'How I Paint' Series: Seraphon, Saurus Warriors

Painting Seraphon: Saurus Warriors

From the Colours of Seraphon post, I decided to paint the Saurus in a Komodo Dragon style colour scheme. I was very dubious at first as I haven't seen any sort of tutorials on this. But now they are done, I'm glad I did. I went for a under dry brush and glaze over painting technique (which is now my favourite technique).



But first of course, undercoat Black.


I then base coated them all in Stegadon Green


I then done an all over dry brush of Straken Green


Followed by a lighter dry brush of Etherium Blue and a final focused dry brush of White Scar.


I then used Caliban Green and added lots of drops of water to make a glaze to paint the bellies and skin. The scales were painted with a glaze mix of Death World Forest.


I then dry brushed the scales with Origi Green.


The teeth and claws were painted with Zandri Dust base, Agrax wash and Ushabti Bone layer.



The Gold was Retributor Armour and Fleshshade. And the shields were under dry brushed, then glazed with Mephiston Red and over dry brushed with Wild Rider. 



Next stage was the base them, which i done in same way as the OldBlood




So here they are!

  4. Love the models, I can't believe how well they have come out! You wouldn't be able to help me out, or point me in the right direction. I'm struggling to figure out what's paints they have used here for this seraphon skin?

    1. Hi Josh, Thankyou! Yer they are turning out pretty well.
      My best guess on the unit your talking about if using GW paints would be Base of Stegadon Scale Green, layer on skin of Temple Guard Blue and Scales Macragge Blue, all over shade of Drakonhof Nightshade, then layered again of Temple Guard Blue and Macragge, followed by highlights on skin of Skink Blue and Scales Calgary Blue.

      Hope that helps

  5. Great I've gone out and bought the extra paints needed! Do you know any good tutorials on laying because I started following this warhammer tv one and it came out completely different! So I'm going to strip the model down and start over!

    Regards Joshua

      Try this technique. Gets great results for a blue skin tone.

    1. Hi, really sorry, it's an auto correct, should say Ogryn Green which is actually Ogryn Camo under the layer paint section.
