Yeah! She's definately got a touch of the Raquel Welch's, excellent as a cavegirl.

I've got a spare so I may have to nick that Idea Cap'n.  8)


 Heldrak, the lion was done in either Plaka Yellow Ochre or Inscribe Caramel over a plaka brown undercoat, with added white for successive layers.

Thanks, I've got a Manticore that I'd like to do in a fairly realistic Leonine manner and I've been at something of a loss to find the right set of tawny colors. What about the mane?

This one was tough for me also...

Bugsda who makes the elephant?  Nice conversion to put Tarzan on the elephant too! :)

Heldrak: The mane was Plaka brown over a very dark brown base with, yellow ochre added for a couple of highlight layers.


Darkoath: I think it's a Copplestone elephant, don't know for sure I got it on ebay.

Cheers Lads :)

I think Bugsda may have handed the title to Zoogla if he takes this round, my money was heading towards the Capt. with the pirates looking good in the other pairing.

Which one of them will play the Train trump card?

Ha ha! Not me I'm afraid. I've stretched to an armoured car, but I'm jiggered if I'm going to buy a train I'm never going to use   lol

I wouldn't be too sure about the finishing places, you know...
The fabulous Zoogla is indeed looking pretty secure at the top of the table - but Svennn, I can hear you and Grimm thundering up on the inside rail...
And I'm betting at least one of you two determined competitors is aboard an armoured train!  ;)

I'm reckoning on a 4th place finish again, just outside the medal positions.
Same as last time.
My destiny.  :D

I never wanted to be an engine driver and do not see the fascination held by so many in the trains ;D

No train for me but Grimm has one on the go so I think you can at least look forward to a medal with me in 4th at best.

Which is far far above my expectation as I was aiming for the top half. All in all it has been great fun and has spurned me on to finishing a few more bits from the pile.

Tarzan and family impresses me in all sorts of ways.  Their flesh is great; the ape and elephant look like they could walk off the page; and while I guess having animal team-members for Tarzan's family makes complete sense, this still strikes me as very original entry.

I concur. 'Nuf said.
