So... there are 60+ dragons out there and I have seen two painted.

Where are the rest of them and why haven't they been painted and posted up?!?

I don't know... you wait an age for them to appear and then everyone hides them away and don't show them off ;)

I've seen three.

There's mine
the other on the website
and someone posted a purple one on facebook over a year ago.

But, you're right I would have liked to see some more.
I will finish mine sometime in the new year I promise - other stuff just keeps getting in the way - I would say it's 80% done at the moment..........

washed both mine today,  they dont half make a racket in the sink, singing and burbaling as they clean up there scales.  :lol:
got one body together, and slowly following the instructions,  the plan is to fill it in a bit, then wile its hardening do the same on the second one.

Ive had to take over the diningroom table for this as theres absolutly no way theyd fit on my normal modeling desk. :jawdrop:

Now you can sweat every time you go within 3ft of the thing - I have lost count of the times I have caught it with my arm and nearly had a disaster - in the end I  pinned it temporarily to a turntable I am using  :paranoid2:

no fear of it getting pinned to the table.  if i did that Sappire penguin would kill me :lol:
i will say that so far its a dream to put together, nice big surfaces to glue, large joints for pinning, and the tolerances on the parts is very nice as well.  Andy and Ian a big  :applause: and  :thumbup: for that ( on the main body once the 2 halves were together the 3 spine sections literaly "snapped" into place  and neeed a hair of green to blend the join)
with the body set, the neck will support itself as a dry joint with no fettaling ! The upper horns on the head also self pin and hold, which made decideing which set, so much easyer...  do you prefer this set dear? or ( qucik swap)  this set?

The wings go together quite easily with the aid of some hot water to bend them slightly - they then fit along the curve very nicely - didn't need to pin them as there is virtually no weight  :yup:

well im a good bit further on,  im waiting for the urrent set of greenstuff and superglue to set.
necks arrached and blended, legs are attached to the body and base, and blended,  both arms are on the tree holding one blended the outher needs blendong at the sholder, the 2 resin tail parts are pinned and attached but still need blending. The heads done and the horns are on and blened but not yet on the neck.
Ive dry firtted the wings a couple of time and they look like theyll pretty much fit without any tweeking needed.
Im still looking at the whole thing ( and the prospect of doing anouther ) and going  :woohoo: .
this one will be for sapphire penguin,  so its for white primer, and shes still saying Purple!

I think purple would be really cool.  Like this:



Wouldn't do yellow as a belly color though, maybe white or really pale purple.

Just FYI:
The company making the deeper mould tin has promised me it will be delivered Monday. Then again they promised it would be ready before Christmas, and before that they promised it would be the right size.
We'll see.

Hey Andy, how about sculpting a little hobbit to go with him as a thankyou for all of us who've been patiently waiting this long?

I wonder how easy it would be to paint the Heresy zombie halfling as a charred husk.  :whistle:

When I get mine from my 'little' brother I will endeavour to make the time to paint it (round a stupid teaching schedule amongst other things). Ok I have to decide what colour still and wait for it to appear - or to be more accurate to be told we can go collect it as Enazel doesn't drive :D

Here you can see how I've re-cut the parts so that they can be spincast.

The bits that aren't in metal in that pic are what I'm intending to mould and cast in metal next week assuming all is fine with this new tin, due to arrive tomorrow (i'm assured it is the proper size this time. Fingers still crossed). Then once I've got a good set of castings - which willuse every erg of metal I've got in my various tubs of other masters) it's a case of cleaning them up, making sure that everything fits together and any deformities etc are filled in (like on the tail, where you can see a large patch of fresh scales covering an area that for whatever reasons of heat etc, sank away from the mould rather than casting properly.) Then I can send those masters off to Ed Fortae in the USA and find out how much it'll cost to get the queue sorted out once and for all.

The rock is going to Ian at Fenris - too big to spincast, it's about four inches thick.

Sounds like they sent the right size this time then.

Really should assemble + paint my dragon this year. Started cleaning the big bugger a while ago but then there was always something else to do (dementia and dragons don't go together too well).
