Lizardmen Temple Guard

Here's some of my Temple Guard.  Looking back on them, there is so much more I can/want to do.  Even with their faults, I still enjoy the models and the way they came out.  I have 20 Temple Guard, but only 10 are "finished".  The other 10 are mostly done and just need some time put on them.  

As for the paint scheme, it's my standard Saurus colors and techniques.  I think the red and blue go to together real well and the gold is a great contrast.  I definitely want to work on the gold some more.  

The next unit up on my Lizardmen post list are my plastic Saurus Cavalry.  Pulling them off the shelf and dusting them off, I had some minor repairs to make.  I also saw a few small opportunities to get their paint jobs up to snuff.  Look for them next week sometime.

Lizardmen Saurus Cavalry

Continuing with the Lizardmen theme, here are my Saurus Cavalry.  These are the older edition cavalry that are combination plastic Cold One and metal riders.  I've always loved these models.  I started Lizardmen at the tail-end of 6th edition, so the current plastic ones were already released, and I still really like these models.

Even though I painted these models years ago, I think parts of them still hold up.  There are definitely room for improvement, but due to the rather large size of my Lizardmen army, it would be a large undertaking.

Lizardmen Skink Chief

I felt that the lack of Lizardmen on my blog was an unfortunate oversight.  Lizardmen were my first army for Fantasy and still one of my biggest point wise.  I had originally painted the army in different colors and in a different style than the style it is currently in.  I repainted the entire army in a 3 month period.  For the most part, I think it still stands up, but have started to think about revisiting them.

The model here on display is a metal Skink Chief.  The simple pose and equipment on this guy is just great and kinda rare to find on hero level characters of the era.

The skin is a lighter blue that I used for all my skinks.  His larger scales were done in a mustered yellow color and are also consistent throughout the army.  The shield is of the same style as the entire rest of the army, skink and saurus both.

I plan on posting some more of the army in the coming days.
