    First up is this rescued bastilidon, I picked it up 2nd or 3rd hand for practically nothing. started working on it yesterday, not quite done yet but it’s getting there. As you can see there’s a huge gap in the armor scales in two places. Those were filled with green stuff.
    Any recommendations for jungle/Lustria themed basing?

    I’ve decided to take part in the May challenge
    Mine is the bastilidon and a skink chief (the one with the crescent knife and holding a heart.)
    and maybe on unit of skinks if I have the time.
    Have a great one!

    Looking good so far

    Terrain a lot of people use plastic aquatic plants etc

    Weapon heads, black, jade are popular choices, jade is pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it.

    You can follow that but I do it slightly different.

    1. Base coat with dark green, I use Incubi darkness
    2. Add fine thin lines with white scar, be random
    3. Add fine thin lines with pallid wych flesh
    4. Randomly shade with biel tan green, try to cover some of the lines but not all.

    Yeah just be random, but sort of squiggle the line you don't want them dead straight, think lightning when you do them and keep the paint thin.

    You could do a few really fine dots of white or almost white at the corners to really make it pop, but you see it in person, that your judgement call. Nice work!

    I would probably leave it as it is, but you could cautiously add some white, that could work.
