You actually just answered my next question! I do have him based but I'm going to remove him and glue him directly on the Trihorn. For some reason I thought I saw in the picture that he had to be on his personal base.

Thanks!

Re: The Book of Hrognak (Mounted)

Cutting off of the base and gluing it to the howdah will probably look better, yes. Though personally I'm keeping mine on the base to use without the trihorn too, and that's what I've been encouraging those in our local scene to do as well. That archer is hard to find! So for those who have it I think it makes sense to be economic and let it pull double duty.

I had the Gruumsh box set so I had an extra one to spare. I think as long as the base is securely attached to the Trihorn it shouldn't be a problem. There aren't too many tournament maps with overhangs anyway.

Re: The Book of Hrognak (Mounted)

Something really cool to do would be to cut a hole in the howdah (that's how you call the dino, right ?)'s platform, the size of Hrognak's base, with a small magnet under it. Then you replace Hrognak's base with the cuted circle on the platform and just paint the borders for a more "classic heroscape base" feeling.
And that's it, when you use mounted Hrognak you have a fully integrated figure, hold by a magnet, and you can remove the Orc to make a standalone hero.

The howdah is the platform, not the dino, chap. The dino is something like a triceratops (not sure if it's any specific dinosaur, but something along those lines).
Howdahs are platforms placed on the backs of large animals (usually elephants) in the real world, often used for parades, hunting or warfare. This is how a large number of war elephants were employed in real life - they'd often have a howdah with archers mounted inside it.
Cool idea, though.

(I'm not editing my message, I guess it will make some more people to laugh at it, still being understandable )

That doesn't surprise me, it's a loan word, basically - initially Arabic or Indian I believe. I don't think any western-European culture has actually used animals that such a contraption could be used on, let alone needed to come up with their own word for it.
It's not exactly common word, I'll grant you! I just happen to be a massive history nerd, so it's fairly familiar to me.
