  1. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include some Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************
  2. Happy Birthday @Tarsemina
  3. Thx, I'll be back in 8 days if all goes well. See you!
  4. One hour left before we leave for vacation destination. Have fun all! Don't burn the place down or start a glitterwar without me. And just for fun
  5. Link is broken now. But nevermind. As soon as the boat from that Dreadmere expansion hits retail ( and I hope it will be available in metal even sooner) I will recreate something like that. My Explorers need a landing site diorama /terrain piece. One day, when I have painted and built enough I will do a photosession with all the armies and terrain I've done. Adding more later of course. I doubt this will ever truly stop. I already have been thinking, that when the story is concluded, I might open a new thread ...the adventures of the survivors..working title else you know who is going to survive... They will then visit other continents and regions...
  6. The Dreadmere expansion now also has a raft. If that comes out in retail or in metal I will certainly get those. I need a landing site for my Conquistadores...
  7. Maybe useful
  8. @Unruly it is known that people who work nightshifts can get sleep troubles. That rythm isn't natural for us. I hope you will find a way to cope and sleep better.
  9. George, You can beat this!, Maybe not alone, get help if it lasts. no shame in that. We're here for you too, but we're not professionals. I advice you to talk to someone. We need you around buddy! as for now.
  10. Thx guys! When I get back I think I can finish him. Note to self..( in case I forget during the vacation) paint his scar..dried blood and highlight heavy warm grey)
  11. *** Rise Creatures of Chaos !!!!*** *** It's time for Mankind to fall !!!*** A while ago I purchased this one through the Bay of Evil. It is supposed to be the Forged Monkey's bust. I have some doubts though. It was shown as an original,but it came without the original packing. Also I had to remove a lot of flash and needed heavy greenstuffing.. Could be a knock off. However I will paint it.. Started prepping.
  12. Thx! Well, at least he is still walking... See you all in 8 days..
  13. I like that skintone!

  18. A little more story.. *************** Cpt. Aguilera Aguilera had been riding for days now. His Undead mount showed no signs of fatigue. The Captain had disguised himself with dried blood and goo to fool the other Undead they encountered every now and then. It seemed to work, they had not bothered him. He still didn't know where he was. Would he ever get out of this place? He longed to be back on his ship, drinking rum in his cabin, having a good dinner. Shaking his head, he rode further. First he needed to find out where he was. If only he had his instruments with him, he could have calculated his position. Would he ever make it back? His undead horse kept walking. Aguilera was a bit surprised to notice that he wasn't hungry or thirsty. Yet, he had travelled for days now. Night fell, and still he wasn't even tired. For a moment he worried about it. Was this some kind of magic? Or could it be that he was mistaken about the time? Maybe he hadn't been travelling that long? His horse walked on, it seemed to know where it went, so he let it. Maybe it would bring him back to the edge of the jungle. Aguilera wondered, he didn't feel tired at all. Slightly worried again he steered his horse towards a small black pool. He dismounted. Eventhough he didn't feel thirsty he knew he should drink. Kneeling down at the pool of dark water he looked at it. The Moon lit the surface and he looked at his reflection. He cried out in fear and jumped back. Frightened he crawled back to the pool. He looked again at his reflection. Two black eyes stared back at him. His skin was tight and wrinkled, a large wound revealed part of his skull and teeth. Dead! He was Dead! *********************************
  19. More work after my vacation see you all in about 8 days.. For now I leave you with a few little stories. ************* Rosetta and the Pirates. James kept close to Rosetta, he still tried to protect her, she thought, a little late for that.. Rosetta glanced at Bonita, she was a giant now and half snake. How did that happen? She acted like she hated her, Rosetta wondered, could she still be angry from that one punch? Come on! She sank my ship! The Transmuthor led the way, they moved very fast through the jungle now. Behind them the other mutants, if that's what they are, Rosetta thought. Suddenly Old Ned grabbed his chest, and fell down. His parrot screeched and flew away. NEDD!!! James shouted and ran to his friend. Bonita, grabbed him by his arm and lifted him up. No time to waste! She said. If he's dead, he's dead! James struggled to no avail, Rosetta looked at Nedd, face down in the mud. She cried as her captors pushed her forward. MOVE!!! Bonita shouted. James looked at Nedd once more, heart attack? A stroke? He felt miserable to leave his old friend behind, but he had no choice. The Transmuthor turned around, Hurry now! The King is waiting. Too bad about your old friend, but at least now we can move faster! Hurry hurry!! A few moments later they were out of sight. Old Nedd slowly lifted his head from the mud. His parrot returned to him, Nedd's Dead! Nedd's Dead!!! it shouted. Old Nedd petted the parrot, not yet, little friend, not yet. But it is better that they think that! Now, let's be quiet and follow them from a distance. We'll figure something out! ***************************************** SHE She had found an oasis. Water and trees. A little rest wouldn't hurt, she thought. She wondered if that little gerbil would ever return and if it would bring back more. The insects and lower creatures had been easier to control, she thought. Maybe she could find some of those soon. But for now...what was keeping that little rodent? A faint sound in the bushes, she turned around and there it was. The little gerbil emerged from the bushes and looked at her. She reached out with her mind to contact it, but this time it didn't react. Surprised, she looked at the little rodent, it felt like there was a barrier between them, she couldn't reach it. Yet, it had returned. Why? Suddenly two bigger ceatures jumped from the bushes. These looked like strange dogs, black with red eyes. They reminded her a bit of her own realm. She reached out again to try to contact these hellish looking dogs. BACK OFF!!! Grabbing her head, she stumbled backwards. That hurt! Someone shouted at her in her head! She tried again. NO! THESE ARE MINE!!! The voice shouted at her. She calmed herself, and tried to respond. Telepathically she answered. So, who are you? FOLLOW MY HOUNDS AND FIND OUT!!! Intrigued she looked at the demonic dogs, at closer inspection they looked more like statues come alive. That was no fur, looked more like black stone. The dogs turned their backs at her and started walking. Ok! She thought, let's do this! She followed the dogs. Where would they lead her? She was curious to find out who was behind this. ********************************
