I have been working on my Lysander Librarian conversion off and on for about 3 weeks now. I knew what I wanted him to look like but I struggled with the how to finish the base. I wanted to create something that would stand out but also flow with the rest of my army. After scrapping several ideas I came up with the following...







This is what it looks like with Lysander on it....





As you can see, the work has only begun..., Until next time:victory:

That's pretty badass. This may sound moronic, but is the green stuff going to be a tree or flame? Since he's a witch, it could look kind of cool if it's warp fire and the skulls and whatnot were painted up to look like screaming souls... particularly since he's flinging a flaming skull at someone!

I think if you want fire you should add a little more greenstuff, it looks a little to thin and spindley to be fire. But still good job and totally awesome.

Damn man.....

That is fantastic Fist. I think the gs in the back could go either way, fire or tree. In all honesty I wouldn't go with fire just yet. Paint the model first and then put it on the base to see how it looks. With the yellow colour scheme you have already, fire may be too much of the same colours and it will all blend together. Don't rush into that. Model first, then the base.

I think a cold blue or deep purple color would look very striking against the yellow. IMO it looks almost like the Fear of Ancients Psychic power. Paint the model first, then paint some sprues different colors and use them as a background to see how the colors go together. Good Luck, looks great.

Thanks Bl0203. I'm almost finished sculpting the tree so I'll get going on painting Lysander soon and then decide on what to do with the base after. Your idea for colours are right on though as they would complement the yellow of my army.

IMO it looks almost like the Fear of Ancients Psychic power.
Good guess! That was what I was trying to create.:eek:k:

Librarian Lysander : (Profile)

Epistolary
T-Armour
Force Weapon
Storm Shield

Veil of Time
Fury of the Ancients
(169pts.)

I'm also considering equipping him with an Adamantine Mantle to make him immune to instant death but I'm not sure that it would be worth the 35 points that I have to spend to get it?

I completed sculpting the tree tonight so I am posting an updated pic of the finished base. Next, I'll post a pic of Lysander painted so that you guys can help me figure out how to paint the tree.:victory:

Thanks all!
