Hi Andy can u let me know my position on the list please, my name is David Archer muahahahaha

78th, David. And everyone I've mentioned previously as having a number higher than 77, you just went down one. I missed David's name off the list for some reason...good job you asked, David! :oops: Apologies...

Go on then where am I?  Just so I know when to clear out the cabinet.  Not that it'll get past the priming stage, and thats if I get time to stick the b*gger together.  :scratchhead:

27th, Tim!

Ooh there's a list?!?!  Please can you tell me my number!  If it's low enough I might sell my place on ebay!!  muahahahaha :angel:

:tsk: You're 38th and Pete's 39th.

You weren't the only one who hadn't asked.  I haven't and I'm not going to.  I'll leave it a surprise, although I did pay up before the total reached 78.

Andy, could you just publish the final payment date of every other 10 in the pre-order list, so people can have a reasonable guess at where they are in the list.

YAY,
Lucky me, I grabbed a fully boxed, brand new, unopened Rackham Titan Dragon from ebay UK. (If 250 can be considered a 'bargain')
Now, i have the two best dragons ever made!
Back to the Heresy Dragon
Umm, firstly, what is it called?
It must be the only dragon mini without a name, it's simply: "The Dragon"
I s'pose that's kind of fitting...THE dragon, all the others mere pretenders...

Sooo, what would you guys paint him?, I am the sort of painter who really needs help with colour choice, I often copy a design I see on CMON, or the colour scheme used on the manufacturer's website or even th box art. Only occasionally do I dare to try new a new colour style, and get about a 50/50 success rate.
I have been geared towards a green style on The Dragon, but I guess that's cos I have only seen it in green stuff!
I would love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, opinions. How are you gonna paint him (her)?

Thanks

All other dragon's don't compare to this guy and aren't even worthy of the name "dragon" hence this being the one and only "The Dragon"

Mine's going to be brown.  Lovely lovely brown.  And not one of those eye-blistering garish browns like reddish-brown or golden brown.  Mine's going to be a brilliant shade of beige.

Beige...god, I HOPE not!

Like white, it's not possible to paint something white, there has to be SOME colour in there, a very light shade of...whatever, something, anything.
But pure white can't work, even "white" animals like polar bears and my Samoyed are in fact a million shades of light cream.

 :lol: The beige dragon. Now that's scary!

Mine will most likely be black or some very dark purpley/greeney version of black.

Ain't he adorable.

Also, Beefcake: the way I see it Andy's a bit like a young blood who's just gunned down an infamous old gunslinger in a wild west duel.  Now all the punks wantin' to make a name fer themselves will come gunnin' fer him.

That's kind of what the pose of the dragon is like too, ready to do some damage to other punk dragons ( and no, punk dragons aren't a good idea for a mini)

I'm thinking one red and one green at the moment. Nice and traditional. Black could be an option but to be honest I'm not really sure yet apart from the one being green.

Quick update from Ian at Fenris who has foolishly agreed to undertake the job of casting the Dragon for you all. Weather here in the UK is not helping out in terms of Dragon casting:

"Hi Andy

Quick update....

Still waiting on main supply of newplast for the big wing moulds (posted
the day before the snow, now sitting in a Parcelforce depot somewhere in
the UK...) but have been working through the rest of the pieces with
what materials I do have in stock. Head & neck are done and should
(hopefully) see test castings today/tomorrow. Pics to follow as soon as
they're worth looking at :)

Still got snow on the ground here, expect you're the same. Van has been
snowed in since last Tuesday, so still walking to work. All adds to the
fun....apparently. Cold weather is buggering up mould cure
times....resin generates itsown exotherm so still sets reasonably well
at approx 15 degrees (the best I can get the workshop up to at the
minute) but rubber is taking 18 hours to cure hard rather than the
normal 6-8. I always seem to get big casting jobs at the time of year
when the weather least suits it...two years back it was giant pub signs
for greene king brewery, last year 9' tall flake for Cadbury World.
C'est la guerre.....

Cheers mate

Ian"
