    hmmm... if you want, say a brighter yellow ...

    Just some mind thoughts and processing.
    Collecting ideas together for the Armies on Parade this year, mostly with my 2nd Lizardmen army. Some ruins, a little mini waterfall, got to sketch out the ideas and layout.
    Got a colour scheme for my Space Wolves, it is blue; I will put icy streaks on the gear. The basing I will have like a mix or snow, rocks or some will have volcanic like bases but a ice version. My boyfriend questions how is there an ice volcano, I just simply went. Magic. Cause you don't need a reason for an ice volcano.
    Still putting the Tyranids together very slowly, just debating whether I have enough metallic mix for their carapaces. Took ages to get the right mix.

    Here is one pic of a rough layout design.

    20160117_190112.jpg

    I mainly focused on making it look decorated and full of scenery while making sure I have the space to fit the miniatures on. Of course I may add some platforms to have more standing, I know well who I am up against cause in last year I heard that person swept the floor with everyone. That piece was stunning :eek:
    As with army fluff, I went with a underground temple theme, with some rubble here and there. Later I will focus on more detail design. what everything will look like, a 3/4 room view and research the appearance of ruin temples underground. I have the colour scheme for the stone as it is the same I used on the Priest's stand.
    The models names jotted down is me thinking where would I put the miniatures. It's not final, I might just end up putting them where I feel they would go.

    Okay, been putting together the Magmadroth since last night. All I can say is some parts are fiddly, the tail and where you have to slot the neck in as part of the section has to slot into a gap... Fiddly and annoying... for me that is. Still recovering so I am a little sleepy still.

    I thought those would like a rough comparison size. I will post better ones later once I got more of the model together.
    A Magmadroth with a Carnosaur
    20160124_093133.jpg 20160124_093157.jpg

    Just a big mass of models, paint and a can of drink everywhere. The Magmadroth is shorter than the Carno but has roughly similar bulk. May need to do alterations when I put the Saurus saddle on.
    While looking this I may lift the Magma to see then, as the Carno does get a little lift from the rock he stands on but I still feel that he will be shorter.

    Right, model has been pieced together. I've just got to make the saddle and get all the attached markings off. Trying to decide on saddle design as the Carno one will not fit snuggly. Or I could just have the Saurus riding bareback but I think a saddle would fit better or something. I wonder about that one choice for the Magmadroth where the saddle is a platform. Eh, magic. I wonder how the guy stays on.

    I looked at getting one but it was a bit small as I wanted to use it as a Dread Saurian, so I went and bought the greenskin starter box :D

    Might still get one for converting painting purposes ;)

    Thanks for posting this comparison pic, I was thinking about doing the exact same thing. I would really appreciate more pics ;)
    Happy to see that there is some one out there doing it!

    @t-dog Thanks, here is some more.

    I altered the tongue so it is shorter, might end up doing the Saurus bareback riding, I worked out the reins could be the right length to attach. Just need to think of other bits, I did have ideas for the Saurus but it's still in the debating stage and working out how it will work.

    Magamdroth almost done altering, should take pictures but it's really dark at the moment for good pictures.
    I ended up just having the Droth with greenstuff on the markings to blend into the army really, from long observation the scales will kinda need to be made from scratch.
    The Saurus will end up bareback riding with no support at all.

    At the moment I am trying to think of colour scheme ideas, it's been a hard one.

    Slowly working on undercoating before painting, I never use sprays but I may get around to doing it soon...er... later, maybe never. So everything with a brush.
    20160201_095717.jpg
    And in the distance there is a mass horde waiting to be painted... Maybe I should pack some away, at least the ones standing on the Skaven scenery are out the way.

    Slann is near completion too, got to finish the details on the model and the base then boom. Model done.
    Been busy with college still.
    I've been coming up with ideas for a special character for the 2nd Lizardmen, I have got a temporary name of Chaq'Kai for the tribe (from the Lizardmen book with the words and meanings)
    Cause how Ataxa belongs to the swamp Lizards, I feel these guys need a special character, which will be a Skink.

    Nothing like a horde of unpainted models staring at you to keep you motivated.

    Oh I am definitely going to keep an eye on this thread, bought a Magmadroth aswell. Probably going to use it as a Steg with Engine of the Gods, however a Troglodon might be nice aswell.

    Looking good!

    Been busy and slowly painting the Magmadroth/ Carnosaur. I went to try and recreate this colour scheme
    chinese-cave-gecko-for-sale.jpg
    So far I'm doing the base of Stegadon Scale Green on the larger scales and the smaller in Russ Grey.

    Feels like the Chaq'Kai are getting all the conversion stuff and the swamp Lizards are left in the corner, hey. They have Ataxa.
    Got two ideas but the annoyance of not having the models at the moment. One is not Seraphon related while the other is. Being I will have a full Carno model or Trog left over. I have plans for a conversion. I need more Skinks though. I think.

    Magmadroth in the works!
    Need to do some more highlights on his scales before moving on. I hope to finish this guy before the contest at the workshop, I'm getting the rider for my Birthday, not long now.
    Not sure whether to make the pattern on the body or leave it for the spine areas.
    February seems to be the month of contests and busy work, entering three different contests and college work/ days slow it down tremendously.

    Thanks to those for the great feedback
    Been working on the rider, being that he is going to be riding bareback I am thinking of making him stand out that bit more on the model. Cause when I get all them painted he may blend in with the Droth a bit.

    20160212_193320.jpg 20160212_193337.jpg 20160212_193351.jpg

    Tried not to go too crazy with the spare parts, even though it's supposed to be a type of laser beam. I just wanted fire instead :p
    Added small heads and a skull. I used some Temple Guard spares on his jaw.
    Just need to greenstuff the gaps on the fire.
    (Temporally glued to the base for easy painting)
    Now the fire reminds of Tzeentch... Tried to make it look like he swings his arm into position, reason why fire is tilted (from Terradon Riders)
