Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Some Slann Army updates - here the Cold One War Hounds with alternative Handler , a couple of childhood Slann 'conversions' which have just been repainted - the pot pourri 'Headdress' was made 28 years ago (strong hairspray in Lustria) - a new Slann recruit and WIP Slann Cold One rider. Ketil Trout is staying in Berlin and fixing with wire one of my broken Scorpions - he brought also 4 great Amazon and the Talisman Zulu as gifts.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Hi again, Slann progress has been slow as i ran out of shields, need to acetone alot and i discovered wash/ink which means going back and reworking about over Slann which i cant face doing yet...but here are afew more single Slann painted the last months, and a Venom Tribe unit (which need wash colour - plus about 20 of the crouching / blowpipe figures still need to be cleaned with acetone) and a long term WIP project of getting a unit of 40 Human Slaves together - due to the high costs of the original models i am creating a mixed unit - almost in the style of Slann Slave gladiators ... just did the Talisman Zulu who still needs his shield. Photos came out really dark, sorry.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Slann progress also slow due to working on enemy units- rather than creating a new thread here are some "Enemy of the Slann" ' - various Settlers in Lustria- including Halflings (a peace treaty may be signed with them) , Tribal Orcs - including Oldhammer, Scotia Grendel and mainly Ral Partha (15 more to paint) and a unit of Orc Skeletons from Scotia Grendel - worrying times for the Slann...current project is a unit of Halfling Skeletons from a recent Kickstarter project

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Back on the Slann: and cleaned camera lense so these should be brighter now. Just finnished a preslotta Slann , 2 Eagle warriors and an 'Amazon?' from Ketil Trout (thanks!). Then went back to the very first Slann unit i painted and added a little bit more detail - they are still quite rough but some how i like them - a unit of 15 to be used as a primitive Spawn Band or Bull Slann or to bolster the Alligator Warrior ranks. Added a photo of non Slann Frogs from Mantic which i could use as scouts or levy. The original Alligator Warriors are now in acetone so i hope to have them done before the New Year of the Coatl.

Fantastic stuff. Must be one of the biggest collections after GoblinLee and Golfag.

No, I'd say his easily out-stripping me - with painted figures at the moment, as my Slann/lizardmen haven't seen the painting table in almost a year! :?

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Thanks Otto/Sean! i was lucky and as a child bought a second hand army to add to what i had, then when 4th came out bought as much Slann as i could at the Edinburgh G.W in a reduced price box. Seeing your thread recently inspired/motivated me at last to start to clean the shock elites and get them started. I found Goblin Lee's blog when i got back in to Slann, amazing! especially the 3 unreleased Slann but really an unbelievable army. Hope to see more Slann from Paul sometime - those preslotta Cold Ones are really beautiful. Just going to upload the last days Slann progress, then no more uploads until i complete some units. (Otto i will check the post box today for the new recruits - no post in Germany since the 23rd)

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

At last painted one of my oldest models - the Coatl. I was always too nervous to paint and did not know how to deal with the plastic flying base. 2 days ago at last got the courage. Then painted Chief Hintsa (lvl. 25) on a 4th ed. Cold One. He will lead the Southern Lustrian regiments. Working on the idea that the Central Lustrian Authority had been at war with the South for a number of reasons including that the central authority had outlawed the unclean practice of eating Human Settlers. Despite this still being practiced by Hintsa's followers the ever growing threat to the Slann from invasion has meant a unified response and a temporary peace exists between the Slann tribes. Hintsa's tribe also claim the traditional right to always be placed on the right flank of the army in battle - this may have disastrous consequences,we shall see... (not happy with Hintsa's shield but will re do later). plus another Venom tribe and an Eagle Warrior just finnished.

Re: The sun will never set on the Slann Empire

Very nice indeed Pygmy, the coatl in particular is great, a riot of colour in Lustria. Photos very bright and clear too, very much looking forward to next update.
