    Two dragons I painted in the early 1990's

    Here are photos of two dragons I was painting in the early 90's before I stopped. Obviously unfinished. The paint is Testors (and no... I won't be using Testors paints now.)

    Cell phone photos.

    It's always cool to see peoples early forays into miniatures. Sometimes I wish I still had some of the things I painted in my early days, but then I remember the thick coats of Humbrol enamel before I discovered GW paints and I'm glad I don't!

    Are you going to strip these and repaint them or keep them to compare new pieces to?
    Are you saying Grade A, or Grey Day?

    I don't think I could strip them... they are fine as they are. Part of my past. :-)

    I love those classic dragons.

    I remember painting the GW wood elf dragon back in the late 90's and it was a blast :)

    I commend you on your decision
    I never strip my old minis. a testament of my own improvement. plus when I see where I was before and where I am now, it always serves as an incentive to try harder.

    I'm with Demonn on this. If I ever paint a mini, and i'm satisfied with it at the time i finish painting it. I will never strip it.

    The only miniatures I do strip are either ones i botch up, or ones i get from a friend and are already painted. Having a retrospective of your work is a good thing, and it makes me wish I didnt sell off most of my old miniatures from the 90's and early 00's

    Here's a photo of the box for the Fearless Frost Dragon... sheesh - I had the receipt inside! And it was inspected by #10.

    Purchased on March 6, 1993 from "Outer Limits" (don't remember where that was) - for $13.59 plus tax... $14.44.

    you'd be so lucky to get a dragon for 14 bucks today

    funny thing, you bought it a day before my 14th birthday - and it's for ages 14 and above LOL
