    Hey guys! So my brother Shalken and I used to own about 10k points of Space Marines, but having moved out and given the models to our dad, we didn't have any models to paint. Just recently we decided to start a Lizardmen army, so here I'll be posting updates on what we have painted! :D

    For starters, we only got one box of Saurus. So here's the basecoat:

    We'll be doing a lot more, so stay tuned ;) Hope you guys will like them!

    By the way, I'm not sure if this thread should have been posted elsewhere, feel free to move it if it's in the wrong spot!

    Mmm I'm liking that dark green patterning, gives those core troops a bit more pop :) . Be sure to update when you finish the job!

    I've actually finished the model, but I'm in the middle of adding water effects so I'll have to wait a couple days perhaps until it's really done :p

    Water effects still aren't 100% dry, but everything else is finished. Many more saurus to come soon!

    It's an interesting change for sure! xD I found that paint was rubbing off more so due to me handling it and there being a lot more pointy parts. I'm definitely liking the story for Fantasy much more than 40k, with the end times and everything :)

    Yea, I find myself holding my saurus by the back spikes, base, and tail a lot,
    so I end up paintind those pointy metalic bits last.

    Well the realistic water dried, and I've learned a couple things! 1: It shrinks a LOT. 2: Don't put any of the undergrowth down until AFTER the water effects are finished, it soaks it all up and makes it really difficult to apply.

    Kind of unfortunate thing is that we're putting a lot of detail into each model, so it's gonna take us a long time to get this unit finished. xD If/when we do finish it, any suggestions on what models to get next? Skinks, Slann, Temple Guard? We're not gonna be playing the actual game any time soon (college assignments suck -_- ) so we're open to suggestions.

    I would do some skinks next,
    you are definately going to use them in your army somewhere.
    I like to save my characters as rewards for finishing a bunch of core models.

    Finished model looks good! I would also recommend skinks, less because of how many you need though and more of because I like their models a lot.
