Guardian Dragon - Grenadier

Recommended Posts

That's a unique choice of colours for a dragon. Nicely done!

 

And best of luck with your New Years Resolution.

It's not one I could ever hold to.

It’s odd to think of “naturalistic” as a description of dragon coloration.  This is quite effective. Well done!

 

(Also props for some Old School Grenadier love.)

I've owned that model ever since it came out and it's still one of my favourite dragons. Very nice job on it. I did the no buying new minis thing for a few years. My painting slowed to almost nothing. It seems that buying stuff is a large part of what gives me inspiration to paint. Now I'm just trying to buy less than I paint because I have a huge backlog. I've done ok with that if you don't count all the Bones KS but even so I think I'm gaining slowly.

It's been in my possession too since the 80s.  I started collecting minis as a young teenager who somehow stumbled into a hobby store with her father (who really had no interest himself), thought minis just looked cool, and convinced him to buy them for me. But aside from 1 or 2, I only finally started painting them seriously this past year.  I'm amazed that all the majority of what I've collected has survived the multiple moves I've done since junior high.

 

I have some very specific ones I'd really like to get going on.  So I'm hoping having that list of favorites will help.  The hard part will be not window shopping minis and feeling that urge to splurge.  Yesterday I had to resist buying some old Rackham minis I pine for.

      One i don't believe has been posted here before, sculpted by John Dennett.  From the giants club series, which comes as a set with Obelisk, other assorted supporting pieces,  + a map in a small box approx. the side of a paper-back book. If you collected all the various giants and follow the map, + send in 10 proof of purchase codes to Grenadier (remember those days?), you would get a free "Giant King's throne"  sent to you in the mail. I've never seen the throne, if you have it please share.
         
            This one is not really a giant, but a Demon named Shaeglmon who serves the Demon Queen of Chaos named Azurg. They were  trapped in a place called the Hellwaste by powerful wizards.  Shaeglmon, also called the Hound of Azurg, is the governor of the Hellwaste and commands all the Demons and Undead trapped there, waiting for the day when their prison walls fail. Occasionally brave adventurers venture to the Hellwaste, the few that return bear horrifying tales, most are never heard from again.
            Not my best work but a cool model and it's different. Most importantly, i managed to find the complete set which is rare as the cowering victim  is tiny, about the size of a modern Halfling, and apparently easily lost as I've never seen another painted one
       
      . Pretty sure this is one of the parties that never comes back :) Last pic includes a modern Dwarf for scale

      Back after a 2 months break, with one of my oldest miniature. I bought this ninja with the katana some 35 years ago... ^_^; 
       
      It was time to paint him and his brothers (Grenadier Models, 1983) :

      Finished this one a couple weeks ago. I think it worked out really well. It's one of my favorite Grenadier dragons I've painted so far. Not just the paint work I did, but the sculpt too. Pretty simple color palette with a B&W underpaint.

      This the bonus figure that came in Grenadier Dragon Lords 9602 Red Dragon II, circa 1989.  See my work on the Dragon here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82205-grenadier-9602-red-dragon-ii/
       
      This guy mimics the dragon’s colors, but not very well. Overall a pretty plain mini. Im terrible with reds. Damned colorblindness...

      This the “Knoll Totem” from Grenadier’s Dragon Lords “Encounter at Blood Valley” boxed set, circa 1987. I was gifted the set by a childhood friend a few years ago. He had painted several pieces of the set.  I figured it was time to complete the rest. 
       
      Interesting that they chose to spell it “Knoll” instead of the usual “Gnoll”. Not sure if it was intentional or some confusion by the publisher.
