Dragon Turtle

Another unique monster miniature from Reaper. This one is the "Tortoise Dragon," which in reality is just Reaper's way of saying Dragon Turtle...a high-level D&D aquatic staple.

The challenge for this figure was trying to find a base that accommodated its sprawling gait. I wound up using a War of the Ring cavalry base with the depressions filled in with cork.

When all was done, I was really happy with the base (I wanted a sandy beach), and the figure painted up really nice.

I used a little Painted Turtle inspiration for the shell painting.

Holidays are coming up fast...time to get a few more projects underway!

'Til next time.
