Do you really want to know what I think. All right lets break it down.
Saurus warriors and skinks: Very nice. Origianally thought it need more done on the bases but now noticed how you have them and looks good.
Temple Guard: Very small unit but looks good none the less. Definitly need to add more.
Slann: You really converted this dude up. I’d of personally not have had it take up an extra 8 temple guard spaces but thats just me. Though I must say I love how you have the saurus warriors carring him around. Will be attempting something like that for mine (when ever I get to it).
Engine of the gods: HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP! I can only say that looks sweat…and BIG.
Terradons: Of to a good start.
So all around every thing gets an A+. So what else do you have planned besides the terradons and additional temple guard? Saurus cav, more stegadons, jungle swarms, carnosaur?
Meh, I was expecting more. Still, you have more Saurus’ painted than I do… Well, close to it anyway. I hate painting those guys. I like the paintjob on the terradons, simple yet effective. Where’s all your sculpted heroes?
GRNDL: The terradons aint painted yet mate…they have only just started to be sculpted!
Kera: Why do you need to stalk me? You should come over, and we can drink rum and whip slaves!
Hazkar/WoodenPickles: The dino is just about scratch built, i used a stegadon head though…could we see that as cheating? And the howda is made from alaod of stuff i pilliaged from a Konversion Klinic at GW HQ…shhhh

Wow that is amazing, The legs, stomach and tail are all just beautiful did you sculpt th espikes on the back of his neck as well. I think I'll join kera in stalking you.
Well guys, im afraid this is a model-less update ducks barrage of rotten fruit, shoes and empty beer cans
I had my first ever game with my army, only 500pts, but a game all the same!
My list was:
Saurus Scar Veteran - LA - Shield =92pts
17 Saurus Warriors - FC- Spears = 234pts
10 Skink Skirmishers = 70pts
3 Terradon Riders - Brave = 90pts
TOTAL = 494 pts
I was playing against one of the blue-shirts who work in my local GW, he was playing dwarves, with a unit of shield/HW warriors, an organ gun, a load of handgunners and a thane.
Needless to say ladies and gentlemen, this guy must have the WORST dice-luck i have ever seen…and i think it was this, and not my tactically amazing maneuvers that won the day His organ gun took out 3 skinks before it misfired, and then having its crew killed by the angry surviors! I would draw up aload of diagrams to show how the game progressed…but i really cannot be bother for such a short game, needless to say i got quite a few rear charges with my Terradons, and only suffered minor casualties due to fire from the handgunners. All his models were killed at the end of the game, with only the loss of 5 skinks, 5 saurus and 2 terradons, all from shooting!
The lessons i learnt from this short skirmish:
1. Big blocks of saurus are GOOD, especially with a potential 20 attacks on the defend using spears
2. Terradons are good for out-maneurvering clunky dwarves, but i suffered heavily from fire from the handgunners, the last rider almost fleeing the board, so bigger units maybe, or maybe even another unit of 3
Anyway, onto my next little item…
Whilst attempting to do my French homework, like any good artist my mind wanders (my teachers call it ‘daydreaming’, i call it ‘creative-mind expansion’ ;))…and i was thinking about my General. As much as i love my Fat Frog…i thought maybe in some lists i would want some BITE. So obviously an Old Blood on a Carnie…but me being Warplock…i wasnt content with the out-of-the-box model…
Then i thought, i want my army to be as colourful as possible, with lots of opportunities to use colours not usually seen in the Warhammer World. I also like feathers, they are a way to bring colour to said models, and i try to put them on as many models as i can,hence the reason for doing the Terradons. And then my friends, that blessed light known to all as inspiration dawned…, using the nearest bit of paper i could find, which happened to be on the back of my homework sheet, i quickly scribbled down my idea…
I present to you, the Coatlsaur!
This bad boy is going to be based on the metal carnosaur, with quite a few modifications…i know i should be working on the bulk of my army…but when an idea like this pops up, you just cannot put it aside!
