That was pretty simple. Dark grey zinc primer (dries fast, is a little bit rough an has the perfect color)+ brown violet from the airbrush + dark green thin color, a little bit of drybrushing, tadaaaa.
Frank: A quite dark color for the bones (not sure if black, violet or even something different)and glowing blueish skulls - a tribute to the White Wanderers of Game of Thrones... or something like that.

GAME OF THRONES Figures, yeah, especially Tyrion, Jon Snow with Ghost and the White Wanderers, that would be really cool (if anyone thinks why the heck not Khalissi, hey, would YOU like to have a 54mm figure of her? Andy? Anyone else? But no figure, I would prefer the 1:1 original in that case, harhar!)
OK, than this will be a cool paintjob, a cold blueish... weird!
An airbrush is a wundervoll thing. I continued with yellow and aibrushed some areas with orangeish red. Finally, it was all washed wit dark red (Carrobourgh Crimson again) to smoothen the color even more. Thats the result:
tigrazor....This is just fantastic mate , such a vibrant and colourful piece!! Talk about eye candy!! There's just so much to like about this I don't even know where to start... After seeing this I might have to go fantasy for a while (that sounds bad ) and open my Fontegris Miniatures 54mm " A Spring Morning "!! There goes even less space on my work bench ! Cheers, Shay
Frank I started it this morning before work and have to say its very time consuming. Took me 1 1/2 h to paint his head and neck bones in different colors from dark brown to beige. And its not even complete - so is the rest of course. The skulls arent the problem itself, its more the bones, because here you have to paint around the skulls as exactly as possible. Well, who said that modelling and figure painting is easy?
Shay I remember the brand name, but never got some of these. Looks brilliant so far.
Andy Yeeeep, theres more coming.

Shay, you are the FIRST person I know so far having Fontegris figures in his collection (I do not know if this brand is still selling...) Maybe a pic of the box art/castings?
Sorry to hijack the thread tigrazor...Here you go Frank Fontegris!! Also they are still to be found...check out this Belgian site Domino. Fast service and very reliable..heck just check the rest of their deals under "Promotions"!! Shay
Nothing to warry about, Shay! You cant learn enough, especially from Belgian modelers. I always wanted to visit an expo there, because everytime I see a work from a Belgian modeler, its a piece of art. One of my favourite artists from there is Marijn van Gils. Have you seen his Zappa figure?
I sure have buddy! Absolutely stunning, it's a different story seeing it online or in a magazine..but in real life you appreciate what he does even more!! My favourite until now is his shadow-box..."Marijn shadowbox". It was at a show late last year, highlight of my day, a real artist!!

Lucas: Why should you have troubles whilst painting and I have none? Right? WRONG! Yesterday I had the great idea to make some changes on my innitial design for my Dragon Trainer and today I will do the changes. Means bye bye to the hairdo and redesign the whole head. Gargl!
Shay: Thannks for the links mate! Fontegris is, how to say, a little bit special! The figures look well and greatly sculpt, but are not my cup of tea... Sadly, but it is always fine to see totally new stuff (I haven´t seen the most of these figures). And Marijn is one of the best builders worldwide! Thanks again!
There she comes again. And now its getting a bit tricky: Painting the dragons bones and accenting them is very time consuming. The head is almost done, and thats the direction how its supposed to look like overall. The throne was treated with the airbrush and needs some toothpick treatment for the rivets.
