In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon. I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body. I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with.
I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other. It was not the most convenient method of painting. He was also very prickly... very, very prickly!
because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game. I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall. I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns.
Hope everyone like him. This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.
More vintage minis from my childhood. Been soaking a dozen or so in isopropyl for about a week to get the 40 yr old enamel paint off them. With much scrubbing some of them came out pretty clean! Will post as they come along, here's one of my all-time favorites. I remember when I bought him in a little attic hobby shop in Ithaca, NY. Unfortunately I don't remember the packaging. Such a stoic little dude...any ideas?
My next project is another ranger. I already have a cool male elf ranger, but thought it might be nice to add a female version. So going through the Bones minis I came across Nienna.
Unfortunately her face detail was very shallow and detail was overall a bit hit and miss. I love the pose, though.
Out comes the scalpel, greenstuff and bitz box.
Two evening sessions later I swapped the head and weapon, shaved away some of the front detail and resculpted the area.
I am not entirely finished yet, but soon I can establish the base colours.
So this is me trying to paint non-metallic metal for the first time. The mini is one of the dwarves from thehnolog's castlecraft line. Since it is my first, I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope I'll get better at this over time. All comments and suggestions regarding NMM are welcome. Thanks for looking!
