I'm not Drag-on

Over at Dead Dick's Tavern and Temporary Lodging (, there is a monster theme going on for the month of May.  Now, I've been known to paint a monster or two on occasion so I thought it would be fun to participate.  And it gives me a reason to get a few projects back on course.

I've had this miniature for quite a long time now.  It's a Grenadier miniature, 25mm scale (although how can one really determine "scale" on something like this?).  This miniature has a bit of a long history.  I believe I purchased it decades ago, one day painted it is a gift, that gift made it back to me in pieces, and then I striped off the old paint and gave it new life.  I like it better this way.  Hopefully you will like it too....

The young lady is for size reference only.  But, if you're interested, she's a 25mm figure from Reaper Miniatures.  One of those "Bones" figures.  Not sure how I feel about that material but that is a discussion for another day.  Make sure you head on over to to see all the other cool miniatures being painted.  Enjoy....


  1. Wow! Great job on that classic bit of lead, Ken! If I'm not mistaken, that's a copper dragon...or maybe a brass dragon...I lose track of the metallics. Love the blue, and appreciate that you did a Grenadier model. I have a soft spot for those, and I make a point to paint some old-school stuff every now and again. The Reaper Bones miniature is a townsfolk strumpet. I know because I have the same one...I found she can ply her trade in Old West settings as well as Fantasy, and still look the part.
    Thanks for participating! I'll be sure to point people this way on my next post, as I'm expecting some other submissions soon!

  2. Lovely bit of work that, I was going to say was it the "black dragon" but I defer to Keith's vastly superior knowledge of the Grenadier range.

    I think it looks brilliant in the blue though, the wings in particular are marvellous!

    I rather like your "strumpet" too, but I've always been keen on them (don't tell the wife!).

    Cheers Roger.

  3. That's a cool dragon. And well painted. The strumpet will have to be in a Reaper order to entice my still unpainted western figs to be naughty.
