    Okay forcing myself to paint more before posting, hence fewer updates, but here's a couple of Terradons:

    Hold on tight:

    looking good some excellent work

    as for painting a couple of shortcuts are give it a nice wash in something like army painter medium tone it will sink into all the scales on the carnosaur
    and give depth to the detail

    and I have always been a fan of dry brushing a light bone colour

    Excellent! I really like the ideas you had for the Terradons, and also their execution!

    Been too long since my last post, but I do have a bunch of stuff in the pipeline. Here's some converted Skink cohorts (minimum unit sizes be damned!) Thanks as always for following along!

    I went with a Red v Blue vibe but here's some close ups of the units:

    So I know lots of folks here aren't fans of SCE, but I was given an old box of liberators and so I tried to fix them up and make them better. While I'm hoping GW doesn't get any ideas, I also think they bring some much needed bulk to my fledgeling warband! Hope y'all enjoy!

    Not a fan of it, indeed, but i like your work.
    Very fond of the Drum-Hammer ;)

    Would you run these as Temple-Guard?

    Is left-handed sword something that comes with the bits or were you able to convert it from right hand sword somehow?

    Glad you like it! :)

    You could, but they are on 40mm bases, so probably better to run them using SCE warscrolls (with better fluff of course)

    I kitbashed it, warrior kits have far more drum bits than needed (in WHFB or AOS tbh) and the arm holding the mallet is the left one, so I just grabbed the hand from that, and the sword from a spare right arm bit.
