I'm new to painting (this is my 3rd completed game) and I do best when I have good pictures to reference off of, so for this game I felt like I wasn't exactly sure what to do so I just kind of decided to do something quick and dirty and I'm happy with the results.



One of my raptors is missing its tail so I just decided to paint it as if it was damaged.

Nice. I bet those vipers were a pain with the white and red.

Yeah, they were the toughest. I just primed them and then painted them off-white. Then I did a brown ink wash. Then I free-handed the red paint, especially on the back (and bottom) because there were no lines to follow. At least the front had a line around the area I filled in...

That's funny; one of my Raptors' tails is all messed up, and I didn't notice it until I went to paint them.

Maybe a bad mold?

Perhaps. This is the only image I have of it, and it's not easy to see exactly what the messed up tail looks like. It's the second Raptor from the left.

That looks completely different, like the mold didn't get filled all the way. Mine looks like it was just broken off...
