    Hi there,
    Welcome to my painting corner. Hopefully this blog will help me to paint more models regularly :).
    C&c always welcome.

    I'll start with my Skinks
    tmp_31009-P_20161014_145425_1229331485.jpg

    Things to do:
    Paint the center spines orange, like on the head,
    Add another layer on the weapon to give it a more"bronzey" look,
    Finish the shields.

    So...
    Hope to give an update soon....
    Cheers.

    Thanks a lot...Really cool if you like the Skinks :). Continued painting the scales of the spines aka basing them with hull red to paint them orange. I think you need the life span of a Slann to get everything painted:confused:.

    So I finished the red scales on the spines. Will now start painting all the bling-bling as n810 mentioned ;).
    Actually spending some days on holiday preparing 3 rippers and musing about the colour of the shields in general... I'm trying to find a color scheme for the shields that somehow connects the whole army. Nevertheless it shouldn't pop out too much as the lizardmen themselves already are colorful...
    Any experiences or suggestions? I was thinking about sandy/earthy colours.
    btw: always thankful for correcting spelling/grammar mistakes as I always try to improve my english :D

    I'll post pictures when back at home.

    Well, it's been quiet a time... Unfortunately I hadn't had much time to paint, and I needed a short break from painting a gazillion skinks at a time. So I switched tooooo:

    tmp_6374-20170119_1200511356650268.jpg

    And another one:

    tmp_6374-20170119_120013748540124.jpg

    Still not finished but gave me a break. Hope you like him :)

    Looks pretty awesome so far. Do you want to design the wings, or are you thinking highlights and washes?

    Actually I don't know o_O. But as I want the 'dyls with their orangeish (?) colours to stand out I'll keep the wings smooth and easy, so no design on them. Also I think too much will make the model's look to uneasy. I plan to make the heads blue/green.

    So... been a whil but I finally managed to finish 60 Skinks :)cool:).

    So here's one as an example, finished so far (yes I know... the shield(s) are still under construction)...

    20170219_125200.jpg

    and at another angle:

    20170219_125234.jpg

    I also nearly finished my Ripperdactyls:
    20170219_125057.jpg
    20170219_125122.jpg

    I'll redo the wings (I'll try to make them more skin tone/orange-ish. Unfortunately I messed one up as I didn't recognize I had purple paint on my glove...So sad. :D

    C&C as always welcome!

    I like the Skinks, they remind me of mine, except the red parts and that they are far more detailed.
    As for the Ripper: I'd love to hear which colors you used and in which order since I am planning to make some in a few weeks.

    Looking great so far, your rippers are cool and the skinks look fantastic, what are you doing with shields, red?

    Ripper wings look great as is, very fleshy and realistic. I found the wings on rippers and terradons to be super unforgiving when painting and it looks like you nailed it
