The Great Master from Drake: the Dragon Wargame

One of my favorite minis from the first Drake Kickstarter is The Great Master

In the game The Great Master is a Chant Constuct, which means he is summoned to the battlefield during play.

This miniature is one of the original pre-kickstarter Drake minis, sculpted by Alex Huntley of Warploque Miniatures. Which I assume also means that it is sculpted by hand and not in a computer. I made the mistake of priming it by hand, and since this mini has a lot of sharpish corners and bits, the paint tends to rub off leaving bare metal. You can see this on the horn in one of the pictures. I have already had to repair the paint job several times, even before it was finished. The paint job will not survive the handling of gameplay I think.

Good thing I have another one. Note to self: Always prime metal miniatures with a spray primer.
