    Yeah, I was thinking something along these lines. I mean, the current one is floating, why not this one too? Add some giant tusks, feathers and BOOM! You're good to go!

    I also have a GamesDay Slann coming in as well as another Stegadon. I'll plan on using them for Lord Mazdamundi.

    Ohhh excited now, remember that Zlaag is bigger than a normal Steggy so you could convert a plastic model that is a bigger scale?

    I absolutely LOVE what was done here, but have no idea how he achieved that "tent". I originally had a similar idea and then I saw this one and thought, "Perfect! Oh crud....how the heck...!"

    Not really that much, since I already have a Stegadon on the way, but I certainly wouldn't mind see other options!

    I don't want to give too much away but this model is cheap fits the same base as a Steggy and is ripe for converting.

    So this is somewhat along the lines of what I was considering. I had even thought about the tent idea before I saw this model, but I have absolutely no idea how he did this! If that's Green Stuff work, DANG. It looks amazing! I love the tail, but the tent is what really caught my eye! Any ideas?

    I have seen somebody doing something like that using some tissue that he soaked with PVA glue.

    Huh! I have seen that video before, but I didn't think about it! Thanks! That might actually be a good method to use. I've seen it used (quite effectively) to make the "roots" of trees before. I've never tried it, but I might experiment with a few trees before moving on to something like LM.

    Just thought I'd share a few models that I finished as gifts for a few friends.

    How do you do the bases for your wildriders? I love them

    I used grass flocking for the base layer, then I used little tufts of different grass glued to the top as well as the little seed pods that look like dried leaves. I got all of them from Green Stuff World. I HIGHLY recommend their site! I just ordered two sets of metallic shifting paints that should prove quite interesting!



    Chameleon Skinks anyone?
