I only had about a week total (yay, procrastination!), so I had to do a model that would paint quickly. That meant not Kaladrak or Nethyrmaul. It’s gotten to the point where I can bang out metallics like nobody’s business in very little time, so Wyrmgear was top of the list. Plus, it’s a clockwork monstrosity and, um, Skaven, so it’s not a big leap.
Drybrushing, more drybrushing, washing, etc. This guy went together stupid easily, and painted up almost as easily.
If I’d had more time, I’d have cut the wings: along the top of that thickest “spine” and angled them outwards ~45°. It’s entirely too flat a model.
This is the model with the screwy legs. I did the best I could but, in the end, even that wasn’t good enough.
Those feet are all over the damn place. Fortunately, the basing sch eme I’m using here is pretty bland, so nobody noticed it until I pointed it out. (Which, of course, I did to everyone who commented on how good the model looked. “Thank you but look at these stupid feet!”)
If you do work on this model: be careful with the wings: they’re not Bones; just sheet styrene. That’s good for detail, but it means that trying to melt them will ruin them.
Did I say “Pathfinder Red Dragon?” I lied.
I planned to run it as a Young Frost Dragon, so I figured I’d paint it appropriately. Plus, this is the model that got gunked up by being painted on without primer and then stripped, so I kind of didn’t care. It wouldn’t be inaccurate to say that I kind of hated this specific figure: that’s why it basically got a couple of drybrush coats, a wash, and done.
Obviously, this guy would have benefited from a lot of things: some color variation on the belly and or the wing membranes would be at the top of my list. More around the face wouldn’t be inappropriate.
But, like I said, screw this model. Ugh.
