    Het guys, this is my first post here even though I’ve been a member for almost a year. In this thread I’m going to post my Seraphon conversions that I’ll make from my pretty big collection of old toys.

    I found this guy who looks already pretty Seraphon like, Im going to paint him up and place him on a base. Any ideas what I can use him as? 449316E9-D3EC-4E7C-9DAE-0470F8CDB402.jpeg

    I have this figure and I really love him. He's labelled as a Dragon Mutant by the company that makes him (Papo) but I think he looks far more like a Lizardfolk warrior or in this case a Lizardman. @Scalenex posted a thread here where someone painted and converted one of these up as a giant Saurus Warrior and used him as a Dread Saurian, which is a great way to save oodles of cash and actually looks more like the original Monstrous Arcanum artwork than the actual GW model. I'm not sure GW would appreciate it though as they're apparently pretty sniffy about using non-GW minis in GW events. Anyway, a great way to convert the biggest Lizardmen monster in the game.

    Using him as a dread saurian might actually be great, would never pay that much for a model anyway. I think I’ll leave him without a weapon then, thanks for the idea!

    Base colours are on, I’m thinking about giving him pale skin on the underside of his body to make him look like a crocodile, thoughts? C03F18DE-3591-412B-B048-B21B7DA0394D.jpeg

    Underbelly pale skin is always a good choice, adds some variation and naturalism.

    Here's my standard light underbellly method
    Usually, Rakarth flesh blended into the main skin colour (drybrushing works good if you alternate drybrush with proper paint layers) is a good start. Then use a unifying wash all over the dark and light parts of the skin(Say, Coelia Greenshade for example in your case), then drybrush and then layer Rakarth again on top and work your way up to something like Pallid Wych Flesh.

    This way the diffecence in skin tones is evident but the transition is very smooth, with the green shadows and blendincs unifying your work.


    I would also add some variation on the back and/or head.
    Try considering blue and red or red and black as second and tertiary accent colours.

    As you can see your idea is spot on, here he is as a Dread ;)
