I thought i'd dive into AoS2 with one of my favourite armies (everyone loves Orcs & Goblins right?) ever since first finding Warhammer through the Lizardmen/Brettonia box set. It was a tough choice between these lovable lizards and my other love, Orcs & Goblins, but since they're now split into at least four/five different factions from my old fantasy army, i thought it would be best to start fresh. I'm also wanting an excuse to paint something bright and colourful after months of painting Death Guard for 40k! So ive now landed with: 2x Start Collecting boxes (I'll be making a Carnosaur, Oldblood/Sunblood on foot, Troglodon and a second Skink Starpriest from this) 1x Skink box 1x Skink Starpriest 1x Bastiladon 1x Ripperdactyl box Now for the main point of this log... Taking inspiration from various tropical frogs! Saurus inspiration: This should be relatively easy, although slightly counter intuitive to the usual lighter underbelly of lizards. Im thinking of painting some scales black but leaving space, as in the image below, rather than painting all scales black. Skink inspiriation: I was originally going to use this for my Slann since the hands are more prominent on the model, but i liked it too much to use it on just one model. Mind you, after starting this scheme i get the feeling im going to regret airbrushing individual skink hands... A lot more effort than i think Skinks are going to be worth! I do need to remember to keep it simple as well due to the amount of these im probably going to paint and my attention span. So i think i'll skip doing the lighter under body and use the blue sections of the legs as the head frill colour instead. Although, I'm stumped as to what colour the scale sections should be at the moment.
