OK, this time I wanted to do something a little different so after quite a dose of fantasy, I thought I could go back to the familiar shores of 40k and confrontation.
Since I had been challenged on the Scale Creep to do a dragon, I thought this would be the time to do something refreshing. I've been meaning to use this dinosaur for 40k for a while now and until recently, I didn't really know what to use him as.
Here's a little picture of how I had to break parts (finally broke the left arm as well as you can guess), just cut every joint of the legs to pin and reposition as well as I could.
The rider used to stand a bit better on the mount but the pin going through his crotch broke and I never could fix that, now he has to sit a bit more on the back which doesn't look as good although the difference is minimal.
You can note on the picture above how damaged the dino is and I don't know if it's leardot or anything but the metal has surely suffered from heavy oxydation that has left scars all over the model. I've tried to remove as much where needed but the painting was exactly enjoyable on the dino for this reason.
