The dragon looks good.  the spines might take a couple layers of wash from point down to give them some more shading, but overall it looks great.  The shading on the head and horns is great.. could carry that into the rest of the body and spines.

 

Sphere is a nice contrasting color to the rest..

 

The flames could use some more definition and contrast..  you might find this helpful:

I think it looks great! The only critique I can come up with would be to make the eyes stands out more by being painted with a different color, like blue.

Looks fantastic!

I also backed for the same reason.  I didn't have any Eastern Fantasy themed minis before.

The game looks cool, but I still haven't played a round of "Blood Rage" yet.

Thanks for the video. I've been using this link when working with fire, especially on this one. I can see where a more intense red might be a good idea.

The dragon is a beautiful sculpt and you painted it so well, especially the face. I like the color you chose for the beard and eyebrows, etc. It looks nice with the gold.

 

My only critique is that the fire looks too "pastel" to me. Maybe just glaze a more vibrant yellow over parts of the lower yellow section and then bright orange and red towards the top.

 

It is really pretty!

Wow, that is great!

only critiq from me is the eyes, i would suggest something more like ‘normal’ dragon/reptile eyes.

 

Your color choices are excellent!

Very nice.  I got a Ten Thunders dragon recently for a Lung Dragon, but this is much more impressive than mine.  Very cool!

      Today's mini is a blast from the past, Reaper's casting of the Heritage Red Dragon.

      Because of his seemingly furry chest/stomach, he is called the hippie dragon.

      He is one of many miniature purchases from the old Lone Star Comics. I raided the store for weird miniatures. The had a lot of bagged Reaper minis for sale.

      I saw this ad in Fantasy Modeling #5 back around '80 or '81 and immediately sent off for the Dragontooth catalog, and promptly bought the dragon. I think it cost something like $20, if you factor in the shipping. I knew when the box containing him arrived, because I think the box must have weighed twenty pounds.
       
      He was about the size of my hand, five and a half inches from tabletop to wing tip, and weighed approximately fifty pounds. Solid lead. Eight parts; Two wings, torso, four legs, and the top of his head and upper jaw. Wings would NOT stay on with crazy glue, epoxy, solder, or Sovereign Glue.
       
      My players must have fought that dragon three or four times in the three years we existed as a gaming group before we all went off to college and scattered to the four winds. One of the boys named him Skippy. As in, "Dragon? Oh, man, Skippy's gonna hit the table!"
       
      There weren't a whole lot of dragons back then. Toy dragons may have existed, but we didn't have any clue where to find one. And metal dragons had begun to exist, but I lived in a little tiny Texas cow town in the middle of nowhere. For us, there was Skippy, and we loved him well.
       
      So naturally, he was among the things my parents tossed out when I left for college. I have never seen another Dragontooth dragon like him. He was seventy pounds of solid lead, and probably illegal to sell, these days, but I'd buy another one in a minute.
       
       This is my newest dragon. Arrived today. He's pretty, and I hear they have him at Wal Mart, now. He and his box of friends cost fifteen bucks.

      And back in 1980, I'd have flapped my arms and flown to the moon by sheer force of personality if I thought it would have got me a dragon like this.

      But then.... today... you can find dragons anywhere. I think Reaper makes one or two different dragons, don't they......?

      Who was YOUR first dragon?

      My Reaper habit started with a Friday night gaming session...
       
      "Tom felt a breeze wafting up from the chamber beyond. For some reason the air was hot and heavy, even though he was walking along a passage deep in an abandoned mine."
       
      "Ummmm. Sorry, but we have to stop here today." I did not have a dragon mini to use to harrass Tom. A salt shaker just does not have the same drama as slapping the correct monster mini down on the table. I also could not handle everyone laughing at my poor (ugly mishapen) solder dragon.
       
      Time to take a trip to the old Lone Star Comics and see if they had a Dragon that I could afford.
       
      As usual, walking into Lone Star was like entering Alladin's cave of treasures. Real Partha, Grenadier, Rafm, and more distinctively sparkled, beckoning, despite the cost. A Dragon was too far out of reach.
       
      Back along the wall, there was something new. There were affordable minis on the back wall!
       
      I was able to score a package of villagers, some weapons sprues, and a real Dragon mini.
       
      Tom was promptly roasted to a medium rare, and eaten by the freshly painted red Dragon the next friday.

      Don't laugh too hard, but this is the solder dragon in question. It is amazing what can be made with a soldering iron, a little flux, a bit of solder and a ton of patience. It did in a pinch, but was retired after the Reaper dragon made its appearance.

      Continuing to dig up my childhood minis... This crazy old dragon was done back in 1984, I basically dunked him in turquoise enamel.  While not sophisticated, the color was beautiful and it's one of my all time favorite sculpts so I left it intact and decided to try adding some details. Results below!
