Welcome to Librarium Online!
I love it, looks really vicious. colors are great wish i had though of that scheme. Do you have pics of any saurus with that color scheme? Looks great can't wait to see it finished!
Lovely strong contrast, livid color scheme, zema likes. It could use 1 more highlight on the front paws though, that and the points you said will making for a striking model!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I'd love to see that color scheme on your other models!
Thanks for the comments so far.
The carnosaur is not following the same scheme as the bulk of the army, so there aren't any saurus or skinks painted like him.. I did attempt the inverse on a skink (orange scales and black body) but I found the body was too smooth and there wasn't enough areas to highlight the black (and I'm not good with black I don't think), so I ditched that scheme. However all my models (stegadon excepted) will have the striking orange on their scales. I think I did make a thread with the test skink, but I will post the pic here anyway.
Those are some really nice lizards you have there. I was wondering how you painted the grey scales on the carnosaur? I've been trying to make that colour for a while now.

Yeah I haven't had much past luck highlighting black very well.. Thankfully, the detail on the carnosaur scales lent themselves very well to drybrushing. I did try successive highlighting layers on one patch, but it didn't look natural.
This is chaos black drybrushed with codex grey, then drybrushed with fortress grey (quite lightly, easy to modify it for varying levels of brightness) followed by a wash of devlan mud to darken it a touch and make it dirty, and finally a coat of watered down black ink. I chose ink rather than wash due to its higher pigment and shiny finish, a layer or two of badab black would probably work equally well.
Glad you like him, fellow Radelaidian.
Dude that looks awesome! Rep
I don't know where you live but if you are going to games day I would enter him into Golden demon, you won't win (the guys who do scare me) but you could go far
