    Hey guys. Im new to the boards...I've been playing Lizardmen for about 3-4 years now. I havent painted a whole lot of my army, but I wanted to get your opinions on what I have painted currently.

    Picture020-1.jpg

    This is my unit of Kroxigors.

    Picture022-2.jpg

    This is my unit of Saurus Warriors

    Picture017-1.jpg

    Finally this is my unit of Saurus Calvary.

    I also have painted a unit of Skinks but I have only located a few. Due to not playing in 6 months or so some of them have lost limbs being moved around in boxes and not being fixed lol. I'm working on that though.

    Not bad, they are neatly painted,
    no real highlights or shading though,
    so a wash of delvin mud or something similar
    would make them look a lot better with only a tiny effort.

    Jajaja n810 took the words out of my mouth :) It is very clean painting but I think that some highlights/shading wound definitely bring the models a little more depth.

    The colors are nice :) A little too 'Superman' for me but still very nice. The bases on the Cold One Cavalry kind of hide the awesome green mounts you have though. Maybe change their bases so that the green on the mounts stands out a little more (i'm really only referring to the green paint around the edges, maybe make it an earth-tone or something that would still look in place). Good work! Keep it up :D

    I do appreciate the advice. I was just looking for a few tips. The only pieces I had painted (first time ever painting any sort of miniature) was a small unit of Empire Spearmen (6th edition) which are completely undetailed. I plan on putting quite a bit more of detail and work into my next units I paint and will use the advice you guys have given. Thanks!

    I agree with the washing and highlighting comments, but it is definitely a good start.

    Also, I noticed some mold lines like on the cold ones heads.

    dont "highlight" cos its far too fiddly, i cheat by drybrusing everything, makes for a nice "cartoony" feel whic your already kind of have with the block colours, but drybrushing is a nice way to add depth without much effort, the other is inkin/washes but others have said that


    i LOVE your cold ones :D
