My DM (and boyfriend) wanted this guy to be a white dragon...I obliged. Biggest project I’ve worked on so far and the only “white” project I’ve worked on so far. Love how he came out. I might base him at some point, but I was happy enough to bring him outside in the real snow for a photo shoot to start.
I dont know when or why we will we will face this dragon...
but either way- I’m frightened...
With my bride away on a work trip this week, I decided to try to squeeze in a kinda big project... and after dithering about what it should be, I settled on painting one of my many Bones dragons.
Blightfang was actually a main antagonist in a D&D campaign I ran a while back... so that's the one I decided to paint!
Tonight was spent scrubbing him down, after he'd spent the day soaking in soapy water. I partly glued him together, and then got painting with Green Liner. I'm only partly assembling him, so that I can more easily access the harder to reach spots.
Also the back legs don't fit well into the base he came with, so I'm thinking that I might need to make my own out of cork... And this was supposed to be a quick project... we'll see how I do.
So, this guy showed up on my front door on Friday as a gift from a friend. Fun to paint, a pain to put together, and I couldn't get the tip of the tail to not droop to the floor to save my life (yes, I did several heat and cools). Also, chasing down the areas where the paint rubbed away (despite priming) was pretty frustrating.
However, Reaper is still unmatched as far as cool dragons go. And Greens are among my favorites. Anywho, enjoy!
So, I got ambitious again and decided to try my hand at a second dragon (and a third since I scored DDS for a steal online the other week). I've got Blightfang all painted with a basecoat and the first set of color, then forgot where I was with her and started gluing things together.. After affixing her to her rock, I found a small issue that my pre-paint fitting didn't show; namely, that the front rock sits 1/4" off the ground when the main rock is flat..
Now, I've not done any custom basing to this point, so I'm completely clueless as to the best way to 'fix' this issue.
Should I find a pebble in the garden and glue that sucker under the front rock?
Weight the back so that the front just sits in the air?
Carefully attempt to slice off the rock and do a complete custom jobbie?
Note - this (as with all my other current projects) is destined primarily for table-top use - we start HotDQ in a week or two.
