New guy here, long time lurker, etc. etc. I've been recently convinced to show some pictures of my army (so far). I'm running a heavily narrative driven campaign, and based my army on Tlaxtlan - the city of the moon, giving the lizards a strong nocturnal theme. I chose a predominant purple skin colour, taking reference from pictures of the night sky and sunsets to counter the sky-blue theme of Games Workshop's studio army. I used to do the hobby in my teens, and when I started up again this Febuary I realised I had lost all my old painting skills. It's been a lot of hard work to regain them, and I think I have now well surpassed what I thought I could do. However, that's not for me to judge, so on with the pictures already! Here's some examples of different spawnings of skinks. I use different colours for tails, scales and crests for different units. It's fun to add extra splashes of colour for variety, while still retaining the purple 'uniform'. My saurus have orange rings around their eyes to make them look more fierce. Is it warpaint, or is it natural? who knows. I was inspired by crocodile skinks (Triblonotus gracilis). My mixed unit of kroxigors and skinks is my favourite to play with. I just bought a third, and enough skinks to make it a horde! One of the rules of our campaign states that when a lord or hero dies, they can't be used in a future game. These two are dead. The chief, Tincto died in his first game! Good job he only took a couple of hours to paint. I spent all year making these cavalry models (6 in total), and they were run down after fleeing from Empire state troops in their first game. I've never had Saurus flee! They didn't cause a single wound either, grr. They look quite nice though. I was so used to painting exotic colour schemes I had to force myself to tone it down a little when it came to the Stegadon. I went for a plain green. With the rest of the army so dark in tone, I made my Slann a lot brighter to stand out. His pale skin is suitably moon-like. I also like the jade armour of the temple guard. My general. I saw an image in my head and just did it. I don't get proud at much, but I love this thing. I gave the oldblood an igaunid appearance, with a long tail and a dewlap under his chin. He's converted from a daemon model, and I prefer the riding pose better to Kroq Gar's 'bucking bronco' style. I tried to give him a more controlled disposition. He's so calm a butterfly has alighted on his weapon, and the carnosaur has a prowling, predatory feel to it. For the carnosaur's colour I went for a tiger/baby alligator combo. I entered him into Golden Demon this year, where he made it to the final round.... ...and this one did'nt make it past the first. I found it strange that my gaming piece did well, yet a diorama I made especially for the competition didn't. It was a great day, a huge ego boost. I have more pictures up my sleeve for another time.
