    Highlights are always a good thing, and might improve your work a lot since your base is very good ;)

    Very good for a first model - it might be cool to add a little bit of blue on the edge of the spear tip, but that’s probably down to personal taste as much as anything. The only other think I’ll say is it’s absolutely worth basing your models; even just simply sticking some PVA glue on it and adding sand will make all the difference in turning a good model to an absolutely fantastic one!

    my army is from Ulgu so im going to try and base them in a dark tar and tendrils look probably using water affects but we will see when we get there. on the biger models im going totry to get the efect of them rising from the ground but more practice is needed.

    Just add some lighter colors to the raised egdes. So if it's the sclaes for example a very light blue would do, or even white if used sparingly.

    For the orange you could use yellow. For the shield you could use the turquoise used for the saurus, and regarding the gold, silver is probably the safe bet.

    Awesome kit bash of the Saurus priest. I love his stands, head tilted backwards, right in the middle of casting a spell.:woot:

    Keep up the good work!

    I think the bone parts (claws of the mount, horns on the throne, skulls) and the gold parts on the rider would benefit from a sepia wash.

    Otherwise he looks pretty cool, good job!
