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 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.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      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:

      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.
