    Hahaha, thank you, I wish that was my tabletop standard. I spend a lot of time on characters, not so much on rank and file figures, which can be seen on my warriors. I haven't really figured out a good tabletop standard for my army, and that's taking a toll on my overall painting time because I tend to paint troops in a low standard only to look at them and say "you guys deserve better than that!" and then start evaluating and improving what was supposed to be a finished paint job :confused:

    Anyway, coming from you, the encouraging words mean a lot, thanks man!

    Looks like I'm finally making some steady progress, here's a WIP picture of my chameleon skinks conversion:

    Sorry for the terrible background. As usual, C&C are welcome and encouraged!

    Looks great! Have you worked out your spray primer woes? I recognized the gritty finish from far too many of my early models.

    As guys already mentioned, those look just sweet. What putty are you using?

    Thank you! It's PLASTEPSA's epoxy putty, it's made here in Mexico. I thought it didn't hold detail very well, but it turns out I just wasn't giving it enough time to partially cure. Boy this hobby sure has lots of things to learn!

    Try 50/50 Greenstuff(it may be even the cheap one) with Magic Sculpt. It is just perfect ;)

    Your chameleon conversions look very simple to make, I need to get some skinks and use a similar method sometime. I use clay most of the time, only problem is it gets brittle if it doesn't cure right. Also used resin.

    I also still like that oldblood with the shield, I like how you painted the glyphs green.

    I've finally completed the chameleons' unit (well, technically two 5 man units), I'll post the whole unit tomorrow but here's a sample :D

    Can't wait to show you guys the whole unit, each skink has a different crest and unique pose, I'm glad my first conversions turned out so much better than I expected

    I tried my best to do some OSL out of the sunbolt gauntlet and a nebula effect on the blade of realities, what do you think?

    Nicely done. :D
    although I think your Nebula could use some
    brighter blue patches to help it stand out a little more.

    Yep, you're absolutely right. It needs brighter areas, thank you!
