    It's been nearly 20 years since I've painted and played fantasy warhammer / AOS. But I'm note getting stuck into it again.
    Here's a few ive started on..

    1st up is my saurus knight alpha

    Now I've started on my carnosaur and a kit bashed Scar-Vet on a cold one..both of which arent quite finished

    And my Carnosaur . I went for a more natural look rather than a color scheme for him. And i gave him a bit of drooling blood on teeth and claws to dinish him off..

    Great start! It's hard picking up the brush again after long breaks. My one suggestion would be thinning your paints and washes with a little water.

    Also, something new to try is washing your metal with different colors. Gold/Bronzes are fun to wash. You can use all types of washes to get interesting shades on gold/bronze. Purple, flesh, brown and sepia washes all work and give cool effects.

    Good work mate. Keep it up.
