I absolutely love it.  Painted this guy up as a silver but I am sincerely debating buying another just to see how close I can get to imitating your paint job.  In addition to the vibrant colors the basing is perfect.

Just amazing!  It's just one of those pieces that when I look at it, I want to go paint something myself.  Inspiring!

I've never done a dragon nor any kind of a larger thing before.  I got my Bones 5 sorted out, ready to be painted.  Maybe I'll just grab a dragon for my next "victim"???  🙂

He looks great! I especially like the dot pattern on his body (subtle) and the pattern on his wings. I also like how the leaves bring a little of that color down to the base. Nicely done!

I love the Freckling!  it looks amazing!  I have never been able to make that look so good mine always look like I spilled paint or accidently splattered paint on the miniature.

 

Great job!

Thanks!  This is high praise.

Glad it’s noticeable.  I definitely had “Autumnal” in mind when painting him.

Great job!

Thanks.  I thinned the paint barely, with a little flow improver.  And I used a very finely tipped brush.  And patience.

      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.

      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.

      I only saw one thread about crackle paste when I searched these forums.
       
      So, I’m going to share how it’s going for me.
       
      I started with washed and dried 1” and 2” Reaper Bases.
       
      I put this garbage on a 2 inch base first.

      Don’t buy it.  I got it at Hobby Lobby at the time because they were out of Folk Art.
       
      To be clear, this is Crackle Medium.
      It is meant to be painted on a primed or rough surface I guess, and painted thin. I put it on kind of thick.  It didn’t crackle at all!
       
      So, I got a tub of this stuff on Amazon.

      The directions state “put over a thin layer of PVA glue.”  Pfft, who has time for that extra step?
       
      Here is the result on a washed but otherwise un prepped set of bases.

      1 inch
       

      2 inch.
       
      Lousy!
      So, the surface needs something for crackle paste to work right.
       

      This is a 1” base with a thin layer of PVA glue.
       

      This is a 1” base with just hitting it with 220 grit sandpaper and washing it again.
       
      I also used the 2” base with dried crackle medium on it.  Not pictured.

      This is a 2” base covered in black brush on primer.

      Here is the result on the 2” base over dried crackle medium.  It was hard to get the stuff into a uniform layer, as the medium created a very hydrophobic surface, so the paste slides around too easy.

      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.
