Default dragon diorama ideas

Hey everyone i just ordered the amazing ultraforge dragon seen here: http://www.coolminiornot.com/shop/mi...es/dragon.html

This absolutely my favorite dragon model and would like to make a diorama.he comes with that little rock base but would like to put on a large base like 120mm for the scene. The legs are connected to the rock which is fine ill just incorporate rocks into the scene to blend in. Any ideas on the scene, colors, and models to use would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking maybe a few spearmen models to face off in fear. Once again all ideas welcome. Thanks in advance.

Thx for the suggestion but im definitely going for a battle scene. The dragon is already armoured for war.

How about having it at the moment of landing in a mass of enemy troops (on the flank perhaps), the closest ones scattered and prone, and a couple more more, surprised/shaken/terrified, turning to face it?

Yeah Im thinking of getting a huge 100 mm x 150 mm blank base at dragonforge for the scene. I plan on having the dragon in the middle marching towards a small line of warriors of chaos (i have some spares to use) with these reaper elves flanking the dragon:
Number 1 elf- http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/elf/latest/14438
Number 2 elf- http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/elf/latest/14550

And finally ill have the male high elf from avatars of war as the rider on the howdah. Im also leaning more towards a snow scene since I plan on a light blue dragon with dark gold almost bronze armour. Thoughts??

This sounds like a fantastic idea, I really like it and agree with this scene.

Or

You could go with the standard single fleeing model FW loves so very much
