Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Still struggling to get back into painting, So I took a step backwards totally re-vamped my C series Red Dragon, stripped, re-built, and splashed a bit of paint about, on the whole very happy with the result

Really like what you’ve done there. Strong, bold colours fits the mini really well. Love the eye detail as well. Also big fan of the blue oriental dragon. Much prefer these dragons the the later mid 90’s dragons, these ones seem to have much more character

Quite nicely done! I haven't touched my dragon collection in forever. Should perhaps finish up another and maybe fix the damaged blue.

Thanks for the kind comments, yes, these and their friends should make it to BOYL for the Lustria game on Friday, or at least that's the plan. Yes, those are Foundry Pygmys in he background of one of the Dragon photos - something else on the to do list :lol: :lol: :lol:
Watch this space as more of these Lizard types should get daubed with paint this weekend 8-)

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

As stated last week, the next batch has duly made it to the varnish stage, the next batch may take a bit longer as half of them are in the bath and the others are in what of some running repairs. Hopefully, if, I get them all done in time this will provide me with quite a substantial cavalry wing to add to my Slann / Lizardman army. 8-) 8-) 8-)

As ever my pictures do my painting no favors

Enjoy

Question to the Forum - as both the lizardman & coldone have armour saves within their normal profiles, at what point do you start deducting movement for armour saves?

Lovely set of lizards there. How have you collected so many!!? On the armour save front, surely creatures that have a save as part of their core characteristics wouldn’t take a penalty?

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Thank you, as for the number of models I rationalized my collection about twenty years ago specializing in just a few races - O&G, Slann/Lizardmen & Dark Elves all other stuff is just reconstituted armies from other periods (ancients, Renaissance etc.) and I did a deal with a chap by the name of Geoff Freeman who specialized in old Citadel, Geoff has disappeared off the face of the plant (I'm saying nothing, but if I did ever meet him again I'm sure the conversation would be robust) anyway obviously a considerable amount of lead was exchange which has left me with a considerable collection of figures for the named races, plus whatever I've added via Ebay.

As for the armour save - so would I, but I think it wish to ask - as this would leave these little chaps with a save of 4+ without any movement restrictions (Lizardman +1, Coldone +1 & mount +1) add a shield and light armour and you have a save of 2+ for only one inch of lost movement - nasty. No point in giving them heavy armour as ones always fail.
