...I have purchased phlosque[1]. To wit a largish resin dragon I found cheap on eBay, which is about the right size to be the big boss in one of the adventures I'm running at Dragonmeet. Arrived today, and it's about the size I want, but even less menacing-looking than I expected. I will have to de-cute it a LOT; replace the cute widdle baby dragon hatching out of its eggs underneath with a pile of gold coins and maybe some bones, change the colour from greens and golds and reds (with little sparkly bits) to something a lot meaner looking, change the expression from "cute motherhood" to "hey, let's eat these bozos," and so on.

I may eventually post "before" and "after" pictures. If it works, and I can stand to look at the "before"

[1] There doesn't seem to be a good Wikipedia or other reference that explains what phlosque is, which is a pity. Think of it as the fantasy art equivalent of those pictures of cute big-eyed kids painted on velvet. There's a tongue-in-cheek description here, more brutally Dave Langford describes it as "notably and noisomely cute sf/fantasy art"
