Reaper Miniatures Dragon Hatchling Red - 77274

The fourth bones dragon hatchling - this one is the red dragon.  The first was the green dragon hatchling, the second was the black dragon hatchling.  The third was the blue dragon hatchling and now the set is complete from the bones kickstarter numbers 77271-77274.

I think I need to make a low-level module for my players whereby they start in a cave system and each level has a fantastical element of woods made from mushrooms for the green, a swampy damp environment of moss and acid on the next cavern level for the black, a sandy and hot cave system for the blue, and the final level would be lava filled pits with the red dragon as the final battle.

Painting instructions for Red...

Step 1: Undercoat model with Stynylrez green primer (this is awesome on bones)
Step 2: Use Maroon Red on body and wings
Step 3: Use Garnet Red on body and wings as first highlight
Step 4: Use Brilliant Red on body and wings as final highlight
Step 5: Field Grey on underbelly
Step 6: Add a bit of Solid White to Field Grey as highlights on underbelly
Step 7: Use Solid Black for horns and nose
Step 8: Use Solid Blue as highlight on horns and nose
Step 9: Use Solid Black on base
Step 10: Drybrush Concrete Grey on base
Step 11: Drybrush Arctic Grey on base as highlight
Step 12: Drybrush Solid White on base as final highlight

Kickstarter paint total: 104 + 1 Red = 105

Nice brushstroke.
The dragon is also nice. How tall is it ?

Thanks for the comments. The four dragon wyrmlings from Reaper are about the same height as a standard character - about an inch tall - they all fit on a one-inch base which is how I've based them.
