Buckle in folks, I've got a lot for you today. Over the past year or so I've slowly collected and painted a set of the five Chromatic Dragons. When I first started collecting minis I'd picked up a couple of Dragons from Safari Ltd which were easy to find at craft stores. Rather than buy a bunch of new models from Reaper or elsewhere, I decided to see if I could make a unique set of Dragons using mostly Safari Ltd models. I flipped through my Monster Manual and browsed online catalogs and slowly picked out models that I wanted to use to represent each of them. I eventually ran out of models that I liked and I supplemented a McFarlane Toys dragon for the Red. I finally completed them early this past summer: The White Dragon Read on for More: The Black Dragon Moving up the Chromatic Hierarchy, we have the Black Dragon, represented here by the Safari Ltd. Cave Dragon. This is actually the model that inspired me to paint up the dragons, as it looked so much like the 5E Black Dragon artwork. Read on for More: The Green Dragon Next up, we have the Green Dragon represented by the Safari Ltd. Twilight Dragon. Funnily enough, that sculpt is also available in a green variant as the "Forest Dragon," but i already had the black copy on hand. It was all getting painted over anyways. Read on for More: The Blue Dragon The last of the Safari Ltd. Dragons, this is the Fog Dragon, which got a tiny bit of green stuff to look the part of a Blue Dragon. Read on for More: The Red Dragon I used up the biggest Safari Ltd Dragon with the blue, and I wasn't seeing anything I liked from any of their direct competitors, so I chose something a little different for the Red. I ended up with the Komodo Clan dragon from McFarlane Toys Dragons Series 2. And though this guy showed up in shades of red, I wanted to paint it myself, so it got primed and re-painted. Read on for More: It was a lot of fun painting up these guys, and I like having a unique collection. I'm also glad they're all done. Though I do still have a Shadow Dragon and a Dracolich primed and waiting for paint... and then all the dragons that are still boxed... and then that big five-headed guy I keep meaning to get around to... and then all those new dragons coming with Bones 5... Which dragon do you like best?
OH CURSE YOU GOBLIN! A friend gave me this for Christmas 10+ years ago, and I have always been afraid to paint it, as I had the 'I'm not good enough now' syndrome.... Then seeing Siri's Tia-not, and then Buglips' thread on this beastie, (I mean her Dark Majesty) the 5 little voices have been saying do it, paint it, Ma'al Drakkar will be here in a year... (I need to look Good, in an evil sort of way, for that big guy!) And since my air compressor died tonight, I thought maybe I could kill my Dremel tool to! Going to do prep work tonight, so won't be anything exciting, but I snapped a few pics to show the components. I don't have Sir Forscale, so I brought in his bard, Astrid the Chronicler, to show you all their sheer size... (What is this wench doing strolling around my parts!!) (Ma'al is gonna be scary!) Pics: The Vrock I am working on to show the wing span: This also to motivate me to work on it, so that I can have it ready for the end of the year.... DDS 2 is in the mail to.... Think I might be biting off more than I can get in my mouth, never mind chew... Wish me luck! Gonna need it! (If you don't get back to work, you'll need more than LUCK!) 8) George (Are you finished nattering yet slave? I need to be cleaned!) (coming your Darkness!) Now Buglips has ME doing it!

Hey all! I returned to my parents' home for Thanksgiving this week, and I realized I had a TON of junk in my old bedroom. I threw out 3 large bags of trash, and I even threw out a little pink-and-purple snowglobe with two lovey-dovey teddy bears inside. Yuck, girls! What was this doing in my room?! ..But when I looked back into the garbage bag, I didn't see a girly snowglobe. I saw a delicious piece of dungeon dressing. I reached into the garbage and took out Happy Bear's Chromatic Globe. Check it out: Woah, what's that? It fits exactly on a 2" base?! Here's the "Happy Bear" part: Yeah, I could have milliputtied it out, but it's so much more badass this way. Plus, IT GLOWS!!! A cutout in the styrene base allows access to the switch and the batteries. imgur link. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like it! -mg
