OK, next batch of Troglodytes done with their only bases still to do, but to all intents finished, until then.

Enjoy

Yeah, all together they probably would cut quite an impressive sight 8-) , unfortunately, current plans means they won't be all on a table, at the same time :( , as all the games their taking part in are fairly small to standard sized games (1000 to 3000, I know for some - that's big, but as Harry said at a recent gathering for GROG, "for Paul a thousand points is a skirmish game" :lol: and in truth, it is - as the Lizardmen Coldone riders without banners, musicians or heroes come-in at around fifteen hundred points, on their own, but they do look good, amassed 8-) ) Hopefully, a GM for at least one of the games will let me lay them out (as table fillers :o ), but not use them ;) . So, why am I painting all these figures, because they've sat in one of my to do boxes for way too long and need a touch of TLC. :D

Here's hoping :D

If, you've following these post - you'll know I've been painting up part of my collection of early Lizardmen / Slann in preparation for BOYL, and a few days ago I said I'd take my figures out of their boxes and take a few pictures so that you could see them all, as you'll not be seeing them at BOYL as the games their taking part in aren't really big enough (the largest being 9000 points a side) So, here's my pictures and if you follow the link below to my blog you'll find a few videos with a running commentary. AS ever my pictures do me no favors.

Hope you enjoy

For me that is exactly what warhammer should be! 9000+ points, fought over two days, epic amounts of lead on the table and stuff of legends!

Not quite sure how to re-act to the term 'Oldhammer porn' :oops: :oops: :oops: , lets just say this part of my collection is on the exotic / rare side; and after a considerable period of time, starting to come to fruition which others may find interesting! 8-) 8-) 8-)

On the "to do front" I'm painting another twelve troglodytes, and next up will half a dozen flying beasties just to give me some fast moving troop types and I'll then consider the addition a couple of monsters, before BOYL. After that - I'll paint up the remaining pre-slotta Lizardmen and Slann to bulk out what I've already got painted, followed by the more modern stuff I've purchased, which folks have produced to fit-in with what I already have, or that's the current plan on the run up to winter break.

Well needless to say this weekend didn't quite go according to plan, as the boss wanted a bit of work on the garden rather than time at my painting table, so just managed to get this done.

Enjoy

Whilst waiting for more Lizard types to come out of their second bath of Dettol (I don't know what their previous owner used as undercoat, but it's taking some shifting!), I daubed a bit colour over some of the Amazonian types I picked up from Vanquish last month, These will be playing the part of the more tribal types!

The paint removal isn't going well, still have a oily film over most of the models in the latest batch, so have dropped the lot into a bath of heavy duty paint remover, I've therefore been concentrating my efforts elsewhere repairing old figures and daubing a bit of paint on some classic lead. The latest piece a Chaos demon from the early eighties with GW's 'new' contrast paints, not sure if I like the results given the effect is basically a heavy wash, which given the conditions I applied the paint (hot and sunny), wasn't too successful, but they did the job very quickly and indicated the areas for high-lighting. What do you think?

Initial results
