Which Dragon's are the largest?

9 posts in this topic

I just got a pathfinder red dragon, and while it is really cool, I need to get something bigger. How large is the " Dragon's don't share" dragon in comparison? I like the clockwork, skeletal, and multi-headed (which is clearly the largest) but I would like to start with a more standard dragon. So which of the regular dragons will cast the largest shadow at my game table?

The one in DDS is a couple inches bigger. The pathfinder red is pretty small in comparison. Narthrax is also pretty big, he's got a huge wingspan and is one of my favs. Ebonwrath may be a tad bit larger than the PF red too.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.

I know I have them painted somewhere...

 

back row - Pathfider red, DDS 2, blightfang 

front row -  young fire dragon, silver dragon, fire dragon, sir forescale

narthhax is very similar to blightfang in size.  

the DDS dragon is slightly further pushed back and still on the base he came with. 

here is a size comparison to Mal'  the many headed.

I was going to mention Kaladrax, he may be undead but he's freaking huge but then I remembered Mal'.  I don't have him, but I get the impression he's much bigger.  You asked about the clockwork dragon Gary.  He is quite cool but also much smaller than DDS 2.

Bones 3 T'Rauk is also pretty massive, and rivals Ma'al in wingspan alone.

 

I'll be curious about Argent from Bones 4. Because of the stance, he doesn't *feel* as tall as Ma'al, but the overall size might be something else.

From OneBoot's estimates (~12 inches)

Argent will be a big boy!

Here is a set of pics with many of the dragons set out for comparison. These pics are from before Bones 3 fulfillment.

I really need to pull them all out again, along with the others from Bones 3, and shoot some new references.

Super helpful thanks.
Think I am getting DDS 1st, 2nd MAl' as well as pledging for Argent eventually. I may go broke but at least I will have many tiny plastic men to keep me company while living in the gutter.

I think it could be really fun to put the Pathfinder on the table, then pull it off and tell my PCs that they have angered the mother and throw out DDS; then do the same thing with Mal' as a 3rd step in a later encounter. The hard part is not letting see the minis I am so excited about before hand.

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.


      The group:


       
       
      The Oni:


       
       


       
       
      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


       

       
       
      Just some Human Monks:


       



      The Kenku/Tengu:


       

       
      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:


       
      Flock!

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share pix of creations from the Conversion Classes in this thread. 
       
      I will **start:
       

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result. 
       
      **Be warned I have moar pix...

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.


       
      Vegepygmies:


       

       
       
       
      Plant Dragon:


       

      Death Lilies or something like that!

      I'm just really proud of this, my first work with an airbrush ever. Maybe it's not the best skill & craft work out there for finishing a figure, but I think I win some points for originality.
       
      What I learned...
      Sometimes, inspiration comes when you think your finished (my son said "I thought you were going for a nebula") Sometimes, your wife says "It needs something iridescent" when you think you're done and she's right. Sparkling Amethyst on the spines Airbrushing means mixing and getting your consistency exactly right - I got lucky on my first try Airbrushing base colors is insanely fast, uses almost no paint and produces something much more even than I could dry-brushing Dry brushing is great for aging/leathering a piece - airbrushing is all about consistency of coverage. Trying to add red-shifted & blue-shifted stars to the star field looked like birthday cake sprinkles. Nature always has better color schemes than I can come up with on my own. I still need to figure out how to layer/thin/build up my colors.  
       
      After initial airbrushing with Violet Shadow and Clear Magenta and maybe a mix with aged bonne for the belly.

       
       
      First pass at layering for the spikes. I've got some learning to do.

       
      Another angle at the "ready for detailing" stage.

       
      My son said "nebula" and I broke out the clear blue and thinned it, but probably not enough.

       
      Here's the "finished" product. I detailed so many stars in the blue areas. Then my wife said "iridescent" and I added Sparkling Amethyst to the spines. It's a great touch and highlights the raised part of the body instead of leaving it the same as the rest.

       
      For scale against another recent work, my lizardman army.
