This blog is about the world of gaming miniatures, as seen from my perspective. I've been collecting and painting for over 30 years now, and while my primary focus is miniatures for D&D, I also enjoy many other games that use minis, so we'll be covering those as well. Thanks for stopping by!

DragonTooth Christmas Dragon

I always enjoy solving a lead mystery, in particular the kind where we go from a black & white drawing found in an old catalog to digital pictures of the actual miniature, in the flesh - well, lead - and sharing it with like-minded collectors.

So I am happy to present to you pictures of DragonTooth's D81 Christmas Dragon that came in the mail yesterday. He is a pretty chunk of lead, and I'm very pleased it is in great condition, considering how ornate the sculpt is, with all the spines and detail on this fella. It's a unique pose, not the traditional rearing dragon, but a sinewy, coiled serpent, perhaps snapping at an intruder attempting to sneak up from behind. I used some Blu-Tack to hold the pieces together, except for the wings.

What I'd like to know is the story behind this particular sculpt. Why is he a Christmas Dragon? Perhaps released at or around Christmas one year? His lair is in the North Pole?

His tail is a snake! And yes, he is a MALE dragon, for sure.

Once I get him cleaned up and properly assembled, I will take some fresh pics and add them to the Lost Minis Wiki. These will have to make do until then.
