What a great retro figure.

You'll do it justice, I know!

Seen this one around before, always thought it was a conversion job, rather than production ^^;

 

Very much looking forward to seeing what you do with him, will be following with interest :)

Nice.  I've always liked the way that the wizard is using the dragon's tail as a chair. This is one of those pieces that really make me wonder about the back story of the two figures.

Nice! One of my dream minis. I've loved it since the moment I saw it...so for like 2 years. :-) This one and bridge of sorrows, love.

I wanted my dragon head to have a biiiit more personality, so I adjusted the jaw when gluing it, making it hang open wider. I also had the horns point directly back rather than straight up like antennae...because that's always bothered me about this mini.

it's shown here propped up on other minis to make sure the green stuff sets properly

      While I have jumped the gun for the official contest, I am jumping into the insanity pool and attempting to paint Ma'al Drakar in 7 days per Buglips' rules.
      I'm adding a level of difficulty by painting it at my FLGS and I'm live streaming while I do it. Because of that time constraint, I'm actually already one day in.... Gotta paint when the store is open. ...
      You can follow along over at https://www.twitch.tv/diceaddiction If you missed the stream or want to watch the past streams, they are under the videos tab. We'll be posting these to Facebook as well.
       
      The schedule should be:
       
      Thursday July 20th 
      1pm - 11pm (maybe midnight)
      Friday July 21st
      1pm - 10pm
      Saturday July 22nd
      1-pm - 6pm
      May stream again from 9pm on...
      Sunday July 23rd
      1pm - 10pm
      Monday July 24rd
      1pm -10 pm
      Tuesday July 25th
      7pm For wrap up only I've got to go back to work so there may be no video at all.
       
      If there are more times or the times change, I'll post here.

      This little guy will be a wedding cake topper at a friend's wedding this week. I wish I had the time, energy, and ability to do a better job, overall; it feels in many ways incomplete. But I really do like how the wing pattern and spine turned out. I really struggled painting his body, and frankly I'm hoping nobody gets around to looking at his legs and feet. He does look like a nice little fire drake from the top, I think.  This was another exercise in not trying to be bigger than my britches.

      Bones 4 is next month, but I'm still working through my backlog from Bones 2, lol. Here's my version of Narthrax, my favorite dragon from that KS. This was a really fun mini to paint. More pics and a detailed WIP over at my blog (link down in my sig).
