Hello Lustria Online! This is my first post but I thought I might as well jump in at the deep end and start a paintlog. I already have one on the Ogre Stronghold and one on Da Warpath, but the Ogres are nearly finished (well, as much as any army is ever finished anyway) and the greenskins are something of an ongoing project ... I figured I could handle another one and I was struck by inspiration. So I took the plunge and ordered a few boxes of shiny new toys. I prefer to pick the models I like the best and worry about shoehorning them into an army list later, so a Carnosaur was at the top of my list along with the packs of glyphs and glyph plates available from GW Direct. Unfortunately the Carnosaur turned out to be miscast but I'm confident customer service will sort that out. I have a number of ideas I'm toying with at this stage and any input is welcome. I'm still waiting to break open the first battalion so nothing is set in stone. Everything is based on foundation paints drybrushed over a black undercoat. The extra coverage of the foundation range makes this a very efficient technique. I did this for my previous armies and I'm rather happy with the result (paintlogs are linked in my signature). Main skin colour is Tallarn Flesh, which is a brown with a bit of pink in it. Highlights will be Dheneb Stone, and I might add a wash of some colour if I'm not happy with the tone. Secondary colours are bone in Dheneb Stone with white highlighting, stone details in dark purple with sharp highlighting and gold details painted Iyanden Darksun with white highlights and a sepia wash. There may also be room for a spot of green I think. I want solid blocks of Saurus Warriors and Temple guard of a decent size. Is 20 enough or should I have 30? I plan to make these units stand out by replacing the skin shields with large square stone shields made from glyph plates. Bases could be paved and overgrown, maybe with some kind of jungle plants. Not sure how to do this yet. Styrofoam or plaster moulds? I want to convert Lord Mazdamundi as a centrepiece at some point, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a finecast version of the Slann for a while longer first. Hopefully I can make a flexible model that can be removed and fielded as an ordinary Slann as well. Skirmishers will have movement trays where I can really make the basing stand out. That's about it really. So feel free to add your input, or just say hello.
