The Blighter, or Elliot Gone Bad

A 3D printed miniature from Lost Adventures, printed in a single piece on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
This is the Blight Dragon, or The Blighter as I like to call it. (Would “Old Blightey” be taking it too far?).

I do not know if the name “Blight Dragon” is something “official” and specific in D&D or if it is something Lost Adventures have come up with on their own.

For me with a background in Warhammer, this would be a Chaos Dragon of Nurgle, or maybe a giant Spawn of Chaos, or even a Great Unclean One, or a stand in for a Maggoth or something similar.

It also reminds me of the imaginary dragon Elliot in the old 1977 Disney live-action/ animation hybid movie Pete’s Dragon. I think it is the vestigial wings and the distended belly that do it.

So is this what Elliot becomes when he goes bad? (Yes, that is what would be a Dad Joke, right there. In ancient times, this was known as a “pun”.)

I made an 80 x 130mm base for it, printed in PLA on my Creality Ender 3 Pro printer. You can see the print lines clearly along the rim, which illustrates the difference in achieved detail between resin and PLA printers. I cannot see any print lines on the dragon. Can you?

I was given the .stl-file as an out-of-the-blue freebie at the very tail-end of delivery of the very last rewards from the first Lost Adventures kickstarter campaign. It was originally from the Lost Dragons KS. It is currently available to buy from the Lost Adventures website.

This mini was finished on December 4th, 2020.
