    Hell yeah, couldn’t decide on something ‘new’ so thought on it a bit and decided it made sense to go double whammy on the big guns :D
    There will be a suitably decent skink priest controlling said gems.
    Hmm it’s might be a bit too big to fit the basti, but I’ve never tried (also it’s well expensive) lol - if you do it though please do share :)

    Go BIG or go home, eh? :) Yes, I know, but I've also seen a conversion somewhere where they used the Leviadon kit and attached legs instead of flippers and used it as a Bastiladon. Well see if I ever get to that point! XD

    This is similar to an idea I had for using Melusai as Kroxigor conversions - glad to see that it works! :)

    (Even if you did beat me to it ;))

    Haha got to be fast in the converting game ;D

    But yeah they work really well - the snake tails may be a bit small for kroxigor (I had to shave off a lot of guard torso to get them to fit)

    But add a little green stuff and I reckon you could have some really nice kroxigor snakes :D
    ‘That actually sounds pretty good’

    Sadly ran out of time today, but here is the wip Bastiladon conversion.
    To be added;
    -Green stuff his throat (as there is a large gap)
    -Green stuff skink priests hand (casting a ball of light) - you know just incase it’s a rainy day and the solar engine doesn’t work as well as intended.
    -Clean up the platform and add some small details.
    -Add base details - vines, plants, debris etc.
    -Add 4x skink spearmen around the base (as I seem to have run out of room on the big guy (and don’t want to busy him up too much - else I won’t be able to make his scale patterns all pretty - and that would be a sad waste of such good scales.

    Oh, SNAP! He looks like he's packing Sidewinder Missiles! And is that a Carnosaur head? Nice! I like the horns on either side of the head!

    Yes sir it is a carno head - thought weirdly it looked more turtle like than the original - Add the trogs long forked tongue and a few of its sensory spine things and boom - a pretty nice gobble pot of a decent basti head and yes ofcourse he needed to be packing :D
    Can’t just have him plodding about with just one big ass gem of death :D

    The head definitely gives the Bastiladon a dramatically different look!

    ...I wonder if a Troglodon head could look even cooler, a lot of turtles have somewhat long necks....

    I did put my spare trog head on first thinking the same thing - but it was just too long (the basti has reeeealy short front legs - which I was going to extend but decided against :)

    A bit worried my skink priest looks like he’s trying to shoot hoops from the back of a basti :S

    ;D it’s ok I wanted it to look like he was looking up to the sky and calling down the light (hopefully it’ll look ok when I’m done)

    Painting the basti as we speak

    Why shouldn't he/she be shooting mad hoops? Doesn't everyone know Skinks are insanely good at basketball? XD

    Great job!
