Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...

One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....


So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...


Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....


So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...

As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....


About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......


OMG, please not again....


any and all comments gratefully ignored....

So, some work was done...

After searching for, and eradicating where found, any mold lines, some basic assembly was done.

The Tail and right leg were attached, and a first go at gap filling was done...



the head was attached with green stuff, and the putty pushed into place as well...


Holes were drilled in the base and legs for paper clip pins, after marking the lines for the proper angles.


The wings, which are molded flat, were bent over a fire extinguisher to make them look more natural. This is the same thing I did with Takhisis a while ago..


those are 2 of the bases I used for Takhisis and Nathavaar for those that remember those wips...

So now I am in a bit of a quandary...

do I attach the arms and putty, or do them separately and putty later...

anyone that has done this figure have an opinion?

All comments looked at!

Vyrminemus Venemun




That is ersatz, faux, Latin for Poison Woodland-Wyrm. Sorta like Vermithrax Pejorative, but different.

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      For the ReaperCon MSP Open this year, I painted the master copy of the White Drake I sculpted for Dark Sword (it will be released for sale in 2022).  I decided to do him in glacial coloration inspired by a glacier I saw while on a cruise in AK.
      For the Sculpting story, click here.
      For the Painting WIP, click here.
      Oh, and I won a gold medal for him in the Open category. 
       (Bear in mind that that is a 1" base)

      This is the second miniature I've ever painted, and the first with Reaper paints. I figured that a brush holder would come in handy for the all the Bones V painting in my future! The only Reaper paints I own are the Bones V paints (Learn to Paint kit and the two collections), plus two bottles of Reaper MSP 9038 Rainy Gray.
      Overall I'm really pleased with the way this first attempt worked out! I primed everything with 9038 Rainy Gray, then put on the base coats. The wings and ears gave me the most trouble as I had generously overpainted with 9410 Dragon Green, and was attempting a wet blend with 09468 Brilliant Red and 09218 Lava Orange. They required seven or eight coats before I got solid coverage over the green. Once everything was painted and cleaned up, I did a dry brush highlight pass, and then sealed it with two coats of Rust-oleum Crystal Clear Enamel and one coat of Testors Dullcote. I waited 24 hours between each coat to give it plenty of time to dry. I also masked off the gold pile prior to the Dullcote to make sure it would stay shiny.
      Some things that could have been better:
      The eyes should have been a different color to make them pop, instead of disappearing in the face. Additionally the right eye is quite muddy and the pupil gets lost amidst all the black veins. I was getting tired of working on Rocky at this point and wanted to get it finished. Ideally the eye would have been repainted. The left eye is better, but still gets lost in all the green. I forgot that my wash darkens the mini, and didn't paint in brighter colors to compensate, which means overall it's quite muted and dark.

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 

      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      Hi! I was just wondering if there were any reaper dragon minis close in size to the young green wizkids dragon? or any other dragons of any types that's not wizkids that's similar in size? I'm wanting to run an encounter with two dragons of the same size and would prefer not to double up on minis, and would love to expand my dragon collection to other companies than wizkids.
