What dragon would you choose?

Recommended Posts

So I plan on making an order soon and besides the cool duck warrior that just came out, I was thinking of getting a dragon. What bones dragon (under 30 bucks) would you choose as a first BIG dragon?

my two favorites:

77279: Narthrax ($29.99) -dynamic vicious, everything you want in a dragon. 

77565: Kyphrixis, The Copper Dragon ($19.99)  more reserved. doesn't have to be good, but may talk before attacking.

Narthrax is still my favorite dragon of all favorite dragons. Julie Guthrie really set the bar on that one.

77542: Marthrangul, Great Dragon ($29.99) I love his sneaking up pose and he's really big

77323: Blightfang ($29.99) got cool kinda leafy scales

77177: Wyrmgear, Clockwork Dragon ($25.99) l'm working on this guy right now and having a lot of fun 

77625: Invisible Kyphrixis ($19.99) invisible can do all kinds of cool effects or just paint it regular 

 

77545: Diabolus the Devil Dragon ($29.99)

I also have a soft spot for this guy he's been sitting on the shelf waving at me dry fit since he came in the last Kickstarter. I really need to paint him up.

While I do like love Wyrmgear and Ebonwrath...  I keep wanting to steal hubby's Narthrax the most, so.... Narthrax.

Good suggestions! what are everyone's feelings on 77555: Viridius, Great Dragon ($29.99)?

 

That's an awesome Dragon!

Have you seen @Metalchaoshis metal version?

He made different horns and antlers!

Viridius is also a big guy with a lot of personality, he's got a bit different scale style than most of the others.

Cygnwulf's WIP has a lot of nice close ups of the unpainted bones version of the sculpt to check out.

I definitely want to get Narthrax , Kyphrixis(both regular and invisible), and Blightfang when all this craziness around me settles down and things start moving but for now I went with Viridius. Cannot wait to get it going and throw on a nice airbrush paint job on it.

Good choice!

The Bones Dragons are reasonably priced, you will get the others one day.

I have to say Narthrax is a great first dragon (and not because he was my first :D ), but if you're like the rest of us, you will quickly end up with ALLTHEDRAGONS!!!!

My ears are tingling... I really should finish that dragon.....  

 

You and me both.  I still only have colours blocked in more or less on my Ebonwrath...

Narthrax definitely is a nice looking dragon, that's for sure!

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Painted this for the Lost Mines of Phandelver module that I am running.  Venomfang will be reoccuring throughout their adventures. 
      I painted this faster than usual, but would not call it speed pained because it still took me about a month. I put a bit more into it than my usual speed paints, but a little less than others. It is always hard from me to take pics of larger models, probably should have taken this one outside, may have benefited from the background trees and grass more than most other models.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
