    I really like the palanquin itself and the skink attendant. The palanquin has a very ''natural'' look if I can use that expression, it doesn't look like a toy or cartoony.

    I personaly think that the horns could use a final highlight (you said some details weren't finished, it's probably one of them).

    Good work and looking forward on seeing the Slann!

    Also, a mod should move this to the army painting log forum :D.

    When you look at the Lizardmen Painting and Converting Forum, there are 2 subforums that you can click on, one of which is the army painting log subforum. A mod will probably move your topic as soon he sees it.

    The Slann looks really nice, I really dig the contrast between the belly and the rest of the skin. I agree that it needs to be dulled though, it does look shiny at the moment.

    Yeah after I posted this one I saw it at the top of the page. I'll either start a new one or have someone move this one.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I once tried to paint my slann i ended up scrubing it off it looked terrible there alot harder to paint than they look. Thats amazing! red slan ftw, I'll evntualy paint mine stone grey / black like the rest of my army with the red eye's but atm im doing my skinks. I really love how your little skink matches the slann and really brings out the model. Great work!
    Have fun ass-kicking wiht him has he got a name?

    Yeah it usually takes someone to actually mention it, I don't pay a lot of attention to what forum threads are in. Moving it now.

    Also, nice looking Slann!

    I'm bad at fluff. I usually dont name my characters. He really needs a dullcoat. that shiny matte varnish really washed out some of the details in the picture. Matter of fact I almost didnt post it. It looks VERY different in person. Perhaps today I'll run and get some Purity seal.

    Ps
    thanks for moving my thread for me and for the compliments.

    I decided on a scheme for my Saurus just now. I used the painting aid someone posted in july to help me... took 8 different tries to get a scheme I fell in love with and wouldnt you know it they look kinda like my Slann... After I run it by my kids.... they are the experts after all..... I'll paint one up and post him to see what you guys think.

    I assembled and painted this guy in about an hour and a half. I apologize for the missing basing but it hasn't arrived yet from Skullcrafts. I have some really cool stuff coming. One down 51 more to go!

    Looks very nice indeed!

    I think the red skin contrasts very well with the grey of the scales. I'm sure when your stuff arrives for the base it will finish the model off a treat. Excellent work.

    I really like the work you did on the head with a different color for the skull plate. It looks very good. The contrast is very good between the skin and the scales. From what can be seen, the shield is also looking very good.

    I'm looking forward to seeing a unit of those guys completly finished. Keep us updated!!!

    When i looked at your art i could say that you're a professional artist. You made your Saurus alive. I just want to know how many days before you finish this kind of art? You've done an excellent job. Keep it up Chris.

    To be honest this was only a few hours worth of work. It will be a long road to getting the whole army to this point, I have time though as I want this one to be the best army I have done.

    I went a bit overboard tonight....

    I started working on their display board... I told myself that I wouldn't start on it till the Daemons were done... but I couldn't help myself.

    100_6726.jpg

    At the front of the board there is room for 2 units of saurus and a unit of temple guard with 2 Stegadons, and on each tier there will be my skirmishers like my skinks and my salamanders. At the top of course will be the Skink priests and the characters. This is going to be a FUN project. I need to work out how big the stones for each level will be and carve them out of the tiers.

    I cant skip the Daemons. Who will assault the temple when its done if I don't have any Daemons to place on the opposite end! I'm also locked into playing them for the Adepticon Team Tournament. My next project may either be the Lizards or my Orcs which have been in progress for almost 2 years now... I have been waiting since 8th dropped for the new book for them as I had heard rumors. Since I have the Temple built though.... Lizards may be next!
