Hi all!

Just recently finished painting my first Ral Partha figure: a heavy-armored warrior and a pretty dragon! :wub:

Getting the pieces to fit together was a bit of a hassle (maybe it was a bad mould?), but after I got that sorted out I decided to go to with a classic blue dragon look.

Look at those chompers!!!

Used MSP Dragon Blue (29815) for the scales and wings, Sparkling Blue (09104) for the plate scales on the spine, and a mix of the Blonde Triad for the belly scales, horns, and wings.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this one. Certainly earned a display place on my desk.

Very nicely done! I've never seen this figure before. I'm guessing Bob Olley?

Thanks very much! ::):

Just checked the box: It is indeed sculpted by Robert Olley!

cool! I think the blues are great for a chaos lord's dragon.

 

Man, kudos for digging up an Olley sculpt Ive never seen, either.

Thanks for confirming even though the style kind of gives it away! It's really interesting how many sculptors are so easily recognizable.

      So my favorite inlaw and I were talking  Saturday morning, and she mentioned to me that she really wants me to paint her a dragon.  One thing lead to another and before you knew it, she was picking Blighfang out of the bones catalog.
       
      She then asked if it would be possible to base the colors on a favorite tea set, to which I really agreed because it's a little unusual

      I made a quick mock up that got the approval

      It didn't take me long to get to the store and pick up a dragon.w
      Last night I sat down and did the assembly.  There were a few gaps but nothing major. 
      Today I had about an hour to play with it, so I spent it using some Stynlrez to prime and sketch in my colors.


       
      Still really rough, and not really the blue-black I want to end up with, this is mostly a color sketch done really fast work the airbrush so I have something to start with. Pretty much everything from here will be brush work.  I'm a little on the fence about the yellow in the membranes, though I really like it on the belly.

      So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. 
       
      Anyway, I have a need in some upcoming games for a colossal red dragon as a lieutenant to the BBEG.  I'm expecting this to be a reoccurring character, so I want a decent paint job on it. That said, I am not aiming for much more that table-top quality here, and will be using every speed painting technique in my toolbox to crank this one out, hopefully before the next game in mid November.
       
      I am also going to use it to christen my new Patriot airbrush and airbrush booth.  Last night, I primed the whole model in Brown Liner.  It took about 3/4 of a bottle, and I didn't have too much over spray.  This is a big model.
       
      As I have said in the past, I like trying something new with every project; this one it is the use of an air brush.  I want to use this model to develop control and precision both with my Patriot and Sotar brushes.  Prior to this, I really haven't attempted much more than priming with an airbrush.
       

       
       
      Here's a picture of him in my spray booth.
       

       
      Have a great day!

      The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.

      Bones 4 core set #20.  Could not find a release # for him yet.  I took this guy and a few of his pals to Reapercon to work on in my spare time (ha!) and got him base coated using some of the new Pathfnder paint set.  I couldn't help but notice the chickens and the look of terror on his face, thus the name.   Finished him with a basic drybrush and wash for table top play.
