Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

In Cold Blood Part III

Looking good, scaley buddies!

Sorry for the long radio silence - yet another Ofsted inspection.

However, work has continued apace on my son's Lizardmen - specifically the Carnosaur.

As with the previous one, I set to work with the airbrush. But this time I did it over a white primer, giving a much more vibrant colour.

A couple of filters and pin washes help add a little more depth

And then some purple stripes.

Final daylight colour check on the skin before detailing and the base reveal it to be... well, blimey. A bit on the bright side. 

Helped along the way by having come company when I paint; and, as an added bonus, I found a use for those bloody mantic orcs. 

Here's the final beast with the base and detailing done. 

Overall, I'm very happy with it - and perhaps, more importantly, so is the Eldest. I'll update this with the rider when he's finished but up next:


  1. That is cracking good work.

    1. Thanks Roy. Pretty happy with it - the thing packs a visual punch.

  2. Tremendous job, love the bright colours too. Hope the Ofsted went well?

    1. Not particularly :-)

      I'm very happy with the colours.

  3. Wow, this is a tremendously cool paintjob. I love how it turned out. I'm being forced to steal the idea at some point! :)

  4. I don't know what an ofsted is; sounds like some sort of large lumbering nasty beast, like an overfed, overgrown and dimmer-witted cousin of ogres. :P

    But the saurian beast looks great!
