    Evening all!
    New to the forum and aos!
    Not painted for about 18 years but over the last few weeks I've been painting a bit most days and finally have some 'finished' models which I'll post below, any tips/advice is much appreciated but I don't think I've done too bad! I've picked up enough for a small army:
    Troglodon
    20 saurus
    20 skink
    15 saurus riders
    Stegodon old
    Razordon
    Skink shaman x2
    Old blood
    I've done a few conversions on some of them and in the middle of converting the steg to house the left over throne from the carno kit!

    Welcome to the forum!

    The paint job looks great. Cool conversion on the Oldblood; gives him a sort of Tyranid / Aliens sort of feel.


    I can't see the first picture. It won't load for some reason. :(

    Welcome aboard, not bad for a 18 year break going forward look at adding more contrast easy way is to paint the scales a contrasting colour.

    And start a painting blog if your intending on putting lots of pictures up, much easier for us to find and comment on your work. :)

    Cheers again all, yeah I'll set up a blog when I know my way around! The current project is getting the throne on top of the steg, maybe using randon bits to turn it into an engine of the gods and thinking of using the left over standards as a sort of plinth for it so I can still fill it with skinks! Put a few photos below

    I like the idea with the "dots" on the Troggy, how you painted a few scales in another color.

    So I've managed to build up the steg (pardon the paint) but ill need a midget to fit in the gap so i think it will take some serioud live to get someone in there and look half decent! and also built another old blood out of carno parts and a bit of magic
