When Mierce Miniatures released the concept art for Cnebba, it became my immediate choice for what a Thundertusk would look like.
However, the production schedule slipped and it became obvious that I wasn't going to get Cnebba in time for the first tournament I was taking the Thundertusk to (March 2015). So instead, I took a Thundertusk torso I'd magnetized the heads on earlier, and began work to make it wolfy.

With the mount painted, I then attached the platform using seven pins (one is visible in the picture above). The riders and platform were then painted.

|It's not done yet? What a baseless accusation!|

Finally, I based him on a laser-engraved wooden base, flocked it, and called him finished.
