Hi all, it's been ages since i've logged into my account! There's so much new things to see and learn around here.

Anyway, I'd just wanna show some custom animals i made, mostly repaints, but some with heavy modding.

First up, repainted wargs. Painted them in a dark brown, and dark tan colours

Next is a custom based on the warg, with a beak added. This is my first trial at a Griffin. It looks presentable enough, but the 2nd attempt (which is being made) will definitely improve on this

Next is a Pegasus, using the new Horse mould, and adding the wings of the LOTR Eagle (painted white)

Very awesome! Best custom stuff I have seen in a while. Love the griffin especially. How is the beak made? Did you cut off the teeth? Is there any additional clay or something involved? It looks very muscular and sturdy, which is good.

Once again, I envy your spraypainting abilities.

I am working on a pegasus, too. I also ran into the leg problem, which you are covering smartly in your pictures :-)

That's some pretty awesome stuff. :sweet:  I'd love to see those wargs mounted and riding into battle against some Rohirrim.

For the griffin, i cut away some teeth and sculpted the beak with sculpey clay, followed by a bit of sanding with sandpaper to get a smoother finish. Yep, the Pegasus has a probelm with the legs of the minifig-rider having to stand on the 1x1 clips that the wing is attached to. I am experimenting with saddles and other kinds of radical methods, to be shown at a future date..

Very nice! Out of curiosity, how did you recolor the parts? Paint, spray paint, dye? Whatever it is, it looks incredible!

Very nice customs.  I really wish Lego would paint the manes on the Wargs like you did and use a lighter tan/brown... It looks SOO much better than what we currently got!
