Prototyping a new unit for the mythos-army. Planning on making multiple copies of them physically. Torso/face are placeholders.

I think the body might be looking a little too wide with real bricks.

Yeah, that's a compromise I'll just have to live with at this small scale. The plates are necessary to cover up the internals and make it look more organic on the whole.

What if you use a 2x3 brick, attach the tail at the end, and use peg-legs with studs for the legs?

Not much different I'd think! I don't really like the looks in hindsight, feels too petite.

Looks good to me, definitely good part usage here. Does Lego make those Unikitty tails in black, or is that just a LDD thing?

Nope, not yet at least. The best pick is dark gray right now, but I'm keeping fingers crossed!

I thought they were tan too? You could do brown body with tan hair and tail?

Oh sure, that's not outruled yet either. For the sake of variance I could see myself going for three different colorschemes in total.

My take on the centaur based on this. Thoughts?

Maybe some kind of bricks could cover up the side/front part that shows where the leg connects to the bars.
