Well after the kind words I started looking back through some pics I had taken but hadn't posted of a finished model. This was finished in April and possibly one of the last ones I actually finished and enjoyed. I actually used oil paints for the dragon for blending colours etc aswell.

Nice.. I like that Dragon, very nice pose, and the paint sets it off.
If only we could still ride on Dragons for real... I would like to see our local 'Council Parking Enforcement Officer' slap a ticket on that...

Very nice Sam. Do you find a preference for oil paint. I really like the way they blend and their working time. I also like the 'dead flat' that can be achieved by force drying the oil paint with a light bulb.
Glad you saw fit to post your model.
Cheers,
Charles

Sam

Thats brilliant, a real class peice of work, and one you should be proud of. Maybe it's time to stop doing review kits, take a break from tanks and planes and concentrate on figures/fantasy, no one is going to tell you that theres a bulge in the wrong place, or that the dragons nostrils are half a tad too wide!!!!

Derek,
This was my first attempt at oils and using a colour wheel, I did struggle with the whole wheel concept also struggled with mixing the paint aswell. Managed to struggle through its now sitting in the bottom of a box somewhere . But I think from what you have typed I think I know where I have gone wrong.

Andy,
We'll find out at Telford as hoping to take it there for the weekend to display.
