    I will post a pic tomorrow. Mostly have focused on further edge highlighting, painting claws, the ropes and base coating some of the gold. All in all, fairly minor progress so far :)

    Here is the most recent progress on the carno. As a bonus, I'm including a pic of my fiance's great unclean one. She's still choosing which arms she wants to use on the big poppa.

    Love the contrast on the carno and the great unclean one is amazing!

    I always like it when people go for yellow.
    It is hard to pull off, but it can look so great. :)

    Thanks Lizardmanperson. I appreciate the compliment, and will pass along your praise my lil lady as well.

    Aginor, I am also super happy with how the yellow looks. If I were to do one thing differently, though, it'd be to paint the yellow sections white first and then yellow. As it is, I needed 4-5 thin coats of yellow to cover most of the blue. I think painting it white, and then using yellow, would have given it a more even coverage and I would not have needed to use quite as much paint.

    Yeah painting yellow over anything except white is a lot of work.

    So, I FINALLY finished painting up my unit of 20 skinks. I still gotta go and base them, but they are finally tabletop ready. Also, the fiance bought the mausoleum terrain kit, so I spent a little time painting up the base for one of the statues. It's looking pretty sick! Last but not least, I bought a Shalaxi Helbane to paint, which I am thrilled to give a shot, while also being absolutely terrified of ruining. It is just SUCH a pretty model.

    Finally got around to magnetizing bases and coming up with a transport system! The baking pans are working awesome and I got a few plastic bins that they fit inside of. I can now transport my army without fear of anyone breaking or spiky bits getting snagged on Styrofoam. Total game changer for just 10 bucks!

    Loving how much your Sinks have come along and your other models look good as well. You sure as hell aren't going to miss that Carnosaur coming your way from the other side of the tabletop!

    Got my hands on some Kroxigor that need some love, and got my hands on a second carnosaur that was previously started. Now I will have both a Scarvet and an Oldblood! Lots of new guys to paint!
