Reaper's Skeletal Dragon - 2705

Back to the metal!  While the plastics are a great choice for inexpensive miniatures, there's just nothing like pulling out the heavy metal and rocking the gaming board.  This is Reaper Miniatures' Skeletal Dragon sculpted by Bob Olley.  A fantastic sculpt and a dragon that I just can't wait to animate on a group of "up to no good" heroes.
