    Well this month I think I am going to try making a few obstacles and city walls. I already started work on them by putting down plaster and a base coat but I still have work to do on the top of the walls as well as adding more texture.

    I know I’m late to posting, but I’m off to a good start on some projects this month! Got an Incantor/saurus conversion done. I would like to finish basing my stegadon, paint Astrolith Barer, base my Eternity Warden, and work on sculpting some scales on my custom Saurus Knights when I have time

    When they are ready, start a painting blog, I would be interested to see them, especially the custom saurus knights as our current model sucks. Good luck on then and hope it goes well :)

    @Karnus if your still open for ideas on color schemes I can send you some stuff that looks good but is very efficient to paint.

    Either way good luck, and we all look forward to seeing the finished results

    Happy to report that the green stuff for my Saurus Knight conversions are done! Once it all drys, I’ll start adding greeblies to them. If you are interested in the conversion, check out my paint blog here: http://www.lustria-online.com/threads/childishknight’s-machinations.23418/

    I have also finished the base for my Engine of the Gods and gotten the base coat of my Eternity Warden finished. The last thing on my list this month is to base my Eternity Warden. Amazing what a ton of stress at work can do for your hobby lol

    This thread works. At least a bit.
    I finished the metal parts on my Blood Bowl players and shaded them.

    Thanks dude. Unfortunately I kinda need to follow the same rough plan as my Saurus warriors otherwise they won’t match up :

    I normally do:

    Skin/Scales:
    Base of mcragge blue
    Drakkenhoth nightshade wash
    Alaitoc blue drybrush/highlight
    Lothren blue drybrush/highlight

    Bone/claws/teeth:
    Ushabti bone base
    nuln oil wash
    Skull white highlight

    Gold:
    Gehennas gold
    Agrax earthshade wash
    Re-highlight gehennas
    Silver highlight if I can be arsed

    Shields:
    Mephiston red base
    Nuln oil wash
    Mephiston red highlight
    Evil sunz scarlet highlight

    It takes ages and doesn’t look particularly amazing lol

    Well if it works and the results are decent then I say you keep using it.

    But when they are done post the pictures, I like seeing saurus warriors :D

    I'm still on the building phase for my august challenge, painting 180 saurus. I will be happy to hear your advice on supra-efficient color schema...

    I finished my Blood Bowl dudes, and I primed Arkhan, so my minimum goal is reached.
    ...it was low to begin with, but still.

    So do a spray of mccrage blue, and then paint in missing spots.
    Then do a light dry brush of skink blue on the scales.
    On the underbelly use Sotek green
    Follow this up with an all over wash of coelia green shade
    Finally for the underbelly highlight with temple guard blue.

    The teeth and claws are done in the following;
    Zandri dust
    Seraphim Sepia
    Then finally layer with some ushabti bone

    Eyes are up to you:
    I do white scar then layer over with flashgitz yellow

    For the wood:
    Steel legion drab, followed by ushabti bone layer
    Then all over wash in Agrax earthsade

    Shield:
    I prefer red but there are other options
    Start with Mephiston red
    All over wash with reikland flesh shade
    Finally layer with some evil scarlet sun

    Gold:
    Retributior armor
    Agrax earthshade
    Liberator gold

    Black:
    Abbadon Black
    Layer with kalabite green
