    Now that my first models are here, it's time to put my colour ideas to the test.

    Very quickly threw some paint on a saurus, and skink, to see how they look next to each other. note - I havent done any real details, just quick base coats, and a quick base. No rings/jewellery etc, just wanted to try out what I had in my head.
    My plan was Orange Saurus, Blue Skinks, White/Albino Champs, Yellow Tetto'eko, and Purple Slann (when he arrives).

    Im happy with how they're going to look, so time to start doing them all properly!

    Now to get into them all :D

    Not seeing your picture. Looks like that image is in your dropbox account and is also set to private. [?] Your browser could be letting you see it (because hey, it is your dropbox account).

    Try uploading it to L-O directly.

    Making some progress on Tett's palanquin, hopefully get this done tonight.

    some blending, highlights/shading to go, and finish off the other small pillar pieces.

    This model had already a few base colours on from the previous owner, so have painted over and started again.

    Thanks n810, still got to edge highlight all the gold (soul destroying amount of tiny gold parts haha) and blend the feathers, those are the two main tasks tonight!

    some more progress on tett himself today, im hoping to have him all together tonight, fingers crossed.
    IMG_2380.JPG

    Camera has trouble in this light, all the red/blue "tiles" on him and the base himself I have given a once over with some 'ardcoat, to make them look more like ceramic tiles, rather than painted stone.

    and next to my two colour test models :
    IMG_2384.JPG

    For my lizards, im going with all of them having black, glossy eyes, i just like how it looks, also doing the same with many weapon blades etc, a black, with gloss varnish. going for an 'obsidian' kind of thing with them, anywho, he's coming along nicely!

    I got further than I thought I would. Gloss coats on javelin heads and eyes. A few tongues to do, and the bases and shields.
