    Did some work on unfinished projects today.

    Inspired by @Lord-Marcus 's May Monster Mash I am going to see if I can finish my carnosaur this month.

    Spent today mostly doing the gold and detail work, still need to finish a bit more then I can assemble him.

    Also @Kalokagathia inspired me back onto another project... did some major work on my standard bearer, he is nearly done as well!

    My standard bearer is complete, and my carnosaur will be right behind him.

    My saurus oldblood on his carnosaur are complete!

    Right Side view:

    The big man himself, Sijak K'ak, known to the warmbloods as Smoke Frog:

    warden201805_carnosaur smoke frog left side 1.jpg
    His skull shoulder pad needs a bit more work :meh:, as do his shrunken heads, but he is assembled finally!

    I tried a little jade work on his weapon this time too, kinda worked...

    His lore entry, dredged up from my army fluff thread:

    Glyph Smoke Frog.png
    To the warm-bloods he is known as “Smoke Frog,” for his name glyph appears to be the head of a frog, on its side, wreathed in smoke. However to the Lizardmen he is referred to as “Fire is Born,” for he was spawned just as the ancient empire of the Lizardmen erupted in the flames of war. Sijak K’ak was spawned during the final calm directly before the Great Catastophe, and has served Jatzom Kuh as his general and commander in the field ever since. As a young saurus war-chief, he witnessed the fall of Mutal as he retreated from the city limits, commanding the rear-guard column of the escaping Slann. Through the centuries his fellow saurus spawn-kin were whittled away until only he now remains. Sijak K’ak has achieved many victories alongside the Jade Host against the would-be intruders of the jungles, including the rat-spawn and the vile elven slavers of the northern continent. However, despite his great tactical intellect, on the battlefield he is less of a leader to his forces and more of a giant, brutal killing machine. This is especially true in recent years, as he now rarely rides into battle on anything less than the most savage carnosaurs raised by the skinks of the Beast Caste in the pens and stables of Mutal. His current mount is named Tajal, meaning “Torch,” aptly named for such an engine of destruction.


    ...As far as the model himself goes, the saurus rider is magnetized so he can be removed from his mount, just in case he was killed before the carnosaur itself went down. Eventually I will make the rider his own ground base so he can run with the infantry (though his giant tail will make that difficult in a ranked formation).

    The back banners are also removable (magnetized). The elaborate back banner will be used whenever he is run as an Oldblood, but if I go with the cheaper Scar Veteran option then the little stone-nub will take its place.

    Here the model is running as a scar-vet (no large back banner):

    warden201805_carnosaur right side scar vet 1.jpg

    And here are all the separate pieces!

    I should mention that the inspiration for this conversion came from @Joseph T Chidzey and his gloriously converted purple carnosaur.

    Some family photos!

    Smoke Frog and the Army Battle Standard Bearer:

    warden201805_standard bearer and carnosaur.jpg

    I am planning to name the standard bearer and his eventual twin (a Gor-Rok counts-as) after the hero twins of Mayan mythology, he doesn't get a name until the next model is finished.

    Carnosaur and the Stegadon:

    warden201805_carnosaur and stegadon.jpg

    The not-t-rex makes the stegadon look tiny!


    And here are all the monstrous dinosaurs of the Jade Host!
