I didn´t add the elf rider or any of the armour as it I only wanted a dragon which could be used for a wedding present

I'm not even going to ask...

Very nice build, what does this scale out to?

Thanks Richard.  :)
It´s a 28mm scaled dragon...height without base 20cm´s, wind width 25cm´s.
The only complaint I´ve got about the kit is the base. The one supplied is way too small. Even after I´d filled it with plaster it was still to light and the slightest nudge would send the thing flying (no pun intended  :) ) It wasn´t really a problem as I intended to base it anyway.

It was given over at the wedding party on wednesday night  :wink:

Paul, that's a beautiful work.

I am glad You did not add the rider, the model of the dragon looks much better "saute".

Wing plating seems to be battle damaged. AAA? ;)

Thanks.  :)
I attached pieces of the armour with blutack before painting and it looked very bad...made it look very comic book. The rider looked even worse...for one, there´s no girth strap that would hold the saddle onto the dragon.
Fantasy without logic just doesn´t seem right. :lol:
