This was my very first dragon'esque model ever painted.
The wings provide a very large surface area for blending or freehand or whatever suits your fancy. This was my first attempt at wet blending, and also first attempt at adding spot patterns to anything.
The material is Reaper Bones resin.
The figure comes attached to base.

Assembly:

Very little. A few large pieces and they all fit together nicely.
Mould lines were easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted with acrylics, Reaper Miniatures Master Paint series.
This was my first attempt at wet-blending with acrylics, so there was a definitely learning curve there. I remember this taking 4-5 hours one night as I kept going over the wings again and again, trying different shades. Washed with Nuln Oil and Biel-tan Green to help the definition.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custon with cork, PVA glue, flocking with sand and rock bits, leaving pools for the swamp bits.
A very small amount of Vallejo Water Effects were used in the swamp pools, which did take a couple applications because that stuff shinks a lot when it dries. Honestly, rather annoying. If I could do it over again, I would use the UV resin from Green Stuff World
