@Adam_Barrow ; I must say that it's only like my 3rd time trying something special on a sword, so a bit normal that you didn't notice it before The male Vampire back a few page and the Mantic Vampiress I painted a while back are the other test I made for some spiffy metal. Those two aren't as obvious because I still use metallic paint, and it reflect in pictures so the attempt at shading on it isn't as noticeable. I used a bit more wash on Vlad to mute the metal a bit more and turns out it came out well in pictures, in fact I think it's better in pictures than in the flesh
I took a break after painted those few characters, but now I went back to painting and started another Mortarch, Walach on Dragon, so he should be done relatively soon! In fact the dragon is complete now, just need to finish the rider
I hope those pics looks right for everyone. I have a new computer that came with a 4k screen, so things are quite different for me. Also working with Windows 10 instead of XP (yeah I know, I was quite behind for that ), so I have to adjust to quite a few new things!
@Mioum The red of the armour looks really striking against the pale colours of the bone. I think the base could have used a little more attention though, as it's pretty big but seems quite bare. The mini itself is really nice, keep up the great work!
@Farmer7574 ; Yes it quite bare, I didn't put much though on the base honestly Since it's a model I made mostly for fun and that I might just use once in an actual game, didn't felt like going the extra miles for the base. But I have some rock spire thingy from the real Zombie Dragon kit, might see if I can use them there to add a little something.
Long time ago I wondered if there's a skeleton dragon mini suitable for a vampire to ride - I guess this answers my questions The monochrome dragon, along with the dry-looking terrain make for a nice background that makes the rider pop out more. Very good job there!
And as others have already said, the base really benefits from the added stones
Thanks Borgnine. I looked hard to find a good skeletal dragon, managed to find 3-4 models that looked right, and ended up choosing this one as it was one of the cheapest. The size impressed me so I'm very pleased with my choice, although the others looked nice too, just more expensive.
I also like the contrast of the dragon and rider, simple and effective I think
Brilliant as usual Those green edges on the armor and skirt are terrific! I also very much like the blending on the ghosts and the accents on the bony abbysal in the form of claws. A very well done queen
This is probably the most impressive thing that graced this forum It's sweet seeing a centerpiece Neferata being dwarfed as much as she dwarfs the skeleton. The sense of mass he shows, that terrific! Especially this stone leg he's draggin on the ground, preparing to lift it - i love this little piece! The details, the overall work, the conversion, the painting A great example of creativity for everyone here!
