Water Skink

I had a few ideas for this round, but decided on a safe one instead. I've now painted five of these, it's one of my all time favourite miniatures.

 I based the feathers on pheasant tails, then added other colours as glazes.

The freehand scale patterns are great fun. I've used this on many Lizardmen models before, but this is perhaps my best execution of it. I used screenshots from the recent Total War game as reference.

Another go with resin as water effects too, with the same tricky problems. I suppose it looks ok though.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

A lot of comments about the eyes.  Funny thing is, I found them to be one of the easiest parts. They're so big on this model that you can cram a little extra detail in there.

I really wish I had more time. A busy work rota and 2-4 hours of sleep each night interfered with how much I could have put into it. This probably would have been the best thing I'd ever done or at least my favourite if I had spent another week on it.
