thanks for the advice everyone. I don't need a red I have the pathfinder red dragon, and the dragon from dragon's don't share. I just painted blightfang in the classical green dragon colors. the idea of painting something black and purple has merit, since it will be for my desk at work maybe black and purple. intriguing. I will make some drawings and color them then decide. thanks everyone.

 Given the size of the dragon and the fact that you'll be putting it on your desk at work, unless you're really going for the Maleficent look, consider painting it a dark purple with black accents... If you look at the figure, because of their positions at the top of the figure the wing membranes and the crest on the head/back/tail take up about the same amount of visual space as the body of the dragon, so if you paint them a brighter color than the body they'll draw the eye away from the rest of the dragon, particularly if the body is black. It will also tend to draw your eye to it while you're working, which may be distracting.

Doing the body in purple and the wings in black will even out the visual impact of the dragon a bit, which may or may not be a consideration for you.

      Topplethrax the Mysterious

      With a Ral Partha goblin for scale. Also the grid lines are 1 inch squares.

      Here is a second shot with him leaning on my pet rock. I named him Topplethrax because he topples forward without weight on the tail or something to lean him back just a bit.
      There are markings underneath one foot. Either:

      Definitely one of my favorite inclusions in the Ravenloft board game. Originally, I thought the paint job would be entirely a bone color. After I started prepping him, however, it became clear that there was just as much rotting flesh as there was visible bone. Makes sense, considering the artwork in the monster manual. A quick Google image search shows that people approach this model's paint job in a variety of cool ways. This combines my favorite elements from what I've seen, plus my own spin on the way I like to paint undead/zombie-types.

      Another older piece from me. Not much to say about this one...I had a blast painting him. I wanted to make him a little bit darker than most of the other Ashardalon models I've seen. If you have any thoughts or critiques, I'd love to hear them.

      February was a productive month. Here is the Dragon and Stocking freebie from this past Christmas. #1631.
      Here is another little dragon. The Young Fire Dragon (DHL #3332). It's not easy being green.

      Time for class. How to grow your hoard.

      Here is the Human Wizard, Vodelis. DHL # 4009.

      He and Amari have the same broach. I think they are old friends from Magic school.


      And finally, here is the Bones Kickstarter V hippogriff.
