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.

Ooooh, green liner.  I'm so going to have to pick some of that up alongside brown liner when I order next.   I'm also liking how the base is looking so far, although my natural curiosity ponders what tricks will be done in order to have the tail being off the base full blend together (yeah, wording isn't my strongest thing tonight it seems) ^_^

The last picture isn't Blightfang's final placement, so the tail won't be quite so far off the base, though the tip of it will. 

 

I'm going for a look kinda like this:

With a base that looks like this:

Okay, those look downright epic. ^_^

Tonight I used Burgundy Wine on the wings, and then while it was still wet, I blended in some Vallejo Red Leather.

Then I did the same for the spine fin.

The chest scales got a blend of the Red Leather and Burgundy Wine at about a... 3:2 ratio, but I didn't actually measure it.

Then I did some basing! Cork, gravel, and coffee grounds.

I'm not sure how happy I am with Green Liner as compared to Brown/Grey liner... 

What do you not like about it in comparison?

It seems to rub off a little easier

Washed the dragon with some reconstituted citadel leviathan purple wash.

Then went over it with a green liner:dragon green 1:3 dry brush. The base was primed with Stynylrez airbrush primer.

I managed to get in about 30 minutes of work today. This is with a later of pure dragon green. Going to add some yellow for the next layer.

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running.  Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. 
      I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.
