Which huge dragon should I get?


Recommended Posts

I'm just looking for suggestions as to which huge or colossal sized dragon miniature I should get for my Pathfinder game. I'm a little picky about sculpts and how things are posed; I like some of the Bones kickstarter dragons, but the ones in particular that I want haven't been released in the reaper store yet, or if they have I can't find them.

T'Raukzul is you best option by far but hes not release yet.  I would say the next best option is the Dragon from Dragons don't share.  Before you ask No you cannot get the dragon by itself. 

Otherwise...Cinder is not a bad option.  Hes probably the biggest that's available right now.  (unless you want undead dragons)

T'Raukzul was actually one of the ones I specifically wanted from the kickstarter, but I'm poor and can't afford to fund them unfortunately. 

Its a shame I can't get the Dragons Don't Share dragon by itself, because I have no idea what I would do with those terrain pieces.

Make a deal with someone who want them for wargaming terrain but doesn't want another dragon?  Not here of course because of the no commerce rule, but you might be able to find someone.  Or maybe someone is unloading one on EBay.

I know a few people who play Warhammer 40k and other such games. Maybe I could pawn the pieces off on them. I should say I'm open to suggestions of non-reaper, but preferably unpainted dragon miniatures as well, my main concern is that they must be big and look cool. :B):

Most of the other "big and cool" dragons (non-Bones that is) tend to be really expensive.

 

One I have and like are the Darksword Elmore Red and the Heresy Dragon (OOP unfortunately; or fortunately for Andy's sanity)

I just looked up the Heresy dragon, that thing is beautiful ::o: I'll most likely go with a bones miniature just because reaper's prices can't really be beat for the value. I'm thinking I may go with Ebonwrath, Cinder, or Blightfang.

There are people on this very forum that have been kicking themselves for not getting just the terrain pieces when they were available separately during the Kickstarter. - just ask around - I am pretty sure you will be able to find it a good home. ::):

 

The Auld Grump - right now, I am running a game at Old Neighborhood Buffet, which makes me a happy Grump... but also makes for a slower game. ::P:  (I has soup!)

 

*EDIT* And a more definitive answer - Narthrax -

Narthrax is my favorite because of his pose.  I've got him painted up in black right now, but another one is on the wishlist because he's so darn cool looking (imo)

I think I'll be going for blightfang for my first dragon. While I like Narthrax' pose, I'm not that in love with his face. Plus blightfang is very well suited for my favorite dragon color, green.

 

I see a lot of bones 3 dragons moving in with me in the future, though::D:

The only thing that really bothers me about Narthrax is the size of his teeth, they're a little disproportionate to his head size and as a result he kind of reminds me of a beaver or rat a little bit. I suppose a little bit of filing could fix that pretty easily though..

      I painted up the Annoyed Rocky as Spyro the Dragon because when I got it that is what it screamed at me to do. I even took some time to do a little basing.

      I am not good at telling stories on paper.  my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself.  this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s.  The piece is high lead content.  so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told). 
       
      The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving.  The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
       
      I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box.  I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring.  The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
       
      anyway the WIP is here if your interested:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
       
      and here are the images of the final project.  Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this.  Feel free to comment and question away as always.  The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
       



      One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....



      And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....
