    So this week I applied the base coats to the black areas on the armor as well as hydra turquoise to begin the crystals. Another shade has been added to the red armor, slowly building up the contrasts bit by bit.

    Looking good buddy. It's taken me far too long to realise he's swinging an uprooted tree.
    Good use of colour on what could have been a very monochrome mini

    The Mymidon (or golem as I like to call him) is really looking nice! While I'm slow responding, I wanted to say that I know where you're coming from about wanting to do the basing right. I feel like I spend more time worrying about how to improve my basing than I do actually painting which probably isn't ideal. I'm looking forward to seeing how you get on with that base though take your time and do it when you feel confident enough to tackle it. In the meantime, I'm happy to see awesome updates of these Dungeons and Dragons minis!

    Your doing a great job on a model that ide otherwise feel isn't a showcase model. Your painting is proving me wrong. Great job when someone can do this!!!

    I apologize for the model being in pieces I'm being a bit lazy and didn't want to put in together for these quick photos. So for the crystals I brushed a diluted white over areas of intense light, and once it dried I washed the whole crystal in a diluted blue army painter ink(I also added the ink into the cracks of the stone to being the OSL I am hoping to achieve later on/probably by my next update). I let that dry and then went back over the extreme highlights (mainly edging) with white again. I also add a bit of brighter reds as I build the shading up. Once the base blend of reds are done I plan on going back with glazes to start creating more extreme contrasts to try for the NMM red look. Feel free to leave any comments or advice/ideas, all freely given information is useful in my eyes.

    I'll also get a picture of the Dragon up next time. Not having much experience with doing bases I have been experimenting with trying to get a red obsidian look over parts of it. I think I might be getting some where with it.

    Thanks BAM! I'm really enjoying working on this model. I'm especially liking the large scale of the model compared to the space marines I'm used to painting. Gives me more room to work and practice. Now I just wish I had more time to sit and paint, but for some reason the gods of summer dont wish it to be so. :P

    I concur with SaintToad. The crystals are really looking nice and draw you into the model. Your progress pictures are a steady drip feed of quality painting and I look forward to each one! The idea behind your dragon base seems awesome and I really can't wait to see how you bring it to life. I will patiently await your next update
