Here are finished photos of the two Reaper Pathfinder Red Dragons I painted this month.
As you can see, both dragons are basically alike. Dragon 1 was painted for my FLGS Atomic Empire, and Dragon 2 is for sale for $65.
Well I finished the last 8 horses for the 24 Empire Knights:
I think the white horses are my favorite. And just in case you ever wondered what a horde of cavalry looks like:
I should have the 24 riders done sometime in the next few days as well as a pair of Pathfinder Red Dragons, one of which will be for sale!
Well my airbrush compressor completely burned out, so I’ve been trying to get a replacement quickly. Hopefully the replacement will get here in the next day or two, and hopefully it’ll be as nice as I think it is!
In the mean time, here’s a quick shot of the first group of archers for the 3000 points of Empire I’m painting.

So I haven’t been able to post as much lately as I’d like, and I thought I should share the reason. I’m a sponsor for this year’s Brawler Bash VII Warhammer Fantasy Grand Tournament in Durham, NC, and I will also be preset at both the GT and the Doubles tournament the preceding Friday. To that end, I’ve been painting models to display (and sell) at the tournament, as well as acquiring the items I will need for my setup at the tournament.
I am providing gift certificates for commission painting that will be used for prizes at the tournament. Also, I will be purchasing used armies for cash!
I will have a 3000 point Empire Army for sale at the tournament as well as its accompanying display board and various other models.
I hope to see you there!
Here’s how I did the Reaper Hydra with a marsh base!
1. Clean mould lines, boil, dry fit while cooling to reduce gaps.
2. Prime black
3. Paint the scales on his back VGC Jade Green, highlight with mix of Jade Green and RMS Linen White.
4. Wash back scales with Army Painter Blue Tone ink. In this picture the left has not been washed yet.
5. Paint the rest of the hydra VGC Falcon Turquoise.
6. Wash with GW Nightshade.
7. Next it was time for the faces – which there are a ton of!
8. Build the bases.
9. Paint the bases when they are dry.
10. Add stumps to bases.
11. Finish the faces and assemble the Hydras!
12. Paint stumps.
13. Add grass.
14. Add water effects mixed with Flames of War Camo Dark Green paint, also mix in GF9 Marsh blend flock to “gunk” it up.
15. Pin back feet, attach to base.
