    Very dynamic use of posing. Could you perhaps put up a pictured tutorial on your process for posing something? Give some of us some idea about how you worked that out?

    Great work. (and your English is ok)

    Again, awesome work.

    Thanks for very positive comment ;).
    Unfortunately, I didn't make the "process pictures". Guess, I will do that in future ;) But I might try to write down some description of the process, if you wish (just tell me, in what you are interested ;)).

    But it's nothing really special, just some cutting of legs, pinning and greenstuffing...

    Yeah very cool skink models mate, great work! That is similar to what I want my charmeleon skinks to look like, however, I don't think I have quite that level of GS skill...

    Thank you all for your comments. I was really pleased a motivated to continue my work.

    But enough of skinks for now (well, salamanders and their handlers are on their way, but thats for another time ;)), now I present you my Saurus Scar-Veteran. He is based on the temple guardian, but I've added quite a lot of things and have 'played' a little with the weapon (made a HW from his halberd). Hope you like him ;)

    (I still don't have a name for him, so if you have any idea, I am all ears.)

    And as a cherry on the top of a cake, I attach my conversion of EotG. You know, it is ENGINE - somekind of MACHINE or DEVICE. I wanted something more then just a golden/stone ring. I wanted something more machinelike. Plus I really love the arcanodon from the Lustria book. So I decided to make something similar. And here he comes (still WIP):
    EngineoftheGodsWIP0.jpg
    EngineoftheGodsWIP1.jpg
    EngineoftheGodsWIP2.jpg
    EngineoftheGodsWIP3.jpg
    EngineoftheGodsWIP4.jpg

    As you can see, the EotG is "interactive". I used pins and magnets so i can alter the alignement of the device according to the active special ability during the game. I'll probably post some detail shots soon, so you can see how exactly it works ;)

    Of course C&Cs are welcome.

    The "device" on the steg is awesome! Also, liking the color scheme you started on its head. Looking forward to more shots.


    P.S.- It might just be the pics, but I think the scar vet could use some washes.

    Thanks for comments.

    Rokanos: Yes, you're right ;) I really forgot to use the blue wash. Thank you for reminding me this.

    Ad EotG: There will be some more improvements in near future, I hope. Hopefully, I've encoraged you to make something similar ;) But beware: this engine takes a lot of space on the howdah. I am currently solving the problem with not enough room for the crew (I guess, some of the must take a walk on their own feet :)).

    A cool idea would be to have a couple of them mounted to the sides (i.e. hanging off the howdah). Kind of like some of your other conversions. You could even magnetize them so you could remove them when they die.

    Just a thought.

    Well, I am already working on magnetizing. The hanging guys croosed my mind, but it would be kinda tricky conversion (but really cool and challenging :))

    Thanks for your opinion ;)

    Speaking of EotG crew, I've already asembled the Priest. Obviosly, I swapped the head of his staff (this one comes from Battlemage kit - but you probably know that). I wanted him to have a staff which allows him to operate the Engine and this "head" is IMO doing hell of a job ;)
    On the pictures, the Priest is standing on base made from a scenery piece from Steggie kit. You can also see the pinning (there are holes and magnets in the base), so I can put him on Engine and when (accidentaly) steggie dies before priest, I can put him on his own foot...

    Kool Idea,
    That Stegie kit is probaly one of
    the best kits for making conversions. :)

    SeBM made a quick sweep over my plog on TPV and reminded me of one older saurus musician conversion. I haven't posted it here yet, so here the guy is.

    th_Saurus-004-Musicianwithhorn1.jpg th_Saurus-004-Musicianwithhorn3.jpg th_Saurus-004-Musicianwithhorn5.jpg th_Saurus-004-Musicianwithhorn6.jpg

    If you are interested, I made a horn using VC Skeleton Warriors horn bit, Saurus head and some spikes and feathers from saurus standard.
