Andy. Just paid my last 2 payments for my drags-on.     muahahahaha

Just need to know about shipping now. 
When yours is due in, I'll let you know! I'll only spend it if you send it right away...

No problem-o   :thumbup:

Just picked mine up from my kind friend who went to salute. Its even bigger than I remembered, now just got to work out where everything goes, that and get a bucket to soak it all in!

Those who were patient enough to wait for the production one will not be disappointed, even the "slightly less then perfect one" (as Andy called them,) I've got is much better than most forgeworld items I've had.  Any mould lines on it are, in my opinion, well within acceptable levels, most being paper thin that come off with a suitable application of fingernail.  Overall if this had been a production one, I would have been well chuffed with it.

Anyone who's on the fence about buying one, I can confirm that it was well worth the wait.  So thanks Andy, I'm one very happy bunny.  :applause:

Now, what colour to do?..............................

To be fair, Craig spent 3 hours picking the absolute best castings out of the 20 we had so the 10 that went out were much better than I would have expected. If I had packed them they would have been equal mixes across the twenty of good bits and bad bits so you ten people who picked one up at Salute have come off really rather well!

However, the ones Ian will cast next will still be impossibly good castings compared to those ones. You can always buy another one to convert! ;)

Wasn't meant as a criticism at all. I was very pleasantly surprised that there was so little work to be done to it. Just a little gap filling and hole redrilling. What I meant was if you had told me it was a final cast I wouldn't have had a problem with it. My apologies if it sounded otherwise. Craig did good :)

I am comfortable making the wild assumption that most of us are over 20, and started modelling back in the days of Asgard Miniatures.
Have you got an old mini from the early 80's...my, weren't they appalling!
My somewhat nebulous point? That even the poorer castings would be "acceptable" for most modellers, who can still remember filling and filing for several hours to get a miniature into a shape that vaguely resembled it's supposed subject matter, as opposed to, say, a used condom stuck on a walnut.
My point's point, is...sell the suckers at half price!

Now that's a miniature line that's never been addressed before. Maybe this should be in the suggestions thread.

Er..... what size was it again?

I need an exact figure of the total height of the dragon (preferably in metric units), to see if it will fit in the cabinet of a TV/storage combination I've just bought.

It's big..real big.
No, I know what you're thinking, but you're wrong, what you're thinking is too small.
OK, think of the biggest thing you can think of..
now double it
got it?
It's bigger then that.

Hope that helps!  8:::

The pics on the Dragon page have a ruler and the cutting mat grid on some pics. Andy also noted that "It's about 29cm from the base of the rock to the top of the wing, and about 40cm wingspan."

Hope that helps.

Thank you very much.

So 30 cm tall aprox. It should fit (barely) inside the cabinet.
I am already thinking of a diorama...

its also 24cm front to back.  Mines comfortably resting in an Ikea cabinet with a giant and a huge mek on the same shelf, its more hight than width to be honest.

Out of curiosity, are the only ones sent so far the original 10 ("imperfect", although apparently fine after all)?

yes, I can assure you that once this elephantine gestation is over, and the models start getting shipped out...this topic will suddenly start taking on weight like an American schoolkid in a donut shop.

Having just been gifted an airbrush and compressor from the lovely folks at a job I'm leaving, I am even more excited about seeing my dragon in the flesh. Now to think how to paint it!

Actually, yes, I was. Something went very wrong after the show yesterday and I suddenly was wracked with uncontrollable shaking and shivering for two hours, then boiling sweating for three hours, then shivering again for two hours. I haven't slept a wink in 2 days. Don't know what's going on. think it might be utter exhaustion.

But yes, Dragon coming soon now!
