Back to the future! New pics of Tette-Ekko

As the One year anniversary of the blog approaches, I am thinking a lot about the army that launched it all... the Lizardmen!!

So, I will be trying to take a few new pictures of some of my favorite Lizardman figures, as well as the Temple of Blood.

To start things off, here is a real favorite of mine, Tette-Ekko.  He was a killer in the game, with the ability to redeploy units in before the game started, but bombard units from 'space' with comets!!

He was also very fun to create and paint.  As you know, I love painting my spacescapes, and the Lizardmen were fantastic for that subject.  If you have seen my scratch sculpted Engines of the Gods, you know what I am talking about!

I used baked sculpey and green stuff to create the palanquin.  Fortunately, there is not a single drawing or miniatures to represent him, which gave me full freedom to do as I pleased!

I added a few other bits, and then a modified old edition skink as the 'Baby Mage Priest'

I loved creating the star map on the floor of the palanquin!

And some images before painting:

Here's a video that was shot years ago at a tournament.  It was brought to my attention again by the folks at Parti de Protection Des Hommes Lezards:

  2. Excellent work. I am very impressed. I will definitely add you to my blog list. There is a lot to learn here.

  3. Truly inspirational James. The freehand work here is sublime. I guess it really pays to have an artists background eh?!


    1. Have you seen any of the 'mini mnurals' I have done on some of the other dioramas? Ah, those are fun!!
