Kerotk, the Servants of the Old Ones

Since the 2012 Painting Challenge is scheduled to begin in a few days, I thought I'd create the PLOG that I'll use for the Challenge (and afterward). This will be my painting log for all things Lizardman like.

I have to go home this weekend and do an inventory of what I have and what I need.

From memory I think I have:

1 20 model unit of Temple Guard (2 months)
1 20 model unit of Saurus Warriors(2 months)
a bunch of Skinks (2 months) [Update: 48 models- At LEAST two months.]
Two Salamander Teams (1 or 2 month)
ONe Razorback Team (1 month)
A Stegodon (1 month)
Three Terradons (OOOOOLLLLLLDDDDD Models! 1 month)
SWARM BASES (3) (1 month)
and an odd assortment of special characters, etc. (1 month)

That totals 12 months already in the "waiting to be painted" pile.

I have a Slann ordered and, when it comes in, Midge913 wants to paint it and enter it into a Painting Competition.

More later as I get organized.

Like the 2011 Painting Challenge, I intend to post pictures in my Army Showcase of the models as they are at the beginning of the Challenge and gradually replace them with the painted models as the Challenge progresses.

I did this with my Dark Elf Army and now my Showcase is full of painted models. It gave me a visual "checklist" of things to do and things that were done. (check it out at the link below)

.... now all I have to do is learn how to play with them....

Kerotk's Army is now Showcased.....

Well, I've now updated my Lizardman Army Showcase to include some of the models I have ready to paint for the 2012 Painting Challenge Follow the link below to get to the Showcase.

I've decided to start the month of March with the 3rd and 4th rank of a 20 model Saurus unit.

Saurus Unit 1 with Spears (Click on the pic to enlarge).


This will be a good starting place. The back ranks of a 20 model unit will let me transition from the Red / Grey / Black / Purple of my Dark Elves to the blues of the Lizardmen.

I decided that I am not going to vary the GW color scheme that much. After a bit of searching I found these pictures of Poison Arrow Frogs ..... I think that I will use the bright Blue, Yellow, and Black as the basic guideline for the Army.

They will look bad ass once painted in that scheme!

"Wulfe gestured around at the strange metal buildings. He didn't like the angles, the proportions, the lines. They didn't look like any Imperial buildings he had ever seen, and that made them wrong."

I couldn't agree more. These are going to look nice.

Thats a great idea using reference pics for colour scheme ideas. I'll be following again mate - looking forward to seeing your army progress.

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."

"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."

"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
