I completed my nomad.
The beast has natural leather armor for defense and a big mouth for offense. Although fairly docile when not hungry, they can be very dangerous in a fight. I attempted a Gila monster pattern for the skin as suggested (used a picture from Google) It came out ok.
Zoltan the Quar rider is well armed with rifle, grenade and a pistol not to mention a big shovel. And old torn poncho keeps the sun off him along with his sun hat and heavy sun goggles. He bares the symbol that denotes him as a member of the sun clan. The rods on the side are his tent poles and he is laden with various pots and packs. He was a fun little guy to create I hope you like it.
