Which Dragon's are the largest?

Recommended Posts

I just got a pathfinder red dragon, and while it is really cool, I need to get something bigger. How large is the " Dragon's don't share" dragon in comparison? I like the clockwork, skeletal, and multi-headed (which is clearly the largest) but I would like to start with a more standard dragon. So which of the regular dragons will cast the largest shadow at my game table?

The one in DDS is a couple inches bigger. The pathfinder red is pretty small in comparison. Narthrax is also pretty big, he's got a huge wingspan and is one of my favs. Ebonwrath may be a tad bit larger than the PF red too.

I know I have them painted somewhere...

 

back row - Pathfider red, DDS 2, blightfang 

front row -  young fire dragon, silver dragon, fire dragon, sir forescale

narthhax is very similar to blightfang in size.  

the DDS dragon is slightly further pushed back and still on the base he came with. 

here is a size comparison to Mal'  the many headed.

Bones 3 T'Rauk is also pretty massive, and rivals Ma'al in wingspan alone.

 

I'll be curious about Argent from Bones 4. Because of the stance, he doesn't *feel* as tall as Ma'al, but the overall size might be something else.

From OneBoot's estimates (~12 inches)

Argent will be a big boy!

Here is a set of pics with many of the dragons set out for comparison. These pics are from before Bones 3 fulfillment.

I really need to pull them all out again, along with the others from Bones 3, and shoot some new references.

Super helpful thanks.
Think I am getting DDS 1st, 2nd MAl' as well as pledging for Argent eventually. I may go broke but at least I will have many tiny plastic men to keep me company while living in the gutter.

I think it could be really fun to put the Pathfinder on the table, then pull it off and tell my PCs that they have angered the mother and throw out DDS; then do the same thing with Mal' as a 3rd step in a later encounter. The hard part is not letting see the minis I am so excited about before hand.

The use of possessive in "Which Dragon's Are the Largest" makes me think that the dragons are all going to whip them out to measure.

 

Sorry for the banal sidetrack.

 

The largest of the dragons is definitely Ma'aldrakar- but there are a lot of other big 'uns.  Ma'al would be colossal plus.

 

The Pathfinder dragon is relatively small- quite a lot smaller than Kaladrax, Nethyrmaul, Narthrax or even Cinder.  One thing that will give you a good idea about size is to go onto Reaper's store and have them list by price.  With the exceptions of "Dragons Don't Share" the price of the dragon is directly proportional to its size.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      This is such a beautiful sculpt! I spent a lot of time just looking at it, thinking. I did not really achieve my vision, but done is done. This small dragon is applealing enough I may do another some day when I have more time to devote and hopefully more skill. Trying for a tropical look, stated with parrot colors, but that didn't work - and this was where I landed!

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
