This first Wyvern is the old Marauder one - the one that was current when I started into the hobby. I was excited when I found this model at an affordable price in a second-hand stall, however for all that it included the saddle, it didn't have the correct rider. I may have to convert one. For now though, I plan on painting the Wyverns without riders. I can steal painted Boar Boyz for the job if I don't have time to do new riders before the tournament. It's called prioritization. The things that have a viable backup plan can wait until last.

|Eventually I'll convert up a rider to stand in for the original Shaman, who I don't have. In fact, I don't have a mounted normal Orc Shaman at all. In about 20,000pts of stuff. Weird, huh?|
|No doubt he'll be the most brightly coloured of my Wyverns. I do like the vivid green and brown, though. I may use that on the next Wyvern too.|
|What he looks like when he's running away. My Wyverns have a tradition of doing this. Normally as a result of charging the enemy in the rear. Apparently that approach is not for everyone.|
|A slightly closer look, so you can admire the questionable painting technique.|
