Terradon Terror

This was a fun conversion that I made many years ago for my Lizardman army.  I think I made about six of these conversions... using an I-Kore flying lizard critter and a GW skink.

It took some doing to get them to sit on these versions of Terradons, but it was a lot of fun to see them all together!  I painted each one in different colors, and this is the last one remaining.

This was also an experiment in painting plastic aquarium foliage.  Now that I have all the different paper foliage, life is getting a lot easier. While the plastic foliage is very resilient, it is not as easy to paint as the paper foliage!

Zombie Celt

Some warriors never die!  Including this Zombie Celt from Reaper Miniatures.

I had fun with so many elements... but the tartan was really well sculpted, and there was enough of it to try out a new pattern, which was a series of stripes.  I have seen this a few times on very large busts and huge sculpts, so I thought it might be interesting to try out on this guy.

With all the exposed bone, I had thought of going more greenish-blue with the skin colors, but I wanted to have a more bloody appearance to compliment all of those greens and turquoise shades.
