Here's my attempt at a SSlyth, using a scultped tail and parts from the Lizard men, Beastmen, Empire WHFB ranges plus an arm from a Catachan plus the gun and chain from the DE. Just waiting to get a shardcarbine to have slung on his back.

Looking good so far. Smile I can't say too much because I'm rubbish with greenstuff, but I'd atempt to make the tail thicker so it looks like it could hold his weight because at the moment it seems a bit small. I'd also try and texture it to look more repitilan if possible. Only other change I'd make would be to reposition the pistol slightly so it's leaning to the front rather than the back, if you get what I mean.

A good start, look forward to seeing more. Cool

He's quite cool, but I imagined the Sslyth being Ogryn sized what with them being str5, toughness 5.

Can't wait to see some paint on him though.

Preacher, yep the tail is a bit thin - I proportioned it to the body before I added the arms so now it looks too small - bit late to fix it now though. Sad There is a texture on the model akin to snake skin but it's faint - should hopefully appear when painted. The arm is a but crappy I agree, might change it yet.

Archon, nice but I only ever do one offs, so I'll need to buy a second one even for my own use! Smile

Garfy, the description certainly makes them sound big, but they don't have the bulky rule which Ogryns do (and hence a 40mm base) we'll have to see what GW comes up with.

I like them except the snake bottom. I imagined them more like raptor looking orks, and if a model doesn't come out soon, it's what I'll be basing them on.

You know, check my Sslyth wip (link in my sig).

Basically snake body is oval shaped. Muscles are something like this: 8( )8 , then cover it with skin.

Thanks Ajax, he'll be the only one for now, I'm waiting to see what the GW model looks like, but I have most of the bits to make some more (just need heads I think).

Xelkireth, the fluff says they have snake tails, but why not go for a winged ork type alien instead, the joys of counts-as! Smile

Local_Ork, yours looks good, and definitely more like a real snake. Still in the grim dark future of the 41st millenium there are only anatomically incorrect beings! Wink

I guess you do have a point... I had to double check and I was like huh... how 'bout that... Well crap. I'm glad I haven't started conversions yet.
