    After almost half a year since my last post, I'm proud to present finished Scar-Veteran on Cold One. I'm going to put gloss varnish on gems and maybe dirt to make it look wet. Base is very simple, I may add some bits or water effect in future (but i'm not certain yet).
    I finished it last week. Enjoy ;)

    That is some mighty fine painting. It turned out amazing. How did you get the scales on the cold one to turn out so well?

    If you take a closer look, you can see that every scale was lined using grey and white, sometimes i just glazed the highlight. White as a ending color is great when opposed by black as maincolor. You get the high-contrast look. And it's not that hard, just daunting ;) Also, blueish scales make the scheme more interesting. It's actually a Venomhide Ravasaur scheme from WoW, which i used to play a lot back in the old days when i got the time.

    I'm amazed how much you guys love it, i just wish i had more time to finish some other Lizardmen from my force to share. But I'll continue to share some pictures as soon as i get something wip/done.

    As for the photos, i'm doing them at home, previous skins where photographed at my workplace, which should explain the quality difference ;)

    What is the key to the placement of the white? Does it go over a subsection of the grey line?
    It looks gorgeous. It should be no surprise at all; you did a fantastic job.

    Yes, it goes over grey as a 2nd grade of lining.

    Wow that is amazing! What is that greenish-head trophy on the side, it looks like the saurus hacked off the head of a cave troll!

    Does the white go all the way around the scale, or just at specific sections (top, bottom, etc.)?

    It's a head of a Crypt Horror from Vargheist/ Crypt Flayers set.

    Just the specific section, in this example i tried to stick to the bottom.

    Very nice indeed, I love the gems looks like you started with a black base coat which is they way I do them and find it gives good results, the scales are excellent and really do bring the model to life, the crypt horror head is a great touch.

    Love it ;)

    Small update: I'm alive and found some time to fix my old Oxyotl. Also, saurus alpha happened.

    It's the middle section from giant blowpipe from stegadon kit.

    Anyway, I even got the time for some other heroes: 5th Ed. Tehenhauin I'm going to use as a Starpriest, and Skink Chief. Hope you like the Chief as much as I do ;)
