I'm tempted to by a 6mm miniature army to scatter around this dragon's base and give it a truly ludicrous sense of scale. What do you guys think? Awesome, or just plain overkill?

i think it sounds fun! if i knew where to get some, i'd be tempted to as well!

Get some old Warmaster minis. :devil: Stupendous Reaper dragon about to stomp on some OOP GeeDub minis...

They have not given any hint of s retail price have they? I was guessing $99 but could be off $20-30.

I'd look at DDS2 retail price for a comparison really.

 

 

Thought of that but then saw how much larger it looked compared to that entire set and the detail of it too.  Just felt like a $100 value easily.

Oh yeah I could see $125-$135 easy.

Well, Satan just came to me a few minutes ago and convinced me to get a third Tiamat and a few more hobgoblin sets added to my order.  I'll argue that I'm saving money in the long run . . .

It's hard to argue with logic like that!

We have not announced an official MSRP although we tend to agree with estimates close to $100. We do not habitually give out the MSRP prior to release on such things.

 

Worth it.

The Warmaster minis could cost you more than the dragon! ::D:

From Kickstarter Update #71

SO PRETTY!!!!!! :wub:  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

I have to say, I LOVE how Proctor extended the red of the body onto each of the necks/heads, and also used the head colors on places all over the rest of the mini. It makes for a beautifully cohesive mini, which is something that's always bothered me just a wee bit about most 5-headed dragon depictions. It does make him downright colorful, though, but since Proctor used a slightly muted palette, I think that helps to mitigate that some.

 

Definitely food for thought for when I tackle my own! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Ahhh!!! Amazing!!! I was going to go for a slightly muted color scheme but I wasn't sure how I was going to pull it off! His will be great for reference. And I LOVE the blended head colors! :wub:

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.

      Hello, all!

      I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat.
       
      She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon.
       
      I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure.
       
      My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do.
       
      I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon.
       
      Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc?
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!

      This is my Reaper bones Viridius dragon that I call Magnus. This is the largest miniature I have painted and the one with the most complicated paint scheme I have ever attempted. It is by no means perfect but it was a blast to paint! 

      The troll finds out that he is Not the biggest thing on the battlefield.

       
      Comments, critiques, are welcome. 
      Thankyou for looking!
