WyrmGear 77177 Steampunk Dragon

Recommended Posts

whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.

Really like the black wash.

 

Thank you, I wasn't sure how that was going to turn out. When it was wet the entire time I was resisting the urge to wipe it off because I was deathly afraid it would ruin the wings. Glad that I didn't because it turned out good but in the moment I was really nervous.

‘Yes, I often hit a point in painting where I think “that doesn’t look bad” but then I decide to make it a little better by adding a wash or another color layer or something.  Then once I start on the addition, the whole mini suddnly reverts to a mess and I can only stare at it and think “oh gods, what have I done??!!” and “how can I fix it?”  But, in the end,it’s almost always a better mini than if I stoped at the “not bad” stage.

Ya that was the second I put the wash on the wings. My brain was screaming $25 mini! argh! Ultimately though the wash did really improve the look. Glad I did it but i was freaking out for a bit there as that was around 6 hours into painting and the very last thing i wanted to do was start over on the wings! :P

      My wife, @Shinma, started to paint the Clockwork Dragon several years ago. 
      It got to a point where the body was nearly done, and the wings and base remained.
       
      We had prepared a big gear salvaged from a monitor stand, sanded down by a friend.
       
      Then, inspiration and drive was lost and it sat on the shelf, staring at her, unfinished.
       
      Recently she allowed me to finish it. I did the wings, small part of the body, along with the base.
      Here's our result!

      Spent just about a week on this one. It was fun. My GS work sucks but it's done. C&C welcome.

      I mostly modelled this off Michael Proctor's paint job, and used it as an exercise in learning to push contrast and glaze unlike colours. The photos make the colours seem to little more vibrant than they are in real life. Overall very pleased with the result!

      I finally finished this dragon. I took a lot longer for the base because I got a little carried away, but I'm really super happy with how it came out.  To begin, this was a request from my mother in law to take inspiration from a set of china she has.   
      Here's the plate
       
       
      In the end though I'm really happy with how the dragon come out and took lots of pictures:

       
      I'm going to do my best next time to rein in the base a bit, but I'm super happy with how this came out.
