Cult what do you think of the baby manticore wings, I think they make the baby less real, maybe swap for the ones I used on my harpies?

I agree on Manti-nesting. I find the baby hard to see from the pics, but the idea of leftover victims is what sells it for me. Great idea.

Just about to watch it - I think they have to be the best dragons I have seen in a tv/movie - they look very life like (sometimes they tend to always look poxy)

Here he is! As BSB he should ofcourse be the one carrying the Roman Eagle to inspire its troops. In the nest are lots of eaten body parts, skulls and some other small scavengers joining the feast. I was considering a cow brought by mama Manticore, but think there will be enough to look at already when painted.

Thanks LD - It's amazing how those images get around the web - glad you take some inspiration from it.

That is my conversion of Hellebron riding a manticore - I might get her finished one day :D

By the way that last episode of GoT was a cracker - how cool was that dragon - huge inspiration has got me all fired up again now.

Thank you Sabious! Yes I agree Cult, it will make playing with my list even more epic because it made it easier for me visualize what is happening in that fantasy world we simulate with our models, terrain and rules.

NOTE to painting red: Fire red vallejo model air, washen with agrax, then fire red again and highlighting with little bits on white in it.

I will field Oktober tournament with this list:

Prince, Great Weapon, Charm of Cursed Iron, Lucky Shield, Dragon - 840 (half painted)
Captain, Cult of Nabh, BSB, Heavy Armour, Shield, Great Weapon, Midnight Cloak, Manticore - 537 (not painted)
Captain, Heavy Armour, Hardened Shield, Flaming Lance, Crown of Scorn, Manticore - 415 (not modelled yet)

5 Raven Cloaks, Paired Weapons - 180 (painted)
19 Corsairs, FC, Handbows, Banner of speed - 488 (not painted)
15 Corsairs (Marines), Handbows, Musician - 310 (not painted)

8 Dark Raiders, Champion, RXB - 338 (painted)
5 Dread Knights - 260 (painted)

5 Dread Knights, Standard - 260 (not painted)
5 Harpies - 130 (painted)
1 Dread Reaper - 180 (painted)
1 Dread Reaper - 180 (painted)
1 Kraken - 360 (painted)

Total: 4498

I still need to finish the Dragon, Manticore BSB, Manticore, 5 Knights, 15 Marines and 19 Corsairs, so that will need some planning and work.

The planning is
August: Manticore BSB, 15 Marines, 5 Knights
September: 19 Corsairs, Dragon
Oktober, Manticore

This is how the army looks now

Unit filler for 15 Marines

I would also like to hear your opinion about the colour scheme on the Manticore. I am considering this effect again

I always think of these large monsters as a great opportunity to introduce different colours into the army.

So often you can get stuck with painting a metal colour, gold trim, solid base colour for the army theme (like a blue or a red) and when your army units are on the table they all look the same.

Have you thought about doing some brown's and oranges for the Manticore (like a tiger) it could make the model pop a bit more and add some flair to the army rather then the monochrome colours you are considering. (I do like the example you have shown)

Just a thought

The first Corsair! This one is part of the Druchii Marines, the elite bodyguard of the Admiral. When I gave this Corsair that big crossbow, the image of a modern day marine came to my head (M16 instead of crossbow) and the idea was born. I made 10 more of these guys, and have 20 old metal Corsairs.

I was too fast to wash has not dried on the armour, and I can definately improve the inside of the sea dragon cloaks on my next models.

Some progress on the Corsairs, especially the scales on the cloaks. Plan is to first paint all the scales so the units already have this look, and then complete them in layers. Especially on the old Corsairs cloaks it gives a special effect, I am curious how a full unit will look like from the back.
