    Thank you, I really like how the units looked ranked up. Loved WH fantasy too much.

    And there is no way I am ever going to go back and rebase them all.

    Red Saurus are complete.

    They are much tighter on the base now, didn't realize how much the paint would do that. But they turned out great, first Lizardmen regiment that I have completely based!

    One saurus unit down, 3 to go!

    Also a shot of the completed saurus unit fillers:

    warden201704_saurus unit fillers.jpg

    The tower is a bit large, so I may make a new one to replace it and relegate this one to scenery.

    Other ideas I had for saurus unit fillers (ideas from the Lustrian campaign book):

    - Carniverous plants
    - Curse Marker (some skulls mounted on sticks)
    - Native traps (like a bear trap, but made by lizardmen)
    - Quicksand
    - Another one that looks like a pile of lizardmen treasure
    - Jungle Swarm on a larger base?

    They look great all based and ready to go. A lot of unit fillers I have seen were mostly jungle plants. The totems look great, but you could put a supply cart with a Skink clerk handing out weapons and shields. Tied up or caged captives if you have a few other models from other armies. Or even just a cage for the eventuality of capturing treasure hunters.

    There was a suspicious package placed on my doorstep today... but it turned out to be my prize for tying for 3rd place in the Golden Serpent contest last year!

    Took a picture in front of my troglodon entry:

    Thank you @The Red Devil for putting on such a fantastic competition!

    Work has commenced on basing my next two units of saurus warriors (the two with spears). Here is the pre-shot to show you what I am working with.

    warden201705_black and yellow saurus WIP 01.jpg

    To fill in the gaps I created two more unit fillers, both based on ideas from the Lustrian Campaign book.
    Lots of great ideas here. I decided to go with the "curse marker" with the severed heads option, along with the "native traps."
    warden201705_unit fillers 01.jpg

    Very simple to do, with extra pieces I had lying around, plus a few cast skulls and a cast orc head (the white resin pieces)

    warden201705_unit fillers 02.jpg
    Curse Marker, complete with skulls and shrunken heads:

    warden201705_unit fillers 03.jpg

    "native" trap, made from a Lizardman medallion and two extra saurus weapons:

    Those markers are superb. Would be great objective markers or even condition markers.

    Exactly what I was thinking they could double as in some games, that is why I eventually hope to make several more of them.

    More updates: bases have been sanded and painted brown.

    Black Saurus of Quetzl:

    Yellow Saurus of Tlazcotl:

    Did an experiment based on the way the trap was painted in the book, really tried to make the metal look "bronzed" with a blue-green wash that I have never attempted before. Looks successful!

    warden201705_unit fillers 05.jpg


    And started painting the skulls. The ork is missing most of his teeth, but that's fine because its head is on a stick anyway. Makes the teeth look rotted out.

    You can see the Wood Elf head on the back of this one now:

    New set of pictures for the next part of the process- adding more color to the brown bases. All that is left at this point is adding jungle leaves (which is done) I just need to upload those pictures.

    Really nice unitfillers/markers... looking good with those plants added... have the say that I thought the one with the trap was a little empty... but now I think it's the one I like best! ;):cool:

    By the way... healthy thing to use the burger king vouchers the way you do... don't know if I could do it without taking one or two to the restaurant...;)

    Both the black and yellow saurus are now completely based.

    warden201705_black and yellow saurus complete.jpg


    Black Saurus of the Tazamul Caves:

    warden201705_black saurus complete 01.jpg
    warden201705_black saurus complete 02.jpg

    warden201705_black saurus complete 03.jpg

    warden201705_black saurus complete 04.jpg

    Added a small medallion to the base of this one. Back when I first made this unit, this model was a test model, so he is painted slightly differently from all the others (black painted scales, while the rest are actually just a black wash).

    warden201705_black saurus complete 05.jpg

    Yellow Saurus of the Xibalba Falls:

    warden201705_yellow saurus complete 01.jpg
    warden201705_yellow saurus complete 02.jpg

    warden201705_yellow saurus complete 03.jpg

    Standard bearer also has a clay snake on his base. I may start adding more of these on future unit bases.

    warden201705_yellow saurus complete 04.jpg


    Got three units of saurus complete now; only one last unit of saurus infantry and the temple guard to do before moving on to the rest of the army.

    Look much better with the cheap jungle plants.

    Looks really good! You unitfillers are really amazing and inspiring...
    Will have to start making some mini terrain pieces, too. ;)
