Thar be dragons...

Well, after a near disaster with the anti-shine, this is the finished cheapo ($8 shipped!) Hero Scape dragon that was simply rebased and repainted.  I'm happy with the result.  The anti-shine did it's random "we're going to discolour everything to a flat grey..." nonsense that occurs very rarely.  Of course it simply had to happen when I was flattening a large dragon model.  Some scale shots included.

The paint scheme...while a bit drab was inspired by an idea I had a long long long time ago for my fantasy world setting.  The idea of cave/cliff dragons which resided on the cliffs overlooking the sea.  They'd perch there pouncing on whales, large fish and other poor ocean-going vessels.  Hence the stone-grey colour scheme, a kind of camouflage as they clung to the cliff face waiting for a meal.
