Sandra garrity...Tiamat unreleased sculpt?

Recommended Posts

I read that there was a tiamat style dragon project that was shelved and no box dragons will be released any longer. Is there a possible way to make limited runs of large dragons by way of prepaid preorders and 10% holdback or whatever if enough orders do not come through to justify the process. I myself as a collector would prepay and gamble a precentage to try and secure a special piece. Why not create a niche that focuses on the buyer's stepping up to the plate. What kind of numbers would make this feasible? I am sure there has to be a decent amount of collectors who would pay for such a premium service.

I'm sure an official Reaper peep will step in with more info but the original sculpt was not molded. The green was converted into Diabolus. So there isn't a mold sitting on the rack that can be used to cast what you're asking for.

 

Heck, I was looking forward to that thing as soon as they said it was going to be coming out Soon. It was the only large dragon I would ever paint. But alas, it was not to be.

Is there a possible way...

 

Sorry, this is a dead mini. We went and did the Reptus Hydra instead.

 

I wondered about that when I saw a 5-headed hydra.

 

Any chance of getting a "hydra heads" pack, with the different heads? Or maybe in the boneyard?

A couple years ago I could swear that I read on here that a sculpter (I'm almost certain it was Julie Guthrey) was working on a multi-headed Tiamat-like dragon. Anyone know whatever happened to that? wacko.gif

Arise! Arise, my undead thread! :zombie:

 

Reaper, could you please do the above (the chromatic heads pack thing), could yah, huh? Please, could ya?! I'll pay you...

 

I just checked the online store and most of the heads ARE available separately! All but Deathsleet. So close yet so far...I still vote for a heads pack!

 

Looking more closely at the boneyard pieces, it looks like the heads are all sans lower jaw, which I assume is part of the neck/body... :down:

 

Drats! Foiled again!

Thanks! That is indeed the item I was speaking of, though I don't think that is the original thread that I was thinking of.

 

That is terrible news, btw. Bummer. ik_down.gif

 

Nice avatar, btw, Serenity.

 

In that other thread someone had the idea of a 'chromatic heads' pack. I second the notion. I looked at the boneyard, and all the heads are available separately except Deathsleet, but none of them have the lower jaw (molded with the neck/body, I guess). I beg Reaper to do some in-house mods and make the chromatic heads pack available!

Which was supposed to be a multi-headed dragon, but alas, it didn't release that way.

Diabolus was supposed to be released with all of the same heads and then we were going to do a 4 pack of heads to swap out and make them different heads if you wanted to. Didn't quite make it though.
