    A Motorola G4, not sure if it's due to the shutter speed being too quick, making it not pick up details as much.

    Have you tried using a camera app where you can adjust speeds etc?

    So in celebration of the new edition going on Preorder, it is time to see the good old Swamp Lizards to come back after going missing. These green and brown spawnings will return to battle against Chaos
    Also a certain someone will return and he now has a friend to charge into battle with

    Been working on the Stegadon, the basecoat has been shaded and the scales have been drybrushed
    Still need to build the howdah and crew.
    After getting a few models done for the Swamp lizards I might do a few for another spawning.
    Was going to put it up as a poll but I can't seem to change it so yep.
    Either going with the Tomb Lizards or the more tropical coasts with colourful lizards (which does sound similar to my Coa'Xoach but those are based off plants). I keep getting all these ideas, slowly adding onto each separate army
    I can see the Tomb Lizards having mostly Guard

    Went down and preordered today, got some freebies. One being a model that looks like the one on the preorder just with a headswap :shifty:
    Preordered the Soul Wars, Warlord edition of the Generals handbook because I will help keep track because scenarios have to be used now, the easy build Glaivewraiths; the store is only getting one box of each easy build. Also ordered some Saurus Knights but I have to wait for them with the others.

    Now back to working on the Seraphon, I got told there is an upcoming campaign. Haven't got told the points because it depends on how many skull points the shop gets between the two teams.

    Still crazy tempted to do something with this game, just did a small bit of replaying of the game, I would say it's like a mini tabletop with arena battles. At this point I doubt I will find fitting models so I may be doing slightly small sculpts out of greenstuff and that. Won't be making all of them though.
    This is the closest I can get with showing what the all the units look like (I do actually want these cards, they have stats and descriptions on the back but no good scans of them. Only stuck with my manual) Concept is there but only of some of the units, but I haven't found the rest on the internet.
    So inbetween miniature work some of these may pop up, practice the sculpting skills a bit. Once I work out how to gain better access to the unit designs. I know there is other games I want to make mini models of, this is just one of them.

    Did some work on the first flayer, has a rather meaty neck in the picture, once it will cure some more I will detail it a bit. These ones look like they represent vultures. So there is naked crows/ravens and naked vultures so far
    I could of done a wing swap also but finding the right wings will be a pain, now to find more of the head used that isn't expensive and work out what to do about a Terrorgheist. Could do a heavy convert on a Lord of Change but what would happen if I want more. There is also getting the Terrorgheist kit and doing some greenstuff work and attaching the heads found in the Lord of Change kit as I have a few left when I built one. There is also Vargulf also that needs some work.

    I thought with the Nighthaunt that the Undead birds hate them for some reason. For some reason the name popped up with calling my Nighthaunt Court of Rose or Court of the Rose.

    Trying to work out whether this looks alright or it just looks the neck and head is too big for the body. Wings and legs still need to be attached IMG_20180706_162513198~3.jpg

    Hard to tell... I'd say a little bit too big to be perfect... the head is ok I guess but the neck a bit to massive... but could look alright when the wings and legs are attached...

    Just did a test fit of the parts and it still makes just the neck big, might have to just attach the head and maybe make a much shorter neck. Hmmmmm

    When you are working on your AoP but other ideas are pestering you. Especially when you have a good amount of painted models, so just add on and make a fancy board.
    Why does my brain think this all the time. A mix of wanting to do my MediEvil 20th anniversary board but wanting to head back to the Chaq'Kai cause I have a lot of models already painted, just the matter of adding on and making a good display.
    Decisions
    The two Guardians of the Graveyard are nearly done, just need to lightly seal them then add the grass on

    Built a Sunblood out of spares last night

    Don't know how the weapon ended up dragging so low, must of slowly dropped down when I wasn't paying attention.

    Meet the Cold One that fell victim to Papa Nurgle (My dad)
    IMG_20180808_083023452.jpg IMG_20180808_083103471.jpg

    Been busy slowly working some details back in, it's mostly trying to add the teeth back in. Melted skin, missing eyes and strange looking fangs.

    My dad apologised as he never realised it would melt the plastic like that. Now need to search for a possible replacement Cold One. Will make this one part of a Scar-vet on Cold One. Should of stopped him myself really but I never realised at the time as he kept assuring that it will get the paint off..... and apparently turn plastic into a gooey mess.

    Yep he was right there :joyful:
    Cleaned up the metal parts very well.
    We had problems getting the green off the Cold Ones for some reason, could of been either the thickness or the type used, so he had the idea of getting the stronger stuff.
    At least it gives the story idea of the Cold One that survived Nurgle, somehow

    Hmmm... already too late to start crying and guilt-trip your dad into replacing it with five new ones from eBay? :D
