Among the other projects on the go at the moment, I'm embarking on a couple of 28mm armies for the Warband Fantasy rules.
I have a fair amount of suitable figures in boxes or languishing about in bare plastic, so I figured I should put them to good use.
I've started with a dragon because...well...why not?!
The fine fellow below is actually from an old Games Workshop boardgame called Talisman.

He was in pieces in a bits box so I rescued him, glued the broken bits together, slapped on some liquid green stuff to cover the gaps, and finished it off with a bit of paint.
I went for a green colour as it means he'll fit easily with various Warband armies (Dragon Men, Wood Elves, etc.).
|The business end of "El Draco". I toyed with a green tongue but I'm pleased I went with red.|
|The base isn't done yeat of course, but here he is in profile. Basing up for Warband means he'll be in a 120mm x 60mm base so i'll dig out some terrain to add to it. Not sure what yet.|
|I tried for a sort of leathery look on the wings. I think they came out OK.|
Next will be some old GW Brettonian knights that I've had for years, and I think the first army I'll do is a Dragon Men force.
I'm planning to do an Undead army to oppose it but nothing's set in stone yet. It depends what I've got in my stores as I don't want to buy too much for this.
Star Wars Legion was released recently and I'm planning to spend a bit on that, so...
Still, a good start with the dragon I think.
