Lizardmen Archers (06046)

After painting a bunch of orcs I was pretty sick of green skin tones, so these Lizardmen Archers are blue.

Always good to have a palette cleanser when a project has you burned out.  Besides switching colors, I often switch from painting hordes of similar things, to a few unique things.  Or from several small things to one big one.  My favorites are the quick and easy minis to quickly get from start to finish after a long project.

Also, why they got to be Lizard "men" Reaper?

Perhaps the more gender neutral "folk" is copyrighted.  Plus apparently the alternative is to slap some mammalian breasts on them like with the Nagendra XD

I only painted 2 out of this 4 lizardfolk set, and was planning on painting the other two in about a year or so to track any improvements in my skill level.

This is such a useful practice.  I haven't ever intentionally set out to paint something as a scale of improvement, but I've painted similar things with a year's gap and it's always such a surprise by the amount of improvement you can make in such a short amount of time.  There are minis i painted a year ago that I thought I couldn't top, and now they seem simply average.  This hobby continues to amaze me.  It'll be cool to look back on these in a year after you paint the next set!

I love reptilians!

Good job!


It's pretty clear, the one with the loincloth is a male ( he's hiding something) while the female doesn't need to..

Really nice and popping colors!


Great idea on following progress. I just got a mini, that I painted some 10-15 years ago. It's always nice to see, what kind of progress (if any) has happened.

      Last year I backed the Lost Kingdoms Miniatures Cuetzpal Kickstarter.
      It fits right into my Lost World so ...eh.. I bought almost everything, and this year I backed their STL 3D files Kickstarter and got all the rest...
      Anyway, this is the first one I painted.
      Tlemiahuatl a Fire Salamander.
      WIP here:
      Hope you like him.
      Praise and rotten tomatoes welcome.

      Good morning everybody and Happy New Year!
      So I actually had these painted since the very beginning of the year, but had to go out of town and couldn't get their bases finished until I got back.  So here are my first miniatures completed for 2020, four lizard men that Julie Guthrie sculpted for Ral Partha if I recall correctly in 1982-1983 with her series All Things Dark and Dangerous.  I've always really loved these figures and have had them on my pending list of stuff to paint, but finally got around to really painting them.  I painted each one in a different color because I wanted a bit of variety.  They did all start of though being covered by a good layer of Creamy Ivory (Reaper) and then I did washes on all that, and then afterwards chose the actual color and kept going.
      Anyhow, hope you guys like these guys!

      From the Bones 1 core set, a basic lizardman with typically primitive stone spear and turtle shell shield. This mini has good quality details, especially seeing as this is an early softish bones model.

      This lizardman was once a test subject for a number of different paints.  With no real way of knowing what was what I just visually picked out some paints and inks that looked like proper shadows and highlights and finished it off.

      One of my goals this year is to work through my pile of unpainted Bones from all the kickstarters.  First up, a mini that was used as a test piece and then put back to gather dust for a few years.  It was painted fairly quickly using glaze technique, which helped keep me from fussing over the details. One mini off the shelf of shame (or rather, out of the plastic box of shame).
