I'm sure many of you want to see that...but its time to appear here will come. Never worry. Right now, I want to talk bases. 120mm bases. I've always wanted to try one out. Here, I went and got two of them. I got my bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures. I came across my site a couple years ago, when I was looking for my ideas for my Cryx battle engine.
Anyhow, here's the base Cthulhu will eventually sit on.
It's all covered with fungal growth and giant maggots. It's going to be nasty and fun to paint. What were we talking about? Oh, yeah. My dragon.
So, here he is. Fantastic pose. As you can see, he already has an amazingly dynamic base. He's perched up on a statue's face. By the way? The figure you see above hasn't been glued together yet. I've fond that's a nice byproduct of the Reaper Bones plastic. It's very slightly "squishy" and so you can actually put pieces together without glue so that you get a sense of its shape and pose. It was very helpful to be able to pre-assemble the figure.
Here's the 120mm base he finally got mounted upon. The whole process was quite interesting. First thing to note - Reaper Bones material is not that easy to cut with your Dremel. It's malleable, making it want to often bend or flex when it's being cut. But in the end, I cut it just the same. I kept the statue face, of course.
And...below is the final product. I just used a piece of real wood to prop up the dragon a bit . I really like the result of this dragon on the super-large base. I probably need to add some flocking to the base before I'm completely done.
