    Hello and welcome to my new thread.
    I have only recently started to paint my army after years of most of it sitting there collecting dust (or not even built). I'm very slow at the painting side of the hobby and don't get tons of time to commit to it, so updates may be few and far between.
    I'll post pics of the 4 models that I have completed so far below. Comments and criticism welcome and I hope you enjoy my lizards :).

    Here are the 4 models that I've managed to paint to a reasonable standard so far:

    Next I'm planning to paint the rest of my built Skinks and Saurus, then move on to either Temple Guard, a Basti or a Steg.

    Looks like a nice little scheme you have there :) Stay motivated and try to juts chip away at it, I always find painting blobs of infantry the hardest part of painting.

    Purple and bright blue/turquoise...
    Haven't seen that combo in a while, looks really good!

    Thank you :) I might start work on Dino whilst working on the infantry to try and break it up a bit.

    Thanks for the feedback :) I tried out a few colour combos but this one just stuck with me for some reason.

    Unfortunately I've been making very slow progress and haven't managed to finish any other models yet. I have painted up some test shields, plus build a steg and convert a chameleon skink.

    Good job:artist:

    I Love the contrast between the shields and the purple/blue beasties. Well chosen!

    Thanks @Imrahil . I spent quite a while trying stuff out and using the colour wheel to settle on the colours.

    Yesterday I managed to finish of the 5 saurus that I was painting (see pics). I've also started building my stegadon howdah and base coating the beast itself.
    Also check out the close ups of my obsidian spear tips. IMG_20190607_231826603.jpg IMG_20190607_231826603.jpg IMG_20190607_231854743.jpg

    Nice Saurus Warriors, love your colorscheme.
    Good work on the spear tips.

    So I've base coated my stegadon's skin a crimson colour: IMG_20190615_203531858.jpg

    I'm undecided on what colour to paint the scaled areas. Anybody got any ideas?

    Looking good. The brown spots help to make the red less "in your face".

    Slow progress for the last few weeks unfortunately, illness and watching the Women's World Cup got in the way haha. I have managed to paint a few more Saurus with spears and built a Carnosaur though. I'm hoping to power through the rest of the Saurus unit soon and then base them. Wish me luck!

    Apologies for the lack of updates, I've been struggling to make the time to do much hobby stuff recently.

    I've managed to do a tiny bit of work on my Stegadon and have finished another 10 Saurus including the command (pics below).
    26 Saurus down, only another 14 to go (for this one unit haha).
