He looks ferocious and fantastic. Great work.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

I always like seeing toys and other things converted into miniatures and you did an amazing job.
Like others have said, you've managed to make gold look great on a creature. Excellent!  :-*

Okay I admit it, saw the first picture, thought, I don't remember that illustration.. then I woke up a bit and realized its not the illustration.  lol

Very nice conversion, hopefully in future battles he lasts a bit longer on the field.

and yes, when I got to the actual illustration, that I remember  :D

Those toys do make for some nice conversion fodder, and your PJ and re-modelling does it far more justice than its original colors.
