My recent splurge of new skinks must have inspired me, as I’ve been casting a critical eye over the sad state of my Warhammer Lizardman army.
First up was a refresh for one of my really, really old saurus regiments. These were probably the first Warhammer miniatures I ever painted, and boy did it show. I decided to try and see how well Army Painter Quickshade would work bringing life to a fairly flat paint job on these guys.
Bad case of shiny-itis here, nothing that can’t be fixed though…
I think this is a good improvement for minimal work
This one’s had a hard life, but is looking a touch better
Quickshade dip, matt varnish and rebasing has done a lot for this guy.
The Quickshade has brought out more detail and in a more subtle way than the dark green wash this saurus originally got
This old metal saurus with spear is the best version of the saurus GW has produced IMO. The old plastics weren’t great, but the new ones don’t looks as good as these old metals.
Well worth doing IMO, no longer a unit I’d cringe to put on the table.
Next up was some new terradons. I always used to include one on the table, but they’re fielded in units these days so I needed to repaint my existing one and give it some friends. I’m not even going to show you the old paint scheme. Yellow and blue, what the hell was I thinking?
Lovely dynamic pose on this miniature
This sandy brown scheme is a bit more subtle I think.
