Default Question about modeling

So I am in the process of modeling a Dragon at the moment and am almost done with the basic shape of the head, body, tail, legs, and feet.

Was wondering if this would also be the stage i would get the basic Nurb shape down of his teeth, wings, spikes, and any other little detail on him, or should I wait until im in the final stages of my SubD modeling to go back in and give him these things?

no you wait

best to block out the entire model before going into details, that way you can make sure all the proprtions are right and changes to that is easier than when there are lots of details
that and i don't thgink you can get much detail from NURBS
