Wow! Way to make an ugly kit look great! Both conversion and paintwork is outstanding. Loving the effect you got with the wings and also his helmet.

Very impressive!  :eusa_clap: I don't want to be the little war priest ... he must have a sense of inferiority against the monsters! :icon_mrgreen:
Especially I like the colours on the wings of the dragon - great work! :eusa_clap:

That is positively beautiful. To echo everyone who ever sees this, I love the wings!

What kit is that? The Chimera?

Age of Si..%!// sorry, I can't pronounce that... Is Archaon Everchosen from that game. I put off his three daemonic heads, modelled two necks with green stuff and then added two dragon heads from Dark Elf dragon kit. I also changed the rider, added a banner and the chaos symbol on the pectoral.

More steel and gunpowder around here... an Empire War Wagon!

I replaced the original engineers with other minis (plastic handgunners + outriders heads), while the horses have been replaced from the Luminark / Huracanum ones. The base had to be a little bigger than the usual chariot one, then we used here the Screaming Bell base as the one that fit it better.

As always you have some more pics and text on the blog, including a review of the origin and possible inspiration of the mini. :::cheers:::

War wagons are so awesome, and this one certainly looks good. I like the bristling with repeater guns look you went for, planning the same for my own. If you need to get rid of the old crewmen, shoot me a PM :)

How many people are involved in this mastery?
Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

We are 7 players, 3 for Team Kul and 4 for Team Magnus (2 Empire players, a dwarf and an elf). But only two of us are registered in this forum, Drakenhof, captain of Team Magnus, and myself. In my case, although will play with Chaos, I painted both chaos and Empire.

Is there any background to indicate that Asavar Kul should be a giant dragon ogre type or is it just "rule of cool"? From what I have read about him, he seems to have been a "normal" human

Rule of cool I think. He was a "normal" Kurgan, and on the artworks he is usually depicted, as being on foot.

Shouldn't that be:
