That looks awesome asssembled, and looks way better than that other dragon. The pose is so much cooler. Musuclature etc are waaaaayy better.

What colour are you going for Big Ned?

So jealous of the owners, not that I've ordered one but I just don't have the space for it.


Still want to paint her/his head though  :D :D

Considering how realistic the musculature is and the pattern of the scales I was thinking of a realistic crocodillian scheme. A green/brown scheme with rather sharp highlights.

I was wondering actually if Andy had a colour in mind when he was sculpting it.

What you just said, actually. Pale undersides fading to very dark spines. Take a look at crocs, or the film Reign Of Fire.

Andy... Your avatars are getting more and more disturbing.  8:::

I've been debating between a green or a red colour scheme for when I get my dragon as well.

That's funny, Reign of Fire is one of my colour references I've collected.

I've had no luck with red, it just doesn't seem to...work  :(
I'll probably start out with a very dark green, like Olive or something, then start dry brushing lighter shages, right up to am almost fluro green on the tips, then wash them all back with some brown washes.
The base will be creamy, washed back with yellow.
That's my plan, anyway, but if it turns out yellow and purple, well, there ya go!

Anyone ever see the film Flight of Dragons? I was thinking of trying some of the looks from that.

The evil dragon from that would be awesome. Black and pinky purple.

Never heard of it so I gave it a google and found the opening sequence on YouTube.

Was not expecting it to be an old Rankin Bass cartoon. It sure starts off a bit oddly. Is the rest of the movie any good?

Also noticed that the opening narration was by Harry Morgan, who passed away only a few days ago.

I really liked it. The evil wizard is voiced by... oh crap I forgot his name, same guy that did Darth Vader. I haven't seen it in ages and would probably cringe seeing it these days.

 :metoo:

Wouldn't mind knowing myself to be honest.

Not too fussed about the wait as I know i'll get mine eventually, but a rough idea would be good to know.

( Hehe, ages ago I posted that it would be Christmas before I got mine... Didin't realise it would be the Christmas after next.   :silly )

I'm not sure it would stand up to viewing today by an adult that didn't see it and enjoy it as a kid. But, as somebody that did I'll watch it every time it's on tv.

I've got 2 dragons on order so am tempted to paint one up in Gorbash colours and the other in Bryagh but will wait until I have them in my hands to decide.

 :boing: :woohoo: :boing: :woohoo: :boing: :woohoo: :lalala:

It's better than I imagined!

The quality of the casting is very good, the fit is excellent, certainly any person experienced with resin models will have no issues assembling the beasty.

The extra choices of tongue and horns are a nice touch.

I will have a great time building and painting this magnificant miniature.

Thanks Andy, hopefully you can rope in some more casters, and push more out the door.

Cheers!

Well, assembly so far has been very easy, lots of filing and cleaning, but once the prep is done, it all comes together nicely.

...well...

Except for that DAMNED FINGER

Here’s' an idea, make the finger available as a SEPERATE PIECE@!!!
Resin and moulding being what they are, the chances of the whole base, lef t leg, right leg, arm, and tree ALL coming together in  perfect alignment are nigh on zero.
The IMPORTANT fits are the legs and arm, they are very visible, and MUST be good, the tree and rock are not, chuck it anywhere, use green stuff to make new roots.
But having that finger on the tree makes aligning everyrhing a nightmare..

So, chop it off, let the arm rest ANYWHERE on that stump, who cares?
I’d hack it off, but then I’d have 2 faces to rebuild in green stuff…and that sound like effort.

I’d rather fling a few bob, and get a new finger…
