Progressing slowly, could put in a small showing, but not really got anything planned for them, though a small contingent in the dungeon crawl might prove interesting! But I was think more Vikings :D

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

As previously stated the latest batch Of Lizardmen Coldone riders has progressed more slowly than the last two due to the running repairs to replace broken spears, swords and re-pinning broken limbs etc. so, here's a progress shot of the painted mounts and the riders with my initial daubing of paint :lol: these will act a standard bearers, hopefully all should be completed by the weekend, when I'll start the Troglodytes.

Enjoy

Looking good! I like the rhythm of the different colors to the mounts. Good distribution. Should look neat on a table. :)

Thanks for the kind comments, here's their latest progress, just received their first coat of varnish, if I get the chance over the weekend I'll take some unit shots, to give some impression of how they look altogether. In third edition these weight in at around fifty points a piece, but with their stench and causing fear their opponents suffer at least a minus two to hit in combat, in addition to the multiple attacks from the mount, if, you can get them to charge their hard to beat - especially as their also immune to psychology! 8-)

I've also slapped a bit of paint on a snake, which I intend to use as a simple jungle beasty, whilst I was waiting for the paint to dry on the troglodytes, who should be finished by the end of this weekend :D

Ugh, that snake makes me feel all nauseous and shuddery... which is a tribute to the painting! I don't do well around snakes... Keep up the good work Paul.

Re: Golgfag1's preparation for BOYL 2019

Thanks chaps,

The snakes caught my eye last year at Salute, but I held-off the temptation of the spontaneous purchase then, but not this year - so now have two packets, each containing two models - one with wings and the two headed version you see here, (the winged version is a complete *%^£$%" to assemble) their now sat at the side of my table waiting for those opportunities where you have a natural break in whatever you're doing to have a little paint applied occasionally.

Enjoy

OK, here's the progress on the troglodytes so far this weekend, fairly mono-paint job as they'll be mixed in with a fairly colourful set of figures I've already painted.

Those cold ones are great, fantastic colours. But then the troglodytes are also great - sad loss when these all left the Warhammer world. Kroxigors just aren't the same

Ah, Kroxigors, a different time and thus a different beast, to add a bit of bite to otherwise pitiful skinks - they play their part well, but they nothing as models go. Where as these Tom Meier Troglodytes have bags of character, looking as though they'll actually do some serious damage, to whatever their go to attack.

Got to say between these, the Lizardmen and the coldone riders I'm really enjoying painting them in all their forms, which hopefully results in - a reasonable stand-alone Lizardman army ready for BOYL,who needs Slann! :lol: :lol: :lol:
