Confession time. I've never finished an army. Never ever. But that's all in the past I swear! Armed with a fresh start playing Age of Sigmar, an active gaming group, and a more mature outlook, I'm aiming to field a fully painted Seraphon force and have it in pride of place in my FLGS display cabinet. As a typically slow and fussy painter I've been repeating the mantra "You won't get better unless you put paint on it." So firstly, theme and scheme. In my formative years playing fantasy I had the beginnings of a swamp themed lizardmen army spawned under Tzunki. I still quite like the scheme and the concept so I'm going with greeny bluey aqua skin and scales. Hardly original I know, but tried and tested. Lore wise I'm picturing Seraphon who've settled in the realm of life and started converting the forest into swampy jungle, thus upsetting everyone living nearby and throwing them into conflict with all manner of opponents, especially the local greenskins and sylvaneth. I've recently finished a skink chief who will be used as a starpriest, as proof of concept. I challenged myself here with more controlled layering combined with washes instead of speedy drybrushing, as well as painting some freehand on his shield and creating a much more detailed base. Unfortunately I'm let down by my photography skills a teensy bit.
