Good day Oldhammerers!
It seems like I finaly found a forum where I can share my interest for old GW stuff :D
I am quite a slow painter so over the years I kind of collected way to much for my brushes.
Hopefully this WIP will motivate me to continu my work!

So first of all, here is a look on my last completed project, a Nightmare Dragon, Carnehov:

Excellent posing/basing! (I'm unfamiliar with the model, but assume the columns are not part of it?)

Look forward to seeing more :)

It is an attempt to make this guy a little more dynamic (or at least give a context to its awkward position!) :

As for the columns, they came from a GW blister of dungeon scenary pieces pretty much like this one:

I thought I recognised the pillars :)

But then I thought they might have originally come in with the dragon and are being re used.

Regardless, really nice stuff mate.

I really love the colours you've used for this dragon, very good balance between fantsay and natural. The autumn leaves look good and the pose idea is an excellent one (maybe the stones look a little too round but it's just me being picky).
Did you buy coloured birchseeds or did you taint them yourselves, the composistion with real branches is superb. Remind me to PM you next time I go to Montréal ;)

That's some mighty fancy green stuffing pardner!

The composition was a very good idea given the original model's pose. Gives it a nice sense of motion, power and connectedness with the scene.

Basing and painting is great also, easy to tell you have a soft spot for this Dragon model with the thought you have put into it.

Now post up moar of your stuff! :)

The leaves came from Secret Weapon Miniatures and the branches are actually roots of tomato plants glued upside down, tainted with washes. These do an amazing job since they don't tend to break when dried.

Very nice model and so dynamic !
Come on just go ahead and keep on painting :)

Only thing I miss here is a bit more textured rock bricks , look a bit to flat.
