So, here I am again, starting another WIP; I'm hoping I actually finish this one. :rolleyes:

 

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!

Yeah, I've dryfit mine; it's huge! But the airbrush will make it super quick to lay in basecoats, so even if you decide to go to brushes after that you'll have saved days. Relax, breathe, enjoy knowing you'll love putting it on the table when the time comes.

I'm a little scared to be honest.  This is a big mini.

He's big, but a relatively simple design.

 

Large surfaces, very few nooks and crannies (like skeletal dragon rib cages), no attached base.

Without the wings he resembles a famous ‘Zilla.  Good luck.  At least he fits in the booth.

following along to see how this goes. 

Also helpful that I have that same spraybooth, that gives me a great size reference. He is rightly huge.
