    That is truly unique. I'm curious to see how this turns out. Awesome!

    That terradon is quite unique!

    Your army is beautifully painted, from the gold to the weapons :artist:, the color scheme almost reminds me of tomb kings on your more albino lizards. I am a big fan of that carnosaur's color scheme too, well done!

    Thanks guys! Here goes the test Terradon finished. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out overall. I tried to give the boulder a more greenish stone colour, as I plan to paint big parts of my Stegadon howdahs that way (and it's a material I haven't introduced yet into other miniatures of my army).

    Let me know what you think about him!

    Finally I finished painting the Terradons and riders, just some work on the bases to be done (I like to batch paint my bases so I'll be doing the Priest, Guard and toad too).

    Reaaaaally happy with these guys, the models are dynamic and beautiful. Hope you like them! (mobile phone quality camera strikes again but oh well)

    Amazing. Just... Amazing!

    One thing though, with so many albino units, how will you make the Sunblood stand out?

    Thanks guys =)

    Actually that's a pretty good point... didn't think about that!!!

    I suppose that with the whole army being albino guys, the thing that the Sunblood has going for him is his age and prowess in battle, so I think I will darken his scales more in comparison with the rest of the Saurus of the army, and hope that along with warpaint and his scars are enough to make him stand out.

    Cheers!!

    Maybe make him soaking wet with blood? You could use a few spare limbs from other sets, and place them severed at his feet. You could make it look like he butchered them (his enemies). Or you could make a weapon embedded in him, just to show how tuff (technical orc term) he is.

    Go the other way, your army is pink toned so for your sunblood go grey and highlight upto pure white, he will stand out like a sore thumb.

    It's been a while! I have not painted a lot during the start of the year, but I finished 10 skinks and done some work on 2 Knights and a ScarVet.

    Here they are!

    The shield arms are attached with white tack so I can see how they look.

    Happy with the results of the warpaint on skinks, I think it gives them a lot of character!

    Cheers!

    Those are overall really good but what stands out as excellent to me is the warpaint on the Skinks and the incredibly detailed Cold Ones!

    I don't feel like I'll be adding anything new here but well. This is awesome. Mate, you're incredibly good with colours. The skin tones are rich, well contrasted, balanced, they look natural. And those terradons just jumped out at me. The warpaints are perfect for your lizards as well. Keep it up!!!
