It made so much sense I created a little backstory. So now they are firmly rooted on Medivo it seems, and affiliated with Solek.

Update

So I managed to scrounge up parts for another dinosaur. Chant with me: "Solek! Solek! (ey äy ftagn!)"
I was very much inspired by Zahrus fantastic Enigma of Sol in trying to craft a better look for this one.

Image

It features an elevated platform for archers, and a large backmounted catapult for hurling canisters of explosive fire at the enemies of Solek.

Side view

Image

The dinosaurs back rear end ass is protected by extra plating and we can see the two engineers/gunners who load, aim and fire the catapult.

Image

The firebombs are stored somewhat unprotected, but then again inventory space is scarce in a ride like this. To avoid painful accidents (though hilarious), it's best to fire them all at the enemy before anyone is close enough to throw in a torch or anything similarly disrupting.

Image

The warbeasts of King Kroc! Now to be honest, I'm not as fond of this new one as I am of King Krocs personal ride. Ofcourse this is due to a lack of skulls and spikes, but I somehow thought I could pull off a more polished look. Not so. Is it just me, or what do you say? Is it the general shaping, should I have the platform in the back or at the sides and the catapult mor to the front for a better more menacing look?

A lot more to take into account than most of the builds. Overall great, really cohesive force. The points I would have deducted for using the Prince of Persia bolt thrower are more than made up for by the extra bits like the hut and swamp scenery.

Well spotted, I bow to your superior lego recognition. Actually, I picked it from the shelf to arrange a siege-unit, and it looked pretty ok so I kept it. Also, I was lazy. Now that my secret has been found out, I guess I have to do something about that.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with using official Lego builds in your army. Don't let me noticing it change your mind.

Also the only reason I recognized it is because I own the set and remember building it. :P
