    Draconians

    Ever since I was a child, my favorite novels to read were Dragonlance...and Draego-Man reminds me of the Draconians from the Dragonlance saga...anyone else know what I am talking about and agree with me?
    Good Journey

    Agreed!

    The real reason I'm getting Draego-man (multiples of him in fact) is because I'd want a Draconian Army for my Sword and Sorcery figs display. Come to think of it, Maybe I'll try customizing a MOTUC Caramon or even Verminaard

    If I was to find a criticism for DM, its that he looks too much like a Draconian to me; which is why I wont be including him in my motu display. But that same quality is why I love love love this figure!

    That's it exactly! The DragonLance Chronicles are my favorite books of all time (and I read a helluva lot of books). He IS a Draconian!

    That's exactly what I thought the first time I saw him. Anyway, the first cycle of Dragonlance is one of my favourite fantasy sagas and I always loved the Draconians on the interior illustrations (and the Ral Partha miniatures) so I don't mind that at all

    It'd be great if the 4H snugged in a Kender-like creature as well

    I thought the exact same thing when I first saw him! To be honest, he's one of the few figures that I may acquire several of simply because I want a Draconian army...
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    I can see that, and those were some of my favorites as a kid too.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Hear, hear!

    I'd personally want to see Mind-Flayers/illithids and a Beholder.

    Yea I picked this up too, looks very Dragon Lancy to me. He is a fantastically designed character but very cheap in terms of originality.

    I keep dreaming of getting several Dragomen, repainting them, and posting them to remake this scene:
