Hello and welcome to my second project log!
My previous log was a grubby swamp ogre log with a rather ‘marmite’ love it or hate it grubby paint scheme. I’ve now just moved house and have yet to uncover a lot of my painting gear and jointly inspired by the new selection of paints available I’ve decided to try something a bit different.
This time rather than starting with a background idea I’m starting with a box of skinks and an aim to create a vibrant – relatively clean – colour scheme. I’m not working to an army list as, for one reason, I only own the 5th edition army book.
So, here’s my first skink:
Only two things are left to do. The javelin shaft will be a light wood colour (probably something along the lines of bleached bone + snakebite leather) but I need to buy/find the necessary paints. He also requires a shield and I intend to use the old Saurus shields from the 5th edition Warhammer box set (which I need to find amongst my boxes!) which will be painted bronze. One of these can be seen held by a gnoblar in the third post of my previous blog.
Aside from the box of skinks I’ve dug out an OOP kroxigor and Inxi-Huinzi on Cold One, which according to the yellowing receipt I bought on 1st June 2000 for £6; poor chap’s desperate for a paint job!
Anyways, enough of a ramble – feedback’s welcome and encouraged!
