    Hi all,

    My first Cold One is painted and based, so time to start a blog an show some pic's
    In here i will post pictures of the models that are done as well as WIP from Seraphon and some older projects i have laying around.

    SO lets kick off:

    My Seraphon army scheme is a like the Fangs of Sotek scheme except for the mounts.
    Inspired by this picture from the GW-site:
    [​IMG]
    For the mounts i was inspired by a Painting blog on Youtube:

    Cold One #1(2).jpg Cold One #1(1).jpg
    Cold One #1(3).jpg

    I am not entirely sure about the coloring of the saddle. Orange is not a returning color in the army scheme, but i didn't like the typpical red saddle.
    I was wondering if a Yellow saddle would fit better, hence the yellow stripes on the Fangs' shields.

    Also, looking at the last picture, i'm thinking off glazing the eyes of the Cold One with a drop of varnish.

    Let me know what you think, much appreciated :)

    Gr, Imrahil

    Decent start, I think the saddle will be fine once the rider is on as most of it will be covered so you won't have a bright orange patch just bits here and there that will provide nice contrast against the green.

    TWG has some really good tutorials so make sure you look through his playlists.

    I started painting the Scar-Vet for the Cold One that i already finished.

    IMG_20190207_215911.jpg IMG_20190207_215947.jpg

    And did some work on my Carnosaur(same scheme as the Cold One)

    IMG_20190207_215900.jpg

    after taking the pictures of the Scar Vet i realized that a Scar Vet of the FoS has a red and black stripe on his back, so redid some of his backscales ;)

    Question: What do you guys do with the scales on his cheekbones? same as his back or his belly?

    Looking good! I’ve gone for the same colour scheme with my Seraphon, although I went with the more traditional style of mounts

    In the meantime an update on the Scar-Vet and the start of some Warriors:

    IMG_20190212_233930.jpg IMG_20190212_234015.jpg

    I added edge-highlights on the Blue scales and the skin.
    Also painted the saddle and leather across the shield.

    For the red I'd like to edge-highlight this and was thinking about 'Fire Dragon Bright'.
    All the Black I'll give it a 'Drakenhof Nightshade' and a edge highlight of 'Sybarite Green'

    Let me know what you think.

    This morning a shipment arrived to make life easier.
    Intrigued by the Detachable Terradons/Ripperdactyls i ordered some tools

    IMG_20190213_061551.jpg IMG_20190213_061543.jpg

    To use on my Saurus Knights and Carnosaur and other future models ;)

    Just go a tone lighter so they stand out from the rest.

    Can never have enough tools!!! :D

    With the red, Fire dragon is ok but make sure you don't cover the full scale.

    As said before i did find a box with my older models and projects.
    And because i promised some pic's, here we go:

    Overview of the total army:
    Total Army.jpg

    As you can see, not all of it is completed and some of it is broken down because of storing them(improperly)

    In front stands the Tomb King from the War Sphinx on foot. Backed-up by 1 full unit of Skeleton Warriors with spears. I really love the way you can adjust the poses of skeletons... there so flexible :D So i gave them all a different pose.

    Tomb King on foot.jpg
    At the right flank a unit of Skeleton Knights converted into Skeleton Centaurs, because i could.
    Undead Centaurs.jpg
    The left flank as some unit-fillers and the crew of the War Sphinx on foot, who i wanted to create into an unit of Tomb Guards.
    In the back is the War Spinx now ridden by a Tomb Priest (built out of the Collegiate Arcane Mystic Battle Wizards)
    Unit fillers and Tomb Guards.jpg
    At Last the spare bits of the War Sphinx to make up and WIP Tomb Giant... not sure how to progress from this
    Bone Giant Conversion.jpg

    Also 2 units of skeleton warriors and a other Tomb King still in the box

    Other models/armies will follow

    Thanks, those are my first conversions.

    Hereby a small sitestep back in the days. Bretonnia!

    Knight Errant (1).jpg
    One unit of 8 Errants, two of which painted fully.

    Knight Errant (2).jpg

    As well as an Pegasus knight, which i am especially proud of paint-wise. It is not totally finished.
