    And not @NIGHTBRINGER 's tophat.

    I snapped some screenshots from a close up vid I was watching, showing a slaan design other then Mazda who has a headdress.

    I figured this thread would be to brainstorm slaan hat ideas! It's the right of current lizardmen fasion!

    Which is one of a kind... and has a great back story too!

    The flat-plate-with-feathers look is pretty good, you could achieve that using the plate from a Bastiladon's head and some spare bits from Warriors/Knights banners.

    Maybe something like a skinned jaguar headdress? Or a diadem of crystal chunks floating just above their head

    You'd almost certainly need to craft them by hand, but the end result would be well worth it

    At the risk of starting a second Necroquake, I'd like to share the results of a brief foray into testing my theory;

    Absolutely no knife work was needed, just two spots of super glue and it fitted right on. I'm going to stick a little ball in the centre hole as a big gemstone, and maybe strengthen up the connection by packing the gap behind the headdress with green stuff, but I'm very happy with the result!

    Not a necroquake.


    Maybe I should host a slaan headgear contest?

    It's an expensive model and one that you only need one off, I have 3 would I buy another for a comp?

    Answer nope and it's hard to make something for a model that you can't test it on.

    We already have sculpting comps so I would not spread yourself too thin.
