    Wow those look fantastic @Bowser! Really great job on both the skinks (err... koopas). Your work always continues to amaze and improve, I like how the first skink chief's head was made, nice job with whatever clay/green stuff you use. I also like how you painted the staff of the priest (the green and yellow was genius).

    They're all tortoises! Except for the Slann who's playing hook-a-duck and the Mario Commissar Bros. Love it!

    Your army has so many creative conversions that it legit blows me away. I defs never would've thought to use genestealers as base models for dry Bones but they actually turned out so rad. Would love to see some koopaling models in the future(Morton koopa jr is best koopa)

    Hahaha... never thought I'd see the day that I was inspiring!! :D Humorous... perhaps, "argumentative"... likely, persistent... most definitely; but inspiring... good day for me!


    You did a great job @Bowser . I looks amazing and is perfectly sized. What did you make it from?

    An old 50 mm square base. Bit of a pain to cut, but I am going to use the square bases for something.

    Yea I can imagine that would be very troublesome to cut. What did you cut them with?

    I might have a suggestion as to what you could use square bases for (but you probably won't like it) :angelic:

    Make a KOW army?

    Scissors and a hobby knife. Drilled out the eyes with a pin vice and hobby knife to get them the right shape. The 20 and 25 mm bases are much easier to work with, once you remove the sides they're basically flat squares of plastic. But, the larger bases have these little weight bearing circles on the bottom. Need scissors, or a lot of patience with the knife.

    You're getting warmer!


    Sounds dangerous. I hope you're careful with the hobby knife. That is definitely an impressive result you were able to achieve, especially considering the tools you had at your disposal.
