    Here they are! They are done for the most part. :D I just want to add some greeblies to their reigns, but then they will be ready for some primer! So excited to start painting them! I won’t spam you guys with individual pictures of each Knight (unless you guys would like to see that) ;)

    Thanks! I’m working on a paint scheme now. I’ll post an update once I finish one of them. In the mean time, here is them with primer on them (which immediately makes them look better)

    Hey! It’s me again. I haven’t posted in a few days because I wanted to get a lot of painting done on my Saurus Knight hero. There is still a lot left on this guy, but here are some WIP pictures! (Sorry for the terrible quality)

    FA2F6C23-DBC2-4CB2-B96A-0106FC0C5C64.jpeg 6F760E7F-84D8-44C5-B39C-112AFB855C04.jpeg BCFAC6D6-1D3C-4D44-807B-FD81E950AE6C.jpeg 2FAB94D7-382E-41A6-AB81-539B56DC8F8A.jpeg


    This is my first attempt at wetblending (used it on the feathers)and I’m really happy with the results! Although I need to practice being more consistent with the blend. I find it hard to keep yellow looking yellow in the middle.

    I still need to paint the cold one’s face, highlight all of the scales for both the rider and mount, touch up some things here and there, put some wash on the shield, and work on the claws of the cold one. There is too much bleached bone white so I need to figure out how to separate the claws from the skin. I was thinking about painting the skin a dark yellow and doing a brown wash to darken it even more....

    This guy was a lot of fun to paint and the other riders are not as complex as this guy is. I’ll post more photos as I go on the other guys!

    Let me know if you guys like the color scheme or have any suggestions! I’m open to new ideas if you think I need to change anything

    Hello everyone! Man, it’s been wayyyyy too long..... work and life got in the way of the hobby, BUT I think I’m back(at least for now). I snuck in and purchased some of the Lost Kingdom Miniature lizardmen models before they were all sold out and they look great! The only on I’ve finished so far is the chameleon skink hero model and I’ve proud of him so far! I’d like to get some better pictures of him with better lighting and a better camera, but this is all I got right now.

    Still learning how to wet blend, but I really like how his arms and tail turned out! I think I need to paint more dots around to blend the orange in some... please send me any suggestions for how to do that!

    Hope you guys enjoy! I’m working on painting up the Kroxigors from Lost Kingdom Miniatures, but I’ve been feeling inspired to finish my Avatar themed terradon riders first.....

    That Inspiration hit me once too, I wish you good luck on your terradons.
    I tried the same colorscheme on rippers then and it drove me mad
    but I think its one of the nicest colorschemes for our flyers at all.
    I'll definitly try it again when I'm a better painter.

    I just checked out your page. You're an awesome painter! I found a very thin, clear plastic which I plan to glue to the edges of the wings of the terradons for the ikran conversion. I've already got a color scheme I'm currently painting on them and some cool ideas for base coats. I'll be sure to post my progress and possibly a quick tutorial.

    That sounds good so far, I had also thoght about doing that plastic-card thing but did'nt dare
    to convert the wings that much, so I paintet It on.
    I'm really excitet to see how you'll solving that.
    Speaking of it makes me wonder how people paint the wings on those nurgle-flies...
    gotta look that one up.

    Hiya! I’ve been hard at work trying to get a proof of concept for the Ikran terradon rider conversations and Im happy to reveal my proof of concept! I also learned how to make trees which was a fun, creative break from only assembling and painting models!

    11D17652-7C0E-49AA-8F87-9A56C62D0208.jpeg 3781EF01-7ED6-4134-AF86-0C23F41648C5.jpeg E0F9D23D-0E6E-4DB7-B987-429CC0827415.jpeg

    I found some old, clear plastic...somethings (truth be told, I have no idea what they are from, but it’s some kind of packaging) but the point is they are clear and they cut nicely with an exact-o knife. I still need to work on the paint job a lot, but I wanted to at least test the look of the wings. C&C welcome, as always!

    ....should I add the secondary wings near the legs or keep it the way it is? I’m undecided on what I want to do with them.

    Coming back to this thread to see some more impressive work. Nicely done @childishknight .

    It got me thinking if anyone had used Dragon Ogors to make mounts for Seraphon Knights? The legs look a bit clumsy, but still pretty good overall, and they're very close to the mounts made here.

    Yeah I went through all the GW models trying to find some conversions. I still want to do a cold one conversions with the Stormcast Eternal Evocators on Celestial Dracolines...although all the green stuff I used is still cheaper then three of those guys....

    Idk why I feel the need to intro all my posts like a YouTuber, but WHAT UP PEEPS?!?! I’m now in crunch time to get...well really any work done on my terrain piece for a local competition and I’m happy to report: I got a lot of work down last night!

    62782ADB-F380-487D-B22F-6A404B39D38A.jpeg B40078F0-C1F6-4EDA-BF9B-BECD9DC565B8.jpeg 423FEADD-EE81-4944-BC54-1F97A51313ED.jpeg

    I know it doesn’t look like much yet, but I have started to cover and blend some air drying clay over my styrofoam so I can paint it. Most of the paints I have will melt the foam :confused:

    Things left to do: I need to finish glueing the cork board rocks down, blend the tops of them to other surfaces, paint the left structure, add greeblies to the right structure, prime the right structure, paint it, cover the whole thing in sand, seal in the sand, paint the rocks, and then go around touching everything up.

    I’m also in a band so I have to manage fitting practice, my full time job, and a social life somewhere in the next week and a half.... o_Oo_Oo_O

    Got a ton of work done on my terrain! Base coats for the structures are done! All the clay blending is done! I think I’m going to start adding sand to the base tonight! Woohoo!

    still a lot of work left to do, but I really feel like I can finish this project in time! Who needs sleep anyway?
