06039 Lizardmen with Spears

Recommended Posts

I started painting these in 2007!  I had received two sets on clearance from a gaming website.

I picked them up again briefly in 2011.

I had just purchased a bunch of Vallejo Game Colors.

I recently picked them up again to get them off the shelf of shame that they seemed to be permanent fixtures of.

Sadly, the VGC Paints were not able to salvage.  One of them was more done than the others, so he looks a little different.

The front right of the first picture.

I finished them off quickly with Reaper paints.

 

This was the first time I primed minis white, then built up layers of very thinned basecoats.

It made these guys much brighter.

 

Sorry some of the pics are out of focus.

 

I am thinking to do the next set more black/red or more of a realistic lizard scheme.

Enjoy.

Man these would be so awesome during DnD night. I love the bright colors, and your artistry is always top notch. Beautiful to look at and it’s gotta feel good to fill in the shelf of shame :)

 

Merry Christmas!

They look wonderful.

 

As for realistic?

Don't underestimate Nature my friend.

These look realistic if you look at the right kind of lizards.

I like these a lot too. What catched my eyes, is their bracelets.

Thanks.  The silver one was my first ever nmm attempt all those years ago.  When I finished off the other three I had more experience with the technique.  I like the copper and gold better.

      This is an animal companion to a kobold Ranger in a module.  The character art has it light green with dark green stripes.  A little cliche, but I don’t care.
       
      There are two arm choices.  I went with the ones making it look like he was grabbing something.  Got him ready with white primer.

      My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.
       
      Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.
      Race Human
      Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1
      Str 16
      Dex 19 (+2 human)
      Con 14 
      Int 13
      Wis 14
      Cha 8
       
      Favored Class Ranger +1 HP
      Trait: Rich Parents
      Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)
      Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)
      Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike
      Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken
       
      Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:
      Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth
       
      Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:
      Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.
       
      He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.
       
      Let me know what you think.
       
      My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.

      Hi everyone. Here is the fifth Orcs I painted last week. 14198, Gangorak the Reven Hero sculpted by Ben Siens. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and ink.
