Purple dragons are lithe and have sinuous necks, so I chose the black dragon hatchling of the other Reaper miniatures. I removed the front-facing horns and applied the right coat of purple. Voila! Instant baby purple dragon.
You'll need to base this miniature, as its movement -- while making for an interesting sculpt -- doesn't make it particularly stable. My daughter loved it, and that's what mattered most.
