after a debate between vampire counts and lizardmen, ive gone for the scaly option, and just thought id say howdey to all other lizard collectors =] ok s im starting at the end of the month (23rd-26th-ish) and figure its best to get a battalion, and im thinking of a saurus hero, and maybe a couple of skink priests for that little bit of magic support untill i play biug games and have a slaan, i have no idea on a colure scheme tho, i want to move as far away fro blue as possible =] anyways ill b around here often and keep u all posted lol
i edited my post cos i now have a colure scheme, and wondered if any one liked it, here goes:
flesh= dark engels gree basecoat, snot grren highlight, and gradual highlihts adding scorpian grren to snot green untill almost pure scorpians green
scales= liche purple, with a very light highlight wih warlock purple
all weapons amulets etc gold with a slight hawk turqiose wash to add a ancient look
teeth and claws bleached bone and eyes wil be yellow
the skinks are exactly the same, but a highliht of scorpian green and white will be added, and thewarlock purple highlight will be much heavier
thats it so far, wot do u think? all advice welcome =D

The color scheme seems pretty decent, but you have to remember that such colors will not fit on every single unit you end up taking. For one thing it's a good idea to give cold ones a different color scheme from your lizards to make it clear that they are support animals, and Salamanders might not look as good as Saurus in your chosen colors. But with a little bit of flexibility the colors will work out fine. After all it's your army! Make it the way you want it, and if nobody likes it, who cares?
Sounds good for the skinks and Saurus.... like Tojo says though, hopefully you switch up the colors of the cold ones and sallies e.t.c., since they are all different beasts!
I like the liche to warlock, it's a combo I use on my TK.
As for me, I am also using a different color scheme, that blue looks just a little too, toy like to me. I've been going with shades of gray for the Saurus and Skinks with pink and purple for the bellies. My cold ones have a metallic look to them, but buried under greens, gold and bronze sort of comes shining out. Old blood has his own colors, but keeps the gray here and there.
I am thinking that I want them to look a little sinister overall, thinking they are like dragon men. Been fighting against the forces of Chaos too long... becoming a little like ghosts.
Looking forward to hearing how you progress, paint and battle wise.
colour schemes are always a matter of personal taste, if you like the look of it then go for it. As for myself, if its painted neatly and based then it's and applaudable job.A Saurus hero is a must. They are one of the best cc characters in the fantasy game at hero and lord level.and im thinking of a saurus hero, and maybe a couple of skink priests for that little bit of magic support untill i play biug games and have a slaan
As for the skink priests, i would suggest no more than one myself.
Leave him at level one with two dispell scrolls for smaller battles. In bigger battles where you want to go magic heavy, you will still only really need 1-2 level one skink priests as with the new edition their magic dice don't augment the slaan and they shouldn't be using up his "base" power dice anyways.
You will find that one priest, a slaan and a couple units with the correct sacred spawning will be quite sufficient IMO,
