Hi everyone, I’ve finished the first monster for my Fyreslayers, the Auric Runefather on Magmadroth! Click to view more photos!
This is a truly beautiful miniature, Games Workshop are releasing lots of amazing miniatures recently it’s making me want to buy everything! When I first saw this I knew I had to buy it, the model is truly stunning and really good in the game too.
I spent some time deciding how to paint this, I decided to go with black scales and a more dark red leathery skin underneath him. I wanted to paint him having flames coming off him and I think it contrasted quite nicely with the dark scales. The fire was blended up through White Scar, Yriel Yellow, Fire Dragon Bright, Troll Slayer Orange, Wild Rider Red and then glazed Bloodletter and Lamenters Yellow. I then sponged the tips with Doombull Brown and Black. I also wanted to paint his throat as if it was glowing from underneath his skin, ready to breathe fire. This was blended from white to yellow, glazed Bloodletter and then Lamenters Yellow over the top.
Overall, I am very happy with how it turned out, and can’t wait to play him in a game now he’s fully painted! I would definitely recommend buying this model if you’re thinking about it, it’s a really fun kit to paint!
Thank you very much Daniel and thank you for the tip that's helpful 🙂
Great work! I'd really like to see this army photographed against a black background, to really make the flame-work stand out.
I agree actually, I'll have to see about getting some black card!
Looks great, but you need to learn how to paint flesh. The orange and skin on all your models looks the same shade. Basically a bit on the blurry side. But other than that that great to see some fantasy models. The whole warhammer aos seems so dead on this site, so great to see.
Thank you for the tip 🙂
It's incredible how fast you're painting these kits. Keep up the great work.

That's a great looking paint job really striking.
For future reference You've got the fire bang on, hottest brightest at the base. whereas on the scales round the throat you've dry-brushed on the yellows over a shaded orange. If it's glowing from an inner heat the colours should be inverted, cracks and crevices should be brightest with a dry-brush of orange and reds.
It's only really noticeable close up, from a distance the effect you have is great.
