Those cobblestone scales work perfectly!

He's wonderful but what will you do with the beautiful wings?

Can't speak for Evilhalfling, but in these circumstances I would convert a Large or Huge giant into a devil or demon! Or maybe turn a giant snake into an Amphiptire? a giant bull into an infernal Lamassu? Options abound!

Seriously except for a good base I got nothing for improvement.  Nice job!

 

I don't know - I have a kit bashed Stormwing dragon with alternate wings already - perhaps he needs 4 wings? 

I hadn't even thought about it till you asked.

This guy looks great! The mottled cobblestone look of his scales is awesome. 
 

It makes me want to do something similar. If Marthrangul ever comes back in stock, I may need to pick him up. He would work great as an ibrandlin dragon for D&D (a CR 5 gargantuan dragon in 3e).

Great conversion, I had to go pull up a picture of Marthrangul to see where the wings were supposed to go. 

I think the paint job is also very good and don't see anything to add/change.

It's a great take on this mini.

 

I do believe he deserves a nice scenic base.

 

are you offering?  I love looking at your bases way more than making my own. 

My thought problem is that he should have a base that looks alot like him, to emphasize his camo,  but then that seems like it would reduce the impact of the mini. 

 

perhaps something where he is obviously out of place, like slinking down a village road, or breaking into a stable...

He's a Desert dweller, right?

 

You could have an oasis, maybe a girl getting water and he's sneaking up to her from behind.

A few palmtrees or shrubs to hid him behind.

 

 

Or he could be roaming around a temple ruin, or just a sand base with a few skulls.

      So when I unpacked this Big Boi in 2017  I thought he would look really cool without wings.  but I'm it will be a lot of careful work to carve off the joins and resculpt him,  I just don't think I'm ready.  In February I did the scales for my verocthulu conversion, and thought "I could have done that better."
      So this is better.  
       
      This Dragon will be the colors or earth.   Burnt Umber base, and a hide scattered with Burnt Sienna, Tusk Ivory, and Leather Brown with ochre and NNM gold colors on the belly. 
      perhaps some cool gray or blue washes in the shadows.   The scales will be individually shaded, and the hide below staying the color of brown liner, or umber in the well lit areas. 
       
      So far its been about 4 hrs of work in sculpting, cleaning, gluing and mold line removal.
      it took 45 min just to cover him in brown liner.  He is a really big dragon, and I have no idea how long this is going to take. 
       
      but im getting a little obesessed - I don't want to schedule a meeting or go grocery shopping, I want to add more paint... 
      this feels like how I ended up with a dragon named Insomnia - who was painted almost entirely between 10pm and 7 am.   I kept waking up with new color ideas. 
      Or the DDS2 dragon who I spent 2-4 hours a day painting for a solid week, and another hour a night for the week after.  
       
      The last picture is my inspiration for the scale colors - the eyes will be much simpler than this.

      So I'm currently in the stages of prepping Marthrangul for a contest. I'm also painting the Frost Giant Queen as a backup entry. So once I get started of love all the C&C I can get. I have a little less than a month to do him in.
