"John vs. Monday" Reaper Dragon Diorama
This is a birthday/Christmas present for my friend John. I admit I am not experienced in diorama creation, and it's not so much really a diorama as it is a couple of Reaper figures glued to a wooden clock backing with some putty and sand around them. The Reaper figures in question are the dragon Gauth and a Dark Legends figure called Quinn. The figures are beautifully sculpted, but the dragon (my first ever) was not easy to assemble, with a lot of gaps needing to be filled. I had particularly a lot of trouble with the wings (including at one point attaching them completely the wrong way to the body), so I'm glad they seem to look okay now. I didn't do any conversion apart from a minor resculpt of Quinn's sword, and making some extra dragon scales where gaps had been filled.
Like the Titan, the larger model was hard to photograph in my shadowbox, but I think still looks better than my earlier mini photos; thanks to my friend Dasquish for making me the box. I'll probably get better at working with it as time goes on.
