Zombie dragon #1

After heavy battle another model just got crossed off the everlasting list of shame. Half-crossed off, because at this moment there's only unridden beast and I'm still looking for the proper rider. Painting this one took me much more then I expected especially given the fact it's the second version of this sculpt I've been working on. The previous piece was painted 10 years ago ( 😳😳😳 ) as contest model, but this time I wanted a center piece for Undead Army project - which I might even bring to an end yet during this lifetime.

There were some ideas about color scheme. At first I was thinking about "classic" green dead flesh but then I decided to use pale tone. Such color should contrast nicely againg base and hopefully - dark rider. Working on this one kinda drained me out so the rider has to wait and in the meantime I can finally start working on Hetzer from Propylene Foliescu.

So here it is: half-finished zombie dragon from golden age of Warhammer. Some more pics and some more babbling when it's done... 


  1. We love the diorama from ten years ago and the new dragon you're working on: the colour you chose is really creepy and that bloody mug is perfect. Did you splash the blood with a brush?
    Don't worry about the long times: in case you don't finish your project in this lifetime, you can join your army of the undead to have extra time! 😂

  2. With a toothbrush - it's perfect combo with Tamiya Clear Red 🧛‍♂️

    As for the second part I must talk to local necromancer about my chances to come back as undead-painter instead of just mindless when Rapture comes 😋

  3. Oh, wow, the skin is splendid, what a jaw dropping work! I can't wait to see it finished, this is epic!

  4. It's such a nice model when you don't paint it like a big cabbage; your pale green is much more flattering!

    Mine is probably my favourite figure that I've ever done.

  5. @Suber: oh, you flatterer! 😊
    Glad you like it but at least half of the job was made bu the sculpt - some models always look cool painted!

    @Von: cheers mate! I had a plan to paint it grassy green but as you said - flying undead cabbage ain't something my necromancer would like to ride on! 😋

  6. @Warburton: thank you, sir! 😊

    @Pepe: jeździec się składa - będzie niestandardowy bo oryginalny wight został zagospodarowany gdzie indziej: 😉

  7. Great job. A real centrepiece to the army.

  8. Moja ulubiona figurka 5ed. Postrach mojej armii Undead.
