Crowley's Narthrax aka Iymrith The Ancient

Recommended Posts

In the Storm King's Thunder campaign I'm playing in we've had 2 encounters with an ancient blue dragon named Iymrith. I don't have a painted blue dragon... And my very pregnant DM isn't going to get one bought and painted before we need her, so...

 

Digging through my minis, I figured Narthrax was as close as I've got. It was going to be blue anyway (or dessert sands brown) so that was my top choice. I also thought about the wizkids dragons, but the FLGS only had the green, and I wasn't all that impressed with the sculpt. I'd rather drop $30 on another Narthrax if I'm gonna paint a brown one in the future.

 

Tonight I pulled her out, scrubbed her down, and started working on her base.IMG_20181115_210608.thumb.jpg.fb95bb6d3b43208879e73313c724b71a.jpg

She could probably for on a smaller base, but with her wingspan, and the fact that she's an ancient dragon, I figure she deserves it.

and the cork will give her some extra height. 

 

It helps her look even bigger as compared to Blightfang!

More to come!

Wow, it makes Blightfang look outright tiny!

 

Out of sheer curiosity, what size base did you wind up going with?  I'll eventually have to figure out a base size for hubby's Narthrax since I'm the one who does all the assembly and fiddly stuff in the house (he dun like all that initial stuff, but loves painting)

Blightfang is on a 4" base, while Narthrax is on a 5" base. Both will fit on a size smaller, but they look better (in my opinion) on the bigger bases.

      Topplethrax the Mysterious
       

      With a Ral Partha goblin for scale. Also the grid lines are 1 inch squares.
       

      Here is a second shot with him leaning on my pet rock. I named him Topplethrax because he topples forward without weight on the tail or something to lean him back just a bit.
       
      There are markings underneath one foot. Either:

      Definitely one of my favorite inclusions in the Ravenloft board game. Originally, I thought the paint job would be entirely a bone color. After I started prepping him, however, it became clear that there was just as much rotting flesh as there was visible bone. Makes sense, considering the artwork in the monster manual. A quick Google image search shows that people approach this model's paint job in a variety of cool ways. This combines my favorite elements from what I've seen, plus my own spin on the way I like to paint undead/zombie-types.

      I had a day off yesterday and wanted to get some work done toward staging an Original D&D game sometime “soon”. I’m working on a handful of potential PCs, but wanted to get a couple of smaller monsters done. These have all been sitting around in primer for a long time and I’m tired of looking at them. So…drybrush the heck out of them and call it a day. 
       

       

       
      The figures are all Ral Partha, two trolls (01-063), three skeletons (01-046), two wraiths (01-030), and a small carnosaur (13-004, an erythrosuchus to be exact).

      Another older piece from me. Not much to say about this one...I had a blast painting him. I wanted to make him a little bit darker than most of the other Ashardalon models I've seen. If you have any thoughts or critiques, I'd love to hear them.

      February was a productive month. Here is the Dragon and Stocking freebie from this past Christmas. #1631.
       
      Here is another little dragon. The Young Fire Dragon (DHL #3332). It's not easy being green.

      Here is the Human Wizard, Vodelis. DHL # 4009.
       

       
      He and Amari have the same broach. I think they are old friends from Magic school.
       

       

       
      And finally, here is the Bones Kickstarter V hippogriff.
