Monday Miniatures: Lizardman (part 2)
Sometimes too much of a good thing just isn’t enough. This week not only do we have a second lizardman, but two new artists to share their art with us.
Mantic has yet another project up. This time it is the relaunch of one of their flag ship projects, Kings of War. It’s an okay deal, but the mega bundles on their actual website are already pretty cheap. This isn’t really something that should be getting crowdfunded IMHO, but in a week or so it has raised $153K.
So I spent the weekend working. Fortunately I started this mini last week when I was painting the other lizardman – so if you notice a similarity, that’s why. I’m submitting a WIP because I think this one is only about 80% done. I want to do some highlights on the tail and chest and some patterning on the shield yet.
Arjen did a great job painting as always, but this week he got a new lighting rig, and the difference is very clear. The colors are so much clearer than they are usually. That is an investment that will pay serious dividends.
Magnus chose a color scheme that is similar to last week, but a tad more restrained. Good work on the blending!
Dirk is just showing off. Seriously though – I love that bandoleer. This week he chose to paint a primitive tribesmen with a black dragon scaled loin cloth, because if your underwear is made of dragon, you must be a badass.
Newcomer Jo joins us this week with a very eeriy take on the lizardman. I love the glowing eyes and the subtly defines musculature.
Last but certainly not least we have Viktor who presents us with a twofer. The detail and subtle effects on the skin and leather of these two are outstanding. They are contrasted very nicely by the outrageously colored turtle shield. Its a great contrast.

We need two more minis to finish out the year – please send me a link to one of the ones in the Vampire pledge that you would like to see painted.
