The Painting Dragon

Well, not quite true I didn't paint something, that I could actually show :-)

While planing my Miniature Heroes 'Paint a Classic 2010' entries - I had a good look at The Miniature Heroes Web-store and found what I was looking for in the Mirliton - Nightmares sub-section.

After doing my order for some Demons, I came cross the sub section labelled: 'Sablesinge'.

Sablesinge is inspired by old promotional painting dragons done by Metal Magic (a - now, long gone - German miniature manufacturer).

Sablesinge is Miniature Heroes signature miniature - and Tim's version is done by talented John Pickford (think, John has become my favourite miniature sculptor) - so quite obvious, that I had to order that one, too.

The miniature is even more awesome real life, so I just couldn't resist painting it straight away. Unfortunately, the result was, that I didn't finish the planed 3th entry for the 'Paint a Classic 2010' :-(

But I finished the colouring the other day - and did the display base last night.

So here he is - the Painting Dragon:

  1. Nice work Clam.

    Seen that mini quite a few times, didn't realise it was one of John's. I, too, am growing very fond of his work!
