    Thank you!
    I did a lot of wet blending and edge lining on the throne to make sure that it wasn't just a big, monochrome blob of grey, if that makes sense?

    A couple of new units - both are conversions based on the start collection box inspired by @Crowsfoot (thank you!).

    Nice bright colors. The astrolith has a nice native American vibe. And the shield and crest of the old blood look really awesome.

    Beautiful work! I have to agree, your work (specifically the bright and vibrant colors) remind me a lot of modern-day Mexican artwork, specifically murals and street art, or even some of the buildings! I am very curious, what reference material you may happen to be using to come up with your color schemes?

    Your banner bearer is amazing, don't stop painting until you have an entire armies worth of these brilliantly hued lizards!

    Thank you! I don't actually use any pictures or anything for reference, but I'm a very visual person and interested in art and different cultures in general, so subconsciously there may be an influence from Mexico. I did see an exhibition about the festival of the dead in Mexico recently :)
    And my initial attraction to the Seraphon was that this is an army that almost begs to be painted in bright colors :)
