    I was not expecting porn to come up when I made the search for "BBW":confused::eek:
    (I didn't know what it meant)

    And I kinda like the Slann smooth :).
    frogs don't really have wrinkles.

    I just realized that I forgot to put a pot belly on him. Gotta get back to work!

    Yeah. I realized that wasn't appropriate.

    When you are about to say something inappropriate and your best friend stops you.

    The starter kit came with an extra head crest for the Scar-vet, so I used one on a Saurus warrior to make him look more like the Sunblood he will become. I am going to use the extra Carno head crest for a shield, because it is far more impressive then the normal shield.

    Thoughts and/or criticism?

    Yeah I think that one will look good and easily distinguishable from the other Saurus.

    Just looked through your blog (been really busy) as I like to try and keep an eye on new painters.

    Paint

    Although your paints are cheap they will cost you more in the long run, you wouldn't paint your car with cheap paint would you?

    GW is the most expensive paint but there are other makes Army painter, Vallejo etc and they are all much better than craft paints, craft paints are fine for terrain and scenery projects.

    Primer

    2 thin coats are better than one thick coat, you get better detail and a stronger colour.

    Shade

    When you shade don't apply too much you don't want it puddling on the model

    Drybrush

    You want the brush to leave no paint trace on a tissue again 3 coats of drybrushing is better than one heavy coat.

    Overbrushing

    This is when you leave more paint on the brush than dry brushing but apply it the same, good for adding layer colours on simple models.

    I will leave it there on techniques for now.

    Your shield

    *The good neat colours on each section

    *The bad paint is too thick clogging detail

    *The ugly the gritty finish will show up when you drybrush.

    (* Is for the benefit of @Warden I'm pretty sure he will love the titles)

    All in all you have made a great start, but a bit of advice on paints don't rush out and buy 20 pots buy one or two and build your collection slowly get the primary colours and mix them if needed.

    Keep it up anf get some more pics posted ;)

    Thanks for the tips. I will have to go online and buy some other (better) paints.

    In the meantime, I will work on converting and assembling the rest of the miniatures.
