    Thanks, I am happy with the look of the army as a whole forest ;)
    I found out that the leaves on the bases let go rather easy when using them in battle(or transferring them from storage to the tabletop) hopefully there will be some left on the bases in a while :rolleyes:

    ** Something new I learned today, in Dutch this is called an 'elfenbankje' which literally translate into 'fairy bench' :p

    I think that was it

    Thanks guys!!

    That will be part of the whole army's theme, Bloodtoofs have yellow teeth or flames marking their armor.

    That would be one interesting Saurus :p

    Excellent dwarfs, never seen the unassembled gyrobomber before; thats a lot of interesting bits :wideyed:

    I do like the bomb pieces, might need to get some for other projects.

    I too, like them a lot, hopefully I will still like them while painting ;)
    It comes in many pieces indeed, if you assemble the gyrocopter you'll have the bombs as spare bits.

    I picked up this box from out of the hobby cabinet. It has been sitting there for a while once I couldn't figure out how to move on.

    Now I have some progress to show:
    IMG_20200903_103022.jpg

    IMG_20200903_103328.jpg

    I magnetized them so I can change between the Terradon or the Ripperdactyl. I have done just one for now. I used magnets between all part. between the tail and the body there is also a iron pin to strengthen the body once build and on the stake. IMG_20200903_101921.jpg

    IMG_20200903_102052.jpg



    IMG_20200903_102814.jpg

    Here are all the pieces apart:

    IMG_20200903_103639.jpg

    I still need to add the collar to the Teradons neck and then glue the body of the skink to the body of the 'Bird'
    Then I have 2 more to do and assemble all 12 Skinks for the box to be complete.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    I had some prime-time today ;)

    IMG_20200908_173839.jpg

    It was the first time I primed a piece of scenery(build out of isolation foam) I was a bit holding back because of the reaction between the compressed gas(used in spraycans) and the foam.

    At first sight no reactions visible, but on the other hand a very thin layer of paint is applied.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Glad to see the terrain taking shape, looking forward to those dwarfs.

    Also happy to see all that magnetization for the skink riders, wish I had gotten into magnetizing stuff when I put that unit together, especially the heads!!

    Thanks. The Dwarfs will have to wait, though. I would like to finish my SCB Ironjawz first.

    Today I did some touch ups on the first 5 Ardboys. They are getting closer to being done:
