    Afternoon all,

    You may have seen my list post, highlighting that my gaming group (mainly Blood Bowl) are branching out in to 6th ed WFB. After toying around with different armies, I settle on putting together a Lizard man army. There were two reasons for this:-

    1) Saurus and Skinks were some of the very first models I ever bought when I first got in to wargaming.
    2) With models still readily available, I didnt think it would be too expensive to put an army together.

    I found a handful of Saurus in my DND box, so I decided to trip them and try out some colour schemes.

    I went through:-

    Red and Blue
    Yellow and Purple
    Orange and Blue

    And wasnt keen on any of them.

    A friend of mine sent me a picture of a chameleon which led to the following paint scheme, which I think I am going to stick with as I really like it (the painting isnt the best!)

    And finally here is one with a very simple basing scheme as well. I will probably strip the base off this when I come to do the full unit and try to come up with a simple, but effective jungle or swamp scheme. Yes, one of the Saurus is missing a head!

    Next up is another 3 of these which I have currently soaking to be stripped and I will be sure to post my progress here!

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read.

    Reinforcements have arrived!

    After scouring eBay for quite a while, i pulled the trigger on some lizardmen reinforcements!

    Turns out it was a big box of Saurus and Skinks! I got enough for 4 x 12 units of skinks (2 x Blowpipe, 2 x Javelin) and enough Saurus to flesh out 2 units of 25 with hand weapons and shields with 5 left over with spears. Clearly this means I need more Saurus!

    It gives me the bulk of my 1k list, which I will be starting with whilst I learn the game. Its currently missing some terradons, which are now on their way, but it doesnt look like much on the table!

    I also managed to pinch a couple of hours to paint, which isnt easy with two young children but it allowed me to lay down the basecoats on the 20 Saurus which form the core of my army.

    A lot need a second coat, as they have been painted from a black undercoat, but im happy with the way they are looking at the moment and once finished will be around a third of my 1k army done!

    Next up is creating some fluff and background around them.

    Just a small update at this stage, I have completed my first skink priest, apart from a couple of touch ups and a head I realised I hadnt painted when I uploaded the pics lDfIAHle.jpg HssA9mUM.jpg
