    Amazing work @Crowsfoot ! Do you have any plans to add his stegadon in the future?

    I really like the spots on his skin, and the hand prints!

    I have thought about buying another kit and doing the steggy but he is huge compared to a normal one so I dunno what to do.

    Quick up date guys.

    I've bought a start collecting Seraphon box and I am going to do a sort of what you can build from the box type of tutorial, I won't be painting them yet just assembling and showing what is possible.

    I will put it in a separate thread and hopefully get it sticked once done then we can all direct new players too it.

    Over and out for now :)

    I think that is a great use for your "spare" Slann! He looks great! Regarding his mount; you might be able to get away with having him "float" above the backs of two Stegadons? Or simply build a throne that bridges both of their backs? Just an avenue of thought for you to consider.

    Yeah still pondering that one, I'm not sticking him on the dread but I am looking for a bigger stegadon probably a plastic model I can paint and convert.

    Cheers, for the base I used some grey slate to weight and fix the model, being plastic it has a habit of moving, I then applied pva glue and sand in areas, painted it all rhinox hide then painted the slate eshin grey, I washed it all with agrax earthshade but did not highlight it.

    I then added plastic palm trees as logs and separated the leaves and stuck them on as ferns, x long grass tufts were then added around each one with a few white flower tuffs scattered to break up the green, the skinks were old ones I rebased to help give a sense of the Dreads size.

    Update

    Seraphon SC arrived today and I am well chuffed, I got it for £30 on ebay still unopened and the seller included a box of plaguebearers unopened and a new copy of the Kingsblade book.

    I'm having a good day :):)
