Hello here is the start of my Smaug diorama. I was originally going to wait until after the Hobbit movie came out later this year to create this piece, but I couldn’t wait (maybe I'll make another once miniatures, statues or toys of the screen used Smaug are created). All of the individual gold pieces were punched with a craft punch (very time consuming process. The dragon is a Larry Elmore dragon from the dark sword miniature line. I've always thought this dragon would suit Smaug. I'll add more weapons to the treasure pile. In addition, I will eight gem variants. I purchased the gems at Michaels, they each measure <2mm diameter. Smaug I'll paint a dark crimson red (similar dark red as the lord of the rings Balrog).
