Xander's Stag-Taurus ConversionXander 05-18-2007





Work in progress.  Still have to add more GS, make a fancy base, etc.  Just thought I'd snap some pics before work today! CDO is back baby, I bought this stag to celebrate it!

Comments welcome, but I need it done by Sunday. Happy

That is awesome mate! I wish I could convert like that.Takes Hat off

How big is the stag? I'm still planning on using it for a Bull Centaur lord, but I haven't seen one in my local stockists.

The Stag is just slightly taller than the Earthshaker. I use the Stag as my Taurus but he has Tyranid Gargoyle wings.

I think you should shave the claves of its legs (oh god, calves of a bull...), Do something with the fur, even if it's just painting it as fire/smoke. Maybe (MAYBE) put a ring in its nose. What did you use for the horns?

The horns are from the Chaos Warrior Banner, and the wings are from an old Cockatrice model. I will be adding some more green stuff and a mount tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the comments guys.

The thighs will definitely need some upgrading with GS. For a bull, the stag model is a bit too slender. Add some muscle mass here and there - it will make the whole model a lot more impressive!

Those wings fit nicely, BTW. What model do you intend to use for the rider?

RE: Xander's Stag-Taurus ConversionAGPO 05-19-2007

Really awesome model! I personally think the fur looks pretty good, and the model certainly looks a lot more 7th edition (i.e. a proper monster and not just a funny cow with wings) It has a kind of Daemon Bull look about it. Don't forget also that the flesh hounds have all that fur around their necks, but none on the rest of them, and that looks fine. I also think the legs look pretty good, infact the only thing I would change is to add a rider![/align]

Got an idea for that model you've always wanted to make, but couldn't find the means to convert it? Seen that bit of artwork and thought 'That would be an awesome model'? Give Warplock a PM, any sculpting/converting request considered Wink

Funny, I had gotten on to ask if you had any updates. I am thinking of trying a similar conversion (inspired by you of course).

jester, it depends upon your theme to be honest. Mr. Xander, when is this beautiful beast going to get a new rider?

I'd be honoured if you did just that, as it was not my own idea to begin with, and that's what these forums are for: sharing! Happy

RE: Xander's Stag-Taurus ConversionLifer 09-06-2008

That is one nice taurus. Wondering if i should make mine based on the stag or try to build it from the scratch.This would be easier and more probable to become decent tahn the scratchbuilt. Well, I'll decide after i've finished my GH entry Happy
