TrevytheGreat - Saurus Scar-Veteran

Post by TrevytheGreat » Mon Apr 06, 2009 7:20 pm

Well, here was a painting contest and I sure wasn't going to miss out.
This model was painted with a Regal Blue basecoat (over black primer, of course), followed by layered Ultramarines Blue and Ice Blue. Each scale was painted individually in the same scheme with the same technique. The Red of the shield and the horns was Scab Red, a black wash, Scab Red again, Red Gore followed by a highlight of Blood Red. The gold was Shining Gold a Chestnut Ink wash followed by a highlight of Shining Gold, then Golden Yellow and then a black wash to define the creases and make the gold look more aged. I really like the result.
This model has actually been in my Lizardmen army since it's inception around six or seven years ago, and has enjoyed three separate color schemes, including an all-yellow one for my Tlazcotl Host (looking back I now see how garish that color appeared :lol:)!
And for pictures...

It looks like his shield has nipples ;)

Which of course means I like it ;)

It's a nice piece, but I think some of the transitions are a little harsh... still a great looking model and I am sure a squad is incredible... if you have a completed squad I would love to see a pic.

I love the gold too.

Hehehe, Joe likes it ;)

This mini is painted to something better than tabletop quality but not much.
I agree with Joe that a squad would look awesome ;)
Kind Regards,

I did play the game a long time ago. Was the 'other' very active on those sites.
If not, it could well be that it was an account I created a while ago. This would make sense because Trevor is indeed my name.

I like the Skinks, I always have... wait... which one are skinks?

Ummm back to it though. I think you miss a little bit with Black weapons. If you painted them brown (the handles) and gold or silver for the tips, it would add a ton to the look of the squad. Maybe a little highlight on top of them too.
