    Cool, I have no idea on some of these miniatures and gladiator duck miniature searches aren't being helpful. Going over today to pick up more boxes. I'll see how many old cold ones I get, might have an idea in the wings. I very likely won't sell any, but if I do the I'll be telling these forums first.

    I might have been a little too quick to think I won't sell anything... IMG_4324.jpg
    Of immediate interest to the forum there is a box of bloodbowl lizardmen, but I don't think from games workshop, can't recognize these guys from other companies either. IMG_4325.jpg

    With the majority of the cases in these boxes being historical figures like these. IMG_4327.jpg
    There are also 15mm of napoleonic era troops, Vikings, Zulu, and all sorts I haven't looked through yet.

    First try at greenstuff! I think when I try agains I'll have to have some different tools and plan a bit more. IMG_4339.jpg Sorry he is kinda blurry. The Burning Shore is a bit of a Lesser known warhammer book I think. It is the first of the Florin and Lorenzo trilogy and is notable for having a large lizardman presence. The second book deals with the ogre kingdoms with the third taking place in Bordelaux. While working on this guy I realized just how rediculously long the cover art saurus' tail is. Anyhow, more work to be done on him. General tips of greenstuff modeling is welcome, and I'll be reading more myself.

    Update on this saurus based on the Burning Shore book cover! Just have to decide how to base him now and a few touch-ups. IMG_4418.jpg Definitely more used to painting in blues than reds, but I like how he is turning out!

    That's a pretty good tribute, the color is spot on!

    I really slacked off finishing this guy, but here he is with a proper base!

    IMG_4504.jpg IMG_4505.jpg IMG_4506.jpg IMG_4507.jpg IMG_4508.jpg

    I would say I have 2 lessons learned from this guy. To not be scared of greenstuff, but have tools on hand for it rather than relying on fingers and an xacto knife. It might not show as much in photos, but I also lost a lot of definition spray priming this guy because I rushed it.

    On to painting my new shadespire Sepulchar Guard!

    And as an update, the boxes of miniatures I received included an original in box pack of dark elf blood bowl players as far as warhammer goes. I know there are also a small amount of 40k minis in random places. Additionally some of the historic figures that still had a box were from the Minifigs Napoleonics range. If only they all still had labels.

    Looks really good, maybe just darken in between the tiles on the base.

    Hello, this is Croco.

    Been a while but I'm back with pictures to show!

    The warden's face got a bit clogged due to me fretting and repainting it too many times but otherwise I simply followed the warhammer tv tutorial because I liked his default colors so much! We had some scrap planks at work and I had plenty of time in our workshop with nothing to do so I made a nice place for paints and tools. It will surely be organized soon so don't look at how random the paint placement is. Dimensions are roughly a foot and a half long along with a foot both wide and tall.

    Yo, those bloodbowl lizardmen I posted before are called reptiliads and they also have normal fantasy troops as I've figured out looking through some crates.

    Speaking of crates, I had to put them in our storage building to clear up some space, but I took some pictures of their contents first. I don't want to flood this thread with 100 photos so for those interested, in no particular order, Croco's mystery crates.

    Citadel miniatures include some metal imperial guard wearing fuzzy hats, and about 3 adeptus sororitas.
