Dave Paints: Red Dragon [Enigma Miniatures ENM1260; OOP]

Recommended Posts

So, I got this dragon a while back:

 

20150626_081418.jpg

 

The only thing I know about it is that it doesn't exist. Even my considerable Google-Fu couldn't turn it up anywhere. I picked it up on Noble Knight Games under the Enigma Miniatures header, and it was produced in the early 90s. I have recently contacted the current Enigma Miniatures to see if they are the same company that produced this mini.

 

She's packaged as a Red Dragon, but with those ears and that nose horn, she more closely resembles a 1e/2e Blue Dragon; so that's where I'm going with her. I've got a bit more filling to do on her, the liquid greenstuff seems to have shrunk a bit since I did my initial gap filling.

 

That's a 120mm base with a Reaper scenic resin Treasure Hoard vignette base and one of the Treasure Packs attached. Since she's a Blue, the sand (and non-treasure parts of the resin base) will be painted as, well, sand. I'm probably going to work on that part first, since the lgs will need curing time.

Woot! A DRAGON!!!!!  :wub:

You don't get to hit this one with your axe.

 

 

 

I wanted to get some of these bigger, non-Bonesium ones out of the way before I deploy, since I have no way to transport them. But I can put them in storage.

I won't hurt the purty red dragon... this time...

 

Yeah, how long you deploying for?

6 months. I'll be able to take smaller minis and my paints, but nothing this size, unless it's indestructible.

Ugh, I feel for you there, having had to do that before.  Being limited on space sucks.  Looking forward to see your cool dragon come along.

Noble Knight rules, by the way.

 

Many a time I thought the chance of finding some out of production mini lost forever, only to find it in their fathomless, dusty vaults.

That's a great Dragon.

 

Lots of work for you ::P:

Yeah, I know. Especially since I plan on breaking out the Antimatter glaze painting tutorial for her.

Ooooo! The AM glaze tutorial!? I got it too, going to use it on a bit of my Summer Exchange project.

The was another, earlier miniature company by the name of Enigma from back in the 90's.

 

I've got a few things from them and my FLGS has a few packs on the rack still.  IIRC the company was based out of Ontario, Canada.

 

Either way, it's a cool looking dragon and I'm interesting in seeing what you do with it.

That's the one I'm thinking it is, but the product numbers are exactly the same (ENM####) as the current Enigma Miniatures.
