Well, not yet, but now I have your attention, here are a few pictures of my Aureola Rococo dragon.
It is the smallest of the two that came in the AR range of miniatures, and since it was badly painted (with humbrol enamel paints) and slightly demolished it took me a bit longer to get ready for painting.

Both of the wings were broken off, so I "pinned" them in the hope they would be stronger then the original socket fit. I have to add that I'm not a hero in these kind of repair jobs, but it looks sturdy enough for the gaming table.

I did not have the correct rider, but an Elf with a weird looking spear from the same AR range would do.

And the result of my paint job is...

The colors used for the dragon are based on The Dragon Lord by Rodney Mattews. This artist got lots of other strange and weird things in his fantasy paintings, and I strongly believe many of the miniatures in the AR range are based on his art.
The rider got a pale skin color and a bright blue magical spear. Who knows what he can do with his magical weapon!

Anyway, for the time being this fellow will lead my Knights of the Silver Rose which were the subject of my former blog post.

Aureola Rococo Knights army.

I now have finaly painted (almost) all the old Aureola Rococo Knights of the Silver Rose I own. And as promised here are some pictures! Sorry for the long wait.

First are the foot spearmen. there were pictures of these before on my blog, but here are some new ones, back in the "old" style.

Next are a unit with a weapon that I would call spear-axe. One end has a spear head and the other an axe head.

Followed by the "Guards". A 18 men unit. Other foor units are 12 men strong.

New units now, starting with a mounted unit of axemen. Although they also have a bow and arrows with them.

And another unit of mounted knights, now armed with a spear.

All flags are based on free downloads of  medieval Korean flags, but with a linear B symbol hand painted on them.

That's the army for now. Except for a general (soon to follow).
I would like to add one more unit, but need to find a few more miniatures for that. 
Maybe I should ask Dave at Caliverbooks. The miniatures I'm after are not currently in production, but you never know...
