Guardian Dragon - Grenadier

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.

      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.

      Ready to protect the temple! (I don't know which temple, but they're protecting it.)
       
      My three favorites are the archer, the crossbowman, and the guy with the big mace.

      Some old school orcs painted up with the old school inspiration of things like classic AD&D art and The Hobbit cartoon from the '70s. Had a lot of fun with these guys because of their character.
       
      Pic heavy one today as the camera was refusing to focus well on groups for some reason.
       

       

       

       

       
      I like this guy because he looks nervous.

       

       

       

       

       
      This guy is one of my favorites because of his dynamic pose.
