    Merry Christmas and happy new year, Lustrians!

    After lurking for several months I thought it was about time to write something on here! I played a lot of 6th and 7th edition Lizardmen then let it go with the advent of 8th edition and general life taking priority. With a sudden nostalgic desire in the last year, I managed to dig out my old boot bag full of kitchen roll and Lizardmen in various states of disarray from the mountain of stuff in my parents' attic.

    I was always much more interested in playing than painting but given COVID that has changed and I am slowly but surely working my way through all my old models, especially our favourite, slightly goofy cavalry models we all know and love.

    I never had the money for the big dinos when younger but the SC Seraphon box, Celestial Stampede, Magmadroth, and Maw-Krusha have certainly filled that scaly hole. I also much prefer painting the bigger models.

    I feel like I'm learning a lot through trial and error in the hobby side of things, including wondering why the ink washes always make the models look glossy until I realised my folly of not shaking it properly! Using green stuff for the first time and magnetising everything I can has been thoroughly entertaining.

    Awaiting in the pipeline so far:
    - Paint all old models (skinks, saurus, saurus cavalry, salamanders)
    - Convert Gor-rok
    - Convert and magnetise Tetto'eko and toad from terradon kit for mini-slann
    - Swimming Troglodon from the great SC Seraphon thread
    - Build and magnetise Terradons and Chief on terradon
    - Build and paint Temple Guard
    - Convert Astreia Solbright's dracoline into "fel-lizard" (patent pending) Saurus mount/monstrous cavalry
    - Make rules for said fel-lizards (maybe even a special character?!)
    - Build up confidence to paint Oldblood on Carnosaur
    - Build and convert Maw-Krusha with Blood Bowl saurus into Great Wyrm riding Oldblood
    - Decide what to do with Magmadroth
    - Base all above
    - Improve current storage solution with cardboard, magnetic sheets, and base magnets
    - Buy more lizards

    So... just a few things to do. Any tips much appreciated!

    Welcome along!

    Great to see you were driven back to the hobby. It looks like you have a fair amount of models already and a lot of work to do ;)
    Have a good hobby time, over here as well.
    Be sure to start a painting blog, I'd love to see your work :)
    If you have questions just ask, there might always be someone to help you along.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Thanks guys! I'll try to get a painting blog set up at some point! I do find myself getting distracted from painting looking at everyone else's amazing work on here. Glad to be part of the community!
