Looks great! Gauth is known to be a bit of a pain to paint (and keep standing) but I like what you've done here. The fleshy inside of the wings is a nice contrast.

I noticed the trouble getting him to stay standing! That's why for a base I used a blank CD, and glued down the tip of his tail to keep him at least mostly upright!

@deathly halliwell and @Rickdraco agreed with both of you.  I think this paint job looks fun, but i learned my lesson to on keeping this thing vertical.  I when glued his wings together as if extended above his head.  i havent figured out how to keep him up.  He ends up eating the ground.  I thought pinning his tail back would counterbalance him, but his legs give out.  I think it's a lost cause for me.  Just good practice, but will need to toss and not look back.  

 

I did the CD thing, too for holding him and it worked well. Until he ultimately folded over.  Wah wah.

I think I remember reading somewhere (this forum, very likely) that the best way to keep him upright is to pin his legs to the base. Might require a long-ish pin, and careful drilling. I'm going to attempt this when I assemble mine. YMMV.

      Hey everyone! I completed Dorella last September and just found some time last week to paint and add her pet next to her. Here's Dorella Kreeg and her Giant Rat familiar named "It Tickles". She's a sorcerer in The Hook Mountain Massacre Written by Nicolas Logue, the third chapter in the Rise of the Runelords adventure path published in 2007 for Pathfinder.
       
      60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman was sculpted by David Summers and the 07031, Giant Rats (familiar) were sculpted by Julie Guthrie. There is a magnet under the rat that has no base so it can stay securely on Dorella's base or be removed when the other model is used individually on its 25mm base.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
