That really is a work of art, Andy! I can't see that there's much left to do on this. Any further idea as to when it will be released?

Excellent progress Andy...there really can't be that much left to sculpt, looking at it...

...It is a really excellent piece of work and even though you will be really glad to see the back of it, it is a truly marvelous piece of work that you should be very proud of.

Kudos to you Andy.

There is sadly still lots of work to do - lots and lots of tiny little things to sort out as well as a whole load of bigger things like wing fingers, claws, gfot to sort out the mismatched feet, add extra to the tail, particularly the end, sort out new teeth (old ones snapped off due to handling) decide on ears etc etc

It needs to be finished in the next four weeks or I go bust.

 :shock: I'm slightly embarrassed at how excited I was to see you'd put up new pictures. It's fantastic Andy - has such a sense of power about it. Best thing for me though, is how believable it looks - it looks like it could be a real animal, not something I could say for any other dragon figures out there.  :notworthy:
Off to put in two more deposits  :thumbup:

I often find myself disappointed by models of dragons. Weedy serpentine creatures that just don't have the majesty that a dragon should have.

This is not one of those.

I have never, in my entire painting "career", wanted a dragon model as badly as I want this one.

With any luck, they'll still be available when I have the scratch to buy one.

He looks great, not at all sorry I've invested in him. Now get him finished so we can all get on with our lives!  :wink:





...after all there's still that female netherlord to sculpt!  :whistle:

Oh, wow.  I hadn't checked the progress on the big guy for a few months, I'm quite pleased to see he's grown by leaps and bounds.  Really looking forward to picking this guy up.  I think  my game budget will be teetering back to minis.  I could'nt be happier.

To my mind this Dragon easy blows away every other Dragon model I've seen, and there are some excellent sculpts out there. The sheer attention to detail and effort you've put into it clearly shows. It's a masterpiece.

I just noticed (after how long) that the title says "the 1st ever Heresy Dragon"
Does that mean there will be more?  :whip:

Spent today chopping and drilling, trying to make new joints so that parts would fit together snugly. Was playing with metal-reinforced putty. Nasty, chemical stuff that sets in a couple of minutes. Surprisingly useful for doing large pegs etc to fit pieces together with. Will use it on the armature for the Giant when I start him, and will use it for the alternative necks I plan for the dragon, as it saves using wire and trying to get the initial layer of putty to stick. I can just mix up a huge wadge of putty and shape it into the approximate neck shape, hold it in position for a couple of minutes and then get cracking on texture, etc. Could be an immense time saver in that respect. Follow me on twitter(or facebook but twitter is better, use Tweetdeck to get all your facebook and twitter updates in one air traffic controller type set of columns) for more info on that as I go along.

And yes, there will be more dragons after this one. I have ideas for at least three more, if not seven. It's a matter of time though, obviously!
