Hi all =D

Just reserving a spot of sorts for my Lizardmen Painting Log!

So everyone's updated, I've got the following coming to me via mail order -

Army Book
9 Terradons
4 Stegadons
2 Slann
Skink Box
Old Blood on Carnosaur
2 Old Blood on Foot
4 x Salamanders
3 x Battalions

All in all, it comes to around 5.5k points without upgrades or frills, so a decent slab of Lizards I feel ^_^

I'm planning on swamping up the bases (Have ordered some moss type grass, water effects and some Cat tails [I think that's what they're called!])
And having a colour scheme along the lines of the following -

So red scales + black skin, with a glossy varnish to help with the 'poison' look.

Soon as the models arrive I'll be throwing up some test images to see what people think, and whether or not I like it! I might end up swapping the red out for a yellow, but we'll see how we go =D

Hope to see everyone around =D
And wish me luck!

Howdy all!

Long time no update - But my stuff has finally arrived, so begins the mad dash to assemble it all!

And we begin!

First off - Everything as it stands. Finally, after weeks of waiting, my order arrived, dispensing the following onto my lounge!

My wallet however, wasn't as happy =(

Perhaps I did go a little overboard with my purchases?

The Kitty Mascot (Salem), was not impressed -

In case anyone was curious, I purchased -
2 x Slann
1 x Old Blood on Carnosaur
2 x Scar Vets on Foot
4 x Stegadons
1 x Skink Box
3 x Battalions
9 x Terradon Riders

A fairly hefty lump, but I've never been one to do things in halves!

Started on the first Battalion -

And that's it so far!
I've since completed the Steg (Left the parts loose so I can chop and change what I want on his back), and have started work on the Carnosaur, so I'll throw those photo's up tonight once I'm done :)

My goal - to have 2250 points constructed before the weekend for my game with my mate playing High Elves.

Wish me luck!

awesome man i wish i could buy all that in one go......i am also doing a swamp theme on my skaven by making the back ranks being half submerged in the swamp.
better units and front ranks are on dry land every later rank and sucky unit (slaves) are halfsubmerged or at least all feet in the water
