    Nice...
    Seems like bastilladons are kind of a thing momentary...

    While I was taking pictures of the Salamanders... sorry for the shininess, but they are varnished.

    HOW DARE YOU!! ;) :D
    Naah, those look good. The slight gloss of the varnish fits them IMO. :)

    Love your salamanders!! That's the type of colour scheme I was thinking of for mine, makes the models look a lot better using that colour scheme imo

    How did you do the scales on their backs if you don't mind sharing your technique?

    Of course I don't mind:

    - Basecoat of Averland Sunset over all the model
    - Wash with Fuegan Orange over all again
    - (then you finish the skin)
    - For the Scales yo apply a glaze of Bloodletter all over them
    - Then apply a dot of Carrabough Crimson in the center of each scale

    If you are curious the skin is done as follows starting in the previous step:

    - Wash of Reikland Fleshade in the deepest recesses
    - Layer with Averland Sunset
    - Highlight with Fash Gitz Yellow
    - Extreme Highlight with Pallid Witch Flesh
    - Glaze with Lamenters Yellow
    - Highlight again with Pallid Witch Flesh again for extra contrast

    Hope that is helpfull.

    Also, as a small update I put together this little fellows to be a unit filler for my Ancients on Rhinosaur:

    They will be something really easy and relaxing to paint when I finally end the struggle that is the Bastiladon.

    Did you sculpt that curled up snake yourself? I don't recognize it from any of the kits I own.

    ^ Yep it's from the metal Jungle swarms blister pack.
    I believe you got a semi random assortment of them.
    (I have a few mixed in with my swarms from the cold one box)

    Yes back in the olden, olden days you got 5 lizards in the blisters. Then they made a Snakes one as well, I believe in the 7th edition overhaul.

    Oh sorry, I don't play AoS. I use my Lizardmen as Salamanders (faction not unit) in Kings of War.

    Ancients on Rhinosaurs is a unit of Large Cavalry and the Horde formation (every unit in KoW goes in standard sized bases) fits really well my two monsters (Stegadon, Bastilodon) side by side but I need something to fill in the gap in the middle.

    Base size for the Horde is 150x100, each monster is on a 50x100 so I based the lizards on another 50x100 to fill the space in the middle.

    Thought it might have been this but I did think at one point, have I missed a new unit in the Seraphon book :facepalm:
