David Attenborough's Voice Over:
Nature can be cruel and especially so in the Jungle and Swamps of the Lost World.
Huge predators roam this place so a smaller creature needs to be smart to survive.
Here we can see the Common Swamp Crocodile, the poor creature would stand no chance when a T-Rex or a Spinosaurus would spot it.
So it adapted to it's environment.
It's behaviour reminds me a bit of that of the Hermit Crab, in a similar fashion this little crocodile finds himself a piece of rotten wood, preferably a treetrunk and sticks it's head in it.
Then it rolls around in the fertile soil so mushrooms, grass and flowers will grow on it's hide.
This way it will be invisible to the larger predators.
Unfortunately, as we can see here, that tactic proves futile against the Amazone Warrior who is in dire need of a new purse.
#54: Dire Crocodile
"The Enormous Crocodile grinned, showing hundreds of sharp white teeth. "For my lunch today," he said, "I would like a nice juicy little child."
-Roald Dahl, The Enormous Crocodile
125x50mm 3D-printed base.
“Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first.”
- Steve Irwin

Sobek was a complex crocodile god of the ancient Egyptians. He was god of fertility, wild sexytimes and strength, and also a protector against the ravages of the river Nile and its inhabitants.
The khopesh was a kind of ancient Egyptian sword evolved from a battle axe. The one on this sculpt is a little thicker and more swordlike than most of the ones I've seen, which makes it sturdier on a miniatures scale.
The figure is Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, sculpt by Bob Ridolfi. I didn't make a WIP thread.
I was halfway done with him before I realized that he was supposed to be a stone statue with cracks and chips in the stone. Maybe another time I will paint a version of him like that, but in this case I overlooked the texture and painted him with fairly realistic crocodile and corroded bronze colors.
And because I like to play around with photography and backgrounds:
