What Stewart Said.
Amazing army you have there. Looks like it took a good amount of work and it really shows. You have some great conversions and the army sits really well together as a whole. Inspiring work!
Xtapl and the Sacred Host of Xaxlachaq are heading out to an IndyGT today...I'll keep you posted as to how they do! I'm pretty excited, although the reality that I will only have one unit of Terradons (stupid 2250 still making me madfaced) is beginning to set in...
Just wow... amazing work there
It's been a while since this army began, but now that I'm updating to Age of Sigmar, I thought I'd keep you posted on what's happening to it.
First thing, I want to add some of the new models to my collection, and the one I really want to paint is the Carnosaur/Troglodon. For now, it's a Troglodon, but through some clever cutting, massaging, and strategic gluing, I managed to make the head/neck/oracle into one piece that can be attached and removed with a simple twisting. So now I can go back and build the Saurus/Howdah in the same way, and make it an interchangeable model.
The before shot:
Coming to get you real soon! Pics when I'm all done...
I like the color scheme, has quite the character
Very nice! Can't wait to see the finished product... judging from what I see here...
*does it count as necromancy is people reanimate their own threads??*
Nice to see this thread resurfacing.
New guys like me haven't seen it yet. Nice paint scheme on that big dinosaur!
Okay. So I've finished. I realized that in the years since I was playing regularly and painting professionally, I have totally forgotten how to take pics of minis.
So not the best photos in the world, but here's my finished Troglodon:
I quite like him.
Like I said, his head/skink is detachable, so I'll be painting up the alternate Carnosaur/Saurus head attachment soon. Meantime, with a somewhat heavy heart, I will be liberating a good chunk of my 8th edition army from their square bases and shifting them onto rounds. Over the next three days. So that I can play in a tournament on Saturday.
Because I am a glutton for punishment.
Thoughts and comments are always welcome!
I think my only point of critique would be that the rider is so similar to his mount concerning his color. I kinda like to have a bigger rider-mount-contrast.
But that's purely a matter of taste, the model looks very cool, that's a great paint job.
The troglodons scales look great! Well done after a long hiatus!
You have some amazing stuff on your army blog!
I love how you have based your army, it really gives it a great theme.Were those all custom bases? My favorites were probably the salamanders/custom kroxigor unit fillers, and that epic skink priest on a palanquin. Your army is quite unique!
What else do you plan to do!
