Got the lining done.  Now color can be put down.  I am still not quite decided on base color.  I have a general look I want to do, but not sure how to go about it.  Might be too ambitious given the length of time that has passed since the last time I actually began painting any minis.  Who cares gonna throw down anyway.  Once I come up with a base color.

Not had time to get back to these.  Next step will be lining the edges between surfaces.  Spines, collars and such.

Three days in a row!  I've gone back over some spots on each one with a file.  Quite harshly in a couple places.  Particularly the join between the back legs and torso on the leaping hounds.  They've been resprayed with primer and now I will let them cure until Saturday,  I think.


Wotsat thing in the back left of the photo?  I'll tell you.  If you ask.  But it doesn't have anything to do with this project.

OK now we can call this 'coloring in'.  Fresh primer.  Not even dry yet.  There will need to be more file scraping action as some of the filled joints aren't as nice as I would like, or even close to good.  Keep in mind it has been almost two years since I've last assembled little lead toys.  Well that's life and that's it for today.  Going to let things cure for a bit.

As promised a pic-ee.  Obviously the front three aren't attached to their bases yet.  They're the leapers.  The landing ones are a fixed to their bases.  We shall see how they fare unsupported all day.  The runner far left needs a redo on filling on his left elbow.  Sort of visible in the picture.  The glue holding the joint failed while filling gaps.  The standing hounds had better hold as they have all most all feet touching greengook and they were pressed firmly into it.  Enjoy.

Time to work on these has happened!!!  I managed to get most of the filling done.  I pressed onward and got the bases filled and even some mounted on their bases.  Then I broke one.  Actually I broke two.  One while filling and one while filling the base with greenstuff.  Now they are curing.  Tomorrow I should be able to get a quick photo to post here.  Not today though as there is only half an hour left in Sept 11th for me and it is time for bed.

 :thumbup:

Then it'll be on to final touches with a file and then primer.

Very nice. The pilots are cast separate I take it?

No - the cockpit is a one-piece moulding which includes everything you see in the top photo.


 :jawdrop: :shock:

Jeesh.  Over 1000 views in four days.  I need to get cracking on these.  Maybe I'll get time on Labor Day Monday.  Saturday and Sunday are booked up.

Edit: The first Monday in September, in Canada, is our version of Labour/Labor Day.  Unsurprisingly, I did not get a chance to go near my hobby table today.  Fhere in the wuck do days off even go?  The clock on my tablet says 9:33 pm as I type this.  I'm fairly certain that it is actually only supposed to be 2:30 pm.  Ugh. :tantrum:

So these have been getting assembled.  Sadly, they've been in this state for some time.  We won't talk about that.  Have been trying to figure out how twitter works and this pic was copied to here from my twit-thing, so there's that.

These beasts will be accompanied by two groups of goblins also from Heresy.  The gobs haven't been started yet though.

Pfuff.  I totally understand.  I'll likely catch it pretty bad when my wife finds out, but I want new Heresy figures to be sculpted and the best way for that to happen is to give Andy money to keep going.

At the time of posting there are EIGHT, yes 8 Imperfect Dragons in the shop, beefcake.  Jump on one!  Call it an heirloom for your children if you have to.  You go now to buy.  Stop reading this and buy one.  Anyone else whose reading this as well.  Buy one now.  No telling if these will be the last ever!

16
I should really follow up my last statement by saying that I'm really excited to get my giant box of stuff.  With a dragon on top.

17
I've got two orders waiting for these.

18
I'm hijacking this thread to ask how the production is going with Fallen Boris and the other new Boris versions?

Today's Solar Eclipse.  The area I live in got to experience nearly 90% coverage of the sun.  I couldn't tell you the last time I saw this phenomenon.  It's pretty cool standing in your yard with the sun in the sky and it keeps getting darker.  Science.  Nature.  Mind blown.

Ps.  It's still happening as I'm writing this.   It has gone beyond its climax it's getting brighter and warmer.  Slowly.  Weird.

Sure is, not intending to remake the big moulds needed to make the torso, rock and wings. I'd sooner make a comepltely new dragon first! (I am not making one in secret, before anyone assumes that I am! But if i was, it would definitely remain secret until finished and moulded!)

Nope.  No more dragons.  I need more goblins.  The goblins also need a herd of beast men and women to defend their land against.

I haven't painted very much at all over the last couple of years

All too familiar with that myself. :hmmm

I like the degree of crackling.  It fits perfectly I think.
