Very relevant question geep. I took literally no time over the two ME tiles I've done. My clump foliage is too high but I'm sure I could have sieved out smaller clumps had I wanted to.

I've secured it with hob e tac so it's very flexible and squashy so when turned over the tile is a little raised. However a little pressure forces it down and when connected it's less noticeable and less problematic.

I can't imagive it would be a hard job to file down the wooded flock area if you really wanted to either to give yourself a bit more foliage room.

I have one set of the (fantasy) tiles and found a 3d printer who printed me 20 blank tiles (single sided) which I will model with putty and clay. But I'm always on the lookout for more tiles!!!

Not been neglecting the WM. FINALLY acquired a chaos dragon then cut it up to make it more of an action pose.

It's an awkward POS isn't it? =-P

Did you pin it? Does it balance better?

Looking really good.  Nice idea for conversion.

I'm not really a fan of any of the GW dragon designs, they all seem to be balancing on their tails. I much prefer what Alexey has done with the Polar Fox Wyverns, they are in much better positions IMHO. Hence me chopping and changing this one a bit.

The arms are not pinned just glued and sealed with green stuff, but I did pin the back leg and the wings would have joined the back in a much higher position where as I wanted them to look like the dragon was gliding into a ground level attack. So these have both been pinned to each other and then pinned to the dragon's back, then sculpted quite a lot of green stuff to cover up the sizeable gaps. 

I had to cut about an inch and a half off the tail, so I've drilled into the main tail, inserted some pinning wire in there which I bent to make a bit of movement in the tail, I then built up rolled green stuff over the wire to make the tail.

SW - it does balance pretty well, I'm going to mount it on a Polar Fox clear base and to do so I've had to cut a chunk out of the dragon's belly. I did check the balance on the right style of base (now ruined by green stuff and superglue fingers!) but as I've ruined that one I've had to add some onto my last Polar Fox order!

Oh man, the one I had was so twisted, I had to pack the tail/base joint with green stuff.

The only GW dragon I don't like the look of is the zombie dragon, really, I just think they're a pain to put together.

Just a couple of WIPs. Chaos dragon after a spray and some oil washes...and some slayers who are coming along nice and quickly due to their universal skin and beard colour! More soon.

Ha ha, nah, they're beautiful!  The more painted lead on the table the better, especially if it means more games around here.

I'm afraid I'm working so I can't come.  I probably shouldn't go anyway as the last thing I need is to spend £80 on Infinity figures or £100 on scenery or £150 on some new pink elephant. =-P

Thanks for the kind words guys but most of the paint here is spray! Army painter "dragon red" for the top of the dragon and humbrol desert yellow for the underbelly!

Then a succession of oil washes over both with ocre and raw sienna on the bottom with aizarin and burnt umber for the top! Just spray and washes!
