Herohammer Dragon: Sloth the Foul Dwimmerlaik

I give you Sloth the Foul Dwimmerlaik, Lord of the skies and keeper of the dark depths of the underground!

To quote Tolkien, “His armor is like tenfold shields, his teeth are swords, his claws spears, the shock of his tail a thunderbolt, his wings a hurricane, and his breath death!”



Inspired by Smaug from the Rankin Bass Hobbit cartoon, I gave him some ample amounts of flock on his cheeks and back.  The idea also matches some of my hounds and Nigel the Troll from the rest of my chaos army.

I also decided to give Ol' Sloth flames shooting out of his mouth.  I have had loads of fun with expandable spray foam, and decided to keep it going.  Also through countless searches I have not been able to come up with another single person who has done this online.
The face I made when I couldn't find any 28mm dragons with converted flames!
What?  No one puts flames on their dragons?!?  Well I think it's a cool look and I hope you do as well.










So Sloth will be joining my chaos army mainly for 4th Edition,  I haven't crunched the points yet for him in Third, so we will see.  Rest assured though he will be a regular character in the comic reports from now on.

  1. Dragons are flavour of the month it seems, and you've just painted another one for me to be jealous of you. is this some kind of conspiracy?

  2. That looks really great, good work.

    Weird that vomiting trolls are available in kit form but that fire-breathing dragons are not. How odd.

    I don't know if I have ever seen that version of The Hobbit. I have become bored to the verge of self harm watching the animated LOTR a couple of times, but not that.

    I'm finishing off a dragon at the moment actually. More modest than that one, but it's fun all the same :)

    1. Thanks Cheetor! Ya that is weird, troll vomit but no dragon fire? Oh well it gave me a nice modeling opportunity.

      You need to watch the cartoon hobbit! I love it! It is better in an hour what Jackson tried to do in 9. ;)

      Can't wait to see your dragon!

      Oh and p.s. Pulp Alley, Vice, and a card pack are on the way.

  3. That big red fucker is the dogs danglers buddy! I've always had a soft spot for that model, and seeing it in red has me damping up all over again, brilliant!

  7. Took me a while to figure out which dragon it was, it was only when I read on the forum that it twigged. Is that all lead? If it is, it must weigh a tonne :)

    It's the bomb either way. Massive amount of presence on the battlefield with your flame technique too!

    Well done :)

    1. Thanks 24! I can't wait for him to burn some Slaaneshi filth either! ;) I really need to get on that.

  10. As with all your stuff, he looks awesome. I would be terrified to try a mod like that. For some reason he looks a lot like the wyvern of the Herohammer Azhag the Slaughterer that I have. I was going to say something else witty or profound, but sleep deprivation has absorbed those thoughts into the ephemera.
