Hello everyone and welcome to my painting blog. After a warm and pleasant welcome form you members I am quite excited for my very first post. This is where I will pose pretty much anything about the progress of painting my army. I will divide my posts into “projects” where I focus on painting a specific unit/hero/whatever and aim to finish a project before starting a new. This is a prefered way for me rather than a garantie I do however keep a little something on the side in secret that I will reveal each weekend. Just to keep you interested This will most likely be pictures of a unit/hero in my army that I've painted or repainted recently. My posts will likely be a little text heavy. I like to write about my projects to give you a more personal view into my painting. If you want to know more about me (for some mysterious reason), I've made a post in the introduction section that pretty much sums up my background concerning the hobby. Feel free to check it out. Here is the link: http://www.lustria-online.com/threads/new-member-heres-my-contribute-to-the-great-plan.18015/ Any comments, feedback, tips are always most welcome so don't hold back SAURUS WARRIORS PROJECT I decided to start out easily and show some love for my old Saurus Warriors. As of now I have 1 unit of 19 lizards with spears and one unit of 10 with hand weapons that I painted waay back. Fortunately I had another 11 lying around totally unpainted, so I thought that this would be a good place to start. Painting these guys would bring my warriors up to two regiments of 20 each. I made them 4 at a time (3 the last time). I started with priming them blue. Here they are ready for further painting. After some base colors done I tried drybrushing the scales. This didn't go exactly as planned. I feel like the lighter color that I wanted to mark the edges of the scales kind of painted the scales entirely. It came off a little flat. I might have been doing the drybrushing wrong. Any tips? Also I saw my opportunity to try out the Citadel Texture Paints. This is “Lustrian Undergrowth” (duh!) with a slightly lighter green drybrush. I must say I kind of like the texture paints. I have never quite gotten the hang of making bases and this certainly was an easy way to do it. I do however feel it might be quite an expensive solution since I already used a lot of the stuff on only a few models... I also highlighted the skin. I tried painting thin lines on the head and body to represent the leathery reptile look.
