Hello everybody, Banzai1000 is back with best wishes for the new year and he first models for this year’s Armies on Parade project of mine. Interested? Click to find out more.
This Carnosaurus was a christmas present of 2014! Now, one year later, I finally had the time and motivation to paint it and to create a base. For the main colors I chose violet, orange and turquoise. It was also the model that gave me the idea of building up a small army for my this year Armies on Parade.
I used this model to reassert myself of the colors I wanted to use for the whole army. The golden parts were done with Retributor Gold, Reikland Flesh, Liberator Gold and Silver.
This is the first of five Saurus Knights I will paint. As you an see, it is colour-wise a lesser “variant” of the Carnosaurus to keep within the colour scheme.
I painted this model a while ago and rebased it with a roundbase. All the wooden stuff on the base is natural material.
What do you think and what is your project of the year? And has anybody a good solution for modelling larger amounts of water (for my display board)?
Thx Alex, now all the wooden material i used on the bases is natural stuff i simply found outdoor. The green leaves in the foreground is a part from GWs plastic wood kit. Also the snakes are from GW, Bastiladon kit. The brown leaves on the bottom i found in the internet. Check for suppliers for tabletop or model railway.
I will definitely be doing that!
How do you keep the natural material from rotting? I used moss a couple years ago but I found that it turned brown over time
Actually i left the wooden materials drying out for a longer time, i never found it rotting ( like wooden pieces you may find on a Beach). May be you can conserve it with some matt varnish, which i dont know. The effect on moss i know, may be all the things are still rotting with different timelines. Green materials like the moss seem to rot faster. Not the best answer though…
Very nice paint job.
I have just got myself the new Seraphon box and am working on some test models.
Would you mind sharing how you did the blue skin?
Hi Hari, i used Sotek Green mixed with Temple Guard Blue, mixed further with Baharroth Blue. Last accent with Ulthuan Grey. Finish this with a very thin layer of Waywatcher Green.
Oh man, that's a win right there. well done.
Well done, I am tempted to stop my 40K projects just to do this model.
Your painting is just flawless! I love the purple, would you mind sharing the recipe? Hope to see more from you this coming year 🙂
Thx Zeuso! For the purple i used Naggaroth Night washed with Druchii Violet. For the darkest areas you can use some Athonian Camoshade. Then drybrush with Genestealer Purple, Lucius Lilac and for the Last accent Ulthuan Grey.

Beautiful job, my friend! Especially like the purples GW have mixed into the classic paint scheme lately. How did you make the base in the first picture (the log and leaves)?
