    Not sure it'll be a regular in my lists, but working on a Troglodon conversion using the spare Start Collecting bits.

    All of this is looking great! As others have said I love the colors you've chosen and the direction of everything as a whole. Keep it up :)

    Thank you! I have lots more in the works and feeling encouraged by the recent announcement about the official return of Warhammer Fantasy. More to come in the next few weeks for sure.

    Some progress on my Troglodon. A long way to go on the scales and collar but contrast has definitely saved me a lot of time here.

    Slow progress on the dinos but was inspired to make this custom marker for Comet of Casandora by someone from this community.

    Thanks, I owe it to @Crowsfoot and others who posted conversions (I have probably seen yours in my wanderings)! Wisdom of the Old Ones you might say.

    There has been some progress since but I've also been wrestling with Ripperdactyls and base painting about 20 more saurus. Updates to follow in the new year hopefully.

    Have loved all the games I've played so far and have invested in a second stegadon. Also delighted about Fantasy coming back. Picked the right time to start lizards I think.

    Troglodon is ready for battle. A few bits I noticed in the photos might get revisited later but happy for now.

    Lovely colors.
    I like your version of the skink priest.

    I only have one theoretical note though:
    how steep is the embankment under the waterline?
    ;)

    Thanks! We will have to assume either "extremely steep", or that this lizard knows how to duck down to ambush foes from the water. :p

    Priest is just a spare crew member from the bastiladon with terradon extras but think he fits for an adventurous skink.

    Painting of my second Stegadon underway. Any tips for painting the howdah? Should I magnetise the blowpipes in case I want an ancient?

    Nice colorscheme, Those colors match really good.

    I noticed you didn't attach all the horns to the Steg:
    upload_2020-1-6_12-16-6.png

    If you don't mind me asking:oops:
    Did you do this on purpose or did you forget?

    about the colors for the howdah: personally i dislike them to be fully gold. I like it if they are more stone-like with golden accents.
    For my own Steg I will be going for a black/jade meteoric look(as the theme of my Sauri weapons and shields)

    Seeing the horns on your Steg I'd say make the howdah a bit darker grey, to not end up with to much the same blur of colors.

    But look at the colorscheme of your army and build upon that to match your howdah ;)

    Good luck picking a color

    Not forgotten, just wanted to paint the howdah, put it together then do them in the last tidy up. Still tinkering and might lighten the tips of the horn as well. Will look out for yours!

    Doing some work on a saurus BSB. Does anyone ever use them or does everyone stick to Slann?

    That's one of my favourite units in AoS. Those rerolls rule.

    Edit: nice conversion btw. I like the pose a lot.

    Complete at last! He's a bit extra but I reckon you need to do the extra work to inspire cold-blooded soldiers.

    Love how your lizards are turning out!

    The "orange" looking dirt works great in contrast with the greens and blues of the minis. Great looking standard-bearer and slann, and I love your swimming troglodon!!
