That's awesome. I actually managed to get my second giant troll yesterday, so I'm trying to figure out what I'll use them both for.

lol thats friggin sweet! The iron mask really suits him well. Funny how you used a wood basket for a shield, very crude and orcish is the way to go for him. 5/5 for you, keep up the great work!

thanks :)

shaeph you cheated and jumped ahead!

the magic maidens from arabay:


the purple sheilds are a part i got off briklink. as soon as i saw the purpley sparkley transparent goodness i instantly thought magic sheilds. they are armed with purple flames currently but id love some lightsaber hilts to make them a bit more of a solid weapon.
the heads are some cheap zam wessil starwars heads i got off ebay, one side has the sweet looking veil covering everything but thier eyes and the other is a but ugly alien.

the bucket sheild was a tough one, i figured pretty much all shields are in fact just painted wood anyways. love a more metalic or grey brick built one.

the polearm is pretty detailed, its made up of the large ornate pike, a rusty chain, metalic hound head detail from a kk2 bridge, metalic teeth and two skeleton scimitars attatched to the hounds eye sockets.

heres some skeleton spider centaurs:


and the fire mage:


she's a variation on the magical maidens.

i have more on the hardrive...   a steamtank perhaps?

I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

yes indeed. I've never seen spy-clops up close but i saw the basic design and thought the skeleton tower bone cage would be a great source of parts to make a pair of undead versions.

heres my steam powered war machine. dwarven advanced technology combined with the crownies need for better ability to grind skeletons into dust...

I finally found some of the orc impulse sets here in Australia this week, and being inspired by all manner of fantasy ideas i also bought up 4 of the police impulse sets also.

A battle wagon and a dwarf mine defender was also added to the stash and tonight i built an orc wolf chariot. I'll get pics up here as soon as possible.
