One of my biggest gripes on a lot of judging: you want an extra 10 points? Take the pic on a good background or a better base. The mini is not changed but the score is better.

 

This is terrific. The color highlighting could use some more pop but that could be the light too. The color choice is marvelous and the underbelly of the lizard really looks like that "soft leather" skin like a snake.

 

And +10 for the reuse of aquarium parts. I have more of this stuff lying around from my fish keeping days. And any reuse is a great idea!

I was a bit limited on basing material because I was making it in store.  That meant I couldn't really use the flocking and stuff I normally use for basing, since it tends to make a godawful mess.  When I get it back, I intend to add a bit, and maybe use some weathering powders as well to give a bit more variation on the ground.

      Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.
       

       
      This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).
       

       
      Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.
       

       
      This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).
       

       
      Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.
       

       
      And this is the Sea Elf team.
      We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).
       
      Making a start on Sorcha:-
       

       
      Painted the furry collar on her cape.
      It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).
       
      Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.

      I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.
       
      It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.
      Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.
       
      I will happily include any monster I think will fit.
      A Tarrasque will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.
       
      I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your)  fun to create.
       
      EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.
                This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.
       
      EDIT: And now it will also include Undead!
       
      ***********
       
      Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.
      The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.
      Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!
       
      He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.
      Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.
      With this he had convinced the men to follow him.
      Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.
       
      They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.
      He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.
      Nothing would stop them!
       
      Finally they reached a clearance.
      The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.
      They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.
       
      Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.
      Birds flew away, trees where falling!
       
      Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.
      A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.
      One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.
       
      Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
       
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!

      Any Spaceport bar, where hard-bitten adventurers gather, will have a regular willing to regale strangers with tales of Lady Vulnavia's exploits, and most of the tales contain a reason behind her always veiled face. Is she secretly an exiled alien princess, or was she badly scarred duelling the King of the Space Pirates? Only the Lady knows and she's not telling.
       
      Presenting Lady Vulnavia, woman of mystery and leader of the Starstriders. She was part of the (now OOP, I think) Killteam:- Rogue Trader boxset from Games Workshop.
       
      Not one of my best paintjobs, but I'm still pretty happy with how she turned out.
