Unboxing Gargantuan Black Dragon

"Army or not, you must realize, you are DOOMED!" - General Grievous

Today we're going to look at another unboxing.  I was able to snag another gargantuan dragon.  I found another great deal online, so I took it.

The black dragon came in this box.

Inside the box was a map, a scenario packet, and a giant stat card for the old miniatures game.  I'm a huge fan of the map.  It's an underground cavern with a large throne, water pools and tons of gold.

One of the cool parts about the black dragon is the fact that it's aquatic, meaning it gets bonuses to fighting in water.  I've always had the idea of water pools that the dragon could move about in.  The map has these packets, and the scenario booklet talks about the dragon moving between the pools.  So I guess I got the map I wanted.  Pretty neat.

The dragon is amazing.  It's taller than the white dragon, which makes it look even more monstrous and formidable.

I played around and set up some minis to fight the dragon.  The whole thing looks pretty intense, and I look forward to getting my players to epic tier to have to deal with these monstrous beasts.

I think my favorite part about getting the gargantuan black dragon, as I now have the large, huge and gargantuan size black dragons.  I have three dragons for the three tiers of play.  Now I should have no qualms about throwing one of these fearsome beasts at a part of any level.

I plan on writing the results of the poll very soon.  City Building it will be!  As always, feel free to leave comments, and be sure to follow me on Twitter @artificeralf.


  1. The other dragons look so tiny compared to this new one! Reminds of of three billy goats gruff. My plan of attack? Go for his legs and slowly whittle him down, until I'm at eye-level with him. Would it be possible to freeze or evaporate the water? I'm already thinking ahead.

  2. That dragon's sweet! :D
