    help with a lizardmen scheme

    Hey people,

    I'm starting Lizardmen soon and was wondering what to use for a color scheme. I eventually found a pic of a frog that looked cool: http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n...1025094918.jpg

    What I'm looking for is what paints and techniques I can use with this scheme. I'm not that good of a painter, and i haven't even done any washing or blending before, so don't give me any immensly difficult stuff!

    Thanks,
    Tyrannis

    I'm terrible about knowing what colours to use so I won't say anything about that. I usually judge it by eye as I paint.

    Lizardmen don't have much flat space on them (it's all scales) so blending probably won't be used much. Washes are excellent for the amount of detail on Lizardmen and much easier than most would imagine.

    If you ever do banners, use the reptilian/feline eye on them. It's simple and very striking. Fantastic design.

    Don't spraypaint, basecoat or undercoat your models black. It will kill the brightness of your colour scheme (and most likely ruin any yellow parts).

    I suggest doing a test model (post pics of it if you want feedback).
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

    That should be a really nice colour scheme for your lizzies. If did decide to use a black undercoat CBrate is right but if you use a coat of Iyanden Darksun of citidels paints that should be able to do a good yellow over it.

    I dont think you have to be a good painter to do that theme at all just take your time to do it useally works for me. Also yes post some test pictures ^_^.

    i'd base them white, then use orcshade green for your first layer drybrush goblin green on that. then for the ridges on top either deviate from the scheme and color them, or use Gretchin green for the ridges.

    for the underside, start with a bubonic brown, then go up to a yellow you don't want to bright of a yellow maybe mix with a brown to reduce it's sharpness.

    then give the top a wash with the green citadel wash and the body with sephia wash.

    what i think would work
    Painting: 20 quarrelers

    Pretty simple:
    Do your scales in [darker] green, drybrush [lighter] green over them (where there's not much paint on your brush)
    Orange on the underside, then drybrush yellow. Pick out the details with the colors of your choosing.
