Been a while since I posted anything I know and the move to Australia certainly slowed things up.
So anyways, after I managed to botch the paint job on the Oxayotl sculpt I did with under watered ink layer and in true style of procrastination I have been getting bugged by my old Nakai sculpt.
Things that have been bugging me:
The pose: Ok so it's at the end of a sweaping motion, it still looks too bland, someone even commented that it looked like he was doing lunges as a warm up before fighting
The Axe: Over complicated, and the edges are not as sharp as they could have been and it's too big and just doesn't fit imho.
The head: Mouth closed, nothing says dramatic pose like a big T-rex sized Kroxigor roaring before making your knights 2+ armour save worthless
Lack of decorations: I've been looking at a lot of the fifth edition artwork for Lizardmen as well as Incan and Aztec armour and even feather head dresses for ideas.
So what's new?
I thought about a Vermin lord style of pose, only axe raised more threateningly and finger point towards the enemy while roaring out a challenge, something that really looks threatening. The design for the Axe will be similar to the spiked ball axe I did on one of my Kroxigor conversion/sculpts (can provide pic if needed) only give the design a little more detail.
I will have some pics up soonish, I have already done the base layer for the head (I figured that would be a good place to start) and work has already begun on the inside of the mouth and the tongue.
