    Hey all! Here I'll be posting what updates I do with my Seraphon army, and hopefully I will end up with a nice force of star-lizards. Right now all I have to show you is unpainted stuff, mostly because I have not been able to get a nice setup to take gooooood photos of the finished stuff, but I hope to do so soon.

    I like to convert and customize my miniatures a lot, so expect kitbashing. If you have any question about where a piece is from or how I made some conversion, feel free to ask =). My skill with greenstuff is not the best but I hope to improve over time, and I have seen that there are some amazing sculptors around, so I'll be happy to get as much feedback as possible from everyone!

    So, here it comes (Warning, pic heavy).

    IMG-20171202-WA0005.jpg

    Some Saurus Guard (not much conversion here, just some adornments and top blades for the halberds, from the Saurus Warriors spears).

    IMG-20171202-WA0031.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0008.jpg

    A couple Saurus knights, just with some GS to fill gaps between the cold ones and the saddles, and some sculpting work on their waist (I dislike how "slim" the Saurus models are, so I kinda bulk them up a bit with sashes and plaques around their waists). Also I use the tails of our actual (and derpy) cold ones for the riders, I think it gives them a little more weight and balance.

    IMG-20171202-WA0025.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0026.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0024.jpg

    Three Terradon/Ripperdactyl riders, the ripper's tails added to the terradons. I like how it changes their silhouette a lot. For the riders mostly used the rippers, I hope I can proxy them as whatever I need to =P. (I dont really like the ripper's claws or heads, a bit goofy for my taste).

    IMG-20171202-WA0028.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0027.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0021.jpg

    First Stegadon, just bow on this one. The throne for the alpha uses bits from the Saurus Guard, not really any conversion work on this one.

    Some more pics (sorry for the quality, but my phone camera is the best I have xD).

    IMG-20171202-WA0014.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0017.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0015.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0016.jpg

    Magnetized Stegadon with blowpipes or EOTG. Wanted to give this one a bit more movement, ended up repositioning 3 of the legs to give the impressions it is charging towards the enemy. Quite pleased with how he turned out.

    IMG-20171202-WA0029.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0030.jpg

    Standard Sunblood and Eternity Warden.

    IMG-20171202-WA0011.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0023.jpg

    And here is my skink priest/starpriest converted from the skink oracle. The staff is made from the spear for the oldblood/scarvet on carno, a top standard piece from guard and a banner from the knights sprue.

    And last batch of images, my three final characters for now.

    IMG-20171202-WA0006.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0007.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0010.jpg

    Scarvet on cold one, made from the plastic oldblood on foot with a carno rider head and some more bits here and there.

    IMG-20171202-WA0018.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0019.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0022.jpg IMG-20171202-WA0012.jpg
    Scarvet on carno. A bit of repositioning on the left hand and right leg, also used the troglodon tail for more variation. Gave him a collar from the trog too, and changed up the position of the spikes on the throne.

    IMG-20171202-WA0020.jpg

    And last is a WIP kitbash for an oldblood on foot, from the spare bits of the carno rider, a carno tail, saurus guard shield and some spikes and horns trimmed from a stegadon crest.

    Hope you like it!!

    Thanks Crowsfoot, and yeah, a lot of painting to do!

    Here goes the finished Oldblood on foot. First time sculpting scales, I am pretty happy with how it turned out in the end. Greyscale images to hide GS work =P. You can see the original photos below.

    I hope to be able to post some images of the miniatures I have finished painting and basing (10 warriors, 5 knights and a carno) later today or tomorrow.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Aginor =)
    Finally I took some photos of my painted stuff!! Not the best photos around, still trying to focus right (and that home made setup sucks xD). Damm cameras. So, 10 warriors, 5 knights and an oldblood on carno!

    I'm going on vacation now until sunday, so I wont be posting any updates, but I'll talk a bit about why I chose that colour scheme when I return.

    Cheers everyone!

    Excellent stuff ;)

    I really like the strong contrast between your colours, striking but yet warming, the spot highlight really help bring them to life and I really like the worn drum skin.

    The reds and pinks of your riders tie in nicely with the red/pink of the open mouths of their mounts, the jade weapons tie in with the mounts scales really well done, same with your Carny, really like the scheme.

    Ok I see you definitely don't need painting advice from me as your stuff is a lot better than mine.
    Good work!

    First off, thank you guys for the comments!

    I plan to give all my Seraphon warpaints, in yellow and red, with different patterns and styles depending on the unit. For example the warriors have red markings on their crests/face and a line with some geometric pattern going down both sides of their backs, and a yellow stripe on their snout (I marked the alpha different by adding that yellow pattern to the crest too). The knights have red and yellow stripes on their backs, and markings of both colours on the crests. For the skinks im thinking about face paint and mostly designs on their backs too.

    I got inspired to do it from playing TW Warhammer 2 (love the style they went for with our beloved lizards). Glad you like it =)

    So, finally I came back from vacation and I have begun work on the first 5 strong Guard unit, and the skink Priest.

    I also got myself a Slann Starmaster off ebay (one must always have a toad =P).

    Once I get these painted ill move on to the three Terradons/rippers. I'm still doubting about a colour scheme for the terradons, I thought about doing something like this (which is a quite traditional colour scheme):

    Or... going more alien-like with something inspired from Avatar:

    I would love to know your opinions!

    Cheers!

    Great work!
    About the Terradons I think I like the second one best.
