What a herd!!! Those are stunning! And the details on the bases are amazing! How long did it take you to do each one of these?
The two more complicated ones took a day each to make the cuts and reassemble. Then about three days for the epoxy putty work. Painting with the pastels took two days and the Sculpey bases with details took another day or two, the mushrooms took a few hours. The other ones were faster of course and this is while I'm in my store, so I can't work all the time.
Amazing work! I knew that one could get away reusing the Papo Pachyrhinosaurus' body for another ceratopsian (coughcoughstyracosauruscoughcough), but these are just amazing! How do you get all these extra figures anyways?
I can buy Papo wholesale for a cheaper price so they aren't too bad pricewise.
I might also do Centrosaurus apertus and Diabloceratops. Also maybe some chasmosaurines which require all new heads: Kosmoceratops, Utahceratops, Medusaceratops, and Mojoceratops ;D. At least these can leave the tail short. I do wish I had another body with the detail of the Papo but a different pose. Guess I'll have to change them myself .
I was thinking of doing this with the carnage styracosaurs. I am Glad i didn't yours are way better!!! Truly i cant believe how well they look as well as the base's you put them on. Cheers!!!
Well, thanks. But why should that stop you from doing it? It never stops me, if you mess up, so what. ;D I learn new things every time. Maybe something I did will show you how to do it, or just ask! Go for it.

Here's the newest one, Medusaceratops lokii a chasmosaurine ceratopsian from the Judith River Formation, Montana, 77.5 million years ago. The fossils were confused with those of Albertaceratops nesmoi, a centrosaurine which does look a lot like it but a bit smaller.This was from the Papo Styracosaurus with a new head and some body work.
Really really amazing. I like how you made the plates and specially the quills, very nice touch. Nice colours too! Will you give quills to your future conversions too?
Thanks,actually this is the second time I put quills on a ceratopsian. Last year for the diorama contest, I did a pair of Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai. I'll put quills on some but for variety not on others, unless proof comes out that they were on most ceratopsians. ;D
