An offcut of sprue was used to represent some more wreckage. Green Stuff was used to model earth churned up by flying wreckage embedding itself in the ground. Eldar Fire Dragon
4. A regular Fire Dragon. All of my Fire Dragons have wreckage of some kind on the bases, since they are adept at destroying heavily-armoured targets such as tanks and bunkers.
Green Stuff was used to sculpt the neck. Converted Fire Dragon with repositioned head
5. A converted Fire Dragon. The simple head repositioning completely changes the look of the miniature and creates a new pose for one of the standard squad members.

Eldar Fire Dragon updated colour scheme
13. In mid-2018 I decide to make some changes to the Fire Dragon colour scheme. The armour is now brighter, with a clearer distinction between the armour plates and the darker undersuit. I have also reduced the number of gems and changed the sash from white to blue, to tie in with the Craftworld colours.

14. The updated test miniature, after I had applied my modifications to the paint scheme. The armour is now more defined and detailed, as well as being a more vibrant colour. Reducing the number of gems has made the model less busy.

15. Rear view of the new paint scheme. The undersuit is now clearly distinct from the armour plates around the lower back and upper thighs.
