Sculpt is Lord of the Print’s Mushroom King at 70% scale. Pretty terrible print on my part, had to replace his right leg and resculpt his knee, but makes for an imposing lad that matches my Great Chieftain myconid. Way cooler than a Forest Warden deserves but only so many large heroes in the Herd!
I really like the fantasy look of it. Model train trees have been given to my nephew who has an actual model train. It’s quite a bit of work to be done to redo the other woods and terrain pieces, but it’s fun.
I also did a few of the rocks:
Won’t paint this for a while, but had the models sitting in the box since last year now and wanted to know if my idea would even work … and well, as a proof of concept I find it looks great and I’m looking forward to painting this as a “Revenant King on Undead Great Flying Wurm” as my final model to eventually finish my Undead KoW army:
Models are the new Mantic Dungeons Dragon (wings repositioned) with a Revenant Cavalry Rider on top. So it’s all Mantic and holds up well, even when placed next to some Dungeons and Laser Dragons. Without arms the model better represents the Great Flying Wurm instead of a “Dragon” imho, but just might run the model as an Undead Dragon sometime too.
At first I thought the model would be too small, but after repositioning the Wings the overall look & feel improved greatly (And the Wings don’t get in the way of Infantry/Cavalry placed next to it anymore) Also had to shave off some spikes to fit the rider. Just a shame it looks a bit too mean (especially the head) or I would have used it for my Elves … perfect fit for the Undead though imho.
Closing thoughts: Can we have a Dragon model similar to this, with a similar cool pose, less mean looking, with a more traditional head (and arms, and maybe more scales!) for use in other armies please? (or more than one Dragon! ) Pretty please Mantic? Pretty pretty please with a cherry in top!??!
