Skull helm and bone armour is perfect! So badass and epic!
Thanks all i have done some more work on him cut the neck down and he started to work out to get those traps bigger...
i really want to change the legs (add scales) but i fear fucking the whole think up...
I think you should change the legs, or at least the feet. A Saurus's feet have three toes and are clawed, and the humanlike, five toed feet look off.
I think they look fine, I dig the bulkier legs with the normal non digitigrade knees. If it really bothers you, you could always green stuff some talons for him. I doubt anyone's gonna be standing there counting his toes while they're supposed to be rolling dice and moving little men around, and if they do notice just say an ape or something fell in the spawning pool when it was time for these guys to be born and tell them to stop worrying how many toes your model has when they could be rolling dice and moving little dudes instead
feet are ok in my opinion... 5th ed saurus also had more human feed...
I dont care about tye number of toes hell.he matches my primal temple guard so not an issue. The problem is with the legs well.yhe pants since he kinda look like hes wearing assless chaps lol
maybe add a kind of loincloth?!
I agree with @tom ndege. The Saurus needs a loincloth.
The pants seem to have been sculpted as slim-fit , so I think that if you wanted to remove them it wouldn't be too hard by sanding and adding a bit of green stuff here and there.
Woot a retry on the scales and these match...sadly i cant find time to paint woth my inlaws here but i can sneak some modeling time once everyone falls asleep
C/c is welcomed and appreciated
The scales are looking good, but don't be afraid to go off pattern, you don't want them too perfect.
Well sadly i had a transportation accident happened and my eog stone thundertusk was destroyed....im trying ti fix it...on the other hand i got an idea for my stormcast and i want to make strom wolfs...changing the gryphon chargers to wolfs and the gryph hounds to wolfs to. Planning on a small warband of these guys..well if they trun out really great ill make a whole army...
But the first step would be to see if i can trung a gryph charger into a wolf..it it works il be saving more money...
I hope it works and i did not just waste a lot of gs...
Hopefully it will work out! Sounds like an awesome project!
It probably could work, you would just need to give it paws and change the head and tail.
Right was able to fix the damage to my model and getting some pai t on it. I just dont know what colors to use i based with mornfang and washed with flesh shade but i dont k kw were to go from here...normally i would just slap more paint on untill the old ones guide my brush but i spent sooo much time on this girl i dont want to ruin it by using my normal painting method. Dose anyone have an eye on the old ones plan and can help guide my brush ...thank you
Oh and whats the best way to higlight black
That's a tough one. I've used a grey + black mix for highlights in the past. I'm not a great painter though, so there may exist a much better method/colour.
Your model is looking great so far!
Using citadel paints? Prime Chaos Black > Abaddon Black > Eshin Gray > Dawnstone
Basically prime black, then paint black, then add a broad-ish dark gray highlight, and finally add a thinner mid gray highlight.
Applying the dark gray (Eshin for Citadel) in fairly thin, semi-transparent layers diluted with glaze medium (like Lahmian Medium) will make it easier to control how big that broad highlight is and will also help you blend it into the black. You can (don't have to) do the same with the final, brightest edge highlight on larger areas--though I doubt it'd make a difference on small, semi-isolated bits like some scales, carvings, or craggy surfaces.
And it might seem weird, but you want to paint over the black primer with black paint because they have different finishes and you'll get an uneven look if you just use the primer as a base and then clean up mistakes using regular black paint.
For painting fur the fastest and pretty good-looking is drybrushing. I you want a "cleaner" look to the model though, then go for edge highlighting
