    The 300 points is all the points total, so say you had a unit of Saurus with a full command, you can add in those points, but only if the command models are used. An easier way of justifying this is; say you have a Skink Shaman, you can claim the base amount of points, but you can't add Dispel Scrolls, Lvl2, etc. unless you convert the model to represent the equipment/upgrades. Got it? :D

    I don't know, but if you find a way, you can add the points.

    If you use a normal stick as level 1 you can use a stick with some entangling plants as level 2 :D or if it's an scroll you can make a scrolled up scroll as level 1 and a long scrolled out scroll as level 2

    I actually originally planned on having that be solid gold with a ultra marines blue tongue, but I like this better

    Painting gems convincingly is hard. Those look okay if you squint or are on the other side of the table.

    I love the way his back leg came out. The picture doesn't do it justice :depressed:
    And finally, the base:

    I'm guessing that since we are actually in June and July hasn't started yet, that maybe it is counting as June.... Just a sneaking suspicion.

    Yeah. This is June.... not sure what I'm doing for July yet.... although I did just come into a lot of lizardmen. A friend decided he wanted to go back to his elves and sold me his 2 stegadons, 2 salamanders 2 razordons 20 TG, 24 Saurus, 30 skinks, 8 cold ones, a skink preist or chief, I can't remember which, saurus lord on foot, and carnosaur. For $100
    1 steg, the saurus, skinks, cold ones, and non-carno characters are painted. I'm not sure about the TG. I just doub;ed th size of my army for 1/3 of retail (ish). I'm very happy.
    I'll probably do the salamanders/razordons.....

    Thank you. THe highlighting was actually very easy.... i painted it yellow and washed it red, and because I painted him off of his base, the red rubbed off on the raised areas, making a nice, easy highlight.

    Wow that was a long, rambling post.

    Re: 300 point club - June Submissions due July 7th!

    So, I have yet to hear back from Craken on whether or not he's making a medal for this month, and it seems like activity on this thread has gone down a lot anyways, so I'll probably just whip something up real quick and call 'er good in the next couple of days. I managed to paint 10 Saurus, which is what, like 120 points, plus a Standard bearer, champion, and musician for a skink unit, which is another 38 points, plus the conversion bonus... that's 258 points, right? Maybe I'll have to paint some Skinks before the 7th...

    I should be getting the rest of the figs I bought late tonight. Probably paint the sallies/razordons. 75 pts each (right?) will give me 300.

    Re: 300 point club - June Submissions due July 7th!

    In the past month I've painted my 1k army of
    SV mounted (BBoC and Ench shield)
    BSB on foot (chakax model - hide of the cold ones)
    14 Saurus with spears, mus, std
    10 tg, mus, std
    11 skinks, krox
    5 SCOC, mus, std
    It comes to 996 points (including 80 on items and 25 on BSB-ness). If it counts for anything I'm also halfway through painting a stegadon and painted a hydra and handlers for a friend (175 pts I think. (I get to paint a tester for his sweet sweet cold one knights units cause he likes the way I choose my colours!)

    Not sure quite how your rules for unconverted heroes works but with the hydra certainly that should come to 1000 this month :) (how sweet it is to have exams off). Will post an army shot later and if i can I'll do a shot of the hydra (seeing my friend rogier tomorrow)

    :rage:

    edit: heres a rough shot of my first 1k army :)
