    So this is my skink chief I just started. I'm just not really sure if I made the bow too big. I wanted him to match some old skinks w/bows[​IMG]

    This is so cool! That is an amazing idea for a skink chief. Looks so good can't wait to see it painted.

    Thanks guys. I wouldn't get too excited for an awesome paint job, I'm not the greatest painter. I just have fun with the conversions and bases

    Doesn't have to be a great paint job to look great, the conversion is amazing, the paint job will just highlight that.

    Yeah so he definitely has a bow that is WAY bigger than the old skinks with bows...

    That being said that is an AWESOME conversion that I REALLY WISH I had though of myself! While he wouldnt work for a normal rank-and-file skink, eh would definitely work to be one killer skink chief. That skink is like the Chuck Norris of skinks. Dang that is so awesome. Fantastic idea thanks for sharing!!!!!!!! :spiderman::bored::argh::snaphappy::snaphappy::snaphappy::wideyed::wideyed::wideyed::wideyed:

    edit: I have saved this picture for future reference. If I ever have the right left over bits to make a similar model I plan to make a tribute to this skinks awesomeness

    you could use some pieces of fine wire twisted together to make a decent bow string. ;)

    That's not a bad idea, I was originally going to use fishing line, but I've got tons of thin gauge wire hanging around that I could use instead. Hmmm

    I finished his base tonight, just some simple rocks, nothing really fancy, but I'm still happy with how it turned out IMG_20161209_231226629.jpg IMG_20161209_231630851.jpg IMG_20161209_231642608.jpg

    Thanks, honestly the cork bark and aragonite sand does all the work, it's got the nicest mix of big chunks and fine sand, and cork bark has an awesome rock texture after some drybrushing

    I also did some work on my Lord Kroak, he's pretty much done except for some highlights on the rocks on his base IMG_20161118_224513772_HDR.jpg

    Haha thanks guys, it's actually some old manzanita driftwood (all driftwood is not created equally) which has awesome branch-like structures. And I don't have much in terms of wip pics, but the tree is pinned in place using paperclips, and then the clump foliage is just large chunks kept together by some fine wire snaked throughout and then sealed together using matte sealer. It was a pretty simple conversion that people love. Only issue I have with it is that when looked at from directly above, it looks just like a normal clump foliage tree IMG_20161107_212111515.jpg IMG_20161107_212704636.jpg
