    I'm considering trading my models for Slann now but I backed out of selling them due to the logistics of sending and its hard to let go :p

    Good to see you're still keeping track of it though... get settled and then pick up your brush again! ;)

    Hopefully, I have my paints and some projects need to set up a new place to work.

    The eyes of the great slann blink. It seems an eternity has passed, yet for the ancient slann it was but the blink of an eye. The new temple is still mainly deserted of skinks and saurus attendants but the presence of great Huanchi is palpable. As the attendants continue the process of of turning the ruined pyramid into a thriving home a feral bastilladon is being trained a relic of the rise of sotek has been unearthed, and scouts have been sent looking for terradon eggs as the nesting season is soon upon us.

    Hi everyone, I'm back to painting.

    Those scales are beautiful. You can't go wrong with either of them.

    Not to mention the cat, which has to be the most realistic paint job I have seen to date. Looks so life like! ;)

    Thanks, I'm going with a blue skin brown scale combo that I hope works out. Fingers crossed :) (midway through the blue at the moment.)

    You do a quick test in an hour or so and you don't realise how long its going to take on the full model :p.

    So I went with the brown scale design I played with in the last post its just a base coat, shade and 3 layers.... should take no time at all.... haha.

    Haha I'm building it with the ark which is a terrible choice because the crystal is head and shoulders above the ark I just love the model with all the snakes pouring out of it. Good thing i'm just in this for the painting and hobbying cause the best models tend to have weak rules ;)

    Oh gods, I hate this I've ruined it its awful its terrible I don't even know how to strip paint off of plastic ugh this is the worst thing I've ever painted...

    Actually things are coming together nicely if I just highlight the blue skin now.. yeah.

    Sometimes I think I'm my harshest critic :p but it really came together. I'm like 95% done with the blastiladon just the skinks, sneks and poles left.

    I dunno, he looks fantastic to me! :cool:

    Really like how much the bastie's shell looks like an actual turtle shell, well done! :vulcan:

    I also really like how these snakes turned out, you really brought out all that tiny detail.

    Tiny details that's my name! ... unrelated my painting desk needs a new lamp.

    I'm actually really liking it but I had these jitters all the way through that it wasn't going to turn out.

    It's a bit over highlighted in places . I was just trying to joke about my insecurities while painting it. That's the finished thing with all the highlights :)
