Kyphrixis the Rainbow Dragon (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Magnificent! Lovely color transitions and darklining. Those wings remind me of those rainbow-algaed thermal springs from Yellowstone and similar.

Well Done!  I love the combination of subtle blending and sharp color changes.  That is really nice!  in particular I love the orange edging on the wings, it defines them beautifully

A massive "Thank you" for all the comments and likes! It's very much appreciated.

 

A special shout out is also due to the forumites from the Off Topic part of the forum who convinced me not to start again when I'd hit that 80% finished painting slump that I seem to run into all the time. I was ready to get rid of all that black, so it's a good thing they convinced me otherwise!

@Kuroneko this model and the portal were featured on ReaperLand today!
 

If you check the VOD it was at about 20-24 minutes in. (Time index 15:20 — 15:24 or so)

Thanks! I wish I could have watched it live but it was too late to switch shifts.  Everyone on the stream was so nice, I'm going to bookmark it to rewatch when I'm having one of my "bah, I can't paint at all" pessimistic days.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
