    So, with a bit part of my army being unfinished i decided to make a painting log to motivate myself to paint it all up. Bear in mind that right now I'm in the middle of my exams so there won't be alot of painting straight away :p
    I've got a finished Saurus unit, two finished skink priests and a skink chief, two finished skink units, two Salamander units, two finished Scar-Veterans/Oldbloods and two finished Kroxigors.

    What I still have to do:
    - finish my Carnosaur
    - rebuild and paint my Slann: planning on converting him massively
    - one unit of Chameleon Skinks
    - one unit of Saurus Warriors
    - three Terradons (with some parts missing D: )
    - finish my Skink Chief (looks done but has some small stuff to do)
    - redo my Stegadon because bits broke off and it looks crappeh
    - redo two Skink Skirmisher units (10 per unit)
    - five Saurus Cold One Riders, converted to fit on the DE Cold Ones. Kinda stopped working on those because i dont use em in my list anyways.

    And stuff I will be getting eventually:

    - at least two more Salamanders
    - at least 6 more chameleon skinks
    - possibly a Kroxigor
    - possibly an extra Stegadon

    Aka i got myself alot of painting to do D:

    Here are some pics of stuff that are finished and WIP

    If I could paint half as well as you can, my army would be finished for sure :p. Great idea to make a PLOG to keep yourself motivated. I find hard to motivate myself when I don't get the results I want, but saying that I'm gonna update my PLOG soon usually makes me paint more :D.

    Great looking stuff you have there, I really like the carnosaur and the characters. I'm really looking forward to see a full unit of Saurus Warriors of yours!

    Wow very nice stuff! The NMM gold areas are very striking and really stand out well. I'm doing bright orange scales on mine as well, but you have done it better. Did you just highlight up from dark red to yellow, or add washes as well?

    So tonight, I worked a bit on building the Slann's palanquin. Nothing much yet.

    I did the scales this way: a layer of Blazing Orange as the base. Then I washed heavily with Red Gore. I picked out all of the scales with Blazing Orange again, and started to highlight them by adding Sunburst Yellow to the Blazing Orange. Every layer had more and more Sunburst Yellow. The last highlight was an edge of pure Sunburst Yellow.

    And here are a couple of pics of my Saurus Warriors. They arent painted that well, I tend to paint my characters as best I can and leave the infantry as 'meh good enough' :p

    Soooo

    I managed to paint some chameleon skinks in the busy days of exams (also, the pics are of poor quality, taken by my cellphone. I'll have my good camera for the next update):



    These arent finished yet though. They need their scales done, and extra highlighting on the skin.

    I also did some work on my Slann. I am planning to scratchbuild/convert the palanquin, and here you can see the first step. Its based on the GW one though :p




    And look what found its way to my mailbox after three weeks!



    Its the Avatars of War Lizardmen Hero!
    I must say that the quality of this model is excellent. I have yet to put it together, but there are barely any mold lines present. The pieces fit pretty good too, even though ill have to GS some gaps. A very nice model for its price!

    As always, comments are appreciated!

    I like the green chameleons, I would love to see a better picture. As for the Slann, I think the palanquin looks promising, not sure about using a slotta base though.
