Fire Drake by Nerdy-Viking
Fire Drake
So this was one of the first dino miniatures I decided to paint, and ultimately decided to turn this guy into a Fire Drake from the Dark Sun D&D campaign. I think as first paint jobs go this is really good. I owe all this technique to DMScotty and other youtubers who paint minis and other D&D stuff.

Quick Dino by Nerdy-Viking
Quick Dino
I have no idea what the hell this dinosaur is called but all I know is that they headbutt everything and can bum rush you like a crack head. This one I did within 5 minutes, just dry brushed a bunch of reds, orange and brown with some yellow spattered here and there. Dry brushed a majority of it along with the base. Hey these are for tabletop use not showrooms and I'm new at this.

Eye Demon by Nerdy-Viking
Eye Demon
Remember that Beholder? Yeah well he got transformed into something worse. So what happened was after the eye tentacles turned into a bust, I decided to make a bunch of horns, stab em full of toothpicks and jab them into this dude's head. Following that I slathered him in hot glue, using the DM Scotty's technique to make a kind of veiny texture. Then after having it sit on my desk for hmmm 2 weeks, I decided to flat black prime him, base coat him dark purple, add a secondary coat of lighter purple focusing on the veins, a touch of dry brushed red, burnt umber for the horns with a burnt brown on top, and added vanilla ice cream white to the teeth and spikes. All in all it was worth it. The Frost Ranger next to it is for scale and no I didn't paint him.

Beholder WIP by Nerdy-Viking
Beholder WIP
So yeah I decided I wanted to try making my own beholder since I have no luck with getting a premade mini. This was made using Crayola Model Magic, tooth picks, and a random cat's eye doll eye. Now unfortunately this little guy will never become a beholder. What happened was the tentacles for the other eyes didn't hold shape and cracked or flattened on their armatures, leaving me to scrap them. Still, what came next makes up for it.

Nameless Horror thing by Nerdy-Viking
Nameless Horror thing
This is the painted version of the model magic thing I made. I have to say I'm beyond impressed with this piece. The flocking looks great and the colors, thought not quite what I had envisioned, but it still looks great.

It has been some time since I last submitted anything on the internet, let alone here on DA. However over the last several months (Since October of 2014) I've been working on various craft projects, including making a full costume, a steampunk hat, lightsaber, 2.5D dungeon tiles for D&D/Pathfinder, playing Call of Cthulhu table top roleplaying game, constructing my own models, and now getting into miniature painting. So expect for the next couple days somewhat shoddy camera phone pictures of my works. With any luck I'll have plenty to share with more to come.
