Blacksting Wyvern (speed paint)

Recommended Posts

Certainly different from Siri's version, but yours is a really good piece in its own right. You guys are making me want to paint my own sooner, rather than later, if I can just find the time.

Looks awesome! I like how you used black and white next to eachother and still made it look naturally, great job :)

That looks great   I would be happy to use or display that.  I like the color choices.

 

And what recipe did you use for your rocks.  That is some really great looking granite in the archway, both in color and texture.  If you can do that in a speed paint, I would love to hear your methods

The rocks recipe is quite easy:

  • Mix of Tan, Cinammon Brown and Black at different random ratio for the base colours.
    Apply to stones randomly (don't really need to be neat) to get some variety
  • Cover with a "poor man's blackwash" (dollar store craft paint watered-down a lot).
    This lets the sculpt texture do all the work on shading.
  • Some Agrax earthshade in the recesses to hide the crimes
  • light stippling on a few rocks (to be fancy)

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is my vignette featuring the Blacksting Wyvern hunting down a 500MD helicopter.

       
      This is a little project I had fun with recently.
      i painted the Blacksting Wyvern from Bones a bit more than a year back and was quite happy with it collecting dust on my shelf (original post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86236-blacksting-wyvern-speed-paint).
      Then, I stumbled across a 1/48 helicopter model I had almost forgotten about. 1/48th scale does fit nicely with 28mm heroic scale.

       
      The creatives juice started flowing and I decided to make a surprise encounter between the modern warfare machine and the legendary beast.

      I experimented as well with epoxy resin + food coloring for water, tree bark (for rocks), a couple of random 3D-printed broken statues/rubbles and toilet paper plaster for the terrain. I didn't have a clear acrylic rod for the flight stand, but wooden dowel painted black blends OK.
      I also forgot how much fun it is to build and paint plastic models. It is both similar and very different from miniatures painting.
       
      I'm quite happy with the result even though I could have been neater on a few places and it is a bit big for my light box.
      C&C appreciated

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
