What dragon would you choose?

Recommended Posts

So I plan on making an order soon and besides the cool duck warrior that just came out, I was thinking of getting a dragon. What bones dragon (under 30 bucks) would you choose as a first BIG dragon?

my two favorites:

77279: Narthrax ($29.99) -dynamic vicious, everything you want in a dragon. 

77565: Kyphrixis, The Copper Dragon ($19.99)  more reserved. doesn't have to be good, but may talk before attacking.

Narthrax is still my favorite dragon of all favorite dragons. Julie Guthrie really set the bar on that one.

77542: Marthrangul, Great Dragon ($29.99) I love his sneaking up pose and he's really big

77323: Blightfang ($29.99) got cool kinda leafy scales

77177: Wyrmgear, Clockwork Dragon ($25.99) l'm working on this guy right now and having a lot of fun 

77625: Invisible Kyphrixis ($19.99) invisible can do all kinds of cool effects or just paint it regular 

 

77545: Diabolus the Devil Dragon ($29.99)

I also have a soft spot for this guy he's been sitting on the shelf waving at me dry fit since he came in the last Kickstarter. I really need to paint him up.

While I do like love Wyrmgear and Ebonwrath...  I keep wanting to steal hubby's Narthrax the most, so.... Narthrax.

Good suggestions! what are everyone's feelings on 77555: Viridius, Great Dragon ($29.99)?

 

That's an awesome Dragon!

Have you seen @Metalchaoshis metal version?

He made different horns and antlers!

Viridius is also a big guy with a lot of personality, he's got a bit different scale style than most of the others.

Cygnwulf's WIP has a lot of nice close ups of the unpainted bones version of the sculpt to check out.

I definitely want to get Narthrax , Kyphrixis(both regular and invisible), and Blightfang when all this craziness around me settles down and things start moving but for now I went with Viridius. Cannot wait to get it going and throw on a nice airbrush paint job on it.

Good choice!

The Bones Dragons are reasonably priced, you will get the others one day.

I have to say Narthrax is a great first dragon (and not because he was my first :D ), but if you're like the rest of us, you will quickly end up with ALLTHEDRAGONS!!!!

My ears are tingling... I really should finish that dragon.....  

 

You and me both.  I still only have colours blocked in more or less on my Ebonwrath...

Narthrax definitely is a nice looking dragon, that's for sure!

    • By Painting Miniatures
      whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
       
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!

      What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame?  This is Ollie.  Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams.  Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy.  I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon.  The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off.  Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box!  So without further ado:

      yet another dragon.  this one is an old piece i had most of and decided to go with what i had rather than trying to find the basket.  A fun little piece that I tried to do up as a sky dragon.  My first attempt at a starscape on the back of the wings to give them some interest.  Hope everyone enjoys!
