    And any other advice you have to offer.

    As the title says I'm hoping y'all might be so kind as to share your opinions, and advice, on which color scheme I should paint the rest of my army. 20180219_180642.jpg 20180219_180543.jpg 20180219_180442.jpg 20180219_180102.jpg thanks for the help folks.

    EDIT: Seems black and purple is the vote. So what I have to paint and y'all have to look forward to is the remaining saurus, a unit of temple guard, saurus on DE cold ones (need to convert and assemble these), scar vet on carnosaur, and two bastilladons with solar engines.

    I'd go the one on the right but both look good.

    Thanks, neither one is even close to where I ultimately want them but I wanted to get some feed back on which colors to go with. I started with the one on the left, got part way through and wasn't loving it so went back to the drawing board and thought I might make a Huanchi host, hence the predominately dark grey.

    Anyway was planning on doing a progress blog for motivation and sense this is where I'd do it wanted to get some feedback on what this site might like to see. Thanks, I'm leaning towards the grey and purple color scheme but still not positive.

    Black and purple is a fun color scheme. I'd go with that.

    Sure that would be great. I suppose that would have been a better place to post originally.

    I happen to like both, but think the black/purple with bone is more striking

    Anything with purple in it is a great choice as it makes for a very striking scheme

    Purple rules. There's so much you can do with it, ranging from dark, almost black purple, to bright bold contrasts. It contrasts well to some cold colors and some warm colors.
    As a kid I had a hard time with it though, purple being one of my favourite colors. Until I said: Screw those guys.

    You can use a black wash on the teeth to clean it up a bit,
    in fact washes all around. More highlight would be nice too.

    Ps. I recommend this site for all the beginner painters.

    Yeah absolutely, not finished with this model yet, just base coats currently, washes and highlighting still left to go.

    Thanks for the link. I will have to check it out.
