Default Lizardmen Paint Scheme.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I was wondering if there are any websites with different lizardmen paint schemes.

Please don't list the lizardman painter thing on the GW website... It doesn't really help.

If you have any please post them here, or give me ideas on where to find them.

Thank you.

There shows you 2 paint schemes, the saurus and the cold one. Those are the two most common ones. The green is dark angels with snot green highlights... I'm not sure about the lighter part.

http://uk.games-workshop.com/lizardm...ing-started/4/ there is how to paint a blue one...

Well you could try liche purple skin with tentacle pink scales.... ???

but what i think works well (based on lizards and snakes and the like (in the real world!! Honest there is one!) is black skin and bright contrasting colours, IE yellow, red, orange etc. The only thing is that you can't really varnish the models (unless you use a true matt varnish (IE testors dullcoat) as otherwise they look slimy (its a gloss black thing!) IMHO! It looks good, is fast to paint and most of the sacred spawning colours can then be used for crests/scales!

Hope this helps (BTW, the purple/pink thing..... don't EVER do it!!!!!!) ;D

Although, I've no idea for the colour of shields and calvary. I was thinking orange.

If you want to get really fiddly, you might want to check out some of the stuff here...

I've been using this as reference for my Cold Ones lately.

for the lizard men i REALY like a mostly black scheme.. i dont have a lizardmen arm, but of all the oensiv seen at GW games, my favorites by far have been nearly all black...i dotn knwo the exact colour, but its a more realistic black, not just pitch black, but not quite a dark grey.

other colours used are Bright yellows..place them inside the small cracks from the scales, use it for highlights on scale edges, for teeth and claws, and, if your a good painter, you might be able to pull of Yellow War markings down them, but dont try it if you arnt, or it just looks like you've spilled some paint.

for the actual scales, dont paint them yellow, just highlight edges and maybe tint a little..but dotn make them all out yellow or they just look weird, and onthe side u didnt highlight, put the yellow in the little cracks/indents of the scales and body.


for cloths/belts and armor, DONT go yellow. yellow cloths make them look dumb, go for a more dark browny colour.

iv seen two armies like this, one painted clothing yellow and it made them look too bright.
but he highlighted and did his facial markings realy good.

the other guy, they must have been budies or somthing, because he had nearly the same army but with a dark browny, leathery looking clothing/armour/belts. but the facial markings he had looked like crap.

so, i think if you combined both aries, they would look amazing.
