Games-Workshop's Blue Skink Champion

This figure is the champion for my blue skinks. I couldn't get the front view to sit on the glass correctly so I had to hold the base with my finger - that's why the black background. I really enjoyed this figure - some great detail - the mouth really sets it off. Completed in February of 2001.
