Can anyone think of how to make the lizards look more enslaved/CD-ized? I’m currently thinking tattoos to mark them as properly but can’t think of much else. Might try weapon swaps. Does anyone know if you can get those sprues of generic, all purpose shields from GW anymore?
I should think you can get them, but it’s about £2 a sprue, which is uber expensive, in my opinion. Even by the standards of GW. I think if you take chips out of their spines, use dulled colours for their skin to show emaciation, do weapon swaps, carve brands into them (whether they were burnt in or carved) and paint tattoos on. Maybe some of them, especially big ones (kroxigor, maybe saurus) have their bracelets chained together.
I mentioned the smaller ballista. These should be easily made from sprues and spears (for curved bow parts, use the the curves of the sprues), which will save you some money. But, the smaller scale BTs is exactly what I meant. Easier to get through jungles if need be.
I think that machine would be great, but it may require SOME fuel and so I’d say it is more for deforestation to allow the building of a fortification.
Wood isn’t the best fuel and I did think of that, but as to the souls, they would want to catch a spawning pool, methinks. Otherwise, it is likely to run out a little too quickly and they may wish to use slaves for other tasks… Maybe once the slave is past its sell-by date…
That’s what I’m thinking, I’m hunting down the old shields. I’m thinking of maybe making the lizards worship Hashut (not in the way that CDs worship him, but have them pray to bronze bull-totems and the like). They are described as lizards who have completely forgotten their civilisation, can’t see why that shouldn’t include the Old Ones.
Don’t waste the oportunity to give you general a Carnosaur. You could turn a death rocket into a flame thrower to fight the vegetation. And a lot of greenskins. If you like spider riders, they would fit nicely.
I have a WD with a conversion article about the norse colonie of skeggi. That could be a good inspiration.
