Horses for the Dragon Princes

Well, I have managed to get some painting done. It’s not as much as I had hoped for, but there has been a lot of sickness at my house, so that can be my excuse for now. I have been working towards trying to complete my unit of Dragon Princes that I painted the test model for last year. So far, I have completed 4 more of the horses. I still need to paint 5 more horses and 9 more riders to complete the unit…

Hmm, after reviewing the pictures for the post, it looks like I have a little more touch up work to do:)

One thing that I am going to run into is that my other 5 horses aren’t primed yet. I usually spray them outside, but the winter isn’t really the best time for that. How do you guys prime your models with unfavorable weather conditions?

  1. Hey, those are looking very good! I’m really glad to see you getting some painting done! I think a little ink was on the whole model would help bring out some depth. I use Nuln Oil and Ogryn Flesh. As far as spraying, I never let the weather get me down. i step out onto the front or back porch and spray. Just make sure to shake the can well. Also, I know some people use their garages when it’s really cold outside.

    • Thanks. It has been nice that I have been enjoying painting more this time around. Let’s hope that it sticks! As far as the inks… maybe I don’t know how to use the properly. I tried them (Blue Ink & Black Ink) once on something and wasn’t impressed with the result. I know that other people use them to great effect, so I blame my skills for that.
      So, for the spraying, everything cures properly, even when it is cold? I had heard people say that you need to do it at certain temperatures and even humidity levels or else it might not cure properly. Thanks for the help!

    • Thanks. It is definitely getting easier the more that I paint with it. By the time that I am done, I should have plenty of experience… Of course, I’ll probably have to switch to the new paints part way through, so that might take a little adjusting.
