Xander's Lammasu Conversion - Raging Heroes + GW ManticoreXander 01-04-2013

Hi everyone!

It's been so long since I've posted any pics here, but after I finally finished my last University course, I had some time to do some modelling!

I wanted to make a very monstrous Lammasu with a looming, powerful presence. I also wanted him to be able to be a stand alone, unmounted character, like a Greater Daemon or something.

So here are my WIP pics. The wings are not attached yet, they are just kind of sitting there for now.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!

It's a great start but the base looks double what it should be.  I think you need to get creative to shrink its' footprint back to a legal size.

A mount worthy of a Sorcerer-Prophet!

RE: Xander's Lammasu Conversion - Raging Heroes + GW ManticoreXander 01-05-2013

@Grimbold: I am not concerned with the base size. More and more monster mounts are moving towards this base size anyhow. Plus, I wanted more space for him to prowl. I wonder what sort of clever ideas I could come up with for a really unique sorcerer mount...

@Skink: Cheers! Happy

That is hot beyond description.  Thanks for the pictures!  I'm not bothered by the large base size, as its typically the smaller bases that get to be advantageous.

What I like the most about it is the position of the forelegs and shoulders combined with the flow of its tail. These elements really give the model a lot of movement and bring the Lammasu alive! He's not just standing there, he looks like he's ready to jump or to cast a spell!

Nice! Why not making him even bulkier and use him as a destroyer? That would be pretty cool.....

I've saw a conversion a few weeks back that I think you might find interesting.  I forgot to keep the original link (it was probably warseer, dakka or maybe here), but here is is

Unless you want him to be surfing, it will obviously be the legs that are the limiting factor to this conversion.  But I guess you could try buying Drazhoath from someone and stick it on, for the easiest option.

A magnet will be essential.

I am glad like the movement! The manticore body is so badly positioned, it was really hard making it work the way I wanted!

I'll definitely be using magnets, that's for sure. Happy

Cool find with that conversion! I found a conversion after I made mine, that's also very similar to my own:

Thanks Kera. Happy The bits are from the GW Manticore mostly and the Raging Heroes Shedu head. The tail is from the Ogre Stonehorn, and the basing elements are from the GW terrain stuff.

He looks pretty sweet so far.  I like how you Lammasu has a more proportioned body that the GW one that looked squished together.

Wow, what awesome pose, this site was started and based around such creativity - cheers for that btw mate - this is looking really great indeed.

Do you think you'll paint it in the ever popular red or go a little different?
