    Hey guys,
    After a long time I decided to do something about my lack of an astrolith bearer. So I decided to make one of my own instead of buying the original(that I don't like). I used parts mostly from the start collecting box and some scraps of a guard banner(easily replaced by the warrior one). In the center my astrolith is a marble. Maybe in the future I apply an ink to change the color or just leave it this way. The part holding it is a collar of a troglodon. The marble glued perfectly in the center but to secure a drop of the model I made some safety holders. The rest are easy to find at banners of riders. I also used the legs of the oldblood provided at the box. There I need a bit of green stuff sculptin(I wasted the last piece I had). So I hope u like it. IMG_3151.JPG IMG_3152.JPG

    I actually really like him! The banner is huge, but it actually does a decent job looking like the actual model it is supposed to represent... and then some!

    Fantastic use of plastic bits, if I have time I may use your great work as inspiration to make one of my own :vulcan:



    Edit: and that center bit of the banner is a marble you say??

    Quite clever!

    Great idea! That is one awesome looking banner, and a clever way to use any leftover banners

    Hey that looks really cool man. Curious about the weighting of the mini with the marble -- do you ever have trouble with him falling over?

    That's an awesome banner. All the components fit together seamlessly. Great job!

    I has some issues but in general is steady enough. I'll need a 40mm base though to be legal. I had only 32 the moment of creation. If u place it correctly at the base is OK.

    I like it very much. I don't have one of these either.

    I needed to see both designs head-to-head.

    A couple of metric 40mm diameter steel washers stuck under the 32mm base would solve the legality problem and pull the center of gravity lower to solve any tipping problems.

    That helps a lot.

    Looks like @shole 's model is even bigger.

    I really like it man ! Great job! A while back I also did something similar for my carnosaur Scarvet, I think the Troglodon's collar works excellent in a banner
