I'm long over due for this post. For Waaaghpaca I chose to do a brand new Warriors army. One of the first conversion ideas I came up with for this army was Skull Crushers riding giant lizards. I realize it's a bit of pattern for me with the giant lizards. What can I say, they look cool.
I also filled in the necks of each mount to give me something to attach the heads to.
This is a pic of the knights assembled on the mounts. I love how the knights' pose match what the mount is doing below. It makes for a very dynamic unit. The knights heads are from Max Minis.
At this stage I created apoxie sculpt bases to mount the lizards.
Using brass rod I attached each Hydra head. They were the perfect size for the dragon ogre bodies. Next I bulked out the neck and then sculpted scales to blend in the areas to the existing hides.
Once the mounts were done I painted them up using the same color pallet uses on the Dragon Ogres. Purple was the main base color, the horns and claws were painted blue and the eye were painted yellow.
For the knights I opted for a soft blue color with pink and purple accents. I will cover the knights paint job in further detail in a future post on my warriors unit as they are painted exactly the same way.
Here our a few shots of the unit with the standard.
Well, that's it. I would love to hear what you think!
