This model is actually a combination of a Games Workshop model and a Ral Partha dragon. I had to do some putty work and modify the models slightly to make this work, but the end result was worth it. I decided to go with a muted color palette on the dragon to give it a grittier look while bringing attention to the rider with a bright blue scheme. This helps keep the large dragon from dominating your attention. I also gave the flag a traditional coat of arms design to give the model a bit more color.
