One doesn't often encounter a Turtle with an expressive face, but that is one pissed off looking Turtle...could be the ship someone built on his back Suspect .
Your OH-SO-CLEVER creation is turning out WONDERFULLY! WELL DONE , Amigo! thumbsup

That's looking brilliant! I love the turtles head... and indeed, I guess most turtles would look pissed when you build a ship on their backs? Razz hmmm I feel a reallife experiment coming up... where does one buy turtles these days? Razz

This is awesome! Reminds me a lot of the Tuskarr from warcraft, who also built howdas on the backs of giant sea turtles.

Really nice GS work on the turtle and the ship, and Deafnala is right, that is one pissed turtle! I guess I wouldn't want a band of pirates building a ship on my back either...

I really like the little boardwalks around the sides of the ship. Can't wait to see this guy painted up. Very, very cool!

WOW! That actually surpassed my wildest expectations...A REMARKABLE piece of modelling. I LOVE the sail, & the woodwork, & the bow chaser, &, well, just everything is SO PERFECT. VERY WELL DONE! I'm looking forward to seeing her all painted up.

fixed it for you. Wink 36" strip of GW style GS for about £8
(it was basically easier to use greenstuff than to work out how to do planking effects around the bow.)

hopefully returning to this project in the near future after painting 2K of empire and building a 40K stormraven
