Looking good. I am jealous of the number of Spear Lizards you have.
People willing to trade their freedom for security deserve neither and will lose both.

Nice work Daargrim!  Like to know someone is getting their brush wetted.

I guess you know what army you will be facing in a couple of weeks!  I'd get more minis painted if we played more than 1-2 times a year I think.

minor update...claws and teeth painted.
Although painting claws and teeth on 49 figures isnt really a "small" update I suppose....

Great progress

ive got a game coming up next weekend so in order to get at least SOME of these guys done, I split the pile up and working on finishing half of them.  started working on the bases:



and I discovered something that I had forgot about...on the flayer, I had cut off the side of a dwarf vulture head and buried it in the sand.  trying to make it look bloodied.....kind of a crappy picture.

I had to hit the applause button for that severed head in the sand.  Great work!

So I actually have been working on a few other Stygian as I finished up my warriors/reapers.  Haven't been posting pics since I wanted to "debut" these figures at a game I had last Friday. 

These figures are actually 99% done, but I don't have current pictures yet.  Here are some in-progress pictures:

Tree Devil and Priestess.  Had a devil of a time, so to speak, painting the Tree Devils skin to get it how I wanted.  still not 100% happy, but I'm done with it.  As far as the Priestess, I think by total conincidence I ended up with pretty much exactly the same color scheme as Cirith's.  Didn't notice that until I had painted it already and was browsing through some old posts.
