Back in the late 80s when I started roleplaying games, there wasn’t many stores selling books let alone miniatures. So I was super thrilled when I found this dragon mini in a bookstore. It was essentially the first monster beyond orcs we had to play with. The original one I bought, I destroyed once I started playing Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader. It became a hat for a Snakebite Warboss, so it was with great excitement I found another one on ebay. Crazy to think that this mini was produced around 1984.

I’ve been wanting to paint this fantastic dragon from Mierce Miniatures, but first of all, I really don’t need more dragons especially not an Ancient Dragon, which I think this fits… and second of all it is a bit pricey, but I found it on half price during Black Friday sale, so I couldn’t resist. I decided to make is a green dragon as I already have an Adult Blue Dragon and an Adult/Young Red Dragon. I think it’s name with be Blightrix Venom Maw or Toxicantrax The Elder Blight. To make it look ancient and tough as a nail,…

I picked up D&D in Jan, 2018 (last year at the time of writing this) after a 20 year break and one of the first (if not the first) youtube channel I found with advice was “Running the Game” by Matt Colville – A really great, to the point channel of advice for DMing. Matt often makes a point of saying that his channel runs without ads so when he launched the kickstarter for his D&D supplement “Strongholds & Followers”, I immediately decided to support it regardless of what it was, as a way to give back to Matt. However, when…

The first time I saw this dragon I really liked it and it didn’t take long for me to buy it. I bought it as a Reaper Bones as I think the details are good enough on bigger creatures. Fast paint job, lots of drybrushing… in fact I probably spent more time making and painting the base. I also think this miniature has a good size as it works both as Young and Adult Dragon as shown below. Full dragon compliment Minus Dragon Wyrmlings … and yes, the green one is technically a wyvern!

In our 2018 campaign, we’ve been running around in a lot of Dungeons, but not encountered any Dragons (well… apart from our Rogue running into a Dragon Whelp). The closest has been an encounter with a Wyvern that brought down an airship, marooning the party on an island. However, I am hoping to change that in 2019 and this cool Silver Dragon from Wizkids worked perfectly as a young White Dragon, which goes well with my Ice and Snow Terrain Board… and it also aligns with an encounter I think may fit where the party is going. One of the…
