    Alright! After a few years of playing and loving AoS, I've finally worked up the courage to start painting! Here's my very first test Skink!

    20210421_232602.jpg 20210421_232618.jpg

    I learned a lot from just this one model. I was trying to follow the Contrast Skinks official guide on YouTube, but I believe I didn't wait long enough to put the darker color on the back. I also think I prefer just one thick coat of the Aethermatic Blue rather than two. I like the stronger light and dark color contrast.

    But speaking of Contrast... I'm so happy I decided to go with Contrast paints for my Lizardmen! They really do look amazing and the built-in wash effect really works great for these models. I expect I will be posting more in the very near future!

    Good start, nice colors.
    Keep up the good work.

    I like the color, what paint did you use for the base color?

    This is one of 10 Skinks I got from eBay and they were already primed White. I used Aethermatic Blue for the base, and Terradon Turquoise for the scales. Going to paint another one tonight!

    Here's a Red-Crested Skink Alpha I did today. I'm already happier with the way this guy turned out than the last one. It's crazy how much detail there can be even on such a small model, lol!

    Thank you, I think this is what I'm going to have to go for. Now I need to decided whether it's worth getting my own 3D printer...

    Mostly finished a Coatl. I'll probably use him as a Celestant Prime for some list experimentation.
