3.5ish, yeah.  Mind you I haven't gotten out a measuring tape or anything but I do have the Gargantuan Black Dragon and tend to use that as my reference.  To be fair (since I did go as far as to reference size classes) I can do ref pics next to the Black Dragon (Vinny) if you'd prefer.

You read my mind.  I have been searching google for such an image.  Can you compare black dragon to Narthra, Nathavarr, and khajira?  Thanks so much.

 

Which one is Narthra?

Girot, thanks so much.  So i can see that Nathavarr is just about equal to the black dragon.  He is a hair smaller though but still can be used as gargantuan (Nathavarr).  But the black dragon could easily be considered colossal coming up just shy of the world breaker.  As can be seen, though the black dragons pose is less dynamic than bones dragons, it squeezes in a lot of dragon in a small base relative to size.  Nathavarr, even if i shave his base a bit will only fit on a 5x5.  He will never fit a 4x4 like the black dragon.

I feel it is hard to have a solid idea on measuring body size for basing.  I just was taking a look at some gargantuan size pathfinder minis and they are smaller than D&D standard.  The pathfinder standard for gargantuan fits more in line with the bones line.  Though bones have larger huge size dragons than both others.  Hmm.  Its fun discussing minis.

I am putting together Cinder now.  He is a pretty decent size.  His stance is more humanoid but he makes it work well with such a size.  This makes him seem more intelligent when standing this way.  Normally i am not a fan of this stance but he looks nice.  One more dragon to go for me, Nathavarr.  I only have 5 dragons.

I love that bones material is so easy to trim.  I was able to cut the base of Nathavarr to fit 120mm base with a simple knife with no heating or anything.  Only trimmed the non-elevated portion.  He is my largest dragon, at gargantuan size.  D&D5e dictates he is still gargantuan with a 5x5 base because 4x4 and up is all one size.   ::D:

So i just completed putting together my Nathavarr.  His ruins base is fitting perfect inside the 5x5 circle base, his tail hangs out a bit from his body and base but it is ok.  He is simple amazing and so massive.  He looks like he has just landed from flight and either roaring as he spins his body and head side to side, or if he is spitting fire from side to side wiping out a large area.  Awesomeness!

 

 Does anybody know where i can find 150mm/ 6x6 or larger round or square bases?

I'm not sure if Flit is a legit name or just a forum nickname but that's one of the adolescent sized dragons.  It's exactly breed tends to shift pretty wildly though.

Flit is an internally referenced name, like how Garrick the Bold, on internal packaging, is listed as Thomas, good Fighter, and on the Kickstarter, he is referred to as Sir Forscale. When we placed our initial orders for Bones, lo those many years ago, we added proper names to models which did not have them, to make identification easier (kind of why we name our other models, when some companies only say "elven knight" or some such). When the first release occurred, in fact, many of these names made it onto the original release, including everyone's favorite, Torg the Unicorn.  This was because our data entry had not understood that these names were not the release names. In time, this was reversed, and we reverted to the names we currently use not he blister packs, although internal parcels still use this internal name.  

 

Flit is marketed as Young Fire Dragon, a more descriptive, but less personal (and less silly) name.

Based on The Adventures of Sir Forscale, I'd say he's a great fighter.

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.
