    Man this is so amazing I just found this randomly on Google Images while looking up inspiration for ideas to make my own Mazdamundi conversion. I just had to sign up and post here. Love the attention to detail and staying true to the video game version, even down to the shape of the headdress and the handprints on his stomach.

    My question for you is how exactly does one make that headdress with green stuff? I have only used greenstuff for gap filling so is such a feat impossible for a beginner?

    You can make a headdress using spare parts, although not true to the video game still very convincing.

    Oh man very nice. Where do you get those pieces from? I recognise the skull in the centre as a drum for Saurus Cavalry but I'm not too sure on the others.

    Mostly bits from the guards set, I guess...
    Also, to answer your original question: it's possible to make the headdress from green stuff (obviously... though it's not an easy thing to do)... the trick is to build it up slowly from different layers... going from a rough shape to more detail... also using some kind of armature can help... loops of wire or even some cutout pieces of plastic card (e.g. invalid credit card? ;) )can be used...

    Thanks, The main part of the headdress is the stairs from the stegadon kit inverted then I just used bits from the guards/knights kit.

    Based on Google Images it looks like OP actually fully painted this model but it seems he hasn't actually posted the completed product on here, but on other websites instead.

    Hello!

    As others said, it is definitely possible! I first made the basic shapes from clear plasticard, and built it up slowly, bit by bit, using greenstuff to fill it out:

    You got me! ;) I've been recording my progress on instagram as well. Here's how Zlaaq's shaped up:

    @Crowsfoot that headress looks great! It fits his head so neatly! Great work on all the jewellery too. I'm a huge fan of your 'make the most out of the start collecting boxset' post! I'm planning on doing a submerged troglodon soon.

    @Oh_Man thanks! I tried hard to match the look of the video game. I even considered trying to sculpt him holding the cobra mace, then decided he was enough work as it was...

    Thanks for the feedback y'all!

    @Struan Murray

    Now seeing Zlaaq finished I will have to up my game and finish mine, thanks for the comments about my tutorial on the starter box ;)

    I need to learn how to sculpt and start doing one off pieces!

    That is some mighty fine work. The conversion, the painting, the basing... all solid!

    I can clearly see a whole lot of work went into those edge highlights, but it was worth it since it looks great!
