    This guy is a saurus infiltrator that I converted. (He/she/it is also my first attempt at green stuff, so expect bad sculpting.) I'm pretty sure that most of you are thinking that saurus are not clever enough to disguise themselves as something else, and the official fluff says that saurus are not as smart as skinks, but have some lore for him/her/it. (Not written down, all I have is that he/she/it is thought to be a Daemon Prince by some warriors of Tzeentch.) Now, on to the pictures! IMG_0106.JPG

    He/she/it also has a pet Sotekhound(A dog-like lizard that I totally didn't just make up on the spot) to go along with the serpent, and both are trained to attack Chaos followers on command, not on sight, which is useful if you're trying to hide within a bunch of Tzeench warriors.

    Thanks! The only reason I had the tyranid bits in the first place was because of a kitbash competition at the local GW store. I added the green stuff later.

    @Crowsfoot, not yet. All I know is that I'll paint the Sotekhound like lava and do a serpent design on the saurus' cape. I also have a surprise for this thread coming tomorrow, and you'll need to wait to see what it is.

    Thanks. All I have so far is that he (Let's just say the saurus infiltrator is male) is about as intelligent as a skink, and his name will be Tri-zan. I have another character coming up soon, along with her rules (If you want to convert your own version to use in games.)

    This guy isn't as converted as the other two, but it's different enough from the official model to be posted in here.

    Thanks. The reason I converted the oldblood was because I think that the greatblade is better than the maul damage-wise.

    I need more greatbow skinks in my life and this is definitely filling that void. I really like the helm and the straighter bow looks pretty rad too

    Thanks. The helm was a spare piece from the ripperdactyls, if you want to create another skink with a bow. I have rules for her on the Seraphon Battletome WIP thread, if you want to use them.

    I'm also really digging the base, it'll look really nice once it's all done up.

    Nice conversion, someone else had something similar. Are those supposed to be bat wings?
