Nice, that's my favorite Reaper dragon. Hoping to pick him up some day (or maybe he'll get released in Bones)

:;): Very cool gift. Sounds like your kids know you pretty well. Since this is the WIP section, does that mean you're going to start assembling and painting it soon?

I'm not all that surprised by the old stock some shops keep around, just waiting hopefully for someone to buy it. Reaper switched to plastic pistol cases a few years ago, so that box was not purchased from Reaper recently. And I doubt distributors would keep stock around since 2004, so I'm guessing your FLGS has been doing the dragon-sitting.

Yes, I am beginning work on it already. Was working on removing the mold lines and flash from the body last night.

 

The FLGS they purchased it from (Book Stan in Beaumont, TX) has a lot of old stuff that has been on the shelf for years, and I had been eyeing up this one for a while.

Making progress. Deburring and flash removal done. Three of four claws attached to body. Head and neck attached together. Now waiting for green stuff and super glue to cure for those bits. I placed a man sized figure under body to give a sense of scale in the photo.

V is a bit big to call a mini.

 

It is a very close call as to whether it looks cooler with wings or without. I think my kids will be disappointed if I do not use the wings, so I am leaning toward assembling V with them.

I highly recommend painting him before attaching the wings. You'll have to paint-patch the joins, but you'll save time and hassle while painting the rest.

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running.  Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. 
      I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      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.
