I like how you painted those ruins with the eerie green stone peeking through the masonry
Thanks guys. I've just finished moving house and now I've got some new minis to show off! Behold my very first kitbash, the Skink Archer!
Got the idea from here. Some lore I made up for him:
Skink Archers are rare gifted Skinks blessed by Sotek, as evidenced by their twin tails. Though most races of the Old World require training in the use of a bow, Skink Archers are spawned with the skill innately learned. Their weapon of choice, a Skystreak Bow, is covered in eldritch glyphs and runes that channel the Winds of Magic. No bowstring is required as the Skystreak Bow launches Obsidian Arrows at great speeds with pure magical force. (Like a railgun basically.) When fired the arrowheads themselves are also imbued with explosive energy, able to penetrate all but the strongest armour.
I made a custom warscroll for him too:
I also picked up a Skink Chief from Ebay that was painted up pretty good, but a bit chipped. So I did a bit of a touch-up, rebase, and changed some colours I didn't like, and tada - a new edition to my army!
Lastly, purchased a glass display cabinet to show off all my hard work!
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned as 40 Clanrats are up next. (They will be the death of me, I swear!)
Ha I really like the archer !
Looking good, Ikea Detolf cabinet?
Yeah lol the exploding one.
Great looking collection!
Got second at Armies on Parade today and also First Army category (won by default no one else had a first army ).
That is excellent! Well deserved
Thanks a lot and thanks for the likes everyone.
Got two new models painted up from the Engine of the Gods set: Skink Priest and Skink Chief.
Also I have learnt some lightbox skills so I've updated all my photos with the latest lightbox photography:
