.
       
      Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc?
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!

      This is the wolf from the bones animal companions set (77216).  Googled a bunch of wolf photos and then the wolfie painted up really quick.  Might put some plants on the base later.
