The Holy Dragon

Postby Zupponn » Mon May 07, 2012 8:12 pm

So, as you may or may not know, I recently came up with a new faction called The Order of the Holy Dragon. So, what many of you may be wondering is: What exactly is the Holy Dragon?

Image
This is.

Image
Although not as large as some dragons, the Holy Dragon is one of, if not the, oldest dragon in the Brikverse. During his existence, he has worked to spread his influence and gather a large number of followers to be ready to try and prevent or outlive Ragnablok. These followers see the Holy Dragon as some sort of god and among them, his powers are said to range from mystical to psychic abilities.

Image
Of course, he's also a dragon.

Image
The Holy Dragon has made it a mission of his followers to promote the spirit of violence and destruction wherever they go, so that the Brikverse can go on living like it always has. He has no desire to ever see Ragnablok and therefore believes that if the Brikverse can remain stable, then it will never come. The only thing that gets on the Holy Dragon's nerves is the undead. Destroying them is another mission that he entrusts his followers with.

Image
Speaking of which...

Image
I would not want to be in their shoes right now.


The Holy Dragon is very near completion, so I got excited and couldn't wait posting him. All that's missing right now is a couple of horns, and then I will look into possibly redoing how I attached the 3 main sections because they sometimes fall off. On that note, thanks for looking! I believe that this is my best creation to date.

This. It's good to see another nation besides the Silvarian Empire and Conglomerate of Salt Miners take a firm stance against Undeads.

Thanks guys, and the Order is probably more of a cult than a nation. I was thinking about making a storyline about them going to fight in the zombie infested Prussia or something.

This has got to be one of the best dragons "made from scratch" that I've seen recently. How big is the model fully assembled, and how long did it take you to build it?

Keep up the good work!

Thanks to everyone who likes the dragon! It's nice to see that it wasn't a failure. :D

The dragon is about 4.5 minifigs long, not counting the tail. I started building it in LDD because I lacked many of the parts. It took somewhere from 4-6 hours to get it how I liked it, counting the time spent looking at other peoples' dragons and drawing inspiration from them. Then it took me about 15-20 minutes to assemble it once I received the parts from my Bricklink orders. Then, when I found that the dragon had major balance issues, I added the 6x2x2 weighted piece that I had laying around to the back section, giving it a fat ass, but letting it stand on its hind legs without falling over.

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. :D

I think my favorite picture of it is the third one. Looks badass.

The Holy Dragon must become the official symbol of all anti-zombie forces. :D
