Jamie's painting thread

Just started working on my dragonborn last night so figured I would start a thread to share progress. Just base coats and first washes done and this stage but I will update as I go along. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated and if you have any questions just shout.

Mainly been working on the bones dragon today but have got the first flesh highlight down on dragonborn. It’s going to need another wash on the face due to the black wash running off the helmet so I had to touch up quite a bit there. Dragons details are very nice for the price, should highlight up really well.


Looking good!

Cheers Alaiteir.

Finished off the reds today and got another layer of zandri dust down for the beige parts. Going to work the zandri dust up to ushabti bone then pallid Wych flesh. That’s the plan anyway.

I like the highlights on the scales, looking forward to seeing more of your work when the game properly comes out :slight_smile:

Cheers Alaiteir, the highlights are all just drybrushed for the dragon with a bit of edge highlighting on the dragonborn one due to the different style. Can’t wait to get my hands on the game and paint up some storm cloaks!

Got the bases washed and base coated today so should be able to move straight onto details at the weekend.


Got the bases ready for snow and finished the beige on the dragon today. I used stippling for the first time on the wings and my usual thin layer approach for the body working from zandri dust, to ushabti bone and then pallid Wych flesh. I’m pretty happy with it but let me know what you think.

Almost finished now, need to wait for the snow paste to dry then I will add some snow flock. Also need a colour for the dragons tongue if anyone has any suggestions.


Looking forward to seeing it finished!

A purple-y red colour might work for the dragons tongue?

Cheers Alaiteir, hope to get finished pics up next weekend. Purple is a good shout, recommendations so far have been blue/black, purple or orange painted like fire

I like the blue black or purple route. It’s a dragon, it could really be any color you want. But something “different” like those might help it stand out.

If you did go for a more “traditional” color, I like Army Painter’s “Toxic Boils”. It’s a pink/purple color, with the added bonus of shifting to a warm/raw/new skin like tone after a brown wash.

Before and after wash, for example.

Thanks for the input AlxRaven, I think I’m going to go with dark blue/purple along the lines of a gas flame.
Finished the snow tonight so just that tongue and base rims to go.


I think gas flame is a perfect inspiration to work off of.
