Reaper Miniatures Dragon Hatchling Black - 77273
This one was a bugger to try and photograph - while small, it's long and wide at the same time and I used both a digital camera with macro settings as well as my mobile phone which is an LG-V30 with a decent camera - neither were able to quite capture the miniature appropriately - oh well - it looks cool and it will be great fun for a low-level party of adventurers. Quite happy with the pit of acid from which it's emerging - just don't tell Aeofel.
This is the second of the four hatchling dragons which came in one of the bones kickstarters. The green dragon hatchling was done back in November. I have the red and the blue sitting on my desk all primered up. So look for those hopefully sometime soon.
