This Reaper Bones Clockwork Dragon has been in a state of being nearly finished for ages.
I really wanted to get it done so the next time my Rackham Tir-Na-Bor Dwarfs get an outing, they would have some Dragon support.
I thought my Dwarf army would like a mechanical dragon, so that if they ever run in to a live one, they have some brass and iron to send against it.
In another game of Dragon Rampant, I fielded my Treefolk once again, a collection of oldish models that were not getting used for anything else.
Scantily clad i-Kore Sirens are armed with light bows and very little armour, obviously. As Dragon Rampant has a number of standard unit profiles, it is sometimes a challenge to match the models to the model profiles.
This old Reaper Wyvern is a nice model, another that does not come out much.
These GW models were originally bought to use as a Blood Bowl team, but I never got around to that. But having twelve means they make a great infantry unit.
The flying Wyvern is able to move over terrain so usually gets into combat first. This game was against Mr Steinbergs Saxons who were on the lookout for Gems and perhaps any firewood they could get their hands on.
These are also old i-Kore models, Blood Reavers, a reduced model unit but fast an heavily armoured.
The Saxons Command unit took up a sensible position in a ruined tower and managed to keep out of trouble for the battle.
Unfortunately the Treefolk army collapsed, the Saxons got their firewood. So in about 20 or 30 years, some more trees should have finished growing and they will have their revenge…
When all you want to do is sit down and get on with some painting…
There was no flesh to worry about painting on this totally encased Thermo Priest
Although unlikely to see action in a game of Confrontation, the stout chap will definitely get out there in a game of Dragon Rampant.
I really like this sculpt, a very aloof looking dwarf in his fancy armour and lugging his anvil around for any emergency battlefield repairs.
While on my Tir-Na-Bor dwarf painting binge (not sure if a dozen models is a binge), I painted three Forge Guardians will will bulk out another 12 model dwarf unit for Dragon Rampant.
