A Dragon! Sort of...


I picked this chap up from Tescos for 99p yesterday:

Gronckyle Menaces An Unsuspecting Dwarven Hunter

Its one of the How To Train Your Dragon toys but I think he's just about perfect for 15mm scale gaming. He would also make a good mount for orc or goblin flyers...

Theres a couple of small bits needing filled but his paint job is surprisingly good, in fact I only need to define his teeth a bit and give him a more intimidating set of eyes and he's ready to go.

In fact I am so inspired I will be putting him into action against my Boar Company this weekend in a game of Song Of Blades!

There are several others available in the range but none were in my local store. I am sorely tempted to pick up a couple more if I see them though as they make rather unusual additions to the world of Aeroth and have the visual aesthetic of the Orc warbeasts from Leviathan (ie big and chunky!)

All the best!


  1. Sweet! Cant wait to see the write up.

  2. Haha awesome! I'd like to see some more pics!

  3. Hi!

    Thanks for the comments!

    I will try and get some more pictures taken in the morning! I managed to pick up a second Gronckyle which will have a bit of a conversion job done on it so its in a different pose. I will also be sculpting a rider for it!

    In other news I picked up some more bits and bobs that will be seeing use in both my Dwarven Boar Company, sinister evil-doers, and even some Sea Devils!

    Pictures to follow!

    All the best!
