It looks rich and splendid. There are depths to both this and the dragonhide that contrast very well.

Contrast! That’s the key word in NMM.

I’m loving that the Carmine dragon is so vertical. It means these effects can all fit in without overriding each other. There’s a different level to view each one on.

They're turning out great! Loving the progress on both dragons and the rider. The Star Lance is turning out nice as well (and who knows, it might make an appearance in our army book if we ever get that...).

As for the burning man, enjoy the process :) It's not every day you get to set someone on fire without any consequences ;)

Haha in Caledor it’s more common than you think.

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Punched some more color into Menëlathnirs hide with an airbrush glaze.

The Gold is starting to take shape. NMM is such a downhill technique. You start with the hardest blends over large surface area, and as you work your way up and down the colours, it requires less and less work but looks better and better.

Gold is mostly done, but you’ll notice the huge difference in contrast between Valaryon and the Menëlathnirs Armour right now.

Once I do the Silver, I will seal the model and panel line. That will give me my blacks. Then I’ll add the pure white highlights and hot spots to both and you should see it pop.

And there it is. Contrast added with the hotspots and shades. Now just gems and final scale highlight to go

Really excellent painting, thank you for sharing these pictures. Did you add the white linen straps to the dragon's armour in the end? I just noticed them on the last image.

Yah I usually do white last because I have a habit of touching models too much while I’m painting, and I find white gets rubbed off or tainted by any residue that might be on my hands.

Laid down the base colours for the Arch Mage Anduriel.

I decided to go with a purple ink, so if I’m playing him as blood of Caledor it can be dragon Armour, but if not it can look like a uniform.

If I went metal it’s pretty much locked into Armour.

I like that idea :)

Though I generally don't play that the models need to match their equipment exactly. But it's always nice if they do, even if only because it helps me remember what equipment I actually gave them...

Your whites do look stunning. Very clean and crisp. So keep doing whatever you're doing.
