So....

 

Back when I first joined the forums, I found a thread about a certain Goblin painting a limited edition Ral Partha figure that I happened to own, but had been sitting in a box for 15-20 years due to the 'I'm not good enough' syndrome....

 

Well I decided that I Was Good Enough and set to work, as chronicled by this

so as at the time of being a noob arround here, I was very encouraged by the multiple responses that I got....

such as:

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!

 

*tries to be sneaky as he puts his pom poms away*

these were some of the responses and replies....

 

and the thought struck me as funny, if I could do a diorama, of myself painting Takky, with some of the people cheering me on.....

 

So in 2015, I started collecting minis for this....

 

For @ub3r_n3rd

02414, and 02529, not sure which would be better WITH POM POMS instead of weapons...

(02414 leads for me)

 

For @Chaoswolf and @Glitterwolf

01618 and 02747

 

And the @buglips*the*goblin from 02481 3rd guy from the left...

 

For myself, The new Matthias from Hasslefree, to be painted, of course, as a Drow

But I have a few issues....

 

@Pezler the Polychromatic and @vegascat were also very vocal in their support, but picking minis for them is not so clear cut...

 

and the miniature Takky that I will have to make.....

 

Thoughts???

 

Also, what should the setting be????

 

Guess the pom poms that I sculpt should be Green, White and Black, as those are the Dark Heaven colors....

Hope I can get back in the groove again....

Great idea! I agree, 2414 is a perfect @ub3r_n3rd.

Well, he will lose the sword for a pair of pom poms...

 

or maybe a baton?????

 Just how miniature a dragon are you looking for, compared to the guy that's going to be you?

 

There are two main issues when trying to build a five-headed dragon.

 

  First, finding the five heads. Both the little Reaper Dragonlings and the Young Dragons are missing one or more of the necessary dragon types. Your best bet might be to use at least one of the Grenadier or Partha dragons in conjunction with the Reaper dragons. If you're trying to hue particularly close to the actual limited edition figure, going with Partha dragons/hydras would probably give you the closest approximations of the heads...

  Second, finding a body wide enough for the five heads. This is most likely going to involve pasting heads from smaller dragons onto the body of a larger dragon. But not too much larger, or the necks will be too short and the heads too small. The Reaper Dragonlings might fit on the body of a small Partha hydra, and the Young Dragon heads would probably fit on one of the larger Partha dragons.

In any event, I'm foreseeing something that's going to end up some combination of lead, tin and plastic, and a healthy chunk of greenstuff.

The reaper wyrmlings are only missing one type in Bones; I have the white one in metal. It would still be a pain in the whatsit to find a suitable body for them, though ...

 

But! I wanna see this happen! It sounds awesome!

Oh, I can defintely picture that figure with with pom poms which is why I prefer it over the other. It has more of a cheerleader pose than the other.

 

Or replace the sword with a foam finger with “Go Knarthex” on it.

Pezler could be depicted by an ooze or slime painted in various vibrant colours maybe.

 

Vegascat..the sabretooth tiger man maybe?

Or maybe this guy

It may still be too big, but Magister Militum has a few 10mm dragons as well as a five headed hydra that may be a good base for you work from. Check the fantasy section.

Kallistra LTD has 3 flying dragons in 12mm scale.

Pendraken has 2 10mm flying dragons that you get heads and wings from.

Warrior Miniatures also has 2 10mm flying dragons.

 

I hope something there is helpful.

 SparrowMarie just posted a thread about starting a similar project, copying something OneBoot did awhile back, using a Bones hydra as a base and adding wings to it.

      I have had some requests about Brutus pics.
       
      So I figured I would put some here.
       
       
       
















      Feel free to show pics of you pets!

      I have painted these guys to include them in a diorama/terrain piece for the Lost World and thought they deserved a show off of their own before they dissapear into the vast jungle.
       
      Enjoy.

      This is a little sideproject from my Lost World Project
      WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&
       
      I think it deserves it's own WIP.
      It will be covered in the Lost World as well, but there it will be interrupted by the other things I paint and build there.
       
      With courtesy to @malefactus , @Peithetairosand @Chris Palmer for inspiring me with their awesome terrainbuilding.
       
      It all started when I noticed my spare base from Kaladrax.
      Kaladrax was put on a crypt as can be seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77556-kaladrax-on-her-mausoleum-by-glitterwolf/
       
      At first it was just an idea, putting some jungle stuff on that.
      But then things kinda got out of hand a bit.
       
       
       







      And some fericious foam cutting

      Another Clan Wars mini I got from @Jasper_the_2nd for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon project.
       
      This time an ONI OGRE.
       
      WIP HERE:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/
       
      When asked for their allegiance the Oni joined forces with the murdered Toda Clan and the last survivors.
      Due to the family ties they swore to annihilate the Kenmu Clan for their foul deeds.
      In battle these Oni terrified the enemy, larger than men and wielding huge weapons they cut their way through the Kenmu ranks.

      Here are three more Samurai Zombies from Clan Wars, I got them from @Jasper_the_2nd
      They are very nice sculpts and I had a lot of fun with these.
       
      WIP is here:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/
       
      The Undead Samurai slowly advanced, nothing could stop them, arrows just got stuck in their flesh or armor and they kept going.
      Another volley, nothing stopped them!
      The now undead Toda Clan sought revenge to those who had wronged them.
      They kept coming, determined to slaughter their enemies.
