Lizardmen Painting Blog 6 - Finished!
I have finally completed the Kroxigor, he was originally one of the new Fantasy Krox's but i didn't like his pose to gave him arms from a plastic rat ogre with an ogre ironfist. His loincloth is from ogres as well.

I removed all the fur from the RO arms and sculpted some scales on. The scales on the top of the right arm were my 1st attempt and not as good as those on the hand and wrist or the left arm.

I'm really pleased with how the colour for the scales turned out, it was quite simple to do using some purple, black and red washes then some simple highlights. I wanted him to be a little darker than the saurus.

All i need to do now is add a few touches, take a bunch more photos and the team is complete. Hopefully I'll be able to post the models to Purp on saturday.







Sililbili is made from the Lizardmen Temple Guard champion model with lots of extra bits and shoulder pads from an Orc warrior whilst the loin cloth is from an Ork Nob.

I really like how reversing the colour scheme has worked for the 2 stars, it makes them stand out but still fit in with the team and is why i like to limit the colours of BB teams. I should really have given him bone shoulder pads but the deep red worked much better with the bronze edging and the number transfers are white anyway.





I wanted to avoid the boring blue but still make them "realistic" and I do like how keeping it to a few colours works.

Purplegoo wanted bigger bases on them so i have addes some extra details such as swampy water, reeds, bushes and glyphs so they look like the games are played in Lustria.

I tried to take a pic of all 6 but they ended being either 1/2 blurry or too small to see detail so have done them in batches of 3.




2nd batch



There are only 3 models I have only taken pics of 3 of them. Aside from the bases and some colour variation the skinks are all the same since they don't live that long anyway. The major attention will be given to the Saurus, Krox and stars.

Originally i was going to do both stars as albinos with white skin and scales but on the test model it looked a bit dull so instead i'll reverse the colour scheme. Hemlock has white skin and red scales, his colour scheme is a bit brighter than the rest of the team to make him stand out. He's converted from a fantasy skink with his sickle and shield removed. I've added a stone knife, shoulder pads and a loin cloth to make him fit the rest of the team and look a bit more BB.

As Purp wants the saurus on big bases i did the same for him and added a bit of scenery. He will make a good head coach if he's not being used in the game.





The skink bases have some small pools of dirty water and reeds added to make it look like they are playing in a swampy water logged pitch. I varied their skin tones a bit to make them more interesting.

Awesome job spubbbba, as usual. Those are some particularly good lizards.

Wish I could paint like that...
