Default Spittra the ancient (Lizardmen hero)

Spittra the ancient is a Oldblood leading the mysterious Saurus breed called Dilopho-Saurus. these are similar to the original Saurus but with the difference of their crests. they have a split-crest on their heads rather than the normal neck-covering crest. aswell they have slightly longer necks. their drool are toxic. quite bad tempered and often blessed by Sotek,the Dilopho saurus are Vicious fighters.Spittra leads them into battle without fear, often riding her Carnotaur. she also have, as difference from the other saurus, a sharply coloured neck-fin that symbolizes high status.

so,this is my Oldblood for my jurassic park/dinosaur themed army.(though u use her as Scar-veteran until i get 2000pts of course). and yes, you heard right, it's a She. much based on dinosaurs often have a leading female. my Saurus are based on Dilophosaurus from jurassic park.and my leaders have those neck-fins to get more colour and look special. Sotek is good to represent the "spit" attack as it gets +1 attack when charging. or else their vicious nature. so my choice of red matching colours represent it well too.

Whoah... how'd you get the frills?! It's not as good as your Tyranids, but it's a superb conversion nonetheless.

I like the dilophasaurian idea, too.

I like the eyebrow tings. Nice work but not up to your usual standard.
I have walked the edge of the Abyss.
I have governed the unwilling.
I have witnessed countless empires break before me.
I have seen the most courageous soldiers fall away in fear.

I have seen your future.
And I have learned.

There will be no more Sadness. No more Anger. No more Envy.
