    Nice paint scheme, and I absolutely dig the base!

    My newest skink, I think 3 is the magic number.

    I agree with @Aginor, real good work on the basing. Awesome terrain bits aswell.

    Nice colorscheme, great contrast on the EoG!

    Dig the freehand scale on the Bastilodon.

    Keep up the good work:artist:

    Gr, Imrahil

    Thanks! I Had to do several attempts on that free hand scale, I had the idea of adding itza symbols to all my model's which means each skink takes 10 mins longer. But I think it is worth the time.

    Alrighty, I have my first 5 finished. Sorry about the photo spam guys but I wanted to show each one off. I most likely won't put photos of these guys up until I have 20 or so done. I'm going to Start the "Leader" of my whole skink cohort. 5 down 40 to go :0

    The skink leading the cohort needs to stand out a bit from the other 44 skinks so I'm going to give him some special features- Might have this done by tomorrow night.

    To be brutally honest I think I might be addicted to painting, I feel like I should be painting when I'm doing other stuff like going for a walk or watching a film with my family... Not that its bad xD but I haven't had time to play on total war Warhammer recently

    Just a quick update, this is a rough photo of what my skink chief should look like, so far I think the base is coming out good but I'm not sure about the top of the skull IMG_0145.JPG IMG_0144.JPG

    Looks pretty good to me! It’s definitely a suitably impressive base for the leader!

    Thanks! I need him to stand out a lot as he is in a 45 skink cohort.

    Before I come offline for a bit I just wanted to say that I put in quite a big order of modeling stuff a few days ago, it includes:
    15 jungle themed bases: and 5 ruin themed bases: ( I will probs still add some features to them but it does cut quite a bit of the workload off all my skinks but only by a little since I still need to paint them)
    Screenshot 2019-02-20 at 22.02.32.png Screenshot 2019-02-20 at 22.02.17.png

    along with some mushrooms :O ( they will look nice as small features for my swamp bases)
    I also grabbed some flocking stuff to add some more variation to my skink bases
    finally, I got some AK interactive swamp water green (arrived today! :) ) this means I can make some more water themed ones rather than the dry land ones.

    Great stuff all around. I always love seeing people puting a lot of effort into their bases and yours are exceptional.

    If I might be so bold as to give a small piece of criticism, I feel you could probably thin your paints a tad. Especially on the stegadon model some of the details are getting a little lost. Just a dab more water in your paints can make a world of difference. Your more recent posts are a step in the right direction.

    Keep it up, I look forward to seeing more from you.
