Miniature Monday – Kar Drakir (updated)
Welcome to the last installment of Mini Monday before our break. How will things go on? Check the bottom of the article – and enjoy some great minis on the way down 😀 For our last monday miniature for now whe chose a mighty dragon warrior. As always with dragons there are many different colour choises…

I wasn’t sure how to use this mini, it doesn’t fit into any of my RPG campaigns, so I just went for a nice color scheme idea, silver and ivory.
As you can see the mini is still a WIP with all the details missing, but at least I can see how the colors work together, and fortunately the combination looks quite nice. I’m a bit sad I didn’t get to finish the base, but to be honest I’m not 100% sure how it’s supposed to look, anyway… probably something desert-like.
Dirk painted his version as the evil overlord and endboss in a planned adventure, but didn’t tell too much about it in order not to spoil me.
He went for a green dragon as parent for this half-dragon, matching with our existing bones green dragons. The scales need another highlight, but Dirk is happy with the dark overall look, especially the armor. As a bonus, he added the wings of the succubus from Bones I. Really an impressive villain!
John used a bronze dragon as basis for this halfdragon.
He went with a verdigris style shadowing and blue sword and shield to mimic the bronze dragons electric breath- great idea by the way! I also like how the sigle scales are highlighted, esp on the wonderfully grim looking face!
The metallic dragons dominate this week, as Jim painted his mini as a Bozak (Dragonman perverted from bronze dragon eggs) from Dragonlance.
All the metals look great on this one, well done, Jim! From skin to weaponry the shine is quite realistic, which brand of colors do you use?
Update by Dirk: Arjen send us a WIP shot of his reptile barbarian.
Seeing this bare chested warrior, Arjen decided to make a barbarian out of him, so he chose to paint a leather armor – a fresh different approach, didn’t think of that! He chose purple for his reptile’s skin, with a fittingly tunic. I like the work so far – perhaps you can show us the finished work.
So, how will we go on? The next few weeks we’ll have a break for family reasons, after which we’ll hopefully be back posting. Maybe a weeks later or so, who knows, but we do our best 😀
To give you something to look forward to, we prepared a new list of minis! That way you can check out what’s coming and maybe even start painting some of them 😉 If you have more suggestions, just tell us via Email or comment.
