Feathered wings for a fire dragon? Size comparison pictures?

Recommended Posts

Hello! Bit of an odd question, but does anyone know of any feathered wings that would be of the correct scale for this fire dragon here? Or reference photos if you have any of these other minis? I'm looking at this giant eagle, this gryphon or this one, the peryton, the pegasus, or this avatar, and have no earthly idea how big any of them are compared to the dragon, but I'm betting they're too small. If those Reaper minis don't work, any idea of minis outside of Reaper ones that are the right size? Thanks much!

03662: Griffon is gonna work very well for you for either of Reaper's Fire Dragons (the one you posted or the Pathfinder Red).

 

ETA: And they're the only ones I'd really recommend; most of Reaper's other wings are either too small (Deva) or are built long and narrow compared to what a dragon'd need. These are nice and broad.


I'd be prepared to do a fair bit of sculpting to get it to fit right; they don't flush up evenly at all.

And, since I was taking pictures and had it handy, I'll include this for future threadgoers:

The 1st gryphon's wings should work with the dragon. Even cheaper is that particular mini is in Bones as well.

Posting comparison for the wings @haldir is talking about below:

And the PF Red:

They're a very simular size length-wise, but I'd say they're a lot too narrow. They don't look like they'd support the dragon, IMO.

Thank you so much! That'll work perfectly :D
