Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi there... first post (yay me!)
I always liked the classic priest who rides a palanquin carried by four Temple Guard, rather the 'floating' slann on his own, but under the latest editions the Slann has very limited attack stats so having Saurus bearers wouldn't make sense combat-wise.
Therefore I decided to make a Slann who's carried by Skinks instead.
Anyway here's my WIP Mage Priest 'Smoking Mirror', next to a standard issue Slann for size comparisons, note they're on the same size base so he should be game-legal.
The gold icons by his knees represent the Sacred Plaques that Slann can carry into battle.
I'm going to add a Skink attendant riding in the back of the palanquin and hopefully tidy up the paintwork to the best of my ability (I'm not so good yet), plus add some lustria-style base decorations.
I like it. It would obviously look wayy better than the "floating" look if you were feilding your slann on its own. That gives me an idea for a slann being carried by jungle swarms.

I like the idea, and so long as its on the same sized base or bigger for that matter then it is legal i game terms, and as for fluff you can field whole armies of skinks so them carrying a slann around wouldn't be too rar fetched an idea, though id probably havegone for more like 8 skink bearers cause lets face it the slann don't tend to diet very often

Yeah I guess my Slann is currently 'helping' the Skinks with a little of his levitation power
Thinking about it there's probably space to fit another two Skinks along the centerline while still keeping the same base size, so that's something else to go on the todo list.
Currently I'm converting a Skink champion model to stand behind the Slann holding aloft a Chaos Warrior's skull.
Fluffwise I think it makes sense as my army is from the Southlands, in which the Slann are less powerful and Skinks are more prevailant.
That looks really good, and its also creative I wish I was good at conversions.

Still a work-in-progress, but I've done some more work on him...

Normally I'll be fielding my Slann either alone or with Temple Guard, but I havn't converted those so I'm not showing them (duh). I'm still considering adding two extra Skink bearers but I'm concerned that the base will look too crowded (I'd rather keep the original base size if I can).
Finally, I've got a conversion planned for the Slann himself inspired by this art:
