Opps, I did it again. Random Rainbow Dragon V2.0.

Recommended Posts


Yeah I am doing it again. Kinda mad I know. This time I chose Stormwing to do as I have done Ebonwrath, my wife is planning to do Deathsleet and my daughter is planning Kryphrixis. So the rolls....



Marine Teal.



True blue.



Imperial purple.


Kinda boring really. Oh well. Here we go.




Assembled. Needs se filling around the wing roots. Will need to think about the base. Really boring.

Finally some progress.

Brown Liner. I experimented this time by using the airbursh to apply the liner. It looked good intially but I was a little worried that on some of the higher areas the liner whiped off. Oh well.20171115_215938.thumb.jpg.34de7a956bce2186641cfc6e12c86119.jpg20171115_215953.thumb.jpg.14c86410db9dbbac9ce3e9ed4c03ac2e.jpg20171115_220004.thumb.jpg.88df6b2c95d9dbdb3ab1673e9106e84c.jpg


So then some pre-shading using pure black.



Then the first pass with Marine Teal. Given my colour rolls I am going to try something a bit odd and rather than highlight with a lighter colour and highlight with the slightly darker True Blue with final highlight of Imperial Purple. Not sure how this is going to work bu that is the plan at this point. Hmmm. Anyway the Marine Teal.

Oh the silly season has begun and there seems so little time of late to paint.


Finally I have progress to show, this time on the base.

Laser cut, round, 100mm diameter, MDF with "Kneed It" coating stamped with a Basius "Kings of War" block stamp.



And base coated with ink wash. I still don't know what the blus thing is meant to be. Standard perhaps?



Some drybrushing in parts and then some flocking. Then I have to seemlessly blending the dragon's feet.

      After about 3 weeks it’s finally done! I’ve had a concept for a white dragon bouncing around in my head for a while, and I shy away from painting overly in white for the same technical reasons as everyone else, but this completes a loop in painting for me....
      My first dragon ever ever was a white (Reaper’s Deathsleet), and I was doing great just to get somewhat clean lines. After about a year and a half, I wanted to give it another try to compare how much I’ve learned. It’s been difficult since I’m not artistic, but learning to paint minis has been a great experience. I just took a picture of my first white dragon and this current white dragon.
      Sorry for the crappy photos, but I hope you enjoy the frost dragon/albino-ish concept.
      Please let me know what you would have done differently. Criticism and advice are always welcome! Goodnight :)

      I started this project yesterday with Reaper Bones Stormwing after painting a blue one. I intended to paint another in blue to replace the one I gave away, but instead I thought it was time to do another white dragon!
      My first dragon was white, and I had no concept of painting techniques other than a fledgling understanding of brush control. This was a little over a year ago, so I’m painting this one to do a side by side comparison of how far I’ve come.
      I reprimed it white over the black, then went Lothern Blue (Citadel) base. I’ve done some gradual damp/dry brushing to work up gray/blue, gray, now hard transitioning into medium beige.
      Next step is going more into the whites now that the undertones are there. Breast scales are not undertoned, just straight gray. Going for pink/purple/ice blue highlights...almost like pearlescent finish on horns. I’ll figure it out on the wings and breastplates.
      Advice welcome!!

      I painted this as a gift for a friend of mine who got me into DND. He ran Rise of Tiamat for over two years, and that was my introduction to DND and I’ve been hooked ever since. It just seemed like an appropriate gift for all the work he put in!

      Learning from my previous forays into blending with wings, I decided to try for something more challenging.  In doing this, I learned that sometimes the parts of bigger minis don't fit together as well as one hopes, which in this case resulted in some  improvisation, especially around the foot/base socket and the wings.  But I am enjoying how he came out.  He was wondrously bumpy.  :-)
