All of those are pretty darned cool.

Awesome stuff. Love the howdah.

Evolution run amok!

Ah, conversions the gifts that keep on giving.

Those are both delightfully terrifying. The howdah is an awesome touch.

The turtle bothers me. It's now incomplete, and the recursion cycle it could start might go on forever until there are too many awful beasts for The HeroesŪ to defeat. Just some spider parts to complete the turtle… a snake head and fabricated horns to finish the spider… that leftover snake body/tail would look great with a lion's head and some bat wings… that lion's body needs a bunch of small snake heads… those little leftover baby snake tails would make a great Cthulhu-style tentacle face on a mastodon body… the mastodon's head looks great on the bat body, but it needs some arms, let's see…

Actually, the turtle is currently complete (and shall show up in a WIP article another day), and did not spawn another chain of conversions. It ended up as a stub.

However, rest assured, I have about half a dozen leftover bits that will turn something else into leftover bits sooner or later …

Wonderful! I will have to steal the land hammerhead idea. I've been planning to do it with a therapod body.

Steal away! Here are a couple other similar ones …

The twin-trunked elephants are just wrong. I like them, but -- they're just wrong.

Maybe they'd work in Call of Cthulhu.

You know, Schleich makes a dunkleosteus you might enjoy link and Safari Ltd does a coelacanth .

My dunkie came with a different paintjob …


His pics have been sitting in my "sort pix" bin while I decide whether or not "how I based a big toy fish" is interesting enough to people to write up an article.

… oh … I found the coelacanth in a Safari Cryptozoology Toob! With a yeti and a bigfoot and a jackalope. I'll have to see if I can find that one at the craft store …

I've got to think about this. I saw a coelacanth years ago at a dinosaur museum, but didn't have any money that day, and couldn't figure out how it would interact with my Vikings. There are some real possibilities here.
