After recieving my first Lizardmen Battalion Box I started to paint and assemble the lot. I recently got the bright idea to share some of my work for those trying to figure out what to do with their Lizardmen. Note that I make no claim beyond being a mediocre painter and everyone should feel free, indeed encouraged, to try their own ways and paints. I'll try to outline the colours and technics I've used, any who feel like helping with hints and suggestions please go ahead.
Currently I'm painting the Saurus Cavalry, all 8 of them. I decided to prime them in black(both riders and steeds) and paint the riders on the sprues. At least the undercoat and the first layers of highlight. I think I'm going to make the Cold ones green with bright red Saurus on top.
First order of buisness so far: primer. Chaos black on a can, basic stuff. Once that had dried it's time for the first layer of paint: thinned Red Gore, making it into a very dark brownish base colour. Next a quick layer of Blood red, going to need a couple of swabs of this once before it's finished.
The Cold Ones are primed black, with Dark Angels Green on top and Snot Green for highlights. Not quite there yet even though I've done one testcase, albeit a bit sloppy.
Pictures so far:
