This month sees me making an effort to get more Slann forces painted in preparation for the Oldhammer game we plan to run at Knavecon on 01 March. We are using the Mordheim rules for this one so 30 odd models is lots for that system. The Lizardmen here are Bob Olley sclpts (with the exception of perhaps the leader guy in the armour). They have languished on my lead heap since the early 90’s so it is nice to finally get them painted! I couldn’t afford to spend too long on them so I fell back on the standard drybrush and ink techniques, nothing too fancy there. I couldn’t resist doing a little green stuff roots and leaves on the bases. It didn’t delay the work flow as I needed to chop and disguise the integral bases with green stuff anyway.
The 10 Lizardmen takes the total up to 27 models painted for the Slann force. The plan is to bulk up each of these units to bring them up to full combat strength for the army later on. For now it’s fun coming up with the first bunch of models in each unit and integrating them into the developing army colour scheme.
Here is a close up of the Slann Hero who is now painted up well enough to be game ready. Room for improvement on him later, as he is fun to paint he will end up being a time sink no doubt.
