Very nice  Thumbs up

Looks like you've gone in completely the opposite direction to me on colouring  Wink

Just hoping I can squeeze in enough painting time to get them finished - half-term and a daughter's birthday don't help unfortunately  Cry

Cheers!

Thanks. Looking forwards to yours.
It was an odd set of colours to get right without becoming too GW.

Those look great, the colour really suits them, as well as being away from the usual greens/browns we see on them.

 Cool

Think yours are magnificent Meirion. You going to post your spears here too? I'm planning to get mine done in the next week or so...

Thanks Lemmey.

Absolutely love the colouring on yours.  Are they modelled on leopard geckos?

Haven't started my spears or swords yet - still dithering on how many to stick on a base and in what configuration - however I have the base of crossbows I entered in the fantasy/sci-fi section:





They kind of came about by accident as a test piece for the raptor riders' colour scheme I was trying to paint a special base of goblins, but had to abandon them due to time running short!

There are some other bits that I need to finish including riderless raptor test-pieces - that I'll post as and when.

What rules are you basing for?  Mine are for Dux Bellorum/HotT on 40x30mm.

Cheers,

Meirion

Mine too are on 40x30, I use Hail Cheesy Caesar. I think I've got six or seven of each on a stand, including cross bows.
As to the lizard, I think they were Leopard Geckos, when I get on the other computer I will confirm! Wink
Think your scheme is great, but I wanted mine to be broody like Moorcock's Melniboneans after the fall, a race in their end days.

Looking forwards to further comparrisons!

Lemmey's do look creepy. Smiley But green and yellow is too close to a rugby sweater for my taste. I can't imagine dark elves soaping each other's backs in the shower while singing "I met a young maiden called Arwen..." off-key and dropping cigarette ash in each other's beer. Or rather, I obviously can, but I don't want to.

The rest of the army pack! They're not on 40x30 as previously noted, but 30 x 60mm Evil
Swordsmen



Spears




Crossbows - wasn't sure about this sculpt, but after painting, I REALLY like them!



The Dark Prince, shamelessly inspired by Morecock's Elric of Melnibone.




Was worried they were too monotonal, but... Yup, really like them now and have ordered more!
