    Hey there evreyone, been lurking around this site for the last few weeks and thought it was time to share a bit of what I've been up to recently, I'm pretty new to the whole world of painting minis and any tips or advice is much appreciated, spent the last few days working on my stego that I've had laying around for a while (been to scared to attempt to paint him until recently) and am pretty pleased with the results, also have a whole lizardmen army on the way and some time off work around the corner so more updates to come in a few weeks time :) as I said before I'm pretty new so any help for a newb like me is always handy! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Looks good!! Painting-advice-wise you asked... I don´t know, I see you used shades, I might suggest watching out for full paint coverage with the golds, metallic paints tend to shrink and sometimes they don´t cover all the area.
    But otherwise excellent done!! Post more pics of your army!! :snaphappy::snaphappy::snaphappy:

    Good luck with that horde of grey!

    Love your stegadon. Especially the gold work and the bloody horns. And the scales transition from dark grey to lighter green-grey color, almost rusty or minty. Everything about the stegadon really. And great work on the carnosaur so far.

    Well done! :vulcan:

    The terradons are looking great, I likethe bronze wings! Looks quite cool.

    Slaughter brute is looking good too. Need a couple of washes to bring out some detail and a bit of dry brushing. I definitely like the blue and green tongue!
    Should be able to find lots of turorial videos on the wash and dry brush techniques to really make the details pop.
