Seems like bastilladons are kind of a thing momentary...
Bastiladons rule. Can't wait to see it finished!
As Promised, a couple of shot of my Salamanders/Fire Elementals
While I was taking pictures of the Salamanders... sorry for the shininess, but they are varnished.
HOW DARE YOU!!
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?
you continue to inspire!! great looking models!!
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.
No I didn't. I have it from back in the day With all the rest of the snakes and lizards. Pretty sure it came with the snake swarm blisters
^ 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)
Ah OK that explains it.
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.
What are Ancients on Rhinosaur?
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
