    star dragon rock size?

    hello. i am to convert a nice base for my hydra and i simply loooove the new star dragon's rock base.

    my question is then; how tall is rock itself? i want my hydra to climb it, but need to know a little about the proportions..

    thank you

    regards, AND

    Probably about half the length of the Hydra itself, so possibly too large, unless you cut down the rock to a more manageable size/

    aw 'aighty..

    sounds fine to me. some of the rock is attached to the dragons claws, so i might as well cut away anything about that line

    thanks!

    Remember that the rock is hollow, so whatever you cut off you will need to fill with GS... But I'm sure if you are considering such a conversion, that kind of work would be easy for you.

    That sound's like it'll look awesome! To make it look even cooler I suggest making the Hydra's heads look like their kind of roaring, a bit like the dragon in the WAR trailer.

    Good luck with your coversion.

    That sounds really cool too... Is the Hydra model plastic?

    the hydra is full metal (hence the price and lack of base) If it was plastic, I would have purchased one to use the heads for conversions. As it is, I'll just use my $2 Reaper Hydra.

    apparently the cliff is slimmer than I thought, so Im considering letting the hydra try to walk around the side of it, with all 5 heads bend in a bow around it.. IMO this would look awesome, but repositioning the heads and necks might prove to be kinda difficult.

    Any one know how to assemble a hydra? I've tried pinning, but it didnt go well :/

    thanks!

    pinning is probably the only way to go. If you are bending the necks, be very gentle, and maybe use a vice and pliers, covered in foam or cloth, and make the bends along the length of the neck rather than at one point. Also ensure that you have filled gaps and generally built around teh necks using modelling putty...
