Black Dragon of Fire and Darkness (Brown Desert Dragon)


Recommended Posts

Here's another diorama from my archives painted long ago. This one is Ral Partha's Black Dragon of Fire and Darkness painted as a brown desert Dragon. Three Citadel Snotlings are chasing a snake at the back. The base is made of wood covered with carved expanded foam and natural sand.

Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate.


@Metalchaos. I have to ask. How many of these did you do? All the ones you've posted recently have been well done. Do you still create dioramas?

I did four diorama with dragons. In fact, I did five but the last one doesn't count because I removed the dragon from the base as I didn't like it much. I still need to build a new base for this Ral Partha dragon. I've also build a big Tristram Cathedral based on the original Diablo video game, this one was achieved in 2006.

I have several uncompleted dragons, Niddhogg the Wyrm, T-char Dragon of Flame and Fury, Riding the cold wind to Valhalla, Clutch of fear all from Ral Partha. I also have a small Grenadier black dragon II but most of all Reaper's kaladrax and Cinder.

Yes, I have many diorama project tickling my mind. This week, I started working on Cinder. I probably share my progress in a WIP Forum.


Yeah, these have been great! You're making me want to create dioramas, and that's no mean feat. Nor even a median one.

If you feel like doing a diorama, do it! It's a lot of fun. Forget about the result for now. If you need advice I will gladly share my humble experience.

Everyone as a diffrent style and with practice you will find yours and improve it. You'll be amaze of what you can do if you take the time to focus on your idea. I hope you'll do it!

Is that aquarium furniture? I love the wings! Great composition!


No , this is not aquarium furniture. For the base, I've built a wood frame and then I covered it with Everbuild fix & fill expanding foam. This polyurethane expanding foam is usually used to fill the gaps around windows. After the foam as harden it can be cut, sawn and paited. I carved it using a craft knife and painted it with acrylics. The trees are pewter trees and the foliage is dyed lichen.
