Lizardmen Troglodon: In-progress: The Body

More progress on the Troglodon for the Lizardmen. I’ve posted the head already, but this time it’s the body and limbs.

The first pic is the highlight of the scales, with additional lining between the larger scales. Bone and white were highlighted along the edges of the limb scale rides and the spines. The sail and claws got an edging of black to separate them from the scales for later.

The second pic is the red underbelly, sail, and stripe patterning, with additional black spotting of random scales. I opted for a red slash for the pattern, running along a parallel line down the Trog’s flanks. The claws were a dull bone color, with a wash of Agrax Earthshade, then highlighted with bone/white. This was then washed with Athonian Camoshade (a darker green). This helps separate the color of the claws from the highlights of the scales. After that the claws got a final highlight along the edges with pure white.

The tail is next, then on to the ornamentation and the rider.

    Man that’s a sweet paint job!

  2. Absolutely love it. Did you use a glaze for the red pattern on the body? The transitions look great.

    • The base red was Khorne Red, with a Seraphim Sepia wash (the same wash the yellow-bone scales got). Then I highlighted with Mephiston Red and Yellow, keeping the highlights sparse. The wash helped blend the red into the yellow.
