Lizardmen part 2: Saurus

Finally got around to posting these: Saurus warriors with Spears:

I added a unit filler in the middle to get more out of the unit.

Temple Guard with Slann:

Saurus Cold One Cavalry:

The model in the front can be used as a mounted Old Blood or Scar Veteran.

Belakor & more

I converted a plastic Belakor using a Vampire Count Varghiest and some Daemon Prince bitz:

Great Unclean One with Nurglings:

I decided to keep the diseased rat theme for my Nurglings.

Beasts of Nurgle/Plague Drones:

I oringinally converted these to be Beasts of Nurgle, but with 7th ed allowing the summoning of certain Daemon units, they can be used as Drones as well. Their bases are magnetized to be used in Fantasy as well.

Tzeentch Herald & Blue Horrors:

WraithKnights, Revenant, Sslyth & more


The arms are magnetized to swap out the options. I also used smaller guns for the Heavy Wraithcannons, since they have the same profile as a regular Wraithcannon with the range of a Brightlance. I don't like how big the actual weapons are (plus I needed them for the conversions below). I also modeled the Suncannon barrel into the Glaive.

Mounted Wraith "Knights"
Somewhere online, I saw a Wraithlord riding a Vyper as a Jetbike and had to do some of my own. Since my Eldar & Dark Eldar are models as Corsairs/Saim-hann, these Wraith "Knights" were right up my alley.

The increased mass of the Vyper jetbike can represent the extra wounds & jump MC status (too heavy to be an actual jetbike), the Ghostglaive represents the extra attack & strength, and the huge underslung Heavy Wraithcannon with mini-scope represents 2 Heavy Wraithcannons.

UPDATE: This edition they have been updated with larger wing fins for use as Hemlock Wraithfighters. I think it's the best fit for them. I also updated their paintjob to better suit my current scheme

But they are still magnetized for use as WraithKnights. Afterall, that was what they were originally converted for. I like the idea of them as Skathach WKs

I converted this years ago as a Corsair Revenant Titan.

With the release of the 7th ed. Dark Eldar codex, I decided to ditch all 'Coven' units and go back to the core of my Corsiar 'mercenary' feel. So I coverted some SSlyth:

I used Wraithguard torsos, arms & guns ontop of Reaper Minis Medusae bodies, plus Lizardman heads. I modeled them to be used are Sslyth or count-as Wraithguard, using the back story of reptilian mercenaries that accompany the Phoenix Corsairs.

Vauls Support Battery made from Necron Destroyer bodies and other spare bitz I had:

Wraith construct Tau allies

I have always loved the aesthetics of the Eldar Wraithlords & Wraithgaurd, but their limited mobility and range have been a deterrent for me to field them competitively. I recently decided to build some models and convert them to be used as Tau allies for my Eldar army.

The Fire Warriors (or 'Wraith Drones') are made from Necron warriors & greenstuff.

Iridium armoured Commander:

I used a Wraithlord and simply added a Jet-pack and some "missile pods".

Crisis Suits:

I used Wraithgaurd, again with Jet-packs & "missile pods". The center model has the Command & Control nod and Multi-Spectrum Sensor Suite.


Used the same starting point as the Crisis suits, I added some extra armour plates and Typhoon missile launchers. I thought about using a different weapon for the Smart missiles, but since the actual Tau models use the same design for Smart missiles & Missile pods, I thought they looked fine.

LotR: Misc

The first models I even painted were Lord of the Rings. I don't own most of the armies I used to collect, but I did keep a few examples for sentimental reasons:

The Fellowshipp of the Ring:

High Elves:


Rohan w/ Royal Guard:

Isengard Uruk-hai:

Mordor Orcs:

The Balrog:

LotR: Moria Goblin army

Lord of the Rings was the first GW game I ever played. I finally started digging through my old stuff and realized that I need to get some pics up here:

Moria Goblin Army:

Goblin Captains (1 is Durburz), Shamans, Prowlers & Drum:


Cave Trollss:

Warg Riders & Warg Chieftain:

LotR: Dwarves

I have had Lord of the Rings models for years now, but I finally got around to taking photos.

Dwarf Army:

Dwarf King (Gimli model), Captain and Banners:

Dwarf Warriors:

Iron Guard, Khazad Guard & Vault Wardens:

Lizardmen part 1

I haven't played Lizardmen in a few years, but with the new book out, I felt it was time to restart my Lizardmen (which is the only army I've ever regretted selling). Just to get things started, here is my first completed minis:

The Slann is completely scratch-built. I made the Palanquin out of Styrofoam pieces then added some Lizardmen bitz. The Slann is all greenstuff, except for his waving hand (which is a Chaos Spawn hand) and the dangling bits on his chest, lip and ...ears.

Skink Priest & Saurus Lord on Cold One:

The Skink Priest next to him is converted using a Kroot body with Lizardmen bitz. The tail and mask are greenstuff. The Saurus Character is just a Cold One Cavalry model with some extra bits and the Bloodletter head from a Grey Knight set.

Skink paint schemes:

Almost all my Lizardmen are going to be painted like real reptiles and amphibians.

Skink/Kroxigor unit:

Most of the Skinks are the old tiny models because they rank-up better. The Krox are plastic dino bodies with greenstuff arms and Cold One heads. I modeled them and the "unit-filler" to be wading through a small pond. The Krox are painted like crocodiles


I converted these from Tyranid Gargoyles & Saurus bitz. The bloat toads I made out of greenstuff. I painted them to look like a winged lizard I found on google.

Salamander Hunting packs:

I again used plastic dinos and Saurus bitz. I modeled them to be wading through water and painted them like Fire-bellied Newts and their handlers like Fire-bellied Toads.

Saurur & Temple Guard command groups:

All my Saurus will be painted like Iguanas, with the Temple Guard being a little paler. Part 2 will have all my Saurus units finished.
