    hey all! I'm going to be painting up my first army and thought I would document my progress here :)
    I've owned these models for allmost a year without doing much but now finding some time to paint :)
    Going for a purple skin and pink scales just to be different .
    Having gone down the shop and been shown some basics likes washing and dry brushing I think I can get started :) here's my first attempts .
    Turns out I'm a poor photographer:)

    Not bad for your first attempt, don't fall into the trap most new painters do and that is applying lots of different colour's try to keep to around 5 this will help keep the model consistent and more natural, if space lizards can be natural.

    If you have a smart phone download the GW painting app

    Not a bad start at all. When you said pink I couldn't really imagine it but they look pretty good already.

    Wow, these look super cool. I have never thought about painting them pink and purple, it looks really cool though. Drybrushing and shading are easy ways to improve your minis massivly, so continue doing that. Keep on the good work, and keep us updated please.

    are you looking at making a lighter pink eventually? or more muted with washes.

    also, are the teeth picked out with a lighter purple? It seems like it, however I would suggest a bone or white for the contrast. I'd also reccomend white for the eyes due to the same. if you find the white/bone isn't covering well, I'd suggest a light under layer of brown.

    I might try a brighter pink further down the line but have a pretty limited selection of paints atm.


    Haven't got round to the teeth yet. Been paining all the skin then scales in bulk. Its mind numbing :p
