Time for another one. And this should be one of the most extremely rare miniatures around, I couldn't find a single picture on the net or on collector's sides like "Lost mini wiki" or "Stuff of legends". It was one of my earliest dragon miniatures I bought from Tabletop Games in the very early eighties, and it was only shortly on the market:

Asgard miniatures, from their "Great Lizards" range, ASD1 "The Great Emerald Dragon"











The fallen knight and horse came from Essex miniatures.

The vignette was created around 1980/1 and reflects my standard of painting at that time, but please keep in mind: at that time no colour ranges for miniature painting were available, no one would usually shade miniatures, and I used to paint with thick acrylic paint from Lukas, 6 large pots with just the main colours plus black and white. That were the times ...  8)

Beautiful. Amazing that, given the limitations of the time, it still holds up so well today.

It certainly does!

I am amazed that you have managed to keep hold of such gems in such great condition, I am sure they would not have survived as over the intervening years had they been mine.

Wonderful.

Images like these are what brought me and my friends into the hobby many moons ago and I'm glad you shared them with us.

Well done on the painting and dio-making, great job there; but holy moley... I can't share the same opinion as the others on the models.
