    and so my Starting Path to Glory army is finally painted and ready to run this sunday. Unfortunately for me our armies were decided before the changes with 2.0 so not happy with what i have on a competetive side but happy with the final products lol the final detailing on the skinks will happen later on

    Thanks crowsfoot..
    Im still waiting on the swamp water to dry, then ive got to apply blood spatter and lots of blood trailing behind the top body thats dragged through the swamp..
    I guess it's just more blood for the blood god, just as they ask

    Not bad! A Little gore on the base of a big beast always looks cool.

    Done and dusted for now. Still a few touch ups to do like shading the bronze and dry brushing the weapons and highlights. I went for the bronze look as everyone seems to go for gold lol. I also got some"blood for the blood god"technical paint for the blood. Came up heaps better.

    So i started working on my next unit rippers... airbrushed it golden yellow then went over it in patches of fiery orange.

    Then ive gone over all the grooves with orange wash. Then went over everything with casandora yellow shade. Though i don't think I'm very happy with the orange wash in the grooves, think i should've left it as it was

    I'm also going to put a flesh wash on the wing bones area and dry brushing the wings lightly with white and highlights of white also

    Thanks nightbringer. I really enjoyed doing the stegadon, and the rippers are turning out to be a completely different challenge to paint compared to the other big dinos. Hopefully i don't try to go too overboard with them lol
